I recently stayed at the House on McGill during my week in Toronto. I found everything about the house to be a perfect fit for me. I would not hesitate to stay there again and have recommended it to colleagues looking for a nice place in the downtown area. The location is great, easy to get to and close to public transportation (bus, streetcar and subway). The house itself has many unique traits and a nice warm feeling. It's an easy walk to restaurants and shopping.
It was great to have breakfast (continental; cereals, fruit, pastries, juice, coffee, etc.) put out every morning. Everything in the house (my room, bathrooms and common areas) were always clean and well cared for. Several of the days I was there I stayed in and used the internet to work. The owner was always helpful and a gracious host. I could see how much work he does to make sure his guests are comfortable.
To address some comments in other reviews;
> The breakfast is continental. If your B&B expectations require that you have a home cooked, sit down meal served to you, you can probably find it elsewhere.
> There is a charge if you stain or damage towels or linens. The house has good quality towels. Don’t spill wine in your room, use your bath towel to clean up the mess and expect not to pay for the towel. The fact that the owner had to put this policy in place means that more than a few guests leave towels/linens damaged in a way that they are no longer acceptable quality to use for other guests.
> Depending on the time of your arrival the host may not be able to greet you in person. Excellent instructions are provided so when you arrive you can get into the house and make yourself at home. House on McGill is a place you can treat like it’s your own. You don’t have a host hovering over you. Again, if that is the B&B experience you want/expect you can probably find it elsewhere.
> The house is clean. It’s a different owner than previously. I don’t know when the ownership changed but keep that in mind when reading reviews.
> Some of the reviewer pictures show a cat in the house. I was there a full week and never saw a cat or any evidence of one. I think those pictures might be from the previous owner.
