    « Comfortable Hotel in great, historic location »

    My wife and I stayed for one night on our way to see friends in Brittany, with a quick visit to Mont Saint-Michel en route. The hotel sits right next to the 17th Century bridge across the Selune River, which was used by Pilgrims travelling to Mont Saint-Michel. The lady at check in was very friendly and helpful, sorting us out for dinner at a local pizza restaurant (which was superb). The room was a little small, but very well equipped, clean and functional and suited us for a one night stay. Buffet breakfast was plentiful and varied. Easy parking, just across the road for the Hotel Reception. Ducey is a pretty market town and we would have liked to have spent more time there, but our schedule didn't allow. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Nice place, but the mattresses were totally worn out »

    Nice idea ?a hotel in an old mill. We stayed here for 3 nights to explore Mt. St. Michel (20 min by car) and the opposite coast side at Genets for a hike with views to Mt. St. Michel. We had a room facing the river and the bridge where you come into Ducey when arriving. The room was nice, although furnishing was a bit old, the same with the bathroom, and we found some unpleasant spots here and there on the curtain, on the floor and so on. On top, the bed's mattresses were extremely uncomfortable, seemed to be totally worn out. Good things: location itself, as it is a nice Norman little town and you are right in the middle of it in an old mill building. You can sit on the hotel's garden peninsula, enjoy the fruit trees while watching the water and the old buildings around and having a glass of Cidre. If you like Pizza: go to Pizzeria La Marionette for dinner, located just 5min walk from the Hotel. Excellent Pizzas and delicious salads.

    « Very relaxing stay. »

    Very relaxing stay at the side of a river in a lovely hotel. They even allowed the dog to come sit with us in the restaurant as long as he didn't bother any other guests. There wasn't a lot to do in the town as it was a Sunday but it seemed quaint and typically French. A very satifying stay.

    « Good value short stay hotel. »

    We stayed for 2 nights with main purpose of visiting Mont St Michael. Very clean and comfortable room . Breakfasts were fine, (american buffet style), and the bread was lovely. Excellent coffee as well. This was available at any time which was a real bonus. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. It is ideal for visiting Mont St Michael. The little town of Ducey is very pretty; easy walk into the town for restaurants.

    « Best little hotel I've ever stayed at! »

    I cannot say enough good things about this quaint little hotel! Staff was GREAT! They went out of their way to make our experience wonderful! The food is delicious! The rooms are tad small but have everything you need for your stay.Restrooms very clean and large. The view - WOW!.....If you are in this area, this is the place to visit.

    « Great place to stay »

    Ducey is a wonderful little town. Friendly locals, a few shops and restaurants and a great base to visit mont saint michel and normandy in general. We rented a car in Paris and drove to Normandy. the hotel was fine - good value for the money. We skipped the breakfast and just went for a walk and picked up croissants etc at the bakery up the street. Horses next door in the pasture was a wonderful bonus!.

    « Enchanted place »

    We used this hotel as our base for visits to Mt. St. Michel, St. Malo and Granville for which purpose it is almost ideally located. We also loved the enchanted flair of this old mill turned modern hotel. The friendly staff was very helpful and made our stay a very pleasant one. They offered to sell us tickets for the Mt. St. Michel monastery with (the Mont itself is free) with even a money back guarantee in case we felt too exhausted to make the climb.... The mill and the old bridge area nicely illuminated at night. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was okay. Instead of Individual toiletries there is a wall mounted dispenser above the bath tub. Breakfast was €12 an worth its price. The hotel offers a large free parking lot right across the (narrow) street.

    « Nice hotel, friendly staff »

    Hotel in old mill on the river bank, old from outside, modern inside. Very frindly staff, room were clean nad modern, our had a nice view on the river. We stayed one night on the way to Mount Saint Michel, which is less than 30 minutes drive from hotel. The Ducey vilage is small, some nice houses and cathedrale to see. Free wifi and parking.

    « Romantic »

    Romantic little hotel next to a picturesque bridge. There is no mill to be seen, maybe inside some building. Some guests complained about the loud rapids, but the river was very relaxing for us. In any case, it was too cold to keep the window open, even in June. Maintenance was not the best: cracked mirror, cracked window. Small but adequate breakfast for 12 EUR. Ample free parking across the narrow street. Walking distance to a gourmet restaurant (Auberge Selun) - reservation advised. Great base for visiting Mont St. Michelle.

