Bonne Entente’s Star Shines on the International Stage

23 February 2017

Yesterday, Forbes Travel Guide released their rankings for 2017, and once again this year, the excellent service provided by the Hôtel Bonne Entente (BE) was recognised with the awarding of the prestigious ranking of 4 stars.

Since 1958, Forbes Travel Guide has provided the travel industry with detailed rankings and appreciations of hotels, restaurants and spas. There are more than 162 destinations in 44 countries which were ranked in 2017, and Le Bonne Entente is proud to be once again part of these rankings.

“In a digital environment characterised by confusion and an overabundance of information, Forbes Travel Guide is a reliable source of information for clients that want to make the right travel decisions”, declared Gerard J. Inzerillo, general manager of Forbes Travel Guide. “Starred establishments this year have met an impeccable standard of excellence for hospitality by being loyal to our mission of positively contributing to the international tourism industry as well as individual hotel experiences”, added Mr. Inzerillo. “We are proud to congratulate all the establishments that have shown their commitment to their clients and employees.”

“With our 5 star ratings attributed by the Corporation de l’IndustrieTouristique du Québec (CITQ), and our 4 AAA diamonds, Forbes Travel Guide has confirmed that Le Bonne Entente is a prestigious hotel”, noted Alain April, co-owner and general manager of the hotel.

Recognised as being a complete destination, Le Bonne Entente offers its clients an experience that is different, personalised, and above all authentic. Since it opened, the BE has consolidated its strengths and improved its quality standards while remaining simple, welcoming and friendly. “Our employees are the soul of BE and the direct reflection of our high standards. Yes, we have an incredible product, but what makes us stand out is our quality of service”, added Mr. April.

“To find ones’ self in the same list as Le Fouquet in Paris, the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore or the St. Regis in New York makes us very proud, and I am certain that our fellow Quebec establishments that were ranked (Quintessence, St-James and St-Antoine) are saying the same thing today. On that note, I would like to personally congratulate them,” concluded Alain April.
