    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ariane Ypres

    Average

    from

    Less than 5 minutes walk to the main square, the hotel is in a good, quiet location. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was pretty good. However, the hotel itself is pretty bland and reminded me of a conference facility. We also were put off by the war memorabilia in the reception as it would have been nice to escape this given what the whole town represents. Not sure what justifies the 4 stars and thought it a bit pricey for what it is.

    Friendly helpful staff

    from

    We had to cut our holiday short at the hotel, but I wish we could have stayed as intended as it was a really relaxing hotel and I cannot fault the staff. They were even prepared to drive us to the station to go to Brussels!

    We did the Flanders fields tour and even my husband was moved even though he did not know much before we went, we learnt so much from Dave, our driver. Thank you Dave!

    We intend to go back as Ypres is a beautiful place and considering what happened it has emerged stronger for its experience.

    Great hotel, great welcome, great location!

    from

    This hotel is about five minutes from the centre of Ypres, has good parking and spacious rooms which are clean and contain coffee/tea making facilites ( a novelty abroad!). The staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and varied. They also have a spa room which you can book for your own private use (20 euros/hour)- sauna, jacuzzi, massage shower. We ate in the hotel twice- take the 20 Euro menu- it is very good althiough has no choice, but includes 2 glasses of wine and water- very good value- and the restaurant surroundings are beautiful. We will go again here, and recommend it, particurly for couples and groups.

    First rate hotel

    from

    Very clean and airy modern hotel with on-site parking, attractive gardens, etc, almost in the centre of Ieper.

    Service was helpful and efficient - the staff all spoke good English.

    The clientelle were mostly British, and in the main World War One enthusiasts. The hotel has a small display of WW1 artefacts and posters in the public area.

    The rooms were clean and well sized, with a separate shower and bath. The bar area was light and welcoming.

    We would visit again

    Great place to stay

    from

    Just back from our third stay at the Ariane. The hotel cannot be faulted. Good location - a few minutes walk from the Grote Markt. Excellent buffet breakfast (Flemish style).

    The staff cannot do enough for you.

    I wouldnt stay anywhere else in Ieper. Try and get a room in the new extension - for a little more space (but no problem if you can't)

    Fantastic Hotel Ariane

    from

    We have just returned from staying at the Ariane, as yet again it was like home from home. Superb accommodation as is the breakfast and staff. Highly recommended.

    Great location, service & kitchen!

    from

    We made a tour through Flanders to visit everything WWI-related. We stayed at the Ariane & it was one of our favourite places. They have great accomodation (the sauna!) & a very good restaurant with cheaper prices then you can find downtown Ypres. We also made the Battlefield-tour organised by them, & just like all the people that work there it was only fun & relaxing. The waiters & hotelstaff were the friendliest we encountered in this otherwise allready very friendly country.

    Two thumbs up (three if we had an extra one ;).

    We Loved The Hotel Ariane

    from

    12 of us stayed at the Hotel Ariane, Leper, Belgium.We were on a four day Golfing Holiday.

    The Hotel could not be faulted, the food ,the staff, the accommodation, the service was all first class. The Hotel is situated three minutes walk from the Square and four minutes fron The Menen Gate. We are certainly going to stay there again in the future.

    Homely and comfortable

    from

    Myself and four members of my family stayed here on 4th June 2004. We arrived very early in the morning, 6 AM to be precise! We were given Coffee by the Night Porter, and on the arrival of the Receptionist, ushered into Breakfast! which was outstanding!

    We were given access to our rooms at just after 9 AM after the Hotel Receptionist had arranged for them to be cleaned and valeted early, especially for us. The rooms are clean, bright and very comfortable. Breakfast superb, and the evening meal delicious! The Staff friendly, courteous and helpful. We will return!

    Warm and personal

    from

    We stayed at Hotel Ariane during a winter tour of World War I battlefields on the Western Front. We received a warm welcome and the service was excellent. The breakfast was out of this world and dinner also very enjoyable. The management seemed to genuinely care about the guests. We would highly recommend the Ariane.

    ... who fell during the War and have no known grave. Later in the evening, there was a Last Post ceremony that was very emotional. Not a dry eye around.

    We also got to walk in the trenches. Albeit they were reconstructions, it definitely gave you some idea of the living conditions. This trench was actually found and excavated by amateur archeologists and opened to the public in 2003. The original trench was dug in 1915.

    ... of the AIF to the fighting in this part of Belgium. We had sufferred significant losses, per head of population if Australia in 1916-18 and I felt those soldiers deserved more credit. That night we headed up the road to the Menin Gate, through which many Australian soldiers would have passed on the way to the battlefield, you may have seen the very evocative painting by the same name in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra? We spent some time just reading the names of ...

    Today was one of those days that make you appreciate the ease of travel around Europe compared to the distances we travel in Australia.

    This morning our day started with breakfast in Germany followed by lunch in the Netherlands, afternoon tea in France and dinner in Belgium! The time it takes us to drive from Proserpine to Rockhampton we drove through 4 different countries!

    So tis me first wake up after a sleep that was desperately needed. Kind of surreal that I am actually in Flanders fields. So I dragged me butt out of bed....at the crack of 8...holidays no need to rush I am thinking. I did the usual and headed to the breakfast and lo and behold I got the place to me self. Its interesting as the hotel is in Menin (Menon) just a few clicks south of Ieper. I tried with no luck to find a hotel in Ieper and found out it they seem ...
