We booked this as part of our touring through Canada. I would have easily given a higher rating, if not for the rooms. I believe that this property appeals probably more for people who are looking for a quaint homey feel. That said the owners and staff do a wonderful job of making you both welcome and comfortable so this... More

We loved this Inn! A short walk to Parliament Hill, the Locks and the War Museum. A bit farther, but not much, to the Byward Market with shops and several restaurants. Our room was on the first floor, charming and very adequate. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Fresh muffins and cold offerings also. The staff was friendly, helpful... More

Nice to stay in a house with a bit of history. Our standard room was very small, but cheap at the last minute. Good location, clean, great breakfast made to order. Public parking on Albert street is free on evening and weekends; no need to pay for a parking spot. Would come back.

I recently stayed 2 nights here and found it to be an excellent choice for the lone traveller. Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything you might want to see downtown is within walking distance. Parking is available on site. Room was clean and everything in it was in working order. Breakfast included hot and cold choices and was delicious. I... More

From the welcoming reception through a great night's sleep to a truly delicious hot breakfast we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend overnight at the Albert House Inn. A short walk to Parliament Hill, across the street from a small 24-hour grocery store, with parking on-site, and a living room with newspapers and refreshments, we had all we needed for a pleasant...

We were very pleased with our stay at Albert Inn. Right from the check-in to the check-out, the staff were so helpful. . .even helping us to carry our suitcases upstairs and down. The rooms were clean and attractive. We appreciated the quiet, relaxing atmosphere. We were able to walk easily to the Parliament building and Byward Market. The breakfast... More

I have been to Ottawa for business many many times in the past decade. I usually stay at a larger hotel on the East side of the city, but decided to try the Albert House owing to price and wanted to do something different. I am glad I did. The room was pleasantly appointed, the Internet access worked well and... More

We appreciate your comments about our parking situation (yes it is a little tight) but we do manage to accommodate everyone's requirements as you pointed out. The... More

I have spent many nights in charming B&Bs and aimed for same when I decided to stay at Albert House rather than a large hotel. With the rave reviews from industry watchdogs and travellers, I really expected more of my stay here. There are some very nice things about this place and some less so. The hospitality--the staff really were... More

My wife booked Albert House Inn king size bed with jacuzzi tub for our anniversary. Imagine my surprise to hear the phone ringing at 11:35 PM to be to told to "Tone it down in there" as there had been complaints about the noise from other guests. I inquired "The hot tub?" To which he responded "Yes". The location is... More

Dear "Lloydminster Cowboy", We are sorry you felt that your anniversary celebration was somewhat curtailed by our asking you to "tone it down". The previous two nights that you enjoyed your jacuzzi were not a problem but the last evening, we did receive a complaint from a guest as the television was very loud and could be heard in the...
