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

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.

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.)
