Our stay at The Gilmour Inn was amazing. Richard has created the perfect mix of wonderful service and amenities with a comfortable sense of home. The Inn is decorated with a great mix of collections and antiques. Each room is tastefully decorated with lovely added touches , like a top hat on a table,old typewriter on the desk or a... More

This pace is as awesome as the other reviewers have said, so I don't know what to add. It is in a great location which is walking distance to attractions, shops, and eateries. I am picky about where I stay, but this place surpassed my expectations. It was very clean, and quiet, too, considering how close it is to Bank... More

Wonderful place to stay. Great B&B, Richard is a fantastic and friendly host, very knowledgable. My room was clean, comfortable and so nice to get to every evening. Great location, walking distance to museums, restaurants etc. Very nice breakfast too. Can't wait to visit again.

This B&B is located very near to the 417 and downtown Ottawa. It has 7 rooms. #1 is quite large and spacious. #4 is at the back and opens on to the fire escape. Innkeeper Richard is very experienced, helpful and makes a super breakfast. It could be baked eggs or eggs benedict, or something else. There is parking behind... More

The Gilmour Inn is a BnB located in central Ottawa, easy walking to downtown and Byward Market which we like. It's great not to always be in the car. We were greeted warmly as usual by Richard, the innkeeper. This is the third BnB of his we have stayed in; we just keep following him around Ottawa! He is the... More

Very accommodating of service dog even though the inn is not set up for persons with visual disabilities(narrow stairs, lots of lovely decour- I wish I could have seen the christmas tree better!), the owner still made things as easy as possible for me, and...

My partner and I recently returned from a little get-away to Ottawa, and we stayed at the Gilmour Inn for two nights. We had a great experience, and we particularly enjoyed the decor and ambiance of the Inn - it really felt like "coming home" after a long day. We had a room on the 3rd floor, and although it...

I just got back from my first trip to Ottawa. We stayed for 4 days at The Gilmour Inn. The Inn is conveniently located near everything. It is minutes to the beautiful Ottawa River & Rideau Canal. It is also walking distance to the Byward Market and parliament buildings. The Inn was cozy and our room was AWESOME! It was... More

I was somewhat disappointed. I did not warm to the decor which seemed "period" to the point of not comfortable, convenient or particularly attractive. The room was very small, the carpet not that clean and public areas contained weird stairs and steps that seemed somewhat hazardous. The breakfast was good and it's in a good and very convenient area. So... More

I have been a loyal customer of Richard's for many years. The transition from inn on Somerset to The Gilmour Inn has been seemless (to customers anyways). The quality of the craftmanship and decorations is as implicable as expected. I am more modern in my design; however, the Inn is decorated very tastefully and with the service it feels like... More
