We stayed at this lovely, charming, friendly place for a get away weekend in Quebec City. Absolutely the best place we could have chosen and where we have stayed in a long time. We travel a lot and look for small locally-owned boutique hotels since they are often much more to our liking than large chains. This is one of the best. The room was quiet and lovely with terrific linens, clean and very comfortable even in cold weather. The breakfast was very European (which we expected) with delicious croissants, fruit, hard boiled eggs, granola, scrumptious bread for toast and good coffee. The innkeepers and all the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The facility is expanding to the next building so that there will be a few more rooms as well as a place for tea in the afternoon but the construction was not a concern while we were there since it is removed from the current rooms. Parking is across the street in a municipal parking garage that is quite convenient. The location of the hotel is perfect- across from Parliament, within the old city walls, but removed from the hubbub of the tourist part of Vieux Quebec. If you are looking for the ambiance of chains (ie Holiday Inn), or the glitz of the Frontenac (and willing to pay the price), this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a comfortable, quiet, convenient, and charming 'home away from home" this is definitely THE place.
I suspect every room is excellent

Wow, thank you so much for your review and tips! I am thrilled that you noticed our bedding and linens. You are absolutely correct, if you are a client that likes and wants the chain hotel experience, we are probably not the place for you. However, if you are looking to experience the charm and history of Old Quebec, we are the place for you. Unlike most small character properties, we do offer the comforts and luxuries of the better chain hotels like: high quality mattresses, high quality linens, excellent WIFI, flat screen TV's and individual climate control in your room. We have invested heavily in the past few years to make sure we can offer the comforts that travellers expect today, while keeping the boutique charm of a small property. The location is perfect, you are right in the middle of everything. Each room is unique: from petite and charming all the way to spacious and elegant. This allows us to find a fit for every budget. I realize writing a review takes quite a lot of time, and I truly appreciate you doing so. It is because of customers like you that we enjoy our work so much. Thank you so very much for your support! Merci!
