We did live in this hotel for 3 nights and we got perfect sleep. The bed was very comfortable. Same is true for the shower. Breakfest was perfect for sporty days with kitesurfing an cycling. The hotel is very calm but it is just 5-minutes walk to the center.

Nice quite hotel on Rue du Val de Saire, 10 minutes walk to the centre. Run by a lovely couple. Lovely breakfast with homemade honey yogurt, delicious. Free wifi and satelite tv. It is a great place to stay for the annual Vide Grenier which is held just outside the door on the first Sunday in September each year. Would... More

Beautiful room decor, extremely dog friendly (look for the patch of grass across the street and ask for door code for late night sorties). Excellent English and the owners went above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay in Cherbourg a very pleasant experience after a bad start. Missed the Ferry to Rosslare because no taxi would... More

Starting our cycle tour from Portsmouth the Hotel Chimene is very convenient when arriving at Cherbourg. The lock up garage about 50m down the road provided secure storage for our bikes. The new owners are very friendly and speak good English. The rooms were spotless clean and the breakfast was very good, with home made yogurts and jams on offer.... More

Very friendly staff, located 800m from city centre and about the same from the port, clean and tidy room with perfect service! Not very quiet (I had a room next to the stairs and the next door neighbor woke me up) but really a great value for the money.

This hotel and the owners are by far the best i ever experienced in France. My partner and I arrived following an awful Ferry crossing at the start of June, and they couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast was lovely and I especially liked the homemade yogurt, and jam. Simply brilliant. I will most certainly be returning

This charming hotel has everything we needed to begin our week in Normandy: easy access by foot from the ferry dock, a warm welcome from owners Ludivine and Jean-Louis, and positive feedback on our speaking French. Above and beyond the clean and comfortable room was a magnificent breakfast and help making reservations at our next hotel. There were many places... More

I stayed 3 nights in the Chimene. I did not expect much but I have to say it was one of the best hotel stays I have ever experienced. Easy hotel with very clean rooms and a nice ambience with attention to the details. The host is extraordinary friendly and helpful. Gives you the feeling you are part of the... More
