Australis perfectly combines excellent service, location and great atmosphere. We enjoyed tasty and healthy breakfasts while chatting with the owners and other travelers. Nice and kind people all around. We had lunch and dinner in a restaurant that gave us the 10% discount just because we stayed at Australis. Also, the owners gently upgraded our room and put us in...

We returned to Australis because of the great location and friendly hosts. This time we stayed in the upper room with private bath. It was a real treat and even includes a small reading room with desk. The bathroom on this floor is lovely and spacious. We enjoyed hearing of the travels of Carol, our host, and Brian again outdid... More

Excellent location near market and just a couple blocks from the university. Visiting my son at University of Ottawa, this is a great place to stay. Room was clean and cozy. Close to shared washroom (single toilet room is quite small) and separate shower/bath is nice for not delaying other guests. Shower was clean. Another larger 2-piece bathroom available on... More

My first and only experience with Canadian B&B's, Australis Guest House holds its own compared to its European counterparts. Located in a quiet and peaceful area, but still close to the city center, it a great place to stay for a few nights. The owners are very kind and honest people, the rooms and house itself have what one would... More

Stayed here for four nights while visiting the University of Ottawa (a 15-20 min walk away). The location is great - close to the University and relatively close (30 min walk) from the city centre (Rideau St) and in a very leafy suburb. Brian and Carol were superb hosts. The room had a comfortable bed, a desk, good storage space... More

I was visiting the University of Ottawa over four days and the location of the Australis guest house was perfect, ten minutes walk if that. Nice neighbourhood, safe streets, close to the river and the park that runs alongside. It was a good half hour on foot to a shopping strip, and cafes, but I enjoyed the walking and visited... More

This was our first trip to Ottawa and we had a wonderful time. We highly recommend the Australis Guest House and we would definitely stay here again. When we arrived Brian was very helpful with answering all of our questions and had some very good touring tips. Carol served a terrific hot breakfast that our whole family said was "AMAZING"!

First, Carol and Brian are so nice - they helped us in so many ways, with buses, museums, etc. Second, they serve the best breakfast anywhere. Also, our room had a covered balcony which we took full advantage of. We had bikes and they helped us with storage for those. Finally Australisis within walking distance of everything.

The Australis Guesthouse, especially its owners, is AMAZING. They are great, firstly by making sure that you have a good stay and get to visit Ottawa and secondly by going above and beyond in making sure your entire trip runs well, from buses and coaches to the more technical issues. I had a fantastic stay and service before and after... More
