Hotel D'Angleterre
Ranked #12 of 14 Hotels in Arras
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We thought this was a very French hotel and much more interesting than one in an international chain. We upgraded from the standard room and our room was large with an enormous bed. One odd feature was the bathroom. The bathroom itself was lovely and big with an excellent shower and bath. The loo was separate and the toilet was up a flight of 7 stairs (in the "loo room" itself)! It was so quirky we took a photo. Everything seemed very clean. The breakfast was French: hams, cheeses, yogurts, fruit, pastries etc which we found very good. It did not matter that it was not "full English" style - this was France. The staff were lovely and friendly. Although it was in the centre of town near the railway station it was not noisy. It was very convenient for the excellent restaurants in the town. The hotel provides a card for parking in an underground carpark nearby, with a cost per day.

Room Tip: Don't have room 19 if you don't want stairs to the loo

We had booked this hotel then my wife saw some poor ratings which put us off. As it had been recommended by friends we chose to ignore them and we were right to. Great central location, no noise despite being close to station, comfortable and very friendly staff.

Room Tip: We had a family room on the fourth floor facing the square and it was great

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.
