Our rooms were large enough and had small couches. The decor is old-fashioned, and well realized. The staff and service was rally the shining gem: charming and effective, from Craig to Robin to our morning waitress in the restaurant. At night, the bar filled with the local crowd, which was nice. We worked in the bar, as it was not... More

What a charming establishment. We had a lovely room with a king size bed on the third floor overlooking Downie Street. The room was spacious and full of character. The bed, my word! What a comfortable sleep. And they even have an elevator at the back of the restaurant so we could dine and then make our way back to... More

Having visited Stratford many times, yet this was our first stay at Foster's Inn. What a delightful surprise. Other than having to park a block away, it was a wonderful 2-day stay. Service is wonderful, the room recently redecorated, price fairly average and convenience could not be better. The rooms are faurly spartan, breakfast is not included, but the restaurant... More

We loved our stay at Fosters and enjoyed the restaurant as well. Beautifully located, spotlessly clean, wonderful food and great staff! We went to Stratford to see theatre and Fosters is right across the street from the Avon theatre. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Terrific place, wonderful restaurant, great food, warm welcoming staff. Room was large, bright, and clean. Place is in the center of things. the snug pub was a great place to end the day. The breakfast and the steak dinners are as good as it gets. Worth a visit.

I spent a lovely evening at Foster's Inn. The rooms are very spacious with wonderfully tall ceilings, large washrooms and plenty of power sockets. The staff were extremely welcoming and made my 85 year old mother feel most comfortable. The food was delicious and very reasonable in price. The public parking is close by and there never a problem parking... More

At Foster's everyone who served us was bright, cheerful and helpful. The room was well appointed and restful. For theater-goers the location is ideal. The Avon and Studio venues are almost across the street. The Tom Patterson is a five minute walk. The Festival is a bit further but no more than a 15 or 20 minute walk. Foster's is... More

Foster's Inn is in the heart of downtown Stratford so everything we wanted to see was within walking distance, including the theatres.

Over the years, while visiting the Stratford festival, I have frequented this restaurant many times. The overall experience at your restaurant has been outstanding, from the ambience, food and decor. However, tonight while visiting the restaurant the hostess was blatantly rude and insulting. Our family had booked a reservation, under the assumption that it would be honoured. Due to some... More

I reserved this hotel with Expedia and received a confirmation that two rooms were booked and that there was no need to reconfirm. Days later, I received a call from the hotel saying that in fact they only had one room available. I was in Northern Ontario at the time and did not receive the message right away. When I... More
