Hotel Ariane
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Pontorson
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We arrived to the hotel early about 9:30 am the front desk person yell at us saying check in is at 4pm, he was disgruntled, short tempered and very unhelpful... We know that is not check-in time; we have not spoken other than can we leave our luggage. He told us to leave it there in the lobby; he did not give us a receipt for our luggage; it was just sitting there on the side where anyone could go in and take it. Safety was my first concern...Anyway, we left it but removed our entire valuable & took it with us to the tour...We took the bus to Mont Saint-Michel. We then come back and check-in at 6pm. He gave us the room next to the train track room 214. We could not sleep all night. Unfortunately we are booked for 2 nights so we try to grin & bare it. There was no soap in the room, no tissue box, just a sample bottle of shampoo. Our breakfast is not included the price was outrageous $118 euros a night. We realize as we walk around the corner there were 6 others hotel with rates of $40 euros per night for two people. The only good thing about this hotel is it is next to the train station. Even that I was willing to walk two block to stay somewhere else. My husband a very easy going person never complaint when we travel but he agree that this is the worse hotel service. The people in the room next door were loud the wall are very thin. There are no showers just a bath tub, because there was no A/C it was hot and uncomfortable. There is a very moldy smell in the room and the hallways are dark with dim lights.
My Travel Agent know now not to use this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Don't stay here at all. Your best bet is to stay in Caen and take in Mont Saint- Michel as a day...

We were 14 cyclist who stayed here, the staff are so helpful especially the lady on reception who booked a taxi for us.
The rooms are comfortable , to have tea facilities in the room was very nice , we asked at the bar for milk and more T bags , breakfast was adequate ..

Room Tip: Room 301 ok..

Wearrived just before the reception was closing, after having read reviws. Met by friendly receptionist, though with poor english. Rooms were ok. Centrally located in Pontorson. Parked in the street outside for free. Opted for the 9Euro breakfast, which had a great selection of bread and croissants and yoghurt, orange juice and good, strong coffee. Misses fresh fruit and vegetables, but overall it was worth it. Could stay again.

Stayed on a special offer for 2 nights included breakfast and parking. Welcome and service was perfect we were the only guests as this was the off season, Breakfast was more then what we required typical continental cold ham, bread basket with very tasty croissants and great coffee. Rooms were very attractive we had room 210, I personaly liked the painting on the wall of the semi nude women:), Bathroom was with a full bath. Flat screen plenty of stations in french and english, free wifi. Coffee and tea in the room. Its about a 10 minute ride to Mt st michel with the car from the hotel. There is a bus service but we didnt use it from the train station just acrosst the street from the Hotel Ariane. Its location is ideal for a visit to normandy as well as Brittany. I was impressed that the hotel remained open for just 2 guests and offered full service the whole stay. Well worth the stay

Room Tip: The bed we had was excellent. room 210
