... creamy, filing and warming, just what a snowy day needs. Desert of maple pie sounded a tad overly touristic but tasted lush.
On a couple of nights we found our way to the Bureau de Poste pub, which boasted all food (entrée- main or desert) for $4.95. For a main meal for two at least three of the above were needed but it was a relief to find good cheap bar food and a burger between two easily filled us partway through our mini pub crawl. Here, like many pubs and fast food ...
... de la civilisation was free on Tuesdays and today was indeed a Tuesday - perfect! Over the next few hours I dipped into Quebecois history, took a tour around 1930s Paris, played video games which ranged from space invaders and frogger to the latest Playstation and Wii and delved into the voodoo art of Haiti..in short, a museum not to be missed!
The following morning, having met fellow travellers over breakfast, we hopped on a bus to check ...
... of Quebec are petty. If a remote town in France has signs in both English and French, due to their desire to be helpful to tourists, not due to any legal requirement, then I do not see why the Quebec parliament building cannot extend the same courtesy. Canada is after all a bilingual country, c’est pas? Rant over>>
I really enjoy the feeling Quebec City gives you, it feels like I am in France. Even to the point that I forgot for a ...
By 7:00 am I was relaxing and enjoying the train journey to New York once again. The business class seats were so comfortable (if only the plane seats I can afford to pay for were like this!) that I even dozed off a bit, in a vain attempt to try and catch up on the many hours of sleep I'd lost recently. The journey seemed much faster, when you have wireless internet connection this is a great opportunity to catch up on things like blogs. It's amazing how long it can take to upload ...
... 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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maison du Fort Quebec City
My 11 year old granddaughter and I stayed here for 3 nights in August. It was an immaculate room and tastefully decorated. Marielle was helpful and the continental breakfast of homemade breads and muffins was good. The hotel is conveniently situated. It was quiet with the exception of Saturday night when the street noise could be heard. I would imagine that to be the case at other hotels as well. I would highly recommend this place.

Warm muffins and friendly cats
A very charming bed and breakfast in the heart of the old city of Quebec. The owner, Marielle was totally warm and friendly and very helpful about getting around town. She made delicious healthy muffins for breakfast that we all had in a breakfast room where she and the guests all chatted. She kindly gave me some muffins right out of the oven for my bus ride to Montreal.
My bed was very comfortable, my room quiet and I loved the tasteful way she decorated it. I definitely would come back.
I took my 11 yr old grandson on atrain trip to see, Quebec City. I had made reservations at Maison du fort. The host Marielle was very welcoming as was her 2 cats (areal cat lovers place) with lots of cat pictures and ornaments in the room. Being a senior on alimited budget I had to take the budget room on the 3rd floor, it was very small but nicely decorated and clean, but it was very hot maybe fan on the wall higher would help. The plus were worth it the coffee and pastry good and the location excellent.

Can't rave enough about this place!
I had such a fantastic time at this B&B! Marielle (the onwer) and her nephew (the manager) were both fantastically friendly (but not nosy), the place was immaculate and decorated in very good taste, and the location was perfect for walking everywhere. I'll definitely stay here again!
I Love This Place!
We were impressed with this small hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious and tastefully decorated and the hotel was only a short stroll to the boardwalk, shops and restaurants. The owner was exceptionally friendly and happy to provide suggestions and information on what to do and see. I loved the two resident cats who were very friendly and happy to have a cuddle. There was a light breakfast provided with lovely homemade goodies. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would certainly stay there in the future.
Quebec Was Cold But The Maison Was Warm
We just returned from Maison du Fort and were highly pleased in all respects. The location couldn't be better, the rates were reasonable, the owner is friendly and helpful and everything was as promised. The rooms are clean and well decorated. This is basically a small hotel.
You are given a key and can come and go as you please. Coffee and muffins are free in the morning. Enjoy!
Friendly, clean bed & breakfast
We have stayed at Hotel Maison du Fort twice now and will stay there on future trips to Quebec. The owner is very friendly and knowledgable about local restaurants, sights and events. Everything within the walls of the old city are within walking distance of this hotel.
We just returned from a stay and Maison du Fort and we must rave about it. The place was absolutely flawless. It is a small hotel (9 rooms) and keeping in mind that the amenities are not the same as a chain hotel (although our room had a TV and hairdryer, both of which I did not expect), the charming and intimate experience cannot, in my opinion, be replicated in a larger hotel. The landlady, Mdme Roy, is charming and gracious. Fresh coffee and homemade treats start every day and can be eaten in your room. One of the cats in residence joined us for breakfast one day! On a side note there are two very friendly cats and people who hate cats or are allergic would probably not be comfortable here. The room (#6) was spotlessly clean, spacious, and beautifully furnished. 4 windows overlooking Rue Ste Genevieve didn't hurt either. Great location steps to the Chateau Frontenac. Highly, highly recommend, actually can't wait to stay there again ourselves!
Maison du Fort
We stayed at Maison du Fort because of a positive experience another Tripadvisor user had staying at this location. And what a great location it was. Right in the heart of Old Quebec. Immaculate accomodations, unbelievably quiet and graciously looked after by Madame Roy. Her two friendly cats were always there to have a chat with you as well. We stayed in the spacious blue room, with a very comfortable bed and great pillows. Would stay there again!
