I stayed in Rideau Inn for 3 nights, I was staying in the Ontario room with shared bathroom facilities. The room was very nice, pleasantly designed and with a great bed. The only thing is that it got quite hot in my room, even with the A/C on (and it wasn't even that warm outside) I think this is in... More

I loved the antiques, the old wood floors, baseboards, trim, scrolled ceilings, chandeliers - a house with so much character. My room was perfect. I didn't like the tiny shower room on my floor so I used the one on another floor. The washrooms were clean. They let me remove the air freshener due to my asthma. The only thing... More

We were visiting nearby family during Winterlude. Our room with a private bathroom was very nicely appointed, had a very comfortable bed and was at a very cozy temperature. For summer use, I did not see any air-conditioning. The breakfast was a very plentiful cold buffet, with a wonderful assortment of fresh breads to toast, lots of jams, great muffins,... More

Following several local B&Bs actively going out of their way to be inflexible on check-in due to tight timelines Laura went out of her way to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Breakfast is simple but plentiful. Access to Elgin St with its bars & restaurants is very easy. Room was clean and though fully booked the B&B was... More

Contrary to Geoff's experience, I had a very comfortable stay in the New Brunswick room, one of the rooms with a private bath for 4 nights while visiting friends who lived a few doors away. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioner did its job and wasn't noiser than any other window unit.... More

In order to keep business expenses down while I traveled to Ottawa I explored the option of a B&B with my business associate. My associate booked us into two rooms at the Rideau Inn B&B for June 2013. I travel a lot and have stayed at many hotels, motels, and B&Bs. The Rideau Inn has to have been one of... More

This is an older B and B that is a great location. It's a 10 minute walk to Parliment and the byward market. It is steps from Elgin street where there are tons of restaurants. It was comfortable with large sized rooms. It is a charming old house with lots of character. Great spot great stay

Very good location, clean and cosy place, breakfast was provided to us, although we were checking out too early for breakfast time (around 6 am). We visites Ottawa in October, so it was low season and it was very quiet in the house - actually we were told that there were the two of us and one guest only. Shared... More

Loved being walking distance from Elgin street, which had a lot of good restaurants & pubs. Wonderful old house with a very nice common room. Our room had a private half bath, and everything was clean and comfortable. Couple of drawbacks--shared shower (had to wait) and continental breakfast.

I stayed at Rideau Inn for approximately 2 months earlier this year (Jan-Feb), and it was a real "home away from home". Location was perfect, steps away from Elgin street in the city core, and walking distance to transit, great restaurants and shopping. Proximity to transit was important as I was commuting on a daily basis to the western part... More
