We drove out from Paris and stayed here overnight so we could get some evening photos of Mont St. Michel and then get there the following morning before the hordes of tourist busses showed up.
We were warmly welcomed and pleased with the tidyness and cleanliness of our room. Having read the reviews on this site, I was interested in seeing how the Ariane and Vauban hotels were related... it seems the Vauban is the older building and the Ariane the newer one, however they both share a reception/dining area. Our room was clearly of new construction, and although the railway tracks do run outside, the windows were quite soundproof and this did not present a problem during our stay.
Perhaps the only odd thing was that for new construction, the bath... although having a detachable shower head, didn't have any enclosure for showering... so although I prefer showers I ended up having a bath rather than spraying water all over the bathroom. (And yeah, I know some bathrooms are built for this, and have a floor drain, etc. but that didn't seem to be the case in this room at least.)
Parking was free and conveniently located next to the hotel.
The room was a bit bigger than in the "city" hotels and was very well maintained.
We had a good stay and would stay here again.
