My fiance and I wanted to visit ottawa and found this place last minute. The location was near a skate rental shop, the canal rideau, the nature museum and near plenty of dining options and bars. The house is a heritage home so it's definitely old, but in an authentic way. The check-in process was very efficient and the host was informative and very nice! (Lindsay was her name) our room was clean. The washrooms are shared but kept VERY tidy. The kitchen downstairs was awesome - stocked with breakfast items, coffee, tea, juice, etc. I think that for the money, this is a good deal. Only thing.... the noise from the creaking wood floors. Bring headphones or earbuds and you will be just fine.

The location is great and the inn is charming. But it wasn't very clean. The bed sheets and towels had some faint stains. The breakfast was not so good. Nothing cooked, nothing homemade. Only stuff that's towards the cheaply stuff. The soundproofing in this inn is nonexistent! If you're a light sleeper it's terrible!

This B&B is in a fab location - just off Elgin St with a load of bars and restaurants and close to the Rideau Canal. Lucie, the host, is an extremely pleasant and helpful lady - the room was fine - a bit odd to have the, fairly compact, shower in the bedroom - but it all worked fine - and the serve yourself, continental, breakfast was good.

Stayed 2 nights here. Had room with bathroom in room which is worth it. Paid for parking in back, very tight to get between houses but I have SUV and it fit. Bed was comfortable, room pretty spacious. Everything is clean. Breakfast is self serve. Hard boiled eggs for protein, rest is carbs...toast, muffins, croissants, cereals. There is yogurt and almond milk. Location is walking distance to everything.

We stayed one night at this inn. It is very comfortable. In fact, the mattress on our bed was perfect. The breakfast which is continental is simple but sufficient. The best thing was that at the end of the street is The Manx, our favourite pub anywhere.
