We have stayed in several B & B's in Stratford over the years. The Old Rectory is by far the best! As other reviews say; great location, great rooms, wonderful breakfasts, and outstanding hosts. The Sunroom was an excellent place to meet, relax and discuss the plays. That experience really enhanced the visit to Stratford.

As "first timers" to The Old Rectory we were unaware of what an experience it is. From our charming hosts -- Kevin, Kim and Connor -- to the quaint house, picture perfect rooms, and bountiful breakfasts, we quickly understood why they are celebrating 20 years in business. It's perfectly located within easy walking distance to the theaters, restaurants and shopping... More

This was our second stay at the Old Rectory. Kim and Kevin are very gracious hosts, they have been doing this for twenty years and have got it right. Kevin cooks up a wonderful breakfast,including home made yogurt and jams, a different muffin or scones each morning. Wonderful location for downtown and the theaters. You can't go wrong staying here.... More

From the warm welcome to the delicious breakfast to the location, everything about the Old Rectory is perfect! Kim and Keven were so hospitable, giving us suggestions for dining (excellent), things to do (apart from the theatre) and providing a place to leave our car while we saw a matinee at the theatre even though we had checked out!

The b&b is one the best we have every stayed. It was a short walk to downtown as well as all the theaters. It is lovely and warm and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding the next morning.

My stay at The Rectory is always a highlight of the year.They are wonderful hosts as well as their beautiful town.I hate to say too many good things because it's a hidden jewel and I'm selfish to want to keep it that way.

Thank you for the kind words. As we approach our 20th year, we can't agree with you more-we like flying under the radar a little as it's keeps life quite intimate and less frenetic. More
