We were fortunate to choose this boutique heritage hotel just outside La Malbaie centre.It has been modernised in an elegant way,There is a financial incentive to reserve directly with the hotel rather than through a third party.
We chose a standard room on third floor - sloping roof and dormer window - small but very cosy yet reasonably priced for what was a two night stay where we would be absent during the day.
.Importantly the mattress pillows and bedlinen were of high quality.There was a coffee machine.
The only drawback there was no lift.
The breakfast was very reasonably priced CAN$17 per person for a sumptuous and generous breakfast.With a forfait you paid the same price for an exceptional Sunday brunch

The inn is beautiful with updated rooms. It was clean, quiet, comfortable with a perfect mattress and thick towels. The price for the inn was a bargain for the area. The location is also great- on a side road with the St Lawrence River across the street. The real jewel of the inn, however, is the restaurant. Even if you don't stay at the inn, you should treat yourself to dinner or breakfast here. My husband and I had the fixed price 7 course dinner and breakfast, and both meals were incredible. This is the sort of inn that is worth making a return trip to.

This place exudes class from the moment you walk in! Set back from the main road and the river, the Chez Truchon is an elegant building with a well-manicured lawn and colourful garden. Whilst the smart houses across the street make an uninterrupted view of the St.Lawrence impossible, you do get glimpses of the river. I recommend requesting a front facing room on an upper floor. The first floor boasts a shared all-round terrace ideal for relaxing on sunny mornings or warm summer evenings.
Although famous in the area primarily as a restaurant – hosting amongst others the Mays and the leaders’ wives during this year’s ‘G7’ meeting – it offers very comfortable accommodation. We chose one of their Tourelle rooms which had a very comfortable double bed, dressing table, couch and roomy wardrobe together with a huge ground-to-floor mirror. The accompanying bathroom contained a bath, separate shower, and sink with the toilet usefully located in a separate tiny anteroom.
The breakfasts (which may be taken on the veranda if weather permits) are both substantial and of very high quality. In addition to various bread options and the usual tea/coffee, the cooked offerings are superb – omelettes, porridge, ‘full-English style’, as well as Canadian pancakes with maple syrup of course! Mind you, you have to get used to the Canadian(?) practice of everything coming together on your plate, including some much appreciated fruit.
We only ate dinner there once which, whilst it was very good, was very expensive.
Parking space is more than adequate. Service is hospitable and obliging although there was no help with bags.
A thoroughly professional operation.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay in June 2017. The room was the yellow one in the pictures. It was modern, very clean and comfortable. We did not have air conditioning in the room but were able to open 2 windows which provided a nice fresh breeze. There was also a ceiling fan.
We both a dinner and a breakfast at the Auberge. Both were exceptional in taste and service. The young lady serving us was completely bilingual in English and French.

When we stopped by here for the first time a little more than a year ago, the Auberge conquered our hearts and we have returned several times since. Maybe it has a spell on us. The hosts are exceptional. You can tell they are dedicated to making everybody's stay a memorable one. Just think of it; a charming, century old former residence, turned into an elegantly and tastefully refurbished establishment, where past and present live in perfect harmony, . . . with a talented chef who really knows how to tickle your taste buds. Our European visitors would have loved to stay a few more days.

The Auberge is located in a quiet neighbourhood, in the heart of La Malbaie, walking distance from pretty well everywhere. Whenever we can, we stay in one of the "Les Tourelles" rooms, with access to a large, second floor balcony that just begs you to put your feet up and enjoy the tranquil scenery. While the Auberge has several dining rooms, the terrace on the main floor, overlooking the garden, is the perfect place for a romantic evening.

The service was spectacular, attentive and professional. The logistics were clearly superior to many check-in and other experiences at a short stay. Everyone from host, reception to wait staff knew we were staying for a night that included a dinner and a breakfast. One friend could not come at the last minute, and they did not miss a beat. The invoice was re-adjusted upon check-out! The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable.

The restaurant on site was outstanding with professional wait staff, who demonstrated both knowledge and passion about their menu. The menu was a fixed 5-course menu with diverse selections of meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes with wonderful flavours. Check out the menu before coming! And if you're staying at the hotel, the price for the meal .... wait for it .....$75! Value and indulgence at the same time.

We have been coming from NH to La Malbaie for the last 6 years and Chez Truchon is our FAVORITE restaurant!! Lets start with the food....we usually choose the 4 course dinner for $42 canadian and the quality and taste is so delicious!! They have a extensive wine list and our favorite is La Vendemia which you cannot find in the USA. We have favorite servers Michael and Paul who work so hard to make one's dining experience truly memorable!! Also, they have a great fireplace to dine by and the servers are very attentive to make sure the customers are comfortable sitting by the fireplace. They even speak English and have English menus which is very helpful:). This restaurant deserves to be number one in La Malbaie and we look forward in coming back every year to dine at this number 1 restaurant in our book!!

We booked a room with river view. The view came from a little break of a cross street house and a tree so you hardly can see anything. Not talking about, you need to open all the curtains to see outside. While you open all the curtains, there is a balcony around and every hotel guests can be there which makes the rooms has no privacy at all. See the picture attached, the rooms are right behind the common area balcony.
The hotel is a remodel from an old house so everything is small. However, people are friendly, the room is very well decorated, and super clean.
We went for the downstairs restaurant which they broadcasts served G7 spouses. After they served my husband’s French onion soup with beef barley soup with a peace of cheese bread on top. We felt we had enough.

Thank you for your visit! Obviously, we are desapointed you did not enjoyed your stay with us. When we sell our rooms, we don't really sell a river view but many people prefer the river side instead the back side. We are proud of our inn for several reasons, and we have many satisfied customers, wich often come back. Concerning your meals, as it is written in the menu, the onion soup comes with barley and duck confit, you should not been surprised! We wish you will be satisfied by your next getaway!
