This hotel, built by the British in the late 1920s and carrying George V’s cipher on the walls, is situated along with other hotels, near the railway station in Arras and a close walk from the old squares and restaurants of the town. Surprisingly and despite devastation inflicted by the battles of two world wars, there is a lot to see and do in the town. Although used a stopping point on the way home – Calais is around an hours’ drive from it – we judged Arras worthy of a separate weekend of exploration in the near future.
Although offering a relatively small number of rooms, each is very large and comfortable, with a separate toilet and bathroom, stocked with a good selection of shower gels, shampoos, etc. The beds are large and very comfortable. Downstairs is a small dining room, which wasn’t used because we were there on a Sunday and a bar area, which also is used for breakfasts. Breakfast costs 9 Euros and consists of boiled eggs, breads, jams, cheese, ham, yoghurt, etc., and which were all fresh. Rooms are around 100 Euros a night. Parking appears to be either outside or in one of the nearby parking areas.
Overall, this is a good stopping place with a nice feel to it and perhaps also a base from which to explore Arras and the surrounding war memorials.
