Although the price was relatively low, we were taken aback when asked for full payment in cash almost as soon as we walked in. We soon realized that this was necessary because many guests would refuse to stay here, once they had a closer look around.
The guest rooms and common areas were very dusty and in desperate need of a facelift, to say the least. Many light bulbs were burnt out and the lock on the bathroom door was broken. Not only did this offer no privacy, but also the guests of four rooms were required to share this one bathroom. This is completely unacceptable in my book.
Breakfast was a huge disappointment. It consisted of do-it-yourself toast, cereal, some stale muffins, OJ, coffee, and a small bunch of bananas lying on the table. No hot cooked anything. Breakfast at Macdonald’s would have been a huge step up from this fare.
The owners were pleasant enough but rarely seen and they made no effort whatsoever to ensure that their guests were happy. I would recommend that you stay away from this B & B. For a few extra dollars, there are at least three other options just down the street that looked simply lovely, had private baths and offered hot breakfast. At least that is what I plan to do when I next visit to Stratford.
