Amazing place, and amazing hosts. George and Charmine turned from my landlords to my friends. I miss you and remember you with lot of love. The house will make you feel home with premium rooms and breakfast. Truly supported to make your stay smooth. Congratulations! God bless

As soon as we walked in, Charmaine & George greeted us like dearly missed family. Their kindness continued throughout our whole stay. Breakfast was a delight and the atmosphere was quite relaxed, which encouraged fascinating conversations around the table. Our room was comfortable and Charmaine's signature apple pie, provided in our room, was excellent. Plenty of attractions are within walking...

Although Charmaine is a delightful, warm, kind and intelligent person who clearly wants to befriend everyone who crosses her threshold, her warm welcome and the good location of the b-and-b are not enough compensation for the shabbiness of the accommodation. We stayed in the apartment, which had filthy shear curtains, shabby and worn furnishings and an inadequate, ill-equipped kitchen (complete...

George N, Owner at Ashbury House B&B, responded to this review

The Apartment has received favorable comments from diplomats, executives and families that have stayed there - regarding location, sleep quality, rooms, service, value and cleanliness. The guest had reserved for 10 days to visit with family but decided to return home after 4 days due to family issues. We unfortunately added fuel to the guest's concerns by suggesting that the...

We visit Ottawa quite often as our daughter attends school there, and so when we discovered Ashbury House, we knew we had hit the jackpot! We are always welcomed like family, no matter how long it has been: my recent visit was the first in well over a year. Charmaine and George make you feel at home the minute you...

Long day at work, a 4+ hour drive made worse by a delay at the border crossing, a missed turn that added more time--it was all forgotten the minute the door opened at the Ashbury House. George greeted us with a smile and a handshake, then Charmaine appeared with 2 huge slices of her homemade apple crumble pie! Heaven on...

The Ashbury House is located in the Glebe area of Ottawa. Very close to museums, great restaurants and shops. This beautiful home is in a neighborhood of similar old, large well kept homes. It was fun walking around the neighborhood enjoying the architecture. The inn keepers, Charmaine and George could not have been any kinder and welcoming! We felt comfortable...

Charmayne and George are very welcoming and had helpful suggestions of places to go. George helped park the car until I got used to it. I stayed 5 days here with a comfortable queen bed. The air conditioner kept the room very comfortable and I had a sound sleep. There is a private bathroom with shower , easy chairs, closet...

We arrived here early afternoon and Charmaine wasn't in the least put out and provided us with hot drinks and apple crumble while we sat on her front porch until our room was ready. We had booked the Mulberry room but Charmaine had decided to upgrade us to the apartment which takes up the top floor of the house so...

George and Charmaine make you feel comfortable since the arrival, such a lovely and kind couple. Our room was big, cozy and the bed was fantastic. It has an excellent location near Bank St. and Carleton which was great for us. The breakfast is wonderful with fresh fruit and bacon! George and Charmaine were always available and helped us a...

We booked before my partner sadly passed away but i decided to make the trip anyway as we were intending to visit a friend who lives nearby. I'm really pleased that I decided to go. Breakfasts were amazing, the company lively and interesting and Charmaine and George looked after me brilliantly. You have to try the warm apple pie, it's...

I think you go beyond the exceptional in your hospitality and I know this is the rule and I was not an exception because the cab driver asked me about my stay.
