... clearly it's kind of just there. I look to try maybe get a train to Brussels to the waist the day away a bit easier but by the time I had done that my Coach would been here to take me to gent. One thing I will say is the supermarket is amazing so much cheese in different types of food it would be nice to spend a little bit more time here to discover that for myself a bit ...
... things into a case last thing last night, rolled out of bed and was ready for a very prompt 7.20am departure.We had decided to go the cross country route to Dover. Shorter but infinitely prettier than the motorway, as it takes in one pretty Kentish village after another and I just love those white "clapperboard" cottages clustered around a village green.
Our first triumph was driving into the Port of Dover on the dot of 0930, which was our ...
... petrol station which I knew was by the hotel. What could go wrong? Followed the satnav, taking the fourth exit at the roundabout. I saw the hotel and parked in the car park at the other end from earlier. Took skis out and hid everything away from view. Started walking round the back of the building, then noticed where I had previously gone round the back was now fenced ...
... battles, and was where McCrae was stationed. As the only Canadian on the trip, Andre kept looking at me when mentioning the poem. Of course, I know it by heart, but as I said, I had never given much thought to McCrae's circumstances. Andre gestured to a concrete bunker, with doorways not much taller than an average human - in fact, I was the only person who didn't have to stoop to go inside. It was dank and smelled, and water dripped from the ceiling. ...
... Tonight there were less people there, and there was a piper playing. Being there for three nights has been a great experience.
We looked at doing a couple of tours and decided on the "Over the Top" tours to the Ieper north Salient on Saturday, and the longer tour to Fromelles and Pheasant Wood today. The word Salient has a number of meanings, and one Dutch meaning is a shallow bowl which describes the topography of the area around Ieper.

Historical Traveler Reviews Albion Hotel Ypres
I stayed at the Albion with my nephew on June 16, 2005. This is an excellent hotel with a first rate staff, located close to the town square and Yeper sites. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay there again on our return.
Loved the Albion
My family and I stayed at the Albion and we can't say enough good things about the friendliness and hospitality of Christiane and Peter. Their helpfulness in getting us started on our visit to the Ypres area and the warmth of their reception was wonderful. We look forward to the opportunity of a return visit and will certainly stay at the Albion. We strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Ypres.
Favourite hotel in town
On several business trips I have stayed at the Albion Hotel. Still my favourite place in town! Very friendly and quiet, with an excellent breakfast.
The Albion - Look Nowhere Else
This was the second time that I stayed at the Albion and I can not say enough about it. Christiane and Peter go out of their way to make your stay in Ypres most enjoyable and will go to great lengths to help you in any way they can. The hotel is just a stones throw away from the square and the Menin Gate. The rooms are most comfortable! The breakfast/lounge area is most inviting. They serve a wonderful breakfast and in the evening it is nice to have a nightcap in the comfort of the hotel. Priced just right, you can not go wrong with the Ablion.
Stylish and welcoming. Everything about the Albion is calm and efficient. We have been six times now and will use it many more times.
One slight drawback is if you get one of the top floor rooms in a heatwave as there is no air conditioning.
Albion Hotel saved the day
Our documentary crew stayed at Hotel Albion while filming a documentary on WW1. Their staff went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help things run more smoothly on our production. After filming in the cold and windy fields outside of town, it was a great to have a wonderful place to spend the night. We stayed an entire week and did not encounter one problem. I will definitely stay there again!

I have stayed at the Albion Hotel twice, and I cannot compliment it enough.
The owner, Christiane, is very friendly and helpful. During the first stay, we required a doctor which unfortunately led to a hospital stay. Christiane and her husband were marvellous the whole time, from contacting the doctor to running us to the hospital. Extending the subsequent booking of the accommodation was no problem to them, and they were very supportive the whole time (I would also add in passing how impressed I was with the Belgian Hospital system).
The Hotel is of a high standard, the breakfast buffet is first rate, the rooms are impeccably clean and tidy and the hotel is centrally situated in the town of Ypres.
I will certainly be staying there again.
A bit of luxury at an affordable price
A luxury hotel in a mid - budget price range - great value for money. Beautiful rooms and facilities, wonderful host and staff, great breakfast. Right near the Square and Cloth Hall, excellent location for Battlefield visits
FAULTLESS. YOU WON'T FIND BETTER.
My partner and I stayed at this hotel last year for 4 nights. The hotel is without fault - rooms were spotless, roomy and comfortable, breakfast was good quality with a good selection and the staff, especially Christiane the proprietor were polite and courteous. I could not fault it in any way.
A warm welcome
A party of 11 of us from the uk stayed 3 nights in the Albion whilst doing a battlefield tour. The rooms were spotless and the staff very helpful. The hotel only does breakfast, but there are plenty of good restaraunts(sorry about the spelling) within walking distance. Highly recommended!
