It was a very nice, clean and orderly place. The location was very central, within walking distance to town, and it was a very quiet neighbourhood. The breakfast was excellent, and the room we had (double en suite) was flawless.

Great B & B located 20 mins walk from downtown Ottawa - ideal base for exploring the city. The host Maria was helpful and a wealth of information.. and she cooked a great breakfast! The rooms are good but overall the place could do with some modernisation - aside from that all was good and we would recommend it! ps...

I chose Ambiance B&B based on its good reviews and was not disappointed. Clean & comfortable rooms, friendly host, great breakfasts (especially the french toast), good location and onsite parking, meaning you can leave the car and explore Ottawa on foot.

I didn't know what to expect and it turned out to be very pleasant. Very good location, as a matter of fact I did not used my car during the whole weekend and I was able to walk everywhere. The breakfasts were sublime. Maria - the owner - was very polite and not intrusive in any way. In a nut...

I stayed for 3 nights, and had the room with its own bathroom. It is within easy walking distance of many of the main tourist attractions. Breakfasts were wonderful - different every morning, and times were flexible. The room was attractively decorated, and everything was clean. I would definitely stay here again. If you are driving, follow Maria's directions -...

Me and my husband stayed at Ambiance on our tour of eastern Canada, it is a great B & B, ideally situated for sightseeing. Maria is a great host and a wonderful cook, each day we were served a gourmet breakfast and enjoyed long chats at the dining table with Maria and fellow guests. Our room was spotlessly clean and...

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful victorian house which has been decorated with care to reflect the period it was built in. We immediately felt at home and particularly enjoyed the exceptional breakfasts (Maria used to run a restaurant). Daily discussions around the breakfast table were an added pleasure and sometimes lasted up til an...

An excellent bed and breakfast for a woman travelling alone - I arrived late due to other committments that evening and Maria had all the details worked out and had communicated well with me in advance so that I was able to find my way, feel safe and go straight to bed. The food was excellent, the breakfast conversation enjoyable...

Maria, is a really friendly host with a bubbly personality. She went out of her way to accomodate us. Breakfast is to die for! The room we had (with complete bathroom) was super clean and comfortable. There is no tv, but that is perfect to "unplug" for a weekend. Anything we might have forgotten at home was available to us...

“We had the room on the 3rd floor, the stairs are narrow and steep and the carpet is dated, and that is why we down-rated the room to average. The air conditioning worked fine.Although we didnt see them, we believe the rooms on the second floor have wood floors and would probly be nicer.”
