    The whole place is a gem of a hotel, the owners were friendly, helpful, warm and inviting. The hotel is fun to be in, full of quirky, interesting, historical items. The breakfasts were amazing, plenty of choice for every palate, nothing was too much trouble. The library is extensive and covers everybody's taste.

    full english breakfast, good location, nice personal/owner

    only disadvantage was that whole house and also rooms were overcrowded with lot of antiquities ( I mean really lof ot). It was difficult to bring luggage to room - very thin corridors and overcrowded with 'antiquities'

  • Older travelers

    More like a museum than an hotel. Full of souvenirs from bygone ages. A must see!

    Room is bit small. Well with all those books, pictures, antiques!

    The house is a charming Victorian row-house, as is much of the Old Cabbagetown neighborhood of Toronto. The hotel staff was very friendly, and cooked a wonderful breakfast! Our room was on the 3rd floor (walk up), was very comfortable and had an outside deck that we could use. There are shops, pubs and restaurants throughout the neighborhood, and it is near to public transportation around Toronto.

    great characters, very helpful;, wonderful food, eccentric decor!

  • Couple

    Lots of character, everyone was very nice. The room was clean, but overall,. the house is very cluttered with antiques and odd collectibles. We thought is was charming, but it may not be for everyone.

    Location was alright (near the streetcar, only a couple of miles from the sights), but not exactly central. Some shady characters in the nearby park.

    Geoffrey and the staff were very friendly and provided a comfortable stay.

  • Older travelers

    Room and Bath were clean. Bed was comfortable.

    There was clutter everywhere. The bathtub faucet was so calcified that they had to use hammer to free up. Breakfast was the same every morning and food was ok. The drawers in dresser were damaged and had difficulty opening and closing. The closet doors had broken/missing handles.

  • Single

    Very friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent. People staying at the B&B socialize.

  • Older travelers

    The building itself was charming: Victorian brick with bay windows, the interior crammed with books and British bric-a-brac. Our room was small but comfortable. We're particularly fussy about the bed and the shower, and both met our standards admirably. Pimblett's sits in the middle of a real neighborhood (old Cabbagetown), with lots of good restaurants and easy access to public transportation (we didn't bother to rent a vehicle). The breakfast, prepared by the affable John, had something for everyone. We never saw the other guests except at breakfast where they were a great source of travel tips. Should we return to Toronto, we'd go back to Pimblett'S.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Interesting family-type atmosphere, completely different from standard hotels. Good, relaxed breakfast; easy to chat to other guests. Near a "village in the city" area. Hotelier very helpful.

    No lift, so difficult with heavy luggage. Quite a distance from the subway.

  • Couple

    Quirky little b&b, like a British knick-knack museum! Stuff everywhere. Location great, 2 minute walk to the closest street car stop. Great cooked hot breakfast! Nice restaurants and pubs in area.

    We loved their big dog and cat. But can be bad for people who are scared or have allergies. Check in time says from 12 on Booked.net but when we got there they told us we the room wont be ready till at least 3. Which messed up some of our plans we had made for that day. Room a bit dusty and messy, too much stuff everywhere, so nowhere to put your stuff or hang clothes. Also had to move stuff around to fit the suitcase in someplace. Area is good location, but did not feel safe at night, so don't linger on the street after dark.
