Over Hotel Paulin
Hotel Paulin was het eerste hotel van Caraquet toen het in 1891 haar deuren opende. Het is gelegen aan de waterkant, in het centrum van het dorp. Het is een mooi, zeldzaam voorbeeld van Acadian architectuur. Sindsdien heeft Hotel Paulin een trotse reputatie van het aanbieden van een speciale mix van de beste maaltijden op het Acadian schiereiland en gastvrije, comfortabele accommodatie. Tegenwoordig is Hotel Paulin een boutique hotel dat haar historische charme en elegantie heeft behouden. De kamers zijn comfortabel en vol karakter, de luxe suites op de derde verdieping bieden daarnaast een spectaculair uitzicht op de fraaie zonsondergangen boven de Baai van Chaleur. Dit hotel is Atlantic Canada op haar best!

"Very expensive, historical, family owned & operated"
This hotel has been around a long time and has a prestigious history and reputation for old-fashioned French charm and excellence. Built in 1891, the Paulin family still owns and operates this hotel, which operates with simplicity. It didn't seem to have a computer at the large antique desk. The billing is all written out by hand by Gerard Paulin at checkout. The large sitting room is comfortable, a good spot to get introduced to the owners, and become acquainted with other guests. We were a little early, and owners Karen & her husband Gerard were away, but their teenage son, bilingual in French and English as most of the population of New Brunswick is, courteously checked us in and showed us to our room. The room seemed opulent to the point of being a bit overdone - a little overcrowded with furnishings, lots and lots of pillows & heavy bedding, with an armchair awkwardly placed between the bed and the bathroom with no way to get around it. We would suggest the owners remove one or maybe two pieces of extra furniture and simplify the room decor with fewer pillows to make the room a little less overwhelming and more enjoyable. The en suite bathroom was also overcrowded, but we appreciated their desire to provide anything we could possibly need. It was an interesting experience. There will always be work to do on improving and maintaining this property, which will never probably have an elevator. But I read that the 3rd floor penthouse rooms are fantastic. I didn't get to peak because I didn't want to climb that extra set of stairs...thank you to the owners for their dedication to keeping this piece of French history alive. We slept well, by the way.
"A Northern Gem"
We are so pleased to have discovered Hotel Paulin - a gem along the beautiful Acadian coast. We were so impressed by the unique decor of our room, the special treat of being served fresh (and delicious) Arctic Char for our meal, and, most importantly, the warm hospitality of Karen and Gerard. We're sure that our first most memorable evening with them will not be our last because we arrived home greatly anticipating our next visit!
Hey!!! The hotel is not bad. Maybe it's me, that I prefer the hotels to be Normal or maybe modern. The rooms looks ok, but when you enter the hotel, everything looks old, and that's because all the decoration is really old. That fact for many people may look wonderful, but for me looks depressing. So, I don't want to be unfair!!! If you enjoy being surrounded by antiques, then I'm sure you'll give 5 stars to this hotel!! The hotel is clean and the bathroom of my room was beautiful. I never tasted the food!!
"A Special Place"
A stay at the Hotel Paulin is an amazing experience. The hotel itself is absolutely charming and an historical treasure. Gerard is the third generation owner and we loved his descriptions of the hotel's history. The rooms have been completely redone - ours was very comfortable with beatiful antique furniture and a great view of the ocean. The real reason we were there though was the dining experience. Gerard served a magnificent multi-course meal each evening pepared by his wife Karen - who is an outstanding chef with a creative flaire and a commitment to local ingredients. Karen checked with us in advance of our stay to make sure that our dietary needs would be met. Everything was delicious. Gerard served each course gracefully and recomended wonderful wines each night. We stayed two nights and left feeling we had connected with a piece of Canadian history and with our two charming hosts - Gerard and Karen.
From my first phone conversation with Karen to reserve the room, I knew it would be a great experience. Karen & Gerard are fabulous warm hosts. Gerard was born in the hotel and is third generation. His love and respect for his guests and their comfort is his prime concern. Karen is a magician in the kitchen. Her professional, award winning food styling and recipe development experience is picture perfect on every plate. All that and the rooms are tastefully decorated, the beds and pillows cozy and comfortable. Make it a point to go and stay there - you won't be sorry. They will exceed your expectations.
