I booked this hotel because I wanted to stay on Le Mont Saint Michel for the night and it was quite affordable. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant, even with a 2.5 power outage over most of Le Mont that evening. It made it feel even more authentic.
I had one of the rooms up the street from the main hotel. It was clean and quite large...it had a double bed and a single. There are 2 rooms in this section and both look out over the narrow main street. Probably because it was November and it was not overly crowded, it was very quiet...about 7am when they started bring supplies up the street, over the cobblestone using some kind of cart/dolly with metal wheels. There was no sleeping in with that kind of noise and the windows were closed and the curtains pulled. I'm not complaining, just putting it out there. Personally, I was grateful for the wake up call it provided. It got me out of bed and into the vacant streets!
I mentioned the blackout...this is a small hotel and one thing the staff could have done during the blackout would have been to check on their guests. Most tourists (I think) don't travel with a flashlight. It would have been nice to have someone from the hotel check and see if everything was OK. You can maybe imagine just how dark it was on those narrow streets!
The blackout happened over dinner time and again, the hotel staff were not engaged in their guests welfare. I checked in at the front desk to see if their kitchen was open and they said probably not and made no effort to even suggest something else. Another restaurant without power just a couple of doors down were serving meals, albeit by candlelight and I don't know the menu they provided but at least they tried.
I get that power outages don't happen too often but in a place like MSM where it is so isolated, perhaps a plan to look after their guests would be something to consider when these events happen.
