The final stop of this long and eventful day was the Carnaval parade. We found spots with a clear view near the start of the parade route and cheered along as we waited for Bonhomme Carnaval's float at the end.

Discussed it with Richard and booked it online through Booking.com. Emailed Motel Aufleuve D'Argent to confirm there was WIFI, kitchen for cooking and parking ad there was. Richard watched the last of the English speaking DVD's I listened while typing and then it was bedtime.

QC is the only intact fortified town in N America north of Mexico. I enjoyed the Citadel, which is a fort that was built largely by the British after they invaded and won the territory from the French in the early 1800’s. Very interesting for me and I did a tour of this, but found the guide a bit rushed and I would’ve liked to explore a bit more but you couldn’t do it on your ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Chateau Bellevue Quebec City
Better than the Chateau Frontenac...!
For the past 6 years, I've spent part of my December/January holiday at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec. This year, my husband and I decided to stay somewhere a little less expensive and found the listing for the Chateau Bellevue here on TripAdvisor. If you're looking for the glitz of the Frontenac, by all means stay there....But if you don't mind staying right next door for less than half the price, stay at the Chateau Bellevue. I am a meticulous cleaner myself, and I have to give the Bellevue top scores in the clean category...it was spotless! The breakfast offered toast/bagels/yogurt/juice/cereals and a coffee machine which we avoided using the first morning (we're both very picky about good coffee) but were amazed how good it was when we decided to try it after seeing others going back for second cups at breakfast. Definitely request a room on the top (3rd) floor, as it is the quietest. (We moved up from our first night spent on the 2nd floor.) There's an elevator, so you won't have to walk up. The parking ($10 a day) is also a steal in the area. (The Chateau charges $25).
We would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. You just can't beat the location... or the warm down comforters on the beds...or the newly renovated bathrooms with deep tubs...At this price, stay twice as long and be sure to have dinner at the Crooked Steeple (Another best kept secret in town.) By the way, the front desk at the Chateau Bellevue doesn't know where this restaurant is. You'll have to shuffle over to the concierge at the Chateau Frontenac and ask. (We used the concierge services at the Frontenac during our whole stay...they'll never know you're not staying there!)
A life saver
Hotel Chateau Bellevue is a life saver. After 4 of us turned up in Quebec City on a summers afternoon with no hotel reservations and had trailed round the city for hours to find no rooms available, we made a final stop at Chateau Bellevue. Whilst they had no hotel rooms available they offered us an apartment across the road at a ridiculously cheap price. We snapped it up and found ourselves with a large living space, kitchen, bathroom and private balcony. The hotel is conveniently located for exploring the city on foot but without the hustle and bustle of some areas.
We loved the hotel
We returned last night from an excellent visit to Quebec-We found the location of the hotel to be amazing-easy access to everything we wanted. The concierge helped with scheduling a city tour. He also helped us book our meals at fantanstic restaurants in Vieux Quebec. We loved the food and services making us feel as if we were in a European town. The concierge also helped us get a taxi to a restaurant across the street from the theater where we saw an excellent Verdi opera. Our room overlooked the park and we could see the river as well. The breakfasts were very generous in choices. We apppreciated the valet parking as well. We would gladly return to this hotel again.
Great location, great value!
We stayed at the Chateau Bellevue and it was very nice! Terrific location across from a park, and close by the Chateau Frontenac. An excellent value. We had a superior room at the end of the main floor, and found it to be quiet. We also found the hotel's restaurant package to be a good value, but with some important caveats. We had the fixed price dinner at three restaurants, and they differed significantly in the items available as part of the package. Our favorite was Au Anciens Canadiens. Paris Brest had fewer choices, but the food was excellent. At La Closerie, we were told that the package could only be used at the Bistro, and it was terrible. There was virtually no choice of menu items, and the food wasn't very good. I wouldn't go to La Closerie again.
Do yourself a favor by not staying at Chateau Bellevue
Our top priced room was noisy, cramped and a mish mash of color and design. Our comments to management fell of deaf ears. Quebec offers many better maintained and managed rooms at similar prices.
Nice but noisy
Very Nice hotel. Nice people. Not expensive. but very very noisy in the rooms, you can hear people talking in the lobby while sleeping in your bed.
Great Location, Great Service
Extremely nice accommodations in a terrific location! There is a park right in front of the hotel and the Chateau Frontenac could be seen from our window. Easy access to the citadel which is just 300 yards/meters away. Hotel staff were very helpful, even made us reservations. I recommend it highly.
Pleasant, clean 2* hotel in old Quebec
We stayed at the Chateau Bellevue for 1 night and it was a very welcome change from the previous evening at the Manoir St. Genevieve (never again).
The Fodor's guide is right on target with this hotel: it does offer modern, comfortable accommodations at reasonable prices. The hotel is clean, modern, and in an excellent location in the old town. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Although the hotel may not have the decorative charm of other B&B's, we didn't have any bad surprises here. For a 2* hotel, the Chateau Bellevue is definitely above avergae.
A Beautiful Hotel in a great location
What a charming hotel this was and at a wonderful price too. Located right in the shadow of the Chateau Frontenac on a delightfully quiet Park this hotel has everything you could possibly want. Our room faced the park and we had a slight view of the river. Our bathroom was beautiful and so was the room. The bedding was changed daily, top to bottom.
The desk staff could not have been nicer and valet parking was included. There will however be a small charge to park in the future.
In the off season a small breakfast is included but coffee is still availbale all day, and not just regular coffee, expresso, cappuccino, mocha and more. A very nice suprise. Also several different newspapers and free internet access in the lobby.
You can walk everywhere from here and the staff is more than happy to make dinner reservations for you even on the spur of the moment. We tried Cafe Conti on their recommendation and were delighted.
All this for $159 Cn and $10 off if you have AAA.
What a delight!
One feature of this hotel is that they have free parking. We merely pulled up in front of the hotel and didn't need to concern ourselves with the car at all!
The small room was compact yet cozy. The bathroom was recently remodeled and had top of the line fixtures. It felt quite European overall.
The lobby had coffee and a machine that served espresso, hot chocolate, mochachino and other beverages available all throughout the day and night.
I also liked the fact that they had a computer with internet access available for guests.
We could walk everywhere from the hotel, and when we were ready to drive off, the wonderful staff had the car ready for us in front of the hotel.
