Very well located B&B. Lucie (host) was very nice. Room was tidy, and all that you needed to use was clean - bed linens, bath, toilet, sink (they even changed our towels every day without request). There was some dust on the rails on the walls, walls and ceiling were not all that clean, and some lamp shades should be...

We spent a wonderful long weekend in Ottawa. Despite the coldest weather of the year, we had a really good experience. The Inn is perfect, Lucy and the staff is really nice and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, as well as the washroom. Thank you, Rideau Inn!
