I was in this area of Ottawa recently taking a course for a week. OMGosh what a treat! Yes, an old building BUT very comfortable and absolutely clean. I am a single woman. I felt totally safe and loved the neighbourhood and proximity to restaurants, shopping, transit and sites. Lucie is the absolute best! Goes out of her way to... More

The B&B is close to the city centre, walking distance. 3 Parking spaces are available behind the house. The Manager of the b&b was very friendly. The room was clean and we felt comfortable. The breakfast was more then enough, at all a good and practical B&B to visit ottawa.

We really enjoyed the day at Rideau Inn. The Manager welcomed us warmely and the room was very comfortable and clean. I even got another blanket for the bed due to my allergy. The city can be reached by foot in 15 minutes.

Located in the heart of Ottawa, within walking distance of most places of interest, this is a pleasant and calm place to stay. Lucie, the Manager, was invariably helpful, charming and very welcoming. We stayed in the New Brunswick room which had its own adjoining bathroom and were very pleased with all the facilities, bearing in mind that this is... More

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
