Poor menu variety, dish selected was unavailable, long wait to be served, staff where dismissive and they made us feel very uncomfortable 1. due to my wife's prosthetic leg, the server kicked my wife's prosthetic leg accidentally and went to appoligise however on looking down and seeing it was a prosthetic she stepped back and looked horrified she was then...

Hotel d, Propriétaire at Hotel de la Basilique, responded to this review

Dear Barry, we are surprised by your comment. My two waitresses and myself, We never make fun of customers. All guests are the same (disability or not). Our restaurant served all menus all days even during the commemorations... we are only three waitresses in the restaurant, there are no men. So, i'm sorry but i don't understand your comment ?...

Terrific location to visit many battlefields and historic areas of France. Very quaint town. Easily walkable and this hotel is right in the city center. Right across from the Somme museum. Decent sized rooms, very clean though very basic. Walls are a little thin but its a suitable place for a night or two. The restaurant in the hotel is... More

This is a restaurant I have used before but not for some years. If anything it is even better - the food and service is excellent and at lunchtime it was full of locals which is usually a good sign. The menu has a good choice - I had a steak which was first class.

We received a warm welcome by a good English speaking lady. The hotel has a good restuarant which was already fully booked but we could sit and eat outside. Good quality for reasnable price. Rooms are clean and ours had view on Basilique. Wifi works fine. You can park for free in neighbourhood. Somme16 museum is just across the street.... More

We stayed two nights in a room looking right out on the Basilica. Double windows made it quiet and thick curtains made it dark. All the amenities were available (tea, etc.) and the bed was super comfortable. The hosts were charming and kind. The restaurant downstairs is terrific, even for a vegetarian one of our party.

This was an impulsive choice based on nothing more than proximity and limited time available so had low expectations - particularly because of the plaque on the wall outside that stated that it was part of a two star hotel.The quality, presentation and taste of the food was very good and it is at times like this when you have...

This is really a restaurant with rooms. The reason I have been coming here for 20 years is a) the dining room - which is excellent b) location - smack in the middle of the Somme battlefield c) the pleasant welcome from Sandy and Didier. The 10 rooms are fine - clean and light. But they are modest. My clients,... More

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
