After reading the reviews of The Parlour Inn I was afraid that our room for four might be a little cramped. I could not have been more wrong. The room and the bathroom were large and nicely appointed with comfortable beds and large fluffy towels. There were even roses on our beds when we returned from the theatre. We were... More

Each year, my mother and I travel to the Stratford Festival to see the great shows. This year, we decided to book a stay at The Parlour Inn after staying at three different places over the past 15 years. We will be back! Parking was convenient. The elevator was a nice feature. All staff were extremely helpful and pleasant! The... More

We had the queen supreme room and it was beautiful. I love the antiques and stained glass windows. The jet tub was very soothing at night too. Extra touches such as turn down service was really nice too! We ate in the dining room and had beef Wellington, bread loaf and a super dessert. The location was superb too! We... More

Stayed here only one night as I was passing through Stratford. Well located. Close to everything by foot. Did not try the restaurant on site. Room was worthy of a palace or castle! Beautiful furniture and decorated with luxurious old style. Comfortable beds. A/C was loud but efficient. Great service at reception. Free parking. Free wifi. Will most definitely stay... More

We stayed here while visiting Stratford for the first time. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The hotel had a vintage look and was located within walking distance to many of the sites in Stratford. It was our anniversary and they left us a card and chocolates. :) There are a... More

If you've stayed at other Vintage Hotel properties in Niagara-on-the-Lake you'll be disappointed if you're expecting the same type of experience at The Parlour Inn. While more than adequate, this hotel lacks the ambiance of other Vintage properties. Decor is dark and dreary and the room decor is uninspired - to be generous. That said, given that we paid under...

Had an Excellent stay at the Parlour Inn, everyone was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our lunch at the onsite Restrauant. Room was excellent and the Inn was right downtown. They had a shuttle that took us right to the theatre and brought us back to the Inn. Would definitely stay at the Inn when I return to Stratford.
