Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NosmoKing Pleasant stay
In spite of booking a non smoking room we were allocated a smoking room.
When we reported this to staff we were instantly relocated
To a non smoking room.
All staff were very good and spoke good English.
Central location was excellent for sight seeing in tHe town itself.
The snacks served in the bar were excellent, as were the beverages.
Breakfast good, especially after we discovered how the egg boiler worked.

Great location for a stopover when traveling through France. Nice town. Nice welcome on arrival. Only problem was door key would not work and I had to return to reception 3 times and it still did not work. Not great as I arrived at 11pm after a 11 hour drive. Other than that a good place to stay. Very nice staff

Excellent, helpful staff, particularly the young lady with blonde curly hair, who's name I can't remember. Perfect location for the purpose of out trip, which was a WW1 battlefields tour. Safe parking for our motorcycles was an added bonus. First class all round, well done Holiday Inn!!

Very humble hotel, but adequate for value. Building exterior not kept up, litter, weeds etc. Desperately needs interior painting, new carpeting, better lighting. Lobby bar ok for a drink and sports on TV, but the food there more like airplane food, breakfast adequate but very basic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos88 Holiday Inn Arras France
Excellent Hotel Rooms tidy and practical....Very friendly staff and knowlegeable of the Region ,,Very informative as we had to go to a nearby town for the Wedding we attended..
Breakfast was excellent with a variety of drinks, fruits cereals etc
Big plus as the hotel was within walking distance of the station.
Only downside was a littlte noise from the trains which was not enough to disrupt sleep also the ventilation broke down midway through our stay, this was offset as we were not charged the local tax when we checked out. Thank you to the duty manager for allowing my son and wife stay in the rest area as our son had to finish off some homework , this was very kind of her..In short would we come back and stay again, Yes we will..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henox Excellent stopover hotel
We decided to pick this hotel due to its close location to Arras centre, car parking facilities & inclusive breakfast. We weren't disappointed. The staff were all very helpful & friendly. Particularly, the gentleman at reception when we arrived & the sole lady at breakfast who never stopped checking the breakfast area & replenishing stock, always with a big smile on her face. The room was modern, lovely & clean. The up & down lighting lamp was a good source of fun for a few minutes too. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Arras.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick1999 Holiday Inn Express Arras
Good comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Well situated with a variety of restaurants within walking distance (including ones that are suitable for a young family). Being an hour from Calais makes it ideal for us on our way down to and home from holidays in central & southern France. Would stay there again. Would suggest that the signing for the parking is improved, as this was tricky to find even though it is under the hotel that was easy to find.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Professional Group hotels vs. Small hotels
I think that the Group hotels (for example Holiday Inn Express) have to provide a quality product that is regularly reviewed and monitored or they fail.
Holiday Inn Arras is not 5 star but it's clean the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. The front desk staff are pleasant and knowledgeable and they all speak excellent English.
This conflicts with some small "luxury" properties which are twice or 3 times the price and rarely offer what is promised many of them failing to see over the garden wall at what is really happening in the leisure industry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lavender14 Great place for stop off on long journey.
Great place to stop off on long journey. Staff very nice. Breakfast choice very good including freshly squeezed orange juice and do-it-yourself boiled eggs. Great for children. Lovely bathroom. Hotel located in central Arras next to bus and train stations. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Arras is an interesting town with lots to see.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stoksey Holiday inn Arras
We thought the hotel was easy to find with good parking facilities, the reception area is very modern clean and the breakfast area was fresh and a good variety of choice. The room was a little shabby as was the corridors leading to it the car park lift was as scary as the eurodisneys tower of terror the noises and vibrations were nerving. The hardest part we found was finding somewhere to eat, there were a few restaurants local but none of any real standard.
Overall if your looking for somewhere to rest your head with a good breakfast and friendly reception this is the one for you, if however your looking for somewhere comfortable to stay with good local restaurants this is not the place for you so look elsewhere... We'd score this hotel as a 4/10 a little dissapointing as per the above reasons....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DAzurTrader Good location.
We wanted a hotel with car parking, near the city centre and not too expensive. This is what we got.
The car park is part of a public underground car park with direct access to the hotel. The location is excellent, clod=se to the city centre and a nice walk to restaurants.
The room was disappointing with an uncomfortable bed and a door in the bathroom which managed to trap my wife's finger (door's fault not hers).
The buffet breakfast was not as good as others (non H-Inn) on this trip. Poor fruit selection, stale croissant and machine style coffee.
The front desk staff were very helpful, but overall this H-Inn Express is not up the overall standard of the chain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by orlov1 One of the best.
We have stayed in many "Holiday Inn" hotels over the years, and this is one of the best. Being an Express we were not expecting great things, but how wrong. Polite staff,clean and well maintained room,easy parking, sensible price, great location, free wi-fi and breakfast. What more could you ask.
Only used as a stop-over this time, but will certainly return for a longer stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by onemanand2dogs this place is always great
We stay here a few times a year, just an hour south of calais so its ideal stopover if you are driving to Spain
Staff are always friendly and accommodating, the location is right next to the station so easy to find.
there are very many restaurants within 10 mins walk and the town itself is charming
dont tell too many people about this place please!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ged2804 Great value for money and brilliant service!
I've stayed here before, but forgot just how huge the bedrooms are! Well appointed and internet friendly. The staff were simply excellent and so helpful even when the water was off city-wide! They arranged a meal in a local restaurant and were still working in the bar til quite late offering service with a smile. The location is excellent - right next to the railway station and only a short walk to the centre of Arras. There is free on-road parking outside until 9.00am too! Brilliant stay - coming back in June!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GIPJ Stop over to Euro Disney
In the past we have stopped over in Kent but decided on this trip to sample a night in Arras which would enable us to get to Euro Disney earlier the following day.
The hotel was as expected, clean and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and myself, wife and 10 year old daughter had a thoroughly enjoyable night visiting Arras.
The town was all dressed up for Christmas with it's Christmas Market and we enjoyed the local hospitality.
The breakfast was enjoyed by all before we embarked on the 1 hr 30 min trip to Euro Disney.
The only downside was the lack of an evening meal in the hotel although as we wanted to sample the real France we were not put off staying at this hotel again.
If we go to Euro Disney again I'm afraid Kent will have lost our custom to Arras.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sofe Great hospitality and everything you need
Travelling with three young children can be a bit trying but we had a great experience;
- very helpful english speaker when we made an initial telephone enquiry directly to the hotel
- very helpful and welcoming staff on arrival
- the room was large, clean and had everything we needed
- staff were very helpful when the tired toddlers needed to eat
I would thoroughly recommend and we have no negative feedback
