All accommodations were excellent, staff was very friendly and helpful. Meals were excellent and well presented. Prices were reasonable for food when compared with local spots. Restaurant also had a nice variety of food. Breakfasts were outstanding. Manager was very helpful. Shuttle van is service available upon request.

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.

This hotel is no longer operated as Best Western, but is part of a small group of historic hotels known as 'Vintage Hotel' that operate primarily out of Niagara-on-the-Lake.This hotel is quaint with modern amenities in a traditional setting. The rooms are relatively small but very clean, however the beds are uncomfortable unless you like a hard mattress, plus they... More

Theatre lovers, my boyfriend and I came up to Straford in August to see some shows. We previously stayed with Vintage Hotels earlier in the season when seeing shows in Niagara-On-The-Lake so we decided to stay in the Parlour Inn for a similar experience. The front desk staff were very friendly and even suggested something I have never heard of... More

My friends and I have been going to Stratford for about 15 years staying at B&Bs for the first ten or so years. For the last few years we stayed at The Parlour Inn (when it was a Best Western). We were very pleasantly surprised by the change to a Vintage hotel. The rooms, as always, were comfortable and clean.... More

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...
