This was my second enjoyable stay at King Edward B&B. The host Richard is very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable and his dog, Sunny, is a delight. Breakfast offerings were healthy and delicious. It is a short walk to downtown, some museums and parliament hill. Public transportation is available nearby, too. I intend to return soon.

We loved staying at Richard's place. The location is great. Even better is the place itself. It is beautifully decorated and very clean. Richard is the best host. He gives great info about the area and offers good suggestions to questions. He is very relaxed, which makes at nice atmosphere. Breakfast is great. And then there is Sunny the Wonder... More

Great B&B in downtown Ottawa! My husband & I stayed with Richard & Sunny for a week the middle of June. We had enjoyed our visit so much 2 years ago we returned. Richard (and Sunny) are extremely welcoming hosts. Richard is a wealth of knowledge about Ottawa - places to see, how to get to them etc. The location... More

I had to go to Ottawa to get a visa but also wanted to tour a bit since it's been over 10 years since I've been there. Therefore, this B&B was the perfect place to stay because it was close to good sites and the government offices and embassy that I had to go to. The Tower room was spacious... More

I recently stayed the Ottawa King Edward bed and breakfast. The host Rich was kind, helpful, and professional. The accompanying host, Sunny, added four-legged friendliness and a sense of home matching the calm and tranquil environment. Rich went out of his way to meet the accommodation needs of myself and teen son at no extra cost. He was a wealth... More

Great location. We parked our car, and did not use it for our entire stay. We walked all over Ottawa. Richard gave us an excellent orientation to the city and had good suggestions as to what to see and where it was located. Our bed was comfortable. We had a family emergency while we were there, and our host was... More

I just spent two nights at the Auberge King Edward and have only good things to say about this B&B. The front garden was beautiful with its' massive display of spring tulips. As you enter the B&B your attention is immediately drawn to its' old world charm and character. I was very impressed with the subtle yet very appealing nuances... More

Great host, Gracious and attentive. Interesting house with eclectic art and book selection. Interesting conversations. Richard treats you well. The bird quieted down at night. Relatively quiet neighborhood. Great location! I felt like I was in a posh B&B for a reasonable price and thoroughly enjoyed being there. Very nice breakfast. Basically, nothing bad to say, and lots of nice... More

A beautifully restored Victorian house very close to downtown but not surrounded by highrises. The Tower Room is really a suite, where I felt totally at home for my week-long stay. Tastefully decorated and so comfortable, and you gotta love those soundproof windows; you'd never know you were on a fairly busy street. Richard was the perfect host.

Stayed in the king edward for 3 nights. A clean, comfortable and warm place, with a great location close to the university and to the city center. Very generous and tasty breakfast. Owner is hospitable and extremely helpful. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Ottawa.
