For travellers who demand a prime location with the usual amenable pleasures of the typical B&B, Annex House Bed & Breakfast scores big time. Annex House is smack dab in the centre of the Annex, one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Toronto. It offers a streetscape hodgepodge of the intellectual (owing to its proximity to the University of Toronto) and the artistic. The Annex also encompasses some of the best culinary cards in the city and is within walking distance of prime tourist destinations such as Yorkville, the Mink Mile, the Royal Ontario Museum, and two funky, unique museums: the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art and the Bata Shoe Museum.
A Spacious Manor with Flexibility of Room Design and Amenities
The Annex House is a spacious, three-storey manor of brick and granite that is more Georgian than Victorian in design, with a long exterior porch, high ceilings, mahogany bannisters, wood panelling and hardwood floors. It offers four ensuite rooms; depending on the room you choose, you may arrange a kitchenette, balcony view, or ensuite bathroom within or down the hall from your quarters—all easily arranged and discussed by phone. Three of the rooms offer queen-sized beds. The fourth offers a humble twin.
Interior Design of an English Kind
The interior design of the Annex House Bed & Breakfast emphasizes comfort of the distinctly English kind – pleasurably plush with a rigid backbone. Expect soft brass beds, throw rugs on the hardwood, and embroidered chairs with sturdy support. Even the soft oil paintings are framed by the steely glint of gilt. It’s a great place to crack open the spine of a classic novel when you need a break from the fun of the Annex.
