Perfect location with No 16 bus to and from centre around 4-5 minute walk away or you can reach main street near University Campus up the hill in around 10 minutes. Brian and Carol are big travellers themselves and are extremely friendly and welcoming. Tasty breakfast and very clean room, pub and restaurants close by too.

Super friendly hosts that love to make you feel extra welcome. Breakfasts were great, the home made scones were excellent. Brian helped orient me with a map and some tips, and Carol was great to chat with for travelling in general. Good location, we walked maybe 10 minutes to the start of the Rideau Canal's skating area. Pub with great... More

Although the minimum stay for this B&B was 2 nights, due to inclement weather, I had to cancel one of my nights on the last minute. Brian, the host, was very understanding and accommodating of the situation and only charged me for 1 night. Conveniently located, the Australis is walking distance to Byward Market, Rideau Center as well as University... More

Me and my friend had been travelling around Canada from Australia on a 2 yr work visa. We decided to come back to Ottawa which we were previously living, to ice skate the canal in February. We had a great time and didn't realise Carol was Australian until we got there. We should've guessed by the name! Thank you so... More

Brian and Carol were delightful hosts at their B and B. We stayed here three nights enjoying their delicious and filling breakfasts each day. Please note the breakfast times are only from 8:30-9:30. Our quiet, private room and bath were located on the third floor of some very steep and narrow steps. The entire floor was ours alone! The convenient... More

I stayed here for 9 days as part of a lengthy Canada/US trip. It's in a nice residential neighbourhood, with a park just around the corner where I saw some outdoor plays. It took me about 25 minutes to stroll to Parliament Hill from here. My room was at the back of the house next to the shared bathroom and... More
