There’s a reason Francophiles flock to Montreal. The cultural capital of Canada has the best parts of France combined with a local flair, resulting in a creative haven. If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the endless patisseries, delis and markets – go on a quest to find the best poutine in the city. And when it’s time to rest your head, opt for a bed and breakfast in Montreal where days start with a culinary adventure.

1. La Refuge Du Poète

Bed and Breakfast

Le Refuge du Poete resides within an old stone house that dates back to 1854. The four rooms are quaint and homey, while breakfast – which includes gluten-free waffles, eggs benedict, crepes and a tasting platter of local cheeses – is served in the garden in the summer months. It all sits on a pretty street in Vieux-Longueuil, a short walk from St Mark Park and within half an hour of downtown Montreal (by metro or river shuttle).

2. Accueil Chez Francois

Sitting directly across from leafy La Fontaine Park, Accueil Chez Francois offers a stylish stay in the heart of Montreal. Rooms are chic and well-appointed with views of the park, and a breakfast of crepes, waffles, omelets and homemade jam is served each morning. For those who want to explore the area in an offbeat fashion, you can rent a two-person bicycle.

3. Héritage Victorien

Bed and Breakfast

This Montreal bed and breakfast is a grand townhouse with a storied history. A portrait of Louise Amelia Monk, who lived in the home in the late 19th century, adorns the living room wall, and her diary is on display as well. Rooms live up to the name, with period details such as gilt-framed mirrors, carved wooden headboards and deep-soak clawfoot tubs. Even better? The Héritage Victorien is located in the Quartier Latin in downtown Montreal, a lively area with a slew of cool bars – if you’re a beer aficionado check out Le Saint-Bock.

4. L’Escogriffe B&B

Plonked in the center of Montreal’s famed Gay Village, L’Escogriffe is a mens-only B&B. It has a friendly and welcoming vibe plus four bedrooms, two shared bathrooms and a sun terrace on the roof. Come morning, there are full English and Irish breakfasts available, and there are bicycle and car rentals should you want to explore.

5. Auberge Le Bons Matins

Behind a stunning brick townhouse facade lies this bohemian-style pied-a-terre. Auberge Les Bons Matins is nothing if not vibrant – hardwood floors and exposed brick fireplaces are offset by eccentric artwork, brightly colored patchwork duvets and pastel-hued walls. Rooms vary in size, but most have four-poster beds, wood-burning fires and large spa baths.

6. Gingerbread Manor

Bed and Breakfast

With the pretty urban square of Carré St-Louis just around the corner, Gingerbread Manor is perfectly placed for exploring the vibrant dining and nightlife of Montreal. The three-storey townhouse exterior – which dates to 1885 – makes way for five elegant rooms, each individually decorated but most with king-size beds and bay windows. Breakfast is a sumptuous affair, think banana-nut pancakes, parfaits, butter pecan French toast and lime poffertjes (Dutch pancakes).

7. Gite Ocoin B&B

Just a 20-minute walk from the city center, in a quiet part of the city, Gîte Ocoin is a four-bedroom abode housed in a red brick building. Rooms are individually decorated, creating a cozy atmosphere. Each morning a continental breakfast can be served on the private terrace and there’s a reading nook for when you need a bit of downtime.

8. Studio Living

A design-led B&B set within a boutique redbrick rowhouse, Studio Living has rooms that will appeal to minimalists with chic wood floors, white tiled bathrooms and pendant hanging lights.
