Hotel Tadoussac is a historic property; built in 1864 its instantly recognisable whitewashed walls and red roof have made it a local landmark and many people come to Tadoussac as much to see the hotel as the whales. With 149 rooms it offers a good range of sleeping options with either a garden view or outlook towards the St Lawrence River. It is surrounded by well-kept lawns and has a small heated outdoor swimming pool as well as well as games room, tennis court and miniature golf course. Two restaurants offer either an a la carte seasonal menu or a buffet featuring local specialities, and the cocktail bar is a great place to enjoy a sundowner. Overall the property is a little dated in places however if you want to immerse yourself in the wonderful heritage of the area, then this is the place to stay.
