My family went to the Winter Carnival in Quebec recently and stayed at Le Manoir d'Auteuil upon the recommendation of a friend. The hotel is run by a great couple who are devoted to the comfort of their guests. We were a good sized group and the staff was very attentive to our every need, always willing to stop and chat for a moment or answer our many questions.
From the outside the hotel reminded me of a Boston brownstone and was located two blocks from the carnival. Once inside, the building seemed so much larger than its outside appearance. The hotel has been recently renovated and there are rooms to fit every taste and budget. We saw many of the rooms during our stay and were delighted that they were all different, much like a B&B, with a common art deco theme running throughout, and all beautifully and tastefully appointed. My husband and I stayed in one of the economy European rooms on the fourth floor and found it to be very comfortable, right down to the new mattress and cushy pillows. I don't really like staying in hotels, but felt right at home here because it was so clean and the staff was so friendly. (Incidentally, the photos of the rooms on the website really didn't do them justice.)
Now, for the best part. Each morning I awoke to the smell of homemade croissants wafting up to my room all the way on the fourth floor! In all honesty, it is the one thing I miss most about our three-night stay! "Ou est les croissants?" I was heard saying when we got home. :-) A continental breakfast was included and was served in the cute breakfast area downstairs, but offered more than the typical continental breakfast--freshly baked quiches, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, and plain and chocolate croissants were among the traditional offerings. Everything was fresh and tasty and we were happy to be so well fortified for our busy days.
The hotel just opened up a new bar and we were lucky enough to be there for the grand opening. Dan and Linda treated the guests to a lovely cheese platter and some fine wines. We truly enjoyed their company and their hospitality.
The only downside to our stay was that the hotel, in an attempt to remain authentic, had no elevator and we really had to plan our trips so that we wouldn't forget anything and have to make another jaunt up the stairs. The good news is that we both needed the exercise and welcomed the opportunity to work off those croissants.
We had such a wonderful time at Le Manoir d'Auteuil and will definitely stay there when we return to Quebec. How can you beat staying at a hotel with reasonable prices that makes you feel like you're home?
