After a busy day in Ottowa, I was greeted by wonderful Charmaine and George with a piece of delicious apple pie. It felt like I was arriving home to a wonderful family. The hosts are really interesting people who have travelled all over the world and have great stories to tell(the one about travelling to England with her cello after 9/11 was especially amazing). I spent 3 days with them in a lovely house enjoying truly delicious breakfasts(fresh fruits, French toast, bacon, eggs, etc.) and wonderful conversations. The room and bathroom were really, really clean; great towels too! They have over 85% return rate and I am not surprised. Great value and location, only a couple of blocks from the Glebe a terrific area of Ottowa with really interesting shops from Spas to coffee shops to clothing, pharmacies etc.
Would absolutely recommend the Ashbury House to anyone who wants great value, wonderful food, friendly people and nice, nice rooms. Did I mention the beautiful flowers on the dining room table? I could go on and on.....

I think you go beyond the exceptional in your hospitality and I know this is the rule and I was not an exception because the cab driver asked me about my stay.
