Staff were attentive and spoke English which is good for those of us with a spattering of Franglaise. As it was a relatively new hotel it was modern and clean with all new fittings. Rooms good and bathroom modules a good idea. Enjoyed the food (dinner and Breakfast). Location good for battlefield touring (reason for visit). Good access. From the outside it looks fairly basic but inside all was to our liking. Would recommend this as a place to stay for anyone wanting a similar base for battlefield touring.
The hotel was clean and the staff were lovely and friendly. Location was easy to find (albeit quite a way out of town) but plenty of parking available and a restaurant and bar downstairs.
Hotel was excellent value and ideal location to explore WW1 Thiepval sites. Also close to Albert town with its museums.
Food in the cafe was cold and staff were under pressure. All of which was well below that expected at an hotel of that star rating
