From its cobbled laneways, echoing with the sound of horse and carriage rides, to its street artists and cosy stone-walled restaurants, Quebec City oozes atmosphere. And this historic hub – founded way back in 1608 – is a wonderland for all things typically Canadian: snowy festivals, sticky maple desserts and great beers. If you’ve never been, get planning now, starting with booking into one of these top B&Bs. And bring your (basic) French with you. Allons-y!

Le Widor, Petit Hotel

With a sprawling backyard, on-site pool and access to a full kitchen, this B&B is a good pick for families visiting in the warmer months. It’s possible to hire the whole place, too, which means this deck-fronted brick building, with its convenient location near the Plains of Abraham, can turn you into an honorary Quebec City local. Monochrome modern rooms set it apart from the many historic-style stays in the city centre.

The 18th-century schist cottage exterior, with its red-painted doors and window frames, and hanging baskets of greenery, is old Quebec down to an atmospheric tee. And the inside is as cosy as you’d expect: floral-print bedspreads, roaring fires in winter, sink-in sofas. Hosts Caroline and Kamal, who have been running the place since 1996, bring an international flair to their breakfast spread, with Moroccan speciality baghrir (pancakes) joining homemade yoghurt with fresh fruit.

All the boxes are ticked: prime location in the old city core, heritage atmosphere – it was once the first town hall in Quebec – and comfortable rooms. Also a stellar breakfast, different every day, prepared by Madame Balti: stacks of fluffy pancakes, drenched in local maple syrup; chewy bagels with cream cheese; and as much hot coffee as you’d like. The friendly welcome will get you feeling like a Quebec City local in no time.

Exposed stonework, wood beams and polished four-posters all add character to this Vieux Quebec (old city) B&B. It’s set in a pretty home dating to 1793, built by a British soldier who survived the pivotal Battle of the Plains of Abraham – historic buffs will love its story, while everyone else will enjoy the sightseeing tips from licensed city tour guide and owner Greg, and the breakfasts of home-baked muffins and fruity jams.

B&B La Marquise de Bassano

The lounge spaces at La Marquise are what make this old centre B&B such a genuine home from home: curl up in front of the wood fire with a book, tickle the keys of a grand piano; and get stuck into a glass of wine poured out by your friendly hosts. Each room is different, but all are equally cosy, from book-packed ‘The Library’ to loft space ‘The Nook’, with its atmospheric sloped ceilings and streams of afternoon sunshine pouring in.

Quebec City draws history-lovers in droves – for obvious reasons. If exploring the Plains of Abraham is one of your priorities while you’re here, the location of Au Petit Roi is perfect – it’s just a 10-minute walk away. The old brick-walled living room, with its wooden breakfast bar and patterned throw pillows, is a cosy, atmospheric place for a fortifying breakfast of crepes – the fuel you need for a day’s sightseeing.

    Crisp white sheets, chandelier-style pendant lights, swirling old staircase – they all add to the charm of Auberge La Chouette, primely located across from Esplanade Park in Vieux Quebec. Since you’re just minutes’ walk from one of the city’s top attractions, the grand citadel, you’re perfectly placed for a day’s exploring. Then, should you be looking for a break from classic Quebecois cuisine, return to the hotel for a pan-Asian dinner (tom yum soup, pad Thai).

    Château Fleur de Lys Quebec

    Sandwiched between parks, moments from the impressive city citadel, Château Fleur de Lys is an especially lovely choice for a summertime break, when you can really enjoy Quebec City’s green spaces. The shell might be 19th century, but the interiors are luxurious and current, with modernist wallpaper splashes, statement pendant lights and claw-footed bathtubs looking out over iconic city scenes. Equal parts refined and friendly – no wonder this place has walked off with so many prizes.

    Château du Faubourg

    Between the Instagrammable stone exterior and the throw-back core – luxurious fabrics, candelabra-style lamps and antique chairs – it really does feel like you’ve been transported to a chateau when you check in here. The rooms are just as stately as the public areas, whether you choose the pearl-hued Master Bedroom or tome-stuffed Peachy Library. And given its location – on central Rue Saint-Jean, moments away from diverse bars and restaurants – you can satisfy that sushi or patisserie craving tout de suite.

    Within easy walking distance of the Plains of Abraham and the Grand Théâtre performing arts complex, this pretty brick-fronted B&B is a bit of a treat, with a tranquil sun-speckled garden and bright, fresh rooms. Elegant public spaces include the dining area where your breakfast of baguette and poached eggs is served up: a lovely domain, with its brass-based lamps, heritage furniture and a column-framed fireplace. There are mags and books for a lazy sofa afternoon.
