The rooms are lovely, air conditioned & with private baths. They are on the larger side as well. The 2nd floor terrace & the back yard garden are peaceful places to relax. The location of the Inn can'tbe beat--very short walks to any of the Festival theaters. Kevin & Kim are friendly and very helpful inn keepers. They have a... More

The Old Rectory was the perfect home base for our Stratford adventures--delicious breakfasts to get us started each day, walking distance from the two major theatres, close to shops and restaurants. Special thanks go to Kim and Kevin for warmly welcoming and accommodating my teenage daughter on what could have been a very stuffy, grown-up trip. We hope to make... More

This is the second year that we have stayed at the Old Rectory. Kim and Kevin do everything possible to make your stay a pleasant experience. We had tea in the sun room when we arrived and they called round to find us a dinner reservation. The room as before was spotless and quiet. It was a short walk to... More

This is our 18th year at the Old Rectory and it is like coming home. It is always a celebration of the start of summer. It is warm and welcoming and helpful and there are the best breakfasts ever. It is always a big part of a memorable weekend.

We only stayed in The Old Rectory for one night. We were passing through on our way to a meeting in Goderich coming from the East Coast. The Inn is a beautiful older house located in the heart of Stratford. The hosts were warm and welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding! I am sure that... More

We stayed at the Old Rectory for 3 nights May 14 - 17, 2015 and loved every minute of it! The B&B is lovely, in a very convenient location that is midway between the theatres we visited, and walking distance to all the great shops & restaurants in downtown Stratford. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and well decorated. We... More

We recently had the privilege of spending a night at The Old Rectory. It was a heart warming and welcoming experience from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The Conor's even sent us an email before our arrival letting us know about the events scheduled in town that would be occurring the day we arrived. These folks... More

We've been coming from West Michigan to the Stratford Festival for years, often twice during the season. For the past several years, we've stayed at the Old Rectory. By far the best of many Stratford B and Bs we've sampled! Kim and Kevin are exceptional hosts, and we have come to feel as part of an extended family. Accommodations are... More

I stayed here for two nights and wished that it could have been longer. This is no ordinary B&B - in fact, I would call it an inn in size and feel! Kim and Kevin are wonderful hosts. Kim took the time to explain the history of the Rectory and the period pieces that they have added over the years... More

If you are looking for a home base while you attend events at the theatres or simply explore the countryside, this is a wonderful home away from home. It is conveniently located within walking distance to theatres, downtown shopping and great restaurants. Food is delicious and rooms are comfortable and well decorated. Kevin and Kim are knowledgeable and happy to... More
