Jim and Marina are wonderfully people. Well travelled and well read, they are great fun to talk to.
This was our 4th year staying at their B&B. The breakfast is always plentiful and tasty. Their home-made maple granola is a must try. The house is gorgeous with lots of artefacts that the hosts have collected over the years. The rooms are beautiful yet very cozy. The bathrooms are separate from the rooms down the hall but are still private for each of the two rooms.

Room Tip: The rose room has a very comfy bed. The blue room has two single beds that the host would put togeth...

Jim and Marina did a wonderful job of making our stay relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. We requested vegan breakfasts and they delivered!! - Delicious vegan waffles the first day and delectable vegan banana french toast the second day. Both meals also included lots of fresh fruit, juice, coconut yogurt and granola. Though we are not coffee drinkers, smelling the aroma of their fair-trade coffee was a very homey way to wake up. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed talking with our hosts. They are well-travelled, knowledgeable, gracious and extremely helpful! We borrowed two of their bikes one day to explore Stratford -- it was a lovely convenience. Jim was very helpful in advising us on the best way home. I would definitely recommend The Lilly Pad!

Jim is an exceptional host. Before our arrival, he emailed to advise us about construction that would have delayed our journey and suggested an alternative route. The room was very comfortable and the decor was pretty and befitting the historic house. Breakfast was very tasty and Marina made some sweet treats to accompany the meal. The granola was delicious as was the asparagus omelettte. Nice selection of teas and I loved the bright and elegant feel of the breakfast room. We left stuffed and ready for for a full day of activities.

The location of Lilly Pad is excellent. A short 10-minute walk to the city centre and tucked away in a quiet residential street. This place is indeed a hidden gem and an excellent value.

I stayed at the Lilly Pad once again this July and had a super stay. Jim and Marina have a clean and comfortable home with lovely furnishings. My bed was very comfortable, and the breakfasts prepared by Marina are fabulous. Jim is a wonderful host, even meeting my train at the station. It is centrally located to theatres and other amenities. This is my third year with them, and I hope to stay with them again!!

Our two night stay at the Lilly Pad was delightful. The room was clean, lovely and comfortable; the service and breakfasts were outstanding. Jim is a friendly, helpful host, eager that his guests enjoy their B & B stay and their time in Stratford. The Lilly Pad is ideally situated for visiting the town center or any of the theaters. An outstanding value!!
