Wonderful hosts, engaging but not in your face, with service as a calling. This made our stay a deeply enjoyable time and we will be coming back again. The care of the garden creates a special aura of peace and the excellent food is as good as anything you get in Stratford. Don't miss it!

A wonderful bed & breakfast in the heart of Stratford within easy walking distance of all of the main theatres and the shops along Ontario Street. Kim & Kevin are welcoming engaging hosts and excellent chefs as well! The gardens are lovely. What a relaxing stay. I'd highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Stratford. Our stay at the Old Rectory was wonderful. Food was great and the owners gave us many helpful hints for things to do and see in the area, and restrauants to try. We saw Fiddler on the Roof and LOVED it!

Every year we go to Stratford to see a few plays. Each year we have tended to end up at different B&Bs and inns and many have been good. The Old Rectory has been our best experience and one we will hope to repeat into the future. Its location is very central but despite being on a busy street, the...

This is our annual pick for accommodations when attending the wonderful Stratford Festival. Rooms in main house have different set ups. You will want to inquire. Gardens in back are lovely and a great spot to enjoy the company of friends. Breakfast and now dinners also available which are exquisite. Kevin is a good chef, menus vary daily. Highly recommend...

Within walking distance of the theatres, and located within a stones throw of downtown restaurants, the Old Rectory was an excellent choice for a weekend at the theatre. Although located on Ontario Street the house was very quiet, and it was great to be able to walk back from the play in the early evening. We would certainly stay there...
