The house has a great location in Stratford and is certainly clean and comfortable but I found it a bit lacking. First, there is no sign saying that this is the River Garden House. Make sure you have the house number and look carefully to see it on the house as you are driving past (not the easiest when you... More

The house was beautiful, the breakfast was excellent, and the host/hostess were gracious and very accommodating. In addition, the location was right next to Lake Victoria, and within walking distance, via a riverside trail, of town and most of the theaters. If the weather is appropriate, by leaving the window cracked you can hear the river flow, and also ducks,... More

This beautiful, century mansion house is ideally located for theatre going and shopping in lovely Stratford. It backs onto the water and the garden and view are exquisite.The other rooms that I saw were very spacious but unfortunately we were in Room 4 which is very crowded and has a bathroom not much bigger than an airplane lavatory. It does... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending the Stratford festival. It was delightful. It is situated across the river (lake) from the main town but an easy 5 minute walk into town. It is peaceful and quiet with beautiful views and gardens along the river. Our room was large and sunny and overlooked the gardens and river. The bed... More

It's a beautiful peaceful retreat - along side the Lake Victoria, on a quiet tree lined street that houses some gracious older homes and Church. What really impressed me was the terrace and garden - spectacular! This home gives one the feeling of serentiy, tranquility of being out in the country, yet it's close and convenient to everything. The owners... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at the River Garden B&B in February, 2012: off-season for theatres but still lots to do. River Garden House is north of Lake Victoria/Avon River in a residential neighbourhood but still only 800 metres from downtown Stratford. We walked downtown to shop and to eat lunch on Saturday and for dinner on Saturday... More

My sister-in-law & I just spent a fabulous weekend in Stratford and stayed at the River Garden House. This was our first stay at this bed and breakfast and I would definitely stay there again. I stayed in room #1 and which is very roomy. The beds are so comfortable; you’ll sleep like a baby. My sister-in-law stayed in room... More

This was our second stay at this B&B and it was great again. The room with the bay window is amazing and has a nice little couch overlooking the lake and the gardens. Stratford is great little community for a weekend getaway to unwind, watch some fantastic theatre and hang out with the swans. The River Garden House has, as... More

This large, beautiful house is on a quiet, tree-lined street backing on to the Avon River. Two of the four rooms overlook the river. The rooms have high ceilings and all but one are quite spacious. The B&B is just across the river from the shops on York Street and less than a five minute walk to the lovely Shakespeare... More

We stayed in room #4 that had two large picture windows overlooking the gardens and the lake. The L shaped room would work well with just a queen bed and a nice sitting area but there was a single bed in the room as well and that made it seem rather crowded. And the bathroom...think airplane...and when you turned on... More
