“Magnificently Unique, Stunningly Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

I love this golf course!
There that's my review.............ahhh but you want more, ok let's see what we can say about this course and why you should do whatever you can to play it.

1. Designed by a famous golf course designer Stanley Thompson. (course was opened in 1931) who created a classic beauty a wonderfully picturesque design carved out of an area of natural beauty.
2. Great club house, with dining and shower facilities, simply top notched with dining facilities and pro shop and staff.
3. Excellent value for the money, green fee includes a cart which you definitely need for the up and down terrain.
4. Each hole is different, and tree lined by mature trees. Because of the mature trees you cannot see any hole but the one you are playing. Montebello is not a long course but very challenging, small undulating greens add to the challenge.
5. Course is not crowded, pace of play is good, 4 to 4 1/2 hours is normal.
6. Course condition is excellent, well kept and well manicured.
7. Montebello golf is just so very very picturesque and scenic and classic, it's like stepping back in time, a total joy. There are some stunning views from the tees, this course looks so good, you'll forget your score!
8. Electric powered golf carts, clean and quiet.
9. Great customer service by pro shop and staff out on the course, classy and friendly.
10. It's in Quebec, so you feel like you are on adventure to a unique destination just when you drive here. Montebello is a beautiful course, in gorgeous surroundings and is just such a totally classic joy to play! In the fall, with the leaves changing it is even more beautiful!

So far this year I've played here 6 times and each time it is a joy, I just get tired of it.
If you are in the Ottawa area, it is definitely worth the 1 hour drive to get here. Excellent value for the money! Chances are you'll see me there when you go, so please hi, or

“mid-summer break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Chateau Montebello is a beautiful resort. Do not expect the luxury of a city hotel. This is a holiday resort. Hotel clean, comfortable and quiet. Dining room excellent and service outstanding. Spa was great. Outdoor pool heated and welcoming. You can even order drinks and snacks for the pool area. Indoor pool was being renovated so not used. Many organized activities in surrounding area at extra cost. Rooms average size but well appointed. Outdoor BBQ each evening weather permitting. Excellent breakfast buffet (was included in our package). Only negative was the outdoor snack bar which served food and drinks in plastic containers (a bit cheap for a Fairmont!).

“girls weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The chateau montebello is beautiful if not a bit dated. The rooms are small, yet clean and comfortable. The larger restaurant was delicious. The property is beautiful and well kept. My only two negatives were, there is no where to get a drink after 12.00 and the "bar" has a bad smell.
perhaps it was a bit of an off weekend, there were many weddings taking place and alot of small children running the hallways.
