I will write in French as we were a French family : 2 parents and 4 children in March 2016 :-) Tout était parfait. Christine est une hôtesse de première marque, très attentionnée, discrète mais joyeuse et aimant le contact avec ses hôtes. La maison est magnifiquement décorée et d'une propreté irréprochable. Quel plaisir de passer quelques nuits dans un B&B aussi raffiné. Et le top du top : le petit-déjeuner qui nous fait faire le tour du monde !!! Je ne vous en dirai pas plus... c'est un souvenir inoubliable ! MERCI Christine Sylvie, Daniel et les kids

The following review of Avalon Bed and Breakfast in Ottawa was posted to tripadvisor.com on 29 June 2010. What more can I say. Prior to arriving I was impressed by the look of the B&B on the website, and the price was fantastic. Upon arriving, Brock and Christine were incredibly hospitable and polite, but not overbearing. If you're looking for a great place to stay, within walking distance of a ton of notable points of interest, this is the place to go. Also, it's a great place to stay for a younger crowd.

Excellent Stay...

My Girlfriend and I stayed at Avalon BB after seeing the ad in googlemap. Christine accommodated the late checked in (asking me not to make noise as other guests would be resting) and the room was beautiful. Christine and Brock were very friendly and sat down with us for breakfast and made us feel truly at home. The place is impeccable, and no heavy scented as my girlfriend has allergies. We enjoyed ourselves very much and will stay again…! Adriana and Fabian
