We have struggled to find good accommodation directly in the battlefield area and as we were visiting with my partners parents we didn't want to risk the accommodation. We have eaten at hotel de la Basilique on a number of occasions but never stayed. The rooms are perfect for staying on or near to the battlefield sites with the main... More

This is an ideal base for exploring the Somme and Ancre Valley battlefields. You can park in the street outside. The hotel is a bit basic but is well maintained and comfortable. The restaurant is well supported by the locals, always a good sign.

Really nice clean hotel in the centre of Albert. Close to quite a few war memorial sites and facilities in the town. The food was superb for our evening meal. A good choice of wines and near by bars. The breakfast was a good continental breakfast with choice of cold meats and cereal. To recommend this hotel I would stay... More

As part of our summer holiday in France, we were spending a few days in the Somme region, exploring where our relatives had fought 99 years ago. Albert was an perfect place to base ourselves and the Hotel de la Basilique ideally situated in Albert. That and the other reviews on TA were why we chose this hotel. We drove... More

We ate here at lunchtime on a weekday for a business meeting and had a lovely meal. Staff friendly and the food was very good with very reasonable priced. Best to book as locals use it quite a bit which has to be a good sign. Tables could be a bit bigger but apart from that would definitely go again

We enjoyed a three night stay, our accommodation was a large room on the first floor overlooking the Basillica. Tea and coffee provided, excellent shower and English plug point in the bathroom! TV channels are limited. Bed was very comfortable and although no air conditioning we didn't feel hot. The breakfast is good value. The meals in the restaurant are... More

This was my second trip to Albert but my first staying at the Hotel de la Basilique. It is in a superb location adjacent to the Square and facing the Basilica. Whilst there is no hotel car park, there are plenty of free spaces in the immediate locality and parking was never a problem. I had a lovely room at... More

What this family-run (2nd generation) establishment sets out to do, it does consistently well. Room was nicely decorated, clean, bright and airy. Restaurant was excellent, a lot of choice and lovely food. Breakfast is a good range with meat, cheese, fruit etc. Staff consistently helpful and friendly. Location great, opposite the basilica but no town centre noise at all. If... More
