The maitre d'hôtel, extremely attentive and trying his best (by himself with two quite unefficient young people by his side, so quite a challenge when you open the wine bottle between typing two bills ....) is the only positive part of our latest (and last) dinner there....he will leave at the end of the season anyway. Amuse bouche was a... More

What a stay! We were in a room overlooking the terrace and the St.Lawrence and could not have asked for a more delightful setting for our two night stay before driving to Quebec city and then deriving to to airport to fly home to the UK.! This hotel is sheer delight! The room was fantastic, the bed incredibly comfortable and... More

This was a completely random selection. We wanted an upscale pet friendly, high end hotel within a seven hour drive. From the initial telephone inquiry to check out, our stay was delightful. Our room overlooked the St Lawrence and it was magical just laying in bed watching the lights of the ships go by at night, In the morning we... More

We spent a beautiful fall week-end at this peaceful place. The rooms facing the St-Lawrence offer a gorgeous view and you can enjoy a lovely terrace where to take your aperitif, watching the sun set or sunrise, with your coffee... The location allows you to visit this incredible region, where Mother Nature is very generous. The hotel closes from end... More

Regular be back customers, due to life circumstances, we had not come back to La Pinsonniere since the owners wife passed on. I remember the owners being very present welcoming their guests and assuring A1 service. That s what kept us coming back. The service, the dining experience on its own was indeed dignified for Royalty. We never felt exploited... More

When we want to pampered and relax this is where we go. A gorgeous setting in a beautiful part of Canada. You can spend a day hiking, taking a boat cruise, enjoying the spa or just sitting and reading a book while looking out on the St.Lawrence.

In my limited experience as a world traveler, I have learned that, at the moment of reservation, a file is created. This file of course is confidential. When as a guest of a hotel, you have specific needs, specific requirements, specific details; when we pay what we pay, in a hotel like La Pinsonniere, I never assume that employees will... More

My girlfriend and I spent an amazing week end in La Malbaie, thanks to the wonderful staff of La Pinsonniere. We were taken in charge from our arrival to our departure. Our room was huge and modern with a breathtaking view of the St-Laurent river. It is a great place to break from reality! Calm place, super comfy with great... More

La Pinsonniere is a wonderful place to relax. The view is amazing! Great place to get away from it all! There are a lot activities to do in and around La Malbaie and the hotel staff was very helpful is helping us setting these activities. The restaurant was very romantic.

We were the only people in the hotel. We sat outside and read . We waited 15 minutes and no one came out to serve us. My husband had to go in and ask young girl. She was not happy to be bothered. We ordered appetizers and she did not bring plates or napkins. We had to go find her... More
