“A super experience”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

My wife and daughter loved everything about this B&B. The decor is simply lovely, the location is perfect (very close to the centre of the town yet in a nice quiet street), and breakfast was magnificent . We feel really privileged to have had a glimpse of what those magnificent Ieper houses look like from the inside and we gained a great sense of history.

Stay here for a real taste of luxury

Steven and Katrien were the consummate hosts; welcoming, engaging a friendly. The girls particularly enjoyed the welcoming glass of champagne!


If we come to Ieper again La Porte Cochere will now be the first one we will try for every time.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at La Porte Cochère in October 2011 and we wish we could have stayed longer. It is conveniently situated a 5-10 minute walk from the train station and another 5 minutes or so from Menin Gate. The B&B is elegant and refined and more than exceeded our expectations. The entire house is beautifully decorated and the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable.

The bathroom was incredible. It had a huge stand-up shower (hard to find in Europe!), a separate toilet area and the whole thing was very tastefully decorated. The only way to improve the bathroom facilities would be to provide shampoo and conditioner for guests and maybe a hairdryer. Make sure you bring your own as they don't provide these amenities at the moment.

The bed was spacious and comfortable and they even had complimentary bottles of water for each of us on the bedside tables. The breakfast was delicious, varied, and sizeable and we were able to enjoy some lovely classical music in the background while we ate. All in all this B&B has a very refined feel to it and we would go back in a heartbeat.

First visited in November 2010 and could not fault the B&B. This time returned with two other couples and were warmly greeted by the owner Katrien. A welcome drink and nibbles on the patio! Excellent accomodation and superb breakfast. La Porte Cochere is only a few minutes from the town centre and a short walk to the Menin Gate.
Visiting ypres? Dont miss staying at La Porte Cochere!!!

very nice B&B; the owners (= staff) are very friendly. The bathroom was nice, the room was spacious (although a luggage rack would be useful). The breakfast was really good. All considered: we enjoyed it a lot!

A beautifully furnished mansion house, with excellent hosts, in the very heart of Ypres. Steven and Katrien are absolutely lovely people who cant do enough to make your stay enjoyable. The house itself is gorgeous with many historic furnishings, the rooms are lovely and very comfortable and the food is excellent. Finally, if you have a motorbike, your going to love the "safe parking". Sleep well, then wake up to breakfast in the gardens then go explore.........enjoy!
