눉La Mere Poulard is a tourist trap. I have stayed at 8 hotels on this trip, many of which charged between half and twp thirds the price that this one does. They had far better service, better amenities, and a nicer breakfast. Arriving here was bewildering. Our GPS took us to a parking lot from which there was a shuttle to Mont-St-Michel. I was not prepared for this. There were no signs to tell us where we were going and taking the bus meant we had to leave many of our belongings in the car overnight. Not very reassuring! There was no one at the reception desk to greet us; they were having a smoke and were gone about ten minutes. (Keep in mind that guests who check out of their rooms are invited to leave their bags at this same unguarded reception desk!) The walk to our room with one heavy rolling carry-on was meandering and involved innumerable stairs. There is no elevator. The waitress in the restaurant ignored us, so after 15 minutes without a greeting or water we left. We never were able to connect to the internet even though I was told how easy it was to do so twice. The polyfill duvet was too hot for the season. I had the sense that La Mere Poulard is just a business, not a house of hospitality, which is what it should be.
눇The room was dark and quiet. I awoke to the sound of bells ringing in the morning, which was lovely. The site was readily accessible via the hotel, but the tours can easily be accomplished in half a day, so this is unnecessary.
