I found this B&B on the internet and thought the #2 rating in all of Quebec City was a good sign and it was!! We just came back from a long weekend away and we found our new favorite place to stay in Old Quebec. We stayed in room 11 as there were 4 of us...2 adults, 2 kids.. (there was one other room that could accomodate 4 people but it was booked) and it was up on the top floor. So if you have problems walking, don't book this room as there were about 3 flights of stairs to climb but for us it was perfectly fine. Room 11 is on a floor all by itself so it's very private and very quiet, we didn't hear the rooms on the other floors being cleaned in the morning. It's like an apartment with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a sink in one of the bedrooms and a kitchen.
Marielle is the owner and such a warm, inviting and knowledgeable person! We will stay here again largely because of her!
Breakfasts consisted of tea, juice, coffee, hot chocolate, pastries, muffins, etc. We enjoyed the breakfasts and it was just enough for us so that we didn't have to eat all 3 meals at restaurants.
The location of the B&B was perfect too. You are steps away from the Chateau Frontenac, a nice park and all the shops and restaurants were within a short walk.
We will be back and I highly recommend Maison du Fort!! We miss it already!
