Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello

Montebello, Rural Quebec

The hotel

All the finer things in life come together at Fairmont Le Château Montebello, a showstopper of a hotel in postcard-worthy Montebello Village. It gives you a flavour of Québec’s ‘great outdoors’, with its lakeside setting between Ottawa and Montreal; its Canadian lodge styling; and the fresh air fun in its activity collection, featuring hiking, dogsledding and snowmobiling. It may be the world’s largest log cabin — complete with chalet-inspired deluxe rooms — but its rustic outdoorsy spirit is perfectly matched by VIP extras, that are more ‘luxury’ than ‘lodge’. It’s got all the essentials five star fans expect: an 18-hole golf course, a swanky al fresco pool terrace, a series of high-end dining and drinking venues, and a health club and spa looking out over the marina, river, and forest.

Although some things were a bit dated, it was very comfortable and many activities for the family to do on site. Love the fireplace in the lobby and firepits outdoors at night. Curling clinic was a fun a different type of fun tHt we had never tried before.

All our expectations were met, we felt safe and well-protected from contact with other guests. Thanks to management for providing the facilities for a brief family get-away while complying with all the required safety precautions.

Great service and excellent room, loved the rustic architecture. My primary gripe / point of contention was the lack of availability of a microwave during COVID. Due to COVID, we were not able to dine in at any restaurants and had to bring take-out back to our room. Naturally, the food would get a bit cold by the time we returned so we would've liked to heat it up before eating. I was disappointed that when asking the front desk, they insisted on a $25/day fee for a microwave to be included in the room! For perspective, to rent the microwave for my 4 night stay would've cost more than ordering a microwave from Amazon and having it delivered! I'm disappointed that the Fairmont would not be more accommodating, especially for someone on a longer term stay. Mini fridge was also tiny, too small to store much food/beverage. Outside of that, an excellent location Read less

I always enjoy staying at Chateau Montebello. I love the look of the large log cabin and the giant fireplace in the lobby. There are plenty of free activities to do on the site as well as lovely walking trails; one of them leads you right into town. The staff is always super friendly. Highly recommended!!!

Staff and Spa services were exceptional. Overall a pleasant stay. Carpet stains inside room were unsightly and upsetting, it was not at all what I expected from a Fairmont property. Hotel was slated for renovation but I was told because of Covid reno was halted.
