Really enjoying taking a break at mo rebellion. The charm of this beautiful place and warmth of the fireplace on the lobby keeps us wanting to come back every year. The wonderfulfood and the staff are just an added bonus. They certainly make sure you enjoy yourself. A must visit place if you have never been!

Third visit in a few years! We keep coming back

Montebello has a lot to offer as a quick escape from Ottawa, but I wouldn't want to spend a whole week here, especially in the Fall/Winter, when there's maybe a bit less to do outdoors.

The hotel is a relaxing spot, very nicely decorated, and the buffet breakfast was a treat (we got the Bed & Breakfast package, with a 2x Queen room and breakfast for 2 adults for 530$ a night - NOTHING here is ever cheap, but this was my third visit so it continues to be a nice place to go for the weekend). Staff was very accommodating to the kids, who very much enjoyed the indoor pool and the breakfast lounge.

Great hotel!

If you want to pamper yourself you need to spend a few nights at this exceptional hotel. A beautiful original looking hotel with superior service and great amenities. I would highly recommend the spa to anyone for a super relaxing experience.

We arrived in chateau Montebello with a reservation for a night stay and we were in formed that there were no rooms for us. We had made the reservation prepaid in Europe and the local agents Welcomebeds were responsable for it. The solution for the night was a local B&B and the hotel Director assured we would receive the amount we paid. After 4 months we had nothing in return. So if you have a reservation thru Welcomebeds watch out.
