Staying on the Mount was wonderful! It was really nice being there when all day trippers were gone
Taking a walk along the deserted streets in the morning.
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.
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.
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.
Mont St Michel was a great place to visit. Too many stairs, but I knew that going in.
The location was really interesting. Maybe the price was too high. Not everytime you can enjoy the see there. Ask before.
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.
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.
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
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!
friendly helpful staff, easy to find because of bright sign outside and central location Had old world charm the room was a little run down - parking was ok but only until 9am
central location: nice decorative touches in room and hallways: excellent breakfast.
The location was excellent in what I felt was a traditional French family- run hotel. This is so much nicer than those chain plastic hotels one finds everywhere Our double room was quite small
Great location - good to have a family room Need some pictures on the wall -Room 202
A good value stop off hotel
Floor in hotel was very squeaky which must have annoyed those below. Room was small, but bathroom good.
The position to visit places on Brittany.
Convenience for journey to Cherbourg from SW France
No tea/coffe making facilities in room
The best hotel on my way. The best care, no problems at all. Nothing
Helpfulness of the staff
The manager/owner was very helpful and attentive to our needs, and the room was very clean and comfortable.
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 location is very good.
easy to find in avranches. good parking. near town centre decor rather old and 'battered', otherwise very good value
let us bring our dog for no extra charge, great breakfast for €6
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.
i missing there fridge in our room....
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.
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.
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.
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.....
I wish we would have stayed there longer. Great little town with friendly people and fantastic food.
Welcoming staff, clean room
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
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.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent food and wine. Lovely setting beside the river and close to the centre of the town
They were very welcoming on arrival and assisted me to get a parking space as dinner guests were due to leave shortly. No complaints
Very good breakfast at "La Mere Poulard" The room was very modest and small for the price paid
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.
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!!
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.
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.
Amazing location, large room and very clean. Front desk staff was a bit standoffish and not particularly friendly.
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.
Being able to have dinner at the Mere Poulard 92 stone steps frfom the reception to the building with the bedrooms
Room was clean, location was convenient, price was very competitive
Everything is perfect!
Staff very nice; it is very well located; very low price
We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we signed in to our departure, we would highly recommend the hotel for location and a warm hospitality.
Very friendly and welcoming service. Fantastically clean and comfortable bed. We would have liked to have been informed about the extremely noisy Saturday evening entertainment in the theatre/square which went on until 2am. This was presumably for Bastille day. We did not sleep until 3am and then had to travel back to England straight after breakfast. Very disappointing and very annoying.
Had character and was very central
Dinner and good view from the room.
Excelent view and location. Staff very helpfull Meal service slow and unreasonably priced.
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.
The view and the location to Le Mont-Saint-Michel The shower head was broken. I hope a better maintenance.
Windows with a view of Mont St. Michel.
stuff was extremely unfriendly
The hotel's facilties are of the highest standard and the buffet breakfast, and restaurant for the evening meals are excellent.
The location is the best. I was impressed with the beautiful view of St.Michel from the room.
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.
Proximity to Le Mont St Michel. Bit faded and overpriced for its 3 stars.
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.
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.
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 staff was great and the locaton was excellent, nice lttle basc hotel to visit the Mt St Michel, I highly recommend it
The hotel exterior was a little tacky with 3-4 plastic style signs. We had 3 flies in our room.
The hotel was charming and the young girl who showed us our room was so nice. No complaints
Location The airplane bathroom
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.
The rooms very clean and the staff very friendly.We would recomend this hotel to other tourists No
The rooms are too small for a couple
Convenient for Mont St Michel and Avranches Beds are really really hard
The cleanliness and the comfort of the room.
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.
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.
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.
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
Clean room but slightly on the small side. Excellent restaurant serving top class food at fair prices. Breakfast far too expensive
short drive to Mt. St. Michael via the "back roads" excellent bathroom,adequate breakfast.very quiet. the very smart restaurant seemed pricey so we dined out which was no problem at all but this is not a criticism of the hotel.
No transport I cam expressly to visit Mt. st Michel and this hotel is too far and tansportation is poor
It's easy to park the car. It's not so close to Mont. St. Michel.
