Cherbourg’s Ambassadeur Hotel history

The building used to host a dentist and the ‘Maison de Paris’ which used to sell trousseaux for men and young men.
There also used to be flats and a few chambermaid rooms still visible today.

In 1989, a footballer bought 3 buildings, transforming them in a hotel-restaurant under the name of “Vauban”. In 1992, the restaurant and the hotel were separated and became the Vauban restaurant and the Ambassadeur Hotel.

In 2014 Karine and Ludovic Hamel took over the Ambassador Hotel and upgraded the establishment to 3 stars.
Our team of 25 employees watches over you with discretion and attention and welcomes you with
smile 24/7.

In 2022, the hotel obtains the Green Key label and highlights its commitment to
the environment and ecology.

In April 2023 and after long months of work, the Breakfast room is getting a makeover and
expands by taking place in the former “Vauban” restaurant.

Since 2024 a new renovation program has been launched. Bedrooms and bathrooms
will be renovated in order to always satisfy the requests and requirements of our customers. There
warm and elegant interior decoration offers a unique, modern and relaxed atmosphere.

Far from the hubbub of tourism, Cherbourg, at the far end of the Cotentin Peninsula, is a gateway to Europe, half way between the wildness of the “Hague” and the “Val de Saire” valley with its picturesque ports and preserved landscape.

We will be delighted to guide you through your choice of visits across the typical Norman “bocage” landscape.
