Sitting on the Ottawa River, this CAA 4-Diamond hotel is the world's largest log structure. The centrepiece is the impressive hexagonal rotunda with a 19-metre stone fireplace. 

Founded in 1930, this rustic hotel is still beaming with charm. From the sprawling grounds to the chalet-inspired decor of small but comfortable rooms, Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello is memorable inside and out.

On-site dining options vary; fine dining at Aux Chantignoles for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. There's also the Bistro La Seigneurie, which is open daily from 5:30-11 p.m., and serves up bistro fare and cocktails.

The hotel's spa has registered massage therapists and offers treatments such as maple sugar body scrubs and green blanket body wraps. Guests can also relax around the fireplace in the Salon La Clairiere. Adjacent, the 23-metre indoor heated pool is encompassed by red cedar logs and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The resort has a host of activities included in the $31.04 inclusive of tax per night resort fee, ranging from stand-up paddle boarding and pedal boating in the warmer months to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter. There's also mini golf and tons of family-friendly fun, like on-site movie nights on weekends.

The grounds remain beautiful and the Spa experience was fantastic. Several of the staff that have been there for several years were also very professional and extremely friendly.

Chateau Montebello used to be an extraordinary place, a five-star resort. This is no longer the case. The rooms were bare...not even a bottle of water in the room or any little touch that would make you feel like you were in a five-star resort. The Chateau looked neglected and most staff looked like they were young kids who lacked training. We had dinner and paid $400. At that price, you would expect professional service but this was not the case. The table was bare, the waiter forgot to bring the bread basket, the filet mignon was undercooked, the rest of the food was fairly bland both in terms of taste and presentation and while the dinning room had only a few patrons, we had to wait a long time for service. The same happened the next day for breakfast. As it stands, the resort is more like a basic 3 stars. The Spa, however, lived up to its reputation and would give it five stars. I understand that the Chateau was sold to a different group of international investors and since then, the standards have been sub-par. Consequently, we would not go back and all of us felt that the price we paid did not deliver equal quality and service.

Property is beautiful. Indoor pool is fantastic - nice space, large pool, change rooms and Spa located in same building. Indoor and outdoor tennis courts. The lobby area is great for meeting up or for working, can easily find a quite space on the 2nd floor of the lobby to do some emails. Kids enjoyed the mini golf even though I thought it could use an update as it seems quite worn/ old. Buffet breakfast is great value for the kids at it was offered at 1/2 off the adult price. Lots of options even for the pickiest of eaters. Dining room space overlooking the river is very nice.
