Auberge Saint-Antoine
Ranked #5 of 100 Hotels in Quebec City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2009

Second time staying here. A truly great hotel. Comfortable rooms with amazing bathrooms. The rooms are all different. The first one we were given felt a little small for us and our teenage son, but the second was perfect. If you stay over on a Wednesday night, they have a cocktail reception with the owner, which was not as well publicized as on our previous stay--so ask about it.

Breakfast on the outdoor terrace of Panache restaurant is glorious in good weather. The food is fresh and lovingly prepared. I've never stayed at the Frontenac, but would never dream of staying anywhere else in Quebec city than Auberge Saint-Antoine

Auberge Saint-Antoine is located at the corner of rue Saint-Antoine and rue Saint Pierre in the heart of Vieux (Old) Quebec. It is near the harbour where you can watch the cruise ships come and go. This auberge is a Relais & Chateau, making it one of the top hotels in the world for its service, charm, ambiance and attention to detail.

The auberge is located over part of the old city wall and some of the buildings that were destroyed during a seige when the British eventually forced the French to surrender the city. As a result, you will find many artifacts throughout the auberge. These items were rescued during the excavation and put on display everywhere you turn.

Each room is modern within this landmark auberge, but different. So make sure you explain what you are looking for when booking, be it a room with a queen-size bed and a small terrasse, or a larger room with a king-size bed. Do you want a view of the harbour or the city? The auberge also has in-door valet parking at $23/day. Check in is 4:00pm and check out is 12:00 noon.

The Panache restaurant occupies one of the two buildings making up Auberge Saint-Antoine. ("Panache" means "antlers"). The food was excellent and so well presented, but you've got to make dinner reservations early or you'll miss out on a wonderful dining experience! Panache is open for breakfast every morning and you can simply charge the meals to your room.

As for dining in other places, we found the concierge service very helpful. There are so many great restaurants within a very short walk from the auberge, but again, book early!

Don't bother trying "Initials" Restaurant around the corner from the auberge. Although it is a "Relais Gourmand", it had all the ambiance of a funeral parlor and the food was not memorable.

You must try a bistro called "Echaudee", meaning "burnt"... this bistro is within a very short walk from the auberge. The atmosphere and food made us believe that we were transported to France.

We also highly recommend "aux Anciens Canadiens" for lunch where you will be able to try real French food from Quebec. This restaurant is in a house built in 1675! It is located within a very short walk from Chateau Frontenac on rue Saint-Louis.

Over all you will find Quebec City (particularly) Vieux Quebec a beautiful and interesting place to visit with many shops, restaurants, bistros and art galleries. The people are friendly and will slip into English the moment they notice that you are having even the slightest bit of difficulty understanding French. The city is extremely clean (with very little, if any graffiti).

We were able to walk to every spot within Vieux Quebec, including the Citadel (with the help of the Funiculaire which is sort of a gondola on a track to get up and down the steep cliff near Chateau Frontenac). The cost was only $1.75 CDN per person each way.

I can't say enough wonderful adjectives about the Saint Antoine. I took my husband there as a surprise for his 65th birthday. We had never been to Quebec City..so I knew nothing about the area or it's hotels. From the moment we drove up to the hotel until the morning we left, it was a wonderful experience. Wish we hadn't had to leave. The staff are not only professional..more importantly..they are warm and gracious in all the ways they serve their guests. Our package included breakfast each morning in the Panache and dinner one evening...the food was so delicious! Our room..I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW BEAUTIFUL AND SPECIAL!! It was room 322..the Jardin Suite. Wow..we were blessed and surprised...they have done a beautiful job in this room that was once the attic of a home that I think was built in the 1800's (?)..anyway..they kept the integrity of space w/the wide plank wood floors and the ceiling..and still have the modern amenities. I'm unable to give it justice..suffice it to say..it was a lovely suite that made it hard to leave it's beauty and go out to enjoy the sights and sounds and tastes of Quebec City. It's a great location!! We loved it...Thank you Saint-Antoine!!

Everything about this hotel was excellent -- wonderful staff, great location, teriific decor and amazing lounge areas and an outstanding restaurant (pricy for dinner, but reasonable for breakfast)-- with one exception. Our bath room had a very powerful musty smell presumbly caused by water overflowing from the jacuzzi.

Rooms were beautiful, well appointed, and relatively large (stayed in a Luxe room; 411). Bathrooms were huge with very nice soaking oversized tub and separate rain shower. The gym was more than adequate with new machines which were well maintained. Not a single complaint all weekend. To top it off, when the cap told the hotel it would take over 2 hours to get to the airport because of traffic (New France Festival clogging up the roads) the bellhop drove us to the airport in the hotel car (Honda Element) in less than 30 minutes taking backroads etc. Fantastic service!

We stayed at the Chateau Frontenac for two nights prior to our stay at Auberge Saint-Antoine (which was coordinated by our business contact in Quebec). Even our tour guide said the Auberge Saint-Antoine had surpassed the Chateau Frontenac as the premiere hotel in Quebec City. Boy, was she right. Extremely comfortable rooms, large bathrooms (with heated tile floors), and the turndown service was top-notch. The breakfast menu in Panache (their onsite restaurant) was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would definitely stay at the Auberge Saint-Antoine again.
