“Great place to stay”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

This place has it all. The location couldn't be better - within 20 minutes walking time to all of the theaters. Each of the three rooms has it's own bathroom. The food is superb. Each room is equipped with every conceivable creature comfort; for example, the shower heads contain LED lights. Although the B&B is located on a busy street, street noise does not penetrate the rooms. Your hosts will help you to get restaurant reservations and theater tickets. Like virtually all B&Bs, the rooms are on the second floor, so plan and pack accordingly.

Close to main theatre. Room comfortable but over-crowded with knick-knacks. Breakfast excellent with an beautifully prepared fruit plate and a filling cooked plate in addition to cereals etc. . Host very friendly if just a little loquacious.

Room Tip: All the rooms are themed but over-crowded with furniture and knick-knacks for my taste. Well suppli...

We traveled with another couple and stayed here. The room was delightful, the hosts entertaining, and the food outstanding. It was a great bed and breakfast value and a short walk everywhere. Definitely would recommend this B and B!

Room Tip: We stayed in red room and friends stayed in English room. The only difference is the bath in the Eng...

The host of this B & B is very hospitable. The accommodation has everything from a fridge in the room to an automatic soap dispenser. The bedding and linen are first class. We were able to control our own A/C and fan depending on the temperature. There were remote controls for every appliance in the room from the radio to the flat screen TV. The bathroom in our room was too small for two adults with stuff. If we only had had a tooth brush it would have been fine. Another room with the largest bathroom would be preferable in the future. Breakfast was homemade from the delicious scones to the asparagus quiche. Nothing was lacking. We felt very comfortable from the time we arrived to the time we left.

Always good to hear from our visitors and know they enjoyed their visit.

Also any comments on the room size are welcome as it gives others some idea of what we have to offer.

Although the bathroom is small the most important is that it is ensuite which is one of the first things visitors want and location to the theatre.

We recently stayed at the Chisholms and it was a lovely weekend. Attention was paid to every detail, food was excellent, great company. The location is great, we could walk to restaurants, shops and the Theatre. We didn't move the car while staying in Stratford. The English Room is delightful.

Thank you for your review. Yes one of the first things people want is location to the Theatres, restaurants and shopping. When we looked for a B&B location this was the perfect location.

Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. Expect a charming room and a spectacular breakfast. The location is wonderful to the Festival Theatre and even to a brief walk into town. The best B&B we have ever been to; not sure how it can be topped.

Arranged a night's stay for my parents as a treat for my Mom's 83rd birthday. Kent and Diane thought of absolutely everything to celebrate my Mom's day with panache. I accompanied my parents at check in and enjoyed Kent's tour of the home and the English room where they stayed. Literally everything you could want in the little extras has been provided by the Chisholms. I also was invited to share the bountiful and delicious breakfast the next morning, which I should have photographed! My mom was delighted by a photo momento enlargement and vase of flowers very thoughtfully given by Kent and Diane the morning of here big day. My mom couldn't have had a nicer experience to celebrate her birthday. Thank you!
