Reviewed 9 August 2012

Our family was bitten alive in our beds - either bed bugs or fleas. My 5 year old daughter had close to 50 bites on her. When we told the manager in the morning he was very dismissive and didn't seem to care, blaming it on another holiday makers suitcaes. This was the last night of our holiday before coming home on the ferry. After a wonderful two weeks, to have that spoilt by a unhygenic hotel, was a real shame. DO NOT STAY at this hotel.

Very convenient location once you've found your way around Cherbourg's one way system , if you're using the ferry pick up the town map after your outbound voyage . Very fresh pastries and bread for breakfast

I would have rated this hotel higher except that on our inward journey to France we had stayed at "Best Hotel" St. Lo, which was nicer, more recently decorated, well located, and yet similarly priced, and with a full cooked breakfast rather than coffee and a roll.
Comparitively this hotel was not as good, but was still adequate for our needs.
I have no complaints about this hotel.

We found the price good and the rooms clean. The bathroom decor is dated but it was clean and that's the most important thing. They tried hard with decorating the rooms and it made you feel they cared. There's a pretty courtyard in the centre of the hotel onto which all the rooms (I think overlook). Breakfast was a tasty croissant and some bread and jam. The night we stayed some girls could be heard singing to pop songs. Wether this was guests or not I can't tell you, but thank fully they stopped by the time I had to go to sleep. I should say the guy at the desk was v helpful in helping us find a car parking space.

Room Tip: We enjoyed staying on the ground floor rooms.

Nice little hotel on a side street; great value for the money. Clean and with a simple breakfast (croissant, bread, coffee or tea). We were shown to a small room on the 2nd floor (no lift) -- it looked recently redone and modern, but was not ready for guests! Instead we ended up in a rather large room off the court yard -- a nice room, but the blinds had to be closed for any privacy.

Room Tip: No stairs for the courtyard rooms, but little privacy unless the blinds are closed.

A very clean hotel which offers a great place to start out from while visiting Cherbourg. Arrived before 2pm so couldn't check in but did manage to leave bags with hotel. On check in very short and sweet. No real chit chat. Still always say bonjour when we go past the desk. There is what looks like a nightclub opposite but we haven't noticed any noise. Mind you we are located at the back of the hotel.
A good clean hotel for the money

Clean and cheap, but the room I had was very small - so small it was claustrophobic.
