MSM with kids 5 and 7 best hotel option for walk to MSM

Hi

If you have to walk 2km to the entrance from some car parks, we may as well walk from accomodation (if we can find any in our budget under £100 for family of four)

Can you recommend somewhere within walking distance, spending morning in St Malo then arrival about 3pm for overnight and another morning visit to MSM

thanks in advance - new to here not sure of the etiquete

there isn't really -- the car parks are on the causeway out to the mont, and there are no hotels on the causeway.

It would be pretty hard to get there in the morning and have to park 2km out -- we were there in July and parked just a few hundred metres from the entry, and we didn't get there until close to noon.

Depeneds when you are going though, as VERY soon there will be no parking on the causeway, but a parking 'lot' on the mainland and a shuttle bus (or horse & cart) to get you to the entrance of the Mount.

just on the mainland is the Motel and Hotel Vert which are reasonably priced.

That's as close as you're going to get -- you can stay on the mont itself, but there is nothing closer -- the causeway is quite long.

Really, you won't have to walk that far if you arrive in the morning.

if you are going to have to walk anyway why not look at Beauvoir?

We have young children & live within 15 mins of le mont. We always park at Beauvoir & walk up to le mont by the river. There is a childs playground & this is a great safe walk for children & a good way to avoid the traffic congestion. You have some lovely views of the mont from here

I cant recommend any specific hotels or B&B but there are a far number

the office de tourisme has a pretty comprehensive list.