    « Delightful place, comfortable hotel »

    Really enjoyed Le Moulin - room was compact but adequate, clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and pleasant and breakfast included a good variety. Well located near restaurants, unfortunately the chef was having an operation so no evening meal in the hotel however a choice of alternatives were available within walking distance. Ducey is a delightful village. Would come again - not the cheapest option, but with the £/€ exchange rate nowhere in France is good value.

    « Comfort & Cozy »

    Quaint little hotel in Ducey, ideal if you are visiting Mont Sant Michael and want to stay away from the regular tourist hotel and experience local village life at its best. Comfortable and Cozy rooms and helpful staff make it a pleasant experience overall.

    « Comfortable stay »

    We found our stay here comfortable. The view over the river was lovely and the hotel was a short walk to the main part of town. The room was comfortable and staff very helpful. We had dinner here one of the nights and it was very nice. We would happily stay here again.

    « Great little gem »

    quaint little hotel run by very friendly staff. They explained everything in English and provided excellent instructions. WiFi passed the kids test. Breakfast was very good. I love the little village environment. Good restaurant within walking distance.

    « Comfortable Stopover »

    Stayed on the way back to Calais. On arrival tge welcome was very friendly. The room overlooked the river, was small but perfectly equipped with everything needed, even a shoe horn. The place was very clean. Breakfast was excellent with quality products on offer. Recommended for a short stay.

    « decent value for the price »

    Very nice people that work in the hotel, as Best Westerns go the property is above average. Good breakfast spread and the staff is attentive. Downside is a hard bed and although they say they don't need air conditioning, it's been hot and humid this week and not having air conditioning really was an issue. The hotel does its job as an inexpensive functional hotel near Mt. St. Michel, but the rooms aren't anything special with cramped restrooms and a small work area.

    « Beautiful hotel in perfect surroundings. »

    Picture perfect hotel with great rooms, great food and great people. Located in small village with many nice buildings. Great view to the river. City is small so limited activities. Short drive to Mt. St. Michell.

    « Lovely fresh hotel. »

    This was a pleasant surprise. Lovely and clean overlooking the river. It's also dog friendly. There's parking, lovely walks and it's in a delightful spot. The restaurant is ok but gourmet food lovers should eat out perhaps. The staff are helpful (Cecilia in particular), making lots of stuff easier.

    « Quaint »

    A very quaint hotel in a very quaint village! Lovely friendly receptionists. Clean and tidy room with good facilities. The restaurant wasn't that great but was convenient as there wasn't a lot open the night we were in Ducey, I heard a lot of beeps from the microwave.

    « Fabulous stay. »

    A warm welcome on arrival, all the staff speak perfect English and cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. Our room was on the first floor, lift in hotel, our room overlooked the fabulous weir, very clean, had everything you need, minibar, hairdryer, toiletries, free bottle of water, kettle and tea and coffee,tv with English news channel, even a fan in the room which was most welcome. Very comfortable bed with good bedding, stayed for one night at the start of our holiday and booked another night for the end of our holiday.the staff even let us have the same room. The breakfast was perfect, the Danish pastries were divine, the evening meal was beautiful, different menu each night. I could have stayed here much longer, we were very comfortable and the staff were superb.exceptional value for money.

    « Puts customer service first »

    A combination of modern decor and clever design makes this converted mill look surprisingly large and grand. Public rooms are light and airy, there is a lift to upper floors and soft-close doors everywhere ensure you aren't disturbed by banging doors. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful throughout. We were given a free upgrade to a Superior Riverside Room. It wasn't huge or particularly deluxe (the bath was quite small, in fact) but was very well-appointed with useful things like tower multi-sockets that popped up out of the surface, a magnifying shaving mirror and dimming bedside lights. The river view was absolutely delightful, but the river was full after heavy rain and we found the weir kept us awake, despite double glazing! We had found the websites quite confusing on catering, so ate en-route. In fact, the hotel serves simple meals and bar snacks on evenings, but also provides a canteen area, for those wanting to picnic. Breakfast was a good-standard French buffet, clean and well-stocked - we found the fresh fruit juices especially good.

