We have stayed here a few times, and it feels like home to us. The hosts are wonderful people, the food and atmosphere are always impeccable. The hosts Elena and Dom go out of their way to show their guests incomparable service. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on our trips to the area.

We stayed at this B & B for two nights in September. Elena and Dom were friendly, informative and gracious hosts. Elena is a marvelous cook, the breakfasts were tasty, included fresh local fruits and were artfully presented. Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. Elena and Dom are knowledgeable about the different restaurants, markets, local events and plays. We have stayed at other B&Bs in Stratford-this one is special and one we will visit again.

Dear L., we are glad you enjoyed staying with us and exploring our town. It was great to see your hubby and another guest not wanting to leave the table after breakfast. Should you return to Stratford, we hope you will stay with us again.

We stayed at Birmingham Manor for two nights in October. Elena and Dom were gracious hosts and went out of their way to accommodate my dietary restrictions. Even with the limitations the food was amazing! It was so well presented and the flavours excellent. Elena is a first class baker. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Everything in the home draws you in to an immersive 'Stratford Experience'. We found it an easy walk to the downtown; a bit far to the Festival Theatre though. We had a wonderful holiday with Dom and Elena. They are so knowledgeable on all things Stratford and gave good advice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Windsor. It has a bathroom down the hall that is still exclusive and the most beaut...

I recently stayed 3 nights in early October, 2013. Dom and Elena met me at the door and I immediately knew I was in the right place - such warm people and their house is gorgeous! The B & B is spotless,well decorated and comfortable. I have saved the best for last - the breakfasts were "to die for" - 3 courses. All homemade and just amazing. I would definitely recommend this lovely B&B to everyone. I'll be back.

We spent four nights here in August 2013. One night was in the one room without ensuite and the other nights with a connected bath. Both rooms were lovely and the room with the bath down the hall IS private but just not connected to the room. Both rooms were well appointed and very tastefully decorated. Although the rooms are not directly air conditioned the air conditioning in the hall kept the rooms cool even on two very warm days.

The location is a short (10min) walk from the center of town in a quiet residential area but we took a couple of longer routes through some nature areas to make for more of a walk. Two of the main theaters are in the center of town and so we could easily walk to them for any performance. The festival theater is more like a 25 minute walk so you may want to drive to that. All in all the B&B is very conveniently located.

The best for last. The host and hostess are simply lovely people who will do anything to help make your stay in Stratford a rewarding one. We were very pleased to have met them and had more than one delightful conversation together. And the breakfasts..... three courses of delectable food with each morning a surprise... no eggs and bacon here. For instance, one morning we started with a large plate of a variety of fresh fruits (for each person), followed by a nest of puff pastry containing a wonderful egg omelet and vegetables on the side, and finished with a delicious chocolate pot de creme delicately flavored with lavender. It was difficult to drag ourselves away from the table with the food, the companionship of the other guests (you all sit at the same table), and conversation with the owners, Elena and Dom.

We have used B&B's across the USA, Canada, and Britain and we rate the Birmingham Manor with the best of them. Book it if you can, that is, book early as we are certain they are building a very loyal repeat clientele.

Thank D. and J. for your lovely review. We loved hosting you, learning about your extensive travels and how much you like Canada! Hope your visit to the wilderness following Stratford was a blast and not too tiring. Thank you also for grouping us with the best of your experiences, much obliged. Our house is a very old lady, 110 soon, still in great shape with minor complaints…the whole house is air-conditioned and, although odd looking, the vents are in each room, in the ceiling…glad to know our newly installed super air conditioner did the job of keeping you cool in very hot weather!

This is a very friendly B and B. The owners are as personable as they can be--very helpful. The breakfast was amazing. The facility was beautiful--very homey. Walking to downtown was certainly doable. The home was very quiet--mattresses were good.

Room Tip: All rooms are comparable, except one has a bathroom down the hall
