Apartment was beautiful and modern while at the same time full of history with many artefacts from the First World War. Situated next to the Menin Gate where the last post is sounded every evening. So sad that we could only stay one night, would have happily stayed for weeks.

The apartment was excellent, location was second to none, the host worked hard to please. Thoroughly recommend this apartment, we were very impressed.

A little difficult to locate initially.

Meningate House is perfect for Ypres (Leper) and the WWI sites. It is 2 minutes walk to the middle of town! The owner is so knowlegeable about the area. He will take you to the Meningate Ceremony and will advise about the WWI places.

The 2 bedroom flat uses a communal stairs, not private. To go from the living/kitchen downstairs to the bedrooms and toilet upstairs you take the communal stairs hall used by anyone staying in the 1 bedroom flat. The stairs is not private and anyone can use the toilet by our bedrooms! Maybe it should have a little sign 'for guests of flat 1 only'. Also, from the twin room, you go into the communal hallway to use the toilet. So in the night, take a robe!

The accommodation was wonderfully located for the Menin Gate and the centre of Ieper. The building was part of the history and was beautifully presented inside with all facilities catered for. Parking was easy and there were plenty of places to breakfast. The host was extremely welcoming and helpful and certainly not intrusive. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Amazing accommodation with views over The Menin Gate, perfect location for The centre of Ypres and within minutes of all the local history (WW1 being most pertinent for our trip). The owner is the Chairman of The Last Post association and gave us VIP access to this most amazing of memorial tributes. Very knowledgable about all things WW1 and the surrounding area, ensuring our stay was of the finest experience. The Menin Gate House cannot come more highly recommended by the three of us that stayed.

EVERYTHING. What a marvellous place to stay in a beautiful town. The owner (Benoit) could not have been a better, nor informative host. A 'must visit' location for anyone wishing to pay respect to our fallen WW1 heroes. This accommodation and location cannot be rated highly enough: 8 Star!

Absolutely Nothing.

Lovely welcome from a host who could not have been more accommodating. Thanks to Benoit we were able to watch the Last Post ceremony from very close quarters. His help was very much appreciated. The apartment has unbelievable views of the Menin Gate. We were able to gaze out at it from sunrise to sunset. This and Benoit's enthusiam and position within the Last Post association mean that a stay at Menin Gate house is a holiday with a difference. The top (two) floors apartment is beautifully decorated, spacious and contains some very interesting memorabilia. It was very peaceful up there and we weren't aware of the other visitors. Bathroom extremely well appointed, lots of hot water and very clean. Sofa bed very comfortable with lovely bedlinen. We appreciated the British TV.

We would have liked a toilet facility on the top (3rd) floor but understand that this is not possible due to the nature of the building. The stairs need to be negotiated in good light. Some of the cutlery was not quite as clean as expected. This was a surprise given the spotless nature of the rest of the apartment.

We stayed at Menin Gate House for 4 nights and could not believe how amazing this place is, Benny meet us on the first night and gave us prime position during the Menin Gate service and it was something we will never forget. We ddid nearly all of the battlefields and memorials and they are all so handy from this location. The rooms are decorated in honour of our troops that paid the ultimate sacrifice and its people like Benny that will never let anyone forget. I can highly recommend this place to stay and just enjoyed it so much, if we ever get the chance we will be back to stay. 15/10 and highly recommended!!!! Thanks Benny "Lest We Forget"

Excellent position, tastefully decorated and warm host. Everything you need in the well equipped kitchen. Spacious lounge room and bathroom. We would highly recommend this establishment.

For some the stairs would be a problem however this would only limit a few people
