My husband and I chose this accommodation in Toronto because it was centrally relocated (which it was). It was within easy walking distance to Yonge Street which is the heart of the city. It was also within easy access of the TTC subway, and easy access to connection services to almost any part of the city.
We stayed in the 'White Room' which was located in the basement of the property. The bed was comfortable and the room was decorated in a rather mondain fashion (rather like a batchelor pad than a guest room). We were also disappointed in the maintenance and cleanliness of the bathroom, it could have been much better. The shower stall basin was split and the shower head was leaking badly. The bathroom looked 'tired' and in need of TLC. The airconditioning system was rather noisy making it difficult to sleep. My husband also found that when using the guest house computer he got a virus sent to his email address and to others in his address book. In our opinion we thought that the computer security needed to be better.
The breakfast was of the continential fashion and entirely self service, which was fine.
After returning from a day trip and finding we accidently left the keys in our room we tried to contact the proprietor to get the spare key. Two numbers where called (one 'emergency' number and the other a mobile number) and still we couldnt get the proprietor - we ended up having to stay in a nearby hotel for the night. On the plus side of this matter we did get that night refunded by the owner.
Overall we liked the location best of all and least liked was the bathroom facilities (ie shower cleanliness and condition).
I would not consider staying at this accommodation again and we think if there was a maybe in the 'would you recommend.....' (below), it would be a better choice. Its not a place one could be romantic but rather a place to stop for the night and go.
The last mention has to go to the cat Jessie - adorable, friendly and very inviting.
