Lovely old mansion now under new management. Room comfortable with old antique furniture. bathroom adequate. smallish hand basin set quite low but everything worked. High speed internet worked well. Breakfast was a one choice offering of French toast and bacon. I could not get eggs or whole wheat toast. I had learned the night before where the selection of teas... More

This old mansion-converted inn has a charming atmosphere with lots character and the hospitable service added a nice homely touch as well, making our visit especially comfortable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with beautiful antique interior design and decor, in addition to modern necessities and appliances. There is also a nice common lounge area and separate candle-lit dining area... More

If you're looking for more character and charm than the chains provide, at around the same rates, this is the place: a lovely old mansion conveniently located between Queen's and downtown on a quiet treed street. Yes, its layout is higgledy-piggledy, and the rooms are far from the standardized geometry of the chains, but that's part of the charm: you... More

The hotel is conveniently located for anyone visiting Queen's University. It is a little outdated which is often portrayed as "charming". Fact is that the room's floors are no level anymore and that the ceiling comes awfully close to your head when searching for light. Breakfast provided is great though and atmosphere is charming. Parking is provided. If you prefer... More

Thank you for taking time to write Trip Advisor We noticed it was from 2012 in Dec. ?? We have no doubt there are some unlevel floors , since the Inn is 153 years old and is register as an Historic Property. Although I have never taken a level to check 23 rooms to prove that.

The Hochelaga Inn is steeped in history and is perfectly situated whether you're in Kingston on business, as a tourist or visiting Queen's University. We enjoyed our stay and we're impressed with the friendly and attentive service. Our room was also quite comfortable but on the smaller side (we did go for a less expensive room). The breakfast was good... More

Jill and I love the beautiful and charming heart of historic Kingston. Hochelaga Inn is part of that. It is situated on a lovely historic street in the heart of Kingston, close to a large park. There was an English classic car show in the park one day we were there. We were warmly greeted by the owner when we... More

We went back for our tenth anniversary and we just went again for our 23rd anniversary. It happened to be my husband's 25th reunion weekend from Queens as well. Almost the whole... More
