I have stayed here several times on business trips. This is the place to stay if you are in or near the Annex neighbourhood. It is close to College, a few minutes from Harbord and only a 10 minute walk to Bloor Street. Restaurants and life on College Street suits varied tastes. Not only has the house been lovingly restored using top quality materials and fixtures, it is more sound proof than most hotels you will stay in. Roberta is a gracious, engaging host and her breakfasts are fantastic. All the rooms are large, well appointed, have towel warmers in nicely appointed en suites. Tastelfu modern art adorns the walls..I only wish I had more time to linger.
