Chateau Beauvallon Mont Tremblant
Historical Traveler Reviews Hacienda Abascal Quintanilla de Arriba
Wonderful service, beautiful small hotel, relaxing environment
We took advantage of the shoulder season at Tremblant and we were rewarded. Tremblant was quiet and we enjoyed being some of the very few cycling and hiking. Chateau Beauvallon is a real gem. The rooms are lovely, warm and thoughfully done. The facilities are not large but more than adequate and tastefully done. We enjoyed a number of visits to the outdoor hot tub. The staff were excellent as they were friendly and helpful. The food was quite good (definitely above the usual hotel blandness) and I felt it was good value. They were very accomodating to personal requests. If you are looking for an intimate, cozy environment with more personal attention than a large hotel (better service, better environment and less people) but not to personal as to be in a B&B (i.e. we like a lot of privacy), I definitely recommend it. The environment is very "nice" yet extremely comfortable and relaxing. We will certainly return.
The Real Luxury Lodge
What a Fantastic Hotel!
I was simply delighted by the service ( Valet service -was great!), the nice hottub and the region is fantastic!
What was also great with this hotel is that it is not right on the resort but just minutes from it so you have the quiet side close to the village.
There is also an excellent restaurant where we got to eat amazing food from a french chef and got an incomparable service from Christine a young,ambitious young lady that was also able to give us advise about the region!
The only thing missing... 24H room service !
I certainly recommend this hotel that is no doubt going to become a great small luxury hotel!
Want to go back today!
Just returned from 4 nights at Chateau Beauvallon and I want to go back! My husband, myself and our 2 kids stayed over the March break in a one bedroom suite. We had more than enough room and enjoyed every minute of if. There were lots of kids running around unattended but that is hardly the hotels fault. The hotel is beautiful, the staff attentive and very courteous and the shuttles to and from the hill, just icing on the cake. I would definately stay there again and am currently planning a return trip. One thing to keep in mind if you plan on cooking some of your meals....no frying pan. Other than that, everything you need is at your finger tips.
Brilliant new Hotel
My wife and I stayed here from 2nd to 7th March. We were recommended to the hotel and also read Tripadvisor reviews. I can strongly recommend this new hotel. The staff are great; the suite was brilliant (2 bathrooms, although our underfloor heating was not working or was not there).
We were visiting our son who was staying at SkileGap outside the village. The courtesy drivers could not have been better. Picked us up from the skiing, took us there, took our son back to his residence. The breakfasts were good and the evening meals were good, apart from one pasta which could have been better.
If you don't want to be in the centre of the village and don't want to ski in and out of a hotel this is the hotel for you. If we go back I would stay again.
The Perfect Balance: great for adults AND kids
My family and I stayed at Chateau Beauvallon for long 4-day weekend. Our flight was delayed getting to Tremblant so we arrived at the hotel very late, with 2 very tired kids (ages 6 aqnd 8). Knowing that we arrived late, there was a lovely plate of cheese and bread waiting in our room along with 2 huge chocolate chip cookies for the kids. This set the tone for the entire weekend of unbelievable service, spacious and comfortable accomodations, and delicious food and wine. There is so much to do in Tremblant and so much to do at the hotel. My kids loved swimming in the pool and hot tub. They loved the big hot chocolates they could drink in front of the fireplace. My wife and I loved the kid's movie Chateau Beauvallon showed on Saturday night (complete with popcorn machine) so we could dine alone. We were totally comfortable letting the kids watch the movie with other kids their age. Just the two of us had a wonderful dinner and bottle of wine...no kids!! Breakfasts are amazing. The hotel is very safe for kids and the staff is very accomodating to kids running around. This is the only hotel I've been where I let my kids take the key card and go to the room by themselves. An unforgettable experience. We can't wait to return.
Awesome, awesome, awesome
I stayed at Chateau Beauvallon over the Holidays. The food was excellent and the staff was incredibly friendly. My favorite part however, was the atmosphere. As you enter the hotel, you immediately feel like you are part of a beautiful ski lodge, with a roaring fireplace and a friendly neighborhood pub right off the lobby. Kudos to the proprietors for melding traditional warmth and charm with modern amenities (hot tub, pool, gym, etc.). I have recommended it to my friends and and plan to return soon.
Fantastic hotel ! 5 Stars all the way!
