Seriously, I am a season traveller and this hotel is not worth the price. Not only are the rooms old (yes its an old log cabin) but then again, there is much room for improvement especially at the cost per night. Not only is the price steep, and the room is old,but they also charge 25$ per person for 'activities'. We had rain all day and so we couldn't use the facilities other than the pool and gym (which hotel charges for pool/gym??) so we basically were charged regardless. I was really disappointed.. total price with no other amenities (pay movies were at 16$) ended up being 450$ for one night. It is a beautiful spot, but simply use the grounds and pay for the activities and enjoy but don't bother staying..
fantastic location and landscape/lake around the property. A beautiful main lobby with open atrium and chimney with mostly Wood finishes. The bedding of the rooms were just fantastic. Except for few mistakes, all was good, the food, the stay and the staff. Excellent for winter and summer
We stayed Aug. 8th and 9th. to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We asked for a room with a water view. The room was pleasant but the water view was limited and certainly not worth paying extra for. The bathroom had some mold on the ceiling and shower tiles, not what I had expected to find at a Fairmont Hotel. The bed was lumpy and did not make for a restful sleep. Restaurants: we had an evening meal at Chantignoles. The food was EXCELLENT, and very well presented, the service was also excellent. In the morning we had breakfast in the Chantignoles. This was a huge DISAPPOINTMENT. We had looked at the menu in our room and knew what we wanted to order. The waitress arrived (no name tag was visible) and we were told breakfast was buffet only. We insisted on seeing the menu and eventually placed our order. We waited ONE HOUR before the food arrived. My husband had ordered a hot meal, it arrived lukewarm! In the afternoon we had a snack served in the outdoor pool area. The snack came along with French fries which were greasy and very, very over cooked. Disgusting. The grounds and amenities are excellent and the $25 resort fee gives you access to bicycles, canoes and other activities. All staff (except our no name breakfast waitress)were friendly and helpful. The likelihood of us returning to the Fairmont at Montebello is very unlikely and it certainly puts into question the quality of Fairmont Hotels and Restaurants throughout Canada.
Great service, very quiet, great food (fancy and perfectly priced lunch buffer). Very beautiful foyer! I would never bring my toddler, as I saw a couple do that mistake. They need to find a solution for their parking...
My husband and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at Chateau Montebello; our first get away as newlyweds! From the moment of our arrival to the moment of departure we were impressed with the excellent service. Our room "the Helmut Schmidt" was very comfortable and had a magnificent panoramic view of the beautiful grounds, especially, at sunset! The dinner in the dining was impressive as we savoured each delightful bite. We also enjoyed the outdoor BBQ dinner the second night for an entirely different experience! We made new friends and had time for some tennis before checking out on our last day! We look forward to returning in the future to celebrate an anniversary or other special occasion.
The view as you enter the main building is breathtaking. An expanse of log & timber surrounding a massive stone fireplace. You know the building is old but you are about to experience a one of a kind stay. The room layouts are not like any hotel you have stayed in before. The windows open to let in the summer breeze and all the aromas of the surrounding forest. I loved the history and the location by the river. We planned our vacation around the famous Sunday Brunch. I can only wish I had more room to try more of the many dishes. Come hungry. Always leave room for Sugar Pie.
Everything was just about perfect except for the minor notes. I'm certain the minor mentions could be addressed experiencing very little costs and effort. I'm certain the older visitor would appreciate things that benefit one as they get older.
My family and I were pleased with our stay at Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello. Our sons participated in many activities that were offered to us like basketball, tennis and biking. We were able to connect as a family.
Fantastic property and location. Classy yet old world charm. Dining is outstanding. Staff are excellent. Many activities without leaving the grounds. Excellent golf course moments away. Some rooms (213) are newly renovated so try for those; simply perfect accommodation with great comfort and quality.
We just stayed at Fair,ont Montebello last week. My husband and I were flipping between fairmont Tremblant or Fairmont Montebello. For the simple fact that we'd already been to Tremblant, and never Montebello, we decided to try it. We LOVED it and wished we could have stayed longer but it was sold out. This hotel, built in 3 months in 1930 consists of over 10,000 red wood cedars. The character and charm of this hotel is beautiful. The enormous fireplace in the centre is stunning - I want to go back in the fall/winter just to sit by this majestic fireplace. The grounds are huge - there is every activity you can think of - swimming, kayaking, canoe, pédalo, paddle boarding, tennis, biking mini-putt, walking/jogging paths, etc. And the staff - the service was impeccable! Absolutely 5 star quality. From the front desk, to the terrasse, to the pool, to the dining room. Hats off to a historical masterpiece made even better by the quality of its service! We will definitely go back!
