If you hate clutter, stop reading now. If you can cope with clutter, but hate cats and dogs, I'd recommend another internet search. For the rest of you that love kooky, kitschy, chintzy charm then Pimbett's Downtown B+B is just the ticket. Crammed full of stuff from straw boaters, to stuffed deer heads, to books, books, books, to silverware, to just about everything that Geoffrey likes to collect, it is a treasure trove of eccentricity in Old Cabbagetown. If there's a space, Geoffrey will fill it. Brucester, the soppy, gorgeous, affectionate Doberman will follow you round the B+B hoping for a cuddle and a quick kiss on the nose. Tiddles, the cat, is a bit more aloof, but adds to the quirky charm of the place.
I was staying in the Agatha Christie room and I bloody loved it. Forget your Best Westerns, your Marriotts, your Radissons and Sheratons. They are all pants. What my room lacked in space, it made up for with oodles upon noodles of charm. If I ever come back to Toronto I will be heading to Pimbletts Downtown B+B for the best poached eggs (served on Prince Charles and Lady Di plate!), the most loving dog, the most eccentric innkeeper and a neighbourhood that oozes character.
Only one word of warning: it's an old house. In other words, it's a bit creaky. The stairs groan, the boiler rumbles. Bring your earplugs and don't let this minor point put you off. You will never forget this place.
