“tres bien!”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

In looking for a quaint place to get away for a few days, my friend found this delightful hotel right smack in the middle of Vieux Quebec and walking distance to everything which was good considering we flew in and had no car. Marielle Roy, our hostess was superbly attentive and knowledgeable about the areas attractions. The rooms are tastefully decorated with an eye to the period of the hotel and humor in the feline theme. To say the entire place was immaculate is an understatement and her two "chats" are discreet and inobstrusive. .. It felt like home away from home. We enjoyed our visit immensely and Marielle's sunny personality, un délice de cisaillement. Definitely would return.

Room Tip: Some rooms have shared bathroom. The rooms are on all four floors and there is no elevator. There...

This place made a first time visitor feel right at home. I live in northern VT and visit Montreal often and have explored the Eastern Townships region. I finally made it to Quebec City and learned of Maison du Fort through Trip Advisory. I won't look for another place for my return visit - this is the place for me. Fabulous location to walk to anyplace in the Old City and Lower Town, but tucked on a quiet and beautiful street. Marielle has created a warm and inviting atmosphere and an immaculate property. From coffee, tea, juice, and muffins and breads in the sitting room, to her two adorable cats, to her helpful hints on events, this was a joy. Room was nicely decorated, air conditioner quiet and well-maintained (which was welcome on a couple of unseasonably hot days), private bath spotless. Only negative was having to leave. But next time I'm headed to that beautiful city, I already KNOW where I'll stay.

Room Tip: They are each unique, (I believe there are 9 rooms), and some larger than others, I made my reservat...

At this price point, this was certainly the best hotel in which I've stayed. Maison du Fort is beautiful with an excellent location in Old Quebec. The ability to walk out the door and explore both Old Quebec and Lower Town was a true highlight. In fact, our car didn't leave the parking lot the entire visit. The only need for it was to see Montmorency Falls, so we just did that on our last day leaving town. The hotel's decor was great and the room was spotless. Maison du Fort is run by a lovely, cheerful woman named Marielle. She is very knowledgeable about the city and makes you feel right at home. She told us up front that the included breakfast was nothing special, however, it was perfect for us. Just top notch all around.

My husband and I (seniors) stayed at this remarkable little gem of a hotel and were overjoyed at the owner Marielle's fabulous ability to make her guests feel like loved friends and how beautifully she has decorated and maintained her immaculate hotel. Every detail is absolute perfection with quaint charming modern/ antique decor. Marielle even lovingly hand stitched and framed numbers for each unit door. The hotel is on a quiet, quaint street acouple of blocks from the harbour, shopping,restaurants and information centre. The bus/train central station is a 15 minute walk with great window shopping all the way.Free breakfast is delicious moist loaves,squares and muffins with a good quality juice and coffee. Marielle and the Maison du Fort are Canadian treasures.

We stayed at the Maison du Fort--it is one of the most romantic hotels, fully equipped, centrally located and the proprietress was utterly charming. The room was spacious, bright and fully equipped with air conditioning and a modern bathroom. We would come here again
