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!

Beautiful view of the St-Lawrence River but the restaurant is extremely overpriced. The food wasn't that great and it wasn't what we expected. It wasn't worth the money. Very disappointed.. As for the Manoir, there's no complimentary coffee in the mornings (just on Sundays). If you prefer having your coffee in your room in the morning while… Read more
Beautiful view of the St-Lawrence River but the restaurant is extremely overpriced. The food wasn't that great and it wasn't what we expected. It wasn't worth the money. Very disappointed.. As for the Manoir, there's no complimentary coffee in the mornings (just on Sundays). If you prefer having your coffee in your room in the morning while getting ready to go out, be ready to pay $10 for two coffees "to go" at Table et Terroir restaurant. The good thing that we have learned 1 day before we left :( is that, if you bring your empty cup back you will get a free refill ! Read less

I have always wanted to stay at this Hotel for ever and boy am I glad I did! It is simply breathtaking and from inside and out! We had a gorgeous room with a partial view on the Fleuve but it was huge! Just beautiful and great amenities - great bathroom with lots of charm.

I have always wanted to stay at this Hotel for ever and boy am I glad I did! It is simply breathtaking and from inside and out! We had a gorgeous room with a partial view on the Fleuve but it was huge! Just beautiful and great amenities - great bathroom with lots of charm. I have been to other Fairmonts in Canada and this is one of the nicest. The bar is great - beautiful views - we ate at Le Terroir - it was absolutely delicious and the breakfast was fabulous too. The inside of the hotel is grand and everything is well appointed. The grounds are absolutely impeccable - you can take a nice walk or just sit and admire the seaway - its majestic. Go dont hesitate - you will not be dissapointed. Read less

Great food, location and staff. When we got slow bar service, they picked up the tab. Make you play golf at the resort. Everyone from our group lost at the casino except 1 person. Skip the roulette table.

Everything was nice starting from check in (fast), room (very spacious and clean), bathroom (again spacious with full set of toiletries and 4 towels - many other hotels provided only 2 even though we booked a room for 4), location (full river view), swimming pool (indoor and outdoor).

Everything was nice starting from check in (fast), room (very spacious and clean), bathroom (again spacious with full set of toiletries and 4 towels - many other hotels provided only 2 even though we booked a room for 4), location (full river view), swimming pool (indoor and outdoor). Hotel has activities programs throughout the day to keep guests entertained. It is more like a resort. We didn’t try restaurant so cannot comment. Also didn’t visit casino as we were travelling with kids. Complimentary parking available though a bit farther than paid parking. Overall good choice for vacation. We redeemed one free night from hotel.com so the high price didn’t put us off. Read less

We were with a group and felt very fancy here. We had a wonderful historical tour "behind the scenes" with Remy. The food and drinks are expensive, but they throw in fantastic views of the St Lawrence River for free. There is a casino and an indoor pool. The 2018 G7 was held at this place, good enough for the 7, good enough for you - just… Read more
