This was our 5th or 6th visit and we were once again not disappointed! We are well traveled and have yet to encounter a better B&B experience. The attention to detail goes well beyond the accommodations. Liz, the owner, is knowledgable about the Festival, the season's plays, local restaurants, and much more. The Bard & Breakfast is an important part... More

My experience at the Bard and Breakfast was excellent: the lovely host, Elizabeth, provided everything that one could need and more, leaving no detail forgotten. The beds were extremely comfortable, breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the location of this pretty property could not be better. All in all a terrific experience.

This 2 room B&B is located within short walking distance of the festival theatre. Very good breakfasts, very amiable host and beautiful gardens. We brought bikes which the host allowed us to keep in her shed instead of on our bike rack. Bike trails are close by. Only downside is a shared bathroom, but this didn't really cause any problems...

My daughter and I made a road trip to Ontario to relax and explore and we stayed three nights at the Bard and Breakfast. Both of the plays we saw were at the Festival Theatre which could not be more convenient to this B&B. We just crossed the street to the park and took a pleasant stroll for a few... More

We came to Stratford festival for one night and stayed at Bard & Breakfast. We ended up renting Hamlet room where two beds were put together into one king bed. It worked out great. My husband and I love active vacations, so we do not spend too much time inside, we also do not mind walking. Some may find this... More

This is our third stay at the Bard and Breakfast. This B&B is perfect. It's small (only two rooms, shared bath), literally three blocks from the Festival Playhouse, with fabulous cottage gardens in the front and back yard. The best part is Liz! She is an excellent hostess and so willing to please. We park our car and walk for... More

We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed this small B&B with first-floor accommodations, shared spotless bathroom complete with fresh towels and quality bath products, wireless, parking and really, really good breakfast! But what made the stay was the hostess. Liz was knowledgeable, super efficient regarding any requests and/or questions and just a very nice person. We loved the short,... More

We spent a couple of nights here to catch some Stratford shows at the end of a weeklong tour around SW Ontario. The house, and its owner, are delightful. The sitting room for guests has a small fridge and fixings to make tea. There is a pleasant sunroom at the front and a couple of seats on a small deck... More

It was a last-minute decision, to see a play in Stratford, ON, and to stay at a B&B priced at under $100. Most of the B&B's were solidly booked. But because The Bard and Breakfast does not book directly via the Theater site, I thought I might have a chance... and I was right. All communication with the owner, Elizabeth,... More
