We are concerned about the very high water consumption that a hotel establishment must use. While we want to reduce our consumption, we don’t want our customers to suffer, so we have opted to install high efficiency water saving aerators in the shower heads and faucets. According to studies, these are expected to save nearly 80% of water.


  • Light fixtures that have been purchased use energy-efficient bulbs.
  • The televisions are also energy efficient.
  • The sheets and comforters are from Quebec suppliers.
  • The work desks are made of balsam fir wood.
  • We wash and dry the sheets and towels on the premises, which eliminates the need to transport them to a third party. When we have the chance, we use the sun (that wonder!) to dry the sheets.
  • The household products used are ecological.
  • Organic soap dispensers are available.


  • Furnitures such as tables and chairs from the previous restaurant have been carefully improved and brought up to date (instead of buying new ones) in order to save resources, transport costs and budget.
  • As of 2020, we will apply a policy on food waste in our kitchen.
  • Composting is one of the actions we implemented since the beginning to reduce the burial of residual waste.
  • For the whole menu we favor local foods. It is not always possible to obtain certain ingredients, but our vision is to do so as much as possible and to encourage local seasonal food & short supply chains.


During renovations, we try as much as possible to think of our purchases as an investment and consider their sources, their materials and their individual impacts.

  • Noble materials are used such as wood from the region for floors and ceilings.
  • The paint used for the renovated rooms is free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • In terms of bathrooms, we used entirely recycled ceramic.
  • We have reused bath bases, toilets, sinks and fittings to reduce our purchases during the renovations.
