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.
