“What a find!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2007

My husband and I decided to stay at the Mercer Hall Inn for our First Anniversary. I can honestly say without a doubt that it was the nicest room I have ever stayed in! (Far nicer than any of the expensive fancy hotels in Toronto!).

The room (209) was immaculate and beautifully designed. Everything looked brand new. The jacuzzi tub was the most comfortable I have ever used. The bed (with down comforter and pillows) was incredibly luxurious.

Little touches around the place just completed the experience, from the local herbal tea, cookies and apples provided at no extra cost, to the DVD, CD and book libraries.

I have been telling everyone I know that they have to see this place. We had a wonderful time!

I've had multiple stays at Mercer Hall, all in room 303. I love the way Dave Martin (owner) tailors the room to the life available in Ontario: local music CD's, photography and artwork in the rooms. This
teaches as well as comforts.

Rooms are so well made; no cheap furniture to be seen. The view down onto Ontario Street is like watching the town of Bedford Falls from
"It's A Wonderful LIfe".

There was more road noise during this visit which made sleeping a little harder. A fan in the room would be good too in the warmer weather. Food in Tango Bistro is great, and the people who run this ship have now become part of my Stratford stay.

Once again Stratford and Mercer Hall continue to be beautiful ;)

Not as great as I remembered it. More expensive and no breakfast except for the do it yourself coffee in the room and the two cookies you get on arrival. I hate having to pay more and getting less.
I think I'll be looking at something different next year or just won't bother going to Stratford at all as the shows this year were very ho-hum.

Great location; the room was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed; the restaurant downstairs had delicious breakfast food. We'll be back next year!

Stayed at Mercer Hall Inn in May 2007. We've stayed in several places in and around Stratford/St. Mary's and this is our favorite so far. We will definitely go back. The staff was friendly and helpful on our call to book and once we arrived. The room was attractive and had a unbeatable location - right downtown, walking distance to Festival Theater and Avon. We liked walking right down to have breakfast at the Tango cafe and then doing some shopping before the show. Great perk to have downtown parking.

You must go here at least once! What a beautiful place. We were so impressed with the room, the service, staff and the Jazz concert. I cant wait to go back. Very romantic and they went all out with complimentary chocolates, wine and fruit in our room for the valentines day special. We each had a robe also. Best place ever!

We have been regular visitors to Stratford over the years and have found the Mercer Hall Inn to be the best quality and value for the money by far.

Each of the rooms that we have stayed in have been spacious, clean with very comfortable beds. A nice touch are the 4 bottles of water, cookies and fruit in the room when you arrive. Other hotels/inns in Stratford have charged as much as $4.00 per bottle for water on top of more expensive room cost. Additionally, we always receive a delicious daily breakfast included with the room charge.

One of the best things about this property is its location in the heart of a traditional Ontario town. Great shopping, dining and drinks are within a five minute walk. Parking directly to the rear of the property is included.

Best Inn in Stratford, we will definitely return!

  • Liked — Location, quality and value for money.
