The accommodation standard here is very high (we stayed in the Taupe Room). The room was spacious, quiet, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. There is a shared kitchenette and lounge area but as we were the only guests we effectively had an apartment to live in. Our hosts, Luc and Dani were amazingly helpful in all aspects of the stay...

Just returned from a two night stay at Le Pourquoi Pas in Arras and I can't say enough about this lovely B&B! Spotlessly clean, well appointed rooms! They were able to accommodate our family of four in one large room and all of us were extremely comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and very well presented. Luc and Dani... More

A rainy night in January, in Arras, and we were delighted to receive such a warm welcome. We stayed in the Mole Room which was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Our hosts were friendly and happy to help with restaurant recommendations and provided a library of tourist information. Its 10/15 minutes walk into the main restaurant/bar area. Continental breakfast... More

Excellent B&B. Stayed here in October 2014, using this as a base for touring the battlefields of the Western Front. Could not have found a better place. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and I stayed in the garden room with private bathroom. The B&B is 10 minutes walk from the two major squares of Arras and at the end of... More

We stayed at this wonderful B&B in October 2014. Arras is ideally suited as a base for visiting the battlefields of the Western Front and Flanders and Danielle and Luc's B&B was a welcome home each night. The accommodation is very tastefully furnished and is spotlessly clean. There are 2 bedrooms and each opens onto a lounge area with a... More

The outside is unassuming, on a quiet street in Arras a 10 minute walk to the train/city cetre. The inside, a treasure. Danielle and Luc have done wonderful things with this home. It is very welcoming, decorated with attention to detail and makes one feel comfortable right away. The room we stayed in was spotless with all needed amenities. A... More

I travelled with a friend on a pre xmas break and thought this charming B&B was wonderful. I highly recommend it and would love to return. From the outside, the street doesn't look anything special - but the inside is very special indeed! Danielle was very welcoming and helpful and the Taupe room was just lovely - spacious and gorgeous... More

Having struggled to find decent accomodation in the Somme area we decided to go slightly further afield to Arras. It's a lovely town and the B&B is tucked away in a safe, quiet street about 3/4 mile from the centre. The property is deceptively large and fastidiously clean - how the owners manage the unbelievably high standard is a mystery... More

Danielle and Luc have created a wonderful place to stay. In our many trips to Europe, this is the nicest accommodation, for our budget, we have every stayed in. The rooms are thoughtfully furnished and colour coordinated. There is comfortable beds and soft bathroom towels. They have thought of every detail. There is a nice common area and a small... More
