Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Clarendon
Great location, building and valuefrom amc48c
Overall, if you are travelling to Quebec City as a couple or on business, I would recommend this as a great value hotel with a quinetessintially French and more personal feel. You will pay a lot more elsewhere but the Clarendon has a great location, ambiance and makes the ideal base to explore this great city.
What a great stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
The rate we payed included an excellent buffet breakfast (which I think would cost $20 or so per person), with eggs, bacon, sausage, lots of fruit, hash browns, cheeses, cereals, toast, french toast, waffles and more! The restaurant was always packed so try to get there early (before 10) to avoid the crowds. The valet cost $9 per night but there is no other option as there is very little parking in the old city. The streets are too narrow. There is no pool or fitness club but we wouldn't have used one anyway with so much to see in the city!
Overall, an historic hotel with nice staff, a great breakfast and the best location you could imagine! We would definitely stay there again.
mediocre hotelfrom RileyinLA
The breakfast buffet was nothing special either---
I guess I was hoping for something a bit special in the heart of this enchanting little city. Especially a little hotel with such an illustrious history.
I will be travelling there for work monthly and will be staying elsewhere despite the fact that my business takes me next door.

Bland Hotel in Good Locationfrom bortiuk
We found the staff to be rather lazy. Firstly the porters were happy to stand beside our car as we took out the luggage from the trunk. The reception staff were rude and unhelpful. The restaurant staff at breakfast were very slow at serving.
The entrance foyer did create a nice ambience with many decorative arts influences. We went to our room and were very disappointed. The room was very small and scruffy. The aircon was faulty. We had a room at the front of the building. The windows had secondary glazing and the outer windows were filthy. The only openable section of window was the size of a postcard. This is no joke - we stuck our had out of the window to take a photo of the view we were missing!
We did complain at reception but found a negative attitude. We were in the third week of our tour and only had one night in Quebec City so decided it wasn't worth the hassle. We were paying a pretty high room rate too.
Next time we would opt for a B&B in a nice part of town rather than the central location since distances are relatively small in the city.
Absolutely charming!from Briandan
Wonderful Hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
The food is great and there is wireless and dial up internet. This is right in the middle of shopping, so everything is right w/in walking distance. I would not stay anywhere else, this is the place for me to stay over and over again!
Not a very good winter hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Top Local Tips for Quebec City
Wear comfortable shoes and don't worry, they speak English! I know that every seasoned traveller knows to pack comfortable shoes, but I really was not expecting to have to wear the ALL the time. Also, I had so many people tell me that we would not be able to find people to speak English....not true. Our waiter in our hotel was from Manchester !
Old World Charm The best part of our trip to Quebec city was without a doubt the old world charm of the historic district within the fortified walls. You won't need a car for travle within the old city walls since the area is not all that large. If you view the city in sections over 3 days you can cover everything on foot without even breaking a sweat. If you do bring a car, make sure that you stay at a hotel with parking since there is very little parking in the historic district. Make sure that you try some of the many small restaurants that line the streets of the old district. Great food and charming service.
Seeing Quebec City If you are a walker, Quebec City is for you. Not too big and great streets. A bit of ups and downs including the wall and the stairs to the Lower City if you don't spend $1.75 each way on the Funicular. We preferred the Upper City to the more touristy Lower City, but both are worth the effort including the waterfront market. We were also surprised to find that it was not as expensive as we anticipated.
