It was a great experience staying here. Jamie is very welcoming and his breakfast, which are different from day to day, are amazing and very substantial! Our room was lovely with a very big balcony overlooking a little garden. It's a 15 minute walk to the centre.

Another incredible stay with amazing hosts!

This past weekend was our third stay at A Seaton Dream B&B. Every time we have stayed has been fantastic, and this time was no exception. Jamie's breakfasts are well-prepared, flavorful, and different each morning. Jamie and Alan go out of their way to make you feel at home and are willing to offer great suggestions for restaurants or touring around Toronto. The beds are comfortable and the rooms clean and well-decorated. We've stayed in both rooms on the second floor, and enjoy the large jetted tub in the front-facing room, and the lovely balcony in the other room. The location is ideal -- walking distance to a number of great restaurants and shops on Parliament or other nearby streets, but quiet and peaceful on Seaton Street itself. Transit is easily accessible, as well -- either streetcar on Dundas or Parliament, or a bit further of a walk (10-15 minutes) to the subway.

Excellent place to stay in Toronto

An Absolute Dream of a B&B

5 on May 28, 2015

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at A Seaton Dream B&B. Jamie and Alan are very gracious hosts. We chose the back room with the balcony that overlooked the garden. Sitting out there with a bottle of wine was the perfect way to end the day after a busy day of Toronto site-seeing. Jamie's breakfasts tasted delicious, were beautifully plated, and were the perfect way to start the day. And spending time with the other B&B guests over breakfast was a delight. The neighborhood is charming. The B&B is within walking distance of the major Toronto neighborhoods, and the streetcar line is just up the block if you need to go further afield.

A wonderful gem in Cabbagetown

5 on May 24, 2015

This is a marvellous B&B in the Cabbagetown area -- within easy walking distance of two first-rate restaurants, The Irv and House on Parliament, and on a quiet, elegant street. You are a block away from a major Toronto attraction, the Allen Garden. The serenity of the B&B and the extraordinary breakfast round out your stay. If you're into B&Bs you will instantly know that you've found a gem.

Great stay in Toronto!

Outstanding B&B

I stayed with my wife and my parents in this B&B, we all loved it. Jamie is great and an awesome chef. The breakfast was delicious with different meals every day. The rooms are confortable and spacious, the house is clean, the location excellent, very close to the city center. When I'm Toronto again I'll stay here.

Très bon accueil

4.8 on October 31, 2014

Bien placé dans une rue calme et résidentiel tout en étant relativement proche du coeur de la ville, ce B&B apporte tout le nécessaire à un bon séjour à Toronto. L'accueil est très sympathique et le petit déjeuner excellent.

Terms and Conditions

  • Minimum Stay: Min. stay may apply in peak season. Please check on-line availability calendar.
  • Deposit Amount Required: A deposit equal to the cost of one night's accommodation will be applicable at the time of booking. Remaining nights will be charged at the time of arrival.
  • Cancellations: As we are easy going people we always worry that a cancellation policy can make us seem "strict" but we do hope you can understand that the "rules of the road" are necessary as we are ultimately running a business. So here goes: If you are required to cancel your reservation and provide us with at least 14 days notice we will only charge a $26.50 administration fee ($25 plus 5% tax). Deposits will not be refunded if a cancellation is received within 14 days of your arrival date. If you cancel on the day of check-in or are a "no show" you will be obligated to pay for the entire stay as origially booked (we hope you can appreciate that it is unlikely we could re-book the room at this point). We will send a confirmation e-mail of your reservation within 24 hours of receipt of your reservation request. If you do not receive a confirmation it is your obligation to contact us to ensure that the booking is confirmed. If you reserve a room and do not show up, stating that you "did not receive a confirmation" will not be an acceptable excuse. You will be liable to pay for the entire stay so please contact us if you do not receive a confirmation within 24 hours of booking. Did it sound too harsh? We hope not. We try to be as fair as we can.
