The 3-star Hotel Royal Picardie is situated on the outskirts of the small town of Albert. The hotel has a large open car park adjacent to the hotel.
The Hotel is located just ten minutes walk from the centre of Albert and the famous Basilica (of leaning statue fame). We have been using the Royal Picardie for both conducted and self-drive tours for over seventeen years. The rooms are very slightly on the small side, but on the plus side all rooms are have a separate bathroom (bath and over-bath shower), separate WC and have tea and coffee facilities.
The new owners of the hotel are updating many of the rooms in a more contemporary but welcoming style, with some having lovely walk-in showers. Please also note that some twin-bed rooms may comprise a double and a slightly narrower (but full length) single bed. These rooms are also offered for triple occupancy.
Please note. The hotel Royal Picardie’s restaurant and bar can sometimes be closed for lunch and dinner, or closed early without warning, especially in the quieter months. This issue does not affect the very good breakfast which is always served in the hotels restaurant. This said, the owners do from time to time endeavour to provide light meals/snacks and other alternatives. There are also a limited number of other dining options to be found in the centre of Albert which we will list in the advice which accompanies your guide material.
