I’m a local, born in Ypres in 1978 and lived my whole life here. So I’m knowledgable about this region and I speak English very well. I always wanted to have my own business. I started end 2007 with this hotel, have taken over the formerly “Shell hole hotel” and turned it up into an up to date hotel Ambrosia. After the renovations, I opened in March 2008. My ultimate goal is having guests being so pleased that they want to come back. Returning guests is the nicest compliment I can get. In my spare time, I like cycling and spending time with the family. At this moment, I’m also learning spanish. 


I’m polish and as a student, I have spent many holidays in Belgium working as a student. After my studies I came to Belgium to learn Dutch fulltime. In that year I ‘ve met Vincent…  Now we’re happily married and have twins of 16y. Sinds 2011 I help Vincent with the business. I love meeting new people and I look for the breakfast, administration and finishing touch in the hotel. In my free time I read, run and cook 🙂 I love healthy food and physical effort.
