Very nice stay at Caversham. They clearly work hard to think of everything and make your stay a pleasant one. We didn't get to spend a lot of time there but the care and attention to detail were very evident. A fan would have been welcome in the room as it was quite hot in spite of the air conditioning....

This was my first experience at a B & B so I was a little nervous but from the moment I walked in MaryLou and John made us feel like we was part of their family. This couple is SO hospitable and truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The room was very cute and really... More

Mary Lou and John were gracious and attentive hosts. Our room was comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent. The table was elegantly set. The delicious food was locally-grown and everything was home made...fresh herbs were from their own garden! The location is perfect...a short walking distance to both the theatres and downtown restaurants.

Took in four wonderful performances at the Stratford Festival last week and were very happy to have stayed at the Caversham House, which is located in a quiet neighborhood. We could walk to the theaters, walk downtown to wonderful restaurants recommended by the owners, Mary Lou and John, and walk to the river to see the swans. Stayed in room... More

We are Stratford members so we visit there frequently but until now have used a downtown hotel because of it's central location. This time we decided to try the Caversham House and were very pleased that we did. It suited our needs perfectly. The location is excellent being actually closer to both the Tom Patterson and Festival Theatres. There is... More

Our recent stay at the Caversham was exceptional in many regards. The rooms were very clean and spacious, and the food was well-prepared, plentiful, and offered a variety of choices. The hosts were welcoming, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the history of Stratford and the various activities that are available to tourists. Wifi was available throughout the house (the connection... More

Mary Lou and John are absolutely wonderful and welcoming hosts and it was a real pleasure to spend the night at their beautifully appointed home and then to savor the fabulous multi-course breakfast the following morning. Mary Lou and John really do think of everything by way of making guests feel welcome and their home is within easy walking distance... More

We just spent a night at The Caversham and will definitely recommend it to others. Mary Lou and John are wonderful hosts and made us very welcome in their beautifully appointed B&B. We were traveling with my elderly parents and both Mary Lou and John were very accommodating. They gave us tips on local restaurants and cafés and even arranged... More

Mary Lou and John provide a wonderful retreat from the world. And it's perfectly located for leisurely strolls along the river and visits to the various theatres in Stratford. They have thought of everything you might possibly need and then some. The room was lovely and the breakfasts worthy of a Michelin 3 star review. And Mary Lou gave us... More

Had a wonderful stay at this quaint B&B. Warm, comfortable surroundings. Very clean. Lovely little touches like bed turn-downs and an unexpected but very welcome little sweet waiting on the pillow. :) Absolutely delicious breakfast and engaging hosts. Recommend it highly and would be my first pick when I return to Stratford!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Simple Pleasures Abound at The Caversham House! The newly renovated, air-conditioned, home successfully combines last century’s ambiance with today’s comforts. Sun filled, professionally decorated rooms are invitingly furnished. Tasteful style is also found on the spacious and comforting front porch or in the intimate garden, all a pleasure for discerning guests. The classic red brick structure, built in 1915, is a fine example of Edwardian architecture. Many of the original architectural features of the Caversham House have been carefully preserved. Situated on a quiet tree lined street in the heart of Stratford, an easy walk to all the theatres, restaurants, and shopping. We are two blocks from Lake Victoria and Stratford’s picturesque parks. No strangers here, just friends you have yet to meet. Your hosts Mary Lou Middleton and John McNeil invite you to discover the Simple Pleasures The Caversham House has to offer. ... more   less
