This is a very good B&B in Stratford, hosted by a lively and multi-talented couple, Karen and Jack. We chose a comfortable smaller room downstairs but the larger upstairs rooms are very attractive also. Breakfast was very good and Karen paid special attention to our dietary needs. The house is a delight, filled with lots of neat artistic touches: ornaments,...

Well, what can I say...My Family has been staying at Acrylic Dreams every time we go to the Stratford Festival since I was in College in the 80's, and that's a long time...Why are we so loyal?

Our hosts were outstanding! We loved the atmosphere, the quality of our breakfasts and cleanliness of our room. We had a lovely sitting area where we could talk till the wee hours over a bottle of wine without disturbing other guests.

Acrylic Dreams is a quiet, welcoming, scrupulously clean B&B with great breakfasts. It is situated in a historic building dating from 1879. It is located about 20 minutes walk from all of the theatres and the restaurant/shopping area. There is onsite parking available which makes coming "home" late at night after a performance a breeze. The hosts are friendly, professional...

Acrylic Dreams is a perfect Bed and Breakfast for a Stratford stay. We stayed in the larger room at the back of the house; a beautiful extension designed to match the rest of the 19th century house. Karen and Jack made a delicious, healthy breakfast of multi grain pancakes, fruits, yoghurts and nuts. We stayed for a luxurious chair massage...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying with Karen and Jack on Friday. At first appearance, the house projects comfort, art, and quiet relaxation. This was all confirmed with our well-appointed room, eclectic artsy decor, and scrumptious breakfast. It turns out that Karen & Jack are great lovers of Paris, as are we - so we had a...
