Experience of a lifetime on Mont Saint Michel
Posted Jul 8, 2016
Spending a night on Mont Saint Michel was a bucket list item for my husband and me. We were traveling with our 12-year-old son, and we could not have been more thrilled with our stay. Overall, check-in was easy. We appreciated having the parking code in advance, as it was easy to park our rental car in the reserved parking lot and take the free shuttle to the Mont. We had paid in advance to include the breakfast buffet with our stay, but the staff did not have record of this. We showed them our reservation confirmation, and they made the necessary notes on our account. We did not realize the room would be located away from the hotel's main office, which meant walking a bit further up the Mont, but it was not an issue. The room was basic, but clean, and the location was excellent. We could open our windows and see and hear the sound of the seagulls and the visitors. Once we closed the window, the room was quiet and peaceful, everything we needed. The morning breakfast buffet was worth the price. While it was not extravagant, it was tasty. We had everything we could want, including delicious coffee. We highly recommend staying a night on Mont Saint Michel. You will never forget the experience of seeing the tide come in. Take a walk along the ramparts at night, when the Mont is illuminated. It is truly a breathtaking experience, and Le Mouton Blanc provides a clean, comfortable place, centrally located, from which to base your stay. We definitely hope to return.
