This is THE best hosting experience I've ever had in my life, even compared to 5-star hotels. We stayed in the green room, that is exactly as in the picture, with a nice private bathroom. Actually, towels and sheets are better than the ones I've at home, there are cookies on the table outside of the room and the overall... More

The house itself is on a quiet street. Lovely home. Quiet, peaceful. The rooms are spacious, very clean, with great daylight and air conditioning. Free Wifi... More

The pictures do not give this place justice. This small and intimate B&B had beautiful decor, artwork and details. Cynthia was very warm and friendly, she even accommodated us for an early breakfast at 7:30 since we had a work shop to attend.The bed was very comfortable and we had a great sleep. The place was spotless and well kept.... More

We stayed here for a night at the start of August. Cynthia was baking cookies on our arrival which were tasty! The room was very tidy & comfortable & we had our own bathroom across the corridor. We slept well & enjoyed a nice breakfast the next morning cooked by Cynthia. The B&B is around a 30 minute walk from... More

Fabulous accommodation, great room. Cynthia & Paul were great hosts. We're not Canadian & Cynthia said as it was Canada Day to dress in red & white if we had anything in our luggage. I managed white shorts with a red t-shirt, Cynthia gave us all badges to wear for the day. It was an amazing day walking into the... More

This is a beautiful place to stay, you feel really at home, but very well looked after, too. Lovely touches like the free soft drinks and home made cookies, and the breakfast was beautiful. Cynthia also gave us great advice on a route to Quebec City, avoiding Montreal which was greatly appreciated. Fantastic value for money, and I would definitely... More

Just got back yesterday and the reviews were right! Spotless accomodations, helpful but not in any way intrusive owners (Cynthia and Paul) excellent breakfast and refreshments are all in store. It's quiet and welcoming, its easy to navigate to the Center of town from here on foot (about 2 km) but quick by car, taxi or bike, yet you sleep... More

It is hard to find kindhearted people but Cynthia, the manager of this B&B is one of them. Very warm welcome in a family friendly house with a deligtful breakfast is waht we got in Ottawa. Nice, clean (should say spotles) room with complementary drinks and comfortable bed. Walking distance to Parlament house and War Memorial Museum. Car park included.... More

Never really wanting to stay in a city this B&B had a lovely welcoming feel and great facilities. We walked into and back to the main centre and loved the markets. Our room overooked the back garden and we loved seeing the squirrels flit along the tree branches. Our host did offer us bus tickets but we love to walk.... More

My fiancé and I stay for two nights in October and loved it! Breakfast was served with the elegance of an evening meal, complete with candles! The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the linens were so lovely that we found the label and then went looking for them in the shops. It's a short walk to all of the tourist... More
