We had a fantastic experience staying at Ashbury House. George and Charmaine, the owners, were just lovely, and they did everything they could to be helpful and accommodating. The house itself is beautiful: rooms and common areas are tastefully decorated with period furnishings, but the B & B is well maintained and fully updated. The breakfast was fantastic, and Charmaine's... More

You could not have more thoughtful and kind hosts. Charmaine is such a sweet and friendly person and George is a great guy. We loved the clean rooms with very comfortable beds, a nice new TV, bar fridge and extremely fast wifi. My sister and I stayed in the Magnolia Suite. We each had our our bedroom and shared a...

These warm and inviting hosts operate a charming B&B in the beautiful trendy Glebe neighborhood of Ottawa. Each room is unique and decorated with period furnishings. The location is super for a leisurely walk along Banks Street for shops and restaurants, or one can tour Elgin St and Ottawa city center with a 10 min drive. The breakfasts are delicious... More

I stumbled across Ashbury House when looking for a place to stay in Ottawa. Having never stayed at a B&B before, I didn't have any expectations going in, but every review I'd read said this place was wonderful. I was by no means disappointed. The house itself is beautiful and impeccably decorated. Charmaine and George are gracious and welcoming hosts,... More

It felt like visiting old friends, even though it was our first visit. This is an older home, beautifully maintained, in a prime area of Ottawa. But allowances have to be made for smaller doorways and smaller rooms. Ventilation in our room lacked a bit; the windows didn't open and the A/C was too loud to run at night. But... More

We did not want a Corporate Suite experience and made a great choice here. Wonderful hospitality with our room having all facilities. Its an historic home with choices of rooms so do enquire -and book early! We were lucky to get in. Breakfast -was always fabulous. The guest at Breakfast were all interesting and we had many conversations with intelligent... More

I feel very bad about writing this review after reading all of the others. My husband and I spent two nights as the Ashbury House B & B. This was our first experience staying at a B & B and we will not likely do it again. My first impression upon arrival was disappointing. I found the entrance and porch... More

George N, Owner at Ashbury House B&B, responded to this review

We’re not perfect. We obviously didn’t meet this guest’s expectations. But perhaps her mindset influenced her review. She did not have a good morning. It was Mother’s day. She was ready for her son to pick her up and go out for breakfast. Then her son called to say someone broke into his car at his home and stole his... More

We made our first stay at Ashbury House in November and consider it the first of what we hope will be many many stays at this wonderful establishment. We were met at the door by Charmaine, who promptly offered us warm apple pie and hot tea. The next morning, we met George, who is every bit as charming as Charmaine.... More

The owners of this charming historic house are so friendly and hospitable that every guest is made to feel right at home. The location is great, in a quiet, lovely neighbourhood that has easy access to the downtown area and attractions. Breakfast is fantastic and the ambiance around the table is quite engaging.

We stayed 3 nights at the Ashbury House in the top floor apartment and were delighted with our stay. This was perfect for a couple that wants a lot of room or a family. The other folks we met also seemed delighted with their accommodations. Charmaine and George were absolutely wonderful to meet which really enhanced our visit as did... More
