What We Love

  • Tons of outdoor and indoor activities no matter the season — from golf, tennis and volleyball to gambling, billiards and snowmobiling
  • Steam room, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, and three pools, including two outdoor saltwater pools, one heated for year-round use
  • Grand architecture and a lush interior combined with stunning views of the St. Lawrence River

What To Know

  • Main floor rooms give easy access to pools and the outside, but they're a popular choice for families and are generally noisier
  • Three restaurants on-site (and five in summer) are convenient but will significantly jack up your bill
  • The Casino de Charlevoix, in a building adjacent to the hotel, is handy for guests who want to gamble, but busloads of casino visitors can fill hotel restaurants

Overview

Sumptuous 19th-century stay marrying the exquisite charm of small town Quebec with fine luxury and service

The Look

With its majestic location perched above the St. Lawrence River, this “Castle on the Cliff” is a choice haven for foodies and oenophiles. After fire destroyed the original hotel in 1928, Canadian architect John Archibald designed Le Manoir Richelieu in the style of a French castle; an array of turrets, gables and towers adorn the stone exterior, which stretches gracefully along the escarpment. The grandeur continues inside the hotel, where the spacious lobby and reception area blend such sumptuous design elements as a generous application of rich mahogany, leather and brocade, as well as archways and medieval chandeliers.

Bed and Bath

Guestrooms are swathed in tradition, with wallpaper, botanical prints, bedcovers, heavy drapes and valances. Thankfully, tradition allows for a comfy bed and plush white duvet. Room size varies but, unless upgraded, tends to be modest. Notably, many of the suites with river views are among the smallest. Bathrooms are adequate in size and well appointed, with dark marble counters and large walk-in showers with a powerful rainfall showerheads. The paraben-free, earthy-scented Le Labo Rose 31 toiletries (in recycled bottles) are a welcome and progressive touch.

Beyond

Part of the pleasure of staying at the sprawling Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is ambling from one part of the hotel to another as the mood hits you. Done lounging with your book in the large leather chair in front of the fireplace? Move over to the sunny lounge, order yourself a cold Chardonnay and gaze deep into the St. Lawrence River. And don’t miss the bountiful Sunday buffet at Le Bellerive, where you can indulge in the sweet and succulent maple crepes.

Reviews

Looking for traditional high quality and not disappointed.
Norma S

This grand old dame of the upper St. Lawrence has retained its historical charm. The breakfast buffet was wonderful but we were a little disappointed that we could have have a traditional full course sit down dinner in the grand dining room.

Old world charm on the Sea

The road alone from Quebec City, Canada that meanders along rolling hills and views of the sea is beautiful. And when you arrive to this lovely destination in a sparsely populated town called La Maibaie, you know the journey was just the beginning. The hotel itself has a lot of character and the grounds surrounding, with trails to the sea and up into the hills are lovely. My best friend and I where surprised to see how quiet it was and how lucky we were to have it mostly to ourselves. A must visit!
