“Quaint hotel in the heart of Knowlton”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

Great little hotel in the heart of Knowlton Quebec. Good restaurant at the hotel, and with many bistros in and around the area. We were there in the fall and many had restricted hours due to the off season.
The only downside to this hotel is that it can be a little noisy as it is an older building - but worth it for the charm!

The hotel location is great for visiting the small towns in the Eastern Township. There are wineries, covered bridges, art shops and cheese stores along the roads in and out of Knowlton. The fall leaves were exceptional in the area which added to the charm of staying in a historic inn. I agree with the other reviews on this page.

We really enjoyed our one night stay in this hotel. It is a charming hotel...cosy and welcoming. The hotel is up a flight of stairs, and our room was up another flight so it might not be suitable for everyone. The room itself was big and comfortable (we had 2 beds), although not fancy. The bathroom was very nice and there were plenty of towels.

The owners were very helpful, phoning the local winery to see if they were open for tastings. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to Domaine Les Brome - the lady there was really friendly and the view over the vineyards was lovely - oh, and the wine tasting was pretty good too!

I must also recommed the restaurant at the Auberge. The menu was extensive and both our main dishes were excellent (I had sausages and my husband had the duck). We also shared a very tasty starter - the assiette de terroir. The restaurant is nicely furnished and had a cosy atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly too.

Coming from Western Canada, there is something quite intriguing about staying at in inn built in 1849 that is “the oldest continuously operating hotel in the Eastern Townships”.

The Auberge Knowlton occupies the top two floors of a three-story building. The first floor is taken up by Le Relais Restaurant-Bistro (owned by the same people) and a fashion boutique. The hotel reception desk is on the second floor, with a small sitting area and a door leading to a rather large covered deck with numerous chairs for sitting and watching the town go by. Bedrooms are on the second and third floors of the building. One point to note is that the stairs to the second and third floors are a bit narrow and steep. They are not a problem, but just require that care be taken in ascending and descending, particularly with luggage.

Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathroom had obviously been modernized and, it being an old building, I was pleasantly surprised at the water pressure in the shower. WIFI was available in the rooms and there was a stand-alone computer in the sitting area just off the restaurant for those of us who had not brought along their laptops.

You can book either just the room by itself, or pay an additional amount for breakfast at Le Relais. (We thought that the overall accommodation/breakfast costs were reasonable in the context of Eastern Township costs generally.) If you pay the additional amount, you receive a coupon for a hot breakfast at Le Relais. My husband had the hot breakfast (from a couple of options) and was quite pleased with it. I am unable to eat a hot breakfast in the morning and was very grateful for the efforts they made to accommodate my breakfast preferences. Incidentally, we ate dinner at Le Relais a couple of times and were very pleased with our meals. (They give you a 10% off coupon for dinner when you check in at the hotel.) Staff were very service-oriented, both at the restaurant and at the hotel.

The only downside of the Auberge, and just for me because I am more noise sensitive than many people including DH, was the location. Being an old hotel, it was built at the cross-roads of roads leading through the Eastern Townships – makes perfect sense in the historical context. However, as time has passed, the roads in question have become busier and busier and now there are vehicles of all sorts going through the four-way stop at the intersection. As a result, I found the location to be somewhat noisy during the day. Fortunately, it was only single-lane traffic in all directions and the traffic became considerably less in the early evening. The air conditioner also provided sufficient white noise to diminish the noise of night-time traffic. So, in the end, although I was concerned about this when we first checked in, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I feared.

The Auberge Knowlton is charming and the owners are lovely, accommodating people. Overall, it was a pleasure to stay at their inn.

Visited this inn with my girlfriend during Labour Day weekend last year. We stayed 2 night and we couldn't have been happier.

Excellent clean room that was larger than the pictures on the website lead us to believe!

The service at front desk was helpful and approachable. They directed us to a great marina where we had drinks by the lake.

The restaurant downstairs was a great place to dine, but we only ate there one of the two nights. The hosts helped us find another restaurant in the little village.

Overall, very pleased with our stay and the value offered.

Room Tip: Stay on the 2nd floor, it's a little quieter

We checked in on Friday night for a Saturday meeting. It was a bit of a weird arrival since I had to go to the hotel for service. Although, it is in between winter skiing season and summer, so it's probably one of the least busy times of the year. I think we were the only ones staying there on this particular night. The manager of the hotel was very nice and hospitable. The auberge it self is very centrally located and is very close to the Knowlton Pub, which is a nice place to have a drink or three.

I had breakfast in the restaurant the next day. The French toast was quite good, but the fruit that accompanied it only consisted of a couple of slices of grapefruit.

The amenities weren't great and it was a tad pricey at $125 per night, given the time of year. I might really give it more of a 3.5 out of 5, overall, but we can't do half points on Trip Advisor.

Just spent a week over the Christmas holidays at Auberge Knowlton, and would highly recommend it. My wife, older daughter, and our elderly yellow lab, had a suite, and found it to be quite nice. Bed was comfortable, and room was very quiet (despite this inn being located on the main crossroads of the town). Great breakfast included. The proprietors were extremely friendly and helpful. Located between Mont Sutton and Bromont for skiing. Restaurant on the first floor served fantastic meals (a must try is the local Brome duck, unlike any duck I've had before). Spa Bolton about 20 minute drive, great indoor and outdoor experience. Local shopping & more great restaurnants an easy walk. Parking in rear. Both English and French spoken by everyone we met locally, and this made it part of this experience.
