This family-run hotel excels in service, friendliness and helpfulness. I needed a special diet and unlike other places, it was simply no trouble to them. The location could not be better, close to Meningate and the town square. The rooms are modern and spacious. Don't miss this one!

Irrespective of price it was a real pleasure to stay in this hotel. The staff were happy to do anything in their power to meet your requirements, nothing was too much trouble. The standard of cleanliness was beyond reproach, and the decor unfussy and restful.
During my working life I spent many years living in hotels all over the U.K. They covered the whole range from cheap motels to some of the most expensive, and I can only think of one that I enjoyed as much as The Albion. This is not so much to do with bricks and mortar but the attention you receive from the personnel.

A hotel with comfortable rooms and a most welcoming staff. Ideally located for visits many interesting places in the Ieper area. A very enjoyable stay.

Having stayed at the Albion on previous occasions, I had no hesitation in booking 3 nights for my group of 14. We had stayed at a budget hotel in Amiens for the previous 3 nights, and the difference was the proverbial 'chalk and cheese'. Christiana and her staff provided their usual hospitable, helpful and friendly service, including arranging 3 evening meals for us in local restaurants (which were very good). Breakfast was varied and plentiful, our rooms were comfortable and background classical music provided a refined ambiance. The hotel is centrally located in Ypres, and just round the corner from the Menin Gate. It was always possible to find a parking spot for the minibus nearby. Although there is some traffic noise, I understand double glazing is to be fitted before too long. I look forward to my next stay there.

Preamble and message:
Hotels and their facilities have played a big part in our extensive travels. The majority have provided us with a good standard of food and accommodation as understandably the industry aspires to maintain their standards in a highly competive market place. But 'Standard' has established itself as the norm and visitors for short or long stays come and go without ever recording any comments one way or the other.

This message, therefore, is intended to point out that in our opinion 'The Albion', Ieper, goes the extra kilometre because charm, coupled with a natural sense of willingness to provide a higher level of service puts them in a league of their own and that leaves an indelible mark.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September and can't praise the staff enough for all their help and advice, nothing was too much trouble. The room was light and airy and the breakfast was excellent. The location is close to the square and the Menin gate. We can also recommend the bakery on the same road for delicious cakes and sanwiches, such a choice.

We have used this hotel for a number of years and have always had good feed back from our members. It is in a central location just off the main town square. The hotel is family owned and run with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms and amenities are quite adequate, very clean and at least as good as any hotel of this grade. We have stayed here with groups of between 35 and 45 people of a wide range of ages and backgrounds who have enjoyed the experience and will be happy to do so again.
