"Very comfortable room"
The hotel is very comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, well signposted and easy to find on the outskirts of town. Whilst the rooms are a bit dated they are clean and comfortable with everything you need but the surprise was the restaurant which was excellent. Food was amazing, varied and of a very high standard. The breakfast was the best we had in France and we stayed in very expensive hotels […] in Paris, chateaus and boutique hotels of 4 and 5 stars. The staff here were helpful and friendly and spoke excellent english. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the Somme. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fine And Hunky Dory"
A warm welcome with very helpful staff. Room compact but very clean and provided everything we needed. The restaurant was closed on the night we were there but the menu looked decent enough. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Always use this hotel when visiting War Graves in the Somme area. A very good location to Amiens. Lovely staff very friendly and aways attentive. Nice clean rooms and good facilities throughout. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very friendly service"
Excellent hotel with very attentive staff. Restaurant was very good and the breakfast offered a wide choice. Bedroom very nice. The only adverse comment would be that the bed was a standard double and there was plenty of room for a wider one!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good food Breakfast expensive and avoided. Dreadful WIfi with awful adverts. Never managed to send an email.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel with free Wi-Fi. Don't stay in the heat of the summer as no air con. Rooms - all that you want, but a little dated. Good bar with plenty of seating. Restaurant good, but starters microwaved - this didn't really detract from them. Main courses good. Breakfast very good. Staff extremely pleasant and very accommodating - flask of coffee […] provided for our daily trips to the graves. An absolutely wonderful base for "The Somme". Use Major and Mrs Holt's book for your trips. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a one night stopover. We received a warm welcome and were given all the information we needed. The rooms were very comfortable and the hotel showed signs of recent refurbishment. The lounge and bar were very comfortable and service was good. Dinner was very good though the staff were stretched in terms of numbers. Breakfast was also very good. […] It is not walking distance of the town centre. I would certainly use it again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very pleasant three night stay"
Found it to be a excellent Hotel for our short stay to visit local WW1, Memorials, Museums and other local interests. All the staff were very helpful and courteous many spoke English which was helpful as our French is limited.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overpiced for a reasonably comfortable room."
Stayed here in June 2013. Ok if you are just passing through. Staff were helpful and efficient. Hotel is clean and tidy. Room was small but clean. Large car park. Didn't eat at the restaurant - town is a pleasant 1km stroll where there are a few places to eat. Breakfast was expensive at 12 Euros a head. Overall I felt the hotel was overpriced (£80 per […] night) for what was on offer and I wouldn't stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A lovely find, perfect base for WW1 history"
A really pleasant surprise. The hotel is in a great location, out of town but in easy walking distance (approx 0.5 miles) of the centre. We just had the basic room which was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for our two night stay. On the first night we ate in restaurant. We had two very good main courses and fortunately chose to share […] a starter (a proscuitto salad) which was massive and then a cheese board which was equally large. Before dinner we had a couple of drinks, as the sun was out we took these outside. We were shortly followed by the ever attentive staff who brought us out a small table and some olives and tapanade. Would definately recommend this hotel, in fact we are going back later this year Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff and good for a one night stay"
Very friendly and helpful staff, seemed willing to please at all times. A bit quiet and only a few guests when we visited, but the hotel was good for a one night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"one night stop over"
this was a modern hotel and was nicely furnished and decorated. Pleasant, friendly and helpful staff, who spoke good English.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Hotel in Albert."
Excellent Hotel just on the outer edge of Albert.Always use this Hotel for visits to WW1 sites and tours of Amien and Arras. Would use this facility again with confidence and with pleasure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for short stay"
Room was OK , clean and comfortable, suitable for short stay. Had tea and coffee making facilities which was great. Not busy at all during our stay and restaurant was closed even though it was a Friday night. About a 15 minute walk to town, no places to eat close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"weird outside but a pleasant place to stay"
We stayed here on the way back from the alps. Albert is a good place to stop as it is only 2 hours from calais. The hotel was reasonably well signposted in Albert although a map would have helped. It is located on the outskirts of the town opposite some houses and next to some industrial buildings so not picturesque. There is a big car park but it […] is not secured. The outside of the hotel is weird. It looks like a low rise castle built by an incompetent Disney employee. Dont let that put you off! Inside it is comfortable and pleasant. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated although towels were a bit mean. Dull view of a big flat roof with trees beyond. Good tea making equipment in room. Nice enough bar and restsurant. Limited menu when we visited but food was well cooked and enjoyable. Breakfast at euro12 pp was expensive but worth it - the best continental breakfast i have ever had with lovely breads brioches cakes etc. Got a good discount (25%) on the rack rate booking through hotels com come although I had to pay when booking.

"Excellent Hotel in Picardie"
Have used this hotel several times and always leave pleased with our visit. Would recommend the Best Western Royal Picardie for the position in the Town and easy access to Amiens and Arras. Would visit again without any doubts.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for all."
Have used this hotel before. Always impressed by the standards which are very high. Friendly staff make the stay enjoyable and as we were visiting a family war grave the town of Albert is central to the Somme area. The breakfast provided is very good with a large selection of excellent quality food available without restriction. We will visit again […] and recommend this hotel highly.

