We stayed in a standard room in the lodge. It had plenty of room for all of our winter gear to dry overnight. Room was clean and very quiet we had a good sleep. There were a bunch of people in the hotel so the kitchen was open. We bought the package which included the choice between two dinners (I would not recommend the Osso Bucco) and a breakfast buffet the next day. It was a cold night and we did not inquire about the hot tub. Upon arrival we had to go to the lounge to find someone to check us in but we were booked in right away. There is a small room off the dinning room with a fireplace that is nice to sit in chat and relax if you can get them to turn off the television as it seems to double as the living room for staff. There is a large garage you can pay extra to park your sled in but it is not so warm that ice will melt off the sled overnight. We did not have a problem following the signage from town after fuelling but another group had some difficulty finding the place.
We were on motorcycles and found we had to travel 12-14 km's on a dirt road but the road was good.
We called for a room the only thing left was a Chalet, Glad for that because it was awesome. Nice people and very clean. Chalet had 2 bedrooms, living and kitchen area and l deck to sit out on. No internet but we didn't mind.
We stayed an overnight here at the start of the season and were the only guests. We were given a free upgrade to a suite of rooms with a fantastic balcony view of the mountains. The room was spotless and the wifi OK but a little slow. The cafe was not open as it was start of the season but the receptionist did offer to make us some snacks if needed. We had planned to barbecue anyway so found the picnic area with views of the mountains very pleasant.
We stayed here one night before setting out on a 5-day ski tour in the park. Its main selling point is that the next morning you are at the trailhead, no more driving required. Room was a good size (we got the largest room) for staging our gear and packing our backpacks. However the room was over the bar which blared thumping music until well after we'd gone to bed. Did not see any other skiers staying there, only lots of snowmobilers. Food was pricey and so-so. Breakfast better than dinner. St Octave is a ghost town with an interesting back story and we enjoyed a walk among the remaining buildings and down the roadway with hand-lettered historical markers - here was the first mass celebrated, here perished a family in the fire. There's a great view of the snowy mountains in the distance which adds to the excitement of heading off on a backpacking trip because you can see your destination.
In contrast to other writers, we found the room, while simple, was newly renovated and clean. Services were limited; no internet it is true, but that is the case in many places in the Gaspe, and the manager told us it is expected soon. There is a new indoor swimming pool, but we didn't try it out. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There was a limited menu, but the quality was more than adequate. Breakfast, which was included, had fresh fruit, cereal, toast, yogurt etc.
