We stayed for one night as part of a WW1 battlefields trip. Some things are good - great central location, easy parking, spotlessly clean, friendly staff and we enjoyed dinner in the restaurant. It appeared popular with local people, which usually is a good sign. On the other hand the decor is dated, steep stairs so not for the less... More

Perfect position for a visit to the Somme Battlefields.the hotel does not take advantage of this,and has high standards in the Hotel and restaurant. No lift,so be aware if you have mobility issues,however would not hesitate to return

12 of us stayed here for 3 nights on a cycling tour of the WW1 sights. Clean rooms, good food and the most central location possible. Sandy and Didier made us very welcome. The decor is plain and simple so if you're looking for "rustic" then try elsewhere. For us it was perfect.

This is an excellent regional restaurant that also has 10 rooms. We had one of the largest. It had a big modern bathroom. The room was not large, but perfectly nice and the staff were most cordial. If you want a five-star every-convenience hotel, this isn't for you. But we thought it was delightful, great food, and the Albert Somme... More

We were a little disappointed with the Hotel de la Basilique particularly given the rave reviews on TA. It's quite drab despite receiving a bit of a (budget) makeover. However, it does meet the basic needs of those visiting the WW1 battlefields. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, a good working shower and the location is great for the... More

We stayed at the Hotel de la Basilique on the first and last nights of our recent trip to France. The staff are welcoming and helpful and the hotel is clean and quiet. My only criticism is that the dining room is far too crowded; on our return visit we were literally shoved into a corner where an extremely rude... More

The hotel is in a perfect situation; walking distance from the station and on the attractive square and opposite the beautiful basilica. We had room 9 on the second floor and it was worth trudging up with our bags because the view from the double set of large windows, overlooking the square, was so delightful. (They offered to help with... More

We were staying with elderly relatives, in order to look at the 1st world war memorials. The rooms could have been bigger, but they were simply furnished and comfortable, the wifi reliable and fast, the bathroom was fine clean if a little dated, the shower was very slippery. We had a very pleasant stay, and would certainly stay again.

We booked this hotel on the strength of previous reviews in Tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. Very attentive and friendly staff, good food in the restaurant in the evenings, and a good continental breakfast.

I stayed here during a trip to the WW1 battlefields. Staff were very lovely and accommodating. Rooms although small were boutique, spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable. Although doesn't seem much to look out as you come into reception/cafe behind lies more depth. In the small restaurant to the rear of the ground floor was very pleasant and I enjoyed... More
