“Old fashioned luxury in the center of town”
Reviewed September 24, 2005

This is a big pub near the center of downtown Stratford, within walking distance of the theatres of the Festival (only two blocks from the Avon and about four from the Patterson) that has luxurious rooms upstairs, like an English pub. The rooms are tastefully furnished and decorated and have wonderful bathrooms and showers. The food downstairs is very good, kind of classy pub food. The pub has an outdoor terrace. The stairs to the rooms are narrow and I did not see an elevator; the infirm should inquire before booking. Service is friendly and unpretentious; you check in for the lodgings in the bar. There is ample free parking in a big lot next to the hotel. It is not cheap ($100+/night double in Sept 2005), but it is cheaper than the fancier beds and breakfasts in Stratford. Only downside is that the drinking on the terrace goes on into the wee hours and you get some noise if you open your window, as I almost always do. There are lots of eateries and shops within an easy walk, including Indigena, a wonderful art gallery that specializes in Inuit sculpture.

By far one of the nicest Inns that I have stayed in. Conveniently located downtown close to all of the shopping and theatres. The rooms are all new, bright and spacious. The Dining room and menu have been recenly up dated with great contemporary cuisine. The Pavlova is a must! All around great service from check in to check out!