    « Beautiful hotel, in perfect setting »

    A beautiful hotel in perfect setting in the lovely village of Ducey. Very nice personal reception and if the restaurant with lovely meals. Good breakfast. Ideal location for excursions to Mt. St. Michel, Cancale and St Malo. A place that we will surely come back if we are in the same area.

    « Super hotel all round »

    We stayed here for one night during a cycling tour of Normandy. We arrived mid afternoon and were upgraded to an executive room overlooking the river. There was a party of American/Canadian cyclists also staying that night but there was still plenty of secure parking for our bikes at the hotel The staff at the hotel were very warm and friendly, we were given recommendations for eating out and the room was clean and with enough room for us and all our stuff. The room would not have suited everyone as it was over the river which was quite noisy, it wasn't too bad with the windows shut but if it was a hot night it would have been difficult to sleep for some people I'm sure. We had breakfast the next day which was perfectly fine, a good selection of cereals, cheese, fruits and breads. Just what was needed for a day in the saddle. Whilst this was a chain hotel it didn't have that feel on account of the staff who really were very nice and made us feel very welcome. Wifi was easy to connect to and it's within walking distance of the town centre. There was also a fridge in our room which we didnt' use but I'm sure some people would in the summer months to chill a bottle of something to drink whilst looking out over the river, which lights up in the evening.

    « Consistently excellent »

    We have been to this hotel on a number of occasions and I have been meaning to post a review for ages. My last stay here was in April and we normally come every year around that time as we visit my sister who lives nearby. We have been for the past nine years and would never stay anywhere else. We only have good things to say. The staff are excellent and on our most recent stay the receptionist Cecilia helped us when my husband had a flat tyre and very quickly found us a garage that could help and sorted it all out so avoided a very stressful situation. She could not have been more efficient. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the beds are really comfy. Plus it is so quiet and you never hear any noise from other people. The added bonus of being on the river makes it even more perfect and the windows open up wide enough to get a nice breeze when it's warm which is important to us as so many hotel rooms can be really hot and stuffy. The breakfast is plentiful and tasty and constantly replenished so there is always more than enough for everyone. In the years that we have been going the owners have made lots of improvements and are continually thinking of new ideas although we think the hotel is lovely already but it's good that they care enough to do these things. There is also ample parking which is really useful. Ducey is a lovely quiet, quaint little village so you will definitely have a wonderful stay.

    « Amazing Hotel »

    We stayed for one night after having to unexpectedly drive up from Spain through France after the Brittany Ferries ferry from Santander to Portsmouth was cancelled. We stayed in a second floor river view room with our dog. The view from the room was amazing, especially after dark when the hotel and bridge are illuminated. The Management are really friendly and helpful and recognised us from a previous stay last year. The rooms are fairly small but with all amenities and very comfortable beds. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

    « Perfect hotel for visit Mont Saint Michel »

    For those who travel by car this Hotel is best option to stay if you want to visit Mont Saint Michel. Located very close to parking lot of Mont Saint Michel (10 minutes driving) the Hotel offers very convenient overnight staying in very comfortable rooms. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Some rooms have wonderful views of the river and old bridge.

    « Couldn't ask for much more »

    We stayed one night to be close to Mont St Michele (10 min) so we could get an early start the next morning. It was perfect. The room was well appointed and a nice size. Wifi worked well. Also offer a washer/dryer for guest use. Free guest parking was convenient and pretty much right outside the door. There's breakfast and I believe evening food service as well.The staff were fantastic and couldn't be more accommodating ensuring we had everything we needed. The town of Ducey is quaint and lovely for a walk around although not much available for evening entertainment.

    « Lovely hotel near Mont St-Michel »

    I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of a family trip to Normandie in April 2016. I chose it as it was convenient to both Mont St-Michel and St-Malo, without the very high cost of hotels in both of those locations. It proved to be an excellent choice. The hotel is located in a former mill beside the Selune river in the small town of Ducey. The mill has been turned into a charming small hotel with about 20 rooms. The hotel provides free parking across the street and has a very small but functional elevator. Check-in was a breeze and the front desk staff was charming. Breakfast is a little pricy at 12€ but we found it worth it as it was delicious. It featured boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, cold cuts, various cheeses, yogurt, cereal, fresh bread/croissants/pastries, small crepes, juices and coffee. If you would like to eat breakfast at the hotel you need to let the front desk know the night before so they can adjust their food purchases accordingly. Our room was on the second floor, just under the roof, facing the waterfall on the river. It was fairly large with a comfortable bed and a desk area. The bathroom was a nice size, with a full sized tub with shower. There was also a closet and a minibar. Everything was clean and in good condition. Complimentary bottled water was offered and the WiFi worked well. The room was very quiet and we never heard the neighbors. Last but not least, dinner is available at the hotel for 22€50 for a 3 course meal. You need to reserve in advance and let the front desk know what you would like to eat when you reserve so they can plan accordingly. We had dinner there on the first night and it was delicious, highly recommended! Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to explore the Mont St-Michel area.

