This is an old hotel Located just inside the Island gate, so you don't have to drag your bags up the hill. Room was comfortable and had quality furnishings. Bathroom en suite. No elevator means carrying luggage up 3-4 flights of stairs to and from room. As far as I could tell, absolutely no cars park on the island overnight.... More

Staying on the island of Le Mount St. Michel is a unique experience. The hotel is nice and clean. You pay for the experience of being on the island an staying in an old hotel. We had 2 triple rooms that were adjoining and were fine. There was tea/coffee in the room, cookies and a free water. I would recommend... More

Least favorite hotel of our two week vacation in Western and Central France.Small, basic room. No elevator and Room 43 was on the 4th floor - 81 steps. Breakfast was 25 Euros per person. The restaurant is over priced. Mont St. Michel is impressive but plan your trip carefully. The parking lots are 2 miles away and the shuttle buses... More

We stayed overnight at this hotel last week. The location is fabulous - just inside the main entrance - and the view is fantastic. It must be remembered that all the buildings on the island are very old, so expect charming and interesting, rather than modern amenities. Thank goodness we had read a recent review, that advised to pack only... More

Not the fanciest or most luxurious hotel on Mont St Michel, but it's the best know & it's the closest to the Mont's entrance & to transportation. These are big, big factors when thinking is schlepping heavy suitcases up a cobblestone hilly street. If you brought your own valet or your on a tour, then OK stay elsewhere. My money... More

Mont St. Michel is a magical place and staying at L Mere Poulard makes it especially wonderful. First, it is right at the gate and you don't have to go through the crowds in the narrow street to get there. 2nd, you can ' take to the ramparts' away from the crowds, just by stepping out the door of the...

We had gone there to celebrate a special occasion and La Mère Poulard, not to mention Mont Saint Michel itself, were just as special! We had great rooms looking out over the three fortified entrance gateways to the new bridge and all the way up the Couesnon river to the new barrage. The rooms, though mine was smallish, were extremely... More

Location, location, location! I doubt many guests stay more than one night, but it was marvellous to spend the night on the "island". The desk clerk was very annoyed that we interrupted her personal phone call when we checked in, and doubly so when we dared to ask for a dinner recommendation (the hotel's restaurant is easily twice the price...

The view from this historic building is unparalleled. It's amazing to look out the windows and see magnificent Gothic structures. Staying on the island is also the best way to see the abbey, since it's possible to walk around at night--lighting is beautiful--and you can be among the first in line for the tour, whereas those staying off the island...
