By The Park Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 119 Toronto B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2013

The Park was very convenient for my visit to Toronto, and visiting relatives in the area. The B&B very close to the subway line so you can get to downtown quickly if you want and to the airport by subway/bus. Roncesvalles is very close (easy walking distance) also for shopping, eating and great pubs to relax in. I was surprised at the ease, friendliness and well-kept environment of The Park and will recommend it to others that are traveling to Toronto for a visit. Also each group of rooms has a shared kitchenette that is very handy to have a cup of tea or snack at the end of the day and rooms have a small fridge to keep water cold.

Room Tip: I had the Daisy room in the basement which was nice and cool during the day in sweltering August.

Thank you Doug. Our location is very convenient . We are 20 km from Pearson International Airport. You can get to our home by car in 20 min (providing you do not hit the traffic) or 40 minutes by public transit (great deal for just $3). Downtown is just as short subway ride as well and Keele subway station is just 3 min walk. And as you mentioned-shopping, Roncesvalles Village, Bloor West Village and High Park are within easy walk from our home.

My boyfriend and me stayed at the B&B By the Park for two nights. The location is great: It is a very quiet and beautiful road with an easy access to the subway (3 minutes). Margo and Ziggy were very helpful and their service (breakfast etc.) was excellent. The house itself is furnished very nice and everything was like it was shown on the photos. Everyone has free wifi and a parking place.
We couldn't have find a better place to stay in Toronto!

Thank you Carolin. It was pleasure to have both of you stay with us. Glad to hear you enjoyed our breakfast-vegetarian or vegan, home cooked every morning. Our signature vegan muffins are baked fresh and served hot from the oven. Veggie omelette, French toast, pancakes or eggs any style are some of the dishes we serve.
Hope to see you back soon.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the High Park Suites at 89 Indian Grove. It was great! We stayed on the top floor, in the Willow room. It was very clean (and we are very picky), well appointed, and had a kitchenette right outside to share with the other guest room on the top floor. This is a self-catered suite as opposed to the B&B that Ziggy and Margo operate across the street, but we didn't mind at all. There is a Tim Hortons 1/2 a block away which makes grabbing coffee in the morning easy.
We primarily choose to stay in this area as it was very close to friends we were visiting. But I would stay at this location again as it's access to downtown Toronto is so easy. The Keele subway station is 1 block west, or you can pick up a tram 2 blocks east off Dundas West.
The room was very quiet and having ample FREE parking for your rental car can't be beat!
Also, you can tell the owners work hard to make you feel comfortable. I asked Ziggy for a different hairdryer, as I found the first one not blowing strong enough, and another was put in my room immediately. Thanks!!!

Thank you for staying with us and the wonderful review. We are trying our best to have all gusts comfortable. Self catering suites/bedrooms are very popular as they come with private/shared kitchenettes. With many people having different dietary needs, each can cater to their particular diet. We are also glad that we can offer free parking for our guests at all of our locations-big bonus in the large city like Toronto. Thanks again, you are welcome to stay anytime.

I stayed at By The Park B&B (Roncesvalles accommodation) with my husband and two daughters in August for 5 nights. Our 2-bedroom accommodation was the Mimosa Suite. The house and the accommodation are immaculate, furnitures are brand new. Being on fashionable Roncesvalles is very convenient, there is a supermarket within 5 minutes walking distance, restaurants, cafés, and there is a street-car stop just in front the house. We will certainly stay here again when visiting my sister, and would highly recommend this location !

Very handy for the metro in Toronto. It was a lovely room with kitchenette. Previous reviews are accurate and speak for themselves. We're stayed in the self catered rooms not the B and B. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and a supermarket is also nearby.

We stayed at By The Park 8/3/13-8/4/13 and were so pleased I can't express myself. Our host and Hostess were most helpful and friendly. The room itself was beautifully appointed and we were made to feel very welcome. The neighborhood and Toronto are super. Hope to go back.

We stayed at the By the Park B and B for three nights.
Our first consideration was the location: it was exactly where we wanted to be, close to our daughter and the beautiful High Park.
Second was comfort: for us it was extremely comfortable, clean and quiet.
Third, price; very reasonably priced for a room with kitchen, bath and sitting room.
A place that meets all these criteria is very hard to find in a city like Toronto.
Many thanks Margot and Ziggy for the beautiful home away from home.
