Stayed for a night with a child. Very flexible staff allowed us to have late nice breakfast. Surrounded by many nice restaurants of all prices and close to the small trendy port. Took us 30 minutes to walk from the ferry terminal.

The Hotel Moderna in Cherbourg is conveniently located on a downtown street just around the corner from the harbor. It is in walking distance to several restaurants and stores. There was no designated parking area but we did find a spot almost right in front of the hotel, free until 9 a.m. Overall Cherbourg was not one of my favorite... More

The Hotel is located in the City Centre. Parking possible nearby. Our room was at the top (3rd Floor, no lift, narrow staircase.) The room was pretty big. Everything inside very old. Bath OK. Hat an awful night because our bed was a wreck. Service ok, the Chef a little grumpy.

We did not have high expectations of this 2 star hotel. The reception was friendly and welcoming. There are no lifts, and we were on the top floor, my husband recovering from a broken leg, tried to make fewer journeys up three flights of stairs. The room was a tight fit, with a double bed and two singles, but it... More

The chap at reception was friendly and talkative, but the room and bathroom were tiny. We had a family room, with a double and a single bed, and it was a real squeeze with three people in the same room. Breakfast was a standard continental croissant, bread and coffee.

Our family was bitten alive in our beds - either bed bugs or fleas. My 5 year old daughter had close to 50 bites on her. When we told the manager in the morning he was very dismissive and didn't seem to care, blaming it on another holiday makers suitcaes. This was the last night of our holiday before coming... More

Very convenient location once you've found your way around Cherbourg's one way system , if you're using the ferry pick up the town map after your outbound voyage . Very fresh pastries and bread for breakfast
