We had a fabulous one night away on our first visit to Stratford. The room was spotlessly clean with excellent facilities! Bonnie could not have been more welcoming. All your needs are taken care of to a very high standard, we will be returning ⭐️

I typically stay here for business and this past weekend for a birthday/shopping trip with my wife. Connie and George are first-rate hosts and will do whatever it takes to make your stay lovely and memorable. This is a charming century building so do not expect your run-of-the-mill hotel room layout. Every room is different but comfortably appointed. Easy walking...

Connie is friendly and helpful, the location was perfect and the rooms were nice and very clean. Also, the staff had included thoughtful extra touches like a handwritten welcome note, water and a chocolate treat. A...

A very affordable nights stay. Clean and cozy room. We rented the jacuzzi suite and were very happy with it. Within walking distance to delicious restaurants. Friendly hosts. Easily recommend as a good place to stay.

Lovely accomodations, walk to the festival theatres, and the staff happily fulfilled our every wish from coffee and cookies available all day, to a request for real glassware, to a few extra pillows, and luscious chocolates to welcome us! Thanks for a superb stay!

Thank you for taking time out to share your opinion of our hotel. It's very important to us to make our guests stay memorable. Sometimes the little things as I have been told make the difference. Very happy you both enjoyed suite #2 and a "superb stay" is what we like to hear! Maybe we'll see you again someday.

Great location in Stratford, near restaurants and most theaters, but very quiet at night. Unbeatable value for the cost, especially in the fall. Quirky little hotel with great little extras (cookies, chocolate). Owners, who are very engaging and friendly, do most of the work, so you know its done right. This would be my first choice when visitng Stratford again.

This hotel is in a great location near downtown Stratford and the Avon Theater. It's comprised of suites and single rooms. We stayed in Suite 5 at the top of the stairs. The suites are all different but like ours, they all have a sitting area separate from the bedroom area. From the lobby area with a friendly greeting, a...

A beautifully furnished, quite unique small hotel with a fascinating range of room sizes and choices.
