Hotel de la Basilique
Very good traditional hotel
The Hotel de la Basilique is excellent. It doesn't have a glamorous reception area or 36" plasma TVs on the walls, which nobody sane would worry about. What it offers are the two things a traveller would normally want - a decent, clean, quiet room with a comfortable bed (with a normal sized TV, which I think picks up some UK channels) and good food. In fact the food is very, very good - better than you would expect even in a French hotel. When I was there the restaurant was full of local people.
It's in the middle of town, bang in front of the basilica with the famous golden Madonna on the spire. (Hence the name. Cf. Hotel de la Poste, Hotel de la Gare, etc.)
The people there were very helpful in arranging a taxi (actually a minibus) to drive me round the main Somme sites.
Unique Quality: Outstandingly good food, with a focus on local Picardy specialities
Directions: Right in the middle of town, facing the basilica
