“Best Hotel Ever!!!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Upgraded room option, great pool, great restaurant, and outstanding staff! Stayed with a toddler and had a blast. Second time staying here and both times were great. Very helpful staff as well. Spa Nordik is a great getaway option too.

Room Tip: Go for the upgrade

This hotel's excellent rooms are only surpassed by its friendly staff that are willing to help as needed. I had a broken foot and was in crutches. The staff was readily available to help my wife and I carry our luggages in and out at check in and out times with no extra charges and a sincerely care giving smile. Was not able to enjoy the pool, but sent very nice with a slide for the kids, spa services and two restaurants available to your liking. Also the available mini fridge in the room was nice too.

Stayed here on the way to the east coast. Staff were polite. It is easy to find off the highway. We had a room with teo double beds. The only real complaint I had was that the washrooom area was very small and with a low ceiling. The shower temperature was extremely difficult to control and was not very responsive. Water prrssure was weaker. A word of caution if you are from the city, food is a hassle to get later at night in this town, but the hotel quickly recommended a place for us

For anyone who has every done the central Canada to maritimes dash, this is an ideal overnight spot. An eclectic décor, a cozy resto bar and decent enough rooms (some with hot tubs), this hotel has a nice pool, welcoming lobby and free parking. The price isn't bad and over the years has become a mainstay for our family as we trek across Canada. Riviere du Loup is a charming town off the beaten path and the hotel itself is centrally located off the main highway and has some of the staple restaurants, pharmacies and other amenities one would expect. A real treat.

Hotel quite pleasant, but no tea bags, only coffee, and no refrigerator in our room, although web site advertises them in all rooms. Front Office staff were very helpful, and pool area is nice. Overall, would recommend this hotel for the price.

I was in town for a performance so I only stopped in for one night. Front desk staff was super friendly and didn't mind speaking English to me because I'm not fluent even though my group is mostly Francophones. Room was clean and had a Samsung flatscreen, wasn't expecting that. I saw there was an outside heated pool but I believe it was only available for extra cost to the spa. And also want to say the audience to our show that night was just delightful, too bad I didn't get to explore it a little further.

We stayed here one night, on our way from NB. We had a wonderful, clean room, great dinner and breakfast. We found the staff polite and welcoming, if mildly amused by our stilted, high school French (which wasn't required, but makes us feel good!). We would definitely stay there each road trip between Ontario and NB.

Room Tip: It's worth it to get the Jacuzzi after a long road trip!
