Recently stay here and enjoyed it. The staff are really friendly and nothing is too much of a problem. The hotel rooms and public areas are keep clean to a very high standard and in January the room and areas open to guests were kept warm. It has been well thought out and caters well for disabled clients with plenty of ramps for ease of movement. There is also a lift for disabled users to travel between floors.
Our stay included breakfast in our price and there was basically something for everyone, ranging from "cooked" to continental and most things in between.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of the town of Ypres, therefore to visit the town is about 15-30 minutes on foot depending where you want to go and the route you take.
We had a car and with the aid of a tom-tom the town centre was a 5 minute ride on a Saturday afternoon. The hotel and rooms are built useing a mixture of modern and traditional wooden building materials and this gives the appearance of a typical grand European hunting lodge. The hotel is set back from the road, which means, depending where your room is located, you never hear it (I doubt if you would if your room was at the front). There is plenty of space for parking cars and vans and a fairly large outdoor are for dining or taking coffee during the warmer months.
The restaurant, having stayed at a number of BW, we have found the restaurant's to be either dire or very good. The Flanders Lodge does not disappoint. There is a menu du jour that cost €20 per head and consists of 3 courses, it is great value if you like what they are serving. The Carte is not extensive, if this was because it was winter, I don't know. Though, the most expensive item at the time we where there, was an Irish rib-eye steak at €25 plus €2 for a sauce if desired. This compared to basically the same price for the same item in the town centre. The quality of the produce used was first rate and it was prepared well.
Would I stay at Flanders lodge again, yes without hesitation and yes I do recommend it as well. less
