Ashbury House front view summer

ASHBURY HOUSE IN OTTAWA IS CLOSED.  We will be REOPENING in Spring, 2022 at a new location — in the hills of central Sri Lanka — minutes from Kandy — the hub of numerous things to see and do.  We can be contacted at info@ashburyhouse.com and 1-613-780-9191 on Whatsapp, Telegram and Signal.  This WEB SITE WILL BE UPDATED when we reopen.

HERE’S OUR TRACK RECORD: According to guest comments on TripAdvisor and Google, guests like:

  • Our gourmet breakfasts, including those that meet their dietary needs
  • The stimulating and diverse conversations around the breakfast table
  • The warm apple pie and tea when they arrive
  • The comfortable rooms and beds
  • The attentive and engaging hospitality
  • The large charming historic house – some say the dining room, with lit candles, feels like a grand room in a chateau
  • Our location — only a few blocks (walking distance) from interesting shops, health clubs, restaurants, pubs, pharmacies, hair salons, grocery stores, churches, bike paths and the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) — plus, close to Parliament, the national art gallery and several national museums
  • The garden fresh pepper that we sell (more about the pepper)

Don’t take our word, go to Google and TripAdvisor

We have many guests who have stayed with us numerous times since we opened in 2000.  We also get many referrals.

We’ve had guests from all over the world and from many walks of life including a clergy from Windsor Castle and a BBC film crew who were en route to “live” with wolves in the Canadian Arctic for several months. 

A word about us: Charmaine graduated from Cambridge University and then worked and traveled in over 40 countries while she was with the World Bank — prior to us starting the B&B 20 years ago. George received a PhD for solving a well-known 25-year-old mathematics problem, helped put Canada’s robotic arm on the Space Station and has been in the change leadership business for many years.  We’ve been blessed with many rewarding experiences such as meeting up with our former guests while we travel and when we help the less fortunate in Sri Lanka.
