La Mere Poulard has an excellent position on the main entry road to Mt St Michel. The hotel is very atmospheric and rooms comfortable, however, some guests may need to be aware that there are no elevators available. The dining room is classified as three star but was overpriced for what was actually on offer. A choice of table was not an option although the room was never more than one third full. Staff were not welcoming and tried to hurry us through the meal, suggesting coffee be taken in the piano bar.
The location is terrific. You get to stay "on the rock" which means you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings before/after the tourist buses arrive. Very friendly staff. Old world charm (read: not a luxury accommodation), but we're glad we stayed there. The rooms are older and there are a lot of stairs to get to your room (pack lightly!) Hallways smell of the omlettes made downstairs; luckily the rooms did not. The restuarant is expensive for what you're getting.
Location is very convenient, staff is helpful. The hotel needs a complete renovation. The restaurant does not reflect the quality it charges for its prices.
The location was perfect and the people at the bar, restaurant and front desk were very friendly. Staying the night in Le Mont St Michele is definitely the best way to see the island w/o tourist overload!
Staying on the Mount was wonderful! It was really nice being there when all day trippers were gone
Mont St Michel was a great place to visit. Too many stairs, but I knew that going in.
This hotel is on Mont Saint Michel. Staying here allows you to explore the Mont at night. This is a magical experience. As expected on the Mont, there are many many stairs. Pack very lightly.
Taking a walk along the deserted streets in the morning.
Little accomadation of elderly travellers. Were offered no help in carrying heavy luggage up to 3rd floor, although I appreciate the fact that the hotel switched us to a lower floor.
Being right there is extremely dramatic and night on the island is worth the price. Lots of steps, but that's the nature of the island
Nice room, goodining amenities. In-room coffee pot would be nice but was provided downstairs with breakfast. No wifi. Didn't know we needed dinner reservations, dinners are early on Mont Saint Michel.
The location was really interesting. Maybe the price was too high. Not everytime you can enjoy the see there. Ask before.
The rooms were very adequate, with comfortable beds. The extra pillows were greatly appreciated. The setting on the Selune River was extremely pleasant, and the hotel's proximity to Le Mont St. Michel very handy for our stay. The room decor is somewhat tired-looking and in need of updating.
They were very welcoming on arrival and assisted me to get a parking space as dinner guests were due to leave shortly. No complaints
It's easy to find and they speak a bit of English. There are 3 garden rooms. A bit small, but clean and equipped with big mirror, bath and hairdryer. Location is excellent if the weather is nice (which was not when we were there). Room smells fustiness and that's why the door is open when you arrive. Taking a shower in the bath is difficult as they don´t have a really shower. The carpet in the bathroom is not the most hygienic floor cover. No English channels on tv.
Welcoming staff, clean room
I wish we would have stayed there longer. Great little town with friendly people and fantastic food.
the quality of the seafood cooked and served. Staff so well mannered and responsive very small car park - only large enough for three/four cars - we had to keep having to find somewhere to park out in the main street
Very pretty little village.
A lovely hotel in a quitessentially French location. The surrounds were absolutely beautiful and village shops and cafes within an easy walk. The Garden Room is a lovely room, however if the weather is warm it can be a little difficult to get comfortable as it only has a little window above the door to open to let any breeze in..... The room does however open onto the garden which is a pleasure to wake up to. I'm sure there would be a fan available for you to use if you felt to uncomfortable.....
Very comfortable bed and good soundproofing against street noise (excellent double glazing!) . Could have been noisier if weather had been hot however, as room on front of the hotel
Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent food and wine. Lovely setting beside the river and close to the centre of the town
this hotel is valued for money and good as a transfer point to mont st. michel. simple but comfortable. the staff was nice and got me a double room upon my request. the corridor is a little bit dark at night.
Despite my room apparently wasn't renovated for years, it was very clean and quite comfortable. The linen and towels actually had very nice scent, which is not that common for the hotel in this price range. Very good value. The breakfast was quite poor as for 6 EUR per person.
easy to find in avranches. good parking. near town centre decor rather old and 'battered', otherwise very good value
i missing there fridge in our room....
The location is very good.
The room was spacious, as was the bath/shower room. The hotel was convenient for the town centre. We were given a room facing the street, so it was not as quiet as we had hoped.
The manager/owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs, and the room was very clean and comfortable.
