Reviewed 6 December 2013

Arrived on a freezing day at the end of November to be welcomed by Ziggy. A really good place I had the room at the back overlooking the garden and away to the park. This has a really fantastic bed in there huge compared to what a hotel would offer, and not many 4 posters in hotels either. I had the shared bathroom but no one else was on the floor so it was all to myself. A room as well for making tea or coffee, with a good selections of teas as well.

The breakfast both mornings there was fantastic and set me up for the rest of the day, a really good selection and a great omelette. A good location for getting around from where they are as well easy to get the subway buses or street cars in that general area.

Overall a really good experience thanks for the welcome and not only that I have managed to get my wallet back. It was handed in at a police station so good on the people of Toronto.

Also the cheapest and not really that slow way to get here from the airport is get the Rocket bus from the arrivals level of terminal 3 (it also goes from terminal 1) At terminal 3 walk out and down towards the left till you get to pillars C8 to C12 and you will see the bus stop. The 192 goes fast to Kipling about 15 minutes I guess it was.

I then took the subway to Keele and a couple of minutes walk to the B&B. All of that for $3.50 just have the right change when you get on the bus and get a transfer from the driver.

Room Tip: The only thing I had was the room was warm because of the hot air system and the freezing temperatur...

We have stayed at By the Park B&B on two occasions in the last six months. Each time, our room has been comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated. Margo and Ziggy were very friendly and welcoming hosts and provided many good tips on restaurants and other amenities in the area. Our second stay at 92 Indian Grove included an excellent breakfast. The B&B is very well located close to the Keele subway station and beautiful High Park. We would highly recommend By the Park B&B and plan to stay there again. Mary & Bruce

I and my husband stayed at the By the Park B&B in summer of 2012 for the first time. As we needed to come back to Toronto last September, it was out of question for us to stay in another B&B or hotel because we found this place to be the most welcoming and friendly guesthouse we have ever stayed while not at home. Margo and Ziggy surround you with cordial affability from the first meeting at the front door to leave-taking. There are also two little lovely dogs and a charming cat greeting visitors and adding coziness.
92 Indian Grove is beautifully restored house with dark woodwork and peaceful atmosphere. Everything is clean and comfortable. Healthy vegetarian breakfast is freshly prepared and served with smile.
The location is perfect: subway in five minute walk, High Park, restaurants and shops in walking distance.
We recommend By the Park B&B very highly and as for us, we will definitely return to this guesthouse next time we visit Toronto.

I went to Toronto for a quick get away. Margo and Ziggy were welcoming and thorough in giving me a quick review of the neighborhood and its resources. The houses are across the street from one another. The subway system in Toronto is nice and just across the way. Had a lovely stay!

This is a very nice bed and breakfast with a great location. It is in a very nice and safe neighborhood yet close to enough to shops and mass transportation. The rooms are very clean and homey. The outside environment include a well tended garden with a very comfy porch for sitting and enjoying the day.

The Daisy Room at the By The Park B&B was perfect for our weekend getaway to the Royal Winter Fair etc.
Convenient - easy to get to from the north - Hwy 400 and even easier from the south - QEW/Lakeshore Blvd. The parking arrangement was excellent. Access to the TTC both during regular hours and after-hours was a matter of a few minutes.
Clean - our room and en-suite were spotless as was the shared kitchenette.
Comfortable - very!
The neighbourhood is wonderful - quiet side streets and a good selection of neighbourhood pubs and even a Latin Jazz Bar just around the corner on Bloor.
It's just a very nice place to stay.

p.s. Just one note - if we were going to spend more time in our room than we did on this trip, we would take one of the larger suites.

I spent 2 nights at the High Park Suites. I arrived to check in much, much later than anticipated due to bridge traffic. Ziggy kindly stayed up until I arrived, and communicated with me as I was en route to make sure I found the place. He was extremely accommodating in getting me checked in, and helpful in suggesting easy routes to downtown and nearby features.

I had only 2 nights in Toronto, but they were restful and comfortable thanks to the clean, quiet room. The fridge in the room made a little hum/buzz noise, but it was very convenient for drinks. The Daisy Suite is perfect for a solo traveler or a couple.

Thank you for staying with us. We understand that travel time can be unpredictable. This winter we are planing on some renovations that would remove the fridges from the bedrooms. That would make the bedrooms more enjoyable. Have a great winter season and hope to see you soon.
