We stayed 3 nights in the lovely B&B run by Alain & Ann. They are wonderful hosts. The room we had was very large, spotlessly clean and bright. Alain helped us with locating all the sites we needed to see. He took time each morning to ensure we knew exactly where to go. What a wealth of WW1 area knowledge... More

Stayed for 7 nights room was very clean and comfortable. B&B was ideally situated for the sites we wanted to visit and Alain the owner had loads of local knowledge and was very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were great. Would return and recommend.

Wow is the first thing that comes to mind! The room was very nice with a shower, two sinks and a toilet with a mirrored door. The room was big and modern with enough room for my mobility scooter and Alan put a ramp in place for me to use to get my mobility scooter in the room. Both Alan... More

Fantastic place and a lovely couple, Alan & Ann, both Belgium, but speak English and enjoy a joke. The room we stayed in was exceptional, huge, clean with oodles of space. The room was completely open plan, with a glass walled walk in shower, very modern and you wouldn't believe the toilet, it had a mirrored sliding door, which when... More

B&B The Protea was perfect for my stay in Ypres. Alain and Ann are great hosts. Two of the kindest and friendliest people you'll ever meet. Alain takes time to sit down with you to map out a plan that's perfect for you and Ann's breakfasts are 5 star hotel quality. Thanks again!

We stayed with Alain and Ann for three nights around ANZAC Day, 2015. We loved the location, the room and the hospitality. Great breakfast and very helpful hosts. We stayed in the Frosted Fire room. Don't be fooled by the very plain exterior of the building. Our room was very modern. We can thoroughly recommend the Protea.
