Getting to KNOW US


The Royal Dalhousie was originally built to produce millstones for the flour mills throughout Quebec. As time went by, the building became Chinic Hardware and served the city’s local community. Finely restored and transformed into a hotel by the Biron family, residents and businesspeople from Old Quebec since 1977, the condos have been available to accommodate tourists since 2011. The vaults that stored the documents of the businesses of yesteryear have been preserved and integrated into the décor of this historic building.


Our mission

Today, with its spacious, luxurious units, the Royal Dalhousie is a testament to the Biron family’s desire to preserve this building’s historical value, while offering their guests the most comfortable, high-quality experience possible, in an enchanting environment. As we are located in the heart of the Place-Royale, you’ll be able to walk to numerous points of interest in Quebec City, including the Château Frontenac, the Parc-Montmorency national historical site, the museum of civilization as well as a multitude of small boutiques, businesses, and nice authentic restaurants. This is the area travellers appreciate the most!
