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.
Spectacular small 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!
Maison du Fort
I recently returned to Quebec City, a place I love and have been lucky enough to visit several times. During this visit I met up with my parents who had travelled from the UK (very picky) and we stayed at a B&B, Maison du Fort located in Vieux-Quebec.
The place was fabulous!! Great location on a quiet street, one block from the Plains of Abraham and two blocks from the Chateau Frontenac.
Beautiful renovations, decor and soft furnishings that were not that suffocating overly chintz style that you find in so many B&Bs. Very, very clean, non smoking and a charming, friendly, informative host Madame Roy!
I have spent alot of time working and staying in hotels and would wholeheartedly recommend Maison du Fort. If you are travelling with 1/2 children you may want to ask about the two room suite at the top of the house - we loved it.

... 12 of us on a city bus with vague intructions on when we should get off and together we braved a foreign city and bus system. A few people were close to crying, but I think they were tired and sore from our hike as well as hungry and wanting to get home. We laughed a lot about how the leaders dumped us off to scramble to find our ways to strange neighbourhoods on a strange bus, but in the end we all made it. Dinner was incredible and then the Grandmont's had a Bible study ...
... a passionate and excellent guide. For 2 hours he explained the Battle of Abraham, when the english won over the french and very interestingly explained how Quebec was populated. We all left the tour knowing a lot more about Quebec.
Weather is a lot colder than we have become accustomed, very windy and it definitely had a chill to it so out came the scarves and beanies, although with all the walking did get rather warm.

My ride was waiting for me at the Berri-Uqam station in Montreal and I hopped in with a cheery hello to all....unfortunately I was met with a subdued response and the replacing of earphones as the car settled back to its comfortable silence. Engaging conversationalists these were not but all things considered this was still much preferable to the bus and 3 hours later I was in Quebec....and it was snowing!

Quebec was a great city. There was a festival on celebrating the earlier settlers of Quebec. Streets were narrow but added to the charm of the city. Restaurants were everywhere. Has a very historical background hence the fort wall dividing Old Quebec from ...
