"I travelled and stayed in many B&B but staying here felt right at home. Your place is warm, Clean, (your B&B were the cleanest in Toronto) and very comfortable. Having internet access was an added benefit. We will miss the great breakfast, the friendly staff and we will definitely stay here whenever we come to Toronto. We will recommend our friends back home."

"I have stayed in a number of B&Bs in the past a few years. So far, I rank Ambassador Inn the best. Its location is super central, its rooms are immaculately clean, its people are very friendly and charming. Most of all, it is very stylish with home comfort, and it has class. Loved it."

"Thank you very much for everything. we, group of Japanese really enjoyed your hospitality. Yes the Japanese guide book is right, and all the guests here admire your staff friendliness and excellent service. We really could feel at home. We will certainly come back again."

"We have stayed here three times so far. What we like best is the homey feeling. Every time we come back, it feels like home coming. You will have to stay here to know what we are talking about. Take a look at “our room” – Room #303. Isn’t it cute? By the way, Ambassador Inn’s room rates are from over $100 and up. We love their honeymoon rooms with heart-shape double Jacuzzi tubs."

"We have read the first five reviews on Ambassador Inn, and felt that people have said all the wonderful things that we wanted to say. Our experience at Ambassador Inn was both enjoyable and memorable. We will sum up our expression in a phrase that we have borrowed from a TV commercial while we were in Toronto: “Who is better than Ambassador Inn? Noooooobody!”

"The Ambassador Inn appears to be the owner's best property. Our med-priced room was very nice. The full breakfast was one of the best eaten ... our overall experience at the Ambassador Inn was very good experience."

"We are about to leave this afternoon, but have already started feeling sad to leave. We appreciate our clean room, comfortable stay and hearty breakfast. We will definitely come back. By the way, your location is super. We have walked around downtown area a lot. Toronto is one of cleanest and safest city we have been to."

"I stayed at the Ambassador and had a very pleasant experience. The room was immaculate, the breakfast was fine, and they had free computer access. No, I didn't have a view of Lake Ontario, but I wasn't paying for that. I found this a great place to stay if you need a clean, quiet place to crash after touring Toronto. The staff was very cordial. I would definitely stay there again."

"Brilliant b&b. The staff were so welcoming and were happy to accommodate your every whim. Breakfast was exceptional with fresh produce and baking. 5 out of 5. Will most definitely return."

"We've stayed at the Jarvis House several times. Although ascending and descending the mansion's stairs can be a little tricky, overall, we found this to be a nice bed & breakfast. The rooms are not fancy, but clean. The full breakfast is very tasty. If you are looking for privacy, and don't wish to be bothered with nosey or talkative hosts, Jarvis House is the place for you!"

"Thank you very much for the delightful stay, lovely and quiet rooms. We enjoyed very much the peacefulness, hospitality and loved your wonderful breakfast."
