Pros: located right on the sea shore, unique decor and ambiance, friendly and professional service, good restaurant. All is very clean and adequate. Cons: traffic on the road is loud in the day, and you can't do much about that. An economic room will give you a tiny tiny private bathroom. A large person cannot use the shower, and can barely sit right on the toilet, too close to the wall.
First, the welcome at reception is outstanding. EVERYONE we spoke to was cheerful, welcoming and friendly. The hotel is something to see. It has a bit of Gaudi style on the outside and the rooms are rustic and comfortable. Old wook floors and plush bed. Very pretty. The included breakfast was very good. There was a choice of 4 different breakfasts with coffee. No refrigerator in the room and the room was a bit small. Other than that, everything was perfect.
I loved this little place on the water. Travelling for business it has everything we needed. We had drinks and lobster dinner in the restaurant, wonderful friendly service, and a very nice breakfast the next morning. The shop and art has interesting items to browse and buy. For 2 Aussie the offer of the owner to drive us to our business meeting with very kind and unexpected. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds and nice furniture.
We stayed at the hotel, ate at the restaurant and posed with the art work. It is a nice stop either to just eat, look in the store or stay the night. Only warning that rooms have windows and a fan but no air conditioning but being beside the water keeps it cool. The staff was very friendly. Try the saint flavie honey wine with your meal if you like something sweet. I had mine with blueberry. Beautiful sunsets from beach or room.
St. Flavie was our first stop in a two week Gaspesie road trip. We came across the small motel associated with the Centre D'Art while doing Internet research for the trip. What a pleasant surprise when we got there! Unusual wooden statues from the front lawn all the way to the sea. My mother, who visited Gaspesie 50 years earlier, spent over an hour taking photos of the outside. The reception staff, who also looked after the art gallery and attached restaurant, were wonderful and very helpful. Our two rooms overlooked the water, and we could see the statues emerging and receding with the tides. The rooms were spotlessly clean and spacious. We had an early dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Food was well prepared and reasonably priced. I had the lobster special - very tasty though messy to eat. The bib our waitress provided came in handy. My parents shared a seafood pie, while my wife had the cod special. Having a children's menu was a definite plus.…
Centre D'Art Marcel Gagnon has received mixed reviews, so I wondered whether it was worth a visit. It is worth a visit. We had room # 10 which faced the road. We tried to change to a water view but they were full. I know you heard about the road noise. We had our window wide open and there was road noise, but it did not prevent us from getting a good night's sleep. The room is small and I would not suggest it for more than one night. However it was attractively decorated and efficiently laid out. The key point is that it was neat and tidy. We decided to try dinner even though some reviews were negative. If you expect gourmet dining, go elsewhere. If you want warm friendly service and a nice meal, this place will do just fine. We split the game terrine to start and had the seafood linguini, with a nice white house wine. Our server made an ordinary meal outstanding. Sometimes it pays to remember that most of us are ordinary folks, and an ordinary dinner that is well served can be a very special evening. Our breakfast of two eggs, home fries, toast and jam, fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee was served with a smile and kind words. If warm friendly service, middle of the road food and a smallish but well appointed room in a funky location seems interesting, then this Inn is worth a visit.…
This is a great place to stay. Just a few rooms so best to reserve. The owner is an artist so there is a gallery of his work and a few others. the sculptures that are in the water are a sight to see. Some are submerged as the tide comes in and a few float on a raft. The food was great and service was friendly and very helpful. Language is not an issue. The rooms were great and we had one look out a the water. The sunset was spectacular. Would stay here again if in the area.
My flight from Mont Joli airport was cancelled due to heavy fog, and I had to spend the night in the area. WIth many of the hotels filled up, I ended up here at Centre d'Art Marcel Gagnon. And what a wonderful surprise it was. This is a quaint hotel that sits right on the shores of the St. Lawrence Seaway. I opened the window and was greeted by a pleasant breeze and the soothing sounds of the waves. But the most impressive aspect of this hotel is the staff. They went out of their way to help me - a stranded traveller who doesn't speak much French - feel right at home. They were proactive and helpful in every way - I can't say enough positive about how they treated me. If you're looking for a peaceful night,and a friendly staff, this is for you. Instead of staying in the city of Rimouski whenever I come to town, I will stay here.…
We happened upon this hotel on a cold rainy September night on the way to Quebec City and were thankful they took us in. It's an unusual place and the rooms are dated, but the price was right. The food was ok but the most intriguing thing was a series of 80 eerie life-size concrete figures in a row leading to the hotel parking lot from the St. Lawrence.
Last week while traveling from one place to another we stayed one night here. Reception was very nice, room also nice with nice view of St-Lawrence river and the unusual art forms of Marcel Gagnon. I recemmend this establishment as a very nice place to stay and relax. You can also visit their on-site art gallery (charming). Although they have a restaurant on the premises I would avoid it at all costs. I ordered a beef brochette (medium) and my wife ordered a chicken brochette. What a disappointment my beef brochette was almost raw and my wife suggested we switch plates as she does not mind rare. So we switched and I must saw the chicken was overdone and tasted dry and chewy while my wife had trouble negotiating the chunks of beef which were difficult to cut. We tried to make the most of our meal by eating the blah rice, so-so salad, and house wine (not bad). When waitress asked if we were enjoying the meal I told her that it was not good but that her personal service was very nice. I also mentioned at pay-out desk that meal was not even adequate. Both waitress and cashier said they were sorry to here that and that they would relay our bad experience to management. I am not a person to make a scene but I do think the experience should go unmentioned. Do go and stay there. It is a nice place, but make other arrangements for supper. Our stay also included a small breakfast which was adequate but when I asked for extra toast I was brought 1 slice cut in half and charged $1 for a toast.…
