"Excellent!! Dave and Anita are terrific hosts, they make you feel like old friends and look after you better than expected. Dave is a wealth of information on WW1 and keeps you on your toes by quizzing you every now and then. Should the opportunity arise, I will be back. Its a shame there are only 5 stars available as Beaumont Hamel View rates at least 7!! Thanks Dave and Anita for a terrific but short stay. "

"I thoroughly recommend a stay with Dave and Anita to anyone who has an interest in WW1. Dave's knowledge is absolutely amazing and he has a fantastic way of explaining everything. Not enough words to describe my visit, although very emotional, I am just so pleased I went and to stay with Dave and Anita was an added bonus.
Thank you both for everything. "

"A very highly recommended guest house and battlefield tour guide.
Set in the heart of the Somme, Beaumont Hamel View feeds the individuals thirst for knowledge about the Great War. This trip was to join our friend and follow in her grandfathers footsteps.
The hosts, Dave and Anita, greet all guests like friends and by the time you depart, you are friends.
This comfortable, clean and friendly guest house provides a solid base for battlefield hunters.
Dave's knowledge knows no limit when bringing the battlefield to life, with his mini museum of equipment etc found on the battlefield, preserved to show the future generations.
As Dave frequently said, he is speaking for the soldiers and telling the stories.
No day on the battlefield could start or end without the delicious and fulfilling meals prepared and served by Anita. Oh and not forgetting the selection of wine available to accompany the evening meal.
Thank you both for making this journey so emotional and complete.

"I can not recommend this place enough to people with a interest in military history, Dave went out of his way to cater to our requests for a New Zealand styled tour through the battlefields of the Somme, his knowledge rivals some of the best when it comes to the history of the Western Front.
The guest house was lovely and clean and made for a comfortable stay, the food prepared by his lovely wife Anita was first class and very filling after long days in the sun.
We should have spent more time in this beautiful part of France, New Zealand history will forever be tied to this area.
Thank you to Dave and Anita for making our pilgrimage to see where my Grandfather fought one of my most treasured memories.
Regards Graeme & phoebe Bishop"

"Our proposed visit to the battlefields was very important to the three of us as we had each lost a Great Uncle in France during World War 1. Dave's tour was meticulously planned and the information and background he provided of the battles which led to each of our ancestor's death gave us a much greater appreciation of what 'our boys' experienced in the lead up to and during their final moments.
None of us will ever forget the moment we stood where our loved one had passed away and read out aloud a poem in their's and their fallen comrades honour. It was impossible to not be overwhelmed with emotion whilst standing on the battlefields of of Bullecourt and Pozieres and at the cemetery at Allonville reflecting on what these men had endured.
Dave also provided each of us a booklet with a synopsis of our Uncles' Service which further enhanced our understanding of their time spent in the Army prior to their passing.It was extremely well researched and presented and a treasured memento to share with our families on our return back home to Australia.
The added bonus to our three day tour was the accommodation and yummy meals provided by Dave's lovely wife Anita who made us feel extremely welcome after our long days on the road.
We highly recommend the Battlefield Tour and Guest House Accommodation to anyone interested in Wartime history - you will not meet anyone more passionate and well researched than Dave - it was an experience we will never forget. "
