“Super stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We spent a family week end in one of the brand new loft. Spacious, comfortable, trendy at a friendly price ( 99$ week-end special ), Staff was helpful and food was great. Major renovations were ongoing for a year but the result is fantastic. Finally a real four star full service hotel in Val d`Or. Will be back !

Room Tip: ask for the new loft since they also offer regular corporate room

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

On the outskirts of Val D'Or (which means a taxi ride to go to town) the rooms are standard fare. My room was a little on the small side, but clean. The hotel is undergoing renovations, so there was a bit of a mess in places. Front desk friendly enough. The bar was good, but we didn't try the restaurant as the town had better options. Not overly expensive compared to other hotels but on the higher side in Val D'Or, I doubt I would stay there again. Just nothing outstanding. No pool!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

I was part of a hockey group last week-end and our group price was $132.00 per room. Way too expensive if you compare to Quality Inn and Suites at $111.00 per night, including a continental breakfast. In addition, there was explosives near by at 5:00 am and believe me... we could ear them very well... Furthermore, lots of ski-doos were racing in front of our room at 8:00 am on saturday morning since the hotel are offering these types of forfaits. What a nightmare.... It is the last time I go at the Forestel. On a positive note, the staff was quite accomodating but refused to lower their prices.

Room Tip: Staff at night was very accomodating since we were a fairly large group. Thanks to him.

Forestel Hotel is situated just a few kilometers East of Val d'or in a quiet area. The service was quite good and the buffet breakfast was excellent and had a wide selection of food to choose from. The room was of average size and had a large HD 40 inch screen or larger.
I would definitely come back.

Was in town for business, and this hotel was a great oasis in the middle of winter. Rooms were clean and warm. The restaraunt and bar in the hotel was nice to visit after a long day at work, no need to go out to eat after cleaning up for the evening. I will be staying with them again in the future.

This hotel advertizes itself as a 4 star hotel. I had originally booked an economy room for 3 nights directly with the hotel. On arrival the girl at the counter was working at the back of the reception and ignored me for a full 3 minutes although I was calling her. The elevator was dirty and its floor had broken tiles. The bathroom has a broken toilet seat and a very rusty drain in the bath. The high speed Internet worked well and the room was quiet. The pillows were like cement bags. If this hotel deserved 4 stars, it was a long time ago. 2 stars at best.

In many ways this is an pleasant full-service hotel, located on the edge of this busy little mining town. Its charges are broadly the same as the numerous other budget motels in town, but this hotel has a classier feel to it. It is let down by the soiled carpets in some rooms, and the irresponsible (and I suspect illegal) practice of propping open all the internal fire doors.
