Our Overall Rating: 5/5
Look. This place gets the perfect score because they’re just not competing with anyone. They’re their own category here. It’s part historical site, part museum, part arthouse, part sexy getaway…it’s just a really cool and fascinating space, and the owner/curator Tanya is an inspiring character. She’s brought in so much taxidermy, sensual artwork, larger-than-life pieces to interact with, and she’s so welcoming and knowledgable. This is a great spot to stay when visiting Toronto and I hope to stop in for a party one day!
Cleanliness Rating: 4/5
When you’re dealing with a house that’s hundreds of years old you of course have elements that are vintage, worn down, or even broken. Having said that, we thought everything felt well maintained and comfortable for our stay! We know not everyone has the same standards as we do so just know what feels comfortable to you.
Favorite Room: We stayed in the Opium Den which was perfect for us. We loved the shower room and the balcony!
