We stayed in the Cloutier Room at the Auberge Baker for two nights. The room was very spacious and quaintly furnished with antique furniture. The Auberge sits back from the main road and is fairly quiet. Within easy driving distance are the Chutes at Montmorency and the Cathedrale St. Anne de Beaupré as well as some nice hiking. Because there aren’t many restaurants in the area we ate both days in the hotel. The food was very good and the lunch menu was very reasonable, so we had planned to break one of our sightseeing days by doing lunch there, too. We were told that lunch was served until 5. We double checked again with the waitress that they would be doing lunch the next day and planned accordingly. We arrived back at the hotel at 3 looking forward to a nice meal. Well, the restaurant had closed at 2 and no lunch was being served. It was a Sunday and they only served brunch till 2. We were none too happy about this because there were very few places too eat nearby and quite frankly we were starving! We had to wait till dinner to get anything to eat and survived on peanuts and crackers till they started serving dinner. It really spoiled the day. We also had an issue trying to figure out how to get the shower in our room to work. We called down to reception and asked if they could send someone up. No-one ever came. The next morning we called again and even the person they sent couldn’t figure it out. Through trial and error we finally figured it out ourselves. All in all the hotel is very charming, the food is good, but we were disappointed with the service. The staff weren’t particularly friendly or knowledgeable, but it’s certainly the best hotel in the area, so we would probably stay there again. At least we’d know how to operate the shower this time!
