This was our second stay in this hotel. We were pleased to see improvements and reactions to our comments made as a result of our first stay. All staff made us feel important, particularly Roch, Martin, Laurianne and Stephanie. They were friendly,courteous and helpful. Our room was clean and had a formidable view on the river and fireworks as a bonus. The bed was comfortable, as usual. This hotel will continue to be our choice when travelling to this area in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor with a view on the river.

Stayed 1 night everything was good other than the bed it was very dirty (black hair all over the bed). Also the pool had a big clump of hair floating & hair on pool deck. Would not come back and definitely not recommend this hotel.

our weekend started out very poorly with our bus driver not knowing where he was going and dropping us off about 5 city blocks away from our intended stop. Once we made it to the hotel the staff were very accommodating and curtious and geniunly concerned about the walk we'd just made. Our room was beautiful, clean and cool, we had a beautiful veiw of the Jacques Cartier Park and the river. We were close to the restaurant and the pier where our intended cruise (which never happened) was supposed to leave from. The pool is wonderful just the right temp. Breakfast is priced right and the food very good. I certainly would recommend this hotel for a short stay or long stay as the price was right for the service and cleanliness. 5 star in my book.

Room Tip: front facing rooms better view non smoking suites best

We stayed at this hotel during our car trip around west Canada.
We stayed 2 nights and during this our rental got a flat tyre, we contacted road assistance but did not believe it would take nearly 5 hours to sort. As we could not have breakfast asked staff to keep us cereal, fruit for our return expecting to have in our room.
On our return we were sent to the dining room where everything including cooked food was waiting for us. This was well after closing time for the cafe, we were gob smacked.
Had the staff in fits of laughter over our experience.
Thanks to all an amazing experience we will never forget

The Best Western - Gatineau is located directly cross the river from Sussex Drive, the National Gallery of Canada, the Parliament Buildings etc. Just walk across the Alexandra Bridge and you are there. It is also across the street from the fabulous Canadian Museum of History a must see in Ottawa. The hotel meets all he expectations of a Best Western hotel with a nice restaurant (great buffet breakfast), a pool and other amenities. Rooms are large and comfortable and the one we had on the eight floor had a balcony overlooking a fabulous view of the Ottawa River, Parliament, The Peace Tower, the National Gallery etc. The night we stayed at the Best Western - Gatineau there was a beautiful fireworks show right in front of the hotel launched from a barge in the middle of the river. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the higher floors with a balcony overlooking the city centre.

This Best Western Plus Gatineau-Ottawa was at the bottom #7 of the 8. Even tho it was the highest price of all the Best Westerns, I had hoped the room rate was worth the cost. The front desk was friendly & welcoming. Our view room had dust bunnies on the ceiling & the balcony was littered with cigarette butts & dirt. It was the smallest room of the 8, & there was no microwave, so the wife couldn't have a cup of tea. The bed was comfortable with little or no noise at night. I'm sure the parking charges incurred offset the cost of snow removal. Some of that money should go making the parking lot presentable at least during the tulip festival. The lot was pretty bad, & to beat it all 2 days as we returned one employee was smoking under the portico, so entry through a fog of smoke. The breakfast hit the very bottom, as it was like eating 3rd day leftovers & they had the cajoles to pile on the extra charge. Very few guests ate there, & probably shouldn't have myself. I have a hard believing this was a BW Plus. I guess if you have captive audience, & why this place has such a high rating. The inspection team should reevaluate.

Stayed there in May for the Festibière de Gatineau. 115$ Govt rate. I biked there and had my bike stowed for the duration of stay so good option for cyclist.

Check in was friendly and was provided room on upper floor. Room was good size but only had a small windiw which made for a claustrophobic feel. Good queen bed, LCD TV with plenty of channels, decent sized bathroom, free wifi.

The pool was decent but the corridor leading to the pool is a bit long and in need of reno. Small gym with limited equipment.

Breakfast was a plus, for 8$ buffet, with crepes and maple syrup included. Overall, worthwhile economical option for those visiting our fair city.
