Over the years, while visiting the Stratford festival, I have frequented this restaurant many times. The overall experience at your restaurant has been outstanding, from the ambience, food and decor. However, tonight while visiting the restaurant the hostess was blatantly rude and insulting. Our family had booked a reservation, under the assumption that it would be honoured. Due to some... More

I reserved this hotel with Expedia and received a confirmation that two rooms were booked and that there was no need to reconfirm. Days later, I received a call from the hotel saying that in fact they only had one room available. I was in Northern Ontario at the time and did not receive the message right away. When I... More

We had a great stay at Foster's Inn, including enjoying dinner and breakfast the next morning at the attached restaurant. The room was clean and pretty, and the staff were extremely friendly. The only complaint was that we couldn't get the Wifi to work, which was something we needed. I did call down to Reception, and their suggestions on how... More

Location, Location, Location! Steps from the Avon Theatre and downtown Stratford Fosters Inn is a treasure. High ceilings, eclectic decor, comfortable beds and skylights make each room unique and inviting. Above a good bar and restaurant you don't even have to leave the building for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner.

Located on Downie, lot of restaurants nearby including city hall and tourism office. When booked thought it was inn and when I got there was a restaurant and pub that served Guinness so hit nirvana. Building circa 1907 is an eclectic layout, interesting and we had room 201. Tall rooms. Cool. Price and locale and when all combined can't get... More

Foster's Inn offers beautiful rooms, a central location and a terrific restaurant and lounge right downstairs. Our third floor room had 14 foot ceilings, nice artwork, and a very comfortable king-sized bed. The inn is steps from the Avon Theatre so it is a perfect choice for a visit to Stratford. We will definitely return.

We had dinner at Foster's Inn before seeing a play at The Studio Theater. The restaurant offers a comprehensive menu. Many patrons ordered the steaks. We preferred to order salads. The portions were large. I ordered a warm shrimp salad that contained an interesting combination of greens, blueberries, cheese, and large grilled shrimp. In addition, it was one of the... More

Great room. Old style charm hardwood floors very clean and a modern bathroom with a huge standup shower. Loved the location with it's close proximity to all the shops and short walk to the river walk. If you have never stayed here try it at least once and enjoy the charm that foster's has. The restaurant has a wonderful selection... More

Our annual pilgrimage to Stratford is highlighted by great theater and punctuated by our stay at Foster's. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Service is excellent. Rooms are comfortable and the food and drinks can't be beat.

5 years ago we discovered Foster's while on a business trip, and now return 2 or 3 times each year when in the area for business. Great food, friendly helpful staff, love the rooms, and Craig the owner goes so far above and beyond to make his customers happy! When we were leaving for the day to work (at 6:30... More
