Mont St Michel and Bayeux B&B or Hotel Suggestions

Does anyone have suggestions for B&b or hotels near Mont St Michel and also in Bayeux and then later in our trip Honfleur. We have Rick's book.

Bayeux: Hotel Tardiff Mont Saint Michel: Mere Poulard (expensive) Honfleur: Le Cheval Blanc I've used them all more than once. To save bucks, there are ETAPs at Honfleur and Bayeux. I think the closest ones to MSM are Granville and St Malo. I've never stayed at the one in Granville, but they're all identical.

In Bayeux, try the B&B Aggarthi. It's near the Tapestry and the city center.

Jeff, You might have a look at This Hotel in Bayeux. It's in a nice central location, which is the meeting point for some of the D-Day tours. They also provide a Shuttle to Mont St. Michel.

Mont St Michel hotels are expensive. We stayed at Hotel le Mouton Blanc. The room was small, clean, and quaint. It was located across the "street" from where you check in and was up a few stairs. We stayed on the first floor of that building. It's neat to be there at night.

We really like Hotel D'Argouges in Bayeux.

I think the name of the place where I stayed on Mont St. Michel was Auberge du St. Pierre, or something like that. The rooms were pretty small, but the price was reasonable. Most of the restaurants and hotels on the island seem pretty interchangeable.

We can't help with MSM for Honfleur we stayed at La Liniere which is next to one of Rick Steves recommendations : Hotel Monet. La Liniere was once part of the Monet family estate. There is off street parking. Bayeux: we used Hotel de La Sainte Croix. near Place St Patrice. It had to be one of the largest hotel rooms we have ever had. There is off street parking here as well.

La Terasse Poulard is less expensive than La Mere Poulard, owned by same family, but it is higher up the isle, so you will be climbing a lot of steps to get there.

Thanks to all for the info, I had not planned on staying on the Isle but after your info it sounds like the thing to do. Have always found that after the tours leave and later as it gets dark many of these tourist place are very enjoyable.

My husband, 2 adult children and I stayed at the youth hostel in Bayeaux and loved it. The couple running it were quirky and sweet. The breakfast was amazing. Centrally located to everything, washing machine, kitchen, all in a medieval home.

Hotel Mogador in Bayeux. In Rick's book I believe. Nice host.

Here's another vote for staying on MSM. It's a totally different place in the evening after the crowds have left. We have stayed on the Mont twice. Last time we timed our trip so we would be there for high tide in the evening. It was awesome! We stayed at Auberge Saint Pierre in a family room, and were quite pleased.

How easy is it to transport luggage to Mont St. Michel. Also, what impact will the closing of the causeway have on this?

Ok, I'll bite: Why is the causeway going to be closed? And, hauling your luggage from the parking lot or the bus drop off will depend on how much you packed and where your hotel is as the main road leads uphill on your way in. As I recall it is cobblestoned streets and smoother ( tho crowded with postcard displays) sidewalks. I dimly remember suitcases could be dropped off nearer than 2 of the parking lots- not sure I saw any valets or bellboys.

The causeway is being closed by tree-huggers in the departmental guvmint on account of the bay is getting silted up on account the causeway won't let it flush. The parking lot at the mont end of the causeway is probably closed by now. It's being relocated to the mainland end. Shuttle service is going to be used to get to the hill. Sometime this year they're supposed to have a pedestrian footbridge built. After that, I've forgotten, but you can bet all the hotels on the island are going to have some way to get people's junk out there. You'd obviously still have to hump your stuff from the gate up the street to everwhere the hotel is.
