“A Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights this past June. Of the many choices in Quebec City, it is no wonder that this is #1.

First of all, there is the hostess and owner. She really makes you feel at home. She works very hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Whether it be making reservations and finding directions to a restaurant because you do not speak French to getting the wireless internet working properly, she seems to be perpetually available and helpful.

As for the rooms, they are spacious and beautifully decorated. We stayed on the top floor and had a many windows and a wonderful view. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, and there were more pillows in the room than one person can ever possibly need. I simply can not say enough good things about this small hotel.

A few points to consider: There are several resident cats (this is mentioned on the website, when you make reservations, and when you arrive so it is no surprise). They are friendly and keep to themselves so there is no issue. I only mention that in case you are allergic. The cats, however, are not in the guest rooms. Secondly, when they tell you a room is on the third floor, they really mean it! If stairs are an issue, pick one of the lower rooms. I am sure they are all just as amazing as the top floors.

It also has a great location. It is easy to walk from there down to the water seeing all the shops and attractions that the old city has to offer on the way down. Once down, there is an elevator that will take you back up for a couple of dollars and it is a short walk from there to the hotel.

Room Tip: If stairs are an issue, pick a lower floor. It is quite a hike up the stairs, especially with lugga...

Our vacation to Quebec City was unforgetable, and the warmth and hospitality shown to us by Marielle was unsurpassed. Her B&B was recommended to us by a friend who had lived in Quebec. It was an outstanding choice! The location was perfect--close to the water, a short walk to the Funiculaire, right by the Fort. Marielle helped us with dinner reservations and suggestions for the day. Our room (#1) was perfect!

We met two other couples in Quebec, for our second visit to the city. Marielle is most welcoming and speaks fluent English, in addition to French. She cared for our group by making reservtions at excellent restaurants, had many suggestions for free evening entertainment and helped us plan day trips inside and out of the city.

Perfectly located, inside the city walls, near historic sites and within easy walking distance of many bistros, shops and places of interest. Marielle welcomes families with children but the inn is also the perfect romantic get away. We hope to return soon.

We have been to Quebec City in the past but decided to look for a unique hotel in the old City near the main tourist area. Maison Du Fort is the perfect location. We were traveling with our 1 year old daughter, which made the logistics of staying in a small hotel challenging, but well worth it in this case. From the moment we arrived, Marielle treated us like family, even remembering that we were coming with our young daughter. She made a point to check on us and see our daughter a number of times during our stay. She assisted with our bags, helped us check in, and pointed out areas of interest to visit during our stay. Most of the rooms are on the small side but they are very clean and accommodating. We had a continental breakfast each morning and were certainly made to feel as if our comfort truly mattered.

The location of the hotel is two blocks from the main road and boardwalk overlooking the St. Lawrence and three blocks from the tourist streets. We have certainly found our first choice in accommodations when we visit Quebec City in the future and would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for an outstanding location in a historic part of town and the best service that we have experienced in our travels. Thank you Marielle. We hope to see you again soon.

This was my first visit to Quebec City and from the moment we arrived at Maison du Fort, we experienced the wonderful hospitality of Marielle. From the charming ambiance of our room to the fabulous central location, Maison du Fort is a cut above your normal B&B. And you don't have to break to bank to stay here. For the men out there, my husband gives the shower pressure a thumbs up.

We got lucky with this hotel as she only had one small room left during the busy music festival. Marielle was very kind and helpful, accommodating our early arrival from California on an overnight flight. The room was perfect for a couple...small but immaculate and very attractive. The location is outstanding, especially during the festival as we could open the windows and hear the music at the Plains of Abraham or close the windows if desired. The hostess helped show us great things to do that weren't in the guide book. It was one of the best vacations my husband and I have ever had.

Room Tip: Book early if going in July as there is a busy music festival.

In looking for a quaint place to get away for a few days, my friend found this delightful hotel right smack in the middle of Vieux Quebec and walking distance to everything which was good considering we flew in and had no car. Marielle Roy, our hostess was superbly attentive and knowledgeable about the areas attractions. The rooms are tastefully decorated with an eye to the period of the hotel and humor in the feline theme. To say the entire place was immaculate is an understatement and her two "chats" are discreet and inobstrusive. .. It felt like home away from home. We enjoyed our visit immensely and Marielle's sunny personality, un délice de cisaillement. Definitely would return.

Room Tip: Some rooms have shared bathroom. The rooms are on all four floors and there is no elevator. There...