Helpfulness of the staff
let us bring our dog for no extra charge, great breakfast for €6
The best hotel on my way. The best care, no problems at all. Nothing
Amazing location, large room and very clean. Front desk staff was a bit standoffish and not particularly friendly.
The location which is just situated centrally in the Mont itself. Very convenience. The parking, there is no clear indication as in the parking for hotel guess, so we paid €4 for the parking and rather far a distance to walk into the hotel.
Location was excellent and the room where we stayed which was not part of the main hotel had a marvellous view of the bay and the Abbey. This part of the hotel was quiet and one which I would prefer. The room needed a serious refurbishing to keep up with modern facilities and comfort (pillowcases were old and smelt, linens needed to be upgraded, etc). I also felt that the receptionist was tense and not too accomodating to its hotel clients.
Localization, as it is very close to the ocean. Bad information about check-out time by staff, who said we should live 1 hour earlier than information by booking.com.
It was incredible to stay in such an historic place. The views were inspiring from our room.
Greatest place of a 5 country tour. Staying inside the Castle was great. Lots of area to explore (especially at night). Easy to find and staff was very nice.
Being able to have dinner at the Mere Poulard 92 stone steps frfom the reception to the building with the bedrooms
Very good breakfast at "La Mere Poulard" The room was very modest and small for the price paid
Room was clean, location was convenient, price was very competitive
The views from our room were spectacular. Though they aren't fancy, the rooms are comfortable and have all of the amenities needed for a wonderful stay on Mont St. Michel. Breakfast, which is served at La Mere Poulard, was both extensive and delicious. No elevator in the annex building.
Obviously the position, and the breathtaking sight. The room was very comfortable and perfectly clean.
nice view! We cannot check in on time!!!!! We wait more than 1 1/2 hrs in reception! because the room not prepare well!!
Good location. Nice distance from Ferry for first night stopover.
The restaurant was fantastic a very high standard of food and the staff were very friendly and helpful particularly with French / English translation!
We stayed in the new detached building 400m up the hill. It was fabulous, like staying in someone's newly built mansion. Awesome new design and technology, and an indoor pool. Fantastic.
Location Only part of the rooms are newly renovated and we were two couples who reserved two superior rooms. Only one renovated room was given which did seem to be a superior room and the other room was rather old. I got the wrong impression from the web site. Expected more.
Good room for a family Internet not accessible from room, only lobby
Good hotel for a few nights. Good location to stop on the way to the south.
Convenient, prompt service, easy parking Poor lighting in rooms, rather dated, "pink and chintz" decor in public areas.
Convenience of Access Not Applicable
Good location in the town, bistro and bar excellent. Could have better car parking facilities.
Well situated in town centre
The location is great. You can walk to Mont St Michel if you like. There is a supermarket just across the road and a number of restaurants in the vicinty. The room was very basic for the price but we expected that due to the touristy nature of the location. We found the staff to be quite indifferent and not very friendly (although not rude). For this reason we chose to eat at another hotel.
Proximity to Le Mont St Michel. Bit faded and overpriced for its 3 stars.
Location The airplane bathroom
The hotel was charming and the young girl who showed us our room was so nice. No complaints
The hotel exterior was a little tacky with 3-4 plastic style signs. We had 3 flies in our room.
The rooms very clean and the staff very friendly.We would recomend this hotel to other tourists No
The staff was great and the locaton was excellent, nice lttle basc hotel to visit the Mt St Michel, I highly recommend it
Location on mainland right by causeway to Mont St Michel; good varied breakfast; very good restaurant featuring local foods and dishes; friendly and helpful staff; clean and comfortable room. Nothing.
Nice hotel. Good breakfast and location. Be awared that in the city there is no place to eat after 21:00, except Pornston in 7 km.
The hotel was convenient for the visit to Mont St Micheal The staff were very friendly and helpful. The whole area around the hotel is in chaos with road works and building works. The room was basic but comfortable for youngsters but not suitable for an older person. There were a lot of young Japanese Tourists who were polite and friendly but we felt that we were part of that school trip. The dining facilities were rather basic.
The location is the best. I was impressed with the beautiful view of St.Michel from the room.
Excelent view and location. Staff very helpfull Meal service slow and unreasonably priced.
The hotel's facilties are of the highest standard and the buffet breakfast, and restaurant for the evening meals are excellent.
We had a very large room with an unobstructed view of Mt St Michel. Our bath was very large due to the fact it was handicape equipped.Save yourself some euros and stay elsewhere , because we felt the premium for the view was unwarranted , but I must admit the breakfast room view of the Mt was superb.
stuff was extremely unfriendly
Windows with a view of Mont St. Michel.
