Travelers' Choice
Retreat to the charming countryside of Quebec! Quiet, private and peaceful — our exclusive resort manages to feel both grand and cozy at the same time. A Bucket List destination in itself, Fairmont Le Château Montebello is known for its rustic-chic flair, warm French-Canadian hospitality and cachet as the only resort within easy access of Canada’s capital. Set on 300 bucolic acres overlooking the Ottawa River, the landmark is a quintessential Canadian resort, with 210 guest rooms and suites. Soak in the 90 years of history at this former Canadian Pacific Railway hotel and private club, and take advantage of some 40 guest activities year-round. In true resort style, everything is right here. Lounge by the largest indoor hotel pool in Canada, swim and sunbathe outside, and luxuriate at the spa. Boat in to our marina. Play 18 holes of golf, a match of tennis, go dog sledding, curling, ice skating or cross-country skiing. Find solitude among our tranquil woods and cycling paths. Join us for a traditional Canadian Christmas celebration or springtime Quebecois sugar shack excursion. Sip white martinis in the château’s magnificent 1930s lodge by the towering three-story stone fireplace, the iconic centerpiece of the biggest log cabin ever built. Bienvenue (welcome)!

The service was unrefined as seen by servers in the restaurant and the valet (the one valet available failed to welcome us and bring our luggage inside, busy discussing weekend plans with a colleague) the dinner menu was lackluster and the quality, mediocre. Breakfast was most disappointing, menu was comparable to a diner's, consisting of bacon and eggs with little to no alternatives. The latter, bagel and lox consisted of a dry bagel which one could find for 50% at Loblaw's due to nearing expiry date with some decent quality smoked salmon and cream cheese . As mentioned above, the unrefined server failed to recognize our displeasure with the meal choosing instead to question the reasons why we chose not to eat pork, only to then half heartedly agree to reach to the kitchen to change my spouse's pork for smoke salmon which we appreciated. However, the spa services offered by the manager Sylvie was professional, well organized and enjoyable. We had mani/pedi for one, massage for two and facial for two, all of which were scheduled back to back making it very efficient. We were pleased with all 3 services. The only thing we would of added was the option to have refreshments and some snacks. 8.5/10! We understand the challenges associated with the pandemic and their impact on operations. Indeed, these are challenging times for the industry. All things considered, our standards might of been too high. Unfortunately, there lays the problem... Fairmont Hotels should always exceed expectations and standards.

Beautiful weather, relaxing stay, people with a smile and welcoming. The site is really beautiful near the river, but many seadoos on the river and a bit noisy. walking distance to the Montebello village to visit historic places.

This place is gorgeous. Rustic, ambient, and very cozy. The lobby is gorgeous and decorated with beautiful art and memorabilia. The ground and amenities are world class and the staff is happy and willing to please. As a regular fairmont customer, the Montebello has been among the best of my experiences. Golf course is fantastic and challenging, with great views and exceptional staff. Had a great weekend with 4 golf friends and we would come back anytime.

Sadly disappointed with the state of such a once top class luxury hotel. The exterior of the buildings are rotting away, some of the out buildings have holes in the roofs, the corner joinery of the once world renowned log building are decaying to the point we are not certain how they can be repaired. Birds were nesting in the logs around our window. It's such a sad sight for us as we've always admired the grounds and were once in awe of the magnificence of the main building. Although renovations have begun internally to some of the wings, the cost of a deluxe unrenovated room was highly overpriced. We realize we stayed during the pandemic and no restaurants were open inside the hotel, but the lack of a complimentary coffee/snack bar would have been the least the hotel could have done to help their guests and thank them for their stay. We did receive a complimentary water bottle, but overall highly lacked the experience of a luxury hotel. The in-room dining service was extremely over-priced and the only option within the hotel. Luckily being from the region, we were permitted to go to the few local restaurants that were open (gov't issued i.d. was required). The pool, hot tub & massages we all disappointing. The hotel seems to be overrun by families with young children running about, so much so that on a nice Saturday evening safely gathered around the stunning fireplace, all adults retreated to their rooms because the noise of rambunctious kids running about and parents who didn't seem to notice their behavior. On our many walks on their lovely trails, not once did we see another person, not even families with children itching to burn off steam. Although the Chateau Montebello was once a favourite, we are uncertain if we will return.

Thank you Sharon for your valuable feedback and comments. I have to admit with you that yes, we have some areas around our 19 buildings that do need improvements, and our owners are investing heavily in the building in the last few years 20 millions). We also have a plan to take on these big projects but as you can imagine, a 90 years old log building, even though we invest 2 millions a year on it, it seems like it does not show. We are a family friendly resort. Most of the times, couples and families cohabit nicely in our hotel. It can happen at times, where it will bother some guests that are here for tranquility. However, with our 700 acres of land surrounding our hotel, the waterside and all the grass, there are plenty of areas for every guest to enjoy their moment of peace.
