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.
