We recently spent a few days at this lovely, homey B&B. We were treated like family members by our hosts, Siri and Hari. Our 2 dogs were welcomed by our hosts and their two Tibetan Terriers...what a great way to be greeted, lots of hello's and, after a proper introduction, doggy kisses. The local culture and entertainment is fabulous, we...

As a nursing mother with a small child I am always hesitant to stay in hotels. Siri and Hari made us immediately comfortable. The two dogs were well behaved and a treat for my husband who is a dog lover. The room was simple but very comfortable with soft sheets and a lovely, cosy duvet. We were offered lots of...

We tried to book the West room at $95, but Siri informed us ONLY the most expensive room was available ($120). There are 2 barking Tibetan Terrier dogs there: an old one and another who threw up on the living room carpet while Siri informed us that we were the only guests there and put us in the cheaper West...

What a wonderful four days I had staying here at the Downtown B&B. This was my first visit to Ottawa and I felt right at home. The hosts Siri and Hari were both very friendly and always welcomed company and a good conversation. Although I was traveling solo, I was fortunate to have been given the large room which was...

Want to visit your "grandparents" and float on a wave of loving, relaxed care? Come to Downtown B&B and enjoy... Every time I entered this house it felt just like coming home.

We stayed in the Park room at the Downtown B&B for two nights in August. The room was large, bright and clean. The house has a lovely porch area where you can relax and enjoy the sun. There is also a well stocked rack of tourist leaflets and information for guests. The B&B is in a great location for all...

With its untraditional decor and homey atmosphere, this vegetarian B&B is unlike any other Bed&Breakfast you'll ever stay at. We stayed there with our four-year-old son and found it a perfect place to stay with kids, who are very welcome. Our son loved the owners and theirs dogs and keeps talking about them as one the highlights of his Canadian...

This is a quaint and very reasonably-priced B&B, especially given its convenience to downtown. Parliament hill is a pleasant 15-minute walk away, and the various shops and cafés on Elgin Street are a stone's throw away. The hosts are extremely generous and gracious and will go the extra mile to help you with restaurants, atttactions, and the like. The place...

We stayed at this B&B with 3 other couples so that we could skate on the canal. The location was convenient and the hosts were somewhat polite. We did not know in advance that it was a vegan B&B. That should not have been a problem, except that when I asked if I could put a few things in the...

Dear TripAdvisor, We are writing this letter in response to a review that was posted on your web site. All of our web sites and publicity state CLEARLY that we are a vegetarian establishment and we are proud of this fact. “Vegetarian” is even clearly stated at the top of our Trip Advisor listing. Our water is cleaned by reverse...

Siri and Harimandir are great hosts and are very respectful of their guests privacy. They offered helpful suggestions as to where to eat and great places to visit. We were traveling with a baby and Harimander borrowed a crib from a friend so we did not have to travel with one on the plane. Thank you again!!!! The B&B is...
