Riôtel celebrates 20 years of existence
After operating hotels for several years in the Gaspe Peninsula under different brands,
the Rioux family chooses, in January 1997, to establish the Riôtel Hospitality Group. The
creation of Riôtel along with the establishment of three hotels in strategic locations,
specifically Matane, Percé, and Bonaventure, allows the Rioux family to showcase the
Gaspe Peninsula to the world.
For the past 20 years, Riôtel has constantly increased its capacity and the quality of its
product. In 2003, the group purchases the Bonaventure Hotel in Percé, and renames it
Riôtel Percé. In 2014, the group invests $8M in the renovation and extension of its
Matane location. The project is completed at the end of 2015. The addition of new high-
end rooms, Oblivio Spa, an indoor pool, a trendy restaurant along with new modern
conference rooms propel the Riôtel Matane to new heights.
In 2016-2017, the Riôtel Percé benefits from renovations totaling approximately $2M.
The renovations bring many changes, including a new restaurant, Paqbo, a new exterior
image, the addition of balconies in superior rooms, Oblivio Spa, and considerable
improvements in many of our rooms.
Our team is constantly searching for new ways to improve your comfort and overall
experience. We were amongst the first hoteliers in Quebec to install charging stations
for electric cars and fiber optic internet! Let us know your needs, and we will do
everything we can to meet your expectations and bring you satisfaction.
