We stayed for one night in Cherbourg and chose to stay at the Ambassadeur Hotel. This 2 star hotel is located in the centre of Cherbourg, on the quayside.
The hotel staff were friendly enough and the common area of the hotel were tidy and clean. We were pleasantly surprised by our room, which was a good size and had nice views over the port. The bathroom was clean and facilities good.
Unique Quality: At a cost of 36 euros for a single room and 58 euros for a double, we felt that it was good value. We had breakfast at the hotel (extra charge) which was the typical French style of a baguette, croissant & tea or coffee.
The best part was that the hotel was located right in the middle of town, walking distance to most attractions, and plenty of parking available nearby.
We spent two nights at Easter at this hotel - booked over the internet & were a little apprehensive about what we would find... our concerns were unfounded because it was great.
The hotel is on Quai de Caligny in the centre of town, surrounded by a number of restaurants & bars. There's also a large public carpark at the rear (free after 6pm on Saturday until Monday morning) and also plenty of on street parking.
There's a lift so you don't need to trek up the stairs, the rooms are spotless with huge well-lit bathrooms & plenty of wardrobe space.
The continental breakfast is plentiful, fresh & yummy. We liked it so much, we're going back next year!
Unique Quality: The location is fabulous - there's rooms (at a supplement) with a view of the port - we economised & got a standard room... with a side view of the port!!! (room 303 if you're interested)
It cost us just €98 for two people on a two night stay, including breakfast... an absolute bargain compared to the "chain" hotels in Cherbourg which are all on the outskirts of the town in fairly drab areas
