A B&B right on the water!
A great experience! A B&B right on the harbour ... close to lots of action, restaurants, and points of interest. The proprietors were hospitable and welcoming! The breakfasts were delicious! Pencil us in for another visit soon!

Making Waves Boatel is a dream!
Delightful B&B, wonderful regional food for breakfast, quiet and comfortable room. A highlight was the view from the deck of the downtown night lights, including the fabulous light show from the CN Tower. The hosts were very hospitable, and the location is wonderful. I'd stay again!

Welcoming Boatel
We were made very welcome and were looked after very well. The location was peaceful but ideal for access to Toronto city. The home cooked breakfasts were amazing. Thank you to our hosts.

Do yourself a favour and stay here
I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Boatel in downtown Toronto. It's difficult to convey how great this place is because it's so unique, and partly about the experience itself. The owners and staff were fantastic, the location is as good as, or better than, any of the major hotels in the area, breakfast was delicious, the place was really clean, and the bed was super comfy. If you're looking for a gigantic hotel room to spend your time in this isn't the place, but if you're looking for a convenient, comfy, friendly, memorable Toronto experience, stay here. I'll definitely be going back.

Memorable experience
What a treat!!! I absolutely loved my 2 night stay aboard the Boatel. The hosts were friendly and helpful, enjoyed breakfast with the other guests, fantastic location and the CN Tower was just outside my bedroom window. Comfy bed, lovely room. One of the highlights of my vacation. :)

Great downtown location.
Staying on the Boatel was a unique experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The breakfasts were wonderful, the hosts amazing and it was nice to spend time getting to know the other guests. I was in Toronto for the first time and found this location to be more than I expected. The downtown waterfront is very accessible, lots of green space and the Boatel is very centrally located in the area. I had a great view of the Canada Day fireworks at the CN Tower and the in the harbour.
