The room was great, with a comfy bed, TV, etc. The house itself is beautiful, with a nice garden at the back. The breakfast was excellent and certainly a highlight: pancakes, eggs, cereals, breads... Everything you wish for with great quality and service. The banting house is everything a B&B should be.

The Banting House is in a very central location, you can walk almost everywhere and easily get to know the city. The rooms are very individual, with lovely, hand-picked decoration and very comfortable beds! Best part for me was the fantastic breakfast at the big table (try the fresh pancakes with fruit!) where you can easily make contact to other... More

Okay, so first up: most of the reviews mention this guy Scott who I presume was away on holidays. The only person I met was Raffael (sp?) who elevated this place from a 'very good' review to an 'excellent' one. He was very amiable, interesting and attentive and although apparently only there for something like one or two months seemed... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Banting House. It is a neat old building and decorated with a bunch of awesome antiques. We stayed in the Banting room which was on the second floor. We had our own bathroom and own own private balcony which was nice. Some of the other rooms had to share a bathroom. The location... More

What a great find this was through the power of Tripadvisor! Scott is a fantastic host - very relaxed in his style and couldn't do enough to help settle me into Banting House and make the most of my first Trip to Toronto. He even drew me a map for each day with suggested places to wander around and soak... More

I needed a place for one night in Toronto and totally improvised my reservation based on a quick web search. How lucky was I! Of course this is not the standard hotel, it's an old house, not all bedrooms have a private bathroom, but the room was amazingly nice. The atmosphere was great and the breakfast shared on the unique... More

We stayed here for three nights. Scott, the owner, was happy to meet us at a time that was convenient for us (we arrived mid morning), and was very friendly and helpful, suggesting good restaurants in the local area. The hotel is not in downtown Toronto, but is in walking distance to Yonge Street and the University, with restaurants very... More

I stayed at the Banting House Inn with my 6 and 9 year old sons during their Spring Break in March 2014. Scott, the owner, was just incredibly welcoming and warm during our stay from the moment we arrived! I was initially a little worried that having two little rambunctious boys in a beautiful old B&B wouldn't work so well,... More

We had wonderful stay for 4 nights at Banting House. Scott was an excellent host with nothing being to much trouble. He provided us with some good tips on how to spend our time in the city and made amazing blueberry pancakes for breakfast! The house itself is large and beautifully decorated and we were given free run of the... More

We really loved staying here. Scott was very welcoming and gave us great advice about what to see and do in Toronto. The house is absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was amazing - best pancakes ever. The neighbourhood was great - some nice restaurants and bars around and a friendly atmosphere. We walked everywhere without problem. I doubt you can find anywhere... More
