Le Relais Saint Michel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is the best placed hotel opposite Mont St Michel. The rooms are well done all looking out towards Mont St Michel. if you are staying 1 say it is the hotel to stay at. however, it does need an uplift and looks slightly faded and not at its best. it needs a lick of paint and some fresh decorative features. The towels look old and the bathrooms need some re-grouting just to look fresh. The coffee machine still had old cafe capsules in. The restaurant looks over the bay but with the industrial lighting which is more suited to a canteen you cant see the main tourist attraction! The problem is that this is owned like everything else in the area by La Mere Poulard and the whole experience is packaged for mass tourism ( high end ) from Asia. It has lost its charm as a result. the saving grace though are the lovely staff - especially in the restaurant. Julie the manager is professional, warm and attentive and made our stay really memorable. Thank you Julie!!!
We booked this hotel because of the promised view. We did not get a view of Mont St Michele, we got a view of a tree. I did enjoy the patio. The staff at reception were incredibly rude, with one staff member drinking what looked like a beer at the front desk while ignoring customers trying to check in. The room is dated and DIRTY, insects crawling around the floor, mildew around all the tiles in the bathroom. I am surprised this is a 4 star hotel, I doubt it would rate a 2.
A great hotel as close as you can stay to Mont St Michel without being on it.. a little out of date decor wise but importantly clean, tidy and the staff are helpful and speak good English - their English is better than my French anyway. You could probably stay somewhere cheaper, but you won't stay somewhere with a better view!
It is a very nice hotel, large rooms with view (additional) bus stop in front of the hotel that will get you to the abbey for free. Lots of restaurants in the abbey for some traditional food practically served in all the restaurants.
The hotel is the nearest to Mont St.Michel with a wonderful view of the cathedral. Rooms are well laid down. You can reach the hotel opening the bar leading to its place through a code which is daily communicated to the customers (by phone upon your arrival). The restaurant is ok although not outstanding. The only real drawback is that rooms are available only from 4pm which is very inconvenient if if you arrive in the morning. But you must vacate rooms at 12am. Choose a room with a view of the mont.
We stayed here during our short visit to Mont St Michel. We reserved a room for 2 adults with 2 children and got a very large room with a loft. The kids slept in the loft and had their own bathroom and TV area. From our room we got a nice view of Mont St Michel. It is about a 3-5 min walk to the shuttle stop. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that plans to visit Mont St Michel. To avoid tourist crowd we arrived at Mont St Michel around 5:30pm. The sun was up till close to 9pm. We were able to walk around the entire place while only came across less than a dozen tourists. It was very nice and quiet. At night I took the shuttle back to the mount to take picture as it was lit till midnight. We returned again the next morning to take more pictures, had breakfast and headed back to Paris right when tour buses started arriving.
The outside looks like a restaurant. There is no outside sign that indicates reception. There was no one at the front desk. I had to stand there while calling for someone, saying "Hello?" a dozen times. There was no one to help with luggage and no luggage carts. The building is in disrepair, wall paper peeling, paint chipped, mildew bathroom caulking, no wash cloths, which is typical of Europe (I pack my own), carpet stains and the hallways and room smelling like a dirty filthy ashtray. The balcony was spacious with a nice view of Mont Saint Michel. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and informative.
We booked via booking.com 5 days before intended arrival. They confirmed and offered an attractive price. Except the day before they retracted and offered a 3 star hotel the la Digue explaining the room we were allocated had a water leak. I visited le Relais to be told by Denis that every room was full. What even my room with a leak? No sir the receptionist confirmed there was no leak - they were full. I asked to see the Hotel manager & the room with the leak- he was too busy. They lied to us and didn't even come to apologise. Later another lady reception gave us a half bottle champagne. They still lied. La Dique had no fridge & no facility to make a coffee in the room. After an 8 hour drive can you imagine how furious we were. I hope the hotel manager sees this & contacts me to apologise. Be honest with your customers
This is one of the best 4 stars hotels I knew, Everythinh was perfect, but the most is the terrace with magnific view to Mont Saint Michel. The room is beautifull, big, with a king size bed, very confortable. I strongly recommend this hotel to those visiting Le Mont Saint Michel.
Although tired, this hotel provided all of our needs. The service was flawless. I would recommend it to others and I would stay here again if the opportunity arose. We stayed here one night only, to visit the The Abbey which was unforgettable. Wish we had stayed 2 nights We relied on public transport to get us from Renne station to Mont St Michele. Hadn't realized when booking our train the following day that the bus connection to the train station didn't begin until 10am - our train departed for Marseille at 9:50am. The hotel staff were very helpful in organizing a private driver for us early the next morning. It was $100 euro we hadn't anticipated though we were very grateful for the service.
