Year after year we make Breaking Bread our "base of operations" when we come to Stratford and this year was no exception. Holly and Doug Barkman have won our loyalty and friendship through their gracious hosting, attention to our needs, immaculate and comfortable accommodations, charming furnishings, delicious breakfast fare and certainly not least of all their convenient location within a...

Each time we return to Breaking Bread, we feel like we're visiting good friends, Holly and Doug. The rooms are comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Holly and Doug are quick to help us figure things out when we have questions. Breakfast is always so nice. The only reason not to recommend them is the fear that they won't have room... More

We just enjoyed our second stay at Breaking Bread and have determined it is the perfect place to stay in Stratford! The location is near to theaters and restaurants, there is convenient parking, it is immaculate and nicely appointed, rates are reasonable, and Holly and Doug are wonderful hosts - they are very knowledgeable about the festival, and the breakfasts...

Holly and Doug were very gracious and always took the time to answer our questions. The house was very clean and the breakfasts were fantastic. The location is within walking distance to all of the Stratford theaters providing the weather is good. This was a first time B&B experience for both of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here....

What a wonderful place to stay in Stratford! I have stayed here many times and it's just like my home away from home. You couldn't ask for a more convenient place to stay. It's so close to all theatres and just a short walk to wonderful shops and restaurants. Doug and Holly are excellent hosts, the place is very clean... More

Stratford’s Shakespearian Festival performances are a magnet for us. Living, as we do in Niagara, live theatre is all around us with the Shaw Festival in Niagara-On-the-Lake and in Stratford. While we can, and do, go on day trips to the Shaw for an individual performance Stratford is just too far to do in one day. Fortunately, we have found... More

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.
