Our one week stay was just lovely. The place is impeccably clean and the decor provides a relaxing atmosphere. The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood while still central with short walks to the town centre and all theatres. The breakfasts were very good and diversified. We stayed in the Verandah and the Birmingham rooms which were quite spacious... More

This was my first time staying overnight in Stratford. The Breaking Bread Bed and Breakfast offers a beautiful, clean, safe location to all the theatres and activities I did in Stratford. They accommodated my dietary requirements as I have milk allergies. The room, with the closet shower, is charming and just what I need. Not to have to rush out... More

We liked Breaking Bread B&B very much. Bed was comfortable and room very clean, delicious breakfast. Short walk to one of the Stratford theaters. Doug and Holly gave us many suggestions for good restaurants.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful stay for a long weekend to celebrate our 23 anniversary at Breaking Bread B & B in Stratford Ontario. The hospitality was pleasant and the food scrumptiously delicious being new and exciting every morning. The Verandah Room was neat and tidy , with its private bathroom a luxury. The private balcony off of... More

Walking in the door of Breaking Bread is like going to a relative's house to stay, and being treated like family. We have stayed there about 5 times now, and enjoy every moment. Holly and Doug are perfect hosts, and great cooks & servers. They appreciate theatre, and also enjoy participating in our table talk when the rush is over.... More

My friend and I enjoyed our stay for the third year in a row in the Verandah Room at this wonderfully peaceful, clean, and friendly establishment. I can't add much to my previous two glowing reviews. We got to meet Broderick, the new canine host, and he is a beautiful bundle of squirming puppy joy. If you want to meet... More

Over the years, we've stayed at many B&B's at Stratford. At Breaking Bread you know you will be treated like family. Hosts Doug and Holly care about providing the best experience for your Shakespeare getaway. From food to shopping to the latest in the theatre news to simply just resting up from busy lives, they know how to make you... More

Doug and Holly (as well as their energetic and friendly dog, Beckett) were tremendously wonderful hosts! Very kind and informative about local events. Breakfast was delicious and would awaken us with its aroma each time. Our room was comfortable and ready when we arrived a bit earlier than expected; we stayed for two nights in the verandah room, which includes... More

If he might initially appear to take things as you like it, Shakespeare is really into balance. As such, the Bard himself would thoroughly enjoy breaking bread with Doug and Holly Barkman. He would find an elegant yet simple decor; food satisfyingly light enough to accompany gratifyingly substantial conversation; a delightfully devilish dog named after Saint Thomas à Becket; soft...
