“Welcoming, cosy & great host!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

First time visitor to Ottowa and found this B&B to be in a great location - so close to the National Art Gallery (you have to see the the giant bronze spider, Maman, created by Louise Bourgeois) and Byward food district. Bike hire is just opposite the Art Gallery (the Bixi, public bicycle sharing system) and makes travel around the city very easy and fun! Wendy was a great host and I loved swapping stories over breakfast of her travels and mine. Breakfast was a feast and with a belly full of goodness you knew your day of adventure was off to a good start.
Recommended and would definitely return!

Stayed at the Byward B&B for only 2 nights in the heat of August and had a most amazing and epic stay... conveniently located for touristy-type activities, very private, clean, comfortable, and welcoming atmosphere... the personality of the proprietor was all around and made it feel much homey thus. Wendy was a joy during breakfast and had a wonderful discussion with the other guest... amazing experience all around!
Many thanks... was the bright red cherry on top of the most perfect visit to Ottawa!

Country hospitality in the heart of the city made this a lovely stay. We also had with us our 9 month old daughter and she was well received breakfast each morning was tasty and fresh and served promptly by Wendy our host who had great local recommendations.

We just stayed at this B&B during the Victoria long weekend and could not have wished for better accommodation. The place was so special, very tastefully decorated and felt like a home away from home. The living room was very inviting for lounging, the balcony was a great touch on a sunny afternoon and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
Wendy, our host was very helpful in recommendations and very pleasant to chat to during the yummy morning breakfast.
The location of the B&B could not have been better, just steps away from the market and the bustle of the city and a short distance away from main attractions.
A very favoured B&B by us, we would gladly recommend it to friends.

This B&B is very well located, we can explore all that we want by walking. The living room of the B&B is so beautiful, very peaceful, as well for the bedroom. The hostess was also very nice and friendly.

Great location just 3 blocks from the Market, 1 block from the Nation Arts Center, right behind the Cathedral. Quiet and private. We will stay there again.
