Ypres, a town full of history

For the entire duration of the First World War, German troops besieged the town. This front was called the “Ypres Salient” by the British defenders. The place became historic because the Germans didn’t succeed in conquering the city, in spite of violent battles that cost the lives of more than five hundred thousand soldiers. Things to see in and around historic Ypres:

First World War
In and around the city there are no fewer than 170 military cemeteries. For many, mainly the British, Ypres is the centre of remembrance of the First World War. More information about what happened in this part of West Flanders between 1914-1918 can be found in In Flanders Fields Museum, Ramparts War Museum and Memorial Passchendaele 1917. Menenpoort is a remembrance monument on the east of the city. This city gate was built by the British in 1927 in memory of 54,896 missing British solders killed in action in the First World War. The Last Post is sounded every evening here at 8:00 p.m.

Places of interest
Ypres has a rich history that goes back to the Middle Ages. Grote Markt and the old houses still standing around it give the city a medieval feel. There are also many historic buildings in the centre that give a good impression of that time. Lakenhalle, Europe’s largest Gothic-styled civic building, is such a historic building, as is Sint-Maartenskerk. Both were completely destroyed during the First World War and were re-built afterwards.

Walking and cycling
There are beautiful areas for cycle trips to the south and east of Ypres including through Gasthuisbossen and the Verdronken Weide and Palingbeek nature reserves.

Enjoy breakfast in tranquillity and read a book

The Kantine is where the hotel serves a breakfast buffet every day from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. It is also a tranquil place you can visit throughout the day to enjoy reading a book or to work. The name “Kantine” is, just like many other details in Hampshire Hotel O - Ieper, a reference to the town’s military past. The space is designed in such a way that guests, just like on a military base, sit together to eat and drink around a number of large tables. The tables and chairs are all recycled, which gives them a characteristic look. The terrace has comfortable deck chairs and can also be used throughout the day.

“Bang in the centre of town”

You couldn't get much closer to the centre of things in Ieper and the welcome exceptionally friendly. The rooms are quite small but more than adequate with large bathroom, comfortable bed, TV, coffee and safe. Ideal location for seeing the Flanders Museum, cathedral or the service at the Menin Gate. Overall - excellent.

“Excellent location, friendly staff.”

We stayed for two days, a group of ten. Hotel was easy to find and we were able to park close by down the street. On arrival we had an excellent welcome, the staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and had good facilities including free wifi. A great location, just off the main square and close to the Menin Gate.

“Great position and comfortable stay.”

We stayed three nights here in February 2014 and enjoyed our time there. The staff are all great, friendly, informative and very welcoming. I have a disability and nothing was too much trouble and they thought of things that might help without me having to ask which is always a bonus and shows great care. The overall decor is lightly themed to be military and functional but very well done e.g. bedside locker is a military crate, lighting has a 1940s feel and local maps are pasted to the wall. Everything works well and it was a joy to stay there. We were the only people there so they asked if we would like to come and have breakfast in their other hotel around the corner The REGINA which was also very good by the looks of it. Breakfast was plentiful and filled you up for a day visiting the sites. Loved the place and good value.

“An excellent, modern hotel in a perfect site.”

This small hotel could not be in a more perfect spot for anyone visiting Ypres. It is just off the main square, opposite the magnificent Cloth Hall and although it does not have a restaurant, the owneres know all the good places to eat.
