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....

This was our second visit to The Blue Spruce B&B and we were just as pleased the second time as the first. The B&B is inviting and reflective of the charm of Stratford.

Michael and Helene are wonderful. They made us feel so special and welcome and the breakfasts are truly yummy. Not your typical breakfast fair - far more special and really enjoyable. Location is great, rooms are comfortable and all in all a great choice.

The Blue Spruce is one of the very few B&Bs in Stratford that sleeps more than 2 comfortably, as we really didn't want to put a couple on a twin bed (most other places would have a king that became two twins). Communication from The Blue Spruce was excellent, and we had no trouble finding it in Stratford. It was... More

We stayed here for two nights and we were so impressed. The Peacock room was beautiful and comfortable. The hosts Michael and Hellen were so warm and welcoming and they have a wealth of local knowledge. They booked us dinner last minute at a downtown spot. Breakfast was the best meal we ate while in Stratford the stuffed French toast... More

The hosts are charming people, the house is historic and funky , the room was very comfortable, but it is the breakfast that is fabulous. From previous experience we expected cereal and toast and what we got was a fine dining experience.

Michael and Helene: We had a wonderful time at The Blue Spruce last Friday and Saturday. We saw two excellent shows, ate well at the B & B and also in the town thanks to recommendations from our hosts, and got in enough walking to satisfy even the most enthusiastic walker.
