Wonderful location. Wonderful hosts. Fantastic breakfasts. It was an absolute joy to be able to park the car for the weekend and be sorry centrally located to all the theatres, restaurants etc. It really made for a relaxed weekend not to have to be getting in and out of your car. John and Mary Lou (and Baden) made you feel... More

Excellent hosts who were very pleasant and helpful in providing options to eat and places to visit. Their breakfast was plentiful, homemade and delicious. A quiet street and centrally located to the theatres.

This was our third visit to Caversham House. We are members of the Stratford Festival and have been visiting to see the plays for many years. We have stayed in hotels and in other b&b's. However we have now decided that Caversham is the best and our last three visits have been here. The place is very conveniently located on... More

We visited Caversham House in May. Had a terrific experience, starting with Mary Lou's helpful advice when we were booking. A recommendation for dog boarding nearby worked perfectly and helped make our trip logistics easier. John and Mary Lou have created a very welcoming environment, with lots of extras (guest fridge upstairs, snacks, water, bedtime treat). Location is perfect for... More

Mary Lou and John are great hosts. Their property is very comfortable and the breakfasts are splendid. Mary Lou helped with dining arrangements and made excellent recommendations. We would rate their B& B the best in Stratford.

We spent two nights with our wonderful hosts Mary Lou and John. They are warm, inviting people who make you feel very much at home. They also serve a very good breakfast and are very knowledgeable about the area. The room we stayed in was small, but sufficient. The location to town and theaters was very convenient. We would definitely... More

We were delighted to spend four nights at the Caversham House B&B in Stratford. Ideally located on the historic Cobourg Street, we were but a short walk away from all three theatres and the Avon River. We parked the car and left it there for the duration of our stay. Our hosts Marilou and John prepared scrumptious breakfasts and afternoon... More

Mary Lou and John were exceptional hosts -- they were very welcoming and were very knowledgeable about Stratford theaters, restaurants and the local area. The rooms (including the bathrooms) were well-appointed, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and included home made baking and granola, yogurt, (and delicious omelettes one day and waffles the next).... More
