“Will certainly visit again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

My sister, who was visiting from England, and I stayed at the b and b in late October. I stayed in the Victorian and my sister was in the Garden View. The rooms were beautiful and spotlessy clean. Beautiful dining room for breakfast and extremely friendly hosts. It was the perfect place for us as my children all live in Toronto and I have already booked for Christmas.

We have stayed at By the Park Bed and Breakfast twice this year, and have loved it on both occasions. So easy to reach from our home in Burlington, and car parking right in the driveway. the couple who run this home are lovely to have conversation with over coffee and omelettes in the morning. All of the breakfast so fresh and tasty! Thanks so much, we will be back, we love your friendly home!

I enjoyed my weeks stay at Indian Grove very much. The Garden View room is beautiful and the shared bathroom is one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. I would mention that you also have the use of a very nice lounge and there is also a communal room upstairs complete with kettle, microwave and fridge, as well as a good variety of coffees and teas. You can really make yourself at home. Much thanks to Margo and Ziggy for the very nice breakfasts.

We stayed in the Willow room (not the b&b)...we could not have chosen better. The entire place is absolutely immaculate, the owner friendly and accommodating! just a quick walk to the subway...and then with a day-ticket all the city transportation was quick and convenient to all points in Toronto. We only have praise for our gracious host!

We have stayed at By the Park Bed & Breakfast twice in the last year and a half. The accommodations are wonderful. We park our car in the driveway and then use the subway, which is a five minute walk away, to get to all that Toronto has to offer: museums, Chinatown, downtown, Harbor Front, etc. If you enjoy nature, High Park is a short walk away. In the winter, bring your ice skates--it is a 15 minute walk to the outdoor skating rink in High Park. The delicious breakfasts, the atmosphere of the century home, and the hospitality of Margo and Ziggy, all add to the charm of your stay.

Thank you for a moment of your time. High Park neighbourhood with the park itself is a gem in a such a large city as Toronto. Sometime it feels like we are in a small village and yet with the subway 2 minutes away for a quick ride to the center, all the stores, restaurants within a short stroll we have all conveniences. Park -all 400 acres of it, it is wonderful year round-as you said bring the skates or bathing outfit depending on the season.

We visited the Toronto Guest Suites in Roncesvalles Avenue in August this year (2013) staying in Wisteria for the second time as we visit our Son who is resident in Toronto every other year and we simply cannot fault the property for its cleanliness and accessability to the surrounding area with its excellent transport links to the City.
Comfortable to live in despite being on a busy street but nice and close to all shops, bars and restaurants we will no doubt visit again in 2015 when next we return to Canada.
After a week in the Kawartha Lakes we also stayed at the apartments in Indian Grove for a couple of nights prior to our flight home and again this property was comfortable and in a much quiter area of the city but with easy access to High Park. Look forward to 2015!!

As always a pleasure to have you stay with us. Roncesvalles Village is the hottest neighborhood in Toronto with its independent restaurants, coffee shops and 2 (!) independent bookstores. Have to mention the Revue Cinema-an neighborhood movie theatre as well. Looking forward to your next visit.

This B&B is part of a complex of accommodations run by the same couple. Although some units have breakfast included, we chose one which was self catering. i.e three bedrooms using a common kitchenette. The area and street is lovely, with big old homes in which we were situated. The host took us to show us where we could park, and how to access our room. our bedroom was small but had everything one could wish for. We had our own fridge. Lots of place in the ensuite bathroom to place our toiletries, something many hotels do not supply. In the kitchenette are is a list of telephone numbers for cabs etc. They have thought of everything. We were only there overnight but enjoyed our stay. There is free wifi, however, we did not use it this time around.

So glad you found our home comfortable and our location convenient. Perhaps next time you can stay a day or two longer end explore all the High Park, Roncesvalles Village and Bloor Wets Village can offer. Thank you again and hope to see you soon.
