Carol and Brian are the most pleasant of hosts. Carol is Australian and luckily married to Brian, a Brit a true Brit, a Londoner. They really are a lovely couple and into must charitable works. Brian was honoured with a Rotary Club award in response to his good works while Carol is tireless in this respect also. Breakfast is communal... More

We stayed 2 nights at Australis, the hosts are very helpful and enjoyable. The breakfast was homemade and very good; the room was cozy and clean with also a balcony. Australis is well located and at walking distance from main point of interest. In addition private parking is also available. We also enjoyed breakfast conversations with our hosts and the... More

I stayed for 3 nights in May. Lovely location, and had a nice run around the Rideau River loop. Very much enjoyed the breakfast conversation with hosts, who have certainly seen the world, and had tasty dinners at the neighbourhood pub around the corner. I look forward to a return visit.

Brian and Carol Waters were wonderful hosts, who really made our stay with them enjoyable. The food was excellent and accomodations beautifully decorated and well cared for. Australis guest house is walking distance to parliment hill and downtown attractions, with a good pub around the corner. We stayed for three days. Breakfast was the best time, we enjoyed excellent food,... More

The hosts immediately made us feel welcome upon our arrival. The home is clean and comfortable. We appreciated having the entire third floor with our own bathroom. We loved the breakfasts with fresh baked goods and juice. The mushroom and herb omlette was delious.

Stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. Owners were kind and knowledgeable, would highly recommend. Lots of nearby restaurants and relatively short walk downtown (even shorter to the University. Room was a good size, building was clean and well-maintained. Great alternative to downtown hotels.

This lovely home a short distance from the canal leading into downtown, and on a quiet street in the university district was our "home" in Ottawa for two nights. The experience for us was as if we were staying with friends rather then renting a room. We are a mature age couple cycling from Vancouver to St Johns and we... More

Australis is a nice bed and breakfast in Ottawa, in a good location within walking distance of downtown. The owners are knowledgeable about the city, and the breakfast is very good; there's also free parking around the back if you book. Unfortunately on our first night we were woken repeatedly by a party on the street which meant we couldn't... More

I enjoyed the comfortable and welcoming room, the great range of books on the shelves, the little balcony off my room overlooking a quiet residential street, and especially sitting around a wonderful breakfast table talking with other guests!

We stayed at the Australis Guest House during the Ottawa Race weekend and had an amazing, warm, and welcoming stay. Situated in the quiet neighborhood of Sandy Hill, the guest house was perfectly located 15 minutes walk away from the Ottawa city centre, and guests even benefit from a 10% discount at the local bar and grill (flawless food!).
