... where we booked our walking tour of upper and lower Quebec which starts at 11.00am just 45 minutes away. Very busy centre and so was the toilets from the tourist buses. Changed a $20 note for $5 notes for tip for tour guide. Went over to Place d'Armes and had a coffee while we waited for the tour to start only to realise the batteries in the camera were flat and we had to race around to find a shop to buy two batteries but we mad it back in time. ...
... me in their coats and hats would have to sweat it out. No such luck, the sun did shine briefly, the tempratures rocketed to a balmy 15 degrees. Never mind because the morning was spent in the shopping malls, their are 3 large malls here and we wandered around doing a bit of shopping before heading into the old town for some sightseeing. The plan was to catch a sightseeing bus and do a tour but there ...
... as delightful was the dining room, with a huge carved table to seat 8 set with heritage cutlery and crockery, and surrounded by vintage lounge furniture, polished floorboards and a fireplace, to complete the picture. An American family from Rochester in upstate New York soon trooped downstairs, they were staying there with four children, and had been here a number of times, their honeymoon being the first. There are eight rooms altogether at this B&B, so that must ...
... down to the St Lawrence river... most enjoyable and packed with bikers for a monday!
- Left our bikes at the ferry and went across to old town, took the funicular up as we did not want to climb all the stairs.
- It is a wonderful place to stroll on a nice day with beautiful buildings ensconced with lots of plants and greenery. An eclectic mix of shops and restaurants and pubs keeps you busy on the winding streets.

... slippery, one needs to take extreme care. After 10-15 steps out the front door of the hotel the final morning of our stay in Quebec, Patrick asked me to take his hand as it was extremely slippery, which I did, and as I took the next step .. bang... I went down on my left side taking my dear man along with me on my right side! The result... I am absolutely perfect, no broken bones, but poor Patrick... one or two ribs with green stick fractures. We don't ...

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!
