... interesting exhibition of Haitian artwork which we both enjoyed, along with an exhibition on the history of French Canada. We both preferred the Quebec City art gallery to the Montréal one. It had more in the way of paintings in it, and for the most part ones with recognisable subjects too, which we appreciate in our artwork.
We were quite sad to leave Quebec City in the end, but we set off anyway in search of new adventures in ...
... The plan is for her to meet up with the T-dawgs and me in Edmonton. Then it'll be time for a Giles family cross country adventure. For those of you who know us well, you're probably already imagining the bickering that will occur. I think that the main rule for that trip will be that we can't leave the other behind, no matter how mad we get!
With three weeks left here, I have a few papers to finish up, one to start and finish, some more cans ...
... 16 CAD (around 10GBP) for the two of us.
After taking our final night time shots we rushed down to the riverside to catch the 8pm ferry back to Quebec. At this time of night the ferries only go every 60 minutes so we didn’t want to miss this one and be waiting until 9pm! Once back on ‘our’ side of the river we took some more night time photos after climbing more steps and hills before returning to our hostel after a good work ...
We made the decision to get up and go - 10 a.m. at The Citadel - The Changing of The Guard. Did I mention that our hotel is in Lower Old Town and The Citadel is at the far corner of Upper Old Town. I have retired the flip flops for these walks - but still - I did not think about working out for this trip - I kept reading about the good food. Not that you would work it off!
We got to The Citadel just in time - and it was well worth it. Lots of tradition - good marching ...
... teachers and their families. They are based in Ontario and because there is no support group in New Brunswick we thought that we would make the most of the offer and meet up with the group in Quebec City.
The drive there was fairly uneventful, and long. We passed the hours trying to spot Canadian wildlife, in articular that elusive moose. Once we crossed the border in Quebec ( the province) we drove along the river which was just spectacular.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Priori Quebec City
Tout à fait charmant...........
Le personnel était chaleureux, adorable et très arrangeant. Non seulement le quartier où se trouve l'hôtel est calme mais il est aussi très central, permettant l'accès à toutes les attractions et à la vieille ville. Les chambres sont très bien équipées et confortables. L'attention apportée à la déco est extraordinaire. Dans leur restaurant, la cuisine et le service sont exceptionnels. Grâce au Priori, mon séjour à Québec a été mémorable et c'est là que je retournerai la prochaine fois. Ils savent comment s'occuper de leurs clients et les entourer d'une attention chaleureuse et charmante.
Staff was warm, charming and totally accomodating. The location is not only quiet but well situated for easy access to major sites and the old city. Rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. Attention to decorative style is superbly world-class. The restaurant's food and its staff is outstanding. Le Priori made my visit to Quebec pleasantly memorible and I will return to stay with them on my next visit. They know how to treat guests with attention, warmth and charm.
J'ai adoré cet hôtel
Je viens de faire un séjour ici. C'était superbe, j'aimais tout dans cet hôtel. C'est l'hôtel idéal pour visiter la ville de Québec.
I loved this hotel
I recently stayed at this hotel. It was beautiful, I loved everything about it. This is the place to stay for perfect trip to Quebec city.
My finace and I stayed at Le Priori in Oct 2003. Aesthetically this hotel is great, very modern, romantic and funky, however we did have some problems with our stay, and we did have some aspects that we really liked. The issues were as follows: Our room had a really sour, unpleasant smell to it. It was explained away by the staff as a recent coat of varnish to the entertainment center, however it smelled nothing like that. Coming from a family of carpenters, i tend to recognize refinishing smells, but this smelled more like someone had been sick on the carpet. At times we were overwhelmed by it. We couldn't get the room warm, even with the heater turned up all the way, so it was hard to relax as we were always chilly. The bathroom door was a sliding door that was broken, so if either of us wanted to use the bathroom we could see what the other was doing through the 4 inch gap. Leaving the room each time someone needed privacy to use the washroom was a huge inconvenience. Also, although the beds are quite funky with colorful duvets and cool head and foot boards, they have no box-spring and are very uncomfortable. I rarely slept because I could not get comfortable, or would be woken up by the sound of the bed from one of us rolling over. We had booked a queen sized bed but were only given a double.
We stayed at Le Priori during the summer of 2003. We were having our wedding in Quebec City. The staff (especially Martyn) were more than courteous. The rooms are non-traditional, and decorated with a modern touch making them very pleasant and unique. Everything from the breakfast to the cleanliness to the location made this a perfect stay.
A charming hotel and a great value
We stayed at Le Priori in October 2002 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The decor is interesting if a bit frayed at the edges. (The doorknobs in our suite, for example, would come off; the lock to our door was broken.) But the wonderful attitude of the friendly, charming staff more than made up for it. A terrific location -- very quiet but just a stone's throw from the waterfront and Place Royale. We had a big, roomy suite with a fireplace downstairs and a huge bathroom outfitted with a whirlpool upstairs. This place was a real bargain. And don't get me started on the hearty breakfast. Friends who have since stayed at Le Priori give it rave reviews as well.
Returning to Quebec City for a second visit chose the Hotel Le Priori for a 4-night stay. The reservation was made by e-mail and phone with confirmation by phone. It was stressed the importance of a no smoking room and was told that it was marked as such in the reservation book. Upon arrival and taken to the room the stale smoke in the room was nauseating. Since the time of the visit was during the music festival there were no alternatives. While I thoroughly enjoyed the sights and sounds that only Quebec City can offer, the disappointment at the hotel and the staff left a bitter taste. I purchased room freshner and the staff attitude was that there was no problem. Anyone who has an allergy to smoke would probably benefit to seek accomodations elsewhere.
We stayed here, in a suite, on our honeymoon last summer. Le Priori is the best place we have ever stayed. Our suite was beautiful--high quality, interesting modern furniture and art, stone walls and floors, a full kitchen, fireplace (not needed in july), an amazing bathroom with a large jacuzzi bath and lots of marble, and a delightful bedroom that was separated from the rest of the area by a glass wall. Staying here is like being in the pages of metroplitan home. A nice breakfast which is taken outside in a romantic courtyard is also included. And the rate was amazing for what you get. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates high quality, modern decor and an interesting, romantic and modern atmosphere. The hotel is located in the lower town, in a nice, quite area, and the upper town is easily accessible by the furnicular.
Different hotel in Quebec City
As an alternative to the regular hotel chains, I enjoyed two nights at Le Priori in May 2001. Decor is definitely funky and it is unusual to have the washbasin within the room (shower and toilet in ensuite alcove). It is an amusing renovation of an old stone building and, in warm weather, the outdoor terrasse would be very inviting. Comfortable duvet, good reading lights, reasonable continental breakfast. I plan to take my Mother there, even though she will be surprised by the purple walls.
