Bottom Line

Le Relais du Roy is a mid-range hotel on Le Couesnon River that's a three-minute drive south of Mont Saint-Michel. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance and the on-site restaurant serves local French-style meals all day long. Rooms are mostly small, and the simple traditional decor is slightly dated, but some have beautiful views and balconies. Bathrooms are a bit more stylish and include basic amenities. Room service is available but only during certain hours, and the property has no elevators or air-conditioning.

Oyster Hotel Review

Le Relais du Roy

Scene

A mid-range hotel on the river with both modern and outdated elements

Dated, blue sponge-painted wallpaper and older light-wood furnishings adorn the large lobby and set the tone for the hotel. A slightly updated seating area flanks an out-of-place tree along with an angelic statue and tourist information. Striped purple wallpaper in the dim hallways looks washed out and modern tan carpets don’t add much to spruce up the design. The on-site restaurant is somewhat updated with contemporary curtains, light fixtures, and chairs, but the old flooring strongly detracts from the pleasant decorations. Antique wood beams, stonework, and a fireplace add classic charm while the restaurant’s outdoor area has standard tables and chairs. La Relais does not have air-conditioning or an elevator, but it's still more modern than some of the other hotels in the area.

Location

On Le Couesnon River with free shuttle to Mont Saint-Michel

Le Relais is on Le Couesnon River, with the small island of Le Mont Saint-Michel a three-minute drive north; getting to Alligator Bay to the south takes the same amount of time. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance and there’s free shuttle service to the island within the immediate vicinity. St. Gervais Basilica, Mont-Dol, and Dol Cathedral are all about a 25-minute drive from the property. A rental car is necessary if you plan on seeing any sights beyond Mont Saint-Michel attractions.

Rooms

Simple rooms with traditional style

The overall design is simple and traditional, with red carpets, gray damask wallpaper, and blond-wood furniture being the norm. Most guest units lack square footage and many guests remark that moving around the beds is tight. Each room has a coffeemaker, flat-screen TV, hairdryer, and daily newspaper, and there are reading lights attached to the headboard. Some of the rooms have wonderful views of the island and river from their balconies while others suffer loud street noise. Fans are available in the summertime, and bathrooms include a few amenities and slightly updated tile work.