    « Very friendly owners. Excellent location »

    We had hoped to book a hotel closer to Mont St. Michel but these were either booked or had very sketchy reviews. We ended up booking at the Moulin de Ducey and were very happy. The owners are extremely friendly and clearly enjoy running the hotel. They were very accommodating and spent a considerable time helping us plan our excursions to the Abbey and other local attractions.

    « LOVED our stay »

    What a cute hotel!!! The location is lovely as it overlooks the river and bridge. The staff are very friendly, attentive and informative. Very close to Mont Saint-Michel. Used the hotel as our base for exploring the WWII sights. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Will highly recommend this hotel. Loved our French breakfast too.

    « Its ok not great, but cheap! Beware of their PET policy. »

    Beware of this hotel's pet policy. We have book this hotel because they allow dogs and we paid the surcharge for it happily HOWEVER we were not aware their fine print till it was too late. We have been traveling around France with our dog without any problem since we made sure all the hotel we stayed in allow dogs. However we have encounter this hotel that allow dogs but they are not allow by them self in the room... This is a problem for us as some touristic sites do not allow pets, we are not going to leave our dog in the car for hours to visit an attraction more over it was humiliating when we have our breakfast in the morning we have to take him into the car until we finish the breakfast since he is not allow to be in the room by him self " thank goodness the weather was not warm or we would have changed hotel " . We are not going to bring our dog to the breakfast area in a busy hotel with people running around with potential of disturbing others. Long story short I believe if the hotel can not allow the pet in the room by them self they should drop their pet friendly policy since we pay extra for the dog to stay with us.

    « Excellent stay! »

    I spend two nights at this jewel! To start with, location was excellent, just 15 minutes drive from St. Michel. But this is not the point. The point is the hotel itself. Located by a river, offering magnificent view over it (at least my room and its restaurant), service and the attitude of the staff was very attentive! Definitely worth visiting!

    « Short Break in Normandy »

    We were only there for 3 days but the staff are very welcoming and helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and simple. Breakfast simple but plentiful and with a lovely view of the river and bridge. Very fast WiFi in the room and a private car park with lots of space.

    « Paper napkin? »

    Nothing wrong with the hotel. Friendly reception Good rooms Well located Simple but adequate french breakfast But I could hardly find my paper napkin which was smaller than my spectacle tissue. Why to save on a piece of paper?? Does this need more than 200 words?

    « Great welcome and excellent base to discover the Region »

    The Moulin de Ducey is a very original place, located in a old water mill this place is really nice. Rooms are simple but clean. Welcome from the owners is excellent an they are doing everything possible to satisfy their customer. they are also of good advice if you want to discover the region.

    « Wonderful accomodation »

    We needed a place not too far from Mont St Michel, and this was the ticket! Ducey is a pleasant little town, and this establishment is lovingly cared for. The owners were very friendly and helpful - you won't be disappointed.

    « Two steps from Mont Saint Michel »

    Stayed there for a night during rainy night on March 2015. No other hotels were on service at that time of year. Fortunately Best Western in always the best! We were pleased to see what a beatutiful view from old moulin (mill) to the river...

    5
    « Beautiful setting »

    This village is beautiful, however the view from the hotel of the river and waterfall made our visit! The welcome we received from the hostess on arriving and every time we entered the lobby was wonderful. The morning breakfast of an assortment of delicious pastries and fruits started our days of exploring the beautiful French countryside.

    « The staff REALLY made the difference here. »

    We drove (blindly) to Ducey and chose the Best Western "brand" because of our previous experience. This is without a doubt a gem of a hotel owned and operated by a wonderful couple. (Say hello to Patricia for us). They showed us the rooms available before hand, treated us with care and were very friendly. Patricia speaks extremely good English! Their dinner menu varies each evening and you will never be disappointed. We chose a room over the old mill (for which the hotel is named) and the bridge is lighted at night under the arches. It is a wonderful place to stay and we cannot say enough about the owners! Have fun here.

