Very nice experience in the hotel, staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. But there was some issue with the heat for my room not coming on.

Excellent room, dining facilities disappointing

Irvine D. Couples - 23/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As expected, the room was excellent, spotlessly clean, with a great bed and a great shower, and a lovely outlook to a wooded area. We arrived on a Sunday and had a meal in the evening. It was unexciting and we were disappointed. There was only one other couple there, which says something. The staff were pleasant and helpful.

Place was clean and good value

The place was nice but the food at dinnertime was not the best

Dear DAVID M., Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment following your stay. Please accept my apologies if you have any problem with the restaurant. Our slate changes every day and the cooking is homemade. It's a pleasure to see you again. Regards. Virginie.

While a bit further from the water than I thought, this was a great place to stay before meeting family at the ferry. Exceptionally clean, decent breakfast, comfy beds and very welcoming staff. I would stay here again.

Hello, A big thank you for your comment left following your stay in our establishment. We look forward to welcoming you back to our home! Yours truly.

Bonjour Mme f., Je me permets de vous contacter suite à votre séjour. Vous attribuez une mauvaise note et je souhaitais connaître les raisons. Je me souviens de votre arrivée car j’étais présente quand ma collègue a fait votre arrivée. Vous aviez réservé pendant les fêtes de fin d’année et dans cette période compliquée, nous avons conservé les arrhes versés d’un montant de 201.08 €. Il y avait effectivement un dépassement comme le tarif de Décembre était un tarif promotionnel. Je suis désolée si cela a été un problème mais comme je vous l’ai expliqué cela n’est pas de notre ressort. Je me souviens vous avoir remis une remise pour être au tarif indiqué par téléphone. Car nos tarifs peuvent variés selon l’activité. Je me tiens à votre disposition si vous souhaitez échanger avec moi. La satisfaction de nos clients est très importante. Au plaisir. Virginie. Directrice.

Ugly room

Noname Business - 17/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed one night in a room in the roof. Floor, walls covered with very bad material. The bathroom does not give you the idea to take a shower... Having already stayed there, I know the other rooms are normals (Ibis standards)

Monsieur T., Nous vous remercions d’avoir pris le temps de nous écrire à la suite de votre séjour à ibis Cherbourg La Glacerie. Nous sommes désolés que le service et la prestation n’aient pas été à la hauteur de vos attentes, et nous vous prions d’accepter nos plus sincères excuses. Les hôtels Ibis sont désireux de vous offrir la meilleure qualité de service pour vos séjours ; par conséquent, votre avis est très précieux. Pour ce qui est de la salle de bain, c'est une chambre à mobilité réduite que vous avez eu. Effectivement, peu agréable de part sa grandeur mais bien pratique pour les utilisateurs. Peut être que nous aurions pu vous déloger dans une autre chambre pour votre confort. N'oublier pas que nous sommes ouverts h24. Au plaisir de vous revoir lors d'un prochain passage. Bien cordialement, L'Equipe IBIS La Glacerie

Well located easy parking.

I booked for my partner who’d taken me to ferry.Unfortunate as new restrictions had just come in for bars,cafes and restaurants so after driving all day he couldn’t get a hot meal.I would have thought some arrangement could have been made to cater.Even if people ate on their own in their rooms.Otherwise fine we’ve both stayed before,very handy for ferry at Cherbourg.

Hello, With the virus, we had to close our breakfast buffet. We offered customers a meal tray. I hope to be able to welcome you again in better conditions. Sincerely, Virginie.

Excellent in every respect that suited our purpose.

Only a short journey from Cherbourg ferry terminal, this hotel is perfect for a late arrival or an early departure ferry. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and there are tea and coffee making facilities, which you don’t normally get in French hotels. There was even an English news channel on the TV. I must, however, mention the shower. This was by far the best shower I have ever used in a hotel. It was roomy, the shower head adjustable and the water was hot and constant. The food was very good, the choice at breakfast was varied and plentiful. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again and, in future, look for other Ibis hotels to stay in while on our travels.

Dear Sir, Thank you for the note you gave us and also the nice comment. We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay in Cherbourg. We are doing our best to please the customers and we are happy to read that kind of nice comment. Thanks again, Regards, Justine - Receptionnist.

Easy to park, pleasant meal, very clean and efficient, helpful,likeable staff, quiet and rather sterile location, but very east to get to, and straight on to road to Caen. Easy to take a dog, and no hassle.

Dear Madam, Dear Sir, We thank you for your feedback and are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. In waiting to welcome you again, Kind Regards, Marine - Réceptionniste

Being just off the main route from Paris, the hotel is conveniently located for the ferry. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant offers a good choice on the menu. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

Everything about the Hotel was great except we were not over pleased with the Dinner menu, Good price, but not moist enough. The Service from the staff in all sections was excellent,would never bother about staying anywhere else in Cherbourg.

Dear Madam, First of all we would like to thank you for leaving a review on Tripadvisor. It is with pleasure that we read your comment. We are sorry to read that you had a bad experience with your dinner. We hope that we will be able to welcome you soon. Kind Regards. Marine_ Receptionist

An excellent value for money hotel near to Cherbourg Port. We stayed after arriving in France at 19.15 on the Poole - Cherbourg Ferry and had an excellent dinner in the restaurant although there is a famous burger chain place nearby.

Kate B Couples - 11/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Clean well appointed hotel.Good location for the ferry port.(7 miles approx--easy drive) Let down by the restaurant which could not accommodate a vegetarian meal-- only salad or mushroom risotto (allergic to these)Desert returned as out of date--no apology.. Staff had limited or no English and not concerned..Surprising as this is a route for many International and English speaking travellers.Have not had this problem with the many other Ibis hotels we have stayed in. After a long journey to this hotel from Dijon we had looked forward to the meal in the restaurant. What a let down.

Hello, We thank you for taking the time to leave us your impressions during your visit to our Hotel. Delighted that you had a pleasant stay despite the disappointment at the restaurant. We did not understand about your allergy. You took a dish that you chose. is this a translation error? Please excuse us. Yours truly The IBIS Team Cherbourg

Very clean and comfortable room. Nice bathroom with an excellent shower cubicle. Could do with more accessible electric sockets but otherwise we had no complaints. We checked in online which was quick and easy and check out was no problem. Have stayed here several times. Great WiFi and safe parking.

Thank you for trusting us like every time we come. We are delighted that you had a pleasant stay with us! Looking forward to seeing you again ;-) See you soon

janew335 Couples - 30/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

We just spent one night in this Ibis, mainly a shopping trip so it's location near the Auchan hypermarket was just right. We decided it was worth the extra cost to stay at the Ibis rather than Ibis budget located next door as the bathroom layout is much more convivial.

Johnjohnston379 Solo travel - 06/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is located off the route from Caen and is about 15 minutes from the centre of Cherbourg. It’s therefore a very convenient overnight stop for anyone travelling to catch a ferry the following day. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The reception staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant is open until 2230 hrs (the steak is scrumptious).

Dear John, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the ibis Cherbourg La Glacerie. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Marine - Réceptionniste
