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.

6/10 Good

House was dingy and smelled of dog, non-guest rooms were dirty and looked like they belonged to hoarders, shared bathroom was clean but the "complimentary" (i.e. present) toiletries consisted of watered-down shower gel/hand soap/shampoo and the towels were small and well-worn. Guest room was furnished for utility with thrifted poor-condition pieces, the room didn't have any style, and bed linens were worn and rough. I half-expected to see bedbug bites on me the next morning (I didn't). Very noisy, but that's more a function of the age of the house than management. Didn't have breakfast but it looked like cold cereal or instant oatmeal were the options. I have traveled in different countries on a variety of budgets so I'm pretty open-minded and forgiving; this place has potential but it's so poorly looked after and thoughtlessly managed that I'm really surprised it has any reviews above mediocre. Would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone. To the owners in the spirit of helping their business: clean up those packrat rooms or install a door that fully closes and keep them hidden; hire a stager, remove 1/3 of the furniture and rearrange the rest into what could be lovely cosy rooms; provide new towels and a basket of individual hand soaps and shampoos in the bath; get rid of the ad hoc furniture everywhere (e.g. breakfast trolley); ensure all lightbulbs function; febreze. One week's accommodation rate spent on the house would do wonders.
