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

I entered the main house of the peaceful Old Rectory from the kitchen, where fresh buns filled the counter tops, and the scent told me that I was in a place of past, present and future memories. It was end of theatre season and I was asked to select a room. I chose one on the second floor w Juliette... More

Hospitality, comfort and fine food: You won't find better in Stafford or in most other places you may visit. And did I mention convenience? The Old Rectory is located only a few blocks from downtown and the main venues of the Stafford Festival. If you are theater-goers and don't mind a short stroll, that means a lot. It means you...

Great food, comfortable rooms and gathering spots. Kim and Kevin are so welcoming and tied in to everything going on in town -- the best places, what's new, etc. It's like home, only ten times better.

My best friend and I meet up in Stratford annually, and one of the best parts of the trip is returning to the Old Rectory. Kim and Kevin are excellent hosts and excellent cooks. We feel very relaxed and at home there, and being able to have a delicious dinner at the Old Rectory before heading out to the theatre... More
