It was October and we had wonderful weather in Michigan before we crossed the bridge into Canada when it became cooler and then went into rain all 3 days we were... More

We spent our anniversary here in December and were very pleased with the quality and privacy of the room. We had a 2 room suite with gas fireplace in the old part of the hotel. Everything is well-maintained and we appreciated the anniversary gift of chocolates which greeted us. The only "complaint" was with the floors in the room and... More

Great Hotel Rooms. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. The Service and Food in the Restaurant all fantastic. Definitely a hidden gem for Stratford. They even offer a shuttle service. Another reason to spend a little more time in the hotel pub. All that is missing is a pool!

Well located in town. If you like old buildings this is the genuine article. Up to date. The food is reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Decent little workout room in the basement. Adequate parking and the liquor store is across the street! You can easily walk to other local restaurants.
