“Unpleasant surprise”
Reviewed August 23, 2005

I have nothing against Toronto, but this particular establisment and scarey district did not work for us at all. There is a reason the owner has a male doberman and it seems this b and b is not quite cut from a Trisha Romance painting. I am not sure why there would be a b and b in that district.

We both prefer a cleaner setting and more enthusiastic service. I don´t know why there were so many good reviews for this place in March. The rooms are smaller than normal. The walls are thin.

At least the weather was pleasant...

Sadly that area of Toronto is not very safe right now. Time has caught up with at least that neighborhood!

The rooms are small, dark and dusty. The owner let guests know that even he would rather have gone out of the city for the summer.

Toronto has its good points, but for this price one might do much better and be in a more central pleasant area in a more upbeat establishment.

We were charmed by all the "extras",the B&B was like a museum of treasures and antiquies from around the world. The room and bed were very cozy and we shall be back to enjoy a cup of tea at breakie, that our host, Mr Pimblette made for us.

The house is a charming jumble filled with bric-a-brac - my bed was comfy and the ensuite bathroom was very nice. The location is quiet and charming, very accessible by public transport. However, the best thing about this place is the genuine friendliness of the innkeepers - can't wait to go back. It feels like visiting your favorite relatives.
