Just returned from two nights stay at the Hotel de la Gare, Achiet le Grande. It is situated opposite Achiet Station.

Very clean and basic accomodation. If anyone wants further info and contact details, please let me know.

please note.. toilet is on the landing not en-suite.

It was good for a group of five blokes.

Five blokes in the toilet, eh? How many did you manage to fit in the bedroom then, Terry?

Technical point about the toilet.

Whether it can cope with everyone depends how long the cistern takes to refill. Some continental cisterns/systems can take an age.

I stayed in an apartment in Alsace this autumn with my wife. The apartment when full could cater for 7 adults, 3 children and 1 plus babies.

There was a single toilet in the apartment with the cistern taking 4 minutes to refill properly.

Recipe for chaos!

OH OH OH

Regarding the toilet. When we arrived at the Hotel on the Friday morning and shown the rooms. We all had trouble working out how to flush the toilet. It was a square box contraption on the wall with a "one arm bandit" type of handle which we tried pulling, pushing, pressing. Any way after spending the rest of the day visiting various areas of the Somme we returned to the hotel around 7pm in the evening and guess what? the toilet flushing unit had been replaced whilst we were out and replaced with a good old British type of unit with press button flush.

Very impressed we were.

Continental Breakfast, three course Evening meal including a carafe of wine each cost us 35 Euros each per day. Not too bad.

Terry
