This B&B was a great choice! The house is old, but inside it is well looked after and clean. The hosts, Kevan, Cassie and Lucy, serve a big, delicious breakfast in a most dignified dining room, taking care of important details like decaf tea and other dietary needs. The bus stop to Rideau centre is a short 2 block walk...

Sorry for reviewing this so late. My husband and I spent 2 nights there in June 20th & 21st for his birthday getaway. Well appointed B&B, with all the right touches. We had the king loft room with a kitchen on the porch which we loved for afternoon tea and coffee. Kevin fixes a great breakfast with lots of variety....

My boyfriend and I stayed there while visiting family and RBC Bluesfest. We stayed in the King loft room. A lovely, large loft experience room with room to host guests (if you don't want to use the common living room). The bathroom was large and comfortable. The kitchen sun room was fully stocked with supplies for fresh coffee in the...

We loved the spacious MacDonald room with it's pleasant balcony overlooking three lovely and different treetops including the woodpeckers! Our bathroom was a little way along the corridor but luxurious and only for our use. We ate at nearby Byward Mkt. every eve.as we got to know different restaurants there. Kevin was always helpful and the breakfasts were gourmet everday...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights. It was great, the rooms are cozy and the owners were both very friendly. The location is close by the Byward Market and located within walking distance. Very close to the train station and about a 40 min drive from the airport. Definitely recommend trying out all the places to have...

We stayed in the King loft Room. Our initial impressions were that it is a very nice room , which it is. However the mattress on the bed is very uncomfortable and gave both of us a sore back both nights. We do not normally have a sore back from a bed. The mattress is hard and likely a very...

"You will remove your shoes and place them in the rubber trays provided", was the first greeting at Benner`s Bed & Breakfast`s entrance door by the owner, who had a rather military bearing but none of the military`s politeness and easy grace, which tends to come out of self-confidence, not lack of it. His shoe precaution was of course completely...

Benner's B&B was fantastic. Kevan was such a great host and always available if we needed anything. We enjoyed the McDonald room as it had a balcony and we sat on it in the mornings enjoying our coffee from the little coffee maker available outside our room. Breakfasts were fantastic fresh and big servings. Nice quiet location and very close...

The courtesy of the owner and its breakfast are great. I really enjoyed talking to him. And he is an excellent cook, clearly enjoying making a different breakfast everyday! The house is nice and well located. There are a couple of downsides: 1) breakfast is served at a set time (8:30). If you cannot make it you are given a...

This house is in a good residential area, neighbours to some Embassies. The room was comfortable and everything was clean and well decorated. Breakfast was very satisfying, lots of fruit, eggs, waffles, juice and coffee.
