“Mid-weekend in Cherbourg”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

This hotel is a charming former maternity hospital centrally located opposite the town hall. The owners took over the hotel in January 2012 and take great pride in the running of the hotel as they renovate. The rooms are small,somewhat dated but clean and functional. There are newspapers,plenty of tourist information and fresh fruit with the optional breakfast.We stayed here as our usual hotel was full and we returned because we found it ideal for our needs. It provides a good base from which to explore Cherbourg and there is a bus stop and parking opposite.

I recently went back to the Napoleon in Cherbourg having first stayed there early this year, shortly after the charming new owners had taken over. It was even better value for money as much work had been done in the interim. It makes such a difference to stay somewhere genuinely friendly and helpful. The breakfast of fruit as well as the usual fare of bread and croissants was for once really good value.

Veru clean, somewhat small rooms but for the price and the location it is excellent value. These are the good and decent quality small hotels that France does well, type of venue worth returning to, much better than the Ibis or Novhotel or the new clean boxes that are continually advertised.

I stayed at the Hotel Napoleon for one night in February 2012. The Napoleon is convenient if arriving or departing by ferry, good parking close by, many restaurants excellent restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is quiet and the rooms are clean. I would stay again, if arriving in France by ferry.

Very good hotel. The new couple running the hotel since January are ready to help you get around town and provide you whatever you need. The hotel is very well located in the town center, not far away from the Cite de la Mer and the marina. A very good deal indeed

The new couple running the Napoleon could not have been more helpful. I was there on business and they went out of their way to point me in the right direction. They also gave great advice on where to eat (easy that one - across the square at La Cale). Location is perfect (there's a brewery bar next door), and the bed was comfortable. And finally, it's amazingly good value given its location.

Room Tip: Room 2 was good

We stayed for one night on our return journey from holidaying in South Vende, with the ferry crossing at 11 am it was the perfect location. The owner was friendly and welcoming on arrival, very helpful and informative, parking was not a problem, our room was perfect for our needs with one double and two single beds in an adjoining family room with en suite, it was clean and comfortable, the only negative was having no facilities for tea/coffee in the room, however there are plenty of cafe's in the immediate vicinity. Breakfast was lovely, traditionally french with choice of cereals, fresh bread and croissants, honey and jams and chocolate spread. For somewhere clean comfortable and cheap to stay I would use again on future holidays in France.
