With sturdy stone walls that hold a proud history and a luxurious atmosphere, The Old Mill Inn and Spa brings a touch of English charm to the banks of the Humber River. Its grace and beauty are braced by charcoal beams and set amid pockets of pristine wilderness only fifteen minutes outside of downtown Toronto, where wayward city commotion is lost amid the storied riverbanks.
Dining and Entertainment
The Old Mill has a history dating back nearly two centuries, and great entertainment has always been at the heart of this tale. Opened on the first day of World War One, The Old Mill Tea Garden began hosting live musicians, a tradition which continues today in the renowned jazz music that trickles from the Home Smith Bar and the special events hosted in the historic dining room. The holidays are an especially important time for entertaining, when festive lunch buffets supplement the already delicious dinner options like slow-roasted ribs and salmon tartare.
Rooms at The Old Mill are vast, elegant and chicly cavernous with high ceilings and oversized windows that ensure great views of the surrounding parkland - and they are made infinitely more romantic by the free wine and chocolate upon arrival. Hand-woven rugs grace the hardwood floors, the Jacuzzi tub coaxes away stress, and an all-season fireplace crackles comfortably in the corner. There is also a spa on site at The Old Mill where massage therapy and chocolate cocoon wraps are administered in a harmonious and calming atmosphere.
The Surrounding Area
The landscape surrounding The Old Mill is treasured, and it is responsibly tended to by the hotel's various green initiatives. Take a winter walk through the Humber Valley parkland - perhaps down to historic Kings Mill Park. A short drive or convenient subway ride will bring you to the heart of Toronto where you can experience all the perennial favourites, or pause for seasonal celebrations at the Christmas market in the Distillery District or special shows at Roy Thomson Hall.
