Had a very good stay here, staff was really friendly helpful and the restaurant was great for dinner. I recommend the Dore (Walleye), had it both nights it was so delicious. Rooms nice, most of the basic amenities you would expect. Also they let us park our motorcycles securely right outside the front door. Couple minor blips like no caffeine coffee the first breakfast, but put that down to covid supply chain problems and note, no elevator to second floor (if you need one.) But remember, you really are a long way from Kansas here Dorthy, so expect to miss the odd thing.

Radisson is mainly a base for Hydro-Québec workers located 620 km north of Matagami. It's a long, long, long drive....Auberge Radisson is a good accommodation in such a remote area. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and Wi-Fi worked well. The restaurant onsite is open for breakfast and supper, we had all our meals there and it was very good. The main reason to go to Radisson outside work is to visit the hydro-electric dam and I would say the Auberge is the best option that far north.

We travelled to the area to show our children where their Dad had worked in '75&'76 on the "project of the Century".
We retraced his steps, taking the old photo album and taking new pics on the same locations. We live at the hub of the great lakes in Ontartio and are used to wilderness. Finding facilities SO VERY VERY good and overly friendly people was REFRESHING. It had been all those years since my husband had been there, but we agree we will be back in the next 3 years. The hotel is exactly as it should be for a company town and one that has to fight the elements. The only down fall is the 600km from Matagami Que. the road is(or was) paved but is in poor shape with batch cracks that seem like craters. Impossible to dodge. Don't haul a trailer whatever you do, and take a vehicle with the best tires you can find! We took my husbands work extended cab( construction) truck, so no worries, other then having to have the front end checked next week.
The hotel is nice enough and reasonable that you can stay a few days...the resturaunt was good and the only reason we ate there was they had some native meat on the menu. It is really a bit too fancy for the type of travellers.....great little restraunt across the road tho' with large family style portions!(you get hungry in the clear air) :)good luck...message me if you need more info planning your trip :)

Stayed here a few times just overnight.

Settlement is principally for hydro-electric workers. Hotel situated fairly central in the settlement with general food store and bar/restaurant across the road. Small hospital with pharmacy nearby. A bank with cashpoint is attached to the hotel building complex. There have been extensive renovations to the hotel's public areas recently and I think I left on the day that the restaurant re-opened, so cannot comment on that.

Bi-lingual staff in Reception though French dominates the area. Rooms of reasonable size on two floors. Clean, comfortable and warm in winter. You won't want to go far in winter.

Radisson is situated at the end of the road northwards from Montreal I believe. Beyond that you will need a skidoo for much of the year. So it is remote from 'civilisation' but quiet, rather stunted forest is all around with bear and wolf sighting sometimes, I am told. Never seen them there myself.

If you fly in via La Grande Riviere Airport, you will be faced with a v e r y long taxi ride with fare to match. Think around $75 each way . Taxis take credit cards !

There is a motel across the road (never been there) and surprisingly a campsite quite nearby if hotel full but the Radisson has always managed to squeeze me in.

It was a good place to sleep. Average size room. Soft bed that was well used. The floors in the hall and rooms squeeked and flexed so they were noisy. Tiny bathroom. All that said, it is your only choice and is not a bad place to lay your head for the night. The restaurant was closed and that was a disappointment as it came well reviewed. The hotel wifi worked slowly but at least they did have internet. All in all, no complaints.

It was an ok place to stay in town and probably the only or best choice you really have. it was right beside the place to take tours of the power plants so that was very convenient Food is very expensive in the restaurants in town so I recommend that you bring your own..

The rooms are comfortable and reasonably spacious, and basically equipped with wifi, fridge and coffeemaker. The hotel really seems to be a base for people working for or with Hydro-Quebec, and facilities may be limited while you are there as they get priority. The restaurant was only open to Hydro-Quebec while I was there, but it may be that it is closed for other guests in winter anyway. That meant going to another place down the road for breakfast (unless you have your own in the room) and other meals. In winter at -35c, you have to be enthusiastic about that first thing in the morning. There is a bar, but I am not sure whether it has more than chips/nuts to eat. A few points to note: The reception closes at 8pm when the front door is locked, so test your room key on the main door before you go out and make sure it works, otherwise you might face a cold wait until someone else shows up to let you in. Also, if you plug your car block heater into the posts, remember that Hydro-Quebec vehicles have power lines at the back of their cars, not at the front. That means they drive past the bay, and reverse into it, rather than drive into it nose first. If you don't do the same, the parking layout goes haywire, so make sure you have a long power lead and reverse in like they do.

I was off to visit Hydro-Québec facilities in the Baie-James. I was first expecting a hostel or something similar, but on location, I was pleased to find out that it actually was a decent hotel, just like the ones we get to see in big cities.

This hotel is located at the end of the road in northern Quebec. With a population of 450 Radisson is extremely small and remote (700 km in the bush). Altough a bit old this hotel offers a better deal than others located in more densely populated cities. The restaurant is making a serious effort at providing good quality food with a zest of originality. In fact, this hotel was much better then I expected. I also liked the meals I have ordered. Staff was also helpfull. Congratulation. I don't see how you could make it better in such a location.

We stayed 2 night in the hotel Radisson in ordre to visit the hydro-quebec dam. The location was perfect as it was right in the hydro Quebec complex. Also, it's probably the best option in town. The room was clean and the washroom seems brand new, but a little bit small. I think they really nead new carpets has ours seems really old. Still, we sleep well. It's seems that the restaurant is a must, but you need to reserve to make sure you have a table for dinner.
