We booked for June 22nd and 23rd to have a relaxing time in the Eastern Townships at the end of a Tour of the North Shore and Gaspe. Upon arriving at the parking lot my wife's comment of the peeling clapboard in two shades of yellow..."badly in need of a paint job, let's hope it's not a sign of the rest of the place". Cancellation was 48 hours notice based on 2 days stay, so it was too late to back out! We checked in, were assigned a 2nd floor room, two heavy bags from a 10 day trip, only to discover no elevator and no offer of assistance from the desk clerk. We are both retired, so up the open steel staircase encased in glass at 28 Centigrade we went. On the positive side, we weren't assigned to the 3rd floor!
Remaining positive, the room was large and clean, so large that lying on the bed one almost needed binoculars to view the 22" Tube TV! The "woodland" view we chose in an effort to be frugal, was a row of trees that did not block out either the sound or the view of the cars parading in and out the parking lot behind for a Theatre Performance next door at 8:00 pm and over much later! Having spent Saturday touring around the Townships from North Hatley to the Wine Route, we arrived back with not hotel parking available parking only the very back lot for the theatre traffic. When I approached the desk clerk, he was essentially apathetic. On route to our room there were bags of garbage from the maid still lying in the hall at 6:00 pm.
This is not a 4 star property...with no elevator this is a very "tired" property, at best a 2 star 3 story motel that charges 18 dollars/person for a buffet breakfast and the "gourmet" dinner that evening appeared to be in steam trays too! We ate at Mikes.
In all fairness we did not eat a meal there after we saw the attention to detail of the exterior paint job! Breakfast was at Valentines 89 Boulevard de Bromont Bromont, QC J2L 2K5 2 eggs, sausage, bacon or ham, real home fries, toast and coffee for just over 5 dollars an excellent meal and value with friendly and attentive staff and an outdoor patio.
Auberge Chateau-Bromont...a most disappointing end to what was an otherwise excellent trip around the Gaspe...positive reviews of those properties and restaurants to follow.
