Hotel Tadoussac

Tadoussac, Rural Quebec

The hotel

Calling to mind another, much grander era, the Hotel Tadoussac with its whitewashed walls and red tiled roof is packed to the rafters with charm and elegance. Overlooking Tadoussac Bay and the St Lawrence River, it is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with a wealth of exciting activities to get involved in, including swimming, whale watching and hiking. There’s also a miniature golf course on-site and easy access to a 9-hole golf course, which will please enthusiasts of the game. The pool is open during summer only and most welcome for cooling dips in between sightseeing. If pampering tops your list of holiday priorities, the spa will gladly oblige with a whole range of treatments to tempt you including aromatherapy massage and chocolate wraps! Whilst you’re busy, the kids are too at their very own mini-club with treasure hunts on the agenda, a night at the movies, flying kites and fishing. There are three superb restaurants to choose from. Le Coverdale captures the hotel’s rich sense of history with its period woodwork and beautiful murals whilst at Le William you can enjoy a romantic atmosphere and stunning river views. Families meanwhile will love the casual atmosphere at Le Beaupre with its indoor/outdoor seating. For pre-dinner drinks and nightcaps Le Coquart is ideal.

We spent 2 days at this hotel and enjoyed its ambiance immensely. The room was ample and well maintained. You could open the windows to let the fresh air in. There were plenty of indoor and outdoor places where one could put up their legs and enjoy the view.

There were plenty of indoor and outdoor places where one could put up their legs and enjoy the view. There are quality restaurants within easy walking distance and a grocery store nearby to pick up food and wine for your Saguenay picnic. This hotel was a pleasant surprise and we intend on returning next year. Read less

We booked the Hotel Tadoussac based on the great location and the good look of the building. Unfortunately there are more important things such as a good nights' sleep. We were in Room 313 which has an interconnecting door (not that we needed one) the problem this gave us was that we could hear every conversation which took place in the room next door until about 11pm when we asked them through the door if they could tone down to which they answered that they could also hear us! At 6am we could hear the neighbor have first one shower and then the next by which time sleep was no longer an option. Our second night was no different. The lack of soundproofing is a real problem. In addition to this the hotel - which is very well patronised - is well and truly due for refurbishment. The furnishing throughout and the carpets are in need of some love and care and it would do no harm to put a door on the wardrobe which is simply an open hole with all the contents on show. They need to have a bedside table on each side of the Queen bed - there is nowhere for 1 person to place a glass of water, an alarm or anything at all and no bedside lamp. Rooms and bathroom are a good size and a bar fridge would not go astray. Housekeeping also has its problems which would be fixed by better supervision. Read less

A perfect location spoilt by poor management. There were all kinds of little things about the hotel that annoyed me. Bizarrely, the bathrooms in our rooms were brand new and fitted with high specification units, but so badly designed that it was difficult to move around. One of our rooms stank of old food for the duration of our multinight stay.… Read more
A perfect location spoilt by poor management. There were all kinds of little things about the hotel that annoyed me. Bizarrely, the bathrooms in our rooms were brand new and fitted with high specification units, but so badly designed that it was difficult to move around. One of our rooms stank of old food for the duration of our multinight stay. The facade outside was peeling. The staff struggled to communicate in English. One staff member privately complained to me about the management being poor. We had an issue with one of our excursions, and so the day manager agreed not to charge us, but we were nevertheless charged for it on check out, and when I pointed this out I was not believed and had to wait for ages for a different day manager to be found to authorise this. In short, the hotel is poor and overpriced. Read less

Prepaid over four hundred dollars for 2 nights. As suspected, the room was clean, coffee maker available, and a decent size, but I rate it a 3*. You are paying for the beautiful lobby, and the great view overlooking the St. Lawrence. I selected this hotel for its convenient location near the tour boat launch, the interpretation centre, etc. We… Read more

Sadly I feel that the owners of this hotel see the $$$$ potential and not much else when visitors arrive. We found a significant number of the staff to be surly, to the point of rudeness (for example, they need a new concierge, who actually can be bothered!) The decor of the building is dated. The bedroom is shades of 1970’s beige. The lobby… Read more
Sadly I feel that the owners of this hotel see the $$$$ potential and not much else when visitors arrive. We found a significant number of the staff to be surly, to the point of rudeness (for example, they need a new concierge, who actually can be bothered!) The decor of the building is dated. The bedroom is shades of 1970’s beige. The lobby has faded and craves TLC. The only thing to have kept up with the times at this establishment is the pricing of the extras. Breakfast is an eye-watering expensive surcharge. (We got lovely, cheaper breakfasts in local cafes) and the evening meal is high end. Not in keeping with the tired state of the building. This property could be so much more. But the owners are exploitatively capitalising on their prime location and not welcoming their guests with smiles or warmth or appreciation of our custom. We had a great stay in Tadoussac, but that’s nothing to do with where we stayed, and all to do with the area itself. Read less
