Hotel Manoir Victoria
Travel Blogs from Quebec City
Travelled all day to get to Quebec. Mostly on motorways and the country was quite flat. The trees are changing colour with lots of yellow and orange. These are the kind of trees that I expected on the west coast. Lots of maples and silver birches. Mostly rural.
Got to the hotel about 3pm and straight away went on a conducted walk of the …
... Thomas, and I took pictures with a bunch of girls from the school. Then we went to L'Eglise de la Nativite, another one of Quebec's beautiful basilica. Here we had a master class with Madame Marie Louise Bourbeau. She taught us about movement and singing. It was helpful to the choir. In the afternoon, we had a concert for the parishioners and music students of E'Cole St. Eduard. There were posters with our picture made ...

... he had ever heard)! It's funny how everyone can seem to relate to England in some way! She was very nice, she's in my atelier too. When we go back to the residence she had a package - it was some biscuits which her dad had sent her - she gave us one. They were very tasty. Unfortunately she didn't want to go to vieux Québec, so we were stuck in a three again. This was a bit of a problem, because we definitely didn't want to be stuck inside again in the evening, and ...
... to make use of one of its two Internet cafes. We found one called the Café Tribune, which had only one computer. Needless to say, only one computer meant that there were long lines of people waiting their turn. So, we went to the other side of the Place to the A.L. Van Houtte café. This establishment not only had five computers, but also had several phone jacks which anyone could plug in and get connected (yes, this was in the dark days before wi-fi). Consequently, ...

