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

Stayed a week. The owner is very friendly and wants to help in every way! 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... More

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

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

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

I stayed here for 2 nights this year in January, several of the coldest days of the year. The Inn is beautifully furnished (traditionally), comfortable, and the owner Richard is very welcoming, accommodating, and generous. His breakfasts are great! Because it was one of the coldest weekdays of the year when I arrived, I happened to be the only guest... More

Now on Gilmour Street, previously on Somerset, the Gilmour Inn is a very tastefully refurbished house with excellent amenities. The ambiance is excellent with period decor, fixtures and fittings all done with consistently good taste. The room was warm and comfortable with en suite facilities. Traditional breakfast was prompt and freshly prepared. I highly recommend the Gilmour Inn for your... More

I've stayed at this B & B twice this year. Once in May and again in November. The owner, Richard Brouse makes his guests feel very comfortable and at home. His breakfasts are excellent and if you leave hungry in the morning, it is your own fault. Mr. Brouse just opened this B & B this year and he is... More
