Travelers' Choice
For 90 years, Fairmont Le Château Montebello has been known for its rustic charm, superb architecture and beautiful natural surroundings. Described as the true Canadian experience, the world’s largest log cabin fails to disappoint guests who travel to its secluded location to recharge and escape the demands of their daily lives. Historically founded as a private club in 1930, the resort is now an ideal destination both for leisure and business travelers. Beautiful surroundings and year-round activities offer our guests countless possibilities of adventures, including golf, cross-country skiing, dogsledding, curling, as well as Canada's only Land Rover off-road driving experience. Starting in September 2018, the hotel will undergo interior renovations to modernize and revitalize the guest rooms, the corridors and the lobby area – an investment of over $17.5M.

Gorgeous facility with very notable architecture and many amenities included with the "resort fee". You can easily spend a day or more without ever leaving the grounds, and the landscape (of forests and Ottawa river) is lovely. Enjoy the quality comforts and service of Fairmont and multiple sporting and leisure activities. Whether a family vacation or a romantic get-away, this was an exceptional place to visit at a reasonable distance from either Ottawa or Montreal.

Looking for a place nearby for somewhat of a staycation, the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello is a great option for people living near Ottawa or Montreal - ideally located pretty much in between the two. With COVID, the place is a little bit different than what it usually is, especially on the food side as the grandiose breakfast buffet and weekend brunch have been replaced by a not so cheap a la carte breakfast. The menu was also simplified for dinner at the main restaurant and the summer BBQ moved to a "table service" all you can eat option. Food quality remains top notch and we found the dinner at the restaurant to offer the right balance of quality and value... for a premium experience. The BBQ featured awesome service but I was a little bit less impressed by the selection. The outdoor pool area was great, and not overcrowded as it tends to get in peak summer. You could see staff disinfecting chairs and common areas on a very regular basis. As for the room, I was upgraded to a nice corner room which was available for early check-in and ready as per my pre-arrival requests. Room size was more than adequate. The room was recently renovated and had the right balance of "new" with that classic Fairmont old-fashioned touch. The only odd thing was poor finishing of one of the wall panel where you could see insulation on the edge of the wall, and a few minor finishing issues in the bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. WIFI very reliable. On the activity side, most things were available and great care was taken to disinfect equipment in between use. We went to Kanauk one morning to enjoy complementary water activities (kayak) and had a great time. The last point I'll mention is great customer service recovery post-stay. Before arrival, I had noticed an issue with the rate to be charged by the hotel, and what I was quoted on the phone. After some investigating by the Customer Service Desk at Fairmont, and the hotel, a very suitable outcome was achieved, in line with what you would expect of the Fairmont brand In this environment where people are looking for a "safe" and nearby getaway, this is a great option to consider

Hotel location and architecture are superb, staff is very professional and courteous. We had booked a Luxury king Room with river view: view was indeed superb but room was in need of a major overhaul which a real disappointment, specially given the price. Restaurant food was below expectations for this level of resort.

With fees and taxes, we paid nearly $40 extra per day for "resort fee". We had wanted to/expected to utilize the resort fully. However, the major things we went there for were not available, namely the kids’ area/arcade, sauna, hot tub, pool (which was closed 2 days we were there, and on days it was available it had only one half accessible and was way over chlorinated to enjoy swimming in), carriage ride (available only 1/7 days and after we were leaving) and upscale dining experiences. While we understand that there is a pandemic underway and controls must be put in place, the fees should reflect that. We certainly did not get our money's worth at all and were very disappointed. Not he "family" resort we were looking for. There is only one restaurant available and not a lot of selection. Breakfast- Yogurt with granola and tea/coffee $22- plus fees, taxes and tip of course. Wow. We had one meal there when we first arrived and did not return: one vegetarian dish + one salad + a small bowl of fruit (ramekin sized seriously) + one appetizer + one alcoholic (rail whiskey) drink for a total of $170. If the food was spectacular, we would have been ok to pay the premium however it was not the case. The quality of the food was not what we have experienced at other Fairmont properties. It was simply a very poor value and sadly not a wonderful experience. We had no hot water for the 5 days we were there. We had maintenance come, we were in touch with the front desk several times and though we did get a small compensation on our final bill, 5 days of cold showers really was not acceptable. Three days after unpacking all our things they said they could have us move to another room, not an upgrade to make up for the inconvenience however, as there were "none available" which was hard to believe as the hotel was at 20% capacity at most. We spent our first evening there unpacking the family and getting everything sorted and settled. Spending our precious vacation time packing up the entire family and having to spend hours reorganizing was not a good solution for us especially without anything to compensate us for the hassle. So we "roughed it" and heated the kettle for the kids to have shallow baths and had cold showers ourselves; not a stellar impression. We made the best of it but really? Fairmont should have done better. We would visit Montebello again as it is beautiful, but I would reconsider staying at this property. The staff are nice but don't make up for the shortfalls we experienced sadly. Check out Parc Omega. Highly recommended.

Thank you SharenBee for sharing your feedback following your stay with us. I am sorry to see that it was not up to your expectations. I must say, yes, the pandemic is affecting our ability to fully operate our hotel and activities normally. The safety and security of our guest being the number one priority, we are applying all measures strictly. This does impact arcade, group activities, hot tubs and also food offering (as we have to maintain social distancing in the kitchen as well.) Just a note regarding our buffet options; since we are not in a position to offer a full buffet breakfast as well as a full à la carte menu, we have prepared a menu with many options and you refer to Yogurt and granola with coffee for 22$, but we have also included in all our menu options fresh fruits, juice and a variety of pastries to each menu. So 22$ for all of this is a normal price for our hotel. I know our Director of Guest services as already contacted you, and I want to apologize for hot water issues that unfortunately affected a few rooms this past week. Fortunately, it is fixed now. Again, thank you for sharing and for your feedback. Geneviève

Stayed two nights mid-week. My room rate included the buffet breakfast which was delicious. The hotel was fairly quiet when i was there - which i enjoyed. The property is beautiful. I didn't really do any activities except hiking and swimming in the pool, but there was a list of things available (although not sure whether covid impacted what you could do).
