      Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau des Tourelles Quebec City

      Great Stay at the C d T

      from

      This was, indeed a truly great stay at the Chateau des Tourelles B & B.

      The neighbourhood was not-over-the-top touristy. Full of colourful locals and yet at the same time homely and safe. Also only a short walk to the walled city. Terrific location to explore on foot and sample the local restaurants. Try the local "sugar pie".

      We stayed in Annie's Room (no 4) which was upstairs on the corner. One minor criticism was the noise at night from the street. There seemed to be a few boy racers in town each night we were there.

      However, the room was fine. A comfortable queen size bed. Not a real lot of room in the bathroom, but fine for our short two night stay.

      The host, Allan, was gracious, friendly and introduced us to the rest of the clan; sister and Aunty who help him run the Inn. They have expanded into the building next door and breakfast was served in this section.

      Up on the roof is a gardened terrace. What a great place to sip from a nice red and watch the sun go down!

      Parking was a minor inconvenience. i.e. a few blocks away. But, Quebec City is for walking and not using a car. So once the car was unloaded outside the Inn's front door and the car parked, it stayed there until it was time to leave. Parking was, however, secure and only $5/day.

      We would be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Very average place

      from

      We stayed at this b&b on our first night in the city because we didn't know any better. Next day we walked around and came across a few wonderful places for similar price within the city walls. The location of this b&b is really bed, on a noisy, unpleasant part of Saint Jean street (which is too touristy and noisy anyway). The staff was disinterested in servicing us (we received no suggestions to the question about good restaurants in teh area). The room seemed clean, but the bathroom didn't have a fan or an openning window (and the shower had the temperature control working the opposite way, starting with hot water). It's an ok place to spend a night if you are not familiar with the city. I really hope that excited reviewers on this board found other, really nice places to stay in Quebec City.

      Add to your Quebec City experience

      from

      My husband and I had been referred to this B&B by a friend and we would refer everyone to stay at the Chateau des Tourelles. The location was perfect, just a short walk to Old Quebec City, lots of shops and restaurant close by. The owners were friendly, helpful, just plain wonderful. The breakfast was unique and always very tasty and you never left the table hungry. Our room was very clean and spacious and they have a number of different suites to pick from. The Chateau des Tourelles is very charming you will love it.

      Our stay at the Chateau des Tourelles added to our holiday and we would go back year after year. We can't say enough good things about the Chateau des Tourelles, you just have to see for yourselves.

      We also loved the skiing near Quebec City.

      Charming! Chic!

      from

      Our absolute favorite b&b in Canada!!!!

      Chic, charming and clean. fabulous views and delicious breakfast. Very comfy beds (which doesnt always happen at b&b's)

      Very neat little thing too is the violin making shop in the basement.

      We will be back!!!

      Great little place!

      from

      My husband and I stayed here in Septmeber 2005. We were impressed. The rooms were clean and bright and nicely furished. The chracter of the old building (crooked floors, tiny staircases) was charming and very "old Quebec" feeling. The rooftop baclony was lovely and provided a nice view of the city although it was quite rainy while we were there so we didn't use it as much as we have hoped. The breakfasts were lovely and served in the bright and cheery breakfast room on the seconf dloor. We stayed three nights and each morning we took advantage of the free breaky. Coffee or tea, accompanied by a fruit cup and croissant adn then the main entree, usually a lovely omlette or pancakes etc. The hosts were friendly and accomodating and spoke english as our French was not so good! They were understandiung when our bottle of red wine leaked on their lovely peice of furniture. We felt so bad. The only other comment I can make about this property is it's location - not the most amazing but for the price it's perfect. We didn't mind walking to the sights of old quebec (about 10 minutes) and the there is so much to see on the way to old Quebec you are glad for the out-of-walls location. at $95 per night in high season, we were very happy and would gladly recccomend this B&B to anyone.

      Great B&B - room, breakfast, location fantastic

      from

      This B&B was a great place to stay. We had a lovely room, with wooden floors, comfortable bed, enough space. The bathroom was compact and small but enough room to get around. Our room was airconditioned which was a Godsend given the very hot weather at the time.

      It is a short walk (10 mins) from the old town, but you walk down a main street with some great restaurants and shops which make the time go very quickly.

      Breakfast was hearty and served in a nice dining area. The staff were helpful and friendly, in particular the owner who showed interest in his guests and was often around for a chat.