"Great stay in Albert"
Excellent hotel, the staff are very very friendly & did everything to make the stay that much better. Nice walk into town (about 15mins).Rooms were very clean and well presented.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bit tired and dated."
The staff were great and the rooms comfortable and very clean, but the hotel is in need of a major refurb and the restaurant area is not appealing due to its large size and lack of atmosphere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy location to get to a good overnight stop."
The staff very helpful with and information, room clean, and service ws good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, Great people."
The room was small but very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately our room did not have a mini-fridge but we managed without one for three nights. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Deborah the new owner. She was an absolute sweetheart and couldn't do enough to help. We didn't eat in the restaurant only because we are not into the french cuisine much. […] The location was great as it served as a great base to visit many of the battlefields in the area including a day trip to Belgium. The staff were great, the hotel was very quiet and I would stay again if I ever travel there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A hotel near, but not in, Albert"
The hotel is nice enough, but it's about a kilometre away from the centre of Albert. It's barely in Albert at all (it's the last building: after that it's fields).Genuine Expedia guest review

"Etape au calme à proximité d'Amiens"
Une étape vraiment au calme sur le chemin de la Belgique... Une seule remarque (disons un point d'amélioration...), ce serait quand même bien que les restaurants en France proposent mieux que des fromages stérilisés aux voyageurs... Notre pays est si riche en fromages...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"QUICK AND SHORT VISIT TO THE SOMME - APRIL 2015"
05/02/15 WILLIAM A Nannerch, United Kingdom
Visited for a two night stay. Very friendly reception staff - English was spoken if needed. Delightful and helpful staff throughout the stay. Very willing to help. The breakfast was excellent (didn't have any other meal) with a very wide choice. The room was clean and well card for and the bed very comfortable. Checking out was quick and easy. Really pleasant place to stay. Will stay there again and would recommend the hotel to others wishing to tour the region.

We didn't really want to write this, but feel we need to as a warning to future guests. We stayed for 6 nights 17th - 22nd April 2015. The location is good for touring the Somme battlefields, room clean and comfortable, good choices at breakfast and good food in the restaurant. The staff appeared friendly and helpful, however, 400 euro's went missing from our room (in our luggage in the bottom of the wardrobe, no need for anyone to go in there) this completely ruined what had been a good holiday. So our advice to others 1. Don't leave anything valuable in your room. 2 put everything in the hotel safe. 3 choose another hotel there are plenty to choose from
"Conveint and comfortable"
04/22/15 dhyndi belfast
Stayed here for 3 nights whilst touring the Somme Battlefield sites - a convenient starting point. Rooms very clean and a good size, comfortable beds. About a 10-15min walk or 2 min drive to centre of Albert. Breakfast was typical continental (fruit, croissant, pan au chocolate etc). Plenty of parking spaces. Only down side was the tv in the room had no English channels on it, I know it's in France but usually you would have a BBC channel or 2 for a chain hotel. Also has free wifi. Would stay again

6 of us stayed overnight at this hotel on a recent trip to the war graves. The hotel is a perfect location just outside the busy town. We arrived at 7 pm and asked them to book us into the restaurant . The staff were so helpful. The room was ideal for a short stay, with everything in the room that was needed. We went down to dinner and can we say that the food was fabulous. The chef and team did a first class meal that you could not fault. They had a terrific choice of wines as well. The prices were very reasonable as well. At breakfast again it was excellent. Choice was very good and it was constantly being replenished. It was a lovely stay on a busy schedule. Would definitely recommend and will stay there again

A return trip to the Royal Picardie in Albert France. Centrally located to the Somme Battlefields, it makes an excellent location to visit the entire front. Rooms are comfortable and the food is outstanding - very nice breakfast. Dinner, while perhaps a bit pricey, was welcome after a long day and absolutely superb. The staff is most welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. Plenty of parking. Will definitely stay there again on future visits an do not hesitate to recommend it for visiting the Somme.
"Visit of the Somme battlefields"
03/22/15 llij_54 Bristol, United Kingdom
Hotel was very comfortable, decor was a bit quirky but the staff were so helpful and friendly. The restaurant menu was slightly limited but excellent food. Only downside was it was on the edge of the town but an excellent location for visiting the nearby battlefields and memorials. Would definately stay there again.
03/08/15 Tonyraymond Halstead, United Kingdom
A clean and friendly hotel situated on the outskirts of Albert. Excellent Rooms, Cusine and cleanleness. If touring the Somme Battlefields a good Hotel to stay at. When visiting this area please visit the Somme Museum in Albert Superb is the best way to describe it.
"Saved the day!"
01/11/15 YorkshirePair S Yorks
We stayed here for two nights on the 9th and 10th of December. The hotel is well appointed, clean and comfortable. Parking is easy. We didn't take dinner there prefering to explore local eateries. Breakfasts were excellent with an amazing choice, you could even boil your own eggs although I think the timer was a little eccentric. This was our first port of call at the start of a long trip through France and Spain so it was a shock to find that we had packed the wrong charger adapter for our tablet. Big problem for of course the only ones for sale were for French people going to the UK. A lovely lady at reception saved the day. She had a box of adapters left by long departed guests. Phew! We would like to say a big "Merci!" to " La Reine des prises multiples " Highly recommended!

I have now stayed here twice - once with a party of 5 and the last time with a party of 18. Bothe were trips to the Somme WW1 sites. I organised both trips. The hotel standard was excellent and the evening meal - 3 courses 33 euros was suberb. The hotel were excellent in helping make the arrangements and adapting to short notice changes. the packed lunch we purchased was very good. The age range of our party was 45-85 and all spoke highly of our stay and the facilities. Plenty of car parking space.
"Ideal hotel for Somme"
12/08/14 Peefor07 Buckinghamshire
We phoned the hotel whilst on our way and were told that there was no reception available after 3 p.m. and that we had to let ourselves into the hotel and get our key that was left on the desk. Slightly unnerving experience to go into a hotel that was in darkness and with no-one else around! However, the room was of a decent quality and was clean. There was a receptionist there the next morning who was very pleasant. Would stay there again but hopefully with more people around next time. Didn't have breakfast - quite pricey.
