Very friendly, very charming. Not a luxury hotel by any means, but you aren't paying for luxury. The staff cannot be more helpful or any friendlier. My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on a quick weekend break to explore the City. The hotel is in an excellent location in the city centre near some excellent restaurants and... More

Central, clean, friendly and utterly charming! Definately good value for money if you're on a small to medium range budget. Extra credit for a spacious, well-kept bathroom with bath tub and exellent water pressure in the shower - not the easiest task in an old building. The couple running the hotel were both very friendly and very helpfull with guidance... More

We've just had three fabulous days in Cherbourg staying at the centrally located Hotel Napoleon. Our double room was spotlessly clean with fresh bed linen & towels every day..... Breakfast first class. This is an ideal base for anyone wishing to explore Cherbourg & the surrounding area. Recommended.....

Was disappointed arriving at the Napoleon, although cheap, one can soon see why. A steep staircase to the second floor makes it inaccessible for any but the fittest. Although in a prime location in the centre of Cherbourg the rooms are very basic. Free parking is close by and the staff are helpful.

A classic french town house from the outside in a perfect location. Inside, the family that run it are the main draw, what lovely people. The breakfasts were more than adequate and the help, advice showed that this young family take hospitality seriously. The rooms were last 'done' circa 1970 and show there age and lack of planning but who... More

The hotel is within a few minutes' drive of the ferry port and is in the old town, opposite the Marie (town hall). The hotel is run by a charming young couple who were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was small for a double as was the bathroom. The decor was in need of some refreshment, but it's important... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our arrival was met by a super personable owner who smiled all the way through the introductions. The hotel looks striking from the outside and can't be missed. It's well maintained inside and out. The flower boxes on the windows were in full bloom 8-) The facilities may be a little dated but the... More

Very helpful and friendly staff. Stayed here on arrival in France and because of our first stay booked it one week later before departing on ferry. Great location walking distance for bars restaurants shops. Plenty parking outside for minimal charges. Staff very friendly and helpful booked a taxi for us and looked after our luggage after we booked out. Rooms... More

Stayed for 4 nights for a short break in Cherbourg (travelled as a foot passengers on the ferry). Rooms small and basic but clean - there's no lift so 2nd and 3rd floors might be an issue for some. Owners very friendly and helpful, and a great location with several restaurants and a microbrewery bar within yards. We were on... More
