I viewed our stay on MSM with trepidation as the reviews are so Mixed. However I am happy to report that while the Auberge is not luxurious, it is comfortable and perfect for one night on the island. I am writing this review in bed and I have to say I am more than happy with the accomodation. The room... More

I was somewhat dreading staying overnight on Mont St. Michel b/c of all of the bad reviews but my husband and I had a wonderful time! It was easy to park the car, take the shuttle to about 1/4 mile away from the entrance and get to the hotel. We checked in at the restaurant desk and a young man... More

Unfortunately, the place is really really bad, dirty, old, smelly and we did spent a lot of money. Sadly I have to say that the whole Mont-St-Michel looked kind of dirty, we had breakfast in a place full of bird's poop everywhere, thank God we didn't get anything. And this is supposed to be the second most visited place of... More

I'm giving it very good rating due to our view of the ramparts and water - sure, the room wasn't the Ritz, but the whole atmosphere of the island, the abbey, narrow streets, etc. We had a small room with a low roof and random height ceiling (low), and the window within room faced the sky, but the bathroom view...

We stayed at the annexe which is just below the entrance of the abbey. Waking up at 7:00 am, just before sunrise and walking up the steps to attend the morning service is one of the beautiful moments that you can experience staying here.

Here's the dilemma. Mont St. Michel is truly a unique place on this planet. It's setting, history and importance are unquestioned, and it should be a must-see on every French traveler's itinerary. Conversely, the Mont itself is horribly overcrowded by tourists; the accommodations on the Mont are lackluster (Vieille Auberge is no exception); the food is beyond subpar; and, everything... More

Staying the night inside the walls of Mont Saint Michel is one of a kind experience! If you consider travelling to Mont Saint Michel, you should spend one night in one of the few hotels inside the walls. This hotel is quite simple. We got a room with good view and nice facilities. You have to access the restaurant (same... More

My wife and I stayed at La Vieille Auberge in early July and expected a romantic night on what is a beautiful island. However, our experience with La Vieille Auberge was a nightmare from start to finish. First, the parking situation is terrible. The parking lot is approximately 2 miles from the Mont and you have to either walk or... More

After Paris I went to this hotel. It was cheap, but I was expecting something better. The staff was nice and helping. It is always à pleasure to visit the Mont Saint Michel We have been woke up by à dog in the middle of the night, which is never good

The room's size didn't match the pictures displayed on the website at all, but everything was clean and comfortable. We were awaken around 5 AM by people working in the Auberge, thought - my guess is that they took advantage of the early hour, and the main street's emptiness, to carry big amount of bottles. This happened the two nights... More
