Amazing breakfast, we absolutely loved our room it was so full of character! Brilliant location right near some nice bars and restaurants and close to public transport.
Staff and location, price
Dusty and not clean. And breakfast was from 9 a.m. All my excursions began from 8, 8.30 or from 9.oo.
The room was nice with an attached bathroom but so very crowded. Breakfast was cooked to order but 9 - 11 am was a bit late for some. Pancakes were gorgeous. Some fruit would have been a nice option. Mr Pimblett was very entertaining. We could use the kettle in the front lounge to make a drink out of hours which was very welcome, especially when jet- lagged. Mr P let us check in early which was lovely as our flight arrived a little early. We were really grateful
The room was dusty and overcrowded. Whilst the furniture was appealing to someone who likes old fashioned stuff ( and I do), a little less if it would have made the room more comfortable. The bathroom was spacious but oh so dusty along the base boards etc. But the sinks and toilet were immaculate and there were plenty of toiletries. Bedding mismatched and old but immaculate. The area contains hostels and people who were considerably less fortunate than us. It was a bit off putting at first but we ended up on quite good terms with a number of e locals and never felt threatened. There are some good pubs and restaurants nearby, some beautiful properties and we walked everywhere.
It was central enough to walk to another more appropriate Hotel a few blocks away the next morning after cancelling the next 3 nights. The first night was enough. The bed was comfortable but with all the clutter, dust and cobwebs and exposed electrical work, no air conditioning couldnt sleep for wondering if the place would go up in flames during the night. A picture of a young Queen of England and Duke of Edinburgh over looking the bed while you sleep didnt give much comfort either other than a reminder that your in a time warp.
No refund was forthcoming (30 days waiting) or response from owner to emails and texts about refunding the 3 nights accommodation he said he would refund. (dishonest practices), on phone call he did mention to refund but so far nothing. House very old and in bad state of disrepair, front porch floor boards rotten, poor plumbing, toilet leaked and not flush properly. Stay at your own risk, it just not safe with the electrical sockets piggy backed, one spark and up it goes. The key to bedroom kept jamming, hard to open, bathroom is down corridor and locks with a cupboard latch, no soap provided. Shower mechanism hard to manage with weak hot water. No lift so use of narrow creaky stairwell to bedrooms. Unable to control heat to room other than use a large size book from the shelves to cover the vent. Neighbourhood is a little dodgy with homeless people about.
A really nice experience, very good breakfast, beautiful decorated house with nice garden and amenities. The owner is very nice and cooks very good breakfast daily. Very good location, within walking distance to downtown.
Located in Toronto (Cabbagetown), Pimblett's Downtown Toronto B&B is within a 15-minute walk of Ryerson University and Queen Street. Featured amenities include a computer station and a library.
