Big thank you to the team at St James hotel, friendly helpful staff especially Joey. Great location, fantastic room that was clean and spacious. The little extras made us feel special, the welcome gift bag with some little treats was a nice touch. Lovely toiletries provided and excellent healthy breakfast options included as part of the deal that got us off on a good start each morning. Highly recommend. Big thankyou

Convenient and comfortable
We stayed for two nights. The hotel is well cited in relation topublic transport and shops. Our room was spacious and well equipped with modern fittings. The free wifi worked well. The website advertises 'free breakfast', but, in reality, what you get is a voucher for one item from a menu. However, we found that the fruit and granola yoghurt was adequate for us. Tea or coffee is provided in the lobby all day, and the room has a microwave, so one can boil water for tea in the room.

Best little hotel I ever stayed
They are always accommodating. I am disabled and require special attention. I don't want to even have to consider another spot. Staff are excellent, very friendly. I'm sure we will be back again.

We really loved our stay at this hotel. Right from check in to check out the staff were so accommodating and efficient. They offered free parking and late checkout as part of our VIP booking with Expedia and even extended our parking until later on the checkout date, so we could visit my dad at Toronto General Hospital. Outstanding!!! Thank you for everything and we will see you again for sure. Shout out to Jin!!! Be well!
