Nuit Saint-Pierre, Saint-Pierre

For the three days we were in Saint-Pierre, Gord and I stayed at the Nuit Saint-Pierre.

There are a handful of hotels in Saint-Pierre.  I chose this because it included breakfast and there was a shuttle to and from the airport (which is just minutes away).  WIFI is free and there is a computer upstairs if you don't have your own laptop.  The keyboard is in French, though, which was a bit challenging to use when I checked it out.

Here is our room ... we had the Lamartine Room.  It was very nice!

Here is the kitchen, which was on our floor.  There are four rooms and a suite in the hotel so breakfast was a friendly affair in the mornings.

Patricia, the owner, has a tea room on the main floor so there were croissants for breakfast, along with yogurt, eggs, toast, fruit, coffee, tea, juice, etc.

Breakfast was prepared in the kitchen every morning.  Gord had a crepe a couple mornings.

Its location is great and we were able to walk everywhere.  The boat to go to Langlade and Miquelon yesterday was just down the street, as is the ferry to Newfoundland.  The cemetery is a short walk away.  The restaurants are just around the corner.

Keep in mind that this is France, the plugs were different.  We'd brought an adapter but it didn't work.  Patricia was kind enough to lend us one.

If I could make one recommendation if you stay here, try to get a room that is facing the ocean as the rooms seem to be cooler.  Our room faced the street and it was warm.  There is no a/c but we did have a fan in our room that helped.  By the third night, we discovered the best spot for it was at the end of bed on the settee blowing at us.  In addition, we kept our room door open until bedtime to catch a cross breeze.

If/when I go back to Saint-Pierre, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Nuit Saint-Pierre.
