We booked on short notice (24 hrs) for a stay on Thanksgiving night. We were the only guests and the owners were still out of town when we arrived. They gave us instructions on how to get to our room. It is a very quaint property full of interesting furniture and floral patterns. Our room was a reasonable size and... More

Our room was very nice. I think there was an even better one with a view of the bay but ours was all we needed. Our hosts were wonderful. Great people to talk to about food or just about life. Our meal featured haddock, cooked in two different ways to accommodate an allergy of one guest. Great place to stay... More

The Hotel Paulin has been in the Paulin family for generations and run by proprietors Gerard and Karen. It's a luxurious little inn type hotel in the charming town of Caraquet, New Brunswick. The food is exquisite, prepared by chef Karen. The hotel specializes in New Brunswick produce and products, such as cheese from the fromagerie in Caraquet, and wine... More

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the old-world ambience, the beautiful food, and the charming hospitality of the owners. Karen created delicious and elegant dinners that we all enjoyed so much. The rooms are beautiful, very well appointed and very clean. I will be coming back to this lovely hotel

Everything about the Hotel Paulin is first-rate and then some. We have stayed here annually for nearly 20 years while attending the Lameque International Baroque Festival, which always includes one evening for a leisurely dinner presented by Gerard and Karen, an event in itself. However, I sometimes wonder why we are usually the only New Brunswick anglophone guests. The others... More

Having read that this was one of the best places to stay in New Brunswick we decided to try it out this weekend (13th June) and I can confirm that we were not disappointed. We were only able to stay for 1 night but it was memorable for all the right reasons. The hotel is a wonderful historic property and... More

We stayed at the Hotel Paulin nine years ago and vowed to go back if we ever passed that way again. Although Karen was away attending personal matters, Gerard more than made us welcome. The rooms are very clean and although the furnishings are new, they have the look of a century ago. We will undoubtedly stay there again, hopefully... More

We have been travelling to Caraquet for almost 20 yrs just to enjoy a 3 or 4 day stay at the Hotel Paulin - one of the last family-owned hotels in the province. It's history goes back over a hundred years. Hosts Gerard Paulin and Karen Mersereau are very gracious to their guests. Each room is tastefully decorated and spotlessly... More

We just returned from another great stay at Hotel Paulin. The room was beautiful with a nice view, a comfortable bed and a large modern bathroom that was spotless clean. The dinner was delicious. It featured local oysters, cheeses and mushrooms. The preparation and service were excellent. The evening was topped off by sipping a liqueur in the living room... More

Built in the early 1900's the Hotel Paulin is still family owned and operated. Beautifully furnished with richly upholstered pieces and the suites expertly decorated, the bathrooms are well appointed with updated fixtures and spa amenities. Our king size bed was supportive and nicely made with a good selection of pillows and covers. We chose a top floor rear suite... More
