It would be difficult to find anything about Abacus House to criticize. The hosts, Johan and Christine made sure that our arrival was easy and the house was immaculate.
A beautiful house in an excellent location.
The house is deceptive, the stone exterior hides a beautiful interior, and if you go to the top floor the views are stunning.
This is our second stay at Abacus house and Christine and Johan couldn't have made it any better, from the wine in the fridge to the Christmas decorations in the lounge, the house has everything you need to make your stay exactly what you need. The home will comfortably take 7 - 8 visitors without feeling cramped.
There is Wifi access in the house and a TV with some English speaking channels.
Parking can be a game of hide and seek, but Christine and Johan provide information about how to park on the street, however if you have a disabled badge you can park for free all day on the street and surrounding streets
The location is central, a 2 minute walk from the Menin Gate and Central Square and shopping, or a short drive to many of the battlefield memorials or other main locations of Brugge, Gent and Lille, Ieper is an excellent place to base your stay.
Abacus House is the ideal location a few minutes walk from the Menin Gate and all the facilities that the wonderful town of Ypres offers.
The house is everything that we could have wished for, spacious, clean, fully equiped and with lots of character. Johan was very helpful in explaining all that we needed to know when we arrived.
We had a wonderful time visiting around the area and would certainly use the house again.
What a find!! Abacus House is right in the heart of Ypres & just a 5 minutes walk from the Menin Gate (daily last post ceremony at 20.00 hrs every day) and the town centre. An ideal location for visiting the rich history of Belgium and the CWGC in the area. The house is self catering, huge and spacious with everything you need to make your stay 100% comfortable and luxurious. Six of us stayed in this amazing house and there was more than enough adequate room for us. We all agreed that we would definitely stay here again when we return in the very near future. Thanks to Johan, the owner who was very helpful and had great information about what the area had to offer. If I could give this accommodation a million stars I would!!
Lovely spacious, bright, well-appointed house is a central location. Very convenient for attractions. Warm welcome from hosts.
Really lovely house really clean and spacious. Very friendly hosts, will definitely be recommending this place to friends.
We have just returned from our second visit to this house, the first time was 2 years ago. We wanted to attend the Passchendale commemorations and the anniversary of Noel Chavasse's second VC and his death on the 4th August 1917. The house again proved to be an excellent base allowing us to take part in the fantastic events organised in the town of Ypres.
