Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel in Ottawa. Great breakfast.
Great hotel in heart of Ottawa. Off the 5 or 6 hotels I used on my holiday to Canada, this place served the best breakfast. The only hotel to serve fresh breakfast muffins! Room was clean & spacious, kitchen most useful. Wi-Fi worked well. Friendly helpful staff. Lots of local restaurants/bars to eat out.

Overnight stay
Everyone was so helpful. Reasonably priced parking. Room was like a bed sit. Lots of space, very comfortable, and well equipped for anyone wanting to self cater. Walking distance to centre. Breakfast was excellent and there were even go bags for those in a hurry. We would definitely recommend and would stay again if in the city.

The pictures of this hotel don't do it justice. It's in the centre of town. The hotel was clean and spacious. Less than a minute walk to the local bars/restaurant and 5-10 minute walk to downtown. Really good hotel would recommend it to anyone

Exceptional 10.0
We were travelling for a month and stayed here at the beginning and the end of our trip, it was excellent both times, more of a suite than a room, it had simply everything! The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very good, the room and all in it was in very good condition. Would definitely stay there again.
