Stayed in the Garden View for 3 nights the only downside of which was due to COVID 19 we could not enjoy breakfast with Margo and Ziggy. Although we did not utilize it this time the location is close to High Park and public transit for those wanting to get outside or downtown. Another great stay.

We had a fantastic stay at By the Park Bed & Breakfast. Our room (Garden Suite) was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Margot was a gracious host. She made delicious breakfasts each morning and gave thoughtful recommendations on how to spend our time in Toronto. The location of By the Park Bed & Breakfast was perfect for easy access to the city via the Keele subway stop. I would highly recommend By the Park to anyone looking for a quality place to stay on their visit to Toronto. -Claire & Peter

We stayed 4 nights and totally enjoyed our stay! Margo & Ziggy are amazing hosts who truly made us feel "at home". Each morning we enjoyed wonderful breakfasts with choice of eggs, or tasty french toast, side orders of toast , orange juice, delicious coffee via French press! The B&B is a victorian styled home with beautiful furnishings and architecture. Nicely landscaped grounds. Located near High Park (Toronto's largest public park) ideal for nature walks, strolls, or jogs, etc.... Rapid transits is a short walk and many good restaurants in the area. Free off street parking! We will definitely be back and look forward to staying here again!

As a frequent traveller to Toronto, I try to make my stay as relaxing and as uncomplicated as I possibly can. By the Park is my favourite spot to stay. Margo and Ziggy are always the most welcoming of hosts, and I feel like a friend in their home. Every detail is well executed and thoughtful. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, and the big bubbly bathtub is great after a stressful day. It is close to public transport and offers beautiful areas to take a relaxing walk. Next to High Park and the lovely stately homes in the streets next to it.
I always recommend By the Park.

Margo and Ziggy were incredible hosts. So helpful. Such amazing conversationalists. Their home is clean, cozy and rich with visual art Ziggy has painted. They gave us Excellent recommendations for restaurants and walks nearby. High Park is a 5 minute walk away and the neighbourhood is mature, safe and has beautiful old homes. We parked our car when we arrived (on the street with free parking) earlier in the day, walked to the TTC subway station and took it downtown to watch a Blue Jays game. Did the same when we returned and moved the car from the street to their driveway for the night. Easy check-in. The Room was stunning as was the huge, private bathroom. Wish we stayed longer; forget staying in a hotel! We requested a small breakfast (egg, toast, potatoes and coffee) and it was perfect. We will return.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights as I was having surgery at The Toronto Western Hospital. Margo and Ziggy were wonderful hosts, friendly and compassionate, and the room we stayed in was comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. They have a driveway for parking, and when switching of cars was needed, they did it themselves, which saved us much stress. We highly recommend By the Park Bed and Breakfast!

This was our first time at By The Park, but from now on we will definitely choose to stay and relax here any time we are in Toronto. Margo and Ziggy have done a beautiful job restoring this 1910 home in this gorgeous, walkable neighbourhood, one street away from the forest pathways of High Park. They have made the whole place a treat for the eyes, and the bedrooms are all comfortable and attractive. Their friendly hospitality and willingness to help out with information and suggestions adds to the ambience. For those coming from and getting back to Pearson Airport, it is so handy to the TTC subway station at Keele, and to the Bloor UP Express station off Dundas W. And it has good subway and streetcar connections to city centre.

This BnB is a jewel right off a main street in Toronto but feels like a quiet island of luxury. Near the subway, a large park and a shopping/dining neighborhood. Beautiful interior, most comfortable beds ever. We stayed on the third floor which includes a large soaking tub and a huge solarium. Coffee/ tea fixings and a mini-refrigerator in the room. Breakfast made to order. The only negative aspect is climbing the stairs with big suitcases - no elevator. Hostess, Margo is friendly, helpful and a source of lots of history of the house and area.

We have stayed at By The Park four times now, and have tried out all three rooms. We were fully comfortable in all of them, though spoiled lavishly by The Loft. Margo and Ziggy are so friendly and accommodating and ready with helpful advice. UP Train connections to and from Pearson Airport via Bloor Station are less than a ten-minute walk away. Subway to downtown is even closer, at Keele.

Always a comfortable, welcoming and relaxing visit to By the Park. I have been visiting for many years, and it is always a Five Star experience. The bedrooms and bathrooms are always superbly kept and maintained, as are the common areas. The beds are comfortable, and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated. The breakfast is served in a lovely dining room. The meal itself is tailored to each guest, and freshly prepared. I love the hosts, and they have become my home away from home.

Hello. You can check room availability on their website. The site is very thorough and should also be able to answer any other questions you may have, but if not, send them an email. They were very prompt with replies. Good luck, and enjoy!
