Pickering, Canada

My Dad and I travelled from the Toronto area to enjoy lunch here prior to seeing a show! Well worth the drive. We both enjoyed salads as we knew we'd need room for the famous dessert. My Beet salad was exceptional and Dad's Caesar salad wonderful as well. Our server was fantastic, attentive but not hovering. The famed Pavlova was...

Dear edotdolly, Thank you for your dining review of the Parlour Inn. I may be biased, but I do feel our Pavlova is the BEST in the area, and it is well worth the drive. We hope to have you join us again during your next trip to Stratford. Kindest regards, Michael Ewart General Manager

We booked the deluxe room, which was so spacious. It had a mini fridge, a Jacuzzi tub and king bed. We received a bottle of wine with our package. We were there for 2 nights and had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. The service was wonderful and so was the food. Centrally located to everything. We...

I have stayed at the hotel for the last three years (and three times this year). This place really does set a high standard. The property is very well maintained. The rooms are extremely spotless and well appointed, and the beds are super comfortable. The shuttle to the theatres is a big plus. The staff is very pleasant to deal...

This is where you want to stay. A girlfriend and I did the Bed and Breakfast package and I highly recommend it. The hotel itself is charming and the rooms are spacious and neat with nice touches in them. I particulary liked the turn-down at night with the rose on the pillow. The breakfast in the restaurant was outstanding and...

I love older properties, and this one holds its charm without giving up modern conveiences. Great whirlpool tub in our double queen room, which was spacious enough to be very comfortable over two nights. Highly recommend the breakast package - that is the best meal they serve in their resaurant. The shuttle service to the theaters was a nice plus...

This was a last minute Tuesday booking. It was smooth and reception was pleasant and helpful. I called back the next day to see if I could get into the room early as we were seeing an afternoon show and wanted to get changed. It was no problem. The room was great. They shuttled us to the play and on...

We stayed here one night when visiting to see a show. The inn is very beautiful, with plenty of old time charm, warm wood accents and comfortable rooms. It is within walking distance of the downtown and the theatres, even so, they offered us a ride if we wanted one. We had an excellent breakfast the next morning. All of...

Excellent place for a hearty meal. All entrées are very generously sized. Appetizers and desserts are plenty enough to share. Not a good option if you're looking for something lite, but the food is excellent and you won't leave hungry!

I was invited to Stratford to see several plays and my friends had been raving about their hotel. When we arrived I was impressed with how lovely it was.
