We recently (July/14) at Chez Sam and were rewarded with a great experience. We were in the area for whale-watching, just like everybody else. Chez Sam was a better option for us than staying in one of the many Tadoussac hotels across the river that cater to the whale-watching tourists. The home-cooked meals by Sonia were very tasty (note: limited... More

Booked this based on trip advisor reviews. This place is some thing very different. Bit like a B & B living in someone's home. We had a front bedroom with shower and toilet squeezed into the bedroom. All worked ok but would say its a one night stay place with hand luggage. Sonia is a perfect host and we ate... More

Charming little spot we happened upon after getting off the ferry. Very warm, welcoming and hospitable hosts (Sonia & Pierre?) who pour every ounce of passion they have into running this hotel/restaurant. Everything is very fresh and homemade - it literally tastes like food I'd be served at a good friend's place for a low-key but memorable dinner party. Great... More

We arrived at dinner time, to very friendly and accommodating staff, and the most delicious dinner (cassoulet) we had in our whole 10 day trip in Quebec - and a quaint room (our room did have a private washroom). In the morning we saw whales from breakfast! There is a pool table, lots of public spaces (sitting areas) and bonfires... More

If you prefer an individual experience to joining the tourists crowds, then forget Tadoussac and go to Baie Sainte Catherine instead! Just across the Saguenay river from Tadoussac, it's much smaller and quieter - and Café and Auberge Chez Sam are making it even more pleasant. Both the café and the B&B have a slightly improvised charm, everything is made... More

Well in this part there is not much choice. Is either them or cross the street and the other. Sam was cheaper, so the choice was easy. They basically do everything. - Receptionist ticked - Need to book whale watching tickets. They do that too ... ticked - Need something to eat, they do a restaurant. He serves, she cooks...... More

Chez Sam is one of those places that stick to your memory, no matter how many hotels you have seen from the in- and outside. We found this place by chance when we were looking for a place to stay in Baie Sainte-Catherine, after having checked various B&Bs. From the outside, the place looks like I would expect the place...

Very few times I felt like writing a review of a hotel, but I was very impress by the warm and gentle service we had received at Chez Sam Hotel & Restorant. The rooms were nice and very clean, the food at the restaurant was very good and the service super. When we had to leave, we were so sad... More
