Indeed, as you will read with other reviews, it is not a 4 star hotel. The best part of this hotel is the view. Rooms are nice but not necessarily clean (cob webs, stained carpet, bugs in hanging fotos, ...). If they are not going to have air conditioning, they had better install screens on the windows. We were eaten alive by mosquitos. It seems they have a large amount of Asian tourists. Aside from the hotel, the visit to Mont-Saint-Michel is borderline not worth it. It is as others have written, a tourist trap with cheap restaurants and souvenir stores. Although the buildings are authentic, nothing else is. Additionally, it is apparent that one family/company own a majority of the hotels and restaurants. It's a money making setup only and not really concerned with the experience of the guest.
This is a very old hotel and I honestly think it is 3 stars at most. Everything are old and there was even NO service to carry our luggage when we arrive. The standard room does not even have a coffee machine. The dinner area can see a panorama view of Mont Saint Michael and their lamb steak was very good. But really they do not have sufficient employee to provide any quality service, no one even change the plate in the breakfast time. Will not consider to come back here again
We had a wonderful stay here for two nights in April. Like other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is the closest to the Mont, so the views are unobstructed. Our rooms were on the 2nd floor, just above the restaurant. These rooms had large balconies with perfect views -- not all rooms have the same vantage points, so I would make specific requests for these rooms if you can. The hotel itself is a little dated, but we found it to be clean and well kept. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful with anything we needed. The restaurant staff were also very, very nice. The rooms had plenty of space and ours had pod coffee makers that we made good use of. Overall, we were very comfortable there and enjoyed our stay.
I had a room with a view, which included a nice balcony and glorious views of the Mont St Michel. Comfortable beds, spacious bathroom. Very clean. It is beyond the gate that keeps traffic out of the causeway to the Mont, so if you are driving you need to call the hotel on the day of your arrival and request the code for the gate (they told me the code is changed daily). Parking fee was a few extra euros, certainly less than you'd pay to park in the municipal lots. You're paying for the view, and it was worth it to me.
it is the closest hotel to the mount.it has a wide garden and bright spacious rooms with mini fridge, bathrobes and toiletries coffee machine with capsules.. bottle of wine... everything is perfect.. the diningroom also faces the mount.
We spent one night at le Mont Saint Michel and stayed at this hotel. The services and the quality of the room only worth two stars but we had to pay 420 euro for a very basic room. The ONLY good thing about the hotel was the view. You can see le Mont Saint Michel from the balcony (only some of the rooms), however, it was so far away, so unless you have those expensive cameras, you won't be able to see it in your pictures. If you want to take good pictures you can walk to the city where there are many good places and a better view to the nice abbey. And I think one day trip is more than enough, we took the 9am train and arrived there in the afternoon, we spent several hours taking picture and back to the hotel. We ended up have nothing to do in the next morning...
The view from the room is incomparable! You can enjoy the great view of Mon Saint Michel day and night. What I recommend most is in the morning, just before sun rise, which is really awesome! You can also enjoy a famous view of sheep through grass if you bring binoculars. However, the service is really awful. I made a reservation of a table for dinner by email one week in advance and received their confirmation. I confirmed it at the reception at our check-in, but anybody at the restaurant did not know our reservation, and left us alone for a while without apology. We got really mad and decided to have a dinner at a restaurant nearby. Other people in the restaurant also looked tired and board waiting for food. So there should be something wrong with the staff and service. Still I would recommend this hotel to those who would enjoy the view of Mon Saint Michel if you are patient. 部屋からのモンサンミシェルの眺めは素晴らしい。 夜のライトアップ、朝焼けを背景にした幻想的な姿を堪能できます。オペラグラスを使うと、草むらの間からは草をはむ羊の姿も！ メゾネットタイプの部屋で上にベッドがあったのですが、ベッドルームスペースからも眺めることができます。ただ、スタッフのサービスは最悪。夕飯のテーブルを1週間前にメールで予約し、コンファメーションの返事ももらい、チェックイン時にも確認したのに、時間にレストランに行ったところ、予約が通っておらず隅に追いやられ、謝罪の言葉もなく放置されたので頭にきて出ていき、近くのメルキュールのレストランで食事しました。レストランの他のお客様も、待たされている方が多かったようでうんざりした顔をしていました。受付もかなり適当な感じで、スタッフには問題があるようです。純粋に眺めを堪能するだけでも価値があるホテルだと思いますが。
I am sitting in Le Relais Saint Michel right now waiting for my main course that took 40 minutes and a trip to remind staff just to order! I can't really fault the room or the location. Both very acceptable for the the price we paid of 120€ Apparently eating anywhere within a few miles of here is a total no-no after 8.30 pm so we arrived for our pre booked dinner at the hotel restaurant at 8.15. The restaurant was NOT full by any means. We waited 35 minutes with not one visit from the waitress. So the wife headed back to the room to get some water we already had. I waited 5 more minutes then walked to the front bar to ask to order a drink and food. Once taken the starter arrived in decent time (with out the bread we also asked for and had to re-request). Main course has still not arrived after 45 mins (after turning up wrong once, with NO apology and no cleared plates from the starters). By this time, 9.55, the place was pretty much empty. We witnessed staff being appallingly rude to other diners it actually made us even more frustrated. All of this with no apology or acknowledgement from staff as to their terrible service. Eat here at your own risk although I suspect like us you really have no choice of anywhere else if staying in the hotel.
It was good. The front desk was helpfu and very nice and patient with my terrible French. The breakfast was delicious and traditional French. The Abby was close enough to walk to and from (almost 1.5 miles). But there is a free bus that picks you up in front of the hotel that can take you out to the Abby. The only annoyance is if you drive into the city the hotel is located in, La Caserne, you need a code. You have to call the front desk for the code and they charge an extra fee of about $14 for Parking inside the city. But it's only a small annoyance and not something that would deter me from going back to this hotel. Plus you can park in the free parking outside the city and take the free bus into the city that has a bus stop right in front of the hotel.
I was expecting a little bit more when i paid that money for this hotel. Had spider webs everywhere, a finger thickness of dust and someones tissue in the drawer! 🤢 yuck!!! The only reason i am giving 2 stars is because of the view nothing else!
