This is the best B&B I have ever been to in Toronto. I have been in this B&B a few times now. The hosts are very friendly, always available should you have any questions or concerns and prompt in service. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and very cozy and inviting. Both their houses I have been to have well-maintained beautiful garden with garden furniture for the guests to use. This B&B is also close to subway and buses and only 15 minutes to downtown. There are lots of shops around you can dine in or shop at and then go for a walk to Hyde Park which is just across the street from their place. Margo and Ziggy also make an excellent vegetarian breakfast. I recommended this B&B already to my friends and I personally will be returning over and over again.

A great find

4.4 on July 20, 2011

Extraordinarily clean and well-appointed rooms in two beautiful houses with great gardens like oases, very quiet location, very personable owners who also live on the premises and do all the work. Bedding is dried on a clothesline, other "green" features. I chose the Maple room, which had a large closet, flat screen TV, internet connection, fridge in an alcove that led to the large and spotless bathroom and to a fully equipped kitchen (the latter shared with the adjacent room). Everything is done with great care and attention to detail. I felt very comfortable and had nice chats with Margo, Ziggy and Halina, the resident owners. The location could not be better, across from High Park, bus and subway station at the corner, lots of stores and restaurants on Bloor for all your needs. The price can't be beat. I'll be back!

High Park Suites - excellent!

Stayed at High Park Suites over Christmas 2010. Margot and Ziggy were great hosts, very welcoming and friendly, and a great source of information on the area and Toronto on general. Room was a bit on the small side, but exactly what I expected from the photos - very well appointed, and spotlessly clean. Catering facilities were great, and again, spotless. Note, this location is self-catering - does not offer breakfast. Excellent location, very close to subway. Incredible value for the money in such a terrific location, and in a beautiful house.

Highlights - Welcoming accommodation, comfortable bed, quiet house and very clean. Kitchenette is well supplied. Great neighbourhood with high park for recreation, Bloor Village nearby for shopping and food, 1-minute walk to subway for access to city center, and close by access to Gardiner Expressway. Tidbits from experience - Water pressure in shower could be stronger and more reliable. Some noise from subway running on above ground tracks nearby is heard in room, but easily blocked out by bathroom fan at night when sleeping.

A wonderful place!

I chose this b&b after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and looking at the b&b website. It was such a pleasant experience that I stayed an extra night. The room was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom is luxurious (but be sure to ask them how the shower works). There is wireless in the room, but you can also use their computer downstairs. Breakfast was artistically presented. Margo and Ziggy are artists, discreet, but ready to be helpful. Ziggy met me in the driveway and carried my bags inside. When they heard I was a musician, they contacted their musician son for advice on violin shops. The place is really convenient to the metro line, an easy ride to downtown, but in an elegant, quiet neighborhood. If I come to Toronto again, I would definitely come back.

Nice place at a convenient location!

I stayed in Maple suite and it was nice as long as next door guest(s) was quiet. The wall a bit thin side and I can hear if next door chats laud. Also there was no ventilation in Kitchen. So I can smell food when next door cooks. Other than that, the room is clean, bathroom is big and has a tub, kitchen has most of utensils, in my conclusion, I like this B&B. :-)

Continued high standards

This is our fourth stay at By The Park B & B and they continue a high standard for all the above categories. We like their location near the subway which gives quick access to downtown Toronto while being on the periphery of Ronsecvalles, a welcoming older community in Toronto. Margo & Ziggy continue to be good hosts who exhibit interest in their customers.

Fantastic B&B

I stayed at the B&B By the Park for a business trip. I drove to Toronto from NY and therefore needed to park while I was there. My business kept me there all day on the day that I checked out and I was able to park there the whole day. That was really nice. I thought the room I had was great. There was a little kitchenette with a stove and microwave. I was actually able to bring home leftovers from the restaurant and have them the next day. It was quiet and quaint and best of all, we had our own bathroom. I will definitely stay again my next stay in Toronto!!!

Very close to public transit in a quiet neighbourhood. Beautifully renovated. Would have liked a little flexibility with the time of breakfast, as we had to leave for work by 8am.
