    Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

    We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

    We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

    The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

    The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

    The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

    There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

    The following morning we decided to venture out of the city and head across the water to Toronto Island, the jewel in the city's crown. In fact, with only a 10 minute boat ride it's not even that far away, but for the most part you can't see the city when ...

    ... taste of the sea she told me. It reminded me a of the tapas bars in Barcelona. The flavours were amazing, small bits of vinegar followed by the salt from the sea. A range from seaweed to shrimps to calamari. It didn't disappoint it made me want more. But time was pressing so on leaving the markets happening to spot an ICE WINE out of the corner of my eye. Seeing the Riesling ice wine in German is one of my favourites I need to try. Talking to the gentleman about the wine, as soon ...

    ... hopped on the ferry which we realised wasn't going to the Centre Island it was going to Ward Island which is the far left Island. Now there are 3 separate Islands so to speak but they are all ajoining. Unfortunately the bike hire shop was at the top of the Centre Island. So we had no choice but to walk around. This didn't take too long. We followed the boardwalk which took us past various 'beaches' until we reached the middle. ...
