Charmaine and George make your stay perfect. This B&B is located close to 417 and close to public transit to get downtown. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. We like the Magnolia Suite which has a door between 2 separate sleeping areas. This B&B doesn't have central a/c, but our room had in room a/c... More

Location is excellent, right in the Glebe area, with lots of unique shops and eatery. Charmaine and George made you feel like a part of their family. And their breakfast is like a five star restaurant. Most people are repeat customers, like us. We would never stay in a hotel whenever we comes to Ottawa.

This small historic house in the central Glebe area offers a B&B run by the most charming and friendly couple. The rooms are very comfortable, although the bathrooms are tiny. The breakfasts are amazing. Over three mornings, we never had the same menu.

I stayed with George and Charmaine for 2 weeks when I was in Ottawa. George and Charmaine were very welcoming and nice! I had very early morning starts to my day which meant I would not be able to join the breakfast service, however Charmaine was nice enough to prepare me breakfast and leave it by my door the night...

The room was clean and bright, they had left a little treat waiting for us when we arrived. We found their conversation warm and they were very knowledgeable about the area. French toast with fresh fruit is hard to argue with. All three days were a great experience.

The hosts could not be more inviting, helpful and genuinely lovely people. Best omelets ever! The homemade fresh apple pie was a welcome treat. Great location and an overall wonderful stay, would definitely recommend to others looking for a B&B in ottawa

Our original 5 night stay at this great B and B stretched into 8 nights, and the owners could not have been more welcoming and flexible. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Apple pie to die for - thanks Charmaine. We stayed in their third floor apt which is ideal for small... More

We had a wonderful second stay at Ashbury House. Once again, they were warm, welcoming, organized, friendly and accommodating. This time we had the family suite. It was the perfect amount of space for our family of 5. It made a lovely base from which to explore Ottawa for the Family Day Weekend. Thank you!

Ashbury House is brilliantly situated in the heart of Ottawa, an easy walk from interesting storefronts on Bank Street and not far from museums, art galleries, theatres and excellent restaurants. The inn itself is comfortable and welcoming. The hosts are part of what makes the place not-your-average hostelry. She is a former World Bank executive in Washington. He is (according... More

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. When I responded with superlatives, he told me it was the same with every fare he picked up there." Joan – California ... more   less
