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 right outside the window...

Charming room with a little foyer (double door entry) right from the cobbled walkway; felt very apropos for being at Mont-St-Michel. Average breakfast and a little pricey, but we were charmed. Worked very well for us. Stayed 2 nights.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view ... we asked but ....

The hotel itself is a nice one with a bit of character and nice roooms. The problem is that at the price you pay to stay on the island puts it into a category that it is not. On that basis i have tried to ignore the pricing as all the hotels are at a premium. Actually staying on the island and seeing the place when its quieter is a really nice experience and i would recommend that. As i say nice room and bathroom and it was clean and well appointed. We paid for the half board and were disappointed that when it came to dinner we were offered a table in the less formal restaurant that has kids running around and serving ice creams across the counter into the street - not the romantic meal we had envisaged. The explanation was that the more formal restaurant was closed as no waiting staff were available. We ended up finding a restaurant elsewhere and by-passed the half board option. Breakfast was good though. Only other gripe was that the free wi-fi could not be accessed and we saw at least three other people complaining about the same thing and there was no resolution.
