Wow, what a wonderful surprise on our mini-getaway to Stratford. We had never stayed in a Vintage-brand hotel before, and the Parlour Inn blew away all our expectations. Incredibly attentive and helpful staff. Well-appointed room that looked out onto downtown Stratford. 24 hour gym, and a computer with a printer!! (Key when you forget to print your tickets.) It was... More

We've traveled to Stratford, Ontario for the great theater productions for about 10 years running. The theater has always been so terrific - it always harkens us back for another season. A recurrent, major problem, however, was finding suitable lodging within walking distance to all the venues. Apart from nice bed and breakfasts in the area, a great hotel with... More

I was so pleased with my stay at the Parlour Inn. In fact, my brief overnight stay in Stratford overall was just wonderful. I came to see an afternoon matinee and didn't want to be rushed to head home to Toronto so I chose the Parlour Inn. The room was more expensive than I expected, but that's Stratford. The rooms...

My wife and I stayed on the third floor of the Parlour. I read decent reviews and we were there to see some plays last weekend. When we got into the room (I believe room 306), it was THE SMALLEST room I've ever been in at approximately 10 feet wide by 15 feet long plus a small bathroom. It barely... More

This was my favorite hotel in Stratford. It remains historic, charming, and a short walk to theaters and shopping. The restaurant still serves delicious food. The rooms are filled with antiques, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, and numerous amenities. The original owners renovated it with love, then became affiliated with Best Western. The Best Western years were good... More

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
