I was in the 2 bedroom suite. Very clean and spacious. Came with a kitchenette -mini fridge, microwave, sink. Full bathroom, and 5 person dining table. The balcony was nice and the inn is in a great location. I would definitely come back here if I'm ever in Ottawa again.

Terrific location near the Byward Market and within short walking distance of the Parliament Buildings, National Gallery, Rideau Centre etc. Nothing fancy but clean, simple rooms with microwave, fridge and balcony that you can sit out on. Breakfast was excellent from bacon and omelettes to croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt etc. Afternoon tea with cookies, cheese and crackers also provided. Public... More

Value for money with polite staff. Room was clean and comfortable with kitchenette. Fitted bottom sheet on bed not deep enough, good size flat sheet would be better. Some slight problems with wifi, breakfast a bonus. Location excellent, walking distance to city centre and plenty of eateries and bars nearby but not too close to cause a noise issue. Only... More

The accommodation was comfortable, spacious and well-equipped. A varied and adequate breakfast was included in the price, as well as an afternoon snack. The staff were very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel for visiting the attractions of central Ottawa.

This may not be a 5 star hotel (it doesn't claim to be) but it has certainly made an effort to provide as many extras that posh hotels have!
