What makes a good hotel better? The staff! This was not our first choice for a stay in the area, but it had availability. First impressions were not encouraging, as the building has been modelled on someone's idea of a castle and its position next to a road and adjacent to an Industrial estate does not enhance its visual appeal....

We were travelling back from the south of France and had chosen the Royal Picardie as a convenient stopover before Calais and the long drive north. Now, of the 22 rooms in the hotel 17 were occupied, and all seventeen were English, and of this seventeen all but one were on a WW1 battlefield tour. Yep, we felt like Geman... More

We were VERY happy staying at this hotel - the staff were extra friendly and helpful, the location was very handy for exploring the WWI cemeteries and museums (car needed as they are far apart), and the hotel was quiet, clean, roomy and comfortable. We ate dinner one night at the hotel restaurant - a very good value meal -... More

Picked this hotel for its location. My wife and I had planned to tour the Somme battlefield sites and the Hotel Picardie is perfectly located to do that. You can tour all the battlefield sites very easily from here. The staff are very friendly, the food is excellent, the rooms while not very big are adequate for short stays. There... More

The hotel appears to be o. The edge of an industrial estate but don't let that put you off. The rooms are very clean and comfortable - especially the beds. Excellent selection for breakfast (extra €12) and very friendly staff all of whom speak good English if that is something you worry about. Ten minute walk into the town of... More

We stayed at this Hotel in Albert for two days to visit the Australian WW1 battlefields and graves. The hotel from the outside looks like a cheap Russian Castle however looks are deceiving. The rooms are small with separate toilet and bathroom (both separate rooms) however they are clean and seem to do though you would not want large suitcases.... More

A good place to stop over en route from Cote d'Azur to Britain or as a base camp for exploring the Somme battlefields. Nothing luxurious, rooms are smallish but clean, comfortable and functional,with coffee making facilities,restaurant is ok, and breakfast ample. Staff are charming and very helpful.All round very decent and pleasant place to stay and good value for money

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here, nice sizeable rooms, clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast and dinner at the hotel were tasty and had plenty of choice. Staff were friendly and helpful and we appreciated their ability to speak English. Would recommend anyone to stay here, found the area very peaceful and relaxing.

I don't understand a couple of negative descriptions of the exterior of this hotel, I thought the same as my grandson Connor, it was like a little castle in the middle of the somme. Anyway to my review, this hotel is 100% the perfect spot for touring this part of the Somme. From check in to check out the experience... More
