My husband & I have stayed at the Australis Guest House 2 years in a row. We participate in the Tamarack Race Weekend. Carol & Brian are amazing hosts, breakfast is fabulous. We truly enjoy the top floor private area with our own bathroom. It is comfortable and in walking distance from the festivities of the race weekend.

I felt like local. Location is in the neighborhood, not isolated as starred hotels. You feel like at home. Clean and cosy. Brian and Carol are very kind. Breakfast was very good. The only thing that might unplease you is after 22.30 no use of bathroom (toilet is separated). Even before my arrival Brian started to inform me about travel... More

My daughter and I stayed at Australis Guest House for 5 days. Breakfast was great and the hosts (Brian and Carol) made it a point to ask us what kind of breakfast we prefer. The only concern we had was that the breakfast time was only from 8 - 9 am although they accommodated our first day breakfast up to... More

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"!
