Caroline at the B&B is very nice and approachable, and speaks good english as well as french. We stayed for one night in the room on the 3rd floor, which is a trek (lots of flights of stairs) but worth it if you want some privacy. This is very much a B&B that is also part of someone's home; there are public places and not so public places. Our landing had a bathroom that was not en suite but was pretty much ours, there was one other room on this landing but it was always closed. There was a lovely sitting area as well with some TV which we never used. The place is lovingly decorated and taken care of, and Caroline is an excellent hostess. Breakfast was delicious, light, a great start to the day but it is not something you will be able to go for hours on. It's just a start -- scrummdelicious stuffed french toast and a yoghurt & fruit dish that was to die for. The location was good, just a little walk and your into old quebec, but you truly did feel like you were in a french city. Lovely.
Downsides: The parking was difficult and you may want to rent a space, it is a challenge. The bathroom did not provide the ability to take a bath though it had a clawfoot tub; we managed to find a way anyway by moving a few things around and using a washcloth as a drain stopper. This would be good since you're doing so much walking up and down hilly streets, and the dawgs do get tired. Beautiful colors in there though.
Staying at this B&B was a very good decision, we would do it again. It's a great place if you want an authentic experience.
