Overlooking the St. Lawrence River in the picturesque town of La Malbaie (about 90 miles northeast of Québec City), the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu's lures visitors with its beautiful surroundings and upscale amenities. During your stay, you can take advantage of on-site activities like tennis, snowshoeing, ice skating and golf. If it's relaxation you seek, take a dip in one of the resort's saltwater pools or book a treatment at Le Spa du Manoir (renovated in 2015) before returning to your cozy digs adorned with wooden furniture, TVs and robes. Visiting foodies especially applaud the locally sourced cuisine at the award-winning Le Charlevoix Restaurant. The tasty fare served at Le Saint-Laurent and Le Bellerive restaurants also earn high marks, though some previous patrons do complain of high menu prices and subpar service. For a more casual dining experience, take your pick from Le Point Cardinal, the golf course's clubhouse, Le Phare or Le Brise Lobby bar. If you take part in the Le Club AccorHotels loyalty program, you can earn or redeem privileges such as complimentary nights and room upgrades.

Originally constructed in 1899, rebuilt after a fire, and reopened in 1929, this classic hotel (in the town of La Malbaie off of Route 138 East) is worth the 45-minute drive from Le Massif. Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, this Fairmont is reminiscent of a French chateau and boasts 405 rooms, three restaurants, a spa, skating rink, and a spacious lobby bar featuring live nightly entertainment.



Luxurious guest rooms of varying sizes are housed inside the historic château-style building. Some standard rooms with two beds are a little on the small side.
