Many thanks for your nice review. We are delighted you appreciated our services.
Thanks again and see you again soon :-)
Brilliant, the plastic mattresses lovely and clean covered in a lovely white paint. The breakfast gave me great joy with the overwhelming choice between sub-standard cereal and horrible toast. It was joyful to sleep in a crampt room with 6 people, 30 degrees+ and no...More

I checked your comments on the places you visited in Ypres and all our partners get the worst quotes possible. I know all these people personally and I know that they work very hard to offer a good quality for money to their...More

We never ask our guests to go on Tripadvisor to post positive reviews so the majority of reviews that you will find here are the negative (sometimes ridiculous) ones.
We process 40.000 bednights every year and are still strong in business after 14 seasons.

Be aware for "Fake News" :-)
See you soon :-)
