My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Le Clos Saint Louis in mid June.
Situated just inside the St. Louis Gate, the location is excellent for touring historic landmarks and sampling the fabulous cuisine of le Vieux Quebec. Parking is arranged behind the hotel for an extra fee, which was well worth it.
This is a beautiful old Victorian hotel with long winding staircases and comfortable four poster beds. The well appointed rooms are immaculately kept and provided a oasis of calm after a long day of touring the Old City - especially loved the whirlpool bath!
But the heart of this hotel was the owner, Ghislaine Donais who greeted guests at breakfast like they were family. Her custom made breakfasts were delightful and attest to her passion to please her guests. The concierge, Paul, also warmly offered information on local restaurants and not to be missed historic sites. We were even provided with information for a biking trail along the St. Lawrence and photo opportunities in the floral gardens of the Plains of Abraham.
For culinary treats: try the French Onion Soup at Conti Caffe, lunch at Le Petit Cochon Dingue with its "to die for" sugar pie, and the rabbit at Le Lapin Sauté.
While this hotel was a true gem, it may not be suitable for people with mobility issues as there are long winding staircases and no elevator. Even the front door to the hotel is accessed by several steep steps. However, our suitcases were magically taken up to the second floor for us, which was greatly appreciated. There are also several rooms available on the main level.
We sincerely hope to return in the future and will recommend this lovely boutique hotel to family and friends. Merci beaucoup à Ghislaine et à Paul!
