Just spent a very pleasant weekend at the Hotel Ambassadeur. The rooms were clean, tidy and well appointed. I had room 307 which was on the corner with a good view of some of the harbour. The hotel staff were nice and friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble, they do speak English which may be useful for... More

All the reviews are true. We arrived after midday and received a warm welcome. We choose a third floor room overlooking the harbour. The room is small but with everything you need and very clean and modern. The bed is comfortable. The buffet has a good selection of choices for the start of the day. The location is excellent with... More

Well located in the old town facing the waterside. Convenient for restaurants. Rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast (€9) is excellent, with a wide range, help yourself buffet.

Simply a good hotel and value for money. Good location, good clean rooms, lovely views if you can get a room facing the harbour, pleasant staff, parking by the hotel (€1.50 for half a day), 5 minutes from the train station and 5 minutes from the ferry port. Definitely recommend staying here if in Cherbourg.

This hotel does what it says, room clean, nice bathroom. Can't really fault anything. Had the breakfast, it was great with a good choice of cereals, fruits, yoghurt and breads. Good location with car park directly behind. A bit difficult to find the entrance, I used Google maps and took coordinates from the car park centre but difficult one-way streets... More

Breakfast was generous with lots of choice and no pressure to leave - so coffee ad infinitum ! When ferry left without us we were able to check back in and even given original rooms. Central for a...
