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

My understanding is that most of the hotels - that are reasonably priced and actually on the Mont -are all equally mediocre. Well, Hotel du Guesclin's price and restaurant would qualify for it as the best among the mediocre. We almost overlooked this hotel in favor of one more than twice its price because Hotel du Guesclin doesn't book through... More

We stayed here at the recommendation of Rick Steve's book. We wanted to stay on the island of Mont St Michel and beat the morning crowds. We did not stay here for the comfort but more for the convenience of the location. The owners were kind and friendly and also ran the restaurant at the hotel on the 2nd floor.... More

A great little gem. Great views and very nice staff. It's in an old place and wifi not strong anywhere. What does one expect when you choose to stay in such a historic location? Well worth staying on the island and this particular hotel not as expensive as some on mainland. If you like staying in quirky places filled with... More

Staff were helpful, though not too helpful if that makes sense. The view from our rooms was really cool. The breakfast in the morning at the hotel was pretty good but not overwhelming. Not sure why sat everyone eating breakfast as far back from the beautiful view of the water? We think it was because they were getting it ready... More

This hotel is located on the ramparts of Mont. St. Michel. After the shops close at 5pm and all the tourists leave, you are free to explore the island with few other people. And once the sun goes down the Abbey lights up. You can lean out the window of the hotel and see part of it, or you can... More
