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!

I will remember for a long time that morning when I was looking at the river and the sunrise. This is the stunning view that you have from this lovely hotel. The gentleman at the reception was so professional and friendly at checking in and out. The food served at the restaurant was very good too. My room was nice and spacious although a bit dark. Unfortunately the bed squeaked every time I moved so I did not have a great night’s sleep. And the parking is not well indicated and quite a trek. Having said that these are very minor issues and I would definitely go back. Read less

This is jewel of property tucked in one of the most stunning landscapes . I am a travel professional and travel quite a bit and very hard to impress. This a top of the line experience with so much to do. Was privileged to stay at the same location as the 2018 G7 summit.

This grand old dame of the upper St. Lawrence has retained its historical charm. The breakfast buffet was wonderful but we were a little disappointed that we could have have a traditional full course sit down dinner in the grand dining room.

The road alone from Quebec City, Canada that meanders along rolling hills and views of the sea is beautiful. And when you arrive to this lovely destination in a sparsely populated town called La Maibaie, you know the journey was just the beginning. The hotel itself has a lot of character and the grounds surrounding, with trails to the sea and up into the hills are lovely. My best friend and I where surprised to see how quiet it was and how lucky we were to have it mostly to ourselves. A must visit! Read less
