We recently stayed for three nights with Alain and Annie at the Protea and had a wonderful stay. We were doing a tour of the WW1 Battlefields of Flanders and France and the Protea was our base for the Flanders section and was a great choice. Alain and Annie were wonderful hosts, our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We...

This B&B was a real find (and easy to find at that!). The breakfast was great, the fruit plate was different every morning and there was a fine selection of meats, cheeses, breads etc. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. Alain gave us a fantastic itinerary and background information for seeing a massive range of cemeteries, battlegrounds and...

Terrific B&B and thank you Alaine and Anne. Nothing was too much of a problem and you were free with advice and tips for touring the area. Alaine also visited us while we were cycle touring the area and provided WW1 points of interest and an itinery to go by, especially Polygon Wood. The rooms were roomy and clean with...

We both were never that known with WW1, but Ypres and it's history had gotten in our hearts We'll come back for...

The owners of this lovely B&B are delightful and do everything to make sure you have a pleasant stay. The rooms are spotless and well looked after by Anne who makes a different fruit starter for breakfast every day. A lovely little touch but typical of the hospitality of the owners. The room has an independent access so you can...

We stayed for three days, two nights. Upon our arrival, we were met by Alain and Annie - two of the kindest people you will ever meet. With only three bedrooms (each its own ensuite), a common room and a breakfast eating area, it is very comfortable and clean. Also, a play area outside with private entrance to our rooms....

Just back from a Three night stay at The Protea great B & B, great location and Allain and Annie the perfect hosts. Allain is also a mine of information on the First World War If you are planning a trip to Ypres The Protea must be one of the best places to stay.

The hosts Alain and Annie were fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Annie's cooking was exceptional and Alain was a fountain of knowledge when it comes to knowing the history of the Western Front. There are only 3 rooms and you feel more like a friend rather than the a guest. The Location is fantastic right in the...

Ideal for anyone wanting to tour battlefields in area. Proprietor so helpful with his extensive knowledge. We would advise anyone when booking to include breakfast, the quality and quantity will keep you going for best part of day. There is also advice on one of the best places to eat in the evening. Would eat there again with no hesitation....