      Charming and friendly

      from

      My wife and I prefer to stay in B&B's or small hotels. This B&B was excellent for accomodations, location and friendlyness. The rooms are small, yet very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast and sitting room are bright and welcoming. The neighborhood offers convenient shopping, dining and is very close to all historic attrations. Our host was helpful with recommending tours, museums and restaurants that suited our taste, vegetarian. The rooftop terrace offers a lovely view and place to relax or read. We will be back.

      Great B&B-- lovely building

      from

      We stayed at this B&B in June 2005-- it definitely exceeded expectations! Their website is extensive with lots of pictures-- very accurate. The rooms have lots of touched unexpected for a B&B-- hardwood floors, antique furniture, nice sinks & bathrooms, a small television, good bedding, clean and modern and devoid of chintzy cheesiness. My only complaint might be the air conditioner-- it worked well, but was pretty noisy. We would leave it on for an hour and then use the fan after that, and that was okay. The building itself is very striking with its towers-- and the roof terrace was awesome. One of my best memories is sipping wine on the terrace watching the sunset over the river and Old Town. The breakfast was very very good, and the dining room sunny with fresh flowers and newspapers.

      The B&B is only 10 mins from the city gates, and is in an actual neighborhood instead of the tourist craziness that is Old Quebec. Which is amazing, by the way.. but I was happy enough not to stay there! All the shops along the street leading to the old city gates were fanastic-- lots of nice restaurants nearby too. Parking for this b&b was in a lot around the corner. Overall an excellent stay-- would definitely come back again.

      I loved the breakast

      from

      My family went to the Montreal Jazz Festival and visited Quebec City for the first time this July. 3 months ago, I planned this trip but already it was not easy to find the cheap hotel so I decided to stay in the Bed and Breakfast the first time in my life. I found this Bed and Breakfast through the internet. They had their own home page. First of all, I liked their name,

      Chateau...it sounded very charming, attractive and romantic. Secondly, they had a room which is a suite. The third, I liked the price. It was very reasonable. I could not reseve the suite but we got a single room. When we got there, there was no one there. So we had to wait about 15 minutes before someone showed up. There is no bathtub but it was okay with only the shower. The room was very small but very cute and we could overlook the street from our windows, which was fun. The convertible bed for my son was not comfy but our queen size bed was okay. They had a terrace which you could view the whole city with St. Lawrence River. When the sun went down, the view was awesome. The price included the breakfast. This breakfast was fantastic. It was very delicious. It was located somewhat off the center of city, however, you could walk around the local stores which were not commercialized. Even slow walking, you could get to the city center by 10 minutes. So no problem. Overall, I really liked this place. I can recommend to anyone.

      Wonderfull B&B in Quebec City

      from

      My parents and I stayed recently at the Chateau de Tourelles B&B in Quebec City. It is just outside the old city walls, about a pleasant 10 minute walk, but it was great to be in a real neighbourhood with excellent local restaurants as opposed to being in a very touristy spot. The B&B was very comfortable, we took the room called Irma which is essentially a small suite-great if you want extra space or have kids. The price was very reasonable, the breakfast good and I would reccommend it wholeheartedly to anyone visiting Quebec.

He was also telling us how people have offered him money for the block of apartments he owns and he's told them to "f@rk off". I told you he was passionate. He bids us abientot and we drop our bags and look for food.

Along the way was passed a mural which was drawn to depict key historical moments in Levis' history. There were depictions of how the native people lived in this area along with scenes of the first settlers arriving to this region. The scenes then progressed to showing different industrial trades that devloped in the area and of ...

      It was so easy getting my stuff in and out. It was so comfortable to carry too. Though not very fashionable it made me look more like a tough traveller.

I had experienced the best that the Old Upper Town, and some of what the Lower Old Town, had to offer, food, historic sites, harbour views, music, buskers, artists, galleries, cafes, museums and markets. I would be very sorry to leave it behind, but was so glad I'd made the decision months ago that Quebec City was the perfect place to end my month long travel Oddessy.

      ... like a piece of Europe has been lifted up and placed here.

      For those of you interested in history, Quebec City is perched atop cap Diamant, overlooking the St Lawrence River and is one of the landmarks of North American history. Samuel de Champlain saw the potential of this natural citadel, and founded a fur trading post here in 1608. As religious institutions and government buildings sprang up within the fortifications of the Upper Town, merchants ...
