Good location with access to everything by walking. Friendly staff. BUT - walls are paper thin so you hear everything (and I mean everything) from adjoining rooms. Any movement by guests in their rooms or up and down the outside stairs is heard in the room. There is no air conditioning so open windows make it worse. Bring ear plugs.

This hotel is perfectly situated for a walk to the harbor, a run to the little market and to many of the Tadoussac's restaurants. We are not French speakers but the staff helped us muddle through. They were quite accommodating. Our room was tiny but clean and comfortable with a view of the bay. They make great use of their... More

We stayed one night. Staff was very warm and welcoming. Room was small, but well-appointed - clean and updated. Beautiful view of the bay. No breakfast -- but Keurig coffeemaker in room. Friendly cat in lobby.

We stayed one night in this hotel. With the view over the bay, not much of a view. The toilet light is together with a fan, that is very noise. You can hear other peoples fans during night. And In the middle of the night, someone with a key entered our room after knocking, we were sleeping. In the morning... More

This hotel was great for what we needed, we needed a place to freshen up in and sleep, The location is great for walking down to the harbour for the whale watching cruises that you can book at the hotel or in Tadoussac itself. (if you are wanting the smaller zodiac boats, they leave from Baie St Catherine) The Rooms... More

Very well located across the street to take the whale cruise in Tadoussac. Very quiet, very clean and people at the reception were friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast is included and you choose from a menu.

We stayed here for one night to go Whale watching. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and also arranged for the tour, plus made restaurant recommendations. In the evening they offered a complimentary BBQ with hot dogs, roasted corn and soft drinks - a nice touch. Guest could mingle and sit in the front yard furnished with tables, chairs,... More

Right at the edge of 'downtown' Tadoussac, meaning very convenient but none of the thousands of tourists passing down your window. About 10 steps away from restaurants, a supermarket, and the road down the harbour. And with lovely view of the bay, if lucky enough to stay in the second building. The hotel consists of several buildings. The first one... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night while in Tadoussac. We got a small room with a washroom and no view . I found it dated, and pretty ugly to be honest. There is a sink in the room ( not in the washroom) which I found odd. The washroom itself is very small and has wooden slats around... More
