We arrived here early afternoon and Charmaine wasn't in the least put out and provided us with hot drinks and apple crumble while we sat on her front porch until our room was ready. We had booked the Mulberry room but Charmaine had decided to upgrade us to the apartment which takes up the top floor of the house so we had a very spacious suite. This comprised a large lounge and dining area, kitchen, bathroom, balcony plus one double and one twin bedroom. the B & B has off road parking for all guests and is situated on a pleasant residential street. Charmaine's breakfasts offered something for everyone and there was plenty of it. It was all served at the very large and elegant dining table downstairs. Both Charmaine and George are very hospitable hosts. The B & B is within very easy walking distance of Bank Street where there is an exceedingly frequent bus service to downtown Ottawa. You can purchase bus tickets at the nearby grocery store. We took advantage of this and left our car on the B & B parking lot for the duration of our stay.
