“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I've been going to the theatre in Stratford for over 30 years, and have tried several different places to stay. The Stratford Hotel, in which I stayed for the 1st time this summer, was by far the most convenient and pleasant. The staff are outgoing & helpful, the A/C rooms are quirky but pleasantly so, and very clean, the price is reasonable, and the location couldn't be better. Parking is next to the hotel, fresh coffee & tea are available 24/7, & there was a min-fridge in the room..

Before judging the Stratford Hotel-walk inside. It reminded us of a small, quaint English hotel. The rooms have been renovated while keeping the historic overall ambience. We enjoyed meeting other couples staying there. We also enjoyed our breakfast at Joe's Diner which has an arrangement with the Stratford Hotel. Although the front desk closes at 9 p.m., you get an electronic key to open the front door. We felt very safe & there is free parking for hotel guests!

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on the second floor.

My husband and I spent a long weekend at The Stratford Hotel and enjoyed it thoroughly. The hotel is ideally located for access to shops and the downtown as well as to the theater venues. The staff was friendly and personable and the accommodations were quaint and charming. Parking was especially convenient, a shortcoming at other places we have frequented.

My husband and I decided to take an unexpected long weekend to Stratford. We were unsure about the best place to stay. We chose the Stratford Hotel. We were delighted! This hotel is quaint, very clean, and has a very friendly staff. Our room felt like it was set back in time yet with all the modern amenities. We were impressed with how clean and beautiful it was inside and out. We look forward to staying here again.

Me and my husband needed something special for our 20th anniversary and the Stratford Hotel delivered! We spent a couple extra bucks to get the suite and breakfast vouchers for Joe's Diner which was a good idea. The rooms, service, and the breakfast were all fabulous! The Stratford hotel small and unique, with accompanying friendly staff. When we returned to our room after going to watch a play, we found a Happy Anniversary note with a box of chocolates. It's classic elegance, not the modern stuff, which makes it special!

I was a little nervous upon arrival because I read your reviews AFTER I booked. Also, I usually book B&Bs for my group every year. However, my group was too big to fit in one B&B and too little to negotiate a discount at an inn. So I booked at this hotel, sight unseen. When I opened the door to the room, I was delighted to see soft yellow walls, a wide planked floor and a lovely bed & sitting room. It was far nicer than most B&B accomodations but with the same homey feel. Yes, the one bathroom door did not close properly, the floorboards creaked in places and one or two of the light fixtures didn't work. However, the place was very clean, cozy and the staff pleasant. There was a Kuerig coffee maker always on the ready in the lobby & the hotel was ideally situated for an easy walk to 3 of the 4 theatres in town. We stayed in May so our rates were very reasonable. Suites were only $10 more than a room so we had plenty of room to host wine & cheese get-togethers in our suites.
I think it's important to note that most "hotels" & "inns" in town are in historic buildings. Visitors shouldn't be expecting Marriott or Hilton type accomodations. This is a B&B town and people who visit should be prepared to feel as though they are guests in a home. This hotel made us feel welcome & valued. Delightful! We will absolutely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Stratford Hotel in February of this year and enjoyed out stay. Yes, it is quirky! There is no night staff, which is fine as there are two of us. The biggest problem we had was easily resolved - one evening, as we returned to the hotel from dinner, our passkey didn't work. However a call to the phone number on the card had someone at the door helping us out in minutes. (I imagine that if you didn't own a cell phone this could be a bigger problem!)

Our mattress was not hard as a few other posts have mentioned, the layout of our room was spacious, and the linens and towels were thick and absolutely crisply clean.

One morning we had troubles with the internet, but it was soon rectified as it was related to electrical work being done in the engineering business that shares the building.

The location is perfect for walkers - we walked often, to visit services and to purchase meals etc. Love being close to downtown!

We had moved to the Stratford Hotel from a local motel that promised Wi-Fi and delivered none, that refused to provide clean sheets, that didn't shovel snow from the walk to the door, and billed itself as having kitchenettes that didn't exist.

The Stratford was delightful in the quality of furnishings, spaciousness and amenities. We are returning in April and spending a few days there once again as we return to Ontario to take up permanent residence in Stratford! It will be a lovely place to stay between homes.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the building will be quieter as the road is fairly busy.
