This was my first visit to Stratford with friends and we stayed at the Avery House. The house was very comfortable, clean and roomy. John and Amanda were very welcoming and informative about the community. Breakfast was absolutely fabulous!! Loved the social atmosphere and the ability to get to know the hosts. Would definitely return and recommend it to anyone visiting.

Hi Laura!

Like the previous review, we were so pleased to host you and your friends here at Avery House. Yes, the social breakfast scene is a big part of the B&B experience, and especially here, where we often have 12 avid theatre fans reflecting on the previous day's performances, laughing, and connecting. So many wonderful conversations and friendships have been formed that way.

Glad you enjoyed the breakfasts, the house, the town, and the theatre. Hope we will see the four of you again another time.

Thanks.

Recently stayed for 2 nights at Avery House and it is the best B & B I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many. The home is perfectly situated with quick walks to town. It is beautifully appointed with something interesting in every corner! Our room was a wonderful surprise as we could go outside on the deck over the porch and people watch. Amanda and John are wonderful hosts and the food is exceptional. Can't wait to return.

Hi Marilyn,

We are so happy that you enjoyed your time here! It was great to meet you and your friends, and so pleased that you were able to take advantage of the patio to watch the comings and goings. It is always nice to hear that folks appreciated our breakfasts. Hope you will all come back and see us again next year!

A friend and I stayed at Avery House recently and I was so impressed by the roominess comfort,cleanliness and decor of the room. The breakfast was delicious and you are left with the feeling that Amanda and John care very much about their guest's experience. They attend to every detail.
I will be back in the new Theatre season !

Had never stayed at a B&B before and this was a great first time experience! John and Amanda were very welcoming and relaxed. The room was immaculate, comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts were very tasty and a quick walk to shopping/theatre/restaurants. Since it was our anniversary, J&A had left some special chocolates for us to enjoy too - thanks!!
Excellent friendly communication before, during and after our visit. Couldn't have asked for better and we will definitely looking forward to a return visit!

A friend and I recently stayed at The Avery House and were thrilled with our stay. Not only was it within walking distance of the two theaters where we saw several performances but also, it is very close to many great restaurants. The accommodations far surpassed our expectations. The attention to detail of the two hosts was incredible. They promptly responded to all our requests and the breakfasts were some of the best I have had at B&Bs. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is planning a visit to Stratford

Hi C,

Thanks so much for staying with us. We're really happy that you and M had a pleasant visit, and were able to walk everywhere. We appreciate the feedback on the sleep quality... most guests rave about the linens and a great night's sleep, and so we were sorry to hear that you found the bed too firm. We'll definitely look at that and see if we can improve, with out it becoming too soft (kind a Goldilocks balancing act!).

Hope to see you both again soon.

Avery House is a beautifully decorated B&B with wonderful gracious hosts. Our room was roomy with a very comfortable bed, two chairs for reading, a spacious bathroom and a patio with it's own entrance. We spent three days there and the breakfasts' were delicious and John and Amanda couldn't have been nicer. With a lovely town and Shakespeare theater nearby what else could you possibly want.

We were naturally taken aback on receiving Judy's e-mail informing us that Avery House was to change hands.
Our past experiences at the B&B were so pleasurable and knowing how caring a host Judy was we felt sure she would leave the Avery House in very capable hands.
We knew that all would be well when we received a pre visit e-mail from John inquiring about any food related allergies etc. and offering his options for any dish we might not be able to eat.
This was one of the best summers we have spent in Stratford in over 30 years and we have John, Amanda and the Stratford Festival to thank.
The Avery House was as wonderful as ever.
John and Amanda are the perfect hosts for this centrally located and busy B&B.
They have made wonderful changes at the house, John is a creative and very caring cook, they both engage most warmly with the guests and are so willing to accommodate any small request.
We stayed for 2 extended periods during the summer and made one day trip in order to see 9 shows, 8 of which we declared to be spectacular.
The fabulous food, as explained in previous e-mails, remains the highlight of this establishment.
Served around the beautiful large dining table it became the time we loved most as we could talk about theatre, food and life in general before heading out for the day.
We wish John and Amanda much success at the Avery House. They have worked hard to make their B&B a sought after destination for Stratford lovers.
We look forward to their warm hospitality( and outstanding breakfasts for many years to come.

Hi Rivvi,

Thanks so much for the glowing review. We are so pleased that you and F enjoyed both visits! We can completely understand - we were guests of Judy's and Sue's for nine of their 10 years owning Avery House, and we would have been quite nervous to learn that new folks had taken over.

On the other hand, loyal guests like you both have been a delight for us to host. In fact, we've had a few guests who have been coming to Avery House for over 20 years, and we are their third owners!!

It took us a little while to deduce who "Rivvi" was, but we figured it out! Very much looking forward to seeing you and F again next year.

Have a great autumn, and we'll connect in the new year to confirm all the details.

Thanks again.
