The Gilmour Inn has everything - great location, beautiful antiques, comfortable rooms, yummy breakfast and a wonderful host! I was there for one night on a business trip - but this place would be great as well for personal visits to Ottawa in the future! Thank you Richard and see you again soon!

Our family booked almost all of the rooms at Gilmour Inn, which is near the restaurant where our son's wedding reception was held. Richard was so accommodating from our arrival to our departure. The Inn is very attractive and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend the Gilmour Inn.

I stayed at the Gilmour Inn long enough to have a wide experience. In the end, I will recommend this B&B to anyone who wants privacy, serenity and hospitality in a period setting.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at The Gilmour Inn. Richard is so friendly and he is so hospitable. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean.

I have stayed at this B & B, several times and have absolutely nothing negative to say about it. The Inn-Keeper, Richard Brouse is an incredibly gracious host and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are immaculate, and the breakfasts are delicious and filling. If you leave there hungry in the morning...
