As a Grade French Immersion student, my daughter asked if on our next holiday, could we go somewhere where she could practice her French. My friend and I seized the opportunity to take our daughters for an extended weekend getaway to Quebec City in the off season. Both girls have been studying the explorers and in particular Samuel de Champlain so this hotel seemed like a logical choice .... and a great choice it was!
To begin, we received a reduced rate because it was off season. Then when we arrived, not only did they accommodate us with an early check-in, the young lady at the desk decided to give us a bigger room ... complete with a small kitchenette, at no additional cost. The room was on the top floor of the older section and was so quaint with slanted ceilings and traditional quilts on the bed. We didn't use the kitchen facilities but for four of us, the extra space was greatly appreciated. On Saturday night when it rained making evening exploration less than desirable, we made good use of the table eating snacks and playing cards with our daughters.
The continental breakfast was quite adequate and the dining area very pleasant. The hotel staff was exceptionally helpful and both restaurants they recommended fit the bill perfectly.
The hotel is very centrally located on a not too busy street. The walks to the Chateau and shopping areas were up and down hills but that is to be expected in Quebec.
On Sunday, before heading to the airport, we rented a car for a few hours and made our way to Montemorency Falls and the Church of Ste Anne de Beaupre. We also took a quick drive over the bridge to Iles D'Orleans just to see the fall colours on our return trip. Cost of the car rental was less than the cost of a taxi to the airport.
All in all it was a great weekend and the hotel was outstanding. I would highly recommend it.
