“NOT WORTH IT.”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

This place should be called a youth hostel and cost not more than $40 per night. It's an extremely basic and tasteless accommodation where everything is stripped to the bare minimum. There is a total mismatch between the impression you get when checking their online pictures, and reality. Chalets have mostly no view and are of very low quality. Public areas are overcrowded and very noisy. Walking trails are poorly indicated.

Ironically called "superior", our room was extremely basic and small, poorly finished and furnished, with no air conditioning, no TV and no Wi-Fi (available only in the main building within a 10-minute walk). Shower/toilet room was so small we had to kneel to be able to see ourselves in the mirror. The worst part though was the non-existent noise isolation. You hear absolutely everything your neighbours do and say, even when they start whispering after realising the same.
The manager of this "establishment" dismisses all similar reviews (just scroll down for his previous feedback). The truth though is that the place is totally overpriced for what it is, while there are enough quality properties in the region, including with stunning views of rivers and lakes.

we stay only one night at Cap Leste in Ste-Rose du nord, the room are basic but clean and comfortable, each room does have a beautiful view on the Saguenay river. There is no air conditionning but we slept very good with window open and fresh air from Saguenay, not noise disturbed our sleep. We had choosen to eat there and have a package with dinner and breakfast. The employees were very pleasant and offer very good service. We had terrine as an appetizer and for main course meal the choice between pork filet or whole trout, the desert was a nice chocolat cream mousse. The view in the restaurant is totally breathtaking.
you have the possibility to do kayak, fishing and swimming in a lake.
however, there is 6km of gravel from the highway to the hotel site...not very pleasant when you are running a motorcycle or a sport car....but we didn't regret our stay.

I stayed at La Pourvoirie du Cap au Leste mid-june with my husband and my 6 year old son. The purpose of our long weekend was to relax, stay close to the nature and enjoy the Saguenay area. La Pouvoirie was a awesome place to stay, food was great and even if there is only one menu with strarter, main course and desert, the Chef was able to change the main
course if needed (for ex: I do not like fish, so he replaced it by chicken for instance). Really appreciated. The view and area are gorgeous and the staff is really pleasant and professional. I do recommend La Pourvoirie Cap au Leste. Next time we will enjoy all winter activities.

If you are looking for somewhere to soothe the senses and re-energize the spirit...this is it. It is located away from the beaten path on a wonderful property that looks south over the Saguenay with stunning views that will take your breath away. The fall colours were spectacular. There are wonderful trails to wander the expansive property and enjoy the tranquility. The rooms were cottage style rustic, clean and comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly. The food is hearty and tasty. Definitely a very revitalizing and enjoyable experience.

I had a chance to visit this fall in Sept for 3 nights. As you will note - the reviews are all over the scale.. but that makes sense to me.. this is not the place for everyone..

it is off the beaten track, you are out in nature, there are dead spots for your smartphone (Bell seeming to be much better coverage in this area then Rogers !!), there is no phone or TV or wifi in your room etc etc.. so you either read that all and say Awesome !! Great !! Sign me up ... or you say.. I'm staying in the city because Im not really about nature.. so.. if you are looking for some peace and quiet and nature and beautiful/stunning views and hikes come.. but if you are looking for city views and thrills,this may not be the place for you.

Room Tip: I think the two best options is to come as a group/reunion/large family/meeting and be able to rent...

You get to the hotel after 7 km in the forest,try not. To get there first time at night.
The view is really impressive.
When you ask about the price try to find out about the tax,they have a lot and it is high.
Beware of eating there dinner,for us it was not tasty and very very expensive .
Breakfast was simple but ok.
We had a big room for 4 people and the view of the saguenay.having that first thing in the morning was worth while.i do recommend this hotel if you know what you're getting and avoid dinner.

Sometimes clichés are useful: away from it all. That is what Cap au Leste offers. Set on a forest clad hill it overlooks the impressive Saguenay fjord. Kind people show you the way though this simple and effective retreat. Rooms are on the small side and rather basic. Rustic would be the appropriate term here. Food in the nice resyaurant is honest and very good. Easy access to a few highlights in this area. Highly recommended!
