I have stayed in a lot of B&Bs in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia, but Auberge J A Moisan is in an extraordinary class by itself. I’ll try not to repeat what many of the other reviews have already said. Francophones use the word convivial much more often than anglophones, although it is the same word and has the same meaning in both languages when applied to a person:. That is, cheerful, friendly, sociable, and good company. I can’t think of a better word to describe the proprietor, Clément. He was all of these things and more. We flew into Montreal and drove to Quebec City arriving near 9:30 PM. Although check-in is at 5:00 PM Clément went out of his way to welcome us at that late hour, despite the fact that he must get up very early in the morning to start breakfast.
Speaking of the breakfast….that was a wonderful daily event, with Clément explaining the courses and how they complemented each other. Every day a different smoothie, then a starter followed by a masterpiece of a main course. Extraordinary!
The auberge is beautiful with just the right touches. It is perfectly situated on the lively rue St-Jean, 5 minutes by foot from the walled city, 20 mins by foot from the Montcalm district with its great restaurants, Battlefields National Park and Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and 20 mins by foot from the trendy and up-and-coming St-Roch district. The walled city is spectacular but many tourists never venture beyond it and miss out on the places where locals go for dining and strolling. I’d love to write a book entitled “What to Do in Quebec After You’ve visited the Walled City,” but until then, Clément will have all the answers.
Don’t miss this wonderful and special place to stay!
