“Good Place to Stay In Mont St Michel”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Things we liked:
* Front desk staff were good, if a bit busy and maybe understaffed
* Front desk staff spoke English very well
* La Mere Poulard is at the bottom of the Mont, so you don't have to climb uphill as far with your luggage.
* Our room was good-sized and clean
* The wifi in our room was excellent
* The included breakfast was tasty.
* Attached bathroom was large and functional.

What we didn't like:
* Our room had not much of a view. I'm guessing you can improve this, but there was not an opportunity in our case.
* No elevator (true of all the hotels on the Mont) and no staff to carry luggage up the stairs. It was quite a workout for me!

In summary, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, but I would pack lighter, and arrange for a room with a view.

Room Tip: Arrange for a room with a view.

The Auberge de La Mère Poulard is a place steeped in history that everyone should try at least once in their lives. Room prices are a little high, but you are paying for a world class reputation. Staff offer a warm welcome and the standard of service will not disappoint clients who are looking for this type of establishment.

The room Mère Poulard where we spent two magical nights is an excellent value for money. The view of the gardens and the Abbey of Mont Saint Michel is very nice. The decor is very neat. The bedding is comfortable.

La Mere Poulard was totally unacceptable. Front desk person did not understand the simplest questions when asked in English language. The small room has minimal space for hanging clothes. Bahroom lighting is so dim it is almost impossible to apply make-up when using the mirror. Room lighting is too dim to work or read and there is no air conditioning available if the weather is warm as it was during our stay. The room is stuffy with no air movement. We opened the windows but the flies invaded and we spent the whole evening swatting flies. So the option was to close the windows and swelter. Stay elsewhere, perhaps off site if you visit Mont Saint Michele. Steep stairs led to our room with no one to help with our luggage.

What I like about this restaurant is that the menu changes regularly. We have each been with my partner for a walk to the Mont Saint Michel and never miss the opportunity to lunch in a restaurant Mère Poulard. The food is excellent and refined. There's something for everyone, all of which enjoy the small and big appetites.

We wanted to stay near by Mont Saint Michel and therefore chose the most typical hotel La Mere Poulard. Excellent choice for a spacious suite, which had a glorious view, was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. I'm not surprised that so many personalities are at least one day rendered at La Mère Poulard. Luxury and awesome stay guaranteed!

The speciality giant omelettes that the hotel restaurant is renowned for, were both delicious and very good value for money. The warm and cozy piano bar offered a unique view over the bay of Mont Saint Michel and guaranteed many unforgettable evenings. We loved the hotel shop because it allowed you to recreate your dining experience once back at home, by offering sales of gourmet products, cooking brass tableware and cookbooks.

Mont Saint Michel itself was quite breathtaking, especially early mornings and late evenings when the crowds had dispersed and as this hotel was the first hotel you could see after entering the Mont, the location was ideal. I would highly recommend La Mere Poulard, especially if you require a traditional and historic experience.

Room Tip: If you find climbing stairs difficult, opt for a room on the lower floors, as this hotel did not hav...

A very nice and well placed at the entrance of the Mont Saint Michel hotel. Museums and shops nearby. Clean and comfortable rooms. A view of the bay of Mont unbeatable. An attentive staff. Quality food in the ground floor restaurant.
