“Good Value in QC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

We enjoyed a clean and well appointed room for three nights Sept 19-22, 2011. Elizabeth prepared wonderful and unique fruit and vegetable breakfasts (two with eggs) that started our days off perfectly. She helped us plan our stay in QC. We were aware of the length of the walks to access the old city and that the neighborhood was a concern for some. You walk through an urban neighborhood some of which is a bit rough though not a safety concern for us. What we were surprised to find, was the high percentage of smoking thoughout the portions of the city we visited away from "old QC".

Elizabeth was distressed that bed bugs had been found in her upstairs appartment and was open about that with us. We - and her other guests staying on the main level - had no issues. Elizabeth is hard working and serious about keeping a clean B&B. This is a temporary issue confined to one area. We would stay with her again.

Please note up front that this is not a review of the rooms, the food or the congeniality of the hosts - we did not have the opportunity to experience these because La Victorienne Urbaine cancelled our reservation.

Our confirmed reservation, secured by CC, was cancelled less than a week before our scheduled arrival on September 23. The reason we were given? Bedbugs! We obviously were quite disappointed because, after reading all of the wonderful reviews about this B&B on TA and other sites, we very much were looking forward to our stay. This also caused us a lot of anxiety, as we had to scramble to find new lodgings at the last minute in a city which appeared to be completely booked because of peak fall colors. We would have appreciated greater assistance from the hosts in locating alternate lodging.

We did check online (http://bedbugregistry.com/) and found no reports of beg bug infestation at this address, although the site clearly says that its list is not necessarily complete. Whether or not there is a problem with bed bugs, please be advised of our experience.

vurbaine, Owner at La Victorienne Urbaine, responded to this review, 21 September 2011
It's really unfortunate that I had to cancel your reservation in the last minute ( one week before),I had to cancel all my reservation for one month even the ones who were due the next day,because this is how long it takes to get rid of the bugs, something that I have no control over and that somebody else brought into my home.
As soon as I knew about that problem I was thinking about safety first, the infested area is in one bedroom in the suite only,so I was able to take care of the problem immediately and block up the whole second floor.The rest of the B&B has not been touched.
Due to extreme anxiety and because I had to find relocation for the next guests, I agree that I didn't do my job right with the people coming later in the month,I still gave you another B&B to try,but we are still in season and it's difficult to find something else.

I read other reviews on trip adviser before choosing this b&b and only one reviewer said it was a thirty minute walk from Quebec's train station....that alone would have been ok but no one mentioned that the area of the b&b is very poor. The closest area for a "nice" dinner is a 15 minute walk to the St Roch area and even this so called "trendy" area is rather sketchy. Plan to walk at least 45 min to get to old Quebec. Overall if you do prefer to save money and being out of the old city is okay then I would recommend this b&b since the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Beautiful home within walking distance to the main Quebec City attractions with optional bus right to the door. All rooms have private baths, are immaculate, and furnished comfortably. Elisabeth prepares a delicious gourmet breakfast each morning. She is professonal, but friendly and willing to help map out the best possible way to enjoy Quebec. We feel that because of Elisabeth's help, we were able to experience the best of the attractions and cuisine.

My wife and I stayed two nights in Le Victorienne Urbaine B&B while visiting for our first time in Quebec City and could not have stayed in a better place!
Elisabeth was very kind and helped us craft the best plan to get the most out of our visit.
She isalso an amazing cook and surprised us every morning with delicious breakfasts that gave us energy and kept us full for most of the dayinour marathonic journeys!

Rooms are spacious and thoroughly cleaned.

I highly recommend this b&b to anyone looking to visit Quebec City!

We chose this B and B after reading excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything that we read about La Victorienne Urbaine and the hostess Elisabeth is true! She runs this business in a very professional manner and yet enjoys spending time chatting and getting to know her guests. Her culinary skills are incredible - really she could run a bistro or something. I loved the fruit smoothies, the fresh fruits with yoghurts, and her breads and homemade preserves were out of this world. Crepes filled with apple and cinnamon, smothered in maple syrup - mmm. Courgette galettes topped with eggs were yummy. We stayed three nights - (not so keen though on garlic vegetables for breakfast served in ciabatta buns - maybe this is a French thing though - and when in Rome.........) and as I really am veering on the side of gluten intolerance perhaps there was a predominance of wheat in these amazing breakfasts so I would bear this in mind and would maybe mention it if we stayed again.
Elisabeth gave us a map and pointed out places of interest which we found extremely helpful. We walked into town and really felt we got to know the layout of the city well. I wish she had warned us against the "Quebec Experience" though - it was desperate! One last thing - we had to pass through the kitchen to get to our room and it would just have been nice to have been invited to help ourselves to a cup of tea - especially in the evening - add an extra couple of dollars a day maybe to include tea bags, instant coffee, a little milk - makes all the difference - if we had asked perhaps this was possible? Similarly after a very long drive to Quebec it would have been great to be offered a drink on arrival - even a glass of water.....
