“Fantastic Stay-Can’t wait to go back!!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I booked this hotel for a short break and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we were mesmerized by the beauty of the hotel, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. The hotel is situated in beautiful old Montréal and the room we stayed in was gorgeous. I loved the way the whole hotel has been designed - it's just beautiful. I absolutely loved this place and can't wait to go back.

Extremely nice hotel. The staff were lovely, the building was beautiful and the room was generous and decorated in a pretty scandinavian style.

The breakfast was relaxed and tasty and I love the fact that they have a DVD shelf downstairs that you can just help yourself to. I have only stayed in this hotel in Montreal, but I'd recommend it to other young couples who like quite classy hotels. If you like horrible chain hotels, you probably wont like it, but if you're hip, you will!

Rooms are large, airy with high ceilings, well appointed with iPod docks, large bathroom (in the loft) dark grey cement heated floor.Original parts of the architecture are blended in the contemporary design of the hotel, a column or granite walls. Staff was very helpful and friendly, rooms are clean.. I would really choose to stay here on a next visit to Montreal

The hotel is located in Old City and close to the metro, so ideally situated for site seeing. There were good restaurants nearby and food service at the hotel was excellent. The staff do it all, from checking in, to bar service, to directions, and the concierge, Henri, made very helpful suggestions.
The only things I thought could use improvement were more towel hooks near the bathroom sink and a room darkening shade for the bedroom. The wooden blinds are very attractive but it was light in the room very early in the morning. Otherwise, we had contemporary styled furniture, some beautiful art, lots of comfort and great privacy.

While I have reviewed Hotel Gault in the past, I feel compelled to do so again after our third visit. It is not so uncommon to have a great experience at a hotel, but to visit multiple times and have such consistently excellent service is definitely notable!

Everything about this hotel is exceptional - location, design, rooms, food... but the people are the real stars. They are charming, helpful and welcoming. It's a treat to stay with them.

Hotel Gault is a very well balanced blend of Old Montreal with its old world exterior and a great combination of decor, service and comfort for those who are part of the jet set, or at least like to feel like it. Check-in was smooth and efficient. The hotel staff are all extremely courteous, pleasant and go out of their way to fulfill any need or request.

My room was a bit more minimalist than I anticipated. Once I settled in, I really enjoyed the minimalist setup and the decor. The room was quite large, as was the bathroom, clean, and the amenities were quite nice, separate wash and shower area, radio with CD player, TV, and sound system to connect an iPod. The bed was also quite comfortable. No complaints whatsoever.

It was quite rainy when I visited, so I spent more time than I would have liked in the hotel. The hotel lobby doubles as a very large and cool lounge, with the type of atmosphere that allows one to easily settle in. Have a drink, read a book (the hotel has many) or newspaper, check out the artwork or chat with the hotel staff. Or, if you require a little privacy, hang out all by yourself in the study.

I also took advantage of the hotel's breakfast service. The breakfast menu offers a variety of options and was quite good. The service was exceptional. The Hotel Gault staff really know how to make a guest feel comfortable without being intrusive. This is especially noteworthy given the hotel's atmosphere.

As far as location, the hotel is off the beaten path, so may not be readily identifable on a map. It is a quick walk to Old Montreal, which is quite convenient. It's a 5-10 min. walk to the nearest Metro station to check out Montreal's other attractions, which for me is no problem. If you don't mind walking, the hotel's location won't present a problem as far as accessibility to the city's attractions are concerned; just be mindful that there are some pretty steep hills depending on where you go.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Montreal. It is a very lovely place, with excellent staff, and exceptional accommodations. I will surely stay there again in future visits to Montreal.

My daughter & I stayed at the Gault recently. We loved the modern & comfortable rooms. Very clean with all amenities. The location is great. We were a 20 minute walk to McGill University and a 5 minute walk to the great shops & restaurants in old Montreal. Also a 5 minute cab ride to the train station. The staff were very courteous & helpful.
Had a delicious lunch at Olive e Gourmand, a 5 min walk from the hotel.
