My friend and I recently visited Ottawa and this is the first time of many, many times staying in Ottawa that I have booked a B&B. What a wonderful experience. We had the good fortune of having the upper level of the house and each had our own rooms with an adjoining bathroom. The best part was that the upper... More

We recently stayed at the Avalon while visiting our son at the university. The B&B far exceeded our expectations. Situated on a quiet charming residential street the Avalon is very conveniently located. On street parking can be a little difficult (it is a large city after all) but parking spaces have been reserved at an apartment complex a block away... More

Christine is an extremely welcoming person and very knowledgable about her city. From recommendations on eating establishments (all price points and variety) to directions regarding public transportation, which I alternated with walking to the downtown core. My room with private bathroom was cozy (with windows that opened, which I loved) and the breakfasts were delicious. When I got caught in... More

Christine was a great hostess providing us with lots of very useful information about Ottawa when we arrived as well as some great tips about where to eat. The local Ethiopian restaurant was a memorable and excellent meal. Christine cooked some wonderful breakfasts - the berry pancakes were sublime. Our room was very clean, comfortable and spacious and wifi was... More

I stayed at the Avalon while getting my son settled in to his first year at the University of Ottawa. From the moment Christine opened the door to her beautiful Bed and Breakfast I was struck by her kind, friendly, engaging, and welcoming presence. She insisted on carrying the heaviest items of the luggage up the stairs to the Ashwood... More

We absolutely loved Avalon B&B! The home has been renovated and beautifully decorated in tasteful, neutral colours with very thoughtful touches. The location is great for walking with everything pretty close by. We never realized what a great “walking city” Ottawa is and, with a hearty breakfast and good walking shoes, you can get around to see almost everything on... More

My wife and I visited Ottawa for the first time (July 21) and decided to try a B&B. We chose the Avalon for it's location and reviews on Tripadvisor. The owner, Christine, greeted us on our arrival and even carried our suitcase to our room. We chose the Pewter room, which was spacious with it's own balcony with a tree... More

We stayed at Avalon as part of our tour of Ontario and Quebec province and met up with Christine our host on the steps of the house. All of the canadians we met on our travels were friendly and especially the B&B hosts, but Christine raised the bar. She has a pleasant happy outlook and was more than happy to... More

My husband and 14 year old son stayed at the Avalon B&B for 4 nights over Canada Day. Christine was a perfectly charming host. She provided us with great restaurant advice, yummy breakfasts all at a super location.

We were in Ottawa for our granddaughter's high school graduation. The Avalon was recommended by the owner of a B&B where we had stayed previously (the owner had closed the B&B). We were here for three nights. Our room, The Pewter, was large and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the street. It is a 15 minute walk to the Byward... More
