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

I needed somewhere to stay on Saturday night as I was due to catch the ferry to Dublin on Sunday, so I looked for the nearest hotel and by chance came across this delightful little place. The street outside was full of parked cars, so I was offered a lock up garage, but my Mercedes Vito was just too long.... More

This hotel has reasonable facilities for the price (but no tea/coffee) and excellent breakfasts. The room was very clean and the owners very helpful and friendly. However, we did not sleep well, partly due to the lack of a sprung mattress (and also the stormy weather!). The room, and particularly the shower room were a bit cramped. We would rather... More

What is important to us, wifi that is fast and reliable, a good hot shower, a place to plug in my hair dryer and a clean comfortable room. All of the above was here at this very cute hotel. The couple who run the hotel were the highlight of our stay along with the homemade yogurt we had every morning.... More
