We stayed at Altos Hotel in Avrances for 2 nights while visiting Normandy and Mont St Michel. It is a great location - just a few kms from the hotel, we rounded a corner at the top of the hill at the edge of Avranches, and we could see Mont St Michel in the distance - it was a spectacuar sight, almost like a mirage. The hotel seems to be an older establishment with a somewhat-recent overhaul and contemporary decor. We booked a family room for 4, but were nicely surprised to have 2 separate rooms. The breakfast was good (additional cost). We had a wonderful dinner at the restaurant next door; we weren't expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised. Be advised that Avranche is a sleepy little town. The one thing that was a but disquieting (but perfectly understandable) was that the hall lights in the hotel were on motion sensors, which means when you got off the elevator or came to the top of the stairs, it was dark (its a small hotel, not a lot of activity or motion). The eco-minded side of me appreciates this energy saving idea, but the paranoid side of me wonders what may be lurking in teh dark.

We stayed here the night before going to Mont St. Michele. The lobby looks really contempory but when you get to your room it's scary. Very dirty. We checked the beds for bugs...didn't see anything but the whole night I wondered. The carpet had all sorts of stains and the bathroom was horrible. I almost took a shower with socks on it was so bad. The shower head wasn't attached to the wall so my husband had to hold it up while I washed out my hair. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. The did have a breakfast that was comparable with most of the places we've stayed so I'd say that was a plus but seriously wouldn't stay there again for the life of me. Would rather sleep in the car.

We booked this hotel at the last minute from Normandy. First of all, don't miss Avaranches - it is so picturesque, quaint and full of history. A really lovely town. The hotel was just fine - it was clean, the rooms were not too small (though that odd two-room bathroom set up). The staff were what made the stay great - they were so pleasant and helpful, and the included breakfast, though not extensive, was tasty. This hotel is only rated as a two star but it's one of those ones that you get a good deal on and ends up being a really pleasant surprise. Definite value for money here!

a clean and pleasant hotel with friendly staff and fair sized rooms. breakfast was included in our stay and the staff ensure you are never without coffee, croissants etc. free parking is provided and there is no 'curfew' to come in whenever you want. the bar shut a little earlier than we would have liked (2230) which although not a major aspect of the hotel, we found ourselves getting back quite late from exploring normandy so a nice glass of 'vin rouge' would have been great when we got in! i would say this hotel is great for 1 or 2 nights but no more and mainly if you are interested in going to mont st michel. the other main places of interest are bit of a drive away so you are not really in the heart of things here. we felt it was a bit pricey for what we got and from what else was on offer in the area(75 euros per night which was suppsed to be a cheao deal but is actually the advertised price). our shower flooded on the first day which seemed to be a design flaw-if you aim it towards the wall and not on max power its fine!!. all in all not a bad little hotel.

  • Liked — attentiveness of staff at breakfeast
  • Disliked — price, location (would only recommend to those with cars as not much in direct vicinity)

Reviewed 29 October 2004

We stayed here one night on our way to Mont-St.-Michel. We arrived in town about an hour before checking in because we got lost and couldn't find the hotel. The driving instructions and map we found on the Internet for this hotel were really poor. The hotel is very unmemorable. Nothing distinctive to recommend it - looks like a chain operation - very ordinary and, in fact, a touch on the rundown side. It's clean, but there are set-in stains on the carpet and the wallpaper is peeling, at places along on the walls. It was raining and cold while we were there and we couldn't get the radiator to work - despite instructions from the desk clerk. So we froze that night. On the plus side - the restaurant directly next door to the hotel (there's an entrance through the lobby), was exceptional. The night we ate there, it was extremely crowded by locals, not tourists. We were the only English-speaking people there. The food was superb - the best meal I ate in 10 days spent in France. And very reasonably priced.
