“Charming B&B”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Just returned home from a 3 night stay at the Maison du Fort. It was without a doubt the most charming place we have ever stayed. The rooms are spotless and the beds are very comfortable. It is conveniently located just steps away from the boardwalk where there is always something to see and in close proximity to restaurants, shopping and many attractions. The inn keeper Marielle was very helpful in suggesting places to eat or visit and was always very accomodating. We can't wait to return to this city and stay here again. One word of advice is to bring a picnic cooler as I do not believe any of the rooms have fridges. Other than that it was an absolutely delightful place to stay

This was our 1st visit to Quebec City and one of the highlights was MAISON DU FORT. Location, location, location! And this B&B was set back in a delightfully, quiet residential area near parks, up from the boardwalk on Saint Lawrence River, and within walking distance of anything you’d want to see in Old Quebec. The owner, Marielle, was a true delight and went out of her way to make us comfortable and serve as concierge extraordinaire. Her homemade morning breakfast “treats” had us saying “Oh-la-la”! And, being our first visit, we had lots of questions, and Marielle had all the answers...always with a smile. We had a beautiful 3rd floor room with large windows that connected us to the Old City sights and sounds. The room was large and so comfortable, noticeably clean from top to bottom, big poster bed, and 2 recliners we’d sink into at the end of an afternoon before dinner, after being out and about all day. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Old Quebec....A+ quality accommodations and A+ service. I know WE will be back! Maison Du Fort...Oh-la-la! Tres Bien!

My partner and I were staying for a few days. Really great location within Old City - walking distance to the boardwalk, downtown shopping, the funicular that takes you down to the ferry and Quartier Petit Champlain. The room was kept clean and quaint - though the smaller rooms are probably meant for just 1 person we managed for 2. Marielle was very friendly and inviting - she even arranged for our taxi to pick us up early the morning we were leaving. It was a pleasure to stay at her hotel.

Our family spent a week at Maison du Fort in late June. Our two rooms were large, comfortable and surprisingly quiet for being in the city. Marielle provided excellent service and extras to make our stay very pleasant. The hotel is located one block from the Citadel, two blocks from the Terrasse Dufferin, near many good restaurants on rue Saint Louis, and has easy access to the lower city. I highly recommend the Maison du Fort to anyone considering staying in old Quebec city.

I stayed here for three nights in July and the room was clean and comfortable. We were able to control the AC unit and it worked well. The bathroom was small with little room to shave or to place toiletries. The water was nice and hot. It was a convenient location because it was quiet being away from pedestrian and vehicle traffic, yet it was a short walk to downtown. If you travel by car, you must park your car in one of the underground garages at the cost of $22 a day. The host is friendly and helpful. The breakfast consisted of various baked goods such as banana bread, berry muffins, and cookies with coffee, orange juice, and tea. They were tasty but it would have been nice to have fresh cut fruit and yogurt added. There also was nothing left out during the afternoon such as water bottles, beverages, hot water for tea and baked goods which is typical in most of the other bed and breakfasts we have stayed in. I feel that is a nice touch when one comes back after site seeing especially because our room did not have an ice bucket or small refrigerator. Overall, it was a good stay but there may be better values out there.

My wife and I stayed at the Maison du Fort during our early July visit in Quebec City. We found the place quiet, convenient, comfortable, and very neat and clean. Marielle was friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to visit, places to eat, and things to do. The inn is within walking distance to anywhere within the city, especially close to the seaway and the Plains of Abraham. We would certainly stay there again.

We spent 5 nights at Maison du Fort. We loved this extremely clean, quiet and comfortable hotel located right behind the Frontenac. Marielle is an excellent, cheerful, knowledgeable innkeeper and goes way out of her way to be hospitable. She recommended excellent dining places and hosted a lovely breakfast of muffins, cookies and coffee, tea and hot chocolate each morning. We would bring a tray to our room and leisurely begin our day! We highly recommend this hotel for an enjoyable stay in old Quebec City.

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartment on the top floor for 4 nights and it was lovely and convenient. We chose...
