Australis Bed and Breakfast is a clean, quiet, and ideally located place to stay with great hosts and delicious breakfast. The hosts made me feel like I was staying at a good family home. They were very friendly, polite, helpful and warm. The room had all you needed at a great location for an excellent price. If I have to return to Ottawa, I will look to stay at this place again.

I had a wonderful stay at Australis guest house. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a private bathroom and shower down the hall. The breakfast of homemade muffins, yogurt, fruit and eggs was delicious and filling each morning. The location was also perfect for visiting a friend in the Sandy Hill neighborhood.

Brian and Carole were fantastic hosts. I had trouble with my car while I was there and Brian and Carole went the extra mile to help me find an excellent mechanic and make sure I was all set for the long drive home. I will definitely stay at Australis Guest House when I return.

Carol and Brian are great hosts. We had a great time staying with them and having interesting conversations over an abundant breakfast sharing our respective early years spent in Australia. The location is very walkable to downtown but in a very nice residential area. Well worth it to have a "holiday" within a holiday at Australis Bed and Breakfast. Thank you guys. We'll be back.

I've stayed at Australis Guest House on several occasions. My most recent visit was in June 2022 and I was so excited that they were open again. It's like staying in your favourite aunt and uncle's house. You instantly feel at home. Carol and Brian have a wealth of local knowledge, no matter what your interests are. The location is perfect: it's in a quiet neighbourhood near a lovely park and is also in walking distance of ByWard Market and downtown Ottawa.

The breakfasts are amazing! But it's the hosts who make the place so special. Of all the places I've travelled to, this is one of my favourite places to stay. I can't wait for my next visit.

This review is long over due. I stayed at Australis guest house in January 2017. I was looking through my emails and saw my confirmation email and was reminded of what a great time I spent here. I came here with my sisters for a nice needed mini vacation. It was very homey and warm. Brian and Carol were so caring. They even helped me fight a parking ticket that I was pretty worried about. The parking situation is very different in Ottawa. They had such a wonderful energy about them. It was just what I needed.

Wonderful, warm abode, central to downtown Ottawa. A traditional home (there are stairs!), with all those necessary extras we appreciate. Comfy beds, tea making facilities & in room fridges. Generous & interesting hosts! Definitely recommend for those wanting a homey environment at reasonable cost.

We stayed 2 nights at Australis, the hosts are very helpful and enjoyable. The breakfast was homemade and very good; the room was cozy and clean with also a balcony. Australis is well located and at walking distance from main point of interest. In addition private parking is also available. We also enjoyed breakfast conversations with our hosts and the other guests.

Lovely room on the second floor with a small balcony for relaxing in the sunshine. One block from the Rideau River and only a 20 minute walk from Parliament Hill, Byward Market, grocery stores, and shopping malls. Fantastic breakfasts including fresh fruit, hot baked scones/croissants/muffins, made to order eggs and endless tea/coffee/juice. Hosts were very helpful, extremely knowledgeable and loved to share stories about the city and other travel destinations. The only negative was the tiny powder room shared by the three rooms on the second floor (book the third floor room that has its own bathroom if that is a concern). Would definitely recommend!

I stayed for 3 nights in May. Lovely location, and had a nice run around the Rideau River loop. Very much enjoyed the breakfast conversation with hosts, who have certainly seen the world, and had tasty dinners at the neighbourhood pub around the corner. I look forward to a return visit.

We stayed at the Australis Guest House during the Ottawa Race weekend and had an amazing, warm, and welcoming stay. Situated in the quiet neighborhood of Sandy Hill, the guest house was perfectly located 15 minutes walk away from the Ottawa city centre, and guests even benefit from a 10% discount at the local bar and grill (flawless food!). Breakfast in the morning was great, and it was a pleasure getting to know other visitors in the guest house and discuss travel stories with Carol over a lovely breakfast (a choice of waffles or an omelette, and some amazing scones on the side!).
There is no question that our next stay in Ottawa will be spent at the Australis Guest House, we loved it! Thank you again Brian and Carol for your warm hospitality!
