Old Mill Inn & SpaEdit profile
The Old Mill Inn and Spa is an English-style inn and restaurant in The Kingsway neighbourhood of the Toronto suburb of Etobicoke. It is located off Bloor Street, overlooking the Humber River along 2.5 hectares, at 21 Old Mill Road. The Old Mill subway station is a short distance away.
The Old Mill restaurant and conference centre had hosted wedding receptions and corporate events for decades, but a hotel and spa opened in October 2001, with 47 rooms and 13 suites. The addition cost $20 million to build. The Tudor-style hotel's owner-innkeeper is Michael Kalmar.
The Old Mill originally was Toronto's first sawmill, built circa 1793. It was owned by R. Home Smith when it opened as the Old Mill Tea Garden in 1914, and was a place for dancing to big band music in the 1920s. It was designated as a heritage property in 1983 by the former city of Etobicoke and retains that designation with Toronto. It has changed owners three times, and was bought by the Kalmar family in 1991.
