“Top marks for great receptionist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Stayed here with some friends for a single night while visiting WW1 memorials in the Somme area.

We picked this hotel because of their very flexible booking and cancellation policy. We had some uncertainty about our arrival date and departure dates. So it was great to know we could cancel our reservations up to the evening of the arrival day without penalty.

The hotel is located a bit away from the centre of Albert, very suitable for visitors with their own car but a bit of a walk or taxi ride for those who don’t.

The room was very standard IBIS with basic furnishings and pre-fabricated shower enclosure; simple but perfectly adequate if all you’re going to do is sleep there.

There was a nice bar and outdoor sitting area, and a good mix of international guests while we were there.

The buffet breakfast was fine and reasonable value.

Free WiFi in the hotel worked fine.

The best part of our stay here was the receptionist, Justine. She spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable, and if she wasn’t able to answer something immediately she would quickly research the answer on her own initiative. When we asked about directions, in the blink of an eye she had printed of the relevant section of a Google map. When we asked about cost of taxis to visit the sights, she also checked out the option of car hire. And all the time she was so cheerful, patient and helpful. Well done, Justine.

I would definitely consider staying here if I was in Albert again.

Comfortable, convenient and with very helpful staff. We enjoyed the cuisine, too! We would happily stay there again if we travelled in the Albert area. I thought the prices reasonable and my wife and I were very satisfied with our stay there.

This is a budget hotel but it's a cut above others budget hotels I have stayed in.
The rooms were clean and well equipped but what sets this one apart is the staff, who were very friendly and helpful.

Would I stay here again - definitely

Friendly staff, good clean rooms and a decent location make this an ideal stopover for the Somme battlefields.

There is a restaurant onsite that does decent enough bistro food to save you going into town, given there are only a couple of restaurants anyway. Albert is quaint but quiet with nothing much going on and virtually nowhere useful open such as a food supermarket after 7.30pm.

We were saved from the ultimate blandness of the nearby McDonalds breakfast (didn't want to pay £9 for ibis breakfast) by it being closed for refurbishment and we headed into Albert for a sublime breakfast at a patisserie. They could shut McD's for good and I wouldn't lose a minute of sleep.

Anyway to cap off a decent stay, WiFi is included for free.