I wasn't sure what I was getting with the Expedia Unpublished Rate Hotel at $100 a night. Now that I'm here writing this in the room, I have to say I have no regrets. A good 4-star hotel. Check-in was a breeze. There's a decent gym and small pool downstairs - looks good enough for me to consider using it tomorrow. Location is perfect, slight uphill walk from the bus/train station and in the old city where most sights are. Room and bathroom is clean. Beds are on the softer side with feathered pillows.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Manoir Victoria Quebec City
Would Definitely Recommend
May 2004: Very, very nice hotel in great location ... and it will be even better when the street outside is finished! The side entrance opens onto St. Jean which is full of restaurants and shops. However, we heard little or no construction noise. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Our room (deluxe) was quite large and everything was very clean. I asked for x-tra pillows and they showed up immediately. We tried out the St. James bistro on the premises and it was just fine. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
Hotel Manoir Victoria Quebec
My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel Manoir Victoria for 3 straight years. We have had nothing but a wonderful experience. That is why we keep going back. From the gentlemen who meet us when we drive our vehicle to the parking garage to the staff when we arrive at the reception desk to our room, we have never been disappointed. We have never asked for more, even though I am sure the staff would be more than eager to help. Our meals have been wonderful. From the Bistro to the formal dining room. They have a wonderful gym and a good size swimming pool. All in all, we keep going back. There must be something this hotel is doing right.
My husband and I just returned from visiting Quebec City for the Ice Carnival. After much researching, we decided to stay at the Hotel Manoir Victoria because of it's location and rate of the rooms. The hotel is rated 4 Stars and I'm not sure who does these ratings, but I would not call it a "4 Star" hotel. It is a very nice hotel and our room was oversized with a sitting area. Fortunately we had two windows which we could open to let in cool air because the thermostat only went to 19 degrees C (approximately 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit). We found this to be too warm for us. The room was very clean and the housekeeping service was excellent. The bellmen were most helpful and friendly. The front desk staff overall were friendly and helpful too -- some more so than others. We ate dinner in the restaurant the last night there and the food was excellent quality and the service was great. We were close enough to many shops, the Ice Carnival, and other restaurants. I would recommend this property for the value we paid.
Excellent! Absolutely excellent!
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Manoir Victoria this past weekend (Nov.22-24) and we will certainly plan to stay there again ... and soon.
Location, location, location! We were able to easily walk to all key attractions in Old Quebec, including Quartier Petit Champlain, the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac, Terrasse Dufferin, and Citadelle. We also were able to catch several fascinating exhibitions at the Musee de la Civilisation. The train station was a fast 5-minute walk from the hotel because it was all down hill! Take a taxi to get up to the hotel if you arrive at the train station! Among the many interesting shops that are opposite the hotel's bistro is a super supermarket and an excellent music store.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean, expansive, and overlooked the lovely shops and activity of rue Saint-Jean. We enjoyed a Get-away package that included two nights accommodation, a dinner for two and breakfasts each morning. All meals were excellent and the service top-notch and welcoming. The hotel's swimming pool was clean and refreshing.
We were also fortunate to have wonderful musical entertainment both nights we were in Quebec City: the first night we had a fabulous dinner at the hotel's own "La Table du Manoir" and we lucked upon a party by another group that resulted in several occasions of spontaneous lovely French singing and serenading, including an accordion player; our second night found us enjoying not only superb Italian cuisine, but marvelous acoustic guitar playing and singing at the really funky Portofino Bistro Italiano (down the street a short block from the hotel) and then finished our evening across the street from the hotel and up a short alley to enjoy the music of an authentic French Canadien song writer at the coffeehouse, Les Yeux Bleus, singing in the light of candles that were placed in the nooks and crannies of the raw stone walls.
If anyone wanted to experience the best of Old Quebec for a few days, I would highly recommend Hotel Manoir Victoria for that stay. Not only the staff at this wonderful hotel, but all of the Quebeckers whom we met and had contact with for 3 lovely days, warmly welcomed us to their beautiful city.
One of Quebec's VERY best hotels!
I had the pleasure of staying at the Manoir Victoria in February of this year during Quebec's fabulous Winter Carnival! From the moment I telephonically booked with the hotel throughout my stay, I was treated with the utmost courtesy by the hotel staff; my room was a gorgeous room, most beautifully furnished in French period furniture; I had a large jacuzzi in the bathroom as well as a fireplace in my bedroom. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The location of the hotel was excellent. In less than l0 minutes, I could walk to the funiculaire to travel down to the lower city. I had breakfast at the hotel on two occasions and found the food delicious and excellently prepared. I could not say enough wonderful things about this hotel and will most definitely return when I return to Quebec City this year!
We stayed at the Manoir Victoria on August 29 and 30, 2003. Our room was perfect and the service was excellent. We were going to the International Air Show on the Saturday and were able to get excellent public transit directions and information from the young lady at the front desk who called around and got us perfect directions. In a great location, near everything. We were able to walk to the train station and to all attractions. We certainly look forward to our next stay at the Manoir Victoria.
We stayed at Hotel Manoir Victoria in May. Our room was a very large corner room with nice views in two directions. It was clean and attractive. I can't say enough about the location and the staff was helpful. We definitely would recommend it to anyone and certainly would stay there again.
A wonderful Hotel in a wonderful city
This Hotel was a find. We had a wonderful corner room(probably the largest hotel room that I have stayed in. The location, right in the heart of the walled city, was wonderful. The swimming pool and workout area are top notch. I would highly recommend this hotel.
A wonderful hotel!
My husband and I spent a few days at Hotel Manoir Victoria in "Old Quebec" in September, 2002.
This is a wonderful spot. You can dine "in" or walk to numerous other restaurants nearby. The staff is friendly, efficient and fully bilingual and ever so obliging. There is a bistro restaurant in the hotel where you can get a good breakfast, lunch or evening meal. If you want more of the candlelight and fancy stuff, you can opt to dine at the fancier hotel dining room (we did one night, just to try it...it was good, but the Bistro is very satisfying). In both cases, dress is casual.
Our room was marvellous..... very modern and every provision you could ask for, was included.
The hotel is so centrally located that you never need your car... just walk outside and turn the corner and you are in the heart of it all.
What an amazing hotel....and believe me....we are very fussy. We would return to Hotel Manoir Victoria without hesitation.

I've been to Canada on numerous occassions but it was my first trip with my family. I've always received first class services and accomodation and the people are so friendly and helpful, I was sure it would be a great holiday.
Everything went great in Toronto and Montreal, then we booked into the Hotel Manoir Victoria.
The entrance and hall is dingy, the swimming pool(if you can call it that) is only about 1m deep.There's not any coffee facilities in the rooms.Our room only had one small window which looked out onto air vents.With the hotel parking, you have to hand over your keys. The staff are completely unhelpful and snobbish.
All and all, it is the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at, and I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.
