I'd like to point out first that coincidentally all of the positive reviews of this place are done by users who have only ever left one review which raises suspicion. The place has a lingering pungent smell, the beds are uncomfortable, and the bathrooms are in serious need of a refurb. I took expection to the owner asking me to... More

The Sunnyside building was old and decrepit (the outside exterior siding is all "window dressing". I am surprised a fire marshal hasn't condemned the place with just one exit and one 2.5 kg dry chemical fire extinguisher. The narrow stairs to the 2nd floor were steep and nigh on impossible to navigate with a carry-on bag. 3 rooms upstairs with... More

Just minutes from the canal and a healthy breakfast are the positives to this location. Otherwise the rooms were outdated and there was no such thing as sleeping in, especially staying in the Atlantic room if others were having breakfast or utilizing the shared phone. Hostel style location but hotel prices! Would not recommend, sorry.

On the plus side: -good location, reasonably priced -fridge, microwave and dishes/cutlery in common area allowed us to each all dinners in so we saved $$$ -coffee was excellent -hosts prepared us a box breakfast so we could get an early start on departing and miss the heavy AM traffic -bed was comfortable, only because we brought our own pillows...

If you simply don't care about the quality of your accommodations and pest-free meets your standards for 'comfort', then this is the place for you. The owner tends to be a chatterbox, yet is slow at returning calls or responding to requests. We asked for new towels, and he basically said "we do the air dry thing here...." -- new... More

after a 3hr delay at Chicago to get to Ottawa, I finally arrived at 1am at the B&B. Jim monitored the flight and was so kind to check me in at 1am. The breakfast is wonderful (delicious muffins, thanks Inge!) and a great start to a long day of business meetings! If you're active, the Rideau Canal is just a... More

For the price, you can't get any better for business around Carleton university. The owners seem very considerate and honest, and are doing their best to accomodate guests in their own home. The rooms are clean, well equipped with wifi, TV (in the atlantic atleast), and all the required linens. People who are not reviewing the stay well are simply... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Sunnyside near the end of July. Since we were there for a wedding we needed time to get ready and the hosts were more than accommodating in letting us check in extra early into both of our rooms. The place was tidy and clean and was exactly what we needed for a relaxing couple... More

I stayed here roughly a month ago and all I have to say is to avoid this Bed and Breakfast at all costs. The owners are completely disrespectful as I overheard them talk negative things about me after providing "excellent customer service". I stayed at the "Pacific Room" and honestly, the picture is quite deceiving as the basement (yes, basement),... More

I booked two rooms for several nights: one for me and my two teenage daughters, and one for my cousin and her husband. When we arrived the owner swiped my credit card in advance for all the charges. The room for me and my two daughters was in the basement and smelled musty; it was cramped and hardly large enough... More
