This hotel had a slightly confused identity. It couldn't seem to decide if it was a good-value travellers motel or a high-end 5* establishment.
THE GOOD: This hotel seemed reasonable value, at $105/night in Oct for a River view room with 2 beds. It was clean (infact so clean there was an overpowering smell of bleach in the room when we checked in). Great view if you are on the river side. Beds were reasonably comfortable and of a similar standard to what you might expect at a value inn, like a Comfort Inn or Travelodge etc
THE NEGATIVE STUFF: No in room tea & coffee making facilities - crazy in this day & age. No ice machine, you have to ask front desk to open the bar & get some - a really minor point but annoying nonetheless. No public elevator - there's a service one for your suitcases but it's stairs otherwise. There is nothing within walking distance, fine if you have a car.
Our main complaint with this hotel was the restaurant - it was pitched as a high end gastro restaurant with prices to match. It needs to be a family style restaurant with good quality sensibly priced home-cooked food. If it had been we would have gladly eaten there. Because it was so expensive & fancy food fare we had to drive into La Baie, and found a great local restaurant for half the price but the hassle of the drive. We DID have breakfast at the hotel restaurant for convenience but to be honest we had much better breakfasts at the MIKE's chain of restaurants for several $ less.
Overall, this hotel was OK - if they provide coffee makers and make their restaurant menu & pricing sensible family food fare we would go back again. Without these things, doubtful.
