Australis is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood not far from the lively Bymarket area downtown. The owners, Brian and Carol, offer a charming accommodation and many good tips on what to do and what to see in Ottawa. During my stay of three nights I cycled along the excellent bicycle paths in and around Ottawa and Gatineau, visited... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed my stay. Carol and Brian are great hosts and were really helpful in terms of suggesting things to see and places to go in the city. The surrounding neighbourhood is quiet and the pub round the corner is a good spot for dinner and drinks. My bed was comfortable... More

A very attractive, well maintained old house with many friendly touches and good solid fittings. Close to all the attractions of Ottawa. Great home-made breakfast and two friendly hosts. As Australians we felt very much at home.

My wife and myself stayed for one week with Carol and Brian. We are new immigrants and loved to stay this first week at their B&B. Their accomodation is very close to the By-market, Parliament Hill, 2 minimum from great bicycle/walking paths and only 20 minutes for Gatineau Park. So as new immigrants we had lots of questions. Our guests... More

We stayed here for a couple nights while visiting Ottawa for the Canada day celebrations. It's a very nice and tidy home on a quiet street. It's a couple kilometers from downtown but a fairly easy walk during the summer. The hosts were very kind and friendly. The breakfast was good and they even accommodated our special dietary requirements. We... More

I stayed at the Australis recently for Canada Day having chosen it based on TA reviews and I was so impressed! I'll definitely be staying here again for my next Ottawa trip and have recommended it to family already. Breakfasts were homemade and delicious with a wide variety of offerings. The room I had was bright and airy and I... More

Stayed here last year with my boyfriend while we were attending the Ottawa International Animation festival. It was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and it was perfect. Brian made delicious meals every morning, and it was fun getting to meet the other guests at the breakfast table. We didn't get to meet Mrs. Waters, but she... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Australis Guest House. We felt comfortable and cozy. We were welcomed and had a wonderful breakfast!!! We will be booking our stay again next year for the Ottawa Tamarack Marathon and will stay again at the Australis.

To be fair, I haven't stayed in any other B&Bs in Ottawa, but after my stay here I don't need to! I loved everything about my stay at Australis, from the welcoming note to the clean and comfortable environment to the warm and welcoming hosts. I stayed here for two nights with my mother thanks to a recommendation from family... More

Stayed 3 nights in a lovely clean room with a balcony. Enjoyed good breakfasts. Carol was a wonderful hostess. Found the bathroom a bit small. Would have liked a TV for my husband to watch his sports. Would stay again.
