Passchendaele Anniversary – 31st July 2017

The 3rd Battle of Ypres, popularly known as the Battle of Passchendaele, began on 31 July 1917 and raged through the next four months as summer turned to winter and the landscape of Flanders turned into a moonscape of shell holes filled with mud, muck and slime. Sadly too, it was the scene of over 300,000 British Army casualties. July 2017 marks the centenary of the start of this iconic battle which, along with The Somme, has come for many to symbolise The Great War.

We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
