I stayed one night on Nov 2016 at Benner's B&B. Kevin, the owner, was very kind in explaining how the B&B works, very clean place, quiet in a nice neigbourhood. Close to the Ottawa down Town (20 min walk from Convention Center). Great breakfast (more than just muffin and toast..) and very good coffee. Parking is included, just not on... More

Recently stayed for 1 night the Benner's B&B. Very clean, well decorated, comfortable, and great breakfast. The only word of caution, is that is gets quite noisy. You can hear guests coming in late at night, and getting up in the morning. Gap under room door does not help. Guests were all respectful, but we had a room close to... More

My sister-in-law and I stayed at Benner's B&B this past weekend for two nights. The room was very clean and comfortable. The meals provided by Kevan and his staff were delicious. Kevan was very helpful in advising us on the area and suggesting Vittoria Trattoria as an excellent Italian restaurant - but reservations are advised. We really enjoyed our stay,... More

We stayed at Benner's Bed and Breakfast for three nights and were thrilled with our choice. Our absolutely charming host Kevan was most hospitable and was very clear about the "rules" of the house. Upon arrival we were oriented and familiarized with all of the services and amenities offered to us at Benner's. The house is Edwardian in style and... More

The location was very convenient, the room was lovely and spacious, and the linens were excellent. I loved the pleasant balcony graced with nearby trees from which to watch the bird feeder next door. Although the owner had many rules, he was available to help with any request. Breakfast was fruit and pancakes with all the fixings. I would stay... More

Although the room was clean and breakfast was good, not a great experience. Friendly host, but somewhat strict with many little rules - there even was a list of things we could not do. Fine of course, but the demanding tone of the owner made it feel like we were entering a Spartan boot camp. The rooms were clean and... More

We stayed in this B&B for two nights and found the location excellent and within easy walking distance of the tourist attractions we wished to visit in Ottawa. The room was lovely and clean and was in an adjoining house where the parents lived so we had to go next door for our breakfast which was well worth it. We... More

Benners owner/manager is a very hospitable host. Our room was pleasant, and comfortable. Breakfasts were beautifully served and tasty. Eight guests could sit around the table which meant people talked to each other making this a friendly situation and interesting. The lounge area in our particular location was beautifully arranged with lovely object d'art, decor, etc. We highly recommend Benners.... More

We returned to Benner's after several years. We found that it had expanded to an adjoining property and so it is bigger. We found also that the active management is now in the hands of the original Mr. Benner's son, a very energetic guy. No problem with either of these changes. We found our room beautifully arranged and everything we... More

Hospitality was great and the breakfasts were wonderful. The house has been tastefully refurnished and was in a quiet location surrounded by lovely homes yet within a comfortable walking distance of the market. When I wanted a different pillow it was no problem and alternatives were made available. As with older homes of this period soundproofing was not great and... More
