Let me begin by saying this is now called the Kookaburra Hotel and if you are in Ypres (Ieper), THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY. centrally located, a very short stroll to the Menin Gate and almost in the Grote Mrkt square. Absolutely ideal. The staff / management are fantastic. Very welcoming, very helpful, friendly and nothing is too much...

Right next to the Market Square and Cloth Hall/Flanders Field Museum, this hotel can't be beaten for its location. Run by a friendly couple, the rooms are eccentrically furnished to resemble a WW1 dugout but contain all the essentials, including an incomprehensible expresso machine! Usual continental breakfast with rolls/cheeses/cold meat/yoghurt etc. Will definitely stay here if I return to Ieper.

Chris, the proprietor, was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were eccentric, dark colours and war themed but comfy beds and cozy. Bathroom very good. A very varied and plentiful breakfast. Wonderful location. I would stay here again.

Take a torch ! This hotel is, supposedly, decorated to replicate World War 1 trenches but really I think the previous proprietors just bought the cheapest paint they could find - black/brown or dark grey - something no one else wanted - it is hideous. The corridors and rooms are all painted these terrible colours. Lighting in the corridors is...

The hotel is not world class and the rooms have World War 1 decor and fittings but it works in a strange kind of way. The location is good though as some rooms overlook the main square, plus it's not too far from the Menin Gate Memorial. The breakfast offering is reasonable, but again not world class. We can't complain...

Stayed for the Xmas market. Good location. Clean. That's the good stuff. Hope in the sheet. Towel was threadbare. Shower basic and limescaled up. Breakfast average. Stay here if everywhere else is full.

It is called Hotel Kookaburra now. No one at reception before 3 pm. We believe the hotel was recently renovated. With (probably) limited budget they made creative choices. We liked the breakfastroom with view at the rooftops of Ypres. The parking facility is 10 Euro per day, it is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Perfect location.

Dont get there before 3, thats check in apparently and before that is out. Also have exact change or use plastic. Staff appeared friendly but were not helpful at the same time. The hotel seems to be themed in a basic military style which makes it appear very basic and gloomy even though the rooms had most mod cons. Iahd...

- Reception The people were extremely friendly and welcoming. They do this the proper way. - Breakfast The breakfast was good (see pic). All expected was there. - Room We loved the style. There is a mixed old (military) element in the hotel styling, which totally compensates for the oder state of some other things. - Bathroom The bathroom was...

Great location for shopping, Menin Gate, square, food. Good room, friendly staff when checking in, although found the guy who checked us out to be quite arrogant. It's a one way street, so you need to be clear where you are going and there is no parking on site. You can park in the street to check in, and then...