Dinner and good view from the room.
The view and the location to Le Mont-Saint-Michel The shower head was broken. I hope a better maintenance.
The views over Mont Saint Michel were great. Too expensive for what if offered. Staff wasn't very alert. Very American hotel with no atmosphere.
Good welcome from staff, very helpful and spoke some english. Room comfortable and very clean. Restaurant good value. Not that easy to find. Pushed a bit off the beaten track by new road construction. Did not see any signs, until nearly there. Google Earth has two hotels!!! It is also confused.
The rooms are too small for a couple
The cleanliness and the comfort of the room.
Convenient for Mont St Michel and Avranches Beds are really really hard
Staff very friendly and very efficient. Room fabulous for young children (family room), definately above and beyond a basic hotel room. Husband had mild food poisoning after eating a two course evening meal at the restaurant. Real shame as so impressed otherwise.
We stayed at the hotel as a stopover on the way back to the ferry at Caen. It was perfect for a family as we were in a family room for 5 which was spacious and clean and it was situated minutes from the main road network. We were able to drive 15 mins to Mont St Michel for the morning before our journey to Caen.
The room for 5 was huge! we definitely weren't cramped, and everyone had a place in a bed, not a pull-out couch. The breakfast also had a lot of options. The staff was friendly, though at first they kept saying I didn't have a reservation on the phone (I have a complicated name, hard to spell, especially in french). It overall was a great deal, not lush, but very good for the price
It provided a bed with clean sheets, blanket etc. A wash basin in the room. The showers and toilets along the corridor were clean. The only problem we encountered we could not use the one and only plug socket in the room. Our English adaptor was too big to fit in the space so therefore we were unable to use our computer. Could have done with a kettle for tea or coffee.
I liked the cleanliness and layout of the hotel and did not mind the shower and wc outside the room as they were only a few paces away, and were clean 24/7 due to the automated ckleaning systems. The manager was surly
This hotel is really basic, but that's what we expected from the description on the website and the price. The rooms and beds were clean. There are shared toilets down the corridor and though they were clean there was a slight smell, probably from lack of windows. If you want a cheap overnight stay near Mont St Michel then this one is really easy to find. Personally I would say one night would be enough for me, but if you're travelling on a tight budget Formule 1 is ideal. Corridors were a bit airless.
An excellent place. It is very convenient for those who intend to visit Mont Saint Michel. The personal is very friendly and professional should be awarded for the commitment and dedication. One should emphasize the food which is"...food great food!" apres Balzac. We recommend this place as the best choice in the region. A young couple from Athens
Nice clean hotel with good restaurant and helpful staff. None
Location and price were very good. Staff was pleasant and the room was very clean.
It was situated close to a very beautiful site. the accomodation within the hotel was comfortable indeed and I would come back again the room rate was moderated. I would come back.
The room was nice and the right size for two person All was well, the bed was very bad !!! not comfortable at all, the service was very little
Lovely relaxing hotel, child-friendly and good clean rooms. Le bien nouriture, aussi! None
Staff were welcoming and friendly we were a bit late for breakfast but it was still waiting. The menu tourist was excellent value and potrayed the region. There were none.
Very nice breakfast, kind people, personal threatment.
Very good location for Mont St Michelle, quiet and nice staff
Friendly staff, calm and charming atmosphere, nice location - countryside not far from Mont St. Michel, private parking, nice restaurant. Unreliable Internet connection. Hard to find when using standard postal address as an input to GPS system.
The hotel is beautiful and the owner was most helpful. She spoke English and was able to reserve a dinner and taxi ride(her husband) for us. Breakfast was most satisfactory . Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. breakfast was excellent and served in the cozy bar. and our room was delightful.
Lovely hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and personalized according to different themes. There's also a very lovely garden outside for enjoying breakfast. The breakfast selection is very limited for 9Euros hence I didn't take the breakfast. I would have thought there would be something hot that can be ordered as well alone with the cereals and breads.
Welcoming friendly staff. Very clean. Tastefully decorated and newly renovated. Large rooms with large comfortable bed. Superb location - short car trip to Mont St.Michel and Normandy beaches. Great value for money when compared to similar priced accommodation we experienced in France. Would certainly recommend.
