Absolutely great overnight stay after arriving on the ferry. 5 mins from the ferry port, easy to find, public car park behind, lovely room (we paid a little extra for a sea view - well worth it), tea & coffee making in the room (amazing for France!), hairdryer, good value (we didn't have breakfast there), free wifi, lift - can't...

The location of the hotel is perfect for the shops and restaurants of Cherbourg and also the ferry terminal (20 minute brisk walk) and railway station (5-10 minutes). The hotel is smartly presented and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are first class too. A lovely hotel with great value for money.

First impressions really matter and we were very impressed with the reception we received especially as we arrived very early. We were given our room straight away, lovely room with view over the harbour, a little noisy with traffic but for convenience and service, this hotel ticks all the boxes. The rooms are not luxurious but fresh and clean with... More

Very pleasant reasonably priced hotel. Friendly reception, recently refurbished room overlooking the marina, spotlessly clean, very welcoming staff. One of the best French breakfasts I,ve seen. Lots of choice and fresh ground coffee on tap. Would definitely use again on short trips to Cherbourg.

I stayed in this hotel after arriving from Ireland on the ferry. Reasonable price, small room but clean and comfy. Right in the centre of Cherbourg so very convenient for restaurants and shopping. Pleasant staff.
