Unfortunately, we were not happy with the accommodation and our experience mirrors that of others in 2018. We had to remind the host to arrange a cleaner after turning up an hour and a half early to check in and finding full ash tray, garbage and used sheets before us. We cut our stay short by a night as couldn’t face another night in this place. I would urge the owner to spend a night here then they would easily see the problems. Beds like trampolines, damp, holes in walls and doors, dust and paper-thin ceiling makes for an unpleasant stay.

Appartement éloigné du centre ville dans un quartier très calme. Salle de bains un peu vieillotte mais fonctionnelle. Séjour agréable, ligne de bus à proximité, voisins très discrets.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 4 nights. Location was perfect for us. Lots of space for 6 and kitchen facilities are fabulously convenient. Much more space than we would have found at any hotel. Highly recommended for a comfortable, quiet visit.

Back in October of 2017 our booking was excepted and paid in full. We thought it was all good to go. After we left Niagara and were on out way to the Little Jewel in Central Ottawa we got a call from someone saying there was a problem with the system and we had no place to stay. I called westhaven B and was told yes that was right. But we would get a call from someone to help us find a place. Remember we had booked last year and paid in full. A woman said she was helping out westhaven b find us a place. And he would pick up the difference in cost to help us out. As we drove into Ottawa we were given an address for a one night stay and the next day would get a call with an address for our other place to stay. And westhaven b would pick up the difference in price. I keep telling you this about him picking up the price so you understand he did nothing about picking up the extra cost. Well our one night was great. A very lovely place, The next place for 3 nights was worse then a DOG HOUSE. You would have not put your dog in this place. There were no curtains on the windows, the beds were so old they were dirty. There was an inch of dirt under the beds. The bath was rusty and dirty. So you can understand why we are so upset. We called westhaven B again and said we were not going to stay there and wanted a full refund. Not only did we not get a full refund. He did not pick up the difference for the one night stay. After many calls to Trip Advisor and email going back and forward we found out TA had sent him his money and we had to get westhaven b to refund us. He asked us to fill in a note saying we were satisfied with our stay and he would send out money. I refused to do this so he with held our money for 5 weeks. The long and short of this story is that he (westhaven b) is not a very nice person to deal with.

We would like to clarify certain points that were erroneously mentioned in this review. When we realized that there had been a system glitch and a double booking happened, we communicated to the guest that we would refund their booking in total and that they were free to pursue other avenues on their own. The guest declined this option and requested our help. Since it was last minute and a very busy weekend here in Ottawa with most occupancy levels at their maximum, we had a hard time tracking down an alternative. We did pay in fact the difference for the first night stay for the guest since the other accomodation was more expensive than ours. Not the whole night’s stay but the difference. Since the guest wasn’t satisfied with the second location, we did promise the refund of the unused portion. The guest requested an e-transfer but we preferred the refund to go through the Trip Advisor platform so it would be official. We asked the guest to request the refund through the platform so that it would be recorded. The guest refused to do so. We contacted Trip Advisor on our own and started the process. We did not ask for a review at any time from the guest. Once Trip Advisor refunded it in the system then we refunded the guest by means of etransfer for the unused portion as promised. We are very sorry about any misunderstanding, we always endeavour to provide excellent service. But at the same time, it is disappointing that the guest wasn’t truthful that they did receive the refund. I have proof that she accepted my etransfer.

We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights, and would recommend it to anyone who wants cheap accommodation in the suburbs of the city. The apartment was clean and bright, with three good sized bedrooms. It is perfect should you have a car, as it provides a designated parking space behind the apartment block for your car. There are a number of options to get into central Ottawa, however we used the number 14 bus, which was only a couple of minutes away from the apartment door, and dropped you off in the city centre.

Nous avions un tournoi de curling et presque tout les clubs sont environ à 15 minutes maximum de la place. Également près de pleins de mico-brasseries et de restaurants.

This is such a dirty place. From the entrance till the inside! Even one of the bed (which is in the middle rm), you can't sleep on. Good thing there are 3 bedrooms. After informing the owner, a lady cleaner came. She was kind and apologetic. However, although she acknowledged that the place is indeed a mess, she still asked us what is it we want to be cleaned. I requested to have it vacuum but she said there's no vacuum on the building. Anyway, she did the thing I asked her to do. When, she left and started to use the kitchen. Kitchen counter is so sticky. Plates and utensils are not washed well. Obviously, we needed to wash the countertop including the plates and utensils we will be using. There are only 2 casseroles for cooking which is just ok and 1 frying pan. The pan is not usable as the teflon is peeled-off. So, we bought our own pan. The floor makes so loud noise when you walk. You can also here the noise of the floor from the other unit/s particularly at night. For sure the owner or at least the caretaker didn't check the condition of the apartment we booked. A bad experience for 3 days!!

We chose this to a mid-range hotel as both more comfortable for four of us and more economical. Three bedrooms, kitchenette and sitting area with dining table. One combined shower room/toilet. One thing to note is squeaky floorboards outside bedrooms - if someone early riser and others not, pretty impossible to sneak about quietly! About 10 minutes away by car from city centre but on a quiet street. Good walking nearby on grounds of experimental farm. Bus into town within 5 minutes walk away. Corner store two minutes walk away, convenient for first day essentials such as milk. Choice of dine-in places (most of which do delivery) within 5 minutes by car, and within 10 minutes is Wellington St West with many eateries, some very fancy. Owner responded promptly to queries including when we were in the apartment. It was good to be able to spread out in the apartment rather than be on top of each other and feel hemmed in as in hotel rooms. We were pleased with our choice and will be happy to rent again.

We had a good time during our trip for beautiful tulip festival at Ottawa because we are lucky to live in the Little Gem in Central Ottawa. The owner is very kind to give us a clear instruction when we moved in. It is a very convenient to the center of Ottawa, Parliament Hill and Buildings and Commissioners park; The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is provided basic kitchen utensils and commonly used seasoning. The shampoo and washing gel are good enough for use although the shower water likes a stream 。 What I want to reminder of you here is to bring your own towels for shower because per person uses one towel during the four nights and I was told that we can wash it at laundry if we need more and also to bring sleep pills if you sleep is poor because the floor makes noise loudly when walking to washroom at night.
