My husband and I stayed 3 nights in the Pewter Room and liked it very much. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated, as was the house in general. Breakfast every morning was delicious and we could walk easily to anywhere in the city. Christine was also a great host, sharing tips on places to go and things to... More

What a great B&B! If you are staying in Ottawa I highly suggest staying here over a hotel. I spent three nights in the Pewter room and it was very clean and spacious. The breakfast I had each morning was delicious -huge portions, but delicious! Christine is a great host and her dog Apollo is quiet and oh so sweet.... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Pewter Room, just excellent. A nice big bed and comfortable to sleep in. A very quite street and the actual parking is just a 5 minute walk away which is not a problem. Christine creates a wonderful array of breakfasts, far more than us Aussies were used too at home. Their dog Apollo, well... More

We stayed here because of its convenience to down town sites as well as being able to visit a friend by transit. Love the dog, Apollo. Christine and her husband were so friendly and helpful. They have suggestions on their site of places to eat and not all of them are expensive either. She made wonderful breakfasts. The area is... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at this lovely B&B in Ottawa. Christine, the owner, and her husband were extremely accommodating, informative, and provided scrumptious elaborate breakfasts - a different menu each day. She oriented us to the area, and to nearby restaurants and tourist spots, and we enjoyed the friendly conversations with her and some... More

I stayed in the Van Gogh room, quiet and secluded with my own bathroom and a desk as well as a TV. Christine was welcoming and fun as was Apollo, the dog. The food was absolutely out of this world. I had to leave early one morning so Christine packed me a wonderful breakfast to go. It's a wonderful, welcoming... More

A comfortable, modern and cordial environment, convenient to site seeing, just what we were looking for. We had no problems finding the Avalon, and were immediately made to feel at home. At the same time, our room (the Van Gogh) felt very private, and while we had a chance to meet other guests, we felt that we had a nice,... More

We visited for Canada Day. We had 2 nights- one where breakfast was provided, one where she had her day off. But this worked great for us as our flight was early that day anyway. Stayed in smallest room Van Gogh- similar in size to small UK hotel room so fine with that. It is an 'old' house but there... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your feedback. If you have the time, I would love it if you could email us and expand on what you mean by the lack of warmth and personality. I am not sure if you are referring to us as hosts, or the decor. If the hosts, then... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sable Room in the Avalon. The room itself, much like the rest of the house (which is located on a quaint, tree lined street, roughly 15 minutes walk from the downtown city centre), was tastefully appointed, comfortable, relatively spacious, quiet and private. We could tell that Christine takes pride and care in serving... More

This is a nice little hotel style B&B. We had the Ashwood rooms, which were on the top floor and were 2 spacious nicely decorated rooms with a bathroom between them. Beds were comfy and the area is very quiet. The host is a young women who was very helpful, even carrying one of our heavy bags upstairs. She gave... More
