Pimblett's Downtown Toronto B&B
Ranked #55 of 118 Toronto B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 November 2009

I stayed for a week in August and several days in October -- both were very good experiences. Mr. Pimblett and his staff create a charming, cozy environment and are friendly, capable and helpful. The B&B is decorated in a charming Victorian/Royal theme. There are washrooms, TVs, and thoughtful conveniences in the rooms (some have balconies or separate entrances). I was given keys to the front door and my room so could come and go as I pleased. The breakfasts are amazing and plentiful. There are tables in the kitchen, sun room and patio so lots of choice as to seating. It was lovely to meet friendly people from Italy, Brazil, and the US during breakfast. I thoroughly enjoyed both of my stays there!

i you're looking for a truly unique, yet super-located facility in which to stay in toronto, we can recommend Pimblett's Downtown B&B as outstanding. Eclectic simply doesn't get it, either as regards the facility, or the host, or the food-preparer. It also applies to your fellow guests.

Should we have the opportunity to return to toronto, there's no doubt as to where we'll stay. It's GREAT!

I highly recommend Albert Pimblett's downtown Bed and Breakfast as it oozes charm and character.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very good value for money. Geoffrey and his 'man servant' aka John (who serves scrumptious breakfasts) make a comic duo and are really the highlight of the b & b. They also have a dog, Brewster, who is only too eager to welcome you to the house!

The location is perfect, being located in Cabbagetown (old area), only a few blocks away from a subway station (10-15mins walk) and Church Street (gay area).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were very sad to leave.

I was warmly greeted and sincere concern was shown for me and my belongings. After a quick tour and explanations of breakfast time and other amenities, I was turned to come and go as io pleased. Every morning was filled with the lovely aromas of bacon, sausage, eggs and John's (the cook) exquisite pancakes, along with fresh fruit, juice and other delicious items! This is a very convenient and affordable location in the heart of the city with all the feel of visiting a family member's house. Next visit I will bring the wife and book early!

Despite the friendly and interesting character of the owner and his friends, I can't rate this b and b highly. There was stuff everywhere, some of it interesting but this is the definition of clutter. You wondered how he'd manage to cook breakfast (same every day) or where to sit. Our room was not serviced daily, had torn wallpaper and drapes, and was missing 2 of the 3 pieces of the door molding in the bathroom.
