What a wonderful change of pace from a large, sterile hotel! We stayed here for 2 nights in July and were met by the host and the young, lovely staff who helped us park and helped with our luggage. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the twin room on the 3rd level - very clean and with an individual... More

The Albert House Inn is a comfy and quiet place to stay in Ottawa. The building is on the city's historic register and is attractive and well kept. It's within easy walking distance of the Rideau River path, Parliament Hill, and attractions like the Canadian War Museum. The room we had was spacious and well-appointed. Our hosts were very pleasant... More

Lee, Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed our Inn and breakfast choices. I am sorry that you were not happy that you were required to pay for parking, but downtown Ottawa has very limited parking and all accommodation facilities charge (even more) for parking on site. We feel that the cost of... More

Victorian building converted to b&b. Basic rooms are pretty small, shower and toilet are in separate rooms. The toilet itself basically in a closet so if you are taller than 6' or overweight it's gonna be a bit uncomfortable doing No. 2. AC unit in our room was pretty noisy but we asked for and were given ear plugs. WiFi... More

I've been staying here on and off for 29 years. Cathy & John were still renovating when I first came. Cathy still keeps a steady hand on the tiller, ensuring consistently excellent service through an ever changing cadre of young staff. This is my home for trips to Ottawa. Originally built in 1874, this old lady still has an air... More

I booked my father here (70years old) for a mini stay while we were located in Toronto (visiting from Australia) The service he received was outstanding! Having never visited Ottawa before he was given so much information on what to see and how to get there. He was also given an umbrella by the hosts due to the unpredictable weather.... More

So I stayed at the Albert House the week of May 7th. I had room 401 which is actually on the 3rd floor. I have bad knees and didn't mind the walk up, it wasn't bad at all. The rooms were nice with furniture from the era of the hotel. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The shower always had... More

The Albert House Inn is a cute Victorian B&B run by a super friendly family who are very accommodating. The fresh, cooked to order breakfast is fantastic, and those apple pancakes are a must-try! There is free wifi, tea and coffee in the lounge, cable, optional parking (although street parking was easy enough) and its a quiet area within easy... More

I recently attended an academic conference for 3 days in Ottawa and was hoping to find a smaller alternative lodging apart from the usual impersonal chain hotels. The Albert House Inn fit the bill perfectly. Built as a private residence in the late 19th century, it has Victorian attributes that add to its charm. There's a pleasant sitting room just... More

We chose to stay here because we find big hotels can become impersonal and lack charm or character. We were not disappointed with our selection! From the warmth of our welcome, to the specification of the room and of course the made to order breakfast, nothing was too much trouble. It was a positive delight to stay here, the room... More
