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.
Step outside of Manoir du Lac Delage and you just about fall into the pretty Lake Delage. Expect stunning views, both of the lake and the wooded expanse beyond, at a cheap hotel in Québec that’s perfect for a quick break away from it all. Adding to the charm is a water feature, country-chic interiors – including elegant furniture and ornamental woodwork – electric fireplaces and therapeutic baths.
Plonked in the center of Becancour, Hebert Hotel has a great location, close to sights like Boucher de Niverville Manor, the Pierre Boucher Museum, the Michel Mill of Gentilly and the Old Prison of Trois-Rivieres. This is also the ideal hotel to catch a sports game – Becancour Arena and the Trois-Rivieres Hippodrome are both nearby – or hit the area’s slopes for some cross-country skiing or snowmobiling.
A park-and-fly type parking service and close proximity to Québec City Airport and downtown Québec city make Hôtel Cofortel a favorite among business travelers. A business center and three meeting rooms mean you can extend your Lafayette visit by combining work with leisure. Round off your day with a session in the fitness center. An added perk is the freshly-brewed coffee and pastries fresh from the bakery every morning.
