What is(are) your name(s)?
For how long have you been running a B&B?
Please share something about the history of your present bed and breakfast.
I had a youth-Pub in town (Ypres) for 13 years, that night-life became so hard and so difficult to combine with family life that I decided to do something else. During a holiday trip in Holland came the idea of starting a B&B in Ypres. We came home from our holiday and started immediately with the search of a new house big enough for our family and enough rooms for guest. We found our new house on Avenue Malou in Ypres. It was an empty mansion with a lot of work in it to make it a comfortable home for use and a nice place for our future guests.
What are the unique characteristics of your B&B?
The warm welcoming we offer to our guests: we offer a local welcome-drink and we give information about Ypres (Musea, Restaurants, nice Pubs, walking, ...) and our Bed & Breakfast. We offer free water (still and sparkling), coffee and tea during the day in our nice sitting/breakfast room.
