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

This is a charming B&B. Stayed 4 days, 3 nights during March, off-season. Guitta, our hostess, was so helpful with the booking beforehand. On the mornings we did not rush off to sight-see, we had long, delightful discussions with Guitta. Winter visitors, be advised that boots must be left in downstairs hall (wish I didn't have to put on cold... More

You need to pack slippers as bots have to be left near the front door. If you have any kind of immobility do not think of staying here as there are steps to the front door and steep, narrow dangerous stairs leading to the bedrooms. We had two flights to climb and had to carry our suitcases ourselves to the... More

We spent 4 days at the B&B during Carnival. The location is within walking distance to Lower Quebec, the Plains of Abraham, and lots of restaurants. The house was larger than I expected and we had a large room on the third room with a private bathroom. The breakfasts were excellent and generous. Guitta was very friendly and spoke both... More

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at the B & B. Our spacious room was charming, with many antiques and historical aspects. The bed was a high 4-poster queen-sized with crisp cotton sheets and plenty of extra pillows and blankets. Being a historical building, and our visit in winter, there was a bit of a draft from the windows, but... More

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