    « Great location »

    Loved this quaint hotel in the city of Ducey, France not far from Mont St Michel. The owners of the hotel were very helpful with what to see in the area and suggestions for restaurants. Rooms are very quiet and they also offer dinner every night except Sunday. It is new and they want to try it out to see if people like it.

    « A warm welcome and comfortable stay. »

    We had a lovely welcome from the lady on reception who spoke good English. Our room was compact, but comfortable, and spotless, with a good bed and lovely French sheets and good pillows. We slept well. We did not eat at the hotel but had a pizza in the village which was just five minutes walk. The hotel is situated in a quiet nice area on the edge of the river. We had a good breakfast with everything you could expect from a French hotel. Good value for money with the bonus of free private parking. Would recommend without hesitation.

    « Beautiful and extremely comfortable stay »

    We stayed for 2 nights while we visited Mont St. Michel and also St. Malo. We were looking for a small village that was close to historic sites without all the tourists and traffic. In Ducey, we found this lovely hotel. Our room was small (like many European hotel rooms) but immaculate and comfortable. The view outside our room was soooo beautiful. Make sure you get a river view room. The breakfasts were very good too. But besides for the setting, the best thing about this hotel was the staff. They went over and beyond to be helpful and informative. Celeste was a dream! We were able to catch up on laundry in the hotel too. And the private little island!!! Wonderful! I hope to return!

    « Best Ever »

    The area was enchanting and we had a corner room to be able to hear the river at night and see the lighting of the bridge. Appreciated that this hotel honors my husband's service as a veteran by giving a nice discount even on the best rooms. The managers were very friendly and helpful. We even had the fun of attending an open air market just one block from the Hotel. The dinners were delicious and very affordable.

    « Wonderful stay »

    Our second visit to this lovely, friendly hotel and it is even better now they do delicious evening meals at the weekend. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Breakfasts are delicious with plenty of fresh options. Our room overlooked the weir, which lulled us to sleep every night. We were lucky with the weather to enjoy sundowners on the hotel's private island. Many thanks to all the staff.

    « Perfect hotel in a lovely Village »

    Stayed two nights and was very happy with the large, comfortable room with a river view. A nice bonus were the charging poles in the night tables for all those peck your electronic we seem to drag on vacation these days. By leaning out one of my windows I could easily the historic bridge and weir. Staff were efficient and helpful and the breakfast was very generous for the 11 euro price. Would stay there again as it was a great base from which to visit Mont St Michel, Dinan, Fourgeres or St malo and is not that far from the invasion beaches.

    « I asked for a quiet room it was so peaceful! »

    This hotel is wonderful, the rooms are perfectly adequate size wise and the bathrooms are lovely! It's all very clean. Having a heated towel rail in the bathroom is a bonus because you can have dry towels in the morning if you shower the night before as well! The reception staff are so friendly, they have spares (toothbrushes etc!) and they can recommend nice places to eat. There is a pizzaria in town which is about 3 minutes walking distance and the food is great. There's the availability of everything from steak, to bolognese, margarita pizza, salads for the plain lovers like me - or much more adventurous foods for those who like more adventurous foods! The town is lovely and peaceful, there is a long walk/cycle path from the hotel which goes for miles, I went for a run as soon as I got here and the next morning like I would at home, and never saw a single person each time!

    « Equally as good this time »

    Revisited the Mill at Ducey and it has been refurbished since 2012. Had a room overlooking the old bridge for that pretty view. The hotel is still as good . we took the breakfast which was good, pastries , cheese, bacon, eggs, fruit, a bit more than a french breakfast. No evening meal option but excellent restaurant just around the corner. Staff helpfull and the hotel is easy to find from the motorway, with it's own car park out front, choose this place if you want to visit the Mont st Michel as it's not far away. Very pleasant i will be back.

