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

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
