We arrived here at the end of a camping holiday with not much of an expectation as this was just a sleep over pending the ferry the following day. We however loved the hotel. We had two rooms and both were just as comfortable. Everything you could want and sheets and towels were spotlessly clean and white! The hotel is... More

We had a second floor double room overlooking the harbour with excellent views. The room was very clean and comfortable. Management and staff very friendly. We had the breakfast one morning, which was very good with nice fresh bread and a fresh orange juicer. We arrived as foot passengers on the Poole ferry, and it was very convenient. Everything in...

We found this hotel at the last minute during D-Day commemorations. The new owners are so very nice and helpful. Our room was average, but spotless! After speaking with the owner, we found out that she had recently purchased the hotel and is renovating it from the ground up. Our room had not been renovated yet. That's why I gave... More

We booked this hotel through Brittany Ferries and as we normally stay in chain hotels, or larger hotels I was a little bit worried about the size. I need not have worried. The reception area was welcoming and smart, with a very small bar in the corner. The owner was on reception when we booked in- a lovely, friendly man... More

The Hotel Ambassadeur is located on the harbor in Cherbourg, and offers excellent value for travelers not demanding luxury. Having just visited the D-Day landing sites in Normandy, which had been emotionally tiring for us, we found the Ambassadeur a clean and friendly place to unwind for two nights. The owners are Ludovic and Korina, a couple from Caen who... More
