Very well decorated rooms with lovely view of the square with a statue of Napoleon at the end of square. Parking in the carpark 50m from hoel cost 6.20 for nearly 27hrs. Its rated at 2...

We did a cheeky mini cruise from Ireland to Cherbourg (two nights on the boat and one night in Cherbourg). We could not have picked a finer hotel in Cherbourg. The hotel itself is so central for a casual wonder through town. It is a beautiful looking building and it has a quaint old staircase leading to the bedrooms. The...

I stayed at this hotel in December 2013 and although my room was quite basic and up a narrow staircase - it was very clean. The owner (only met the woman) was extremely pleasant, helpful and her young daughter was quite friendly as well. I found the hotel to be near enough to the ferry port (about a 10 euro...

We visited the Hotel Napoleon at the end of our cycle tour from St Malo to Cherbourg. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was basic but spacious and clean. The location is great with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. When we return to Cherbourg we will definitely stay here again!

This is an excellent small hotel for an overnight stay. We visited on the 24th of May at the start of our cycling trip. The rooms are basic but clean and the beds are comfortable.. We had an excellent breakfast before we set off the following morning.. The young couple who run the hotel are delightful and couldn't have been...

After arriving in Cherbourg with a night to spare before our gite rental we stayed at this hotel. The room was small, but very clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant, giving us tips for food and an umberella to keep us dry. There is plenty of free parking in the square outside the hotel; there are many restaurants...

We spent one night at this hotel when we arrived in Cherbourg, what a great decision we made, very helpful and friendly couple run the hotel, even standing in a parking space to keep it whilst we got the car. We weren't going to have breakfast but then decided to go for it and what a great breakfast. The room...

This is our second time here and it just gets better. Yes the bathrooms could do with an update and the rooms are not large but the location is perfect, the service is superb and the place just oozes character. A free car park just 100 meters away and short term parking outside. I bought some tea in the supermarket,...

Took the ferry late afternoon from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and stayed the night at Hotel Napoleon. Friendly welcome by the owners, rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. Parking was difficult as the square opposite the hotel was full but the owners suggested that they can make a slot available. Lastly, our daughter made friends with their daughter and although...

We stayed at this hotel during a cycling holiday in Normandy last week (September 3rd 2014) . The owners looked after us (and our bikes) with care and generosity, offering a clean and well furnished en suite room for an extremely reasonable price. The breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend this hotel for those seeking budget priced accommodation....
