Grand Dame of B'n'B's in Quebec City
My first visit to Quebec City was deeply enriched by our stay at Le Manoir d'Auteuil. It was almost 40 years ago, but I returned to view this wonderful 'grande dame' of B'n'B's in late 1995, and still found it to be charming and comfortably appointed. I have noted similar reviews from more recent visitors, and would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who truly appreciates the historic atmosphere of Old Quebec. May she live on forever.
I just spent five days at this hotel while attending a convention at the Hilton. I had a five minute walk from this hotel to the Hilton - out the door, through Parc Esplanade, out the walls and past Parliament every day. Ideal location! For sightseeing, we were at Chateau Frontenac, Rue du Tresor, Rue Saint Jean within minutes. The staff members are extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room was a small one on the 4th floor and we loved it. I would never wish to be in the Hilton instead of this hotel with its warm and inviting ambiance.
Excellent location and service
Excellent location within the town. There was no need for the car and we walked to all we wanted to see. The hotel was charming and clean; the service friendly and knowledgable. We enjoyed the popular sites of the city but it was the local areas and restaurants the people at the reception steered us towards that made the trip unique. Excellent value for the dollar. Especially good deals in the non- tourist season.
Not worthy of an excellent rating
This inn was much less than I expected based on the reviews here. The ceiling fan couldn't be used because it made so much noise. I had to always lift the toilet tank top to put the flapper in the tank down becaused it continued to run (yuk). overall the carpet and furnishing were very worn. It was a cute place with a good location but I wouldn't stay here again.
Great location, just inside the walls. Park your car for 3 days and see the city. Room was spacious and clean. Owner was friendly and funny. Excellent breakfast. Walk to Parliament, carriages, changing of the guard, food, etc. A bargain at the price.
My husband and I spent 3 nights and 4 wonderful days in Old Quebec City. Staying at the Le Manoir d'Auteuil, was a great highlight of our trip. We had a room which was a suite, bathroom huge and very clean.
Our view overlooked the Parliament Building it was wonderful. Mr. Hamel the owner was a terrific help in showing us places to eat or visit.
Very nice gentlemen... Had an awesome time.Breakfast could have been alittle bit better but all in all was a wonderful experience. Would stay there again.
The room we stayed in was clean, cozy, and very intimate. This little in was an replica of inns we visited while in France. The owner, Guy, was helpful (with restaurant and sightseeing selections), funny and very nice. It was in a super location, as it was close to the walls (to be able to shop and travel outside the walls if need be) and within a 10 minute walk of everything inside the walls. Excellent. Don't worry about 3 floors and no elevators, if you are, get off your computer and go for a walk. And the price, I would pay $20 MORE than the Hilton's fare to stay at a place like Le Manoir d'Auteuil.
A little old and tired, and not much cheaper than the Hilton your room will face
We stayed at the Manoir d'Auteuil in July 2003. Based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, we were expecting a bit more. There is no elevator, the rooms are old and the decor outdated, and the bathrooms are small.
Breakfast consists of a freshly baked croissant and some coffee or tea.
On the positive side, The owner is charming, and the staff is generally quite friendly. The Hotel is on a busy street and looks out on Parliament hill and the Hilton. Rooms were available at the Hilton for around $10 or $20 a night more than the Manoir d'Auteuil, and I spent a good part of my trip looking out across the street wishing I'd stayed there.
A Quebec Home Away From Home
We've just returned from our 10th trip to this fabulous city. On three occasions we've stayed at other hotels, just for the experience (e.g. the historic Chateau Frontenac), but it's the Manoir d'Auteuil and its very congenial hosts, Guy and Jeanine Hamel, that has drawn us back each year.
At current room rates, it's an excellent bargain, but above all, our loyalty to the Manoir d'Auteuil results from the comfortable, homey atmosphere that the Hamel's deliver so consistently. You'll find more elegant accomodations inside the walled city if you look, but you'll be hard pressed to be more satisfied after your stay, or more anxious to return.
Le Manoir d'Auteuil
A charming small inn located in the old walled city. Innkeeper is very hospitable and helpful. Large comfortable room in a great location. Breakfast was minimal, but this did not diminish our experience. Overall, a good value.
