Absolutely perfect! This place is stellar! From the helpful staff, to the incredible food, to the suites, to the attention to detail, you will not be disappointed. This hotel rates as one of the top small hotels we’ve visited. It is conveniently located close to the heart of Stratford, the theatre, the park, and the river. Suites are beautifully appointed, comfortable, and very large. Room service is excellent and the staff are very attentive to your needs, whatever they may be. We had the tasting menu with wines for dinner in The Bruce restaurant. Every course was delicious and on par with a Cordon Bleu meal; unique, creative, seasonal, artistic, and tasty! Breakfasts were equally delicious. They even have shuttle for guests.

I am still here enjoying my morning tea and could not wait to share my review. From the moment we walked in the doors we felt welcomed and the service has been outstanding. The attention to detail here is incredible. Every single thing has intention and clearly been given so much thought. Finding sweet little quotes everywhere (even on the card for the wifi password) treats in the room (the fortune cookies at turn down were amazing), the cookie hotline (I mean who doesn’t want unlimited cookies at the touch of a button!) and truly the nicest team. The restaurant was unforgettable. Each course was a WOW! Don’t be afraid to try something new as they execute everything so well. This is a special spot and I will definitely be back.

I was able to visit Canada again over the Labor Day weekend and stay at the Bruce Hotel in Stratford. This is an extraordinary property - the hotel is elegant yet intimate and welcoming. Rooms are luxurious and beautifully kept with the most elegant bathroom, bedroom and sitting area. Most impressive, however, is the level of service and guest care. And, as for the restaurant, I cannot say enough about the wonderful and interesting flavors and gorgeous presentation. The Bruce simply knocks it out of the park and I am so happy that I can visit again from the US!

We were looking for one night at the Bruce after attending an evening at the Stratford Festival and we decided to add one extra night to try their dinner tasting Menu with wine pairing. The food and the wine pairing was out of this world. It is equivalent or better to the Michelin star French restaurants that we frequent annually on our holidays in France. We were served thirteen dishes over a 4 hour plus dinner, accompanied by extraordinary wines. The Chef Brandon Clemens is outstanding. Over overall experience at the Bruce was top notch from the moment we set foot on the property. very courteous reception, easy going and everyone working were attentive to details . The rooms were large, modern and very comfortable. Can't wait to go back.

We chose this hotel for our honeymoon and we have been pampered from the moment we stepped into the lobby. We were escorted to our suite where champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waited for us. The bed was luxurious and the bathroom is 5 star luxury. The photos on the website do not show the beautiful high end finishes. Our morning started with our fresh French press coffee brought to our our room at our designated time which we drank in our robe and slippers on our private balcony. We spent the day exploring the town and walked from the hotel which backs onto the park where the festival theatre is located. It’s a short walk along the River to downtown. We ate dinner at the restaurant and were spoiled with the wagyu burgers and a small live production on the patio. We are looking forward to our round of golf at the Stratford Golf and Country club.
