This is a lovely place to stay. We were charmed by the eclectic mix of antique furniture and modern art pieces, the beautiful lighting, and the delightful breakfast area. As a family of 5, we were thrilled to find a B&B that had a single room large enough for all of us- we had a queen, a double, and a single, with a private bath, nice closet, refrigerator, TV, and large sitting area. The shuttered windows looked out on a narrow street in walking distance of everything... we could even see the Chateau Frontenac a few blocks away from the terrace sitting area. Our host, Jolanta, had everything organized so that if you needed any supplies (ironing board, towels, Kleenex, etc.) they were easily accessible and you didn't have to wait for someone to bring them to you. Breakfast was amazing and featured a different hot dish every day (delicious zucchini egg casserole, homemade French toast, potato and sausage casserole, fluffy scrambled eggs with bacon...) along with wonderful variety of fruit, cheeses, breads, cereals, nuts, and amazing cakes, plus extras such as yogurt, sliced ham, radishes, potato salad, etc. This is served buffet style on china with silverware. We really felt spoiled. The location allowed us to come back to the hotel in-between visits to attractions, and made it easy to take short rests between all the step-climbing that tourists in Quebec City do. Jolanta was very kind in helping us to make arrangements-- she even made a phone call for us to change our rental car plans when the agent spoke only French. She is ready to welcome guests in any way but does not intrude at all. We stayed 3 nights, and just wish we could have stayed longer.
