Hotel Spa Watel

Spa Watel Hotel is the only hotel at 4 stars of the Laurentian charming relaxing hotel.

Our History, Hotel Spa Watel, the history


The hotel bears proudly its name in memory of Paul Watel, a French personality whom stayed for many years, half-year in Ste-Agathe-des-Monts, the other half-year in Paris.  He got married with Fleurange Nantel and became the brother-in-law of Athanase David; Mr David has been deputy for 25 years and afterward, nominated senator. At its beginning, in 1989, the property was known as Auberge Watel.  This was a family bungalow owned by the Streiker which has been converted into an inn.


The opening


Since its opening, it evolves constantly with the addition of 10 luxurious rooms, meeting rooms, elevator, outdoor games, terraces, two pools, eight Jacuzzis, cold bath, two saunas and four spa treatment rooms.  With all these services, the owners decided, in 2010, to change the property’s name to better reflect its importance; that’s why Auberge Watel became Hotel Spa Watel.


In 2011, the Corporation de l’industrie touristique du Québec has renewed the classification certificate of the hotel by adding a star; now, Hotel Spa Watel is classified a 4-star hotel due to all the investments done. Aware of its impact on the environment, Hotel Spa Watel has decidedly gone green and has earned 4 green keys from Green Key, the Canadian environmental evaluation program. Lise and Claude Fleurent are the Hotel Spa Watel founders; they still own the hotel and are always happy to welcome their guests.



We are the smallest 4 star hotel in Quebec offering many services; in addition our Spas are an accommodation only for our residents. So we are offering s saunas, dry steam, shower massage, 6 interior and exterior spas, indoor and outdoor swimming pools (summer) and two massage rooms and body treatments.

We have recently changed the Restaurant UNO dining menu. We now offer fondue dinner, a relaxing meal for a peaceful evening in good company.

Here’s some information if you want to know more about our hotel, its history, our partners and the Hotel awards.


Information concerning the classification of a hotel


The classification of a hotel establishment is carried out by the C.I.T.Q. (Tourism Industry Corporation of Quebec). The 4-star classification of the Hotel Spa Watel is calculated according to the average of services and criteria obtained, namely:


  • Room 40%
  • Bathroom 20%
  • Food services 13.5%
  • Domestic services and facilities 13.5%
  • Exterior of the building and on-site activities 13%


The total points obtained on these five rating criterias allowed us to reach a 4-star classification, while having three types of rooms, namely, six classic, fifteen superior and ten suites. Finally, an important aspect of this exercise is the general state of these classified elements. The upkeep and maintenance of elements in each of these elements is an integral part of the assessment. The rating of the general condition corresponds to 22% of the total evaluation of a hotel.
