“Excellent service and location.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Richard, host of the B&B, deserves the high praise he has received. The location is very central, right in the heart of the University district and a 15 minute walk to the Market, and other main sights. The building itself is quite nice, the rooms are very well equiped, spacious, and very charming with period decorations. However, it is Richard that makes the place feel welcoming and worthy of # 1 status. He is extremely knowledgeable of Ottawa and more than willing to assist in any matter. Richard is a globe trotter who is understanding and sympathetic towards fellow travellers and has many great stories to share.

This is a wonderful B & B operated by a very knowledgeable and personable owner. Richard knows Ottawa inside and out. Upon arrival, he will ask you what you are hoping to do and see while in Ottawa.... and then he volunteers to help you organize your stay.
Richard is a professional. He is up-to-date on everything that is happening in his favorite city. He gave us great advice. (Thanks to Richard, three of the four places we visited were FREE.)
The breakfast was GREAT..... and so was the conversation. Its nice to meet a proud Canadian who is passionate about his history.

Please note: although we had a car, it was clear that we didn't need one. Seeing Ottawa, the Parliament Buildings, the Market, the Museum of Civilization, the National Gallery by foot is the only way to go. (If you have mobility issues, keep in mind the taxis in Ottawa are inexpensive and reliable.) You won't regret your stay at Auberge The King Edward.... you are in good hands with Richard.

you can walk everywhere- host Richard will provide you with good ideas, maps as well as a hearty breakfast to send you off for the day- nicely restored Victorian home and a lot of attention to detail- definitely a place we would return to

Room Tip: room in the tower with bathroom was our favorite- lots of room to sit and relax-

We chose this B and B for its excellent location and informative website. Upon arrival we were fascinated by the Edwardian decor and very pleased with the ample space in our ensuite room. Richard immediately made us welcome and gave us all the necessary tourist information to make our stay most successful. Over the sumptuous breakfasts we had engaging chats both with our host and the other guests from around the world.

Room Tip: The Tower room is very spacious and has an ensuite bathroom, the other two do not.

It is very obvious that Richard loves his city! His advice and inside tips were extremely helpful! As soon as we arrived he was showing us locations on a map and finding out what we wanted to do. All of his tips were spot on (e,g, where to watch the light show etc). On the final morning Richard was kind enough to drop us off in town when we were running late!

The house itself is a beautiful restored house within easy walking distance on the main part of Ottawa. Breakfast was good without being fantastic - we did enjoy having the chance to chat with the other guests and Richard so it was by no means a bad experience but the food itself wasn't overly exciting. To be honest this B&B is possibly for people slightly older than us but that's more an observation than a criticism.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and we loved Ottawa. If you want a host with impeccable knowledge of Ottawa, Richard is your man.

The Auberge King Edward B&B is the ideal basis for a great time in Ottawa. Just parking the car in the backyard you can walk to all important and interesting destinations. King Edward is close to the university campus. It was fantastic to stay in this comfortable ambience of a Victorian style house. The breakfast is excellent and will keep you full energy for the day. Thanks Richard, he gave as so much valuable information where to go. We highly recommend this place.

We stayed at the King Edward in September 2012 and found it conveniently located to the centre of Ottawa being only ten minutes walk away. The B&B was very comfortable and has a relaxing ambiance and a very good breakfast. Richard is an accomplished host and has welcomed thousands of guests into the B&B which is his creation. The bedrooms are very comfortable and you are guaranteed a good nights sleep. An added bonus is Richard's extensive knowledge of what is worth visiting and once he understands your interests he will come up with suggestions which will enable you to get the most out of your visit and anywhere else you may be going. We would stay again and recommend the B&B to our friends.

Room Tip: There are three rooms all are good; one as en-suite facilities and the other two share a bathroom wh...
