My fiancé and I stay for two nights in October and loved it! Breakfast was served with the elegance of an evening meal, complete with candles!
The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the linens were so lovely that we found the label and then went looking for them in the shops.
It's a short walk to all of the tourist sites and it's across the street from the walking/biking trail along the river - so we had a wonderful time enjoying that. We also loved the conversations we had over breakfast with the other guests.
We highly recommend Shirley Samantha's if you want elegant, convenient comfort and warm, knowledgeable hospitality in Ottawa.
