I've stayed in this Riotel several times and every time is a real pleasure. The location (right on the sea) is great, the two restaurants are superb and the beds are about the most comfortable I've ever slept in. And the service has always been exceptional, with very friendly and welcoming staff. This review is a bit late (almost Xmas... More

Don't believe the publicity. This hotel has to stop charging exorbitant prices for their rooms. We stayed in two Riotel while travelling in Gaspé. They seem to undergo cosmetic renovations instead of proper renovations. Our room at the Bonaventure hotel had a musty smell, the creaking hardwood floors and bad insulation means that you hear your neighbors talk, walk, ....... More

Friendly staff run a smooth ship. Unfortunately, the ship is squished between the main highway and the Baie de Chaleur. We booked a month ahead but still wound up with a disappointingly small (both couldn't walk around at the same time!) room overlooking the highway. We couldn't leave the window open because of the road noise. The air conditioner was... More

This was just a one night stop on our road trip but just like the Riotel at Matane the main thing that stays with me is the friendliness of all the staff we had contact with - without exception. it started with the receptionist and then the waiting staff in the bar and the restaurant carried it on. Just felt... More

For the rates we were charged and for the wonderful website pictures one almost imagines a sprawling Oceanside estate...... No Way! The Bonaventure location resembles a roadside motel picutres we terribly misleading. The rooms were cramped and the family which also arrived when we did also complained of the same. In perce the pictures resemble a wonderful scene on sprawling... More

Hotel clean, staff were great, evening meal great, but the view and the beach were awesome, we listen to the ocean all night, so soothing. Highly recommend this hotel. Make sure you are able to get a sea side room, you will be impressed.

My husband and I stayed at the Riotel Bonaventure after a long drive from Nova Scotia. Thought we'd make this our first pit stop before driving around the beautiful Gaspe Penninsula. We pre-booked the room with a jacuzzi. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and spoke English well. The room was adequate for our purpose and very... More

We had the good fortune to stay at the Riotel Bonaventure on our visit to the Gaspe'. From the staff at the front desk, the dining room staff, and the housekeepers it was a perfect stay. I want to especially praise the staff at the front desk. From the day we checked in, the afternoon of Sept. 5th, they went... More

Stayed one night here en route somewhere else. Booked a family room, with double and single bed, but it was a room with a small double and a sofa bed, not made up. We asked why and we got a frosty shrug, and were told all the linen was inside the sofa as if we were idiots, and to do... More

In short, we would stay there again but not under the same conditions. We had issues, they made amends. We booked several days in advance for one night (2 adults, 2 pre-teens). Booking agent was very helpful in discussing room options that would fit us (would we like a queen with foldout bed, or a King with cot? We booked... More
