We checked into Foster's Inn (1 p.m. check in ,Nice) Great room,great host checking in ,Brandon. We decided to eat there as well as it was real cold and we didn't feel like leaving. Dinner was excellent, Tenderloin for myself and Steak Nicoise salad for my wife. We were very pleased. Service was again excellent and we got the bonus... More

I stayed at Foster's Inn for one night while in Stratford for business. It's a charming place. My room was huge with comfortable and stylish furnishings. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Clean. Free wifi. Cable TV. I'd definitely come to stay again.

We stayed here for two nights while "doing" the Festival and were very pleasantly surprised. I was a bit concerned that staying in an inn located over a pub might prove un-restful. However, we heard no noise from downstairs (and it was busy) and the lodgings were very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Also, the location on Downie street, is... More

What was good. Caesars. And service....price over the top. Next... More

Just stopped in for a quick lunch before a play at the Festival Theatre. Really nice atmosphere and the service was first rate. I liked the open kitchen, too. The mussels were really good, although the pizza was a bit lacklustre and a tad undercooked. But a minor criticism. I'd definitely recommend Foster's.

Inside Foster’s Inn, we suddenly notice that it’s raining quite hard outside and that we have only 15 minutes left before curtain and our play (Man of La Mancha) begins at the Festival’s Avon Theatre on Downie Street. Nonetheless, we really don’t care, because the inn is literally steps away from the theatre, thus mirroring the famous real-estate mantra: “Location,... More

I was a bit skeptical as I walked up towards the hotel/restaurant. I was visiting Stratford for the first time, and didn't really know anything about the area. I was pleasantly surprised as I entered the room; like a guest room in an old house, but very roomy with modern amenities. I've been more and more impressed with the hotel... More

We were in Stratford on business and we were booked at Foster's. As we approached I was a little concerned but we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff is great and very helpful. Reading the negative reviews I have to believe those reviewers don't travel much. The restaurant is very good as well. Parking... More

Our room (201) was pleasant and well appointed. Very light and airy. However, both nights there was loud music from the bar or kitchen. Room 203 is very dark and has only one window. There is no parking nearby; the hotel staff recommend using the Municipal Lot that is a couple of blocks away. We were able to find a... More

We decided on a last minute trip to Stratford after receiving some gift cards from life essentials.The Foster's Inn was the only Motel in Stratford on the list.The room was just the right size seeing you don't travel to stay in the room anyway(but if you do the TV could have been bigger)...the bed&pillows were comfy....the bathroom was spacious&bright....floor did...
