Cold temperatures are one thing (it is Ottawa after all) but a winter-like snow storm made all my plans for walking around old familiar neighbourhoods impossible. I made due by simply enjoying the lovely common area before heading home. Even though it was past check out time it was "not a problem".

We only had one night in Ottawa and our stay was perfect at the Avalon BnB. About a 15 mins walk to byward market area. Kevan was kind and organized for checking in! He was very attentive to our needs. My friend and I stayed in the pewter room which had comfortable queen bed, a balcony, and nicely decorated. Breakfast...

My my husband and I booked a last-minute weekend getaway at Avalon bed and breakfast earlier this month through Booking.com. This quaint heritage locale is colocated with Benner's B&B in quiet Sandy Hill, walking distance (about 15-20 min) from the Rideau Canal and other major attractions. Our room (the Ashwood) was a comfortable homey space on the third level (required...

Not a single negative thing to say about our stay. Nice comfy room, a different breakfast for each of our four days stay in Ottawa, and a really lovely host and hostess. We'll definitely go back and hope to see you there.

Stayed here with my daughter so she could have a break from her roommate. Spent most of the time in our room...she was writing a paper and I was resting my knees. Room was small but comfortable. Host was welcoming. It was really quiet all day making it productive for my daughter. Breakfast was exceptional. What's not to like? Oh....and...

We visit Ottawa regularly to visit our son in school. This Thanksgiving we found Avalon and will certainly return. It's conveniently located in a quiet area of Sandy Hill which is a neighbourhood with a mixture of residential, student and embassies. It's within walking distance to the Byward Market and Parliament Hill. We arrived in the evening and called host...

The B&B host was very welcoming and helpful. The location is close to the stop for buses for the short trip to downtown Ottawa and the museums. Free parking for car was a nice perk. Our room was on the top floor, and was large and airy and all very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had a...

We spent a week-end in Ottawa to enjoy museums, so we booked this lovely B&B to not feel rush in our visits. We like walking, and realized the Avalon is at 20 minutes form the Centre Rideau, Château Laurier, Parliament Hill and Marché By. Kevin welcomed us warmly and explain the few things we needed to know (door code, confirmation...

Excellent commodities, delicious breakfast, hosts were very welcoming and always available for any questions. The location is very nice, in a calm neighbourhood, and very close to the city center. We highly recommend the place and for sure will come back on a next ocasion.

I'd have a hard time believing that there are any nicer B&Bs in Ottawa at this price range. Kevan and Cassie are just as welcoming and accommodating as any couple could be. Their house is beautifully decorated. The rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. The wifi works throughout the house. They are located in a cozy neighborhood close to downtown....

“The room was on the top floor, accessed by a steep staircase which made it difficult to move heavy suitcases up and down.”
