“Very Quaint Boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The Hotel Nelligan is wonderfully smallish but not too small a boutique hotel. It is situated right in the heart of Old Montreal, so if you are there on business or pleasure you are well located. (we were there for both) The lobby and restaurant are very plush and charming. You are loured to sit by the fire and enjoy a drink or snacks any time of day. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Because of the location you can walk almost anywhere you would like to go. The food in the restaurant was excellent and so was the service and you are only a few blocks from Marche' La Villette, a local and tourist favorite bakery, cafe'. Great place to eat. And steps from many other great places to eat or have a drink.

The atmosphere at the Nelli is very comfortable and the rooms are large enough. (standard room) Not much of a view in our room, but we didn't spend all that much time in it. Internet was free and worked great anywhere. The bed would give the Weston's a run for their money. Extremely comfortable and the room well laid out. My only complaint was the washroom. For some inexplicable reason the toilet was right across from the shower door which did not allow for the class shower door to fully open. In fact it kept smashing into it. I thought I was going to break it one time. Yet there is this very large space right beside the shower where it looks like the toilet should have gone? I'm not sure if this was just in my room, or standard in the standard rooms, but it looks like the plumbers made a mistake. We also assumed there would be a tub, but alas there was none. My wife prefers the tub in a hotel. But other then that, I would highly recommend the Hotel Nelligan to anyone who graves a smaller but elegant hotel experience.

We stayed a Hotel Nelligan for a night in the middle of November based on trip advisor reviews and my wife's previous stay on a business trip. Excellent service. Beautiful hotel.

My only recommendation would be to plan out parking beforehand. The hotel was on a very narrow street with parallel parked cars. There is a reserved spot for the hotel directly across from the front door - they will run out and valet your vehicle (just wish I knew beforehand so I could have avoided going around the block trying to figure it out).

Overall excellent. Great location, right in old Montreal - very close to many great restaurants and walking distance to great attractions.

Great Hotel, excellent location, beautiful interior spaces, great rooms and other amenities. Just the right size hotel and a memorable experience. The staff was professional and very helpful. Helping us plot a walking trip to see Habitat and the Expo '67 grounds was a treat. It was a wonderful trip to Montreal, though cold and rainy, we had a wonderful time and ran back to the hotel each evening to a great room and other hotel amenities. Will certainly go back there the next time we are in Montreal.
Doug & Pat Z (Seattle, WA) Give the experience and hotel a 5 star.

Room Tip: 4th floor in the newer section. Must be ambulatory as there are steps.

We spent the night in the old montreal for an anniversary. The hotel was so nice. It has a beautiful decor (brick walls... a bit of old in a modern setting). The staff was great and made our stay memorable. We will definitively do this again.

I stayed at Hotel Nelligan back in August and I must say, it was THE best service I have ever received at a hotel. Dan and Mathieu at the front desk handled any and every issue issue I had while staying there. Overall the staff was extremely professional. The accommodations were quite comfortable and the location is just about perfect. It is very close to both the water front and the subway. I hoping to go back to Montreal sometime in the future and I can tell you this is the only place I will stay. Great Value for the rooms and terrific service.

We had the most amazing weekend here visiting Montreal for the first time; I wouldn't have wanted to stay in any other hotel. The ambience was nothing short of perfection. It is cozy yet sophisticated and romantic. The exposed brick was my favorite detail of their beautiful decor and paired with a roaring fire, creates a perfect atmosphere. The staff was so friendly and accommodating which, made all the difference in a new place and unfamiliar language. They made wonderful reccommendations and were so attentive, could not have asked for more. The hotel is also in the best location, surrounded by great restaurants and shops. I cannot wait to revist this beautiful city, especially to stay in this amazing hotel!

Wonderful ambiance, Friendly helpful staff. Thanks Daniel & Natalie. Your we're always there to help out. A terrific location in the heart of old Montreal surrounded with a remarkable range of Restuarants offering a range of cuisine. A block from Notre Dame and the Waterfront.
The Hotel's three heritage buildings have been skillfully interconnected to offer a rich variety of beautifully decorated interiors. A lovely hotel, with a wonderful range of extraordinary room, shapes types and sizes.Each room is unique with furnishings that are sumptuous and warm. Simple room heating controls and operable heritage windows allow the guest to have the room temperature to their personal taste.
The heritage buildings add to the uniqueness. Room locations offer views to the West, North and East. A rare treat! A home away from home. The compliment of both warm welcoming, intimate lobby combined with the lovely bar lounge provides lots of opportunity to relax away from the room. The restaurant is a beautiful addition and again offers choices.
Well done Hotel Nelligan and it's owners and your team. It's obvious that the staff are equally proud to have such a wonderful hotel to share with their guests.
Suggestions. Great time between seasons to check all fittings and furnitures for lose door latches, furniture feet, lightbulbs. Also found the pillows while great for the big king beds for reading too big , or springy plump to use for sleeping.
Keep up the excellent work. Enjoy your staff party. You deserve it.
