Came across to Cherbourg from Poole, UK, on the ferry and the Ambassadeur was within walking distance....the front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. We had a spacious corner room overlooking the marina with lots of light. This was one of those well designed rooms, clean and comfortable. Loads of restaurants nearby. Cherbourg is not a tourist hotspot but... More

Lovely hotel close to good restaurants and shops with public parking at the rear for a nominal fee. . Waterside view from the bedroom, although last time we stayed we were unfortunately given a rear bedroom without views. Friendly and helpful reception staff and I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cherbourg .... .

Went on a short weekend break to Cherbourg, visiting Bayeux for the day, with Brittany Ferries. We stayed at the Ambassadeur for 2 nights, and, apart from the roadworks taking place outside which couldn't be helped and which never really bothered us because there was no work on the weekend when we arrived, our stay here was a good one....

I have stayed here many times and have to applaud the new owners for the many changes made in the short time they have been there. The location is perfect, near the town and the ferry. It is spotlessly clean and the reception area is now very welcoming and pleasant. The only negatives would be that the breakfast is a... More

Excellent location, extremely helpful staff. Good quality clean room. DO NOT eat at the Mistral restaurant, next door. That's really all that I have to say about Hotel Ambassadeur except that coming so soon after our disastrous experience at The Shah of Persia in Poole it was a very welcome change of attitude and service.
