Quite a depressing grotty hotel. Like going back 20 years. Stunk of cigarette smoke as you entered the lobby. Room was small, uncomfortable and truly miserable. There are no restaurants in the area and its a bit of a drive to the ferry terminal.

Ideal for those arriving on afternoon ferry. Very close to port. Using satnav found it quickly, a lamp post had a red 'this way' arrow at the last junction. Big car park and free.

Stayed here recently and we were happy with this budget hotel. The hotel was very clean and looked exactly like the picture. Free parking was a bonus and the staff were very nice.

Travellers beware. We got caught out because we didn't know that there is no one in attendance at this place during the day. We could get in until after 5 pm. This hotel is pretty average. It is on a main road and is noisy. The room was basic as was the typical French breakfast of croissaints and bread.

Clean comfortable and convenient but no reception after 11am on Sundays and access requires an entry code which was not given with my on line booking. It was a stressful arrival which took some sorting. My tip check directly with hotel your access/check in arrangements.

Stayed here for a stopover before our European road trip. Hotel was clean, had sufficient parking and helpful staff. Location is fine and there's a nice restaurant next door. Not really much in Cherbourg but as said, it was a good stop over!

If you want simple, clean, cheap and comfortable then this is the place for you. There's very little to complain about especially at this price. Very friendly staff and very efficient. I shall definately stay here the next time in Cherbourg.
