Stone Willow Inn
Ranked #7 of 7 St. Marys B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We stayed here for a wedding. The wedding was in their large tent and it was very nice. The hotels rooms however were cheap and basic and not reflective of the price of the room ($157.00). The continental breakfast was one of the worst we have ever had at a hotel. The hotel is near Stratford and it would be an easy drive to the theatre but you could probably find nicer hotels in Stratford.

We spent the night here with a groupon coupon. The room was spacious and quiet. We ate in the dining room and loved our meal. You can take your own wine but their wine list is very reasonable and varied. The grounds are lovely and there is a nice patio for drinks and pub food if you don't want to eat in the formal dining room Service was attentive and friendly.

My husband and I just returned from the Stone Willow Inn. We went for a little overnight getaway with golfing at St Marys Golf and Country Club, sightseeing at Stratford to be followed by an enjoyable dinner at the Stone Willow and a comfy night stay. We read that reservations were suggested and tried 5 times that morning to do so, but ended up playing telephone tag. Who would have thought it would be that difficult. Upon check in, we took a peak at the "dining room" and realized that we definitely would not be eating there. The food may have been "good", but the restaurant itself lacked atmosphere and character. It was like a glorified Harvey's. FYI...we ended up at Renee's in Stratford which was absolutely amazing. A quaint little Italian restaurant - The baby spinach salad is to die for...as was the fettucine.
We upgraded from the standard 2 double beds to a King and were quoted an additional $30.00. The room was spacious with a large bathroom, complimentary "treats" and drinks and yes the linens were oh so beautiful.
Our view was of the back of the resort overlooking a trailer/shed/picnic table...ughhh...
In the morning we thought we might have some breakfast before heading home using our $20.00 food voucher that was included in our package, only to find out we were allowed to use the voucher on the previous day only. Had we realized this, we would have ordered drinks through room service - what a waste. When we booked our trip, we were also told that there would be a "continental breakfast" which we could not locate after finding out we were out of luck with breakfast. Then as we checked out, my husband was charge $50.00 for our upgrade even though he was quoted $30.00
The Inn was very quaint but unfortunately for us there were too many disappointments and will not be returning nor would we be recommending.

We booked the Romance Package at the Stone Willow for our wedding anniversary. The room was very spacious, with a large bathroom and whirlpool tub. The pillows and bedding were wonderful - I wish I had bought some to bring home. The wine chilled in the fridge was nice, although a small bottle. The truffles were truly exceptional. We ate at the onsite restaurant for $36 for the two of us - exceptional value for good food. The drinks were reasonably priced too. The restaurant was very busy, especially for a Wednesday night. We think the locals must frequent the restaurant as the Inn appeared to be very quiet the night we were there. Free high speed internet worked like a charm! Two reasons we didn't give the Stone Willow a five star rating - 1) the bathroom was too cold 2) the heater in the neighbouring room was quite noisy throughout the night. We would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed a the stone willow in so we could go to see the stratford fair. The room was very clean had a nice whirlpool bath and large washroom. The bed could have been better I could feel the bed springs in my back all night. For $250/ night I want a nicer bed. the food at the restaurant was very good but closed at 9 pm. So coming home from the theater we had to order pizza! Also only 2 rooms have balconys so if you smoke get one of these. I missed smoking my cuban cigar :( The beer and wine we had on room service was not over priced ( $3.50 for beer and $4.50 for glass of wine). For once a hotel gets it DON'T OVER CHARGE ON BOOZE!! I think i ordered in the few days we were there 6-8 beers and lots of wine. Over all a great place to stay just get Better KING Beds!!

Overall the place is fair; well located, reasonably priced, with acceptable amenities and free wireless internet. However, the walls (pretty much the doors) to rooms are paper thin, meaning you'll get up with however else does so first. Or, since some rooms have the possibility of being adjoined, you may enjoy whatever it is your "neighbours" are watching.

So while everything else chalks up to a big win, the lack of isolation makes this place an impossibility if you don't want to be bothered by, or perhaps bother others, with any kind of noise. Any kind.
