Stayed two nights with friends for shopping and a play. Rooms were spacious, charming and very comfortable. The staff is accommodating and pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. Centrally located, close to theatres, shopping and dining. Would love to return.

Wow, what a winning staff in a wonderful hotel. We were in Stratford for a 4-day/3-night relaxing get-away. We walked our faces off - around Lake Victoria and the quaint neighborhoods, at least a couple of times each day. The Parlour Inn is in the right spot to access all the downtown shops (and the lake walk-about). It has everything... More

We travelled to Stratford for a restful weekend at the end of March Break. We had stayed at another Vintage Hotel - The Prince of Wales in Niagara -on- the- Lake, but we preferred this one! We had a king room on the top floor, just on the corner. Although it was next to the elevator shaft, it was very... More

Having to travel to Stratford to visit my husband's brother who was in the Stratford hospital after suffering a stroke, we selected The Parlour Inn for lodging because it was only 10 minutes from the hospital. Since we planned on staying in Stratford for a week, we needed lodging that offered suites with a separate living area with a mirowave... More

Lovely little old hotel. Stayed in a very small room, but it had everything we needed. Major character! So quaint and quiet and charming. Dinner in the restaurant was very very good. A very nice escape for an evening, and wonderful that it wasn't a "cookie cutter" room.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Parlour Inn. We found the front desk staff very helpful professional and courteous. The room we stayed in was excellent. We had dinner twice at the Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the pub décor, our meals and service. We have been at the Parlour Inn before and will return.

This little hotel was one of the most comfortable and cozy hotels I have stayed at. I was there for only a night and I found I had a great sleep and breakfast. The room was clean but also had a feeling of being homey and cocoon-like. It even has a petite gym allowing me to get in my exercise... More

We picked the Parlour Inn for a low-key Valentine's Day getaway. The front desk staff was friendly and informative and the building very accessible - part of the reason we picked it as my partner has physical limitations - keep this in mind later in the review. We chose the King jacuzzi suite, which was clean and comfortable. For a... More

I stayed here 2 night this week. Great modern and quite. Good food and great staff. Stay here on my recommendation. It's a great chapter to any trip loved it and will return. Better than most places in the area and worth every dollar spent. The flower in the room was a nice touch
