We returned to Benner's after several years. We found that it had expanded to an adjoining property and so it is bigger. We found also that the active management is now in the hands of the original Mr. Benner's son, a very energetic guy. No problem with either of these changes. We found our room beautifully arranged and everything we... More

Hospitality was great and the breakfasts were wonderful. The house has been tastefully refurnished and was in a quiet location surrounded by lovely homes yet within a comfortable walking distance of the market. When I wanted a different pillow it was no problem and alternatives were made available. As with older homes of this period soundproofing was not great and... More

This B&B was a great choice! The house is old, but inside it is well looked after and clean. The hosts, Kevan, Cassie and Lucy, serve a big, delicious breakfast in a most dignified dining room, taking care of important details like decaf tea and other dietary needs. The bus stop to Rideau centre is a short 2 block walk... More

Sorry for reviewing this so late. My husband and I spent 2 nights there in June 20th & 21st for his birthday getaway. Well appointed B&B, with all the right touches. We had the king loft room with a kitchen on the porch which we loved for afternoon tea and coffee. Kevin fixes a great breakfast with lots of variety.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there while visiting family and RBC Bluesfest. We stayed in the King loft room. A lovely, large loft experience room with room to host guests (if you don't want to use the common living room). The bathroom was large and comfortable. The kitchen sun room was fully stocked with supplies for fresh coffee in the... More

We loved the spacious MacDonald room with it's pleasant balcony overlooking three lovely and different treetops including the woodpeckers! Our bathroom was a little way along the corridor but luxurious and only for our use. We ate at nearby Byward Mkt. every eve.as we got to know different restaurants there. Kevin was always helpful and the breakfasts were gourmet everday... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights. It was great, the rooms are cozy and the owners were both very friendly. The location is close by the Byward Market and located within walking distance. Very close to the train station and about a 40 min drive from the airport. Definitely recommend trying out all the places to have... More

We stayed in the King loft Room. Our initial impressions were that it is a very nice room , which it is. However the mattress on the bed is very uncomfortable and gave both of us a sore back both nights. We do not normally have a sore back from a bed. The mattress is hard and likely a very... More

"You will remove your shoes and place them in the rubber trays provided", was the first greeting at Benner`s Bed & Breakfast`s entrance door by the owner, who had a rather military bearing but none of the military`s politeness and easy grace, which tends to come out of self-confidence, not lack of it. His shoe precaution was of course completely... More

Benner's B&B was fantastic. Kevan was such a great host and always available if we needed anything. We enjoyed the McDonald room as it had a balcony and we sat on it in the mornings enjoying our coffee from the little coffee maker available outside our room. Breakfasts were fantastic fresh and big servings. Nice quiet location and very close... More
