Auberge Saint Pierre
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Mont-Saint-Michel
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Our room looked like it was out of a storybook. It was all just like a dream! I felt like a medieval princess in my fortress. The room was so nicely decorated, with a great view. The staff were friendly and helpful, they held our bags for us in a safe room after check out so we could explore the mont a little more. We had dinner at the restaurant which was very quaint and romantic, although our waiter spoke very little English. Staying overnight on le Mont-St-Michel is such a neat experience, I highly recommend it. You feel as though you have the little town all to yourself. Definitely not-to-be-missed if you visit northern/central France.

I gather by far the majority of visitors do not stay the night on the mont. Big mistake! it was so incredibly cool! we are a family of four (two teens ages 13 and 15). we spent 10 days traveling France in March 2013. we stayed one night at the auberge, in a quad, and had the mont to ourselves. it felt that way. we literally spent the dark hours running around ramparts, all...alone...no tourists. well barely any tourists. at least not running around the ramparts and 800 year old walls. we imagined being back in the middle ages -- it was not hard to do. my teens loved it; so did I and my husband. regarding the auberge, we were very impressed with the quad room we had -- which is separate from main hotel, up a little tiny street, behind little hobbit doors. there were four beds, twin, all together, brand new WC closet, separate shower room wiht a full bath tub (rare, not just a shower). and it was all clearly redone recently. the fabrics were lovely and rich; colors on the wall super; the woodwork seemed very old; the door looked about 600 years old. all very great to get us in the mood for the mont. if you look out a tiny high window, you can see the ocean over the walls. there were modern conveniences, including a mini fridge, which I have never seen in a france small b&b or hotel in our price range, at least not the quality we normally stay. we stayed one night on the mont. yes, it was our priciest hotel stay by far out of our entire 10 nights including paris. but one night, so splurge! both my kids said their night on the mont was a highlight of our ten day tour through france. we were there over easter week, and I expected terrible crowds. nope, no terrible crowds. healthy crowds, not terrible. by 4:30 pm, the day trippers filed out, school group by school group, and we just smiled and got ready to enjoy the solitude. the negative about the mont -- the food. ugh. all seems the same -- literally all restaurants seem to share an identical memu. sort of like disney. there are no real true choices of food on the mont, and the beers and hot chocolate are very pricey. what can you do -- captive. but putting that aside, and getting off the main tourist drag, it was a delight. we arrived by 10 a.m., left our suit case in auberge lobby, walked around until 1 pm, checked into our room, had a fabulous and very quiet night sleep.

Note -- do NOT drive a car here. all the posts that say a car is necessary to tour this part of france-- WRONG! we never rent a car -- hate renting cars. we made our way all over normady and the mont, no car. we trained from bayeux direct to Pontorson. instead of waiting for the bus, we cabbed up to the car park area, 16 euros only. then we walked the one mile or so to the mont, because the walk up was stunning. why take the minibus when you can slowly enjoy that great view on foot? then we learned from the very very nice folks at the car park/information center that the next day, we could catch the bus, directly at the mont, to the train station, for 2 euros per head. it was easy as pie. we bused back to the train station the next morning, about 9:15 a.m bus, which picked us up literally where you exit through the wall of the mont. then hopped the train back to bayeux. the entire trip was 24 hours, so worth it. I saw a lot of headaches going on with drivers, not being able to figure out parking/bus lanes/this and that. as we watched the cars buzz about in frustrated circles, we leaned back on our very clean and comfy bus (also very uncrowded) and patted ourselves on the back :-) forget a car, keep your blood pressure low/ enjoy the stunning views.

final advice -- everyone is right about luggage at the mont -- dont take it -- take a small day back if possible. we left our one big piece back in bayeux, and all had a small day pack. that made a world of difference.

Room Tip: loved the quad -- up the mont a bit, not part of the main hotel

We couldn't fault the Auberge during our one night stay. The room quality is four star, and unless you have loads of luggage the small room isn't a bother. Nice feature was the hotel back entrance onto the rampart wall, a better way of exiting due to the tourist crowds in the main street onto which the hotel front door opens. We skipped the expensive breakfast and ate at another restaurant which offered much tastier food. Don't let anyone dissuade you about staying on the island due to expensive hotels - it's worth every penny for the night ambience.

Room Tip: First floor room takes you directly out the back onto the rampart wall.

When we were first researching hotels on or nearby Mont St Michel on Tripadvisor, the comments on Auberge St Pierre had a consistent theme of small rooms and snooty staff. We really wanted to stay on island, so took a chance. Well the small rooms rap was exactly on target, but the snooty staff rap was not. As predicted, the room was up the cobblestone street, and then up some stone steps, and finally to our room. The entry door required bending down to avoid hitting my head. The bath was modern, small, but perfectly functional. The room was so small you almost had to walk past the bed going sideways. The photo makes the room look larger than it is. It was magical being on the island at night when no one else is there, so we didn't care. See other photos. Our room also had a good sized terrace, but that did not help as the weather was rainy.

TIP - You cannot park on the causeway next to the island. Parking is in lots a mile or so down the road. If you are staying on the island, you can stay in the lots closest to the island. There is a code to get in. Call the hotel before your arrival to get the code.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My husband and I brought my parents here for their inaugural visit to France. We had two quaint little rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms, though tiny, were nicely decorated. The bathroom was very small typical of France, but very clean. Be prepared to park a good ways off site. We stayed here in 2004 and were able to park right at the entrance to the mont. You have to take a shuttle to the entrance, so pack lightly and hide your personal belongings in your vehicle. There are no elevators, so again pack lightly. The restaurant attached was very good too. The staff was very friendly and held our luggage for us while we went to visit the Abbey after check out. They are currently working on the bridge so the water/tides are dammed. I was a little disappointed to not see the tides come in, this time. It is quite a sight. As for the hotel, no complaints! Would come again for sure!

I have always wanted to visit Mont St Michel. And when we finally got that chance, staying on the island was the perfect way to experience it. The Auberge was very friendly and we stayed in Chapeu Blanc. That seems to be the best way to experience because you are up and away from the crowds and lights. Would do it again, when we can afford it.
Definitely pack light or combine luggage for that night. Pulling luggage is not really feasible.

We spent 1 night here on our honeymoon and it was totally worth it. The isle is so magical when the majority of tourists have left. The hotel was charming and completely romantic. The staff was also really helpful when we had trouble with the electricity. Turns out a fuse was blown and they had it fixed right away.
