“Belated Review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

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.

We found the High Park Suites (we stayed in a basement room) very comfortable and clean. The bed in our room was huge, the shower room spotless and the pipes in the ceiling, mentioned in other reviews, did not bother my husband who is over 6ft tall. Margo and Ziggy were very welcoming and helpful. The location of the rooms at High Park is excellent for access to the city the waterfront and High Park and there are plenty of places very close by to get breakfast as well as lunch and dinner so you don't have to self-cater.

Four couples stayed at the High Park Suites. It was perfect for all of us as we each had a private bathroom which was very important! The rooms (Magnolia, Maple, Walnut and Willow) were spotless and the beds were very comfortable. A good size closet and bathroom with a hair dryer and shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. There was a small kitchen between the rooms with a small fridge, glasses, coffee maker etc. We had a wonderful time on the grand veranda where all 8 of us could meet and have a glass of wine before going out for dinner. Although we didn't have the breakfast option it was fine, as there were lots of little restaurants in the area. The location was perfect - Tim Horton's next door and the subway a block away. Also some really great restaurants and shops in the area. Margo and Ziggy were so helpful with recommendations. The price was very reasonable and the free parking was an added bonus. This was a great find and when we go back to Toronto for an overnighter, this will definitely be our "go to" place. All the previous reviews were bang on!

Room Tip: Perfect for couples travelling together!

Your group of friends was a pleasure to host. So glad you had a wonderful time on the front porch. You have to come back in the warmer weather and have some al fresco dining at our back garden.
See you next time.

We were looking for unique accomodations as we didn't want to stay at a Hilton or Marriott-type superchain on this leisure trip. By The Park B&B did not disappoint! You couldn't ask for a better location. We stayed in the Oak Suite and it had the perfect setup for two. It was very clean, the owners were such a joy, and the parking was perfect. Margo and Ziggy were very helpful in providing information on local restaurants and mass transit. We can't wait to visit Toronto again and book our next stay at the By The Park B&B!

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.
