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.

We stayed two nights on the top floor and we really liked everything, the room, the breakfast and the location. Mr. and Mrs Waters were excellent hosts. We will recommend this Bed and breakfast to everybody that travels to Ottawa.

We booked the top floor bedroom with private bathroom for 3 nights, mainly because we liked the location and the reviews were very good. Everything seemed nice until we went to bed the first night. The bed was sagging badly and we were rolling to the centre. Each time one of us moved, the bed squeaked terribly, so we kept... More

Mr. Waters is really really kind and helpful, as well as Mrs. Waters. They helped us to plan our trip and suggested the best route to those beauty spots in Ottawa. The breakfast was excellent and delicious with various choices. Fresh fruits and orange juice were provided everyday. The homemade waffles are amazing! Best bed & breakfast ever!
