Next, select the type of room you would like and then click the grey “Book” button. There are four steps to booking a room. First, choose the type of room you would like, then select how many breakfasts or dinners you would like included (not obligatory). Then input your contact and payment details. You will then be shown a reservation summary, which we will also send you by email.

After I book online, how long will my room be reserved for and what time can I check-in?

Online reservations are guaranteed by your credit card.

How will I know that my reservation has been successful?

You will receive a reservation number.

If you’re booking for the same day, you must book your room before 18:00. If you’re booking for any other date, you can book at any time.

Payment

Do I have to pay when I book?

Your payment details guarantee your reservation. You will not be charged until you arrive at the hotel, except for Tour of the Gaspé Peninsula packages, where we ask for a 25% deposit.

Security and confidentiality

Do I have to give you my credit card number to book online?

We need your payment details to save and guarantee your reservation. All payment details are encrypted. If you do not guarantee your room with a valid credit card, we reserve the right to free your room after 16:00 on your arrival date.

Is it not dangerous to enter my credit card number on your website?

Not at all! Any personal data you provide when you book is ENCRYPTED. We use an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) system, its one of the best systems available. This means that third parties cannot intercept your data. We use an authenticated certificate. You can check by following these steps:

• WITH FIREFOX – Double click on the padlock in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser. In the pop-up window, click “Security”. The words “The identity of this website has been verified” will appear, meaning that the website you are on is protected. You can also click on the “Display” button to see the security certificate’s details.

• WITH INTERNET EXPLORER – Version 6: Double click the small gold padlock in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser. This will bring up all the information about the certificate and its validity. Version 7: click on the padlock to the right of the address bar and then click “Display certificates”. This will bring up all the information about the certificate and its validity.
