Our room in the Terraces Poulard didn't even vaguely resemble the photos on their website! No nice vistas over the water and no stylish, comfortable room! More 3rd-rate motel, but up many flights of stairs. Small, pokey room which last saw maintenance and decoration in the 80's.
And way expensive!
However, and it is a big one, staying on the island is the only way to go. After the buses have departed, the place ceases to feel like Disneyland and becomes a magic island. Mont St Michel is a victim of it's own success. During the day it is hell on a stick, with surging crowds up the narrow medieval street and in the overpriced coffee shops and souvenir shops.
After hours is is a sublime remnant of a lost age.
The hotels are disgustingly bad value but the island at night is worth being ripped-off over!
