Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu

La Malbaie, Rural Quebec

The hotel

Perched high on a cliff at Pointe-au-Pic with stunning views of the St Lawrence River below, this world-class resort is more like a French chateau than a Canadian luxury hotel. Welcoming guests for well over a century, the Fairmont boasts a rich tradition of elegance and hospitality with beautifully-appointed guest rooms a joy to experience. An impressive list of facilities includes an award-winning 27-hole golf course, which will challenge even the most experienced player. Alternatively, head to the spa, one of the finest in the country, with a whole range of tempting treatments to leave you feeling on top of the world. Whale-watching and river cruises are also favourite past-times as is tennis and cross-country skiing if you’re visiting in winter. The two outdoor swimming pools are great for splashing around in plus there’s an indoor swimming pool when the weather turns cooler and a fitness centre with sauna and steam room. Whilst the adults are at play, the kids can have fun too at their very own mini-club with treasure hunts being just one of the treats in store. For gourmet dining, Le Charlevoix will please, with its innovative cuisine showcasing perfectly local produce. Le Saint-Laurent offers a French brasserie type of menu whilst Le Bellrive is renowned for its lavish buffets, overflowing with flavour. In summer, Le Vieux Club House serves the greatest steamed mussels in the region, accompanied by French Fries and a cold beer!

Hotel grounds are beautiful and quiet. Hotel restaurant not very accommodating. I would not recommend this for families. There’s a trail of 4 km which we enjoyed. The staff was friendly and the bathroom door was fixed by the time we returned from our supper.

Great 2 days getaway in Charlevoix. We enjoyed the settings at the Manoir. Outstanding view of the St-Lawrence river, nice trails for walking/jogging on site. We enjoyed the pool, The rooms are very expensive. The food at the various hotel restaurants is also very expensive and you would expect higher quality at that price point.

This hotel is far from being a 5 star hotel. Although having beautiful grounds and a breathtaking view, it deeply lacks the service and luxury that you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Having paid over 500$ a night, i was greatly disappointed by my stay at the fairmont: 1. The valet at arrival will not help you with your baggage. Instead, they’ll will advise that the valet is 30$ a night and if you don’t want yo pay, you can park the car yourself (great start for a 5 star hotel stay) 2. The rooms are very small, which is expected in an older establishment, but despite booking a room with a queen size bed, i got a double bed. 3. Your room will only be cleaned every 3 days. It’s apparently their policy. So don’t expect to come back to a cleaned room and a freshly made bed. UNACCEPTABLE. 4. The pool has a bar with one bartender. Don’t expect anyone to take your order, instead expect waiting in line to get a drink. 5. You’ wait over 1 hour to get additional nesperesso capsules and fresh towels. If this wasn’t considered a 5 star hotel and if I hadn’t paid over 500$ a night, I wouldn’t be this disappointed. But this is plainly inacceptable. Next time, I’ll be staying at B&B in the area for half the price and way better service. I do not recommend this hotel. Totally not worth. Read less
