My wife and I with two other friends visited family in Mattawa in June 2016. We enjoyed Valois Motel. Clean room with a great view of the river. Comfy beds and a great restaurant with good well cooked food and friendly staff. We will be back in June 2017. Note to TripAdvisor staff my review of le voyageur was an...

Valois has been a staple for years during our trips to Northern Ontario. Brought my kids today and it'll be their first and last time. Not only has the place had no updates in decades, the food was by far the most unappetizing I've had in decades as well. Turkey noodle soup was mush. Rueben sandwich was greasy and the...

Restaurant empty, order for 4 people were wrong, took almost 2 hrs to get steak dinner!!! And staff tells us not to be rude!! I don't know who these new owners are but hopefully they do something about their staff and service because they are quickly ruining the great name and reputation Valois's has had for many many years!!!!

The Valois is a very comfortable hotel. Rooms are clean, beds very comfortable and some with a great view of the river. The restaurant is excellent. Great food, great service and very reasonable prices. We had dinner and breakfast twice and enjoyed our meals. The only negative was the lack of snow removal on the steps and landing going to...

We have stayed there only one night. This is a great place. Came on Oct 9, 2016 in the evening. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a view of the river Ottawa. They have a great restaurant and bar. We decided to stay for dinner and it was a great choice and a delicious meal. Next morning with breakfast the...

Heading back to Ottawa I like to make Mattawa a halfway rest stop, and the Valois is usually one of the fave's. Not sure what's happening but it seems a lot different recently than usual. At noon there's usually a bigger crowd, but we were a bit on the 1:00 PM side so we assumed a quieter time for them....

Dirty rooms, yellow pillows with hair. Got upgraded to a slightly better room, but still dirty and worn down and without hair on the pillows. This motel has seen its better days and the restaurant is not any better. The burger seemed to be pre-cooked and I had to cut and eat it with a fork and knife. Our advice...

The restaurant was fine, I liked the local, small town atmosphere. Our room was ok too, but if I ran the place I'd do a few things that would not be hard to implement. The sink faucet was loose, moved a good bit when you turned the handles. The toilet seat was the wrong size for the bowl so it...
