We stayed in this town centre hotel last week for two nights on our small tour of the North France/Belgium WW1 battlefields.The welcome was friendly and our first floor rooms were clean, spacious and well furnished, the beds comfortable and even though the weather was very hot the high ceilinged rooms were reasonably cool. Our window was equipped with a mosquito proof net so pests were not a nuisance.
Our room was at the rear of the hotel and was surprisingly quiet for a town centre, though our friends in a room at the front were treated to a very late night burst of Bob Marley from a (st)rolling reveller - at about 3am, and there are of course always those buzzy mopeds being driven as fast as possible by teenagers, but that's part of being in France. Better than the average British town centre at night by far.
Albert is a very nice little town, despite the best efforts of the warring nations a hundred years ago, and the hotel really is an ideal base to travel around the many sites of interest. In the evening the hotel restaurant is very good indeed and we ate there both nights. The service was good and we tried to sample as much of the wine selection as possible.
Breakfast was the usual self service continental type, with a coffee machine and pleasingly a kettle for us Brits to make a nice cup of tea.