    « I would stay here again and again. »

    How do you describe a hotel that feels more like visiting good friends after only the first night? A comfortable room with a view to die for, a quiet location in a friendly village and staff that make you feel at home from the moment you check in. The room we were given had a view of the old mill stream and, on opening the window, were welcomed by the sound of a small waterfall. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom more than adequate. Wifi was excellent but that's not what you are here for. The village of Ducey is utterly charming, not for it's history (which it has by the bucketload) but for it's people. Everyone we met was friendly, helpful and welcoming. We tried two local restaurants and both were staffed by wonderful folks who, sorry for being repetitious, were very welcoming. The village is close to a whole lot of different sites so it works very well as a base to discover Basse Normandie or Haute Bretagne. The couple who run this hotel and their staff are outstanding. They work hard and it shows. The property is spotless, the breakfast excellent and the front desk service is outstanding. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in the area.

    This hotel was a mill once upon a time. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was good. The river runs right behind the hotel and if one opens the window once can hear it.Parking is free so that is a bonus.

    « Very comfortable room and pleasant location »

    Stayed here for one night before a ferry home from St Malo the next day - wonderful location overlooking the Sélune river and easy to reach just off the A84. Hotel staff were exceptional - even offering me secure parking for my motorcycle without me asking - top notch! Highly recommended and top of my list of places to stay the next time I visit Brittany.

    « Lovely hotel in a lovely location »

    The location of the hotel is beautiful, over looking a river and waterfall. The room we had was clean and had two windows with beautiful views on the river and water falls. Bed was super comfortable and loved the bedding and pillows. The only down side was taking a shower, the bathtub was awkward because the floor of it was not flat and slippery and needed a handrail for safety. Should provide facecloths as well as soap products to guests. Would like to mention how very helpful some of the staff were especially Cecelia who greeted us and recommended places to eat as well as Valerie who guided us to mont St. Michel and booked our next hotel room for the next leg of our visit in Normandy. Would recommend this hotel if you are visiting Normandy and want something reasonably priced and comfortable.

    « Ideal for for short break »

    This hotel, an old mill at one time, situated next to a river, was perfect for a couple of days to visit the surrounding area. The interior is modern with clean lines, the fairly basic rooms were comfortable with tea and coffee facilities. The very helpful reception staff spoke wonderful English. Breakfast was reasonably priced, with the typical continental choices being continually replenished. I would definitely recommend if thinking of visiting this area of Normandy

    We stayed at this hotel on our return journey through Brittany, and we could not have been made more welcome. The staff really put themselves out to accommodate us together in one corridor (there were five of us), and were only too pleased to give us keys to the little island in the river and show us around. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and modern, with the added benefit of overlooking the peaceful river. Could not fault it.

    « Magnifique!! »

    We have just had a 2 night stay at this hotel. We could not have been treated better. The hotel is situated in a lovely town, ideal for touring the area. Mont St Michelle, Cancale and several lovely beaches are all within an hours drive. The staff are wonderful. Cecilia and Marine are both extremely pleasant. They make you feel very welcome but are also very knowledgeable about the area and helpful as to where to visit. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well equipped with all you may require, including tea/coffee making. Breakfast surprised me in that it included bacon and scrambled egg as well as the normal continental breakfast fare. It was nicely cooked and presented. A really good breakfast. A hotel is a former watermill. The building and grounds are charming and ideal for relaxing and reading a book. Make sure you get the 'special key to the garden' from Cecilia. If you plan to visit the area I could not recommend this hotel highly enough. We will definitely return as we have really enjoyed our stay.

    « nice »

    nice hotel, breakfast was good. Only point of critic is that there was some weird duff smell in the hotel. Hotel is situated in the 'center' of the town, near a river. Parking is free. People are nice, had no problems.

    « Lovely little town. Friendly and helpful staff! »

    Lovely hotel with gracious and helpful staff. We arrived late and reception was ready for us. Very helpful and graciously spoke English for us, which was not expected, but so very appreciated. She even offered to make a dinner reservation for us. We would definitely stay here again. The hallways and doors are a little funky, but we don't mind that all, and in fact, it adds to the charm!

    « Excellent Overnight »

    Stayed here for one night en route further south. Excellent location, easy to find, right by the river. Very picturesque. Modern hotel inside, but old mill on outside. Rooms were clean and modern. We had the dinner which was good value. I wouldn't say great but ok. Service very friendly. Lovely village. Would recommend and close to Mont St Michel too. Good value in all.

    « Family Holiday »

    This hotel, previously an old water mill, was in a wonderful location overlooking the La Selune river. View from our room was lovely. Evening meal and breakfast excellent. Rose de Loire 2014 was a very good bottle of wine! Receptionist Ceciliu was very welcoming and helpful and her English good. The restaurant setting overlooking the river bathed in sunshine was a relaxing experience.