Charming hotel in the countryside. Staff were welcoming and helpful. The room and bathroom were exceptionally clean. The hotel was in a quiet location so provided a good nights rest. An approx 15-20 minute drive to Mont Saint Michel.
Very nice room and bathroom. Quite area, 20 mins to St. Michel. Looked popular among the locals- the restaurant was full in the evening. Check -in times very weird (15.30-18.30!!). Some staff did not speak good English and menu in the restaurant was in French only, so we had to go to some other restaurant just few minutes away where the menus were translated. Nothing against French people- they all were very nice during our trip, but if they advertise on an international website, they would have to expect foreigners come to their hotel that do not speak French. It was very cold in the room at night.
very good menue and service without car or bike one has to use Taxi to come and go, -even to the le mont St. Michel
Excellent restaurant! Highly recommended. Extremely small simple rooms. Far from St. Michele.
Friendly staff, nice, clean room
Good convenient free parking. Close to high street for restaurants The shower was tiny and there was no attachment for the shower head in the shower. Road noise outside - cars crossing rail tracks, luckily very few trains.
The restaurant at 1st floor must be one of the best in this small town. Annex, in which we stayed, was old and not very clean. No elevator. Broken shutter. Main building (just 2 min walk) seemed nicely renovated.
Transportation connections are ideal. This hotel is right next to the train station and the bus stop for bus route #6 to Mont St Michel. We picked this hotel for that reason, and the bus connection worked very well. This hotel does not have wi-fi but the staff allowed us to use the wi-fi in the lounge of its sister hotel across the road. Very nice people.
room is clearn,good value for short stay. train could be noise in the morning, if u plan to sleep late.
The restaurant at the main hotel across the road. The food was awesome - beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Great value too. Being close to the station was essential for us (too much luggage and travelling by train) and this fitted the bill perfectly. Nothing .
The overall impression was good, and the location to Mont Saint Michel is convenience. No. of staff is too few in the hotel.
Friendly, mature staff. General level of cleanliness. Convenient location.
Quite close to the train station. If the rooms are equipped with hair drier, it would be better.
the hotel was cheap and fantastic, what a cute little town
Staff were friendly
I was very please for the location Mt St-Michel was neer. Aloso the price and service very satisfying Thank you
This was an ideal spot to stay for a night on our way back from Brittany. The location was far enough from Mont St Michel to pay a lesser price, but close enough for easy access - long walk along the canal (approx 3 miles) or short drive. We had the family room which had a clean and well fitted bathroom and plenty of space for a family of four.
staff were very helpful to all geust's of four nationality's during our short stay.The room was clean and fresh.The meal in the restaurant was very good,but please use menu's not the blackboard. A little more effort at breakfast would help. Overall we were very satisfied. Many thanks...
Comfortable clean rooms and close to Le Mont St Michel
it was better if i can rent a bike
Great location to visit Mont Saint Michele. Beautiful view and nice town. Breakfast bar was good, but not included in the price.
We liked the friendly welcome and the very comfortable room which was ready for us. We also liked the quiet location and the proximity to a magnificient monument which we could walk and cycle to.
These were clean, comfortable rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful, and one primary staff member speaks excellent English. (This was not an issue for me, since I speak French, but my two colleagues don't.) The restaurant had good, reasonably priced food for both supper and breakfast. The hotel's proximity to Mont-Saint-Michel is excellent. For travelers on a budget, this was a good choice for visiting the famous island.
There was someone snorign in the next room and I was kept awake most of the night. My room was near the toilets for the restaurant so quite noisy
Very comfortable room, excellent grounds and friendly staff.
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.
Beautiful building, charmingly decorated and spotlessly clean
The proprietor was very nice, the setting beautiful, the room special. It was relaxing and had a very warm feeling throughout.
the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. breakfast was excellent and served in the cozy bar. and our room was delightful.
A beautiful hotel with a friendly, helpful staff. My only regret is that we were there but one night.
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.
very pretty decorations and furniture. beautiful building
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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
Very good location for Mont St Michelle, quiet and nice staff
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.
Lovely relaxing hotel, child-friendly and good clean rooms. Le bien nouriture, aussi! None
Location and price were very good. Staff was pleasant and the room was very clean.
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.
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.
Nice clean hotel with good restaurant and helpful staff. None
Very nice breakfast, kind people, personal threatment.
