“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

It was an ancient lodging for carriages and it has been renewed with attention to all the details. Very comfortable room and garden. The breakfast was good too.

It's a in good position to explore the Mont Saint Michael area. It's easy to park.

In a town with seemingly little reason for visiting, it was a real treat to discover this 'Logis de France' hotel. Our room was somewhat loudly decorated with orange wallpaper, but it was perfectly clean, everything worked and the bed had an apparently new mattress.
All the staff were not only friendly but go out of their way to be helpful and to 'be of service'. In my experience this sort of behaviour speaks of good management and, sure enough, the proprietor/owner is ever present. He is there during breakfast as well as dinner, he is a constant presence in and around reception and is the first to assist in any case of need. He has, more importantly, instilled this same work ethic in his key staff.
The food at dinner was of the highest quality and far in excess of what one might expect in such a place. There were 3 set menus ranging from Euro 28 to Euro 56 and a cheese course was included in all. The dessert menu also was common for all 3 set meals and was of a very high standard.
If you're getting the car ferry to or from Cherbourg make sure this is your first/last night's stay. It is an easy 2 to 3 hour drive to/from the ferry port and well worth it. The rooms are reasonably priced and the food is delicious

Room Tip: a lot of the rooms open onto a small but tranquil garden

positives: a nice garden, quiet place, the entrance bar, the restaurant, with good food, somewhat expensive, just taste an eye-watering assorted dessert, magnifique. 7/10 overall. Negatives no air cond, no english-speaking news channels on tv, parking free at Hotel but needs proper pavement, not gravel, especially for our shoes. Slow Wifi and it was unavailable on morning of departure. Low shower water pressure.

Room Tip: first floor better isolated from garden corridor

This appeared to be a very old building, as least a century or two, with the feel of an old French inn. The room was comfortable, apparently without air conditioning, but we opened our window and it was generally quiet at night. The hotel has a very nice landscaped courtyard, which some of the rooms face; it would be worthwhile to ask for one of these. Off street parking was private and gated with good access. Breakfast costs extra and is a traditional continental style, but it is served in a wonderfully quaint dining room that also serves as a pubic restaurant during supper time. The staff was very attentive and extremely helpful, making us feel welcome after a long day on the road. The only difficulty we experienced was finding it. It is in the center of town at the top of this hill immediately adjacent to Patton Square, with its huge statue of General Patton. Google Maps did a very poor job of pinpointing it on a one way street at the northwest corner of the roundabout, causing us to drive around for 45 minutes or so. But it is located in a nice downtown area with lots of shops and restaurants.

We had two night at this unique little hotel, and it was extremely comfortable. We were on the bottom floor of the new wing, able to walk out into the pretty little garden. Our room was spacious and yet cosy, and the bathroom and separate toilet arrangement was ideal. In addition, there is a large dining room for meals in the main (older) part of the hotel - extremely cheaply priced - and big breakfasts (served in the dining room) are included in the room rate. Parking is easy and within the grounds of the hotel. All staff were particularly helpful and pleasant, and they work well as a team to provide continuous good service.

Last year we were searching Chowhound for a place for dinner after we spent the day at Mont-St-Michel. The restaurant was so fantastic and reasonably priced that instead of driving to our already booked hotel, we canceled and stayed the night there as well! This year, we returned and had another great experience. We had a small problem with our room and the owner took care of it promptly. Great service, historical spot, and great waitress, Christiane.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the renovated wing.

Stayed for one night at this lovely, well presented hotel. We were given he last room available and can see why, as the hotel is set in immaculate gardens that are clearly lovingly tendered on a regular if not daily basis. The front of the hotel looks like any other property on the street but go through to the rear and you see the gardens and chalet type buildings that make up the majority of the rooms. All are immaculately painted and decorated to a high standard. Our room, room 9 was very spacious and the adjoining bathroom was also a room in itself with a massive corner shower.
Free and secure on site parking is available which is a bonus in France. The main town of Avranches is a short five minute walk from the hotel.
All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would certainly use it again.
