This used to be my favourite place to stay in Toronto. I made reservations for this past weekend through the website, but when I arrived my key wasn't in the mailbox as per usual - instead the box was packed full of unretrieved mail. We tried the door and it opened into a dark, empty, gutted building that was clearly... More

My mom and I stayed at this cozy B&B the weekend when she was travelling. At first we had a mix up with the reservation and my mother insisted that we will not share the bathroom. So Raphael gave up the Upper Canada room which was a suite in the basement, it was quiet and clean and accessible. The host... More

Appalling experience. We booked this a few months ago for a quick stay in the city. Everything was confirmed and communication was good. However when we got there no one answered the door and no key was left for us as promised. We tried calling the owners several times with no luck. Eventually the neighbours told us that the place...

Beware! We were here for 3 nights. The first 2 nights were great, but on the third night, after being gone all day, we came home to a U-haul truck outside and the place had been emptied! We spent the night alone, we were scared because we didn't know what was going on, and the place had been emptied except... More

The location of the inn was perfect, it was within walking distance to the gay village and to public transportation system [both the underground and the streetcars]. Despite its convenient location, it was located on a relatively quiet street that allowed for a peaceful night's sleep. The room was fairly spacious, we were in the Banting room, and the bed...

Stayed in The Banting room which was very spacious, clean and comfortable and with its own en suite bathroom. The location of the house is excellent, only 30mins walk to downtown Toronto. We made use of the on site parking which was good. A special mention has to be made of Raphael's superb blueberry pancakes at breakfast. We found a... More

Banting House Inn is a nice, beautiful and spacious old house in the city centre of Toronto, a house embodying the spirit and character of the early twentieth century thereby creating a quiet and cosy atmosphere within the bustling and lively town centre. Every room has a different arrangement and shows a style of its own bestowing on the guests... More

This was my first B&B experience. When I first walked in, I was skeptical because I am used to the routine hotel experience. Once I warmed up to the Banting House, I would stay at a B&B and the Banting House again. Parking and wifi were free, which was a plus, but the wi-fi does not make it to all... More
