“Comfortable base for Somme visits”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

A very comfortable hotel with excellent food deserving of a higher Logis rating. We stayed for two nights but would use it as a first or last night stopover when travelling in France. Just 2 hours maximum from Calais it is great. the room we had was not new but in good order and the staff attentive. Rancourt is an ideal position for touring the Somme area battlefields, Cemeteries and Museums. We will be back!

Room Tip: It has a busy road so a room at the back may be better, though we did get some noise from the factor...

This strange looking remote hotel is very convenient for visiting the Somme. It is on a small road but it does get busy with lorries & deliveries to the bakery factory at the back. From the outside it does indeed look like an Indian restaurant. The ground floor appears to be very grand but the bedrooms are basic. We arrived early afternoon and had to wait 15 minutes for someone to appear to check us in. As MuggleB reported there was too much bedroom furniture! The four poster bed frame was way over the top with a smaller divan bed inside (why??) which left a fairly dangerous gap between the bed and the wooden frame. We too had to move the table and chairs to navigate round the bedroom.
We took the half board option so had a choice of two dishes for each course which were excellent. Only problem was that there is an extreme shortage of staff so just three people were running around serving in the bar, in the restaurant and at check in.
The next evening the same menu was presented. Well we didn't want to eat the same meal again so we pointed this out. After 10 mintes the frazzled waiter returned with one more option per course written on his order pad. Obviously no-one ever stays half board more than one night!!!! The a la carte had may choices so a far better option.
When we checked out, again a queue due to the undertaffing problem, they had charged us for the extra "off menu" choices plus half board! It took three people to sort that one out.
Overall though the hotel is OK for a one night stay. The food is good and if you don't mind waiting for bar/check in service then it is a reasonable choice if you are in the area and don't want to worry about finding car parks etc.

We stayed at this hotel as an overnight stop on our way to Verdun.

Our room was at the back and could have been spacious if it hadn't been crammed with furniture. The four-poster bed was fine but the two large dressing tables, table and chairs made it difficult to navigate. The bathroom was huge but almost empty - just a bath and sink; the toilet was in a separate room completely.

We ate in the restaurant where the food was very good, but the portions were huge. Our starters were the size of a substantial main course so although we had gone for a Prix Fixe Menu we were unable to manage a complete meal. The waiter was charming and helpful.

Breakfast in the morning was an average buffet.

We were looking for an overnight hotel on our way back to Calais from the Bescancon area and chose this little gem. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere but is easily accessible from the A26 travelling north and you don't have to go back on yourself to rejoin the A26.

On arrival we were upgraded from a single room to two adjoining rooms for our party of 3 - FOC. The other family we were travelling with had a room for 4.

Our rooms were on the second floor and to be honest, could do with updating. They were typically "french" but were clean and comfortable.

We ate in the Hotel restaurant and were very pleasantly suprised. The food was excellent and of a very high quality. There seemed to be quite a few locals eating at the restaurant which is always a good sign. Our only criticism of the restaurant (and it might be a French thing) was that the waitress wanted to know our desert choice before we had even eaten our starter or main. The waitress made us laugh as she spoke very little english and the only words she really knew were "I speak French. I not speak English." which she repeated quite a few times for our pleasure :)

Breakfast was buffet style and reasonable value.

Would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it for anyone looking for an overnight around the St-Quentin area/route back to Calais.

Came across this hotel on the road side and thank god we did. We wanted to stay in the town of Albert to see the museum but found the town a little ruff. Found this hotel and the cost was 68 euro for the room for two of us. The resteraunt was classy, the staff were so friendly and the food was great. Would stay here again when next in the area. The hotels in the towns near were ruff and not sharp or classy.

My wife and I have visited this charming hotel on many occasions over the last fifteen years and have never been disappointed. We are going again this autumn as part of special birthday treat for a member of the family and know that he is in for a real treat. Our stays have ranged from short breaks on our own to a longer one with a large group of discerning oenophiles. The food is consistently very good and of all the logis that we have visited in France, this one provides the best food as part of the demi-pension package.
This hotel is particularly convenient for those who are visiting the cemeteries and battlefields of the First World War with an excellent museum in Peronne, just six kilometres down the road. It is in a quiet, restful area, almost in the middle of nowhere and can also make a suitable stopover for those journeying further south. Yet, it is very close to the A1/E15 and only 15 mins from the nearest TGV.
Bedrooms are typically French - if you know what I mean - but that just adds to the atmosphere.
