Cobblestoned streets, pastry shops, glistening rivers and lakes, even the odd black bear – Québec throws together the best of France and Canada to thrilling effect. When it comes to hotels to stay at in Canada’s predominantly French-speaking province, the choices are equally compelling, from an old 1920s bank to a spot that’s ideal for whale-watching – and you don’t have to empty your bank account to find the perfect digs. Here are some of the best cheap options and hotel deals in Québec.

1. Auberge Québec Issime, for home-from-home coziness

This pretty, self-catering cottage has a shared kitchen with a wooden counter that’s perfect for breakfast with the kids or hanging out with pals. The rooms are gorgeously designed, with chandeliers and roll-top baths, and there’s even a piano in the house for singalongs.

Adding to the charm is a water feature, country-chic interiors – including elegant furniture and ornamental woodwork – electric fireplaces and therapeutic baths.
