We stayed here for two nights In May with our friends during a touring holiday in Gaspesie. It was a memorable experience due to the wonderful team working there and the owner/chef Desmond.
This is a historical inn and we stayed in the "Reine" and "Rustique" rooms. The Reine is like going back in time with the four poster bed and window seats. If you take the Rustique room you will be sharing with a moose head but this all adds to the charm and originality of the place! These are not your usual standard hotel rooms but stand out because of that!
We ate in the restaurant each evening and it was definitely a good decision. The service was professional yet friendly (thank you Real!) and we got good advice about the dishes on offer. The scallops (petoncles) were delicious and the lamb we had on the second night is definitely to be recommended! However the best of all was a lobster bisque made by Desmond and which we all thought to be the best we had ever tasted! Good wine list with very reasonable prices.
Breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked to order with charming service (didnt get the name sorry!).
We all agreed that we had really enjoyed the hospitality at the Wakeham and we would recommend you give it a try if you are in Gaspe!
