My husband & I have done quite a bit of travelling, and have always chosen 4 or 5 star resorts or hotels to stay at. However, for our recent trip to Toronto to take in a show at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club, we decided to try a local bed & breakfast for a change. I am so happy we decided to stray from our typical booking preference; otherwise, we would never have found this little jewel!!
This beautifully restored home is warm, inviting, comfortable, charming and luxurious. It is conveniently located just steps away from the wonderful food, drink and entertainment that the Little Italy district is famous for, just off College Street in Toronto. We easily walked everywhere we needed to go during our stay. And even if we had wanted to go downtown, it is only a short cab ride to the waterfront.
Roberta couldn't be a more welcoming and gracious hostess! She has many successful years of experience in the B&B industry, and you can see the pleasure and pride she takes in offering her guests anything they need to be comfortable and feel at home. She also gladly catered to my gluten & dairy free lifestyle, making wonderful breakfasts for me each day.
Our newly renovated, quiet, private 1 bedroom suite was located on the top (3rd) floor, and had its own full bathroom, full kitchen and even our own washer & dryer. The quality of the workmanship and furnishings used to restore this early 1900's home is evident, and adds to the luxurious feel of this building. We could not have been more comfortable at any 5 star hotel!
I highly recommend you stay at the Annex for your next stay in the Toronto area. We will most definitely be staying there again!!
Thanks Roberta and Staff!
