“Welcoming Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We had a wonderful night stay and look forward to returning. Our room was comfortable and decorated lovely, the bathroom was spacious and all were very clean. Jacques and Sylvie were great host! We enjoyed our time spent with them and the delicious breakfast they prepared. Perfect location for sightseeing the city and water. Beautiful garden attached for a glass (or bottle) of wine!!

As many people may know already, Jacques & Sylvie's Hayden Wexford House has overall excellent reviews. We also found the reviews to be promising and after our three nights of stay, we realized this was indeed the case! I don't want to repeat what others have already wrote, but with its close vicinity to the older part of Quebec city and unique antique interior that made everything more consistent with its surroundings, companied by extremely friendly people, I highly recommend Wexford house to be in your list of options if you're planning to visit Quebec city.

Oh, and most importantly, every guest room now has its own PRIVATE BATHROOM! As Jacque also mentioned, many of the on/offline traveler's guides are for some reason not updated with this fact.

We had a lovely experience at Hayden's Wexford House. Sylvie and Jacque were wonderful, sharing information about the area, their lovely B & B and making us an exceptional breakfast. The accomodations were very comfortable with private baths that we found well appointed. The B & B has some wonderful historic features and Jacques experiences with the first naion peoples added to the ovrall ambience and experience. We would highly recommend staying here - in close proximity to lower and upper Quebec City, all within walking distance.

Jacques our host was most hospitable ( Sylvie was on vacation).
Delicious breakfasts. Our rooms were spotless and each had its private bathroom. Beautifully decorated and steeped in history. Located a short distance to excellent shopping and restaurants at the foot of the funicular.
Would recommend as long as stairs are not a serious problem for you.
Rooms are on 3rd floor .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

After traveling for house from Toronto, we discovered our confirmed booking at a hotel was "forgotten" and our room given to other travellers.
We urgently had to find another space, and found Jacques and Sylvie's hotel. They were so friendly and kind and we felt right at home when we arrived.
The entire property is beautiful and well restored so it set the mood for visiting the Old City.
The breakfast was wonderful, and our hosts were gracious.
The rooms are unfortunately not very comfortable for relaxing in, and bathroom has to be shared. Although there was a bath, they do not provide a bath plug forcing you to shower. It seems these are all efforts to manage costs.
If you want early coffee you have to wait as there is none provided except at breakfast time.
It would be nice if they can create a bit more of relaxation space as no-one wants to just stay in their rooms. A little coffee machine with some cups and some relaxation space would make a big difference, in particular as there are no coffee shops in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the sea (it has more light). Bring bath plugs if you want to bath.

We decided to book this B&B due to good reviews pointed here. As usual, we could not find something different.

Jacques and Sylvie host their guest in a superbe manner with all kind of finesse. All e-mails were promptly responded we felt very comfortable. No errors, no misunderstandings.

The house is located about 10 - 15 minutes walking from Petit Champlain St., a well-known too-touristy alley and just behind Cap Diamant. Bus stops are right out of door. If you decide to get a taxi to reach it, be advised to have the address or a map in hand. It may be helpful.
There are only 4 rooms in the house, what means you’ll probably have a more intimate place, mainly if the house is not fully booked. All the rooms are immaculate and spacious. Bed and pillows were awesomely confortable. Also, there are 2 spotlessly clean shared bathrooms very well equipped.

Breaksfast is daily served at 8.30 in the living room downstairs among other guest. Sylvie and Jaqcues stimulate the guests to share their experience, making this time a joyful moment. By the way, Sylvie and Jacques cook and prepare the breakfast. If you dislike something, make them know it.

This is absolutely a place to rest and enjoy some days off, to meet people and to get closer to the typical old Quebecoise way of living.

Room Tip: Strangely the Pink Room (facing the hill) has wi-fi signal lack.

Nice breakfast, although it is served only at 8:30 and the living quarters are locked until that point. Guests who are up earlier have the option of hanging out in their small rooms, or in the tiny parlor area upstairs, or in the stairwell that leads to the first floor. Really? For those who are very budget minded, this may be an acceptable option. For those looking for R&R at their leisure, not so much.
