“Exorbitant parking fees”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Parked for just over an hour and was charged $17.25 and there is nowhere else to park. Went there for lunch, but won't be going back with that kind of charge. Classier places have validation, so that if you have stopped for lunch you don't have to pay for parking. Pretentious nonsense.

“Rather incredible vaulted wooden lodge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Knee deep in snow, minus 25 outside, but fabulous big fire inside with a welcome to match. We weren't able to eat in the bar unfortunately, so had to have the restaurant food. Which was a shame. They could really do better. However everyone enjoyed the visit and would go again, having learned from the experience!

“Come Rusticate Fairmont Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

All one needs to know about the charm of Fairmont's Montebello can be summed up in two words: Adirondack Chair. On a sweltering July day, a comfy seat on the Ottawa Riverbank with cool breeze and gorgeous view is damned near perfect. That, together with the majesty of this monumental log lodge, fine beds and linens, decent bathrooms and myriad sporting activities render a fantastic vacation spot -- especially for active families.

So, ok, the place is a little worn around the edges and smells of mustiness and cresosote. Our corner room was spacious, all right, but dark and sparing with a promised river view. The wallpaper was peeling and the carpets need replacing. There's no turn-down service and the food service is spotty. That said, however, Montebello is amazing. Worth coming to again and again in all seasons.

“Love the warm lobby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The 3 storey historic stone fireplace is an awesome way to warm up after a long winter. Lobby bar is a great place to relax and send the kids off to the arcade to play some games.

“Located Fairmont Hotel. Cozy and friendly atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Fairmont Le Chateau is one of popular attraction in Montebello. If you visit Montebello, please visit Fairmont Hotel. You can stroll forests and along the Ottawa river and then have a drink at the hotel bar looking the gorgerous lobby, people and listening the live piano music.
