The location cannot be beat! We parked our car (there is free parking, which is a bonus!) and didn't touch it again the whole time we were in Quebec City. The B&B is literally a few minutes walk away from all Old Quebec attractions including the Citadelle and the Plains of Abraham! The breakfast was delicious - in addition to... More

Fabulous location in old Quebec City. Close to restaurants and all tourist sites. Don't need a car as you can walk everywhere. Loved the house with it's old world charm and the breakfast was spectacular, french toast made from croissants with fresh fruit and baked goodies. My wife was very happy as our hostess provided gluten free waffles and pancakes.... More

We stayed in this historic treasure 3 nights in July 2015, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Breakfast was always tasty with great variety including homemade treats. Our hostess Guitta was warm and welcoming and truly made us feel at home. The ambience of the historic building was complimented by our modern European bathroom. The Muzzeralls

This house has a very interesting history, built for James Thomson in the late 18th century: http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/thompson_james_6E.html The location is ideal for explorers of Vieux Québec. It is on a side street in the Upper Town that is close to many restaurants and historic sites, but that is also calm and quiet. My room was comfortable but fairly basic. Weak... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Maison Historique James Thompson B&B in May, 2015. What a great find! The location couldn't be more perfect - close walking to all sites in Historic Quebec - just inside the St. Louis gate. Guitta is a wonderful host - we took a wrong turn coming into town, called Guitta who immediately came and... More

The bedrooms are all amazing. The breakfasts are divine. The location is immeasurable. The price is unbeatable. The host is the most wonderful mother of 2, who only has a big heart and compassion for all her guests. 5 stars are hard to achieve but the overall experience is inexplicable until you have lived it! This is by far the... More

We had called and arranged for the main floor bedroom due to several infirmities, but had to ascend the outside steps to enter the house- not a problem for me, but two more flights would have been. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. Breakfast was excellent- much better that that at any other B&B we've stayed at on... More

The James Thompson house is located in Québec's old town. All main sights are in walking distance. The tasty breakfast is served in a friendly and spacious breakfast room. Our room had a really comfy bed and even a TV.

What a wonderful B&B! We arrived quite late (or early, depending on your perspective) and Guitta, our host, was responsive and very accommodating. Our room was perfect -- both the beds were very comfortable and it seemed like there were pillows for every type of sleeper. I'd return for the bathtub alone. Our breakfasts were healthy and hearty. I felt... More

Arriving in this renovated historical house in the heart of the VILLE HAUTE in Quebec city is simply wonderful! We stayed 2 nights on one of the rooms on the 2nd floor. Spacious room, excellent bed, great bathroom, cosy antichamber. And the innkeper, Guitta, beats it all. She is a charming young lady, she keeps you company during breakfast and... More
