This was my first visit to Ottawa. I chose this place based on the reviews and was not disappointed in any way. Everything from check in to final departure was done with great warmth and attention. The room was lovely and cozy and the bed was one of those you did not want to part with in the morning though...

Stayed here for 10 nights, the staff were incredible! They assisted me in finding places nearby to eat, things to do and simple things like how the public transport worked. Each morning scrumptious, freshly prepared breakfasts were served. Everyone was friendly, happy to engage in conversation and made you feel comfortable. The rooms were spotless, nicely decorated to compliment the...

Thanks for the great review Jasmine, We hope you enjoyed your trip to Toronto and got to see everything you wanted to and hopefully took in a hockey game. We loved hosting you. You became like family to us and our staff. I assume you are home now - hopefully the trip home was uneventful. All the best - Cathy,...

We have enjoyed staying at the Albert House on several visits to Ottawa for business and pleasure. It combines attentive personal service with an excellent downtown location. It offers free parking and is on the major east-west transit artery so access is never an issue. It is also easy walking distance to Parliament Hill and major office complexes in the...

Thank you for your great review. We appreciate your comments. I did, however, want to point out one thing. We do charge for parking in our lot. For some reason you were not charged, and I am not sure what the circumstances were. Free parking is available from 5.30 pm Friday up to and including Sunday all day on the...

I stay at the Albert House Inn whenever I travel to Ottawa on business. It is a charming heritage house in west downtown Ottawa. The rooms are each unique and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast is amazing, with lots of choice and seemingly unlimited amounts. The staff is always helpful and friendly.

We live in a period house built around the same time as this property and we are used to the idiosyncrasies one is likely to find in this type of property. Albert House Inn is a quirky, comfortable, warm, cosy and friendly resting place. It doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It is a B&B; but one of style....

I recently stayed at Albert House Inn while visiting Ottawa for a conference. I've never stayed at a bed and breakfast during solo travel but I must say it was a really lovely experience. I stayed in the queen standard room. It is, as described, standard with an armchair, floor lamp, wardrobe bed, and dresser. The shower is tiny but...

We've been to the Albert House Inn twice now and enjoyed our stay each time! The breakfasts are delicious-- definitely try the apple pancakes. Great value, and a neat little house with an interesting history.

Thanks for the kind comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your second stay with us. Yes, the apple pancakes are my favourite too. Our sampler plate is very popular as well - a little bit of everything - (one apple pancake, one blueberry pancake and french toast). Served with butter and real maple syrup - yum! Thanks again and...

Took advantage of the Thanksgiving holidays and decided to travel to Ottawa, the rate was affordable even for a student like me.
