“Wonderful hosts, excellent B&B”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

Paulanne and David are excellent hosts, giving us outstanding tips on scenic walks and drives. They went out of their way to make us feel very welcomed. The Ashcroft House is in immaculate condition - they take great pride in their B&B and it shows.

Room Tip: The Wedgwood room offers a glimpse of the water.

Everything was wonderful.... Food was AMAZING! Innkeepers were very helpful with where to go for fun and meals. Great time!
We actually traveled in September 2011 but it would not let me go back that far.

We were delightfully surprised and more than pleased that Ashcroft House B&B proved to be a beautiful Heritage home without all the creaks and squeaks in the floors and guest noises from adjacent rooms. Ashcroft house has been nicely renovated to provide quiet and updated comfortable rooms while retaining the period architecture of a very lovely older home. It is well looked after. David and Paulanne are delightful hosts who looked after every detail to make sure our stay was a pleasurable one. Located one block from Mile "0" of the TransCanada Highway and Beacon Hill Park on a cliff overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca makes it a wonderful location. They are also located close to the downtown area. Breakfasts were excellent with lots of variety and the bed was comfortable and cozy with a lovely duvet.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sheldon room - nicely appointed.

After researching various B&B's in the center of Toronto, we found the Ashcroft House. It had glowing reviews, and helped us to decide to try it for two nights. Our room with en suite was in this charming old home. Cleanliness is a top priority in this B&B, and was evident all the way through. After a quiet night, we were treated to a lovely gourmet breakfast by the owner. The rate, although a bit higher than some other B&B's in the area, is comparable to some of the better downtown hotels. We found it well worth it, and would stay again.

The Ashcroft House is a lovely heritage house in a neighbourhood of similar vintage. Paulanne and David are exemplary hosts and serve up a delectable breakfast. The breakfast is served at 9 a.m. which was late for our plans. Paulanne put together a substantial 'bag' breakfast for us which was very kind of her. The second day of our stay we had time to linger and enjoy the cooked breakfast. I would say, due to the late breakfast time, you should stay here if your schedule is very leisurely and involves going out later than 10:00 or 10:30 a.m. to start your day.

One of the many reasons I love this B&B is that the hosts are so accommodating to people with allergies. I am a vegetarian with several food allergies, and the Ashcroft House accommodated this without hesitation. I was served a generous 4 course breakfast for the 4 days of our stay.
At each breakfast you start with muesli /granola/ yogurt, followed by sliced mixed fresh fruit, then homemade baking (with extra to take with you for the day!), and then a hot meal such as: stuffed French toast with toasted pecans and sautéed apples, or Lemon Belgian waffles topped with fresh blueberries, or scrambled eggs with goat cheese and black bean & spinach salad – just to name a few examples. We were always full well into supper time!
We stayed in the beautiful and spacious Sheldon room with a wonderful king size bed. The bed in this room is so unbelievably comfortable! This room also has two comfortable chairs to lounge and read, or rest your legs. The bathroom is bright and cheery with a large shower, and very clean! This room is also lovely because of its large windows which allow lot’s of light during the day, yet it has substantial curtains to block out light to sleep. We loved this room‼

This is the first b & b I have ever stayed in which I could not fault in ANY way. The rooms were scrupulously clean, the beds comfy and the breakfast was to die for. Paulanne was an excellent host. On our second day, we had to leave really early before breakfast was served. We were given a hamper full of goodies which lasted the four of us for two days!! Fantastic!!!

Room Tip: My friends had a double room "Cotswold" and I had twin bedded room "Canterbury"...
