We (myself, spouse and another couple) spent a night at this hotel the week of Apr 23, and overall had a very nice stay. One enters through a storefront like door into the ground level bar, and then directed to the next level where reception is. Our room was up another flight of stairs, and overlooking the bay towards the mainland. The room was adequate in size, clean, and had a decent mattress. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of hot water. The windows are double paned and the room was quiet. Sound insulation between rooms was also OK- couple next door was coughing a lot but could not hear it too loudly (or they took cough medicine)- have been in much worse, and also better. The restaurant food was fair at best - chicken was overcooked, and I had the cod which also was overcooked. But the mussels were decent. Remember that this rock has a multitude of overpriced, tourist restaurants, so cannot speak to comparison to the others. The price is very reasonable, and a "continental" breakfast is 9 euros. The parking - make sure you tell them at the parking lot cashier that you are staying overnight so that they put you in the closer lot that is NOT flooded by the tide. And you will have to carry or roll your bags about 100 meters over the flat parking to the entry of the Mont, then another 100 meters or so up the ascending tourist street to get to the hotel. We arrived in the mid afternoon, spending the rest of the afternoon exploring the Abbey (worth it, but hey, not much else to do on the Mont), then had dinner. My friends and I are photographers, so we ventured out around sunset and again at sunrise to the causeway for photos. After around 5 PM, and before around 9AM, you have the Mont to yourself. The tour bus loads of tourists are gone between those hours.
