... by the Citadelle, which is still operating as a military base and is also home to the Governor General's second residence. Kate and I were lucky enough to tour both the residence and the Citadelle in one day. Other highlights of Quebec City included the Musee de Civilisation, the Montmorency Falls, the Musee National des Beaux-Arts du Quebec, and the food.
Kate has gone on at some length about the food in her own blog so ...

After taking our final night time shots we rushed down to the riverside to catch the 8pm ferry back to Quebec. At this time of night the ferries only go every 60 minutes so we didn’t want to miss this one and be waiting until 9pm! Once back on ‘our’ side of the river we took some more night time photos after climbing more steps and hills before returning to our hostel after a good work ...

History of Quebec City
Founded as a trading post in 1608 by French explorer Samuel de Champlain, located on cliffs that provided an impenetrable fortress above the St. Lawrence River. The river gave the new settlement a deep water port, and the cliffs the ability to protect ships. The settlement became a growing base for trade and exploration of the new area. The city expanded the only way it ...

Checked in, boarded the plane to Philadelphia for our connecting flight to Quebec, which then decided to wait on the runway for 20 minutes for clearance.

Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau des Tourelles Quebec City
This was, indeed a truly great stay at the Chateau des Tourelles B & B.
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
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.
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!!!
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
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
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.
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.
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,
Wonderfull B&B in Quebec City
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.
