Ibis Avranches Baie du Mont Saint Michel
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Hotel is poor value for money when compared to the B&B hotel in Avranches. I ate in the Ibis restaurant, waited an hour for a steak and when it was brought to the table it was over cooked. I didn't think it would difficult to cook a steak. They offered to charge me for the buffet starter in view of their error but that was 14 euros. The wait and poor quality spoilt my meal and enjoyment. The seafood on the buffet wasn't very fresh and the croissants in the morning were processed, factory croissants. Food was over priced and poor quality. I paid 140 euros for a double room and dinner that was worse than in a fast food joint. Given Ibis is part of the Accor chain, with its Head Office in Paris, food as bad as this isn't what I'd expect. The receptionist made no apology at all. I travel regularly in France and always pass Avranches. I'll be staying at the B&B hotel next time and go out for dinner in a proper restaurant.

We stayed here at the end of June and I thoroughly recommend it as a stopover hotel or for two or three nights if you want an excellent simple hotel.

The staff were very welcoming, the room perfectly clean, well-equipped for the price. That's not a criticism and I'd rate it far better than many (all?) of the UK equivalent chains of hotels.

The bed was extremely comfortable, the room very well soundproofed, a nice cruise-ship-style module bathroom, again well-equipped and with soaps/shampoo etc.

Breakfast was more than adequate. Decent coffee (albeit from a machine) and the usual selection of croissants, breads, cheeses, ham, yoghurts juice and so on.

All this for sub €80 for two. Perfect.

Probably the best Ibis i have been to, good location handy for Mont St Michel and Avranches Room small but clean and well appointed, pleasant location just of Autoroute. Staff friendly and very helpfull.but not much within walking distance. Nice Restaurant ( open Sunday evening unlike the rest of France which appears to be shut ) Excellent meal at sensible price, well presented, well served, in pleasant room. Breakfast very good with wide selection. Free Wifi also computer avialable in lobby and pool table. Plenty of free parking on site which it shares with F1 hotel, Many other eating options within 10 Mins drive toward The Mont or Avranches, about 2 hours drive from Cherbourg or Caen Ferries, makes an excellent stopover for those long drives to and from the South or a place to dwell for a coiuple of days enjoyng the many attractions of the area between the rain for which Normandy is famous ( apparently it does not rain in Brittany )

You would have thought I would have learnt but no......try and find a hotel that serves food in France on a Sunday evening!! Having tried from Rennes, I finally found the Ibis at Avranche and could not have been more pleased!

The reception and dining room staff were great and put up with my attempts to converse in French ony for them to speak English to other guests more fluent than my French!

The room was more than adequate and the shower the usual Ibis tardis.....but the best was for 2.99 euro there was 24 hour wifi which not ony allowed streaming but fast enough to watch tv in the net.............

The food was much better than say Ibis Coquelles and presented wonderfully.

Very enjoyable and to be recommended!

We were happy to find a hotel that could accommodate 5 people in one room as we are used to booking two rooms (expensive) in most parts of France. Our room was comfortable and clean and had several outlets available for charging our electronic devices. The bathroom had a somewhat unpleasant smell - though it was very clean. The staff was nice and helpful. The location is next to a grocery store and a short drive to Mont St. Michel. Given the cost per night, we recommend this hotel as a good value for the money.

Good overnight ibis location for visiting Mont Saint Michel.
Hotel is clean and staff very supportive. Free hotel parking.
About a easy 15 minute drive to Mt. St. Michel parking. Large shopping mall area within 2 minute drive without going onto highways.
