Benner's Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 53 Ottawa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Great B&B located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance of downtown. Excellent breakfast both days, and Kevan took special care to accommodate our dietary restrictions. Clean, well-decorated townhouse with tons of character, especially the loft-style room we stayed in for the weekend. Very friendly host, stimulating conversation at breakfast. Would definitely recommend it, and return on future visits to the nation's capital.

We stayed at Benner's for a night in March 2014. It was last minute but they did a great job of accommodating us. Great service, beautiful old house which has been turned into a stylish B&B, and delicious breakfast - the waffles! A good choice if looking for Sandy Hill -based accommodation.

This is the greatest place to stay in Ottawa. The location is within walking distance to the major downtown attractions. The B&B itself is great. Well kept up, the rooms are very nice, the breakfast is terrific. The host was very helpful.

I was actually born in Ottawa and have four brothers that still live in Ottawa. I normally stay with one of my brothers but this occasion was his surprise 60th Birthday party.

We wanted to be central so that we could enjoy the Byward Market, Parliament Hill and generally just walk the downtown area. The location of Benner's was perfect for that purpose - a very easy walk to all of the areas we were interested in seeing.
We stayed in the smallest room (sorry I can't remember the name of it). A previous review indicated that lack of light was an issue but we did not find we had a problem with that. The room was well appointed , small but very efficient and suited out needs perfectly. The bed was very comfortable and the whole house very clean and welcoming. Kevan's breakfasts were amazing. For me one of the great features of staying in a B&B are the other guests. We met two wonderful couples - oddly enough both from Texas- but one living in Toronto and one living in Newfoundland. Since we are planning a trip to Texas in the winter - we found them to be most informative.

This is a rather long story to say - we would highly recommend Benner's and would definitely book there again should the need arise.

Nice , clean B&B, close to public transit, cycling paths, quiet neighbourhood.
We had the king size bedroom, large sitting room and adjoining kitchenette, convenient for take out if you don't feel like going out...
Breakfast needs lots of improving i.e.. mild coffee, more protein for cycling people

Room Tip: The king size room is very large and comfy but on the third floor. The host was of great help in s...

We just did a drive through Algonquin Park and ended up at Ottawa. We stayed at Benner's B&B for a couple of nights while exploring the museums and Byward Market area of Ottawa. It is perfectly situated within easy walking distance to the Market and Parliament hill, as well as lots of the museums. We even walked from the B&B to the museum of Civilization in Hull, Que. Very easy getting around.
The B&B itself is gorgeous!! We stayed on the 3rd floor in a suite, that had a small kitchen area to enjoy also. The room was done beautifully, the bed was very comfortable (firm), and the bathroom was great. The entry to the loft is pretty cool, with a guillotine style door for an entry, (just be careful of the stairs...they can be a little slippery) The artwork through-out the building is phenominal, from paintings to drawings and sculptures to enjoy. We enjoyed our visit from Mickey the mini weiner dog as well. (very quite and friendly)
The breakfasts that Kevin prepared were very good and fueled us up for our walks.
A very pleasant stay!

We stayed in the McDonald Room for 2 nights, which was very comfortable and quiet, had our own balcony with a view at a green alley of trees, and a great spacious bathroom with Jacuzzi, all very relaxing. The whole house was nicely decorated and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well done and served in a beautiful dining room with tasteful decor, where we felt like kings and queens... The location in a quiet neighborhood was good, too, and we had about 15 minutes to walk to the city center. A very nice experience, we would come back!

Room Tip: McDonald Room absolutely recommended!
