Ariel's Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #33 of 88 Stratford B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We never felt comfortable at this inn. If we started down the steps to the first floor the owners rushed to the hall to meet us. We felt like they wanted to see what we were doing. At every other B&B we haved stayed at the owners welcomed us to browse in the living room and dining room for books, games, or to watch tv. It left me feeling uneasy.

Breakfasr was fair with over spiced potatoes that were unedible. We did enjoy the Tassimo coffee maker. Our towels were somewhat old and needed replaced. The room and bath were very small.

Location is the best part of this inn. Only 1 block to the Festival Theatre and a 10 minute walk to downtown. Parking is in the back of the inn but very tight. The front of the inn was extremely dark when we got back from our show at the Festival. We had difficulty finding our way onto the screened porch and into the front hall.

We stay elsewhere next time.

Dragoms: I'm sorry to learn your stay at ARIEL's was less than fantastic. As new owners we took the property over in 2016. The place has a new vibe, chef inspired breakfasts, landscape lighting and fluffy white towels. If your back in town, stop by - we'd love to show off the new look.and make sure you're comfortable before giving us a try!

Very cozy B&B within walking distance to theaters and restaurants. Brad and Jaye are very down-to-earth and welcoming from the minute you step in their home. Rooms are small but very efficient and the bed was great! Breakfast was awesome and ample.
Great price for Stratford!
