“Great place to stay in heart of Downtown”
We stayed two nights and found the accommodations quite comfortable. Being a renovated Victorian, there are no elevators, so we carried our stuff up two flights- good to keep in mind if this is an issue for you. The bed was comfortable, not hard at all, and A/C worked well, even on the third floor. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not extravagant, but quite pleasant with pastries, cereal, yogurt and very good coffee. Location couldn't be beat, and though there is very little parking on site, there are private, monitored garages on the next street over. All shops and eateries are only blocks away, and very accessible by walking. Metro stations 2 blocks away. I would definitely recommend Manoir Ambrose, and would stay here again myself if I get back to Montreal!
My only complaint is that I only stayed one night! This hotel is an old Victorian brownstone that's been renovated. The staff was extremely helpful and polite, and the hotel had all the charm reflected in the pictures. Make sure, if you bring a car, you reserve parking with the hotel in advance. This was not clear to me when I made the reservation. This hotel does not have its own lot, so a parking space needs to be reserved in advance for all guests who need one from a parking garage nearby. I lucked out, though - there was parking available on the street, so I could leave my car right out front for free. The room was adorable, and breakfast the next day provided a lot of great choices. One important note: this hotel is not handicapped accessible.
On business to McGill. Excellent location for walking to both McGill and to the restaurant area of Cresent Street.
“If I get back, I'd stay there again.”
I loved it. I thought it was so quaint. So Victorian. High ceilings with coving and chandeliers. Beautiful architecture. I thought the staff was so sweet and accommodating. Very friendly and helpful. The bed was clean and comfy. My room was quiet and I was never disturbed by other guests or noises even though the hotel was full all week. A nice big bathroom with instant hot water. True, no elevator. But that's part of the charm of staying in a Victorian. Circular staircases and plaster mouldings. The breakfast was wonderful. Plenty of it, too. Cereal, oatmeal, danish, croissant, muffins, assorted breads for toast, orange juice, coffee, hot chocolate, teas, fresh fruit, sometimes quiche. It was great. The location is really good for shopping and dining. It's close to the Metro. It's very close to Art galleries and museums. And just two or three blocks from anything. I very much enjoyed my stay and would love to go back.
just lovely! great value for the price! An old world feeling, clean and friendly
“Great centrally located hotel”
Great complimentary breakfast, beautiful 19th century hotel and room, quiet room, friendly staff, quiet street, great downtown/McGill location. We've stayed at the Ambrose dozens of times in the past 20+ years and never have been disappointed.
“hotel with character in downtown Montreal”
The hotel is very charming, and conveniently located. The room was large, and cleans, and the staff was very friendly and welcoming to us. The parking spot was definitely handy, and it's worth reserving it in advance. Highly recommended!
The hotel was close to McGill University allowing my daughter to easily moved into her dorm. The location was safe and quiet. The staff was friendly and professional, they spoke english, french and spanish fluently making it easy to request for assistance. Breakfast was simple but delicious. Their lounge area was quiet and peaceful. The room was clean and comfortable. Hotel was close to all shops and restaurants. I will visiting my daughter soon and I'm hoping to stay at Ambrose Hotel again.
“It is ok”
This hotel is nice, but take note that it is located in the old brownstone building with no elevator. This means you are lugging your suitcase up the steep narrow winding staircase all the way to the third floor. The rooms are nice, with all the basics, but heat is provided by hot-water pipes, so you can't control the temperature in the room. The woman running the place (at the desk, Toni) is very nice and knowledgeable about the area - she is a great person to talk to about things to see or places to eat.
“Well worth the money for Montreal”
A good small hotel, a bit aged (faded carpet, wires stuck to the wall, not inside), but comfy. Good friendly service, a very decent breakfast and well worth the money, compared with what my colleagues paid elsewhere. If you don't mind the stairs up, go for it.
