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

Lovely little B&B, atmosphere just like some places I've stayed at in Britain only way more friendly. Adorable Staff. Impeccably clean rooms. Apple pancake breakfast is a must try. Unless my cousin coughs up the keys to her place on the canal, this is where I'm going to stay each time I'm in Ottawa.

Lovely circa 1875 Century Home renovated as a quaint and charming B&B. I have never had better service at checkin. The breakfast was made to order and delicious. Walking distance to parliament building and National Galary. I would definitely return.

Old and beautiful home, well kept, cozy and clean. Breakfast is absolutely amazing. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Room was clean and well kept. If it is raining take a book to main toon, sit down and relax. The only down side is the location, a but too far from market and tourist areas. No walking distance.

A Bed and Breakfast Stay. Is It the Right Fit For You? Here are My 5 Whys for Choosing a Bed and Breakfast Over a Hotel. 1. A B&B is CHEAPER than a Hotel. And Deliciously More Interesting. 2. Homemade Breakfast Every Morning. Forget the Continental Hot Pot Coffee and Roll deal. 3. B&B Owners are Seasoned Locals with a... More

This was my first visit to Ottawa. I chose this place based on the reviews and was not disappointed in any way. Everything from check in to final departure was done with great warmth and attention.

Stayed here for 10 nights, the staff were incredible! They assisted me in finding places nearby to eat, things to do and simple things like how the public transport worked. Each morning scrumptious, freshly prepared breakfasts were served. Everyone was friendly, happy to engage in conversation and made you feel comfortable. The rooms were spotless, nicely decorated to compliment the... More

We have enjoyed staying at the Albert House on several visits to Ottawa for business and pleasure. It combines attentive personal service with an excellent downtown location. It offers free parking and is on the major east-west transit artery so access is never an issue. It is also easy walking distance to Parliament Hill and major office complexes in the... More

Thank you for your great review. We appreciate your comments. I did, however, want to point out one thing. We do charge for parking in our lot. For some reason you were not charged, and I am not sure what the circumstances were. Free parking is available from 5.30 pm Friday up to and including Sunday all day on the... More

I stay at the Albert House Inn whenever I travel to Ottawa on business. It is a charming heritage house in west downtown Ottawa. The rooms are each unique and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast is amazing, with lots of choice and seemingly unlimited amounts. The staff is always helpful and friendly.

We live in a period house built around the same time as this property and we are used to the idiosyncrasies one is likely to find in this type of property. Albert House Inn is a quirky, comfortable, warm, cosy and friendly resting place. It doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It is a B&B; but one of style.... More
