These are the two hotels we stayed at in the Cherbourg area. The first night we stayed at La Regence which was a little hotel above a restaurant down at the port.
For the rest of the time we stayed at a hotel called L'Erguillere. It had about the best breakfast that I think I've ever had at any hotel or bread and breakfast. It also had a magnificent view of the ocean and is located right next to the smallest port in all of France, Port Racine.
