Banting hotel building has a historical character. It is clean, convenient located, and It offers excellent breakfast with meditation music. It was so peaceful, and you can feel like home. Landlord Rafael is very friendly. I love my room (Prairie), the bed was very comfortable.

was a bit of mixed emotions at first. It had been two years since my last stay and a few things had changed. Gone were the bathrobes that I used to curl up in while studying in my room in years gone by (and apologies to the poor woman who ran into me draped in my towel on the way... More

Horrible treatment by staff that got me so upset I left the B&B without even eating breakfast. Would never consider staying there again. Booking form said checkin till 9pm. Arrived at 8.30pm to find no staff. Message in envelope told me I'd been "upgraded to a semi-private attached bathroom". Turned out to be a dingy basement room ("Upper Canada"). Had... More

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
