“Great hotel, just get the right room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Auberge Saint-Pierre is a lovely quaint hotel in the heart of Le Mont St Michel. It was very easy to find being right on the main road and not far from the entrance to the citadel. The rooms are spotless, the bathrooms new and clean. The staff friendly and helpful.
The restaurant was OK, but it did stay open later than the others on the Mont. It was so nice staying on the Mont as after 8/9pm the day trippers left and the streets were quiet again. During the day it is very busy and crowded. Everything about the hotel was perfect, except that we had a room overlooking the main cobbled road and at 5:30 in the morning two very noisy forklifts rattled up and down the road bringing supplies and taking away the trash. It lasted for about two hours and was quite loud and intrusive. So, my advice is to make sure you get a room on the back side of the hotel away from the road if you are not an early riser.

Room Tip: get a room away from the street

As other reviewers have noted, the main advantage to staying on the mont itself is the chance to get up early and stay late to truly appreciate everything without the crowds. The Auberge Saint-Pierre was great for that. Sometimes I love crowds, and I'm certainly not one of those tourists who seems to get frustrated by the fact that they came to a beautiful spot and some other nice people are actually there as well; however, it is wonderful to have the chance to enjoy the mont when there is a sense of the peace and tranquility of such a majestic place.

We stayed in a family room, which was on the top floor. Just down the hall is a little door and walkway that connects to the main stone wall. The kids loved their stay here. We had heard bad stories about hotels on the mont sending guests to less desirable overflow rooms. This didn't happen to us, although I had also sent an email asking for confirmation that we would be in the main building of the hotel. Our room was exactly as we had asked and this allowed us to have a wonderful stay on the island.

The staff were excellent.

In a country with thousands of fantastic restaurants we did not find any on the mont.

I have also done Mont St. Michel as a daytrip but staying on the mont is a much better experience. Don't forget to wake up as early as possible and take advantage of the early morning peace.

I had braced myself for the worst after reading all the rotten reviews about the hotels and restaurants on the island.

When we checked in, we were brought through a harry potter town full of winding and narrow alleys.

The room was in another building and really not that small or uncomfortable. Despite it being summer, there was a breeze which helped as there was no air con.

Being able to stay on the island overnight was a great once in a life time experience. Go for it!

Tucked away in the middle of the island, this was a great respite after traveling so much to get here. The Mont St Michel website explained the parking and transport well and from reading travel guides we knew to pack light. It was a little difficult to find but staff was friendly and spoke English well. Room was comfortable and clean and view was great!! Totally agree that this is the way to see the island. Arrive after 3, leave before 11. The crowds leave and you watch the tide come in in peace. Food we had was good (at Hotel du Guesclin). We should have paid to have breakfast included as there are no coffee shops or quick meals available in the morning.

We had the sweetest room just under the ceiling with a sea view where we could see the tide come in. Breakfast in the room was free of charge so we had that. The receptionists were always very friendly and ready to help.

There is one really good reason to stay on the Mont and not off-site: You arrive in the afternoon when the hordes are beginning to leave and then you leave the next morning when the hordes return.

For that reason, we chose to stay on the Mont despite Rick Steves' warnings of lousy food and average accomodations. The Auberge St. Pierre was actually much better than we thought. About 100 yards inside the gate, it's one of four "on-Mont" lodgings. The check in staff was delightful and quick. They walked us up to our room and showed us around. We had a duplex room with my wife and I on one level and our two daughters one flight up the narrowest spiral stairway I've ever seen. When we opened the window, we had a stunning view of the Abbey above. Beware though: Our room was warm (no AC) and if you open the window, there is no screen and the noise from the vendors in the early morning as the set up is not insignificant.

The food was, indeed, average and the prix fixe menu was just not anything to write home about. That said, if I were visiting again, I would not hesitate to stay there or recommend it to a friend.

All in all, quite a good little place to stay but my review is unfortunately clouded by a shocking night's sleep in quite literally the worst bed I have ever slept in.

Arriving by car is a little tricky - have to park in a huge car park before you reach the island in an area specifically reserved for hotel guests staying on the island then catch a bus to the base of the mont and walk to the hotel from there. We took just one small bag with a change of clothes and minimal toiletries as we were only staying one night - a brilliant idea I think as the mont is extremely overcrowded with tourists during the day and the streets are very narrow, steep and cobbled with lots of stairs. Travel light!

Check in was quick and simple and we were walked to the door of our room by one of the staff members which was good as we would not have found it on our own! Room was small but comfortable. Unfortunately though it was incredibly noisy, both inside the building (doors banging all night) and people walking in the narrow street directly under our window. There was also a flock of seagulls living on the roof outside our window and I have never known birds that make as much noise ALL NIGHT as these birds. Extremely hard to sleep, what with the neighbors, the birds and the bed from hell. There were also no curtains and one of the wooden shutters would not close so there was a lot of light coming into the room too. The tea and coffee making facilities also didn't work. Breakfast was quite nice, typical continental breakfast, but overpriced at 15 EUR per person.

The mont itself was incredible, the abbey was huge and incredibly well maintained and it was a fantastic experience to stay out on the island and be there when all the tourists head home for the night. We ventured out again at about midnight to see all the buildings lit up and it was amazingly beautiful - got some great photos!

A one off experience which I'm glad we did - just wish the bed had been even half comfortable.

Room Tip: The shocking bed, the broken shutter and the useless kettle were in room 424 - and the seagulls were...
