“very nice atmosphere, good location and excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

The building is quite old and they managed to keep a nice feeling of wood floor and brick walls in the really cute rooms. Good location, a lot of good restaurants in the area and close to the old town (10 mn walk). The breakfast is fresh, and the staff very helpful.
Don't miss the rooftop terasse which offers a nice view of the city, harbor and saint Laurent river.
We will definitely come back.

This was our second stay at the Château des Tourelles. After experiencing various B&B's and fancy hotels in Québec City over the years, we have decided to make this establishment our "home" during our yearly fall foliage trip. The neighborhood is a convenient walk to the old part of town (10-15 minutes) with many interesting shops to browse along the way. There is a convenience store right near the front door, a pharmacy with post office down the street, and a few bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is secure in a covered garage a few blocks away. Our room faced out onto the street, was light and airy, had good pressure and hot water in the shower, a HD T.V., wooden floors (great for allergy sufferers), and comfortable bedding. Light sleepers may want to request a room facing the back. We always look forward to breakfast. Delicious choices are freshly prepared in a cozy breakfast room. We enjoy the omelets, fresh fruit, yogurt with granola, and coffee to start our day. Thank you to William (efficient and organized) who greets guests upon arrival and the owners who really enjoy what they do. We are looking forward to another wonderful stay next year!

Room Tip: Due to stairs to climb, those with a lot of bags or other issues may want to request a room on the 1...

We recently spent one night at this European-style hotel within walking distance of much of the old city. The narrow flight of stairs to access the reception level could prove a challenge for some, but we had help from our host with the bags; he could not have been more helpful in meeting all our needs. Our room was on that same level, as well as the dining room where we enjoyed a delicious full breakfast, attractively presented. Our corner room was modest in size, but spotless and the bed was very comfortable. We did later climb further to access their roof-top deck that offers spectacular views of the city. We picked up sushi take out on rue St-Jean and enjoyed it for a roof-top lunch in spite of the cool October day; later we returned to the patio with a glass of wine to further admire the view. There are several bakeries and cafes within comfortable walking distance. We had dinner at the Veau d'Or, an italian restaurant a few blocks away, where we enjoyed reasonable, well prepared veal scallopini dishes and had no fear of walking back to the Chateau after dark. The Eglise St. Jean Baptiste, a couple of blocks away, is magnificent and well worth a stop in; we were fortunate to walk by around 4:00pm when the doors were not locked. The Chateau parking is not directly on site, but once we located it, an inside parking accessed with a key, found it to be
accessible and secure.

We had a great time in this place. The owners are very friendly and they have the cutest little dog. The breakfast was great and the place was beautiful and super clean and confy. Totally recommendable!

When you approach the hotel from the parking lot and you see probably homeless guys just biding their time in the mini park next to the hotel, don't panic. Once you get inside and talk to William, all your worries will be appeased. The hotel doesn't have an elevator, and going up is through a narrow flight of stairs so if you have handicapped members in your party, this hotel is not for you. The hotel looks like an old house that has been renovated and converted to a B&B. I think this is the only hotel that has a studio that can accommodate 5 people. The rest of our party occupied one of these rooms. It has it's own mini kitchen with its own fridge. The beds are comfy and the linens looked clean. The bathroom though is really tight so don't expect the bathroom to be the same as when you go to a modern hotel. The best part of the stay is the included breakfast. The omelet is really good and William prepared it like a gourmet chef would have prepared one. William is not only the manager, cook and tourist guide. He will give you directions on how best to maximize your stay in the city.The hotel is just a short walk to the old city. There's plenty of restaurants and stores along the way so your walk won't be boring. The hotel also has a roof top terrace where you can enjoy the view over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Just be careful going up especially if you're claustrophobic because you will be passing by tight spaces. Overall, I still will recommend this especially if there's a lot of people in your party and does not mind sleeping together in one room.

We stayed 4 nights in Sept. & we were charmed from the minute we walked in the front door. William was everything a host should be from the best mushroom omelet I have ever had to a wealth of information.
We made use of our balcony, the rooftop patio as well as the lounge with cookies & tea or coffee. I would recommend this Inn very highly and I will return as it is walking distance to everything but also quiet.
I loved my stay and adore Quebec City! Judy C. Thank you so much!
