I booked Gasthof Zweerd for my school battlefields trip and it was superb. The staff were incredibly helpful and organised all the rooms in advance (and very quickly sorted out some re-rooming for me when we arrived). The rooms very clean and although a couple were a bit cramped with an extra bed for the students, they were all satisfactory. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and you couldn't have asked for better food; excellent quality and a lot of it! They also provided a packed lunch for us from a local bakery which was also very good.
For anyone else thinking of using it for a school trip I would really recommend it; it was so nice to be in centre of Ypres so the students really got a sense of being in Belgium and particularly Wipers! Before we arrived I was a little concerned about the students maybe sneaking out into the town, but Ypres is a quiet little town and once the Menin Gate ceremony is over it quickly closes up (and our students were so tired they just wanted to get to bed anyway).
Excellent, friendly and welcoming welcome, would definitely recommend it.
