Unfortunately my husband became very ill on the very first evening of our stay and was hospitalized so much of my time was spent at the hospital. However, Cathy and her wonderful staff did everything possible to provide support and comfort to me during that time and this lovely inn became a refuge where I could relax and recharge as...

The Albert House Inn is a truly amazing find - tucked away in a great location for walking around Ottawa, this friendly small hotel would be hard to beat. From the super warm welcome on arrival, together with directions to several local eateries, to the stand-out amazing freshly cooked breakfasts each morning, this really excelled in all areas.

Excellent room, comfortable bed, jacuzzi bath in our room. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice cooked to order. Hotel within walking distance of Parliament buildings and By Ward district. On direct bus route from airport (stop just across road). Hotel retains lots of original features. Overall, highly recommended

It felt like visiting your grandmothers' house with several classic and elegant touches to furniture and decor and so it had that homey feel. Staff serving breakfast were all very cheery and friendly. Everything we had was delicious - eggs, pancakes, sausages and Wild blueberry pancakes. It was quiet in our room even though we were there for Blues Festival.

The room was comfortable and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. Best blueberry pancakes, ever. A very good selection of hot breakfast items, all cooked to order. Homemade muffins and continental breakfast items also available. Coffee and tea available in the lounge when kitchen is closed. The room had a shower, so if a tub is needed, inquire when making reservations....
