Great location at boat tour docks. Had a nice and comfortable room with excellent view of castle and of St. Lawerence (which was literally below my room balcony). Freindly check in. Relaxing stay.

This is a 1 star hotel in a 2 star area. The hotel was clean, but needed some TLC. We had a beautiful view and that is the selling point. It does need some fix up though
