“Wonderful B&B in very quiet area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

My wife and I stayed at this B&B after reading all the glowing reviews. It's just off the Ave Maguire that has some excellent restaurants including two off my favorites Le Cochon Dingue and Brynd for smoked meat. Ave Maguire is just a 3 or 4 minute walk from Au Bois Joli. The B&B is an elegant older home that has been meticulously cared for and restored in a very peaceful neighborhood, absolutely no noise at night or early mornings. We stayed in a room 3 that had a queen bed and sitting area with a sofa and a newly renovated bathroom that looked like it had never been used.

We only met Jean as his wife was away in Toronto but he certainly knew his way around the kitchen and served up some wonderful breakfasts including his homemade maple syrup pie. I thought it would be too heavy to eat but it was very light and I found addictive. I tried to be polite and only take one piece but had to have a second. It's made with his own maple syrup that he harvests in the spring. By the way the best maple syrup in all of Quebec!! I purchased 2 containers to bring home with me.

As Jean is a local he provided recommendations on where to eat and each of the three nights we had delicious dinners in places that weren't frequented by tourists but mostly locals. He provided information on the bus service and had tickets available for purchase. He is a very friendly host but not at all intrusive but really a delightful proprietor. We hope to get back some time this winter and have a chance to meet his better half.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a very spacious room with a sitting area that has a sofa. Bathroom has its own heater so y...

We do hope that you will have the opportunity to come again at Au Bois Joli! The Sillery area, as you have so nicely pointed out, is a real gem in Quebec city and Maguire street is so pleasant with its many choices for restaurants and all services. We believe that offering our guests a little more, like a nice, cosy livingroom with relaxing music, well decorated, neat and quiet rooms can make a difference in a stay. And we are happy when our menus have pleased. Thank you very much for choosing us.

It was a great 2 nights stay at this beautiful B&B. Really nice and friendly atmosphere, nice and really clean rooms. Jean & Georgette are gifted host/hostess; really attentive to details- they make sure that everything is perfect. Great breakfasts, which were delicious creative. Also, the B&B is well situated, close to University, Shopping center and different buses lines.

Our wonderful stay at this friendly, modern,very clean B & B was end Sept. for 4 nights. Jean &
Georgette are gifted host/hostess. Breakfasts were creative, delicious, and presented with class and attention to detail. The fact that this B& B is outside the city was a huge plus for us especially once in the city where we saw/ heard all the construction noise and confusion. Taking the bus presented no problem as Jean sold us the bus passes and pointed us to the bus stop. Upon leaving, we were even given Georgette's tips for our trip to Maine! We would definitely return to Au Bois Joli for the pleasure of Jean's famous Maple Syrup pie but also to share time with Jean & Georgette!

We had a wonderful thanksgiving week-end Au Bois Joli! Very cosy and welcoming! Close enough from the old town by bus. Our hosts were very helpful and even had bus passes available! The good was simply delicious! We recommend the Downtown Abbey room for its amazing ensuite bathroom! Go for it!

We stayed four days in this B&B. It is definitely the nicest B&B we have stayed in recently. The hosts Jean and Georgette will do everything they can to make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. They provided lots of useful information on what to see and do during our stay, The breakfast is light, tasty and very well presented. The living room is beautifully decorated and the guest rooms are very nice, The B&B is located in a quiet residential area about 5 km from the center of QC. You can park your car on the street in front of the house. Bus #11 will take you to the center of QC in 15 minutes (Jean and Georgette can provide tickets). Avenue Maguire with many nice restaurants and shops is just a few minutes walk away. We would love to stay in this B&B again if we make another visit to QC,

Room Tip: We stayed in room #2 and #3. Room #2 has a queen-size bed and a large luxurious jacuzzi type bathroo...

Fantastic place and Jean and Georgette just made me feel at home from the time I walked in the door until 5 days later when I regretfully had to leave. Not being able to speak french I was a little nervous but both hosts spoke very good English and were very informative about places to eat, where to go on walks etc. I used the bus daily from their place...3 min walk to bus stop..to go to old Quebec City. It was so easy and I loved coming back to a very beautiful, very quiet neighbourhood that just put me at peace. The breakfast meals were exceptional with lots of variety and everyday I had a piece of the best maple syrup pie. They even wrapped a piece up for me for my wait at the airport on my way home. I stayed in room number 3 - green room - that was with 2 double beds and loved all the space, fantastic bathroom and was so lovely to have my windows open every night listening to the birds and quiet. The bed was really comfortable, high quality sheets and the whole room very clean. Nice to be able to control the room temperature.
Enjoyed the tea provided every night and just had a fantastic stay. Highly recommend this place to everyone. I am so bringing my friends and family back with me the next time I visit Quebec City.

Some guests leave their own marks and reading your comment, we immediately remembered the good laughter as well as the enlivening of the atmosphere in the dining room each morning. What a pleasure we had during that week, one of the most wonderful of this ending busy season. Come again, and yes, bring along your friends and family! We would make sure to create great memories for you all. Thank you for all the joy you brought to Au Bois Joli.

After staying in 2 very good hotels in Montreal and Malbei, we arrived in Quebec for the last leg of our trip and stayed in Au Bois Joli. As soon as we arrived I loved the place and felt like home ( or the dream home I wish I had). It was the best and the most enjoble accomodation we had in this trip by far despite being the most economical one as well.
The hosts were most welcoming and trying their best to make sure their guests have a great time. Ofcouse the famous breakfast is out of this world. I haven't had such a great one even in 5 star hotels. It's 3 course with a fruit based starter, a different sort of omellette everyday as maincourse and cake or tart for desert.
The location is a very nice residential part of quebec, a few minutes walk to a street where there are restaurants and supermarkets. We tried the thai there, it was really good.
The old town is a 10 min drive from this area.
I definetely recommend Au Bois Joli if you are to visit Quebec.

Room Tip: 2 double beds in room 3, ideal for a family
