Great Location, Great Bargain! A review of Castlegate Bed & Breakfast Inn
Castlegate Inn is a terrific find--located in the lovely and charming Annex neighborhood of Toronto, its price can't be beat, particularly considering its convenient proximity to the University of Toronto and many tourist attractions (Casa Loma Inn, Bata Shoe Museum, etc.)
Staying at the Inn (which I think is actually three or four Victorian-style houses converted within into apartment-type units, all along Spadina Road) is actually more akin to living in an apartment than staying in a "traditional" hotel. My room was generously sized and clean, with private bathroom, cable TV and telephone. (My only complaint: no reading light next to the bed).
The room also contained a mini-kitchen containing a sink, microwave, coffee maker and dishes; there are a couple of grocery stores within walking distance, which easily made up for any lack of room service or on-premises restaurants (and helped save money).
The subway is within easy walking distance, which is great.
And the staff couldn't have been nicer, friendlier or more helpful. I enjoyed my stay immensely and would definitely visit again.
