We had a pleasant visit to the Albert House Inn in April. We found the service warm and personal. It was a great touch to have a selection of newspapers - Ottawa Citizen, New York Times, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail - to read over breakfast. Breakfast was also very well done: several courses and very well made. It's exactly...

We stayed only for 2 nights , and it was great because the owners are very nice and helpful. The location is very good, you can walk if you want to the main attractions in town. The breakfast was home made style, and the hotel very cozy, specially the fireplace in the main room , where you can drink a...

This is the best Bed and Breakfast I ever stayed. The owners, Kathy and John, are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very confortable and clean. The location is great, close to rstaurants, drugstores and to many bus stops. I really loved my staying.

Came for business reasons because it was close to where I needed to be, but I would recommend it for anyone -- good rates, right downtown, and extremely nice innkeepers! (And a good made-to-order breakfast, too.)

We spent two (2) wonderful days at Albert House Inn; and, the owners were extra wonderful in making our stay enjoyable. There is plenty of information available for things to o in Ottawa; and, the staff is very knowledgeable about this beautiful city of Ottawa. We will definitely return again; this was our third time there!

I would like to share my wonderful experience at the Albert House Inn. This was my first time in a smaller hotel. I was there for one week at the beginning of December, in a moderate single. All the rooms have their own bathroom and shower or bath. The owners (Cathy and John) and their team were always helpful and...

My first stay at the Albert House was 30 years ago as a graduate student. Now I'm grey-haired & semi-retired, but I still enjoy the historic Albert House when I come to Ottawa. Kathy & John go that extra mile to provide a homey atmosphere, and the hearty breakfast menu is great.

I usually stay at the Marriott when I travel to Ottawa on business but this time around I decided to try something different. The Albert's rates were very competitive and parking was very reasonable for downtown Ottawa. I checked in early and was easily accommodated. My room was very clean and looked very comfortable. The gentleman who showed me to...

Cathy and her team really run this place with soul and character. I enjoyed the stay a lot and felt it was an experience in itself. It's a place where you feel like a welcome guest, not like a passing visitor. The hotel is a historic building built by one of the Chief Architects of the Dominion for himself, though...

Thank you for your kind remarks. We do our best to ensure that our guests have a comfortable stay with us. I do enjoy cooking breakfast and do so as often as I can when I am not needed at the Front Desk. Yes, we do have several steps up to our front entrance but please be assured they are...

Cathy and her staff are delightful. Beautiful character place, clean and welcoming. Great location with lots to see in walking distance. Would not hesitate to return. Rooms are more than comfortable and the food was great. Would highly recommend for business or just a friendly visit to Ottawa
