This was just barely an average hotel. The best was the location, very close to the center of town and the water. The parking that we had, Napoleon, was very good. A three minute walk and covered and secured, we never had a problem there. The shower flooded while we were there because it wouldn't drain and it wasn't sealed... More

Simple but reasonably comfortable accommodation. Friendly manager welcomed us without ceremony. The rug in the room was decidedly damp, for some unknown reason... No parking and the car park we were sent to by the manager was full.

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.
