“Fabulous place to stay in central Toronto!”
Reviewed 22 December 2010

This is a great B&B. The hospitality is appreciated. The rooms are spotless and the beds are comfortable. We don't stay anywhere else in Toronto. Great value as well as a great location, right on the Bloor subway line. Park for free and take public transit 1/2 a block a way.

We stayed here 6 nights and could have stayed longer. By the Park is a lovely B&B. It feels very much like a home. We had been traveling for 3 weeks when we arrived here and were so glad for its location. Just outside the citiy's hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, the area is very residential. However, it is just one block from the metro ( a 15 minute ride into the city centre) and there are wonderful restaurants nearby. Not to mention the beautiful High Park also just a block away. Margo and Ziggy are wonderful hosts. They had lots of information and suggestions for us and we always enjoyed a terrific breakfast and interesting morning conversation. In the week we were there, we saw pretty much everything in Toronto that we had wanted to see, but would have stayed longer just to relax at the lovely B&B. We have already decided that when we next go to that area of Canada, we will stay here again for a few days because it is such a lovely place. (P.S. We walked High Park in the morning before catching our plane and were treated to beautiful fall colors and raccoons!) Be sure to have Ziggy or Margo explain their public transit system. It works like a charm. Didn't need our car at all.

Our first experience staying at a Bed and Breakfast. It was a nice surprise. Our room and bathroom were spotless. I was thrown off a little that there was not breakfast offered (considering it's a bed and breakfast) but in their defense, it was written on the room description. If you want breakfast, you have to be in the main house. They were very nice when we arrived and did not seem to mind that we arrived a little earlier than anticipated.
Overall, it was a great experience.

We ended up booking at this B&B because our aunt and uncle recommended we stay with them while in Toronto for a wedding. The price was right so we agreed. Well it was a very nice surprise and we thoroughly enjoyed our two nights. A walk in nearby High Park was an added bonus, the colours were splendid. Margo & Ziggy were great hosts, excellent cooks and so very interesting to talk with. Will definitely be back and we'll bring our friends. J & S

....this place meets simply all your expectations...from cleanliness to the natural gracious service from the hosts Margo and Ziggo for a very competing price....so people if you need a place definitely try this one.

I had a great stay at By the Park B&B; the area was close to my training within walking distance and I could prepare hot meals if desired and had all of the conveniences of a hotel room plus access to a fully stocked kitchen.

The property is beautifully decorated with fresh greenery and trees/shrubs; truly a relaxing and comfortable stay. The price was very reasonable and accessible to any grocery, fashion, and restaurant needs; all within walking distance. Definitely planning to return next time I'm in Toronto!

Thanks again!

By The Park sets the standard by which all B&Bs should follow. Thoroughly enjoyable stay, the Victorian suite is an elegantly furnished room with large 4 poster King size bed and luxury ensuite . Lovely breakfast with fresh tea and orange served by your host. Quick connection by subway to the downtown area takes about 15 minutes even in rush hour. Would I come back, yes, would I recommend this B&B, a resounding yes.
