La Maison William Wakeham
Ranked #10 of 10 Gaspe B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We spent three nights at the William Wakeham and throughly enjoyed our stay. The inn is an original building from 1860 across the street from the river. While I was not crazy about the style of furniture and choice of decor, the house itself is quite nice with large rooms and high ceilings. The guest rooms are spacious and are more like a suite than a room. Our bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and a shower. A flat screen tv & wifi bring the room into the current century. But the real reasons to stay here are the fantastic restaurant and wonderful staff. The chef is a first rate and a real treasure to find in this small town. Menu is sophisticated and delicious. Wait staff double as hotel employees and are helpful & pleasant. We were delighted with our choice.

Had a wonderful dinner at the William Wakeham Maison. Superbly prepared food. Not budget category, but fresh and excellent. We passed it and decided to stop in and all members of our family were very happy with their meals. Outstanding, professional service.

Room Tip: Did not stay there but it was a beautiful historic home

The hotel is quaint, rooms delightfully decorated, the food is magnificent and the host, Desmond Ogden, does everything to ensure guests feel welcome and comfortable. If you want a truly memorable stay in Gaspé, stay at the Maison William Wakeham!

We stayed here for two nights In May with our friends during a touring holiday in Gaspesie. It was a memorable experience due to the wonderful team working there and the owner/chef Desmond.
This is a historical inn and we stayed in the "Reine" and "Rustique" rooms. The Reine is like going back in time with the four poster bed and window seats. If you take the Rustique room you will be sharing with a moose head but this all adds to the charm and originality of the place! These are not your usual standard hotel rooms but stand out because of that!
We ate in the restaurant each evening and it was definitely a good decision. The service was professional yet friendly (thank you Real!) and we got good advice about the dishes on offer. The scallops (petoncles) were delicious and the lamb we had on the second night is definitely to be recommended! However the best of all was a lobster bisque made by Desmond and which we all thought to be the best we had ever tasted! Good wine list with very reasonable prices.
Breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked to order with charming service (didnt get the name sorry!).
We all agreed that we had really enjoyed the hospitality at the Wakeham and we would recommend you give it a try if you are in Gaspe!

Room Tip: If you want to go back in time, then choose the "Reine" room!

This hotel has unique rooms, every room is different. The food is among the best I have ever had anywhere. Desmond and his staff made us feel very welcome and their attention to detail is fabulous. Highly recommended.

Every one was so friendly and the food just right, then to round it all off, at breakfast we discovered the Desmond came from the North of England like myself. Would not hesitate to recommend this Auberge to anyone visiting Gaspe

You will not be dissappointed. Our stay at Maison Wakeham made our visit to Gaspe all that more spectacular. Desmond and his staff were fabulous and made us feel so welcome for our week's stay. Our view of the Bay from our room (The Baker) was second to none. As avid travellers, we have stayed in many hotels and B & B's and Maison Wakeham exceeded our expectations, from superb breakfasts, room cleanliness to friendly staff. We highly recommend this Auberge to everyone travelling to the beautiful Gaspe.
