Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu
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
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site
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.
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.
How to Get There
**Pro Tip - No kids any even at St Hubert because it is in the casino - but they do have take away**
The room we had was quite large. Room only had a shower.
The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
We took a carriage ride around La Malbaie - the driver was fantastic.
The heated outdoor year round pool & hot tub were fantastic. Swimming outside in the snow is a fun experience!
We had a wonderful 3 days at this hotel. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the grounds were covered with snow. We enjoyed walking on the trail along the river and also the heated pools. Remy Allard in the Sports Center gave an amazing tour of the hotel giving us information about the history of the hotel and how it operates. He also set up a Carriage ride for us with Derek Mac Leod who gave us a great tour of La Malbaie and talked about the history of the area. The staff in the hotel were all friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the bar food and the people working there were very interesting to talk to. We also enjoyed the food in the restaurant La Table et Terroir and the staff were excellent. They always greeted us with smiles as if we were old friends. We especially enjoyed the Fish Stew and the Maple Butter Crepes! We will definitely return to this special hotel.
went there for a few days and the rooms were perfect very clean.
the staff very nice and polite.
On the bad side the PRICES i mean come on a beer at the bar with the tip is almost 14 bucks...the restaurants are also pricey,you can also go to the village where ther3 are lots of inexpensive places but you most take there car.
you can always order out but the hotel charges a faire.
Another excellent stay at the Fairmont in Charlevoix for the 2018 Casino De Charlevoix spiel. I will definitely be returning there, as we do every every year. The staff are amazing and definitely make you feel home when away from home .
Beautiful Hotel & beautiful surroundings. The hôtel was clean and inviting and the staff friendly and attentive to customer's needs. Loved the outside heated pools. I would reccomend the hôtel and I would certainly return maybe during the summer next time.
