Whilst booking two amazing days on the Somme battlefields with Western Front Tours (not currently listed on TripAdvisor, but highly recommended), the director suggested we stay at La Corne d'Or, as Arras was a very convenient centre in which to base ourselves. We are so glad we took his advice, as this hotel made an amazing and soulsearching journey all the more memorable.
The house itself has a wonderful feel to it, a real sense of the historic and the romantic. We were made to feel immediately at home by our hosts, who also make a great cooked breakfast with smoked bacon, and a French tea that we have since searched the world for (it was that good!) The rooms are, well, roomy, and retain an authentic feel, while we appreciated the contrastingly modern bathrooms which were light and clean. Corne d'Or only serves breakfast, but is located such that all of Arras' great restaurants and cafes are within a 5 minute walk.
Sometimes it's the little things that make a visit memorable. At La Corne d'Or it was having a cup of tea in the sitting room and looking through the picture books, and coming 'home' after dinner to a cozy night's sleep in a truly authentic French home.
If you are traversing the battlefields of the Somme or taking in a bit of French countryside, round out your journey by staying at La Corne d'Or in Arras...you won't regret it.