Beautiful building, charmingly decorated and spotlessly clean
Parking We arrived at noon, found the hotel door closed and a sheet of paper stuck to it saying come back at 3:00 PM, or something to that effect. Rung the bell (nothwithstanding the "for emergency only" sign) and did open. We were able to leave our lugagge, but had to leave and were reminded check in was at 3:00. We understand that, but there is a difference between checking into your room, and finding a closed hotel before that hour.
Very comfortable room, excellent grounds and friendly staff.
The proprietor was very nice, the setting beautiful, the room special. It was relaxing and had a very warm feeling throughout.
A beautiful hotel with a friendly, helpful staff. My only regret is that we were there but one night.
very pretty decorations and furniture. beautiful building
location and city as a whole, the mill is charming
Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings, good location room small and a bit smelly, needed a good airing.
Its very pleasant, quiet location alongside the river in a village setting. The size of the hotel gave a homely, informal feeling conducive to relaxation.The room for breakfast had a very pleasing outlook over the river. Nothing really. One had to go out for an evening meal which is an observation rather than criticism.
We found the it had a wonderful atmosphere and very helpful staff and reasonably priced Happy with everything.
It was extremely clean and well maintained in a very quiet atmosphere. Breakfast was also very good. Staff very receptive.
Good location. Convenient to Mont St. Michel.
Pleasant view of the hotel matching well with its surrounding I liked the best nothing in particular
The breakfast was a pleasent surprise!
reasonably easy access for ports. food excellent
Helpful staff and spoke English if needed. Easy to get to and findNo englis No English chanells on TV.
A Very Good Breakfast is Served. Bed Propped Up on Bricks
Nice dinner, great value
Very close to Le Mont St. Michel Very difficult to find this hotel in spite of using a GPS. The coordinates aren't exact. There is a road D-43 and lack home number.
It is better than many Ibis hotels in a good location adjacent to the marina but a walk into town. There are some attractive rooms with port view available. Nice terrace and good restaurant.
The location was excellent for an early morning ferry.
Hotel staff were friendly and informative, and the breakfasts were great! We liked the position of the hotel overlooking the harbour, and the views from the terrace and restaurant. We paid extra for a room with a view of the sea and the harbour, and enjoyed the view very much. The room size was small and felt cramped, despite clever use of a gallery space for two single beds upstairs. The room decor was just awful - a dingy brown colour with dull green paintwork - very depressing. The 'balcony' was laughable - standing room only! We were looking forward to a lovely dinner in the restaurant and 'treated ourselves' to the 'Assiette des Fruits de Mer', only to find a poor selection of the cheapest shellfish topped with half a crab (undressed) - we thought 50 euros was a lot to pay for a load of winkles and whelks, with an inedible crab half on top. So disappointing!
location was great , service friendly an helpful. Room needed renovation.
It's on the harbour: simply fantastic!! I really loved it!
Pretty view from the restaurant at breakfast. There was no check in. We arrived, gave our names, were given the key and pointed to our room. The restaurant is on the 3rd floor. We were on the second and the overhead noise was un acceptable, as was the banging of the room doors due to the cheap and poorly adjusted door closers (sorry but it's my job)
The hotel is very kindly to pets. The breakfast was very expensive.
This hotel really lives up to it's promise: rather big rooms with all comfort found mostly only in 4 stars hotels, seaview (if you book such a room ofcourse), bath, wifi, hairdryer, flathscreen tv, ... You really step out of the hotel over the parking on the sandbeach. Also their seafood restaurant is absolutely top. Well, it's hard to find something negative ... maybe that out of environmental considerations they provide limited amounts of soap ... and there's no airco in the room ... but then again, you've got a very big window seaside that can open so ... I'm just trying hard to find something negative, and as you see, it's very hard to find, a real positive surprise.
Clean and good value for money, with superb restaurant and easy beach location
We had five star service with the pleasure of a much more intimate setting than a big hotel. We will make this the place to stay every year. One would even feel very 'at home' and with friends if one were travelling alone. A beautiful hotel that can be well recommended.
Nothing Mont saint Michel sight is at 15km distance and not 12km as it is specified in this hotel description.
Rooms were comfortable and clean.Food was good. Some staff were not very friendly or helpful.
lady at front desk very nice; beautiful gardens throughout area room small
Use of pool & excellent restaurant. Particularly impressed by family room - kids loved being 'upstairs'. Buffet style breakfast for 10 euro seemed a little expensive. Coffee/tea facility in room would have been good.
the pool no tea and coffee making facilities in the room
A very good meal.
