Spent a weekend here in the off season and rooms were beautiful. Staff was nice and friendly with a quick check in. The restaurant was relaxing and beautiful also. The history made it. Close to anywhere you want to go.

We visited on the recommendation of friends who were impressed with this dining experience, if you are going during the theatre session, you will need reservations, our visit in "off season" did not, in fact there were only a handful of occupied tables. The old building has been beautifully restored and the dining room woodwork is a work of art,...

Our getaway to beautiful Stratford was an excellent choice. We booked using a Travel Zoo offer that included a deluxe room, a bottle of red or white wine, $25 credit for the The Parlour Steakhouse and samples at The Chocolate Barr across the street. When finalizing the booking I mentioned that we would be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The...

Gorgeous little suite with a pullout couch in our separate living room. There was a joint fireplace between both rooms and a tv mounted in each room. King bed was very comfy with super soft linen. The massive jacuzzi tub that you could access from the bedroom was lovely and the rose left on our pillow after dinner was a...

Stayed one night at this hotel. Very historic and clean hotel. Room was quiet, extremely clean and nicely furnished. Only complaint was that heating control was not working that great but otherwise enjoyed my stay. Front desk staff: Shannon and Carlene were very professional and kind. Another staff person named Shirley was also very professional. I would stay again.

Spent two nights here while attending the theaters. This hotel is close to the downtown, where a lot of the shops and restaurants are located. Service is good. The room was a bit small, but not a problem. Would come back again for the 2017 theater season.
