Reviewed 9 June 2014

It is not difficult to write a good review about this hotel as it is simply perfect. We stayed for just 2 nights at the end of May, but enjoyed every moment. The receptionists are delightful and we used their help and expertise to recommend a Battlefield Tour (we were collected and returned direct from the hotel) and a also to hire the hotel's bicycles, which we enjoyed for a lovely morning's cycle along the canal.
The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The restaurant and bar area, including the terrace and garden are lovely and the food was excellent, both for the one dinner we ate in the hotel and the breakfasts. All the bar and waiting staff were professional and friendly.
There was also plenty of space for parking in the hotel's car park and the hotel is so convenient for the town, we did not use the car once during our stay.
I hope we have the opportunity to return before too long.

The hotel and staff cannot be faulted. All of the staff are mannerly, attentive but not overbearing. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The food is excellent and the portions are generous. As a Coeliac requiring a strict gluten free diet I can confirm that, over an eight day stay, the chef at this hotel prepared every meal correctly.
The hotel is situated a short walk from the main town centre and The Menin Gate, but far enough from the centre to be quiet and peaceful. There is an excellent garden and patio for relaxing drinks and meals.

This hotel is perfectly located a few minutes walk from the centre of Ypres.
The friendly welcome from reception staff set the standard for what proved to be a memorable stay. Our room was perfect and, like the rest of the hotel, spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was generous and beautifully presented.
We used the restaurant and bar on a couple of occasions and we were impressed by the quality of the food and, again, the helpful staff.
I have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel.

If I start by saying that we needed a taxi on our last day and when there wasn't one available - one of the receptionists drove us in her car instead - does that give you an idea of the level of service here? The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from the main square and 10 from the Menin Gate. The hotel has a pretty patio area with waterfall and a relaxing, light airy feel.

We had a twin room and it was immaculate, and the bathroom modern and exceptionally clean. The breakfast is comprehensive with some of the Danish pastries almost as big as your head. From the receptionists, cleaners, bar staff and breakfast staff - the ethos seems to be - service with a smile.

This is one of my favourite hotels and I am very fussy! My second visit to Hotel Ariane but hopefully not my last.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be excellent - we had a twin with a lovely view of the patio

Having been to Ieper many times this was our first stay at the Ariane. From first booking to departure nothing was too much for them. Rooms were fantastic. With 2 elderly family members it was also just a 10 minute walk into the main square and 15 to the Menin Gate. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Also if you book direct you get a much appreciated glass of wine on arrival.
