We stayed at the Le Vieux Presbytere for four nights in July 2008. The hotel is located on the scenic and rustic Ile D'Orleans which is approximately 30 minutes from downtown Quebec City by auto. The inn is a reflection of its surrounding on the quaint, quiet isle, and is situated between two churches.
Our room was #2, which was on the first floor next to the lounge area, included queen bed and a private bath. The rate also included breakfast in the morning.
All in all, our accomoadations were more than adequate. The room was spacious and clean, decorated with antique-type furniture. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom while, clean and functional, needed a little more lighting in the bathtub area. The chairs in the room were not the most comfortable either. However, we had easy access to the porch which had lawn chairs and a view of the St Lawence river in the distance past the farm fields with livestock grazing. The livestock also had full view of us if we forgot to shut the shutters or shades in the bathroom. The room did not have air coditioning and we found the window difficult to open, but it was cool enough during our visit that this did not matter.
This is not a place that you want to stay if you must remain connected to the world. There was not a phone, television or radio in the room.
The breakfast included in the room rate was served in a separate bright cheery sunroom type area by a very friendly staff. It was plentiful and good, with choices of eggs, crepes, or french toast and plentiful toast, coffee and juice to get your day going. The restaurant is also open in the evening and served a very nice dinner(check with the owner for reservations).
All in all this is a place to stay if you want to explore the Ile D'Orleans or prefer not to stay in the Quebec City, but want to be able to stay within driving distance.