I liked that this was a French family oriented hotel with a nice breakfast selection. Because the hotel is in the countryside the convienence of having a dinner restuarant was good.
Our French was limited so it was helpful having someone who could talk to us in English! We used the hotel as an overnight stopover from Le Havre so its location was good as we felt we had made some progress towards our destination of Brittany. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast the following morning catered for all tastes.
Iit was very good money for value for one night, the heating was one before we arrived so it was very pleasant to enter to the warm place. Clean and simple.
location - Le Mont St Michel around the corner!
Clean. Close to Mont-St.Michel. Quiet.Good for family.
The room is very big and very clean and bright. I especially like the bathroom counter top. With the money we pay to stay here, I would highly recommand this hotel. The staff recommanded a restaurant next door. That restaurant is really for the tourists that they charge more and food is really so so. I would hope they recommand the guesses to the restaurant that local people will go to, so we get a better value.
location within walking distance of mont st michel so saving car park charge at the mont hotel suplies reflective jacket to walk down road at night to see mont st michel lit up recomend taking a torch with you as well many eating places near hotel
The proximity to Mont St. Michel was excellent. The triple room was large and very comfortable. Nice bath room. Reasonable price.
The hotel is clean and well located. Breakfast is abundant and nice serve. Unfortunately, there is not internet service available. In addition, if the guest arrives before 2:30 pm the hotel is closed, therefore it is not possible to leave the luggage and come back later to check in. A room for two was booked, double bed, and the room assigned was had two single beds.
Nice, quite, comfortable no
Quiet and clean; near to Mount St Michel, good restaurants and supermarket nearby. Stairs to climb with suitcases:
help of th staff
the location, short walk or 2 min drive to Mont St Michel; rooms very spacy and quiet surroundings
The location was great - just a three minute drive from the parking area right at the foot of Mont St. Michel. The hotel room and bathroom were very clean and the beds comfortable.
Free on-site, nearby parking. Campus type setting. location
Location, excellent facilities.
Very convenient. Windows that opened. Shop nearby. Would have liked coffee making facility in room. Cheaper hotels in area when actually arrived.
Helpful staff, clean rooms, wonderful restaurant. Thank you for an excellent stay.
Very friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Quality
Comfortable place for a short visit to the area. Able to walk the 2 kl to Mont St Michel. Great convenient restaurant.
Easy to get to and on the main street going out to LeMont St. Michel. We were able to simply walk across the street to a varity of resturants. Parking was free and the location was safe and secure. The site was very pleasent and very much like being in a small village in the country side. Good location and atmosphere. The toilet was in a small room off the main bathroom seemed a bit odd but all the rooms had the same design and it was a very modern style. Really no problem. The rooms were large and well equiped but I would guess the architect had been a naval cruise ship designer at some point because of several design features like the use of fiberglass, doors styles, stairs, and halls all very well done.
The central location was excellent and the staff was very helpfull in obtaining a phone number in the states when I had a problem with an ATM card.
The room was really nice with its mezzanine and the terrace. It was really big for two peoples. People at reception was also really kind. Furthermore, Granville is a nice city is a nice and calm city to see and a good place to stop. It is at only 40 km from the Mont Saint Michel. The parking was really small and it is very dangerous to take a place inside the parking rather than outside.
Beautiful location and lovely views from our room. Very comfortable and spacious bedroom. Excellent breakfast. Very warm and stuffy in hallways and stairwells. Also it was not clear how we could access the beach directly from the hotel.
Rooms good size and well laid out, bed comfortable. Great shower room. Access to and from garage quite difficult, also disliked the fact that one had to go through a hospital to access the beach and promenade.
Very comfortable and clean rooms. Location on seacoast very good, close to sights and parking for travelers. Helpful staff. A good value. Did not have ice!
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and most spoke english. The whole hotel was extremely clean. There was tea and coffee making facilities which was a big plus for me. Could do with air conditioning as it was too warm, and so difficult to sleep
The Hotel quality seemed above it's star rating. The view from the balcony was extremely good. Breakfast was only available at the high price of 12 euros. First day OK, but second day very slow service and lack of many items. Matter resolved by deletion of charge from bill. The sign to the hotel (on the hill) was not legible due to overgrown plants!
The view near the ocean, clean, nice room. I recommand it to everyone. hard to get to, a gps obligatory
The location and the view. It was too hot in the rooms. We had to sleep with window open, with the noise from the street.
Service at breakfast did not keep pace with demand
