4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This house is in the Sandy Hill area of Ottawa, only a 20-minute walk to the Byward Market and downtown. The rooms are nice, the house is clean and well-appointed, and the hosts (Brian and Carol) are very friendly. Breakfasts were good and healthy. One quibble: my wife’s struggled to connect with the Wi-Fi with her iPad. Brian recognized this... More

Carol & Brian are excellent hosts, they have very nice & quiet place, really felt like home! Brian suggested a visit to Wakefield which was an great suggestion and you must ask for the waffles for breakfast :)

So charming hosts. They really made our stay extreamly pleasant with their inside knowledge of the capital. My finacée and I stayed in the 2nd floor in a very spacious room with our own modern bath. Everything was very tidy and clean. We loved the talks to Brian and Carol during the breakfast, which by the way tasted really good... More

Not only are hosts Carol and Brian lovely and hospitable, but their home makes you feel instantly connected to a new city. Conveniently located and walkable distances to what this beautiful city has to offer made me feel like I lived in Ottawa for a week rather than just a surface visit; Australis House is a home away from home....

We stayed at Australis on our three night stay in Ottawa. We enjoyed the delightful hospitality of our hosts Brian and Carol. Our charming, spacious bedroom overlooked the street. Breakfasts were personally served in the dining room. Even though the location is an easy 20 minute walk to city centre, once we worked out the bus system it is only... More

This is relatively basic B&B style accommodation. However, this is more than compensated by the wonderful hosts Carol & Brien. Our bed was comfortable and the shower was hot. A good home-cooked breakfast is included. The major negative is the steep, narrow staircase to reach the bedrooms upstairs as there is no elevator. Assistance with luggage, however, is available.

It was very nice for us to stay in this lovely B&B in a residential neighborhood. Brian and Carol are perfect hosts--helpful but not at all overbearing. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. We stayed in the room on the third floor which had its own bathroom and a very convenient small room adjacent with a small refrigerator and... More

Great location, very easy access to downtown by bike. The house is close to cycling trails that connect with canal and riverside trails. Very quiet for sleeping and breakfast is delicious. Excellent accommodation for the solo traveler.
