We spent four nights at La Mere Poulard.
We were left with the powerful impression that it was not just the cows in Normandy being milked.
The fellow at reception (Dion) suffered from terminal disinterest in his clientele.
We had a very pleasant but tired room on the fourth floor accessed by a very narrow and steep staircase.
He declined to assist with our luggage until my wife put her foot down. Also, the ;young American couple in the room next to us, were met with the same disinterest and the fellow steadfastly refused to assist them at all with their luggage. The fellow at reception also avoided eye contact with any of us and it was clear he was not enjoying his job.
The chambermaids worked very hard and diligently to service the rooms and they were magnificent. Their job was not made any easier by the the stained and worn out carpets in our rooms.
The breakfasts (we stayed four nights) were generous and offered a wide variety of fresh foods (apart from tired gelatinous fruit salad).
We found the costs of accommodation and the additional costs of the breakfasts to be excessive, and we would recommend that when prospective travelers staying on Mont St Michel should canvas other options before considering a night or to with this tired old lady who is sadly resting on her laurels.
