The breakfast was delicious with a choice of waffles, omelette, and various kinds of eggs. Australis Guest House is in walking... More

Brian and Carol are wonderful, experienced hosts who take great joy from hosting. They were exceptionally attentive to everything we asked for and then some, including weather updates, umbrellas, directions, and of course wonderful breakfast conversation. Highly recommended.

This house is in the Sandy Hill area of Ottawa, only a 20-minute walk to the Byward Market and downtown. The rooms are nice, the house is clean and well-appointed, and the hosts (Brian and Carol) are very friendly. Breakfasts were good and healthy. One quibble: my wife’s struggled to connect with the Wi-Fi with her iPad. Brian recognized this... More
