This is a rather large restaurant but is nicely broken up into cosy areas. The decor is luxury pub. The food was very good, especially the fish and chips my husband had. The vegetarian selection, mushroom ravioli, was very tasty also. The server was helpful in choosing my meal and although they were full the service was great. We would... More

We stayed here last week for a one night stay after an afternoon at the theatre. I thought it was a nice hotel, with very friendly staff. Our room was clean, and we had no troubles with anything, and no concerns. We had a room with a King bed, and it was quite roomy. I do agree with others, that... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Parlour Inn. We were a group of three and they had a wonderful two bedroom, two bath suite with a living room. Perfect location - right across from the LCBO!- easy check in, lots of parking and great service. It is an older building, but has been well renovated and even the window... More

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter long weekend. This is an absolutely gorgeous and comfortable hotel. We stayed in the same room as we had the year before. We have accessibility needs and these were all met. Leading up to the stay I had email exchanges with April Brunet who was very lovely to deal with and made... More

What a wonderful wee Inn in Stratford. Great place to stay. Easy parking. Easy check in. Wonderful rooms that are more 5 star hotel expectation. We only stayed 1 night and didn't get to try the gastro bar downstairs but it looked great and the menu cleverly pairs a beer or wine with your dish so that's a great start.... More

We spent two nights in June 2014, enjoyed great restaurant and staff. Room was very confortable, clean and well furnished. Complimentary transfer to the theatres was appreciated, so we did not use our car at all during stay.

We stayed in one of the apartments just down the street from the Parlour. The place was super clean with small couch that pulls out into a single bed (made up ready to go), a leather comfy chair, ottoman, table and chairs, stove with oven, sink, full bathroom, closet with hangers, and a queen bed. The bed was bouncy and... More

My husband and I stayed over in king suite room 304 and our biggest complaint was that the mattress was lumpy, slanted and too firm. Restaurant was incredible. Really enjoyed our meals. Bathroom has some sloppy caulking in the Jacuzzi tub. No microwave in the room. Would have been handy. Turn down service is included but we never received any... More

After reading many glowing reviews about this hotel, my husband and I booked one night after seeing a matinee (King Lear - highly recommend the play). We had booked a 'deluxe' room and wow - were we ever disappointed. Pros: The room was clean and large. The bathroom clean and large. Cons: The room was brown and so dreary -... More

I stayed here in May 2014 to attend the Stratford Festival. Great location right in the historic district. Comfortable beds and clean room and a jet tub. Very friendly staff. The restaurant has great food but a tad pricey. If your looking for a more affordable meal. Features within walking distance has everyday good food at great prices. I would... More
