We visit Ottawa quite often as our daughter attends school there, and so when we discovered Ashbury House, we knew we had hit the jackpot! We are always welcomed like family, no matter how long it has been: my recent visit was the first in well over a year. Charmaine and George make you feel at home the minute you step in: they have lots of travel experience so they are a natural choice for anyone from out of town, even out of country. We have met people from every continent at breakfast, so the conversation is always lively! Speaking of breakfast: it is always generous and delicious. And they are very flexible with dietary needs. On my last visit one of the guests needed to avoid gluten due to health, and that was accommodated with ease.
Ashbury's location in the Glebe is a definite plus: the area is full of great restaurants and shopping, and very close to Carleton Campus. On my recent weekend I hardly used the car at all as everything I needed was in walking or short bus distance.
I highly recommend this B and B and will keep returning until they stop running it.!

I think you go beyond the exceptional in your hospitality and I know this is the rule and I was not an exception because the cab driver asked me about my stay. When I responded with superlatives, he told me it was the same with every fare he picked up there." Joan – California ... more less
