Michael and Helene were the most gracious hosts. The food was amazing, the conversations at breakfast were compelling, and the quality of our room was fantastic, and all for very reasonable rates. For us first time Stratford travellers, Michael and Helene were expert guides able to point out the best spots for dinner, for sight seeing, and of course for... More

This was our second stay at the Blue Spruce for the Stratford Festival. We now relie on Michael and Helene to make our dinner reservations, and to generally direct us to those little spots locals know about. Breakfast is a family affair with a gourmet meal and laughs and jokes shared with other guests. These innkeepers really care for their... More

Bed & Breakfast warmth of hospitality is outstanding. Breakfast is excellent with choices available. Rooms are theme-styled with interesting and extensive literary and musical memorabilia collections. Easy walking distances to theatre, restaurants and shopping.

Our one night stay was very enjoyable. Spotless old southern Ontario home, very relaxing garden, and a gourmet breakfast! Helene and Michael managed to make me enjoy avocado with the delicious poached and oven baked egg in avocado. Our hosts were very helpful with restaurant and chocolate store recommendations.

Pierre ... thank you for your kind review. I am so pleased you liked the "Avocado Egg Sunrise" breakfast! It's a new addition to the menu, and a bit adventurous, but oh so delicious - as you discovered. We really enjoyed your visit with us and hope to see you again soon. Dexter and Dixie says "Hi!" More

My boyfriend and I were on a first-time trip to Stratford when we recently stayed at the Blue Spruce B&B. Our two nights there were relaxing and enjoyable. Helene made us feel immediately at home when we arrived. She gave us a tour of the lower level, pointing out the wonderful music memorabilia (autographed photos etc.) as we went from... More

I would rate this as good. As the other travellers said the breakfast was amazing! Owners were extremely friendly. The only thing I would stay is that it is on a busy road (high traffic) which could be a bit noisy and about 2 or 3 blocks away from the downtown area but within walking distance for sure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-night stay at the Blue Spruce. The hosts, Michael and Helene, were very gracious and friendly. They obviously take great pride in their century-old B&B and it shows in every detail throughout their spotless home. The breakfast was perfect - like eating at a 5-star restaurant with relaxed, casual conversation that Michael keeps going while serving... More

Great welcome and tour of all of the amazing music memorabilia. We enjoyed the treats and coffee machine and the breakfast was delicious and out of the ordinary. Michael and Helene stayed to chat with us over coffee just like old friends! We shared some great stories with the other visitors from Michigan. Michael offered to help with dinner reservations....
