Mercure Mont Saint Michel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Honest hotel - some carpet stains, tiny WC/toilet but a good size room. No lift or help with luggage so be careful. BUT DON'T EVEN THINK OF GOING TO THE RESTAURANT! Terrible terrible service from the manager JEROME - rude, arrogant so say the least. Thank goodness we were VERY lucky with our waiter. At the reception also no problems.
Ground floor motel style access room. There is some noise from the street relatively early in the morning when utility trucks service the Mont. Biggest drawback: trying to make you pay for decent wifi, which is so 20th century. Staff helpful for business delegation.
The staff was professional and helpful. The hotel reminded me of a motel along a US highway, It was clean, adequate size, and comfortable. However, it is the location that allowed me to give it the 4th star. If you travel to Mont St Michel and are planning to stay in a hotel, stay in one in the gated village. The shuttle buses stop in front of the hotel. You don't have to pay for parking. It is basically a pedestrian area. It is very near the island. I would stay here again. The breakfast, which I paid for in the room charge, was good and included hot and cold items. Service was good. We ate dinner there the previous evening and it was average.
The rooms at this hotel were spacious and clean, but felt a little bit dated. The bathroom was fine. The hotel is in a gated area, so you should try to book before you arrive to get the gate code. There is plenty of free parking. The receptionist at the hotel was rude but efficient, and the waiter in the restaurant was unhelpful as well. We couldn't eat at the hotel as we didn't have reservations. After seeing the other hotels in the Mt. St. Michel area I think this one is probably one of the nicest, but nothing great. There is a shuttle to Mt. St. Michel right outside the hotel, but we had a tough time getting on in the morning. It picks up from the paid parking lots first and was completely full every time it came by. Very frustrating for paying extra to stay so close.
We've reserved 2 nights in December. The room was clean, comfortable bathroom, well furnished, hot in winter, a nice view at the river, spacious inside, includes a parking space and very good restaurant (recommended for their delicious lamb). Staff very friendly and service correct. Buses stop in front of the hotel. 20 minutes walking from Mont St. Michel. Reservation was made easily online. You need a code from the Hotel to enter the region. Recommended when you visit the Mont.
We stayed here only one night so that we could experience the Mont without all of the day tourists. I was honestly a little apprehensive about how this would be, thinking it may be overrun with tour groups etc...Since I'm a light sleeper, I emailed the hotel directly, well in advance, to request a quiet room. They responded quickly and told me they would hold a quiet room at the end of a corridor, overlooking the park. When we checked in, I noticed that there were notes with my reservation and they had, indeed, held that room for us, so that was excellent. The room was good. Our room actually had two doors - the outside entrance door (from interior corridor), and a door which separated the area with the beds from the bathroom area. There was a separate water closet room from the bathtub and sink area. The bathroom area was very nice, having recently been redone. Waterfall shower, modern tile, towel heater, very roomy. Free wifi, with no reception issues. The sleeping area was not as up to date, but our room was perfectly fine. It was also the largest one we had while in France. There is a safe, a kettle, a mini-fridge/bar, and plenty of storage space. The beds were comfortable. As for noise, I didn't hear a thing. Couldn't have been happier. The hotel is right in front of where the bus stops that comes from Pontorson, which is how we arrived, after riding a train from Bayeux. Very convenient. We couldn't see the abbey from our hotel, but there was a path right outside our room that led to it. It was great to be able to walk over at night to get night pictures. However, keep in mind that, at least at the end of May, it doesn't get fully dark until at least 11pm. We also ate dinner in the restaurant, and had no trouble getting a table - probably because we were one of the first there when it opened for dinner. We ordered one of the "menu" choices for €24 a piece and it was a delicious meal. Well worth the money, and actually, a bargain. One of the best meals we had while in France. Not sure if this experience is consistent with other reviewers, but this was our experience. Overall, I was very happy with the accommodations and the restaurant. This is not a five star hotel, but it is very suitable for a short stay and will not stretch the wallet too much. I was trying to decide between this hotel and the Relais de Roy, and I am so glad we chose this one.
The staircase to go to the room is very depressing and one feels like in a cheap motel. The man receptionist was just so rude and totally fed up with tourists and their questions. Quite odd to behave in this manner. Once in the room it was a bit better, the room size is correct and facilities are average. What was weird is that the room was only partially renovated. The strong point is the proximity of the free shuttle to Mont Saint Michel. Breakfast is very basic and clearly not of an acceptable standard for a four star hotel. They are much better alternatives in the same street. Never again!!!
Mercure Mont Saint Michel is well situated in the commercial area on the continent facing Mont Saint Michel. You can easily hop on the shuttle bus that stops in front of the hotel. As well, you can walk along the river bank at the back of the hotel to the dam. Just a few hundred meters and we did that three times at dawn and dust to enjoy the view from the dam. The hotel is simple and relaxing, typical holiday setting. Staff are all very nice. Room is large enough with well equipped bath room. The hotel's restaurant serves very good seafood at reasonable price. If arrive by car, you need to ask Mercure for a code to enter the commercial area than you can park your car just outside the hotel. More information you can find on the Mont Saint Michel official tourism website.
Be prepared for lots of people, but don't worry, they are all used to it and manage very efficiently. Free bus to the Mont. but walk it, it is worth the view and is only 30 mins. Meals and drinks not cheap, although I am sure there are places where it is less expensive.
First of all, the rooms are very ordinary but well equipped. The key here is the convenience to the shuttle busses going back and forth to Mont St Michel. You cross the street to get the shuttle TO the island. The shuttle drops you off right in front of the hotel. The room was clean and simple. I wasn't looking for anything more. I had given thought to staying on the island; however, there are some drawbacks (even though the places looked very "quaint"). The busses go from 8am to 12midnight. So, if you want to get up for sunrise, you'll have to walk over the causeway (over a mile, I think) to get to a spot to photograph. But, the big thing is that you have to take a shuttle which means dealing with luggage, and that doesn't include dealing with it on cobblestone streets on the island. Anyway, I found this the perfect location and the breakfast was just fine. Pretty much continental with eggs and bacon also available. Again, the restaurant staff was very friendly. One IMPORTANT note which I missed .... IF you are driving your own car, you MUST have a code to get through the gate to where the hotel is. If you don't have a code, you must have a way to ring them from the gate. I didn't but sped through behind a car carrying Gendarmes (not a good idea). Once there, I parked very close to my room and was able to enjoy my visit.
