The Gare du Palais functions as a train station and a bus terminal, but it is so much more than that. It is a stunning example of 1910 French Chateau style architecture and is just as impressive a structure as the Chateau Frontenac in style....More

First impression was poor, because initially there were no taxis. Then staff were kind enough to tell us they had phoned for more ! Good customer service. Good signage. Not the busiest station. OK.
