“Back again, and just as wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2007

Just a brief note to say that my mother and I went back to visit Quebec City again for several days at Christmastime again this year, and it was once again an absolutely wonderful experience. We stayed in a different room, which we loved just as much, if not more, and Marielle and her sweet kitties were again fantastic hosts. We even arrived on Christmas Day and were welcomed like family. I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough.

  • Liked — The hostess, the comfort of the room and the proximity to EVERYTHING in QC.
  • Disliked — Nothing.

My wife and I visited Quebec City for 3 days in February 2007 and really enjoyed this hotel. The location is perfect and the rooms are even nicer than the pictures make it seem (we stayed in room 5, which was especially great). Would highly recommend for a romantic getaway.

The location of this B&B was fabulous; close to the shopping, restaurants and the famous Chateau Frontenac. We stayed in the room on the top floor, which was like a little apartment with a kitchen, bathroom and two separate bedrooms (climbing the many stairs was a good way to work off the treats we had eaten that day). The street was quiet for being in the heart of the city. The breakfast was store bought pastry but there are plenty of nearby coffee shops and restaurants to go to. Mireille Roy was a lovely hostess who speaks English very well and was helpful in arranging parking and general information about the city. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to Quebec City.

We planned a trip to Quebec City to celebrate a surprise 50th birthday party with a bunch of girls. We chose The Hotel Maison Du Fort after doing much researching on the internet. We had the opportunity to make many fun arrangements ahead of time with the owner, Marielle Roy. She iss a delightful lady and was very helpful. She allowed us to decorate and celebrate with much encouragement. She asked us what time we wanted our coffee and muffins in the morning and even scheduled the maid service around what we had planned. That way we could sleep as late as we wanted and still have a hot cup of coffee when we awoke and never were rushed out of our rooms for cleaning. The hotel itself was charming and impeccably maintained. We had 10 of the 11 rooms so were able to get a true taste of the atmosphere. Two of the rooms were so large that we were all able to gather comfortably.
The weather was very stormy during our stay but it did not all stop us from having a great time. One night we ordered dinner in, it was delicious. We sat around in our pajamas and drank wine, ate pizza, salads and sandwiches and had a very fun slumber party. The location was perfect, right across the street from The Chateau Frontenac. We were able to go there for drinks at night and enjoy the views and atmosphere and then just a short walk and we were back to our room. Shopping and restaurants were all within easy walking distance and Marielle made very nice recommendations for dinner.
We are already planning on going back to spend more time in Quebec City and will not stay anywhere else.

This little hotel in Quebec City is in the middle of the old city, very convenient to walk to all major atractions which made a unforgetable vacations for us. The owner is so incredible nice that she even take us in our rented car to the parking lot so we dont have to pay the fortune that the Fontegac Hotel Parking charges you. The rooms are very well decorated (very french!) with cats motives and the small breakfast is no small at all!! its full of great home made goodies that made our morning start something wonderful. The staff is simply amazing and helpfull and I would recommend this hotel to anyone interested on going to Quebec for vacations. Its a incredible deal for your money!!

  • Liked — the staff
  • Disliked — the stairs
  • Tips/Secrets — ask first where to park you car you can save a lot of money

Maison du fort has beatiful rooms, and a really friendly owner - as all the other reviews will also tell you. We were welcomed by Marielle and really appreciated her advice and help throughout our stay. She'll do pretty much anything to help you - and as the other reviews say, is a wealth of information about the city and things to see and do.

We stayed in room number 1 (you can see pics of all rooms on the MdF website - just google to find it), which was really beautiful. The only complaint we had was that the antique bed creaked an awful lot. It was so bad that it affected the sleep we got. Marielle said that nobody else had mentioned it to her - but I'm sure that it's been sorted out now that she knows!

I'd definitely come back to MdF, but I think I'd have one of the larger rooms on the upper floors (rooms 1 and 2 are on the main entrance floor) - they are still a bargain, and also look beautiful.

  • Liked — Beautiful rooms, friendly owner
  • Disliked — Creaky bed
  • Tips/Secrets — Get a room upstairs with views

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending two nights at Hotel Maison du Fort. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, fresh and comfortable. Our hostess, Marielle, was wonderful - helpful and accommodating. The property is located in the heart of old Quebec. We would definitely return!

  • Liked — Beautiful renovations, gorgeous decor, lovely hostess
  • Disliked — Parking two blocks away, but this was not a big inconvenience - You can load/unload at door
