The home made chocolate bread for breakfast was the best. The place was very romantic. Nathalie helped planned our time there and directions on getting around. We were walking distance to the Cirque du Soleil performance, Levi Ferry and other attractions.

We hope to be back soon!

We spent 3 nights at this cozy B and B. Nathalie and Paul are wonderful hosts and made us feel immediately "chez nous". The room was charming and comfortable. The breakfasts were simple and delicious with fresh breads that Nathalie baked herself. We enjoyed our morning breakfasts with the other guests and Nathalie and Paul. They created a very congenial atmosphere. I enjoyed practicing my French but it is not problem if you only speak English. The location is very convenient just outside the old city wall near the old port. The hosts had plenty of information to recommend the visitor. Everything was well thought out - there were umbrellas to borrow on a rainy morning. We stayed in the Caravelle room - on the 2nd floor facing the street but was not a problem for noise at night. Highly recommended. We found our hosts to be "tres sympathique" and hope to return one day.

My husband and I were so pleased to have discovered A La Decouverte. This Bed and Breakfast is a real treasure. Our room was very comfortable and the bed was excellent! The continental breakfasts were so special because of the different delicious breads baked by Nathalie, our hostess. We were within easy walking distance to all of the sites Old Quebec has to offer. Nathalie and her husband were always very willing to help us with directions and advice. We've recommended Quebec City and A La Decourverte to all of our traveling friends.

Room Tip: We would have been very comfortable there with any of the rooms.

This B&B was gay friendly and accommodated a gluten-free and lactose-free diet right away! The owners were sweet; suggesting activities while not being pushy, making english and french speakers feel welcome (at the same time) by translating for everyone eating breakfast, and discussing music and politics. The location was near many different types of parking (go to the lot by Esso for the cheapest long term parking), a farmers market, the train, a bike rental shop, food, and the wall. They mention having a cat, but I never saw it and didn't feel any allergies (my allergy is very slight).
I really can't express how lovely this B&B was. I wanted to hug the owners!

PS there is no pool or fitness center, but I accidentally selected it.

We have had two wonderful nights in that beautiful B&B. The room was cosy and quiet during day and night. The breakfast is superb with self baked bread, fresh fruit and a lot of things you would not normally have for a breakfast but you will be delighted and you will not miss anything.

Parking the car is not so easy, but there is a parking area where you have to pay in a short distance. Within the city you do not need in anyways.

Hello dear guests, S and J !

Thank you kindly for taking the time to write this review. It is appreciated as it will help our future guests in their choice.

We remenber your kindnest during your stay at our place, we really appreciated your presence in our house. Our conversations at breakfast were pleasant and punctuated with laughs and light-hearted subjects and some serious ones... I am afraid that we were not able to resolve all the problems of the world during that short stay ! Again, thank you. Good continuation.

This charming B&B is in a great location for visiting the lower town, old market (recommended), image mill and the old port. It's a level walk to restaurants and art galleries, the Musee du Civilisation, Place Royale and a bit further on, the pretty streets around Petit Champlain. It's a short (uphill) walk to Rue St Jean, the main street in old Quebec (tip: streets named Cote are on a hill). It's also a short stagger from the finish of the Quebec marathon which is why I chose it. Our ensuite room was spotless and beautifully decorated in keeping with the maritime theme of this lovely old house. The home-made goodies for breakfast were a welcome bonus and Nathalie was very helpful when we needed an early pre-marathon breakfast.

Room Tip: Caravelle faces the street so there was some traffic noise from nearby roads but the road directly u...

This was a lovely, friendly place right under the City walls and only a couple of minutes from the station. Nathalie and Paul used a lovely mixture of french and english so I was encouraged to keep trying my french knowing that there would always be a lifeline! The continental breakfast was stunning especially the home made breads. The location is really great to explore the old city and docks on foot.

Room Tip: The stairs are quite shallow so getting up to the attics wasn't a problem
