Reviewed 15 January 2012

There was a three-floor climb with our suitcases, there was a 5-minute walk from the car park, and the street sounds were a bit noisy for us rural folks the first night. Everything else was well over the top and the hotel was a most pleasurable place to stay. We will stay there again!
The walking accessibility from here around the old city was perfect -- didn't need the car for three days! The proprietor was most helpful and enriched our stay. We chose the room on the top floor because we fell in love with it from the online info and were very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: The top floor was the most expensive but not by a whole lot and it really was gorgeous! The views fr...

Just the same great place as it was four years ago, except the weather is better! My family has stayed in the large room at the top of the hotel both times, and loved every bit, from the decor to the beds you just do not want to leave, not to mention the great hostess. This hotel has trancended ordinary hotels so become something so much more, a perfect home away from home and base of operations for exploring Quebec City.

Room Tip: Top room is worth the 52 stairs needed to get up to it.

My friend and I spent 5 nights at Masion du Fort in August and cannot wait to return. It was everything we hoped for and more...a cozy retreat with personality and charm where our room included a comfortable sitting area. We loved our views of the old town, the knowledge that absolutely everything was in walking distance, convenient breakfast trays that we could enjoy in our room, and friendly advice from Marielle. Having experienced summer, perhaps we'll plan a winter trip...but it's not as though we need an excuse to return. Five nights was not enough!

Room Tip: Room #6 is a great choice for a girls' trip! It has 2 large beds and a spacious sitting area wi...

Have stayed twice@Le Maison du Fort , with owner Marielle & it's been great each time. It is perhaps as consistently clean a room as I've experienced. Have also stayed across the park at the nearby Chateau Frontenac, which was very nice in that large hotel somewhat pretentious way, but Maison du fort is functionally the same location, cleaner,quieter,less hectic for less than half the daily rate; I have not been back to Le CHateau since discoverring Maison du Fort. Marielle & staff are wonderful & certainly as helpful as the concierge at Le CHateau ( & less rushed. Maison was wonderfully private & quiet since just a 1/2 block away from the more active square are of the "upper" old city. Marielle's home baked continental breakfasts are a pleasant morning surprise. WE'll be back !

This small hotel is truly a gem in the heart of the old city! Beautiful, cozy, spotless. And it comes complete with morning pastries and two charming cats. Marielle is a wonderful host, full of information, advice, and fun. This is a special hotel, absolutely perfect!

Room Tip: Loved #5! Doesn't have a view but it has a little sitting area that was delightful.

From the time I arrived late last Sat. night til my early morning departure, Mauriel was there to take care of like a well liked relative. The hotel was centrally located, clean, cozy and just perfect. The continental brkfst consisted of homemade breads and muffins. She made wonderful dinner recommendations too. I had a perfect experience staying here and would not hesitate to return.
