We had such a wonderful time staying at By the Park Bed & Breakfast! The innkeepers, Margo & Ziggy were SO hospitable. We normally feel a little sense of dread going to sit at the breakfast table at B&B's because we've had some pretty bad stays, but here we really looked forward to it, they made us feel like we were family! They came out and talked to us as if we were old friends, made us feel very comfortable and right at home. In fact, the first day we arrived we had no Canadian money for the subway and Margo kindly lent us money from her own pocket!! They were both so helpful with where to go & what to do, it made our stay perfect! Not to mention we absolutely loved our room, the house, the location, the food and of course all the wonderful B&B animals!! The house is located in a perfect spot, and the park nearby is so beautiful! The food, especially the daily muffins, were delicious and just what we wanted to start our day. It was a treat to stay here and we will definitely be coming back here when we are in the Toronto area!! Thank you two for such a wonderful stay!!

You are always welcome. Bed and breakfast is a wonderful way to travel. At your breakfast table you meet people from all over the world, get the "scoop" on the place from the local people and yes, meet our pets-Fendi, Bailea and April. See you next time.

I can very much recommend By The Park to anyone wanting a great place to stay while in Toronto.The B&B is located in a good area near restaurants,shops and the subway.You can park your car for free avoiding paying high parking charges elsewhere. The room was excellent and decorated to a high standard. The breakfasts were great and the food cooked to order.The owners are a nice couple who have got a lot of local knowledge and are very happy to tell you the best places to visit. I would definately stay here again and advise anyone who likes high standards and good service to book a room,you wont be disapointed.

I stayed at By The Park for a night while visiting my son in Toronto. I stayed in the "Garden View" room, which was beautiful. A large room with a large four poster bed. This room does not have a private bathroom as you share a bathroom with one other room. I did not find this a problem at all. The bathroom was very nice, all brown marble.
The breakfast was very good, being crepes made to perfection the day I stayed.
Ziggy recommended a local Thai restaurant to eat in the evening. It is only a five minute walk and it was very good as well.
I highly recommend this B&B if staying in the Toronto area.
Word of advice, you will most likely need a rental car to see the sights.
I will definitely be back to stay in the future.

Room Tip: Garden View is beautiful.

Thank you for staying with us. Garden View bedroom is a beautiful and sunny bedroom overlooking the back garden. It shares the large marble bathroom with just one other bedroom, never more than 4 guests in total. We do also have the main floor powder room for our guests use.
Keele subway station is just 3 minutes walk and most of our guests leave their cars on our driveway and take the public transit. You can explore the city so much more when you are on foot and public transit. Have great autumn and see you soon.

We had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights recently, we were very impressed by the amenities, we had a comfortable bed and good size room. Ziggy and Margo were very hospitable and the breakfast was very good. Very close to the subway which made it easy to get into the city and places. If we ever came back to Toronto we would stay again.

I spent a little over a week at By the Park and was fully satisfied in all aspects. The surrounding neighborhood was very nice with several places nearby-quick food, a coffee place, and a subway all within a block. The couple who own the place are very welcoming, and keep their rooms clean and tidy with several great amenities-television, free WiFi, books, parking, etc. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, and none of the neighbors were bothersome at all. I only spent time sleeping in the room, but it was a quiet and comfortably lovely place to stay while I was visiting the city. I highly recommend By the Park!
