“Excellent location, warm welcome”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Located in the heart of Ottawa, within walking distance of most places of interest, this is a pleasant and calm place to stay. Lucie, the Manager, was invariably helpful, charming and very welcoming.
We stayed in the New Brunswick room which had its own adjoining bathroom and were very pleased with all the facilities, bearing in mind that this is a B and B, not a hotel.
Our sole complaint was the breakfast, which was pretty dire.
Having said that, we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The New Brunswick room is at the back, away from any street noise.

Reviewed 28 July 2014

I stayed in Rideau Inn for 3 nights, I was staying in the Ontario room with shared bathroom facilities. The room was very nice, pleasantly designed and with a great bed. The only thing is that it got quite hot in my room, even with the A/C on (and it wasn't even that warm outside) I think this is in general a warm house.

Luckily there was a sundeck on the second floor, very pleasant to sit in the evenings. Breakfast was great, lots of options. The owner, Lucy was very friendly and helpful. She was at the B&B from 8-6 every day I was there and always asked how you were and if she help you with anything.
