1st time staying in a B&B. Didn't know what to expect. After we arrived the hostess left us to our own defences. She actually left the house shortly after we arrived. We didn't quite know what to think of the whole thing. Also we were quite hungry when we arrived and had a hard time to get her to help... More

Our hostess Guitta welcomed us in her lovely home, showed us to our very large beautiful room that had adjoining bathroom. The beds were so comfortable with crisp clean cotton bedding. Guitta is an artist and her paintings add a touch of warmth and exoticism to a beautiful old house. The breakfasts are amazing with fresh fruits, hot croissants and... More

The room was Ok but a bit disconcerting to have paintings of her family in there and all over the house, we were supposed to have a fridge but couldn't find one only to be told it was in the closet, It smelled musty so did not use it. The internet was out of use for nearly 3 days and... More

Our 3rd floor walk up room was charming, with deep claw foot tub and double dormer windows and free parking. Immaculately clean, and quiet although it is in the heart of Old Quebec. May be some issues with internet connections and TV use, but in a charming 200 yr old building, that wasn't a problem for us. The breakfasts were... More

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
