This is a traditional B&B with a sumptuous breakfast served at Maria's dining table. We enjoyed long conversations with Maria during and well after breakfast. The room was quiet, with an ensuite and clean.

This B&B is located in a quiet street just a few blocks from downtown, very close to the main bus lines and a short walk to Parliament. The host, Maria, was very accommodating and helpful, and cooked excellent breakfasts each day.

Beautiful home in a quiet neighbourhood close to downtown. The house, itself, is full of character. My room was spacious, comfortable and with lots of natural light. The proprietor, Maria, has thought of everything!! A shared kitchenette where I made tea every night, books and magazines to read, a fridge and microwave. The breakfasts each morning were fabulous: tasty, healthy,... More

We had the loft room with the ensuite. Parking was included and the breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the conversation over breakfast with Maria and three other quests. We were fortunately able to get a last minute booking for Thanksgiving.

Great location, complete with parking. Maria was a very helpful tourist guide as well as a great cook. We were able to walk to all the tourist areas and also to the bus stop for the hop on hop off bus tour.

This B&B is well located, and very nicely kept. Maria is a great hostess, and a bit of a "character". She takes an interest in her guests, and she has lots of good suggestions on places to see and eat. Her cooked breakfasts are tasty, filling, and artistically presented. Maria has a large stock of recipes, so unless you're planning... More

Located 10-15 minutes walk from centre of town and attractions like Parliament hill, this homely B&B was a great place to stay for a few days. Maria was a great host and it was nice to sit round the breakfast table in the morning chatting with her and the other guests. Ottawa great city for walking around with lots of... More

Great location in Ottawa as well as parking - can't beat that in the city. The breakfasts were delicious. I was worried the air conditioning might be suspect in a old house, but it was excellent and necessary given the heat wave. We would recommend this B & B.
