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 love it here!
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!
Always a pleasure to stay here.
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.
They go out of their way to take care of many various needs, no matter what time of the day or night (for instance they stayed up till 2am to make sure friends got checked in, they make all our dinner reservations and recommendations, history of the area and things to do and see).
The location is perfect, close to everything so you can walk but a few blocks away from the most traveled streets so it's very quiet.
The rooms and entire hotel are always very clean and quaint.
This is not a B&B yet they provide home baked muffins, fruit and coffee (and Patricia will heat up water for tea or hot chocolate any time you ask).
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.
I won't come back here.
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.
Although it is clean and everything functions, there is little to recommend it. The rooms are small, there is no "common room" or library/sitting room/ den, no books or magazines, just tourist promos. The shower was tiny, and we are smaller than average. Someone who is six foot or taller would probably have to get out of the shower to pick up the soap if they dropped it.
But our biggest complaint was the "breakfast" part of the B&B. There is a limited quantity of fruit, and not very good at that. No juice was available. The coffee is very mediocre, bordering on bad. Because we often wake early, we bring a small coffee pot with us. We use "Eight o' Clock" coffee, which is not exactly a fancy coffee, but pretty good for the price. The house coffee was quite bad in comparison, and served in flimsy styrofoam cups, just like a fast-food joint. (Do you drink your coffee from sytrofoam cups at home? I didn't think so.) But even in other B&B's where we have stayed for considerably less money, at least we have had some locally baked, very good fresh croissants. The offering at Pierre's was small, very inferior muffins, like you would buy at any grocery store. And, if your room is on the third floor, like ours, you had to go all the way to the first floor to fetch this very unispiring fare. And there are some B&B's in Quebec that offer a full breakfast, with juice, a choice of bacon, sausage, eggs, pancakes, hot and cold cereal, real cups, plates and silverware, for less money.
We love Quebec City, but there are too many more comfortable and "homey" B&B's there, with much better breakfasts, for less money, for us to return to Pierre's again.
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.

... However, so far we have been greeted with nothing but friendly smiles and fun broken English conversation.
Getting out of Saint-Roch, we also played tourist for a day by exploring the old town and its surroundings. Quebec City is the only fully fortified city in North America and definitely has a very European feel due to the old architecture and hilly cobblestone streets.

Our tour guide was a French-Canadian called Etienne (aged 25-30) and he spoke good English although with a few amusing twists. For example he would make a very authoritative statement or instruction, sounding very demanding then leave a gap of five seconds and then say please. He also told us "you WILL enjoy it" which made me chuckle ...
