“wifi doesn't work”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

As it happened to other guests, we found an envelope at the door with "instrucctions" inside, so come in, and do-it-yourself. We felt simply "alone" there... this provides some advantages sometimes, but no one could help us carring our bags, in such a narrow entrance and through the stairs, because nobody was there, except on breakfast time... coffee was from "yesterday", and the rest quite normal. Wifi doesn't work inside the rooms. Nasty TV, extra small toilette. The location is good, if you really want to see "quebec inside walls"...

Room Tip: better go to another place

The location of this B&B is excellent, between the Frontenac and the Citadel. The street is quiet with the occasional clop-clop of horse and carriages going by. Victoria is very helpful and the breakfast excellent. Our room was beautiful.

Quiet location close to everything. The very friendly hostess gave us wonderful breakfasts and great tips on what to do. She graciously arranged a taxi for our very early morning departure. Room was quaint and clean. Definitely recommended!

During the "New France" Festival we enjoyed ort stay for 3 nights in this lovely B & B. The rooms were large, the hostess was incredibly helpful and the morning breakfast delicious and inventive. Yes the bathrooms were small but each room had their own for great convenience. The location could not be better.

Room Tip: Room number 1 if you have trouble climbing stairs.

This B&B has an unbelievable location, just 2 blocks from the Chateau Frontenac and in the midst of the old city. Everything was within easy walking distance. Our room had lovely brick walls and decor. It was exceptionally clean. Breakfast prepared and served by Victoria was delicious. We highly recommend it and will go back the next time we are in QC.

Room Tip: Our room was in the front of the b+b and on the street and was very quiet.

Visiting the old city on Quebec and staying in a B&B means staying in an old house. The location was very good, the food was okay, but the room was an adventure.

Our two couples occupied two of the three upstairs rooms. Way back when someone decided to turn this house into an inn, they had to construct bathrooms in each room. Start with a moderate size room, carve out a very tight shower, toilet and sink and you have a bath so small that this reviewer had to step out into the rest of the bedroom just to have enough space to maneuver a towel for drying off.

The challenge of moving luggage from the entrance to the upstairs bedrooms involves navigating steep, narrow stairs that curve sharply near the top.

Breakfast is served in a smallish basement level. There is no sitting area in any other common area.

On a brighter note, the innkeeper is very pleasant and the location is a strong point...and needs to be since the suggested parking area is blocks away and runs $18 Canadian per day.

B&B de la Fontaine was a perfect place for us to spend our week in Quebec City. The room was wonderful (room 2 on the first floor) and very quaint. Our hostess Victoria was so accommodating and welcoming and by the end of the week we felt like old friends. Her breakfasts were varied with many choices and delicious. She did an amazing job of making us feel so comfortable and giving us advice about restaurants and things to see. Her B&B is centrally located to everything. No where took more than 15-30 minutes to walk to, but her home is off the main streets and the bustle of the city so it was quiet but so close to any activity. I would not hesitate to recommend Victoria's B&B for your vacation.

Room Tip: We didn't see the other rooms, but room 2 is spacious with a sitting area that has a pull out co...
