My wife and I have attended the Stratford Shakespeare Festival almost every year for the past 50 years and have stayed in dozens of Stratford B & Bs over that period of time.
For the last three years we have stayed at the Ballantyne House, and find it to be charming.
The location is perfect, but a few steps from the flagship Festival Theatre, and yet in a quiet neighborhood. The house is immaculate and the beds quite comfortable.
Breakfast is a real treat.
Above all, Ralph and Marlene Robinson, the owners, are most gracious hosts.
