“A lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The Chisholms has everything you could imagine - and more - to make your stay perfect. The location is very convenient. It is within a pleasant walk of the centre of Stratford. Our room was very comfortable, immaculately clean and filled with many extras. Breakfast was super-delicious and we enjoyed Kent's tales of Stratford and the theatre. I hope we can return soon!

My wife and I just spent two wonderful evenings at the Chisholm's. Both Kent and Diane, the owners, were very personable and welcoming as we arrived. The rooms and the bathroom facilities are first rate and VERY clean! The breakfasts were meticulously prepared and presented.The DVDs outlining the history ofthedevelopment of Stratford festival were helpful and worth watching. Kent gave good insider information for places to eat and we were able to walk to all the plays and restaurants we chose. Overall, I would rate our stay as a 10/10!!

Room Tip: Only one room has a bathtub so,if you are a Beth person, you may wish to request that room.

Chisholms is a beautiful B&B. Rooms are well-appointed and breakfast is fabulous. The hosts, Diane and Kent, are informative and delightful. Kent tells wonderful theatre stories. Location is perfect - 15 minute walk (maximum) to the theatres and shopping/dining district. I travelled with my teenage daughter and it was tremendous time. Highly recommend.

This is the second visit to The Chisholms for my wife and I and there was just no other choice for us.
The B&B is a close walk to both the Avon and Festival theatres, the beautiful Avon river and the downtown restaurants and shopping. This year we enjoyed the play "Tommy" at the Avon Theatre.
Before the theatre, we had a delicious and good value Italian dinner at Fellini's. We had two salads and shared a pizza and with wine/beer the bill was under $50.
Our accommodations in the "Touch of Asia" room were ideal. We found the room well equipped, quiet and comfortable. We also appreciated the fridge stocked with complimentary water and juices and the special touches in the room.
The breakfast was delicious and consisted of fresh fruit, muffins, waffles, sausages and beverages.
We are looking forward to our return trip next year.

What an experience!! We have stayed at a number of B&B over the years but I must say this one really impressed us . The comforts provided in the room was over the top. Having a coffee maker, with teas and coffees chocolates, candies ,cookies , and a well stocked fridge right in the room was wonderful. The wing back chairs and reading lights to read at night was such a treat. The bathrooms were luxurious and the claw footed bathtub was the icing on the cake for me!! The breakfast was delicious and I m sorry now that I did not help myself to the home made muffins for the road as you offered. A truly relaxing weekend stay. You cant beat the location - you are able to walk to the theaters and restaurants in no time. Thank you Kent and Diane for wonderful, memorable stay in Stratford.

Room Tip: Must have the English Room with the claw bath tub - divine luxury!!!

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. The owners are extremely friendly and bend over backwards to see that your stay is the best. It is centrally located with a less than 15 minute walk from all the theatres and restaurants. The room we had was warm and inviting from the welcome candies and chocolates to the free water, juices and pop in the in room bar fridge. We also had a coffee maker with a huge selection of coffees and teas. The comfy king bed was very relaxing. The breakfast spread we incredible with warm muffins, bread, scones, fruit in the first course to the pancakes, peameal bacon, sausages or quiche we had in the second course. We were so full from breakfast one day we split a burger and fries for lunch. If you are staying overnight in Stratford the Chisholms is a must.

We spent the past weekend at the Chisholms and were made to feel very welcome (by both the hosts and their adorable dogs!) and comfortable in this beautiful home. The house is conveniently located about a 10 minute walk from downtown Stratford and from the theatres. I was a bit concerned that it might be noisy at night since it is on a main street, but it was very quiet - no traffic noise at all even though our room was at the front of the house. The hosts are very knowledgeable about Stratford and the festival. Copies of programs and information about attractions were easily available, and there is a computer for the use of guests. Our room was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and very well appointed; for example, even though we didn't need them, I was very impressed that extra toothbrushes and toothpaste and other things we might have forgotten were provided in the room. The breakfasts were abundant and delicious; I found the portion size of the fruit a bit overwhelming - felt guilty not eating it all, but I knew there was more to come! And the extra muffins for the road were much appreciated. The large verandah is a great place to sit and relax and watch the world go by. All in all, a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: We peeked into the other rooms after the occupants had left and they all look equally lovely.
