For an overnight or weekend visit to the Granby Zoo, the Le St-Christophe Hotel and Spa is nice, and is perhaps the best place to stay in town. Situated on a beautiful lake with a fantastic circumferential bike/walking path, the property boasts a welcome respite to the surrounding balconied condos complete with half clad elderly gentlemen overlooking the parking lot.
The antique architecture and amply decorated lobby welcomes the weary Zoo-goer who seeks to escape the neighboring repeat of strip malls and chain fast-food joints. The hotel restaurant provides a decent French-themed Mediterranean cuisine, although the barkeep, armed with tasty and satisfying liquid concoctions and soporifics, serves up a true (but skimpy) refreshment.
The rooms are simple and clean, although the water-damaged, bumped up carpet and the in-wall unit air conditioner smacks more of a three star accommodation than the four stars it earns by reviewers more often than not.
The indoor pool is small but refreshing, and the 2 saunas, one of which sits outside and is shaped like a wine-barrel, are nice and relaxing. Outside are a series of small therapeutic pools complete with water features and fountains.
Overall, it is a nice place to stay with other adventures in mind.
