For three years now my husband and I have stayed at the Parlour Inn Stratford on Christmas night. We do a lot of driving and extra activity over the month of December and the first year we decided we needed to stay over. The rooms are excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and the food the next morning was amazing.... More

Same as my mom wrote below. Amazing weekend. Loved the jacuzzi tub and the spacious room! Very quiet and quaint setting. My mom loved the antiques in the room. Very close walk to downtown and I felt very comfortable leaving my cat parked for a few days. Thanks again. See ya next year!

I just returned from The Parlour Inn...my annual Mom/Daughter weekend in Stratford. We had the best time! We were greeted by a very nice young man! We were so pleased when we walked into our room...beautifully decorated, some nice antiques, a keurig coffee machine, a box of delicious chocolates. Small fridge that kept our wine cold and nice (real glass)... More

Parlour Inn was everything I expected it to be and more. The old world charm and modern amenities were a perfect blend. Price was affordable for a one bedroom suite ... microwave, fridge, keurig, bathrobes made stay more comfortable ... the rose on the pillow upon return from dinner was a totally unexpected but lovely surprise.

Two friends and I stayed one night at the Parlour Inn, and saw two plays. The Inn has been very well restored to modernity. The two-bedroom, two-bath suite easily accommodated us with a pull-out sofa. There are lots of really nice touches: Kuerig machine, free shuttle to and from the theatres, comfortable bar and pub downstairs, bathrobes, nice bath products,... More

The 28 room Parlour Inn may consider itself a boutique, but the rooms are definitely on par with any large upscale hotel. The sitting room included a fold out sofa, flat screen TV, and small kitchen area, with a stocked Kuerig machine, small fridge, and bar sink - perfect for cocktails before heading out to catch a play. Separated bath... More

We stayed at this old inn in Stratford. Well renovated, quiet, large size rooms, a big elevator, and the expected high price in Shakespeare country. Walking distance to good restos (The Prune, Mercer Hall), and a very convenient shuttle van to and from the Festival Theatre. The only jarring minor note--a brassy desk clerk with a voice that'd cut glass.
