This is a very friendly small hotel located in central Cherbourg. The staff are extremely friendly and the rooms were spotless. We enjoyed a small breakfast in the hotel which was reasonably priced. I would happily recommend this hotel.

Up front: My husband and I did not stay in this hotel. We were stopping in Cherbourg on a cruise and we had walked around the town, then decided to walk back to the ship. But we went left instead of right, and even though the ship was in sight, we couldn't get to it without walking all the way... More

Clean, comfortable stay at the Renaissance. Only criticisms the hotel was closed upon arrival at 13.00 despite advising them of our time of arrival upon booking and there is no lift to the rooms. I would stay here again and I would recommend anyone looking for a hotel close to the seafront and centrally located without suffering from a noisy... More

When we visit Cherbourg we always stay at the Renaissance. It's a small hotel (12 rooms?) but very clean, comfortable and conveniently located. Olivier, the patron, makes you very welcome (in French or in English). The hotel is part of the Contact group which offers a free stay (up to a value) every 12th night that one stays in a... More

We'd stayed in this hotel before, in 2006' and chose it again because of its convenient location. The small bedroom was clean and bright, and had a good view of the harbour. The electric external shutters meant that we weren't woken up by the morning sunshine. We couldn't park very close to the hotel this time - perhaps because it... More

We stayed with children having arrived from the UK. The family room is poorly equipped for families, the curtains are see-through, there are no facilities. Be careful about the price as it is oddly expensive. We were charged for our 10month old daughters breakfast - they claimed we ordered a croissant and 1m baguette for her and also a jug... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Renaissance on a number of occasions, most recently in mid June 2006 and have always found it a really pleasant experience. The hotel is very conveniently situated near both the sea front and the town, staff are always friendly although we've rarely found anyone who speaks English. The rooms are all named after flowers...
