Plus for this B&B: location, good breakfasts, comfortable bed, and parking included. Now for the minus side --- In the website pictures, the porch is clearly painted a crisp white. In reality, the white paint is worn off. A foreshadowing ... Hospitality: Upon arrival, daughter suggested I take off my shoes and leave them in the hall downstairs when I... More

You are very fortunate if you are able to book a room at Maison Historique James Thompson. The delicious breakfasts include a fresh fruit salad, homemade croissants and then your choice of made to order eggs, sausage, french toast, pancakes, etc. We stayed five nights and Gita baked a different pastry each morning. The rooms are huge with beautiful woodwork,... More

This summer was our second stay that Gite and Greg's bed and breakfast. They treat us like family -even better than some of my family. Gite's breakfast is legendary with the home-baked croissants, waffles, bacon, eggs, etc. The baking makes her corner of old Quebec have an aroma of quaint French village. Gina and I would not think of staying... More

The historical building was amazing. The walk through Old Quebec in not to be missed. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was very good. If you are a history buff staying here in comfort and "in" history is great. We would return and recommend this B&B.

Our first visit to Quebec City was made all the better by our stay at this fantastic little hotel. Our third floor accommodation was more like a suite, with room to read or watch a movie in 3D! Guitta makes the best breakfasts, makes every effort to please the guests and provides sightseeing tips. The house cat, Sparta, was the... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at The James Thompson House the last weekend of Winter Festival. Guitta was a wonderful hostess and provided lovely breakfasts with fresh fruit, pastries and a variety of entrees all accompanied with maple syrup. The house is well maintained and is a great historic experience. Inside the walls of Old Quebec and an... More

My wife, daughter and I just got back from a winter vacation in Quebec city. What a beautiful place. We stayed at the James Thompson house for three days and had a fantastic experience. It's located in the upper part of the old city and is within walking distance of all of the sites. The rooms are clean and spacious,... More

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights in June, 2013. It was a great experience! Quebec became one of our most wonderful places we've ever visited and surely a part of this experience was due to the place where we stayed. Besides not meeting Greg, Guitta was very friendly and helpful everyday we stayed there. We get to... More

Thank you for taking your time to write a review and for your kind thoughts. I share your observation about the creaking of the 200 years old house. I cringe every time I hear the floor's noises. I am going to buy many bottles of baby powder and spread them over those floors tomorrow, I heard that it diminishes the... More

You can walk to the Plains of Abraham or along Rue Saint-Jean to find the only 'Timmies' in the old City amongst the restaurants and shops. At this location there is no need for a car and you will get an excellent workout walking up and down the hills!!! The house is clean and well kept.

We read the trip advisor reviews on this one and almost didn't stay here but are so glad we did! If you are looking for modern and swanky this isn't it! But it is the perfect location for seeing Quebec City - we were able to walk to everything. And it is an historic property, lovingly maintained - charming and... More

Thank you for your review and observations. Yes, the greatest gifts of all is the encountering and exchanging with our fellow humans. Most people are beautiful and many times I cry with tear of happiness because I witness the generosities of my fellow guests. At time when it is difficult Gods always send beautiful souls to lift me up again.... More
