“Good location for Battlefields and Memorials for World War 1”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We stayed at the Hostellerie for one night whilst visiting the battlefields and war memorials and is located only a few kilometres from the main sites. Our rooms were adequately sized for a one night stay but would be too small for longer stays with the same applying to the bathrooms. However all very clean with slippers and bathrobes being provided. The bar is very good for an evening drink with superb views over the valley and the same for the breakfast room.
We did not dine in the restaurant as we were going to watch the Last Post being played in Ypres but has a good reputation and comments from those who have stayed previously.
Overall extremely good value, great location and equally a great breakfast and would stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the valley will have superb views.

We attended Messines with the London Scottish Regiment for the 100 year anniversary of the battle. The hotel was perfect, high up on Mont Kemmel, fantastic views of Heuvelland, (hilly land) below. This area is charming, pretty little villages, bumpy hills, pretty farms, all beautifully maintained. Our room was large enough for us and two kids, bathroom again fine, all clean. The hotel is very nice, good bar for pre dinner drinks, incredible balcony for dinner outside with views to die for and a beautiful panelled dining room. Ibrahim, the lebanese maitre'd, was charming and looked after us very well, he even took our 8 year old daughter in to the kitchen to meet the chef! The real star of this hotel is the restaurant. Our meal was the best we have eaten in some time, typical of some french hotels, the rooms are very reasonable, with the restaurant taking a large percentage of the final bill! But IT IS worth it! The owner Kristine was lovely and nothing was too much trouble, she allowed us to check out late on the last day. This area is very special, for its dreadful history, its beautiful countryside, Ypres nearby, plenty of places to eat/relax, museums and this great hotel. We WILL be back, we love it here.

Room Tip: Go for the view!

Great stay in an independent hotel. Fantastic views over the valley. Convenient for sightseeing in a beautiful part of Belgium. Restaurants only a short drive away if not dining in. Friendly and helpful staff suggested a great running route and good local beer and wine. Rooms compact and a little quirky, but very clean, and bed wonderfully comfortable. Hot breakfast is available on request in addition to tasty cold options that one would expect. Hope to go back.

Room Tip: Choose the valley view - it's what makes the hotel.

Six of us recently toured Flanders in old MG cars and stopped for two nights at this hotel. Our rooms were not the largest we have stayed in but they were beautifully clean and comfortable and, being situated on the top of the only hill, we had a wonderful view as far as the eye could see. Breakfast was a delight and dinner was superb. We ate superb food and drank excellent wines outside, on the covered verandah, and were looked after by the very charming Lebanese Maitre d'. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was served with pleasure, a smile and his excellent attention to detail. Our stay would not have been half as good without his service. We have very happy memories of this hotel and would return again.

Room Tip: Room 104 is a little larger and has the wonderful view.

Very well situated on a spectacular hill top with a magnificent view, an excellent cuisine, efficient and helpful staff and comfortable, luxerious bedrooms. A quiet, restful place, worth to be kept as a secret (but that would be too egoistic).To come back to soon.

Room Tip: Take a room with a valley view.
