Not super budget but I wasn't expecting much at €45 per night, but I got a decent-sized room with double bed and table and chair (old and simple furnishings, and the bed was sagging in the middle) and a very small but decent bathroom (good water pressure and shower head, however, the towel was small and thin). I was on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before returning to Ireland.This hotel was very conveniently located. It is an old hotel but well maintained and for the exceptionally cheap price we could not have chosen better. We had a room at the front of the hotel but the traffic noise didn't bother us. I would stay here again

A very homely hotel which represents very good value for money. It is well situated and the rooms are clean. The owners were always prepared to help any request from where to go and where to eat. My children loved this short break mainly because they felt comfortable in the hotel

This hotel is excellent value for money.It is very old (quaint) but exceptionally clean. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful despite our appalling lack of French. I misunderstood the booking as I thought breakfast was included. I was a little surprised at the cost as I felt 6.5 euros was a little steep! However the guy brought cereals and... More

Right across the road from the train station so very convenient. I arrived late without a booking but staff were still accommodating. Room clean and quiet. Breakfast good. Friendly staff who were very helpful and kind despite my lack of French. They also let me leave my luggage at the hotel while I explored the city.

Nice hotel friendly staff. Our room had two double beds and a single, with a brand new shower room. Clean and well presented, recently redecorated in that unassuming "shabby chic" style beloved of the family run French hotel. Situated near the newly built aluminium hypermarket, which contains a very poor Carrefour supermarket. You will be better off going to the... More

Really conveniently located for both rail and bus stations and a few minutes walk from both town centre and hypermarket. Comfortable rooms and modest but satisfying breakfasts. A family hotel with warm welcome and no language difficulties. Happy to stay there again. Reasonably priced and a good pied-a-terre for exploring Cherbourg and the Cotentin (which are indeed areas well worth... More

I liked this hotel very much. My room was compact and simply furnished but the bed was a double and very comfortable. The room was beautifully decorated and carpeted. Everything in the room and the en-suite shower-room was spotlessly clean and everything worked perfectly. The owners are a charming and helpful couple. As an aside, you don't need to walk... More

I had a perfectly reasonable room on the 2nd Floor with a view of the station and a massive new Carrefour. Bed was comfortable and bathroom had a newish shower cubicle. Breakfast was typical, traditional French - bread and croissant in a basket, butter and jam and a jug of black coffee that smelled exactly the same as I remember... More
