  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Staff very friendly, rooms clean with all the amenities you need. Maids in every day. Continental breakfast - more than that - fresh fruit, muffins with bacon/sausage, egg and melted cheese. White and brown bread, muffins, bagels, etc. Yoghurts, apple deserts. Tea/coffee, juices - lots of choices, even bags made up for going out for the day with bottles of water and healthy snacks. Wash/dry room for clothes - all free. Really do not know how the hotel makes profit. Excellent value - no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended.

    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.

    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.
