“A stone's throw from everything”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

What a pleasant surprise when we turned up at this hotel, doesn't look flash from the outside but really nice inside, great rooms with hardly any noise, and so close to everything - you can walk just about anywhere from here. We were going on a cruise at the end of our stay at the hotel and it only took about 3 minutes to walk to the cruise terminal.

Room Tip: Don't think there would be any problems at this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 days - on a November weekend. Wonderful experience.

Location - perfect - south view of the harbour, walk almost anywhere.
Rooms - recently remodeled classic office building - rooms are WOW. Turndown service.
Breakfast - excellent choices, great service, private seating or join a group

Overall - great boutique hotel experience - end of November Quebec City was cold but the hospitality was warm and you could walk anywhere. Hotel is modern, squeaky clean, friendly bilingual staff. We had no car (it's close to the train station) but there was parking in rear.

Restaurants and shops are very close.

Very relaxing overall - great getaway, met some nice folks sitting around the fireplace with a "real" wood fire.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have a view of the river.

We have been to this hotel approximately 6 times, i cannot express how beautiful it is. Once you come in the door and see the warm recption area, you can't wait to see the rest. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable you do not want to leave them, they always have the Bose on with the most soothing music as you open the door to your room. The breakfast is also excellent, fresh couissants, home made jams, eggs, cereal, fresh fruit juices and more. I can't wait until we go back again in December.

Room Tip: They are all good.

We visited in May 2013. As part of a "Tripadvisor special", we each received a glass of wine on the night of our check in. Nice touch! The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was great and there is a coffee/espresso/hot chocolate machine available at all times, as is fresh fruit. The concierge(s) were always able to give us great dinner recommendations, as well as show us a menu and call ahead for reservations! We drove to Quebec City and kept our car in the hotel's parking lot. Although we had the car, we seldom used it as many sites are within walking distance. Highly recommended!

Dear guest,

Coming from a top contributor to Trip Advisor, I consider your review as very special. It is obvious to me that you are traveling a lot worlwide and I am glad our accommodations and our team were able to please you so well.

Still thinking of us a few months later means also a lot... maybe you are planning to visit us again soon... our Holiday decor is ready for you with the fireplace lit up. Our city is beautiful and romantic covered with snow.

Warmest regards,

Sylvie Dionne

A well rested trip, a wonderful hotel, close to some fantastic restaurants that the staff recommended.
The bed was soft and cosy not like some bed that are hard and not comfortable.
The room was a good size with a view of the harbour. We could watch all the tanker traffic and the small craft. Love being close to the water as we are in the Georgian Bay area.
Not once did we have a problem with English the staff were most careful and accommodating
Breakfast was excellent lots of choice and fresh, and I loved the coffee.
Only thing that I would change as someone else has mentioned, the room was dark and I did have a problem when I lost a earring and couldn't find it due to not being able to see.

Room Tip: Staff did suggest to us that we take a room with a view of the St. Lawrence.

This was certainly one of the best boutique hotels I have stayed in. Firstly, my husband and I make our annual trip to Quebec City with his full size pick-up truck (21 feet long and 6'2" high lol) because part of our trip includes a visit to Ikea ;)... So finding parking is a challenge. The staff at this hotel was so great about reserving us a spot in their parking lot so that we had easy access in and out of the lot. The staff at this hotel is very helpful in other ways as well! As soon as we arrived, they provided us with detailed information about the area, the best rest aureate, shops and events that were going on that weekend. Our room was fantastic as well. It was very clean and comfortable (as was the rest of the hotel for that matter!). In the evening, chocolates and bottled water were delivered to our room which we greatly appreciated. The hotel also offers breakfast that is included in the room rate, and it was really surprising. There was a selection of pastries, cereals, breads, cheeses, juices, tea, coffee (and I should mention that there is an espresso machine available in the lobby for guests 24 hours a day), hard-boiled eggs, bagels, toast and fruit! Normally we opt out of hotel breakfasts, but we were glad we decided to check this one out! The lobby is organized and decorated in a way that makes it very inviting and comfortable to enjoy breakfast or a coffee break. The location of the hotel is great also as it is very close to a lot of great shopping. My husband and I have already decided that we will stay here again next year. Awesome!!

First impression on entering hotel was the welcoming feel and comfortable surroundings supported by the very friendly and pleasant reception staff. In fact all the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient.The reception / lounge area really does feel like a home from home and you are immediately relaxed in the surroundings. Coffee machine on hand 24/7 and in the morning breakfast has a good self service selection which you can eat either in the comfortable settees / armchairs or on one of the large communal tables creating a great morning environment for enjoying a leisurely start to the day. The lounge area is also where you can be served a comfortable pre dinner or after dinner drink before or after sampling one of the many close by inviting restaurants. No need for a car or taxi here within a few minutes walk you have a great choice in the streets of the lower part of Old Quebec and if you wish to venture further there is always the funicular or a testing walk to the upper part of the old city. Personally we preferred the immediate vicinity in the lower area.
Room was very comfortable with lots of low key and varied lighting options although no overall big bright light if that's what you wanted once the daylight had gone. Nice bathroom with one of the best showers I have ever experienced in a hotel, like a large walk in wet room.
Very comfortable bed, small desk to work on as needed, decent hanging space for a short stay and large room safe which is always welcome (easily fits a lap top).
Spent an enjoyable 3 days here and would certainly be first on my list of places to stay when I return.
If you are in a car there is convenient parking at the rear of the hotel.
