If you are after a Five Star, all inclusive hotel then look somewhere else...entirely! However, if you are after one remarkable stay in a truly breathtaking place then who really cares for one night as long as it's clean, has lovely hot showers and very comfortable beds!!!??? We arrived (after a frustrating time trying to find our overnight parking lot... More

We were two senior couples who stayed here one night. One of the good things was that we had to come quite long into the main street to find this hotel. In other words we were well informed about a lot of what Le Mont Saint Michel had to offer when we arrived the hotel. We got rooms in the... More

This was my second time to visit the Mont Saint Michel. This time I visited with my sisters and stayed at La Vielle Auberge. Booked a triple room for a night and we were given a room at their annex which was a few steps up a hill. The room was clean and the space was good enough for 3... More

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
