“Just what we hoped for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2008

We just returned from three nights at Butterfingers and had such a great stay that I was compelled to write my first TripAdvisor review. Justin and Caroline are perfect hosts--down to earth, helpful, friendly, knowledgeable. We loved their restaurant recommendations and their delicious and hearty breakfasts. (I tend to choose B&Bs based on the reviews of the breakfasts, because I like a hearty/tasty meal before a day of sightseeing.) We wanted to explore the city on foot and were able to from the B&B, we felt perfectly safe walking back at night, and we slept better than we do in most hotels. I like B&Bs for their intimacy and personal touches (and, once again, those breakfasts!), but I'm not one for country decor. Justin and Caroline have created a lovely, modern aesthetic--from the furniture to the bathroom fixtures to the decorations. And I'm always impressed by thoughtful extra touches, which here include nice bath products, bottled water, and truffles. I know we'll try to book a stay here again if we have occasion to return to Toronto. Thanks for a great stay!

If you've found it, book it and don't even think about staying somewhere else.

I travel a lot with work and am well used to staying in 5* hotels like the Malmaison chain and, without wanting to sound like a spoiled princess, my expectations are high. And I was utterly delighted by my stay at Butterfingers - the house is beautiful, the breakfasts are amazing and Caroline and Justyn are perfect hosts.

The house is in a really good location - about 15mins walk from the centre of town, with a tram stop on the corner, or a $8 cab ride home (about £4) if it all gets too much or too hot. But you won't want to go downtown - there's a great pub and coffee shop over the road and a gorgeous neighbourhood a 10 minute stroll away, full of cafes, cool little shops and bars.

And that's all if you can actually leave the house. It is decorated beautifully (but not intimidatingly) and is full of the kind of personal touches that you'd give your good friends (like books by the bed, candles and magazines).

I stayed for 6 nights and felt as though I'd been at a spa for a week and I'm already planning my next visit. Highly recommended.

We stayed in this lovely house at the beginning and at the end of our round trip through Canada. Although we knew that this means the end of our holidays we were looking forward to return to the Butterfinger's B&B during our journey. Not only the house is cozy and at the same time stylish and the breakfast is delicious but also the hosts are so nice and helpful - we felt amazingly welcome and were so comfortable in their house.
We stayed in both rooms they offer to guests and both of them are absolutely perfect. They are spacious, comfortable, very clean and the bed guarantees sweet dreams.

The house is situated between downtown and the Queen Street with all the restaurants and bars for an exciting night. So every major attraction that Toronto offers can be reached in a walk.

The best refreshment for the days in Toronto is the breakfast from this B&B. Bacon sandwich, scrambled eggs, pancakes, cereals, coffee, tea, fresh orange juice and - the best of all - a huge fruit salad.

When we return to Toronto there will be only one place where we stay!

My wife and I looked for a quite place close to the city centre of Toronto to start our two weeks vacation in Canada. We found this place on the internet and were already attracted by their stylish website.
Butterfingers is perfectly located close to downtown Toronto (also only 2min. walk to street car (tram) on Queen St E) and in walking distance to Distillery Historic District.
The owners, the young couple Caroline and Justin are perfect hosts; they do everything to comfort their guests. Their breakfast is delicious and the presentation (Justin’s hobby) is mouth watering.
Their two rooms are very tastefully decorated and so is the rest of the house. We stayed in The Nook with its beautiful private bathroom and separate sitting room. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
