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

Dear Ode de Joy family, Thank you for your kind review. I also had a wonderful time hosting and meeting your family. The music is sealed on the wall of this house forever in memory of your young daughter playing the piano filling this house with joys. Thank you. 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

The first time I visited James Thompson House was nine years ago and I have stayed there during all seasons. Guita is a warm, sincere, considerate and generous host who was raised in old Quebec and who takes great care to know each guest. Her home is located inside the walls of the old city beside the gates to the... More

We stayed in the red room up one flight of stairs and it had 2 queen beds. As others have noted, one bed is very firm and the other soft. There is no television in this room. It has a private bathroom with a bath and a hand-held shower. The artwork of Guitta’s that is displayed everywhere is overwhelming and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Maison Historique James Thompson, it was very central, excellent breakfast, and a nice hot shower. The room was disappointing in that the TV only showed DVD's and the coffee machine was there but no cups, coffee etc.

We recently (August, 2013) enjoyed a wonderful stay at the beautiful and historic Maison James Thompson. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was immaculate. The atmosphere was relaxing and breakfast was delicious. However, you could probably find all these things at almost any B&B or hotel. But what you won't find anywhere else in the... More
