Excellent owners
Owners were the nicest people ever. Room was clean, though the bed was a double so a bit small. Will be staying here again if in Ottawa.

Lovely, friendly and quirky bnb
Quirky bnb with super friendly owners and lovely room. Located opposite the natural history museum, in walking distance from all key sights. Would recommend!

4/10 Fair

I don’t usually write reviews, but felt compelled to write a review to hopefully help others. Calling this place a Bread and Breakfast is a stretch. It certainly doesn’t have the appearance of one nor the upkeep. The house is very cluttered, the room was at least tidy, though it had a very old mattress that bent in the middle when laid on. The price charged is definitely not justified for the lodging, the only positive thing was the location. The owners are cordial, but not withstanding, it is not a place I would recommend due to the house conditions.

2/10 Poor

I booked this B&B on the strength of positive web reviews. I should have dug deeper. Room was small, with old, uncomfortable bed with squeaky mattress. Common rooms were cluttered and dingy looking. Small shared bathroom (which I know is not uncommon for a B&B, but had expected better for supposedly one of the best in Ottawa). Second floor bedroom was sweltering, with no air condition. Paid for my reservation, and left to find accommodations elsewhere. I encourage prospective customers to skip my first step.

The owners were just the sweetest people you can imagine. The premises were clean, cozy, and homey, which is exactly what i want when traveling. Also there is a Most Excellent Dog in residence at the time of this review.
