Great location in the city centre, only a short (15 min) walk to byward market and slightly further to parliament hill (25 min) but still peaceful and quiet to sleep at night. Lots of bars and restaurants very close by on Elgin St and surrounding area. Hotel itself is very homely and nicely presented, breakfast included is nice and our... More

I was preparing to return to the Ottawa Valley from a little sortie in Toronto with a diversion to Stratford when I got the urge to spend a night in Ottawa first, and perhaps take in some of the BluesFest. I found the Rideau Inn B&B and on seeing the address knew it was the place I had to stay.... More

Excellent location, clean, quiet and very hospitable hostess. My daughter and I spent the long weekend in Ottawa and stayed 2 nights in the Newfoundland room. Did not hear a sound from the other guests! Breakfast was ready each morning with hot coffee and had plenty to choose from. We parked the car at City Hall (15 minute walk away)... More

I looked all over for the right combination of location and value, and this was it. We took the Nova Scotia room, and the balcony was the perfect place to relax after walking for miles through the city. Lucie was extremely helpful and very friendly. I would recommend the Rideau Inn to my friends and family. It was a great... More

Our stay at the Rideau Inn Bed and Breakfast was very pleasant and our host, Lucy, was delightful. Not only was our room comfortable and a great sleep, but breakfast was above expectation. Lucy helped us in directions to a few places we wanted to see and she was always more than helpful. We would recommend Rideau Inn as an... More

Very well located B&B. Lucie (host) was very nice. Room was tidy, and all that you needed to use was clean - bed linens, bath, toilet, sink (they even changed our towels every day without request). There was some dust on the rails on the walls, walls and ceiling were not all that clean, and some lamp shades should be... More

We spent a wonderful long weekend in Ottawa. Despite the coldest weather of the year, we had a really good experience. The Inn is perfect, Lucy and the staff is really nice and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, as well as the washroom. Thank you, Rideau Inn!

Fantastic accommodations in every respect. Great location, beautiful rooms, a great variety for breakfast in the morning and above all else, wonderful owners and staff. I stayed here for 2 weeks and felt right at home the entire time...nothing but the highest regard for this place!
