The hotel is very close to Le Mont Saint Michel. It is enclosed in a private complex with secure parking spaces and lots of restaurants nearby.
The location is extremely practical:
you can walk to the Mont St Michel via a little path (30 minutes) or use the free shuttle service which runs all day long every 15 minutes (pick up point near the Relais Saint Michel, 3 minutes walk from the Mercure hotel)
Our room was looking to the back of the hotel. It was very clean, in immaculate condition, spacious and comfortable. the toilets were a bit small with a sliding door. Flat TV screen, kettle, phone and Wi-Fi available.
The staff were kind and friendly.
We were just able to get a view over the Mont St Michel when stretching above the window. That being said, in this complex no hotel has a full view over the Merveille apart from "Le Relais Saint Michel".
It should not put you off though, because the Mercure's location is an ideal base to visit the Mont St Michel.
If you are tempted by a stay on the Mont St Michel Island I would strongly advise you to refrain from it. The Mont St Michel is very tiny, so all the rooms you will find there are charming but very small. You would have to pay for an expensive parking space during your stay and carry your luggages there (no cars allowed). The streets are very narrow and the island is full of tourists during the daytime. So the only time when the restaurants and hotels can empty their rubbish and replenish their stock is at night: you will endure a very noisy night and pay a very high price for it. It is much wiser and much more enjoyable to stay in a hotel located in the complex mentioned above. This way, you will have the best of both worlds: the amazing scenery of the Mont St Michel at a stone throw, and a peaceful night of sleep at an affordable price.
