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.

We made it to la Ville de Quebec! The trees are bright red and yellow and the hills are beautiful! I am so happy to be here! We hopped off the plane Sunday, and crowded around the baggage claim and found all our bags. We loaded into three vans and were driven to our home stays. I am staying with Emily and MacKenzie at the house of Serge and Manon Grandmont in Beauport, about ten minutes from downtown Quebec. We ate some delicious food and then crashed.
... Quebec as Canadians who don't speak any French though, the situation becomes a lot more sensitive.
Many Quebecers are very proud of the French heritage, and stories of French snobbery towards Anglo Canadians are all we've heard from people whom we've told where we were heading next. So far those stories are just that though, stories. During the couple of days that we have spent in the province, people have been ...
... the story better than I can. Oops !!! we ate the main course before we had a chance to take a photo. On each table there was an ipad with beautiful photography of each part of the journey and synchronised music through the railcars. Fantastic ambience. As dinner was being served, candles being lit appeared on the ipad just as we entered a long dark tunnel. How romantic? Words can't describe the whole experience. Daniel Gauthier, co-founder ...
... small complaint to make and one which occurs in almost every large city throughout the world and certainly didn't cloud our judgement one little bit.
At the moment we are en-route to Montreal, once again by VIA Rail which is only 3 hours away so we are getting to see some more of the beautiful snow covered landscapes along the way. For now though, it's au revoir and merci Quebec City. It's been a pleasure.
... been riding slightly up hill because on the way back it seemed less effort to pedal. I also had the wind on my back, which wasn't as advantageous as it sounds as my back happened to be soaked through. Setting off was soul destroying but as I made my way back I began to recognise landmarks I had passed and knew I was on my way.
By the time I returned to the bike shop the sun had come back out. The women I rented the bike from looked almost apologetic as I paid. 'Did you ...
