We stayed here for 3 nights on a short break organised by Brittany Ferries. It couldn't have been better. It was a lovely scenic drive along the coast from Cherbourg to St Vaast which is a pretty fishing village. The hotel was within walking distance of the harbour & restaurants. We were warmly greeted by the jovial hotelier who provided... More

The hotel la granitiere is housed in an elegant french townhouse about 5 minutes walk from the pretty harbour. The owner was welcoming and friendly, and offered useful advice on restaurants - even providing a map with the locations marked. We had a junior suite on the top floor which was expensive but spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was fine -... More

4 of us flew into Cherbourg airfield, took a taxi to St Vaast and stayed at La Granitiere. We were delighted by the warm and friendly welcome from John Paul and enjoyed comfortable spacious clean rooms and an excellent value buffet breakfast. We'll go again. Dinner at the Fuschias just down the road was also excellent.

Took our Grandson (16yrs) and wanted him to experience a real French hotel not a corporate could be anywhere hotel and the La Granitiere was perfect. A short walk to the harbour & shops. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. We only found one restaurant which opened beyond 7pm but fortunately the food and atmosphere was excellent.

This is a really wonderful hotel; we booked through Brittany Ferries, the first time following a 10 stay in a give because it was a village we wanted to visit; the second time because we knew it was good. The proprietor is excellent, knowledgeable and if you allow it fun. He was excellent in helping me speak french and when... More

We booked this hotel through Brittany Ferries as our base for a short cycling break. Arriving worn out after a hilly ride from Cherbourg on a Sunday afternoon we were shown to our room which was a twin. Without asking we were offered a comfortable double room the following morning. The breakfasts were excellent, the service excellent and the proprietor... More

We received a warm, friendly welcome on arrival at the hotel and lots of help and suggestions for restaurants. The room was spacious and comfortable. It was very close to the sea front and town centre.

Have stayed at La Granitière several times and it never disappoints. Great welcome and very helpful owner who advises on the excellent choice of restaurants in the port. High standard of cleanliness and decor - very typically French. Breakfast is a perfect start to the day. Can't ask for more!
