I chose this hotel given its location facing the St.Lawrence. We were in Riviere-du-Loup to take a whale-watch boat excursion. We did get to see a humback whale with her baby...of course...an amazing experience. The dock is about a 3 minute drive by car, but the hotel also offers the free use of bicycles and also provides complementary taxi service to/from the dock. Bicycles are at the hotel pool. The pool is beautiful and spacious and family-oriented with provision of pool toys and an adjoining hot tub. On pool site is a collection of universal weight gym equipment. The pool life quard was courteous and vigilant and there was a nice arrangement of poolside tables and chairs that allowed me to relax while I watched my son swim. Outside the pool is a beautiful backdrop of trees and terrace.
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. The room itself (#121) was in one of three buildings, which specifically had a view of the St. Lawrence and a French balcony. The room was very spacious, quiet and comfortable with two queen beds, fridge, ample desk area, a table with two comfortable chairs and cable TV. The decor was dated, although a beautiful large floral painting offset it. Parking was nearby, making unpacking easy.More
