The room was fine and reasonably priced, but the real appeal is you'll wake up in the morning with the island to yourself. I got up at 7am, and walked pretty much everywhere and saw two other tourists. The light was perfect for photography. A nice bonus was the view of the Abbey from our window.

I wanted to stay on the Mont overnight and your choices are limited. This seemed to be the least expensive choice. Our room was small, but very adequate. We had a wonderful view of the mud flats and walls from our window. The entrance is a little confusing, but ask at the counter. The Mont is wonderful at night after... More

If you go to Mont Saint Michel stay over night and choose Hotel Du Guesclin! Not a long walk up the hill makes it a plus but it's the staff that makes it an A+!! In addition to location, being the only family run hotel on the island and the price also made it appealing----We were not disappointed. Although we... More

a small room with an enormous view of the bay. The English speaking staff was a warm, friendly and very helpful group. Perfectly located, not high on the mountain, easily accessible from the shuttle, and the most beautiful restaurant on the island. I'd go back in a minute.

After a morning visiting Mont St Michel Abbey we called in here for lunch. Lovely dining room with panoramic view of the bay. We chose the 16 euro 2 course menu which included a glass of wine and were delighted with the value for money. I chose the Mont St Michel soufflé omelette followed by camembert and green salad while... More

At first, we felt concerned as correspondence with this hotel appeared delayed. Once we got there, we understood. This Hotel (I believe) is one of the few family run places. They also run their restaurant as well, so their hands are busy non stop. While simple, we were delighted with the outdated yet super clean accommodations. The incredible silence on... More

We booked one night and arrived late around 5, yet the tourists were still everywhere. If only staying one night, pack a backpack instead of dragging your bags over the cobblestones. Hotel is well located, clean, great views and has good food. Price was right and we just can't see coming here for a day trip with all the crowds.... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but at the Restaurant Panoramique. We were on the island in the early evening and I had done some research into restaurants, which advised that mediocrity and over-pricing was the order of the day on the Mont. What we discovered is some restaurants have two levels, a lower level with a below average menu... More

For a very unique experience, stay here in this family run, excellent value hotel. Be prepared to carry your luggage up multiple flights of stairs. Rooms tight but comfy but many have views of the Abbey lit up at night. Restaurant serves good dinners in a room with all windows looking out at the water. Or mud. But a fabulous... More

We got a bay-view room with half-board and it was great. The bath isn't the size of a postage stamp, and it's just a beautifully done room, with lots of plugs, and it even had two bars of soap - one of for the shower and one for the sink - a first on this trip. And while the shower... More
