We are a large family that was travelling to Sherbrooke for a sports event at Bishops. Jardins de ville was one of the only options that we could find that offered a "condo style" accomodation. We had seen the english reviews and were a little concerned. But most were old and the french reviews were more recent and seemed better.
The condo was large enough for our family of 6 with 2 bedrooms and lots of kitchen and living room space. But when we walked in the entire place really smelled of stale smoke and the rooms had a weathered look. The ceiling tiles were stained and grubby looking and the rooms other than the bathroom was generally poorly lit.
I was a little disappointed that when we booked the condo they didn't bother telling us that the condos permit smoking in them - as evidenced by the ash tray on the kitchen table.
The pull out sofa bed in the living room was in really rough shape and not fit for an adult to sleep on. The bathroom had a huge jacuzzi bath tub that the kids loved but the floor to ceiling mirrors and stained ceiling were certainly distracting.
The outdoor pool was small but seemed clean and the kids enjoyed it when they were able to use it - it was closed down when it rained.
In fairness, while it looked shabby, the beds were comfortable, the place was clean, just had a bit of a worn out feel to it. We had very limited interaction with the staff but they seemed fine and were friendly enough.
If you don't mind the cosmetics being a little below average and the smell of smoke, this wasn't bad value for money. It was a little far to Bishops university campus and to Sherbrooke downtown.
