The home was absolutely breath taking. From it's historical features, to the decor and even how the table was set every morning. Guitta is the sweetest lady and very welcoming. She knows all the best spots in Quebec City from shopping to dining. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room cozy. The location is perfect as you are right...

We just returned from a lovely visit. Guitta is an amazing hostess -- not just wonderful breakfasts every day (warm pastries, choice of crepes, French toast, or omelette, and cold cereals available, too), immaculate and homey house; but from the minute we walked in, I felt like I'd made a friend. Guitta really goes out of her way to make...

The home is a lovely old house, well preserved. We had a very nice room with comfy beds and great appointments. The breakfast was exceptional and the hosts friendly. The location is perfect for exploring Quebec City, close to attractions and great restaurants.

My husband and I stayed here in August 2011. Guita was a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed learning about the house and the city from her. Our room was very nice and super convenient to all of the places we wanted to visit.

The location cannot be beat! We parked our car (there is free parking, which is a bonus!) and didn't touch it again the whole time we were in Quebec City. The B&B is literally a few minutes walk away from all Old Quebec attractions including the Citadelle and the Plains of Abraham! The breakfast was delicious - in addition to...

Fabulous location in old Quebec City. Close to restaurants and all tourist sites. Don't need a car as you can walk everywhere. Loved the house with it's old world charm and the breakfast was spectacular, french toast made from croissants with fresh fruit and baked goodies. My wife was very happy as our hostess provided gluten free waffles and pancakes....

We stayed in this historic treasure 3 nights in July 2015, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Breakfast was always tasty with great variety including homemade treats. Our hostess Guitta was warm and welcoming and truly made us feel at home. The ambience of the historic building was complimented by our modern European bathroom. The Muzzeralls

This house has a very interesting history, built for James Thomson in the late 18th century: http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/thompson_james_6E.html The location is ideal for explorers of Vieux Québec. It is on a side street in the Upper Town that is close to many restaurants and historic sites, but that is also calm and quiet. My room was comfortable but fairly basic. Weak...
