Together, they create an incomparable communion of old-world comfort and luxurious contemporary design. Furnished with classic 20th-century pieces, The Gault experience is enhanced by huge French windows that flood each of the 30 suites with natural light and create a radiant atmosphere. All the rooms are open-plan and equipped with Mondrian custom oak cabinetry. Province of Quebec establishment registration number is 177096

Excellent location very easy to walk to the restaurants & Notre Dame . Very friendly & helpful staff . Beautiful large well appointed rooms if a little bland . Extremely comfortable bed ! They served breakfast which was very nice . But the hotel did lack atmosphere.

We planned a 3-day trip to Montreal. Looked at the hotel options on Expedia, checked the reviews and booked Hotel Gault for 1 night as we wanted to be sure if it's as good as it seemed. Our overall experience has been really good. Right from a warm welcome, to the efficient check-in, the staff was amazing. We were also pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms and the quality of everything that was used. We extended our stay at the hotel by another night. Highly recommend the place.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Gault for a romantic getaway. Although very pricey, it was worth it for the beautiful room. Pros: The exposed brick wall and large windows which opened were lovely and the soaker tub was much appreciated after a day of walking around the city. Cons: The handle on the toilet was loose and there was some dark staining around the base of the shower. We did hear some dogs barking in a neighbouring room. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

This hotel was comfortable, stylish and in great location. Service was excellent and the vibe was calm. Bed was wonderful. Air conditioning was a bit warm but we were there on a very hot day. Highly recommend. We upgraded to a loft and we’re very happy with it.

What a pleasant find! The staff was so helpful. We were upgraded to a junior suite and what a treat it was. I can't say enough about this hotel, it was spectacular!! The location was really perfect. They were undergoing some bar and restaurant additions, so I can't wait to return so we can experience that amenity.

A wonderful hotel with excellent service and old world feel. Staff were extremely courteous, cannot recommend the service enough. Our room(s) (we booked two non-contiguous stays) were gorgeous and beautifully designed. Boutique is the perfect description of the decor. Our first room had a corner balcony overlooking the "rue" feeling nothing short of an Impressionist painting, and our second room had a second balcony that had us wanting to re-enact Romeo and Juliet. The location is wonderful, right at the bottom of Old Montreal -- far enough away from the peak of tourist noise, but close enough to walk to the center of Old Montreal within minutes. Strongly recommend for couples or other Romantic (with a capital R) getaways. One tip: book directly via website if possible, it occasionally has discounts.

Came to Montreal to celebrate my partner’s birthday and a long weekend get away and decided with this boutique hotel after reviewing many positive reviews and it didn’t disappoint!! Nikolas, Britney and many staff (sorry couldn’t remember all the names) were very attentive to my needs before and during our stay. I told them it was for my partner’s birthday and they wrote a card and provided petit desserts upon checking in the hotel room and it was a very nice touch and delighted surprise - thanks so much! They also helped us made reservation to a restaurant (Garde Manger) on a particular day (celebration dinner) that I could not have otherwise able to secure if just book via open table. We booked the terrace suite deluxe and it was very spacious. There’s nespresso machine that I really appreciate so we could make some coffee and enjoy on the terrace in the morning before going out to venture the city. The only thing I really wish for this hotel is a colder A/C and if there’s anything the management could do to improve this or allow the staff to decrease the standard 23 or 25 degree Celsius to like 20 at least. There is nothing more disappointed than coming back from the heat outside to your room and it’s not cool enough or cold. We had to rely to cold showers to help us cool down from the strong sun, hot and humid summer. They provided a fan which is better than nothing. I never had a stay in a hotel that needs fan to help me cool off. This might be the only complain and hesitation/reservation I have if you return to this hotel next time. Otherwise really love the hotel, the terrace deluxe suite, service and location.

I splurged on this boutique hotel as a treat for my husband and I who never get to travel without our kids (they were in summer camp). Located in beautiful Old Montreal, our stay was very special. The hotel is funky, but also quiet. Our room, a Loft Deluxe, felt unique, spacious, and comfortable. When we needed something, the staff was very friendly, kind, and helpful. One small issue was that twice when we came back from a day out in the city, our key cards suddenly didn't work. Both times the issue was resolved at the front desk in a matter of seconds. We marveled at the fact that of the three front desk staff that helped us with this, not one said "I'm sorry about that." This is not a complaint on my part because I have decided that it has to be a cultural thing that American customer service situations always include an apology for that kind of inconvenience. Am I wrong Canadians? The staff really couldn't have been nicer so I'm just observing it here because it was funny to us.
