We often travel in France and look for somewhere out of town with easy and safe parking. We wanted a change from the formulaic chain hotels so booked at the nearby Manoir de Gavrelle. The Manoir had double booked, so sent us to the Aquarium. It is not easy to find but on arrival we received a friendly welcome and...

Do not expect anything special. No english speaker at reception, so no information about how to get in if you come after 10:30PM. Bed a bit broken. Poor breackfast (for 10€...). And it is really in the middle of nowhere. Everything reachable only by car after minimum 20 min drive to see other people.

Located next to highway. Part of the rooms directly to the street which makes it look more like a motel than a 3 star hotel. Aquarium & fish topic is presented in a non-pleasant way (sad goldfish glass at reception, living lobsters in the middle of the restaurant) and pretty shabby interieur. Outside a field which is hopefully the reson...

Nice, clean and very quiet hotel. Free parking, and relatively cheap. However, it is in the middle of nowhere, so take something to do. Was fine for me visiting on business and working all day in Bethune and Arras, but I wouldn't recommend for a family or a couple looking for amenities within walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel recently and while it was nice and clean and perfectly adequate for what we needed I was very confused and upset to see goldfish in small bowls being used as bar/table decorations.

Recently stayed a few days in this hotel to visit nearby WW I battlefields. Rooms are simpel but clean with good beds and shower. The restaurant has good menu for a reasonable price and a varied choice for an excellent breakfast (buffet). Guests are able to park in front of the room under a shed so loading and unloading your...

We went to the Main Square Festival in Arras, and we were looking for a place to stay near the highway for our next day's drive. This place was in a good location (though a little weird to get to from the roads) but we were able to find it just fine in the middle of the night. The rooms...

The location described as quiet is actually next to a major road and an inter city rail line. With no air conditioning or fans in August the windows had to be opened.Deafening! Also we booked on the information that this hotel had a onsite restaurant but it was not open in the peak holiday season and never on sunday evenings,...

Stayed at L'Aquarium only as hotels in Arras were all full, with a major event going on. It was a very mixed experience. The hotel is quite large, with a bar, restaurant, function rooms etc. It has an immense car park and generally gives an air of being a business hotel. When we stayed there was barely a soul there,...
