Auberge Aux Deux Lions
Travel Blogs from Quebec City
It was an easy 3 hour drive up to Quebec, where the pine trees begin to take over from deciduous fall colours. We're now in hotels for 10 days and on our own. Time to spread out a bit, more reading and exploring, probably determined to some extent by variable weather. The dominance of French speakers, French signage and culture seems somehow …
Saturday 29th October
Today was going to be almost as long a day as when we flew from Auckland to LA. We didn't have to catch the bus from Whistler to Vancouver until 12:30 though so at least we could take it easy in the morning.
We took our time getting all packed up then walked to the post office in Whistler to send a few cards …
... it flattened out a bit and I thought I had made it, or possibly that I was about to die, I came to the street the hostel is on. "Street" in this case should be read as "hill". Even now that I've made it to the hostel and I can walk around without my suitcase my legs still protest. I wouldn't mind but it's a recurring theme in this city. It's made me realise that I've barely encountered a hill since I got to Canada. Well except for Mont ...
... we've been on also - not once did the dinner staff ask us how we enjoyed any of the dishes - they seemed to be so rushed off their feet - maybe they have more tables to look after than on other cruise lines. Minor details as cruising is still a relaxing way to holiday, especially with family...
We enjoyed traveling the East Coast seas with Helen and Beulah and hope we will cruise together again.
... visited the famous hotel Fountainac. Prices were very high, in my view. We adapted by buying bread and cheese and eating in our room. I took a few photos of the menu prices to give you a feel for the prices.The weather began to change our second day in Quebec. It got colder and darker as clouds rolled in. We visited the Catholic Church also named after the famous Notre Dame Basilica in France.
Our last day we took the bus back ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Aux Deux Lions Quebec City
Great place - very spacious
I stayed at Au Deux Lions for four nights in the Vieux Quebec suite and it was delightful. There were lots of great restaurants nearby, the suite was bigger than many entire apartments and Jean-Francois the host was always good-humoured and helpful. I thought that it was a great deal for the level of luxury. Run don't walk!
Notre séjour chez Jean-François Dulac du Gite aux deux Lions a été très agréable. Le propriétaire fait de son mieux pour vous rendre service. Les deux chambres ou nous avons dormi sont vraiment très belles, propres et spacieuses. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et varié.
Une adresse à conseiller
The owner is very personable and eager to make you feel welcome. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was good. We will definitely be visiting this B&B again.
Although this B&B is not located within the walls, it is close to everything. Frankly, it is nice not be in the thick of it all because it forces you to explore the City. My girlfriend and I loved to walk down Rue St. Jean, as the street has bakeries, an amazing chocolate shop, many restaurants and funky shops.
We stayed at Aux Deux Lions during the very busy weekend of the "Festival de la Nouvelle France", and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house is immaculate yet welcoming, newly renovated, and very clean. The rooms are private and quiet. There is a nice deck where you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch people walking along Rene-Levesque.
My wife and I recently stayed for two evenings at the Deux Lions B& B in Quebec City. We wanted to be close to the old city so that we could walk everywhere. This B&B is very close. It was very clean and the service was great. Very good atmosphere together with very good accomodations. We certainly reccomend this place.

When booking a room via an internet search, without any personal recommendation, there is always a risk that it won't be as good as its advertising makes it seem. What a treat to have our stay at Aux Deux Lions even better that expected.
This B&B is a perfect compliment to the beauty of Quebec!!
My wife and I recently stayed here. We were extremely pleased with our accommodation in this B&B, we stayed in the Vieux Quebec Suite; it was immaculate and spacious, and located in the top floor of the home. The host, Jean-Francois, was the perfect compliment to our visit to Quebec. He provided us with a delicious breakfast and interesting conversations each morning. The location was very good as well, located about 15 minutes from the old city and 2 blocks from Cartier where there many fine restaurants to choose from and a short 15 minute walk into Old Quebec. When we make a return trip to Quebec in the future, I will definitely return to this B&B.
