I recently stayed in this Bed & Breakfast for a week and really enjoyed my stay. The vintage looking rooms feel like they're out of a movie. All rooms and facilities are very clean, however, old. Don't expect any contemporary features or 5-star service. The staff is friendly and helpful but their office hours are usually very short, only 9am to 4pm most of the time, so if you have any questions or requests after that time you have to wait until the next day.
Breakfast falls a little short as there isn't really much choice but they recently added a few items such as bred and juices. Personally, I don't mind as I don't eat much breakfast anyways. But I can understand that some people do.
This Bed & Breakfast is suitable if you're on a business trip, solo, or travel as a couple. It's not really made for families or groups of friends.
The location is Downtown Toronto, in the northern part right outside of Dupont Station which makes commuting into the city core very convenient and easy. For example, it takes about 15 minutes down to King Street West and about the same time to the Eaton Centre.
Bottom line, Castlegate Inn is a friendly, clean little Bed & Breakfast with a cosy vintage flair. I recommend you ask for 2nd floor rooms as they are really cool. Keep in mind though, this is an old building and so are the rooms.
I hope this review helped a little bit in making your decision.
