    Fantastic Place to Stay!

    This was a fantastic place to stay. It was close to town, and quiet and comfortable. We had a king bed in one room and a queen in the other and a sunroom with a garden was wonderful. Oh, and the BEST shower ever! Nice full stream of water in what looked like a fairly newly rennovated glassed in shower.....fantastic....loved it......I would definitely stay there again!

    We were very pleased with our experience, easy walk to theatres and downtown. Tim helped us get a last minute dinner reservation at Bijou which is a great little restaurant and was happy to extend our checkout time as it was Sunday. Lovely breakfast but you do have to go to their main building about 10 minute walk or you can drive and they have ample parking.

  • 2.0.Poor

    not so good

    i had stayed at the sister property (Stone Maiden Inn) and enjoyed it, but was disappointed this time. Although they promise breakfast, it is not on the premises. Walk 900 metres (11 minutes) to get there. As i was with a friend who couldn't walk, they brought it to us: cold, unappetizing, no choices. Public rooms at the other property are fine; at this one there is a cramped porch with stained carpet and tiny frig. Public areas are outside, and so not good at night or in rainy/cold weather. Moreover, they promise daily housekeeping and my bed was not made the second day. Old towels left in the bathroom. The sliding door came off the bathroom the first time i used it (and stayed off for the day). The wifi was not reliable. When I provided feedback, they were angry, not helpful. It's expensive for what it is (no elevator, walk up steep stairs and around two corners, parking on the street, a bedspread not a duvet). I'll look for somewhere better next time.

    Charming Bed and breakfast near Stratford theatres

    A beautiful historic brick house surrounded by gardens in a residential neighbourhood within easy walking distance of the Stratford theatres and restaurants. The room was, clean clean, private and quiet. Free street parking. Free Wifi. Care was taken to appoint the room with interesting personal artifacts and art work. There is a mature garden, slightly over run, appointed with chairs and tables. Note there are stairs. I would definitely go there again.

    Great breakfast. Nice room but lots of stairs and unfortunately, got locked out of home one night. Host was gracious and discovered a fellow guest had done this in error. We strongly recommended a sign on inside of door to ensure this did not happen to others.

    Lovely location

    Great location, beautiful grounds. There was some mix-up about the type of room but it was easily remedied and very satisfactory for us. Walking distance to everything which was a bonus.
