SELF-DRIVE TOUR HOTEL OPTIONS (The Ypres battlefield) The Ariane Hotel Ypres centre
When it came for me to choose a photo for the top of this page I was going to show an image of the hotel building, like on all other pages, but the Ariane is different for it is the owner Natasja and all her staff who really make this lovely hotel. They are the Ariane Hotel!
The recently re-furbished and extended 4-star Hotel Ariane is one of our favourite hotels and for this reason the one we used most often for our self-drive tours. The Ariane combines the luxury of a top-class hotel with the peace and tranquility of a spacious landscaped garden, whilst at the same time maintaining a position close to the centre of this beautiful town (the main square and In Flanders Fields Museum 5-10 minute walk). We particularly like the Ariane Hotel (like the Albion and Main Street Hotels which we also recommend) as it is a privately owned hotel and so not part of some large remote faceless chain. Natasja, The owner of the hotel, has a lovely warm style and takes great pride in ‘leading from the front', so is often seen helping at tables and guiding staff in helping guests in every way possible.
The English speaking staff at this hotel (especially those manning the reception…) are extremely helpful and will do their utmost to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
