It was very nice and the food and service is quite good bedroom is quite nice bathroom weird but functional and very big and lots of room to do things not the most luxurious place to stay but it was a 4 for me.
Our stay at the Peace Village made our pilgrimage even more special as our accommodation and kai - food were all taken care of. Comfortable and spacious rooms - meeting room and outdoor area- and great bar to relax in. Nga mihi
Our class stay was absolutely amazing!! There was everythig you needed! First of lets start of with when you come in, you see a beautiful room, for the 5 people in my room; it was our dream room! The front and back doors, both easy to open and extremely usefull, the front door-opened by a key- was easy to open and come in. The back door -leading to the backyard- which was even easier to open, provided fresh air and a space to see the people next to your room. The interior, AMAZING! It was the coulor theme of orange, however; there are other coulors in different sections. The design of the beds was unforgetable! It was marvelous, the way they all were joined together made it so easy to communicate with friend below you! The matress was made out of memory foam which made it extremely comfy and enjoyable to sleep on. There was a table - could be used for different kinds of things, for example; we used it as a makeup holder- which large enough for all kinds of stuff. There was 2 wardrobes that were the perfect size for your clothes and any suitcases. The wooden stairs were not to steep and were good for getting up and down them in the night and day. The toilet was clean and working very well as well as the shower room. Overall; it was a perfect stay and I would 100% go there again! I would advise everyone to go there as it is cheap but colosally amazing! Eventhough my class and I are 10-11, everyone knew it was amazing!
Came here on a school trip to Belgium 🇧🇪 good was half cooked chicken in a pink sauce of god knows what and my room had spiders uncomfortable pillows/sheets and we could not use various facilities I would not recommend you stay here unless your other option is your car to be fair they do serve good tea so if that’s your thing go ahead. P.S extremely cramped
The Peace Village is an amazing experience. The accomodation is split into 4 blocks, each being assigned a different colour. We were in the Yellow block (see the pictures below). Each room has it's own en-suite, living area & sleeping area. It is spacious, warm, comfortable and secure. The staff were more than helpful, and often went out of their way to assist us. The food was exceptional, giving us a Continental menu at breakfast, a packed lunch before we left in the morning, & a 3 course meal in the evening. The evening meal usually consisted of: Home made soup (delicious), a Carbanara/chicken/burger/etc, with all the trimmings (also delicious), followed by a yoghurt or Chocomousse (Chocomouse was beautiful). They also cater for vegatarians, Gluten Free diets or other special requirements (just inform them at the time of booking).
Simon (the Peace Village historian) took us on the "March of the Pheonix", which was very intesting & educational. He also answered all the questions we asked. This walk around Messines gave us the chance to see the memorials in the town, including the New Zealand memorial (we also joined in with a bit of the Maori ritual, which was intruging). It would be good to see the Maori's performing their Haka at this memorial - maybe on another trip here.
For individuals or groups travelling here to tour the many War Graves and memorials along the Western Front, this is the perfect location to base yourselves. It gives so much scope to travel to the various sites (most of them only an hour or so away).
I can't recommend the Peace Village highly enough for the whole experience. They excel in every aspect of hostelling.