    « So many better options »

    The hotel is in a wonderful old mill building, it is true, and the lobby has been nicely refurbished. Some of the bathrooms have been reasonably modernized (we took 3 rooms for our family, so we saw some of the variety of the hotel) and are functional enough--but this is the type of hotel that offers no shampoo or soap, resorting instead to a single pump dispenser in the shower. The rooms are tiny and the furniture is dated. It seems as if the hotel does a lot of business with tour groups, which seem to get the best rooms (out of 3 rooms, not one had a good view of the river) and who dominate the common area at night. I do want to praise the woman who is the afternoon/evening manager. She is exceptionally efficient, very helpful and pleasant. Her English is superb. To be sure, there is nothing *wrong* with this property. It's an affordable place in a nice location. There's just nothing that particularly recommends either the hotel itself or, frankly, Ducey. The town is small and sleepy. We were hoping for something that would be charming in the area of St. Michel, but if we had it to do over, we would probably just stay in Pontorson instead--a larger town with more restaurants, more services and more to see. Pontorson is also a relatively short bike ride to Mont Saint-Michel (~4 miles...and it's easy to rent a bike), which may make it a better base for most travelers. I would *not* recommend the hotels that are just across the causeway from MSM itself, as this area feels like a pure tourist depot.

    « Lovely , well run & a great night's sleep - if you like rushing water »

    Le Moulin is next to the medieval bridge in Ducey & our room overlooked it - with the weir beneath our window. The hotel is actually modern & has clearly been recently spruced up - effectively. It's...

    « Exceptional experience »

    This was truly an exceptional location, property and staff very near to Mont Saint Michele and many other very interesting sites to visit. This property is at the top of a long list of places we have stayed over years.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We have stayed in this hotel before and probably will again. Excellent hotel in a quiet location in a small town less than 2 miles from the motorway so ideal for a stop over and verry acceptable for a longer stay.the staff are all very polite and helpful and the you get a very good buffet break fast. There is no restautant at the hotel bit the are restaurants in tha town all within a few miutes walk with a particularly good one about 100 metres away

    « Ducey Best Western »

    Superb location, wonderful ambience, great staff. It is a great place to see Mont St. Michel from. Also it is at the gateway to Brittany and is easy to get to from all directions. Cecilia was great help at check in. It was a pleasure to stay there.

    « A beautiful mill on the river »

    We loved this hotel (built around an old mill) in Ducey. The village is delightfully rural and photographic and it's close to the highway A10 and only 15 minutes to Mt. St. Michel. Rooms were immaculate, as are all common areas. Free parking is right across the street. The family that runs this place are sincerely welcoming and did everything possible to make our visit perfect!

    « value for money »

    I think this hotel offers good value for money overall but breakfast cost is a little high for what is offered. Staff very friendly and efficient. Overall appearance of the hotel inside and outside is very pleasing to the eye and public spaces are kept tidy and clean

    « Nice hotel in a great setting »

    Clean comfortable hotel in a beautiful setting--it was a mill at one time and actually is built over a river. Ducey is a lovely, quiet town with a market day on the main street--about a two minute walk from the hotel. Very accommodating owners. Hope to return and would recommend this hotel to others. Sorry we had to leave!

    « Lovely converted water mill »

    Pretty hotel in lovely village. No restaurant but a number of restaurants/bistros within walking distance. Superior room rather small but the downside was the traffic noise throughout the night, only a couple of vehicles per hour but they generated enough noise to wake me up. no aircon (large fan provided) so windows were kept open.

    « Best Western Ducey »

    A basic hotel and not a bad location in which to visit the region. Bed very comfy and clean. Room a little on the small side and in the summer very hot and stuffy, would benefit from aircon. TV sound button is restricted so couldn't turn it up and couldn't hear it so was a waste of space.

 

Getting to the hotel ...

All directions
·From: Paris. Take A13 toward Caen, then go on the A84 toward Mont Saint Michel, exit N33. Continue until you come to the sign on the right side indicating Ducey. Upon entering Ducey, turn right at the traffic light, go to the end of the road and turn again on your right. Drive another 30 meters to the BEST WESTERN Le Moulin De Ducey.
