“A quirky comfortable hotel with a good feel to it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

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.

Have reviewed before and given higher rating however a few disappointments from my recent stay there....
- breakfast is very limited in choice and a disappointment
- room was very hot & difficult to adjust the temperature even though a wall thermostat is fitted.. to cool down the room had to open window & room is then noisy

This is still a good choice of hotel in Arras though a few areas need improving.
Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would also be good
Also limited power point in the room & difficult position for plugging in

Only stayed for 2 nights whilst on a WW1 Battlefield Tour. Tired & shabby decor. Light not working in room. Heating only functioned on maximum. Shower rail broken. All 3 problems reported to front desk who did nothing about it. Black mould in shower area.Very noisy position opposite railway station and cleaners driving beeping road sweepers starting at about 0630. Breakfast adequate but only just.

Understaffed and overworked.

Avoid and look for something which provides better value for money

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing onto the square (Avoid all the rooms in reality!)

My family and I recently stay at the Hotel D'Angleterre. We booked the enourmous family suite and enjoyed the abundant space it gave us. Fabulous. We didn't like finding beer cans hiding under the beds (and not really hiding actually). And the place was a bit tired. But the front desk was always helpful... the proximity to shops and restaurants great... the room spacious... it wasn't too noisy despite facing the train station... and the overall value solid. Definitely worth a good rating.

Room Tip: The family room is gigantic. A great option if you have a large crew.

We would not stay here again. Huge rooms but sense of faded prestige. Staff pleasant. Breakfast at best average. Very few people were staying here and we wouldn't stay here again. It was expensive for what it was. There must be better places to stay in Arras.

Nice looking hotel from the outside. Parking was organised for 8 euros in a public underground parking site, just down the road. Reception staff very polite, but you had to wait for them to turn up. We had asked for a nice double room and were given a huge family room with 4 beds! Small bathroom and tiny separate toilet. The whole room was very dated and full of flies. We ate in the restaurant and other than another couple we were the only ones. The dinning room was aso very dated. We were served by a polite barman, but my food had hairs in it and asked for it to be replaced. I was given new plate of food and then the barman disappeared outside for ages, leaving us on our own. The restaurant lacked atmosphere and at one point was playing Xmas music! Breakfast was good, but unfortunately I came away from the hotel with food poisoning! I don't understand how this Hotel is 4 star, do they award it to themselves?

This is a nice family run hotel, comfortable would describe it well, yes the staff are run ragged and the decor is a bit '80s but they are decent sized rooms and the restaurant is great- a young chef who wants to make a name for himself, I was really impressed.
