Don't be deceived by the exterior as you arrive at Le Pourquois Plus. It is situated on a very ordinary street of houses, the exterior giving no clue on the gem that lies behind the facade! The house has been beautifully decorated by the owners and Dany gave us a very warm welcome. The accommodation is like a small self... More

We were very glad of the Tom Tom as I don't think we would have found Le Pourquoi so easily without it. At first site it is not very impressive, in a terraced street behind the station , but once inside the door it is a beautifully presented, comfortable home. Dani has a very good eye for décor and the... More

A nicer couple you could not hope to meet. Dani and Luc were ready to advise on sights to see and places to eat. Our room had plenty of space. There is a LeClerc on the main road very nearby useful for wine and cheap fuel.

We were looking for a place to stay on a visit to Lens Louvre and were so lucky to find Le Pourquoi Pas. Dany is the perfect hostess, available to answer questions and make your wonderful breakfast complete with homemade jam and cakes. As there were four of us we had the entire upstairs, two bedrooms, a sitting area and... More

We arrived in Arras to tour WW1 sites including Vimy Ridge.From the moment we arrived we were treated with kindness and generosity of spirit. The rooms are large, immaculate, and well equipped with towels, water, coffee and tea. There is a central room with a fridge and brochures about the area. The hosts provided a beautiful and tasty breakfast that... More

When we drove into the street I wondered if I had made a mistake as it was rather dreary. I was not therefore prepared for the wonderful surprise when the door opened and we entered a, tastefully decorated home that was ablaze with sweet smelling candles. Our room was enormous, as was the bathroom, and I particularly like the fact... More

Don’t write reviews often but this was a lovely way to finish our trip to Germany and France. We arrived early at 3.00pm but Dani (the owner) let us drop off our cases before returning a couple of hours later after visiting some of the nearby battlefields. Located in a back street but close to town, a 7 minute walk... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in June and were delighted by this spacious and well-appointed B&B. The previous description is accurate and in effect 'says it all' - but I would like to highlight everything from the beautifully furnished, clean and luxurious accommodation to the ample breakfast and warm welcome extended by the owners (who even...

We recently spent two nights at Le Pourquoi Pas. The Taupe room was very comfortable with a large ensuite bathroom. Breakfasts each day were delicious with fresh fruit, yoghurt and homemade preserves. This B and B is situated on a quiet street but within walking distance of the old city and many restaurants. The hosts obviously take a lot of... More

Based on trip advisor reviews we booked a night here on our way back to Calais from the Loire valley. Its not exaggerated- this place is lovely and 1 night wasn't enough. We fully intend to go back just to stay again and see Arras properly. I have never seen such an amazing breakfast spread even in a 4 star... More
