My boss, Mark, would be proud! I’m finally getting a grasp of the geography of this country! I love Canada! We arrived in Quebec about 12:30pm and made stop at the Visitor’s center since I was totally lost! It would be helpful if the …
Day 17 Ok so this is today, well we are currently travelling to Quebec City on the train which was been quite nice however we have had a couple of problems on the way. On our first train from Ottawa to Montreal the back carriage (one behind us) had a fire in it so we had to stop a couple of times as the engineers had to look at why it was happening …
A humpback named Snow White Awoke this morning to find the sunny day had been delivered at last. Unfortunately as we were going whale watching this afternoon I was dressed in long sleeve shirt and jeans! No such thing as wrong weather they tell me just the wrong clothes. Grateful for it though as we boarded the boat in St Catherines Bay some 130 miles NE of Quebec as there was a fair wind and the temperature was a lot cooler ...
... 5 cruise ships in dock so the whole place was heaving and the tour busses were all booked up. so we wandered by the castle and had a ride on the Funiculaire which is steep cliff railway which deposited us in amongst more shops. We stopped for lunch and headed back to the hotel. Off into the wilds again tomorrow with whale watching on the agenda, hope they prove to be less elusive than the moose. Still no ...
... stadium in the park nearby. We couldn't see the stage or performance but sitting on the city walls with his tunes playing in the background was simply awesome. Unfortunately we wouldn't be there on Saturday when Celine Dion was going to be performing at the same place. Oh well, one out of two ain't bad.
Over the three days we had in Quebec we simply strolled around in the perfect Summer weather and took in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Chateau de Pierre Quebec City
A gem in the heart of old town Quebec!
Just returned from a wonderful stay in Quebec City at Le Chateau de Pierre. The hotel is quaint and our room was spacious, quiet and spotless. Richard and Patricia's hospitality was second to none. The hotel is within walking distance to everything in the old town with great restaurants, museums, and art galleries nearby and a view of the Chateau and St. Lawrence River from the front of the hotel. Highly recommended!
I have been going to Winter Carnival for the past 4 years with a large group of friends and every year we always stay at the Le Chateau de Pierre. You will meet Richard and Patricia who run the hotel and make you feel as if you are part of a family. They are always there to help you whether it is with directions or making a reservation for you, or whether you are waking them up at 2:00 a.m. because of a lost key or late arriving friends (oops!). Either way, they always do it with a smile and make you feel like you are of no inconveinence at all. The hotel has such a warm atmosphere and the rooms are very comfortable. You couldn't ask for a more central and beautiful location. I plan on returning to the Old City many times in the future and I would never think of staying anywhere else.
We'll Be Back
We just returned from a last minute weekend trip to Quebec. We arrived late on Friday/early Saturday morning and were warmly greeted by Patricia. The hotel was charming and our room was very comfortable with a king sized bed and private bathroom. The location was fabulous and everyting was just a short walk away. We're already planning our return trip to Chateau de Pierre for next year!
We've been going to Quebec for Carnival since 2000. We lucked out and found this place and won't look elsewhere. Richard and Patricia treat us like one of the family every time we stay.
Great return stay
We just returned from another great stay at this fun little hotel. We had a king room on the second floor with a view of the St Lawrence and the Chateau Frontenac (where I have stayed previously and prefer the Pierre). Parking was in an indoor garage around the corner with unlimted re-entry for $10 CDN a day. Our room was comfortable, well appointed with beautiful high ceilings and windows. Aside from the great location the owner was very helpful with our planning and spent quite a bit of time with us helping with dining suggestions and reservations. If you want all the amenities of a large hotel go elsewhere but if you want a great location, great room, an old Quebec atmosphere, nice people and great value try the Pierre. We'll be back.
We have been coming to Winter Carnaval for ten years, and just spent two nights at the Chateau de Pierre. In those ten years, we have been at seven bed and breakfasts in Old Quebec. We have enjoyed our stay less at only one other.
We'll Be Back!
Just returned from having spent three nights in Quebec City at Le Chateau de Pierre. What a wonderful place! It's clean, comfortable, quiet, and economical. Our room was very charming: a king-sized bed with private bath. The owner is very sweet and accommodating. She recommended dinner options and a place to do laundry and ordered us a taxi.
We had a wonderful view of the Chateau Frontenac from our window. Looking out at that beautiful fairy-tale-like structure through the falling snow from our warm, cozy room was magical. It's easy to walk to everything in Vieux Quebec.
We took a half-day minivan tour from Quebec City Tours, and our guide complimented our great taste in hotels.
I can't recommend it enough. We'll be back!
Great location. Very quiet and clean. We had a king bed and our "nightlight" was a view of the Frontenac. It was gorgeous! Room was not large but was very clean. Breakfast is a muffin and coffee. This quiet street was convenient to downtown old Quebec and Dufferin Terrace. Got a $42 parking ticket upon checkout when we parked in back, where 3 other cars from Quebec were parked, but of course they must have been locals as they did not get ticketed. Welcome tourists. Hopefully this ticket will pay for a "no parking" sign.
Our Favorite Hotel Inside the Walls
My family has made 8 or 9 trips to Quebec City in the last 15 years and the Chateau de Pierre is our favorite place to stay. The two buildings are both beautiful, it's centrally located in the Old City but most importantly the staff and owner are charming, helpful and definately willing to go the extra distance to insure your stay is a pleasant one.
Within the Walls
Having booked our last minute accommodation online, it was wonderful to arrive and find a clean, cheery and amazingly located one bedroom suite. It was close to everything that we wanted to see (Vieux Quebec) and the area was so quaint and quiet. Two things that are very important for a weekend 'Home Away from Home'. The one bedroom apartment gave us (2) ample space and the kitchen facilities made our trip very convenient and that much more affordable. Richard and Patricia were both hospitable, friendly and very helpful during our stay. Only minor comment was that the room did not come with phone service. Our own cell phones were used for the weekend. A wonderful city, great people and super accommodations. Highly Recommended.
