“Charming, family-run hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

Excellent location in Albert. Our spacious double room had a great view overlooking la Basilique, with tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and excellent wi-fi reception. Run by very capable husband and wife team Sandy and Didier, with Didier serving as chef in the restaurant also. Sandy was most helpful on arrival, providing us with maps and information regarding the Somme battlefields and always willing to provide milk upon request for tea and coffee in the room. Good buffet breakfast with fruit salad, yoghurt, cereal, cheese, ham and breads. Albert is an excellent base for exploring the Somme region. It's a small quiet town and Hotel de la Basilique makes you feel at home.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but the restaurant is worthy of high praise.

Wonderful atmosphere. Superb food. And very good value.

Very comfortable hotel, good free parking on street at front, helpful staff, good restaurant for an evening meal, plentiful continental breakfast, well appointed but smallish rooms. Unfortunately no elevator and narrow stairs to negotiate with luggage. Great location for local touring around. Really worthwhile Somme Museum just over the road.

Stayed April 2011, traveled as a couple

Family run hotel in the centre of Albert that provides good clean rooms with coffee/tea making facilities and a restaurant that provides excellent food - booking a table was essential during our stay as the restaurant here is very popular. The set meals were very good value for money.

We had a lovely modern room with tea & coffee making facilities and a roomy bathroom.
Plenty of hot water, lovely view of the basilique. We dined at their restaurant - lovely food for a reasonable price. Generous buffet breakfast for a reasonable price also.
Friendly English speaking family hotel. Just opposite is one of the best Somme museums I have ever been in. Perfectly situated for easy access to the Thiepval memorial. Safe car parking in the street out the front with no problems. Has in room WIFI access.

Room Tip: Just request it
