Dave K. (Leicester – UK)

Read the review written by  Dave K. about Skindles Guesthouse. He called it: “A jewel of a place with bona fide historical significance”. This is what he wrote “We have just returned from three nights at Skindles in Poperinge. The hotel can accommodate up to 24 guests across six suites of rooms. The Hotel was used as Officers quarters during the Great War; and the splendid suites and (most especially) the communal rooms sensitively honour and respect this proud heritage while offering beautiful and tasteful, comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Chantal and Peter are convivial, knowledgeable, model hosts and made our family feel thoroughly welcomed. We enjoyed exploring Poperinge and were well placed for Ypres (Ieper) for the Menin Gate and the ‘In Flanders Fields’ museum and the battlefields. We also visited Bethune in France to tread in the footsteps of a family forebear who was there in 1918 before travelling on to Cambrai. The building dates from the 18th century and carries its age well (although with steps and staircases consistent with such longevity). I cannot commend this venue or the owners highly enough. Bravo.”
