My wife and I stayed here for two nights as part of a trip to see the U.S. Women's soccer team in the quarterfinals. We picked the Rideau for a combination of price and proximity to the soccer stadium as well as sightseeing and restaurants. The location couldn't be beat. The Rideau is on a quiet side street but just...

We rented the whole basement (2 rooms + living room with a sleeper sofa) for a bachelor night in Ottawa. The place was comfortable and all equipped to cook some food. The B&B was very well located near several restaurants and bars, that was the main advantage. We had a car and we were able to park it nearby.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night this past weekend while attending a wedding in Ottawa. When I arrived, the host - Lucy - was very welcoming and showed me around the building. She was incredibly nice and easy going, ensuring I had everything I needed. The room that we rented - the Alberta - was also very...

The location of this B&B is perfect. It is a 15 minute walk to nearly every attraction Ottawa has to offer. There are loads of restaurants within walking distance also. Parking is limited, so be prepared for that. Lucie, the B&B Manager, was just lovely and warmly welcomed us and acquainted us with the property. The room was nice, and...

The host was very hospitable. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There was a wide variety of choices for breakfast. We had a wonderful time staying at the Rideau Inn! We stayed in the basement. The stairs are very narrow so I wouldn't recommend a basement room for anyone with mobility challenges.

Perfect location! Just a 15 minute walk to the Rideau Centre and the Byward Market. Very close to Elgin Street and many great restaurants. Parking is included if you reserve and park in the back or free parking on the street near the B&B. We were warmly greeted and given a tour of the home. We stayed in the Saskatchewan...

We have stayed her a few times on our trips to Ottawa visiting family. The staff is always friendly.... night and day staff. Breakfast is meager, but we don't expect a full course meal! Fresh coffee always on and the muffins were superb! Great location close to major traffic arteries. A taste of 'country' in the city.

I needed a room for a night and just walked to the Rideau Inn, previously having read about it on tripadvisor. It's about a 10min walk from downtown and about 15min walk into the other direction to get to the Greyhound bus station. The owner Lucy was very accommodating and let me check in early and without a previous reservation...

We traveled to Ottawa to skate on the Rideau Canal. This bed and breakfast was about three blocks from the Concord entry site and warming hut on the skateway. The location was ideal. It was also half a block from the great restaurants on Elgin street. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The Inn was clean and charming. Lucie tries...

A very nice charming 100yr old house. Lucy, the owner is very nice and very helpful. She made our stay quite pleasant. Parking is an issue for this area of Ottawa. So I recommend reserving the $9 parking per day when you book. There are carparks nearby but for $12-30 per day and a short walk. Our room was tastefully...