We stayed at the Chateau Beauvallon 24-26 Feb 2006, and had a fantastic time! The service was absolutely excellent from the moment we arrived. Upon arrival you are greeted by the valet/baggage helpers who are exceptionally helpful and don't wait for tips. The rooms have 2 flat screen televisions and a fireplace, furnished with exclusive furniture. The kitchen is most useful, so bring some food to cook up. Furthermore, everything is NEW, there is no weird smells or anything of the sort, smells like a new home. There are two bathrooms, which offer heated floors, clearly no cold feet when it comes to this resort. The hot tub is fantastic, located amongst a beautiful setting, isolated from the lights and sounds of the village, the only lights you will see are those of the stars above. The proximity of the hotel to the village is close, about a 2 minute drive, and don't worry, you will not have to do any driving while here, the hotel offers a FREE shuttle to and from the village, all you have to do is call. Over all we had an excellent getaway! partied hard in the village, and relaxed to the max at the hotel. Chateau Beauvallon, is where I'm staying from now on, and recommend it to all!
Definitely on the right track
Currently writing this from the hotel. They have free high wireless. We are in a two bedroom suite. Very nice and spacious with nice fireplace! The place is overall very clean. It offers shuttle service to the mountain on a regular basis.
The food is great most of the time. The breakfast buffet could be better. The waitstaff could be better trained. For instance a waitress should not be chewing gum as she is taking your order...but overall good service.
General overall attitude of staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. Definitely go out of their way to make you comfortable.
Would definitely recommed this new property.
Very pleased...great hotel
I agree entirely with the first review. My group of six stayed here from December 29, 2005 to January 1, 2006. We had a wonderful time. The hotel staff is simply amazing--very helpful and friendly. This hotel is less than a five minute drive to the Tremblant village. Shuttles from the hotel will drop you off wherever you want. We even got a ride to the Pedestrian Village on New Year's Eve at 11:30pm! The hotel suite itself is beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with 1 murphy bed, 1 sofa bed, kitchenette, fireplace and outdoor balcony facing poolside. There is a laundry room on each floor, although we did not use it. I found it a little hard to cook for a group of 6 every night in the kitchenette. We requested another pot since you are provided with only one, which would have made cooking pasta a little longer than usual. The kitchenette has a two burner stove and granite countertops with a small fridge, sink and small dishwasher. It's good for small meals though. There is no toaster in the suites, which would have come in handy. Other than that, I would say that everything was perfect. There are LCD TV's in every room (true that the TV's in the bedrooms kind of face down), however, if you want to play Xbox or watch DVD's (you can rent a DVD player from front desk free of charge) you can only do so in the bedrooms, as the A/V plugs are not accessible from the big screen LCD in the main family room. I think we got a really good deal for the period of our stay (New Year's). We paid $499 a night plus taxes which is peanuts in comparison to the Sommet des Neiges (also a lovely hotel) around Christmas/New Year's time (where we've stayed in 2003 and 2004). We were also able to stay for less than the 5 night minimum required at the Pedestrian Village hotels around this time. All in all, we had a great experience. Chateau Beauvallon is a lovely, medium-sized hotel with wonderful staff. We will definitely be coming back to visit and stay here in the near future!
Chateau beauvallon..very nice
My family and I are staying at the Chateau Beauvallon as I write this review on my daughter's laptop. Free internet, one point in the Beauvallon's favor. It is December 28th and our second night of a two night getaway. The hotel is a 70 room all suite complex that has only been open for a few weeks. And it shows. Room service missed us today, the waiter dropped an entrée and our LCD TV is angled stubbornly toward the floor in the bedroom. These are quibles really, the room is great, well designed with a galley kitchen (tiny, but enough to prepare light meals...who cooks a roast on vacation anyway?), terrific king bed in the alcove bedroom, good Murphy bed and a sofa bed to boot (not so good, but is there such thing as a good sofa bed anyway?) Two nice bathrooms, subway tile chic without the graffiti, well equiped. So the room is great, (this is the smallest room I'm in...still big enough for 2 adults and two large teens, for a couple of days anyway.) The rest of the hotel is modestly upscale. Indoor pool is small, excercise room small, restaurant small, but all well executed. Outdoor hot tub for the brave. Location is removed from the hubbub of the ski hill, but still only a five minute drive away. Shuttle service offered. Staff friendly and enthusiastic, the early glitches wil no doubt be solved with time. The newest kid on the block: pretty, pretty good.

Yesterday we had driven for several hours from Quebec City to Mont Tremblant. We were greeted on arrival by a cheerful Swiss man and a couple of Raccoons.
