After arriving in Cherbourg with a night to spare before our gite rental we stayed at this hotel. The room was small, but very clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant, giving us tips for food and an umberella to keep us dry. There is plenty of free parking in the square outside the hotel; there are many restaurants... More

We spent one night at this hotel when we arrived in Cherbourg, what a great decision we made, very helpful and friendly couple run the hotel, even standing in a parking space to keep it whilst we got the car. We weren't going to have breakfast but then decided to go for it and what a great breakfast. The room... More

This is our second time here and it just gets better. Yes the bathrooms could do with an update and the rooms are not large but the location is perfect, the service is superb and the place just oozes character. A free car park just 100 meters away and short term parking outside. I bought some tea in the supermarket,... More

Took the ferry late afternoon from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and stayed the night at Hotel Napoleon. Friendly welcome by the owners, rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. Parking was difficult as the square opposite the hotel was full but the owners suggested that they can make a slot available. Lastly, our daughter made friends with their daughter and although...

We stayed at this hotel during a cycling holiday in Normandy last week (September 3rd 2014) . The owners looked after us (and our bikes) with care and generosity, offering a clean and well furnished en suite room for an extremely reasonable price. The breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend this hotel for those seeking budget priced accommodation.... More

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
