We booked a one night stay with friends and must say how impressed we were.
Normally our preference would be to book a well known large hotel chain so you know what you are getting. However, this lovely B&B caught our eye especially with the fabulous reviews.
The proprietor, Jo, emailed me a night before to request what time we anticipated to arrive and provided a mobile number so we could contact her should we have any concerns.
Jo offered a very warm welcome and showed us around the property and I must say we were not disappointed, the rooms were absolutely spotless, lovely comfortable beds and an amazing bathroom that housed a seperate toilet, large bath and massaging shower! Our friends were also very impressed!
Jo left us asking her to contact her if we had any problems and we had the run of to the hotel. We found that Jo showed ultimate trust in us and allowed us access to the mini bar (first drink free to welcome us) we just needed to be honest and advise her of what we took so we could be charged on departure - she called it 'The Trust Bar' (not sure the same idea could be used in Britain).
Breakfast was continental and in addition Jo offered a selection of eggs, tea and coffee. The dining room was clean, petite and over looked a small courtyard, that I am sure would be lovely in the summer.
Check out was quick and easy and in the sort time of our stay I felt we knew Jo a long time...very lovely, friendly and welcoming - definitely the heart of the B&B.
The location of the B&B was great...a very short walk into the centre of Ypres. We attended just before Christmas, so witnessed the beauty of such a beautiful town with Christmas lights making the cathedrals even more breathtaking. A lovely choice of restaurants to suit all tastes and not to mention the famous belgian chocolate shops.
I would love to return to Belgium and if we do we will most certainly be staying here again and would definitely recommend this B&B. Thank you Jo x
