“A hotel of real character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2006

If you are looking for a spacious, clean, well-appointed room in the centre of town, look no further. We had a few minor quibbles: long-distance calls cannot be made direct from your room; drawer-space is inadequate for those with two weeks' baggage, and room supplies (tea-bags, cream, shampoo etc) were not replenished automatically - you have to ask. But the welcome is friendly, the breakfasts generous and the room had many features (CD's, a library of books, good coffee-maker, iron plus board) typical of many places at twice the price. We really enjoyed our stay there, and would go back.

  • Liked — The warm wecome
  • Disliked — Lack of drawer space
  • Stayed September 2006, travelled as a couple

Wonderful people and wonderful rooms and wonderful location. Caveat- the city view rooms are along an in-town 2 lane highway with many trucks and motorcycles; it is quite a climb with bags from parking lot to rooms - so park in front first if you can. However, that being said, it's most comfortable and charming; close to all the Theaters and fine dining (don't miss the Church restaurant if you can afford it). Staff are friendly and helpful indeed.

We loved this unique inn! It was wonderful to stay at a place with so much character and not another cookie-cutter hotel. The room was large and beautiful, I don't think the website pictures do it justice. The bistro underneath the rooms was funky and fun (Although I didn't think the service there was great).

The inn keeper was so much help and was full of great suggestions. She even made us dinner reservations for a half hour after we arrived in Stratford.

One thing I found interesting about this inn is that there was NOBODY working at the inn after around 9:00 PM. We were going to request some glasses and a bottle opener in the evening but could not find a single staff person. We weren't even sure where to call if there had been something really wrong. But this isn't a complaint, just an observation. I like it that they are trusting, it's a little different than the attitude I find in the US.

Also, if you plan on attending plays (which, of course you are) and are between 19 and 29 you can get a "play-on" card. This allows you to see plays for $20 Canadian, which is a HUGE discount. You are somewhat limited on what plays you can see and you can't purchase them more than two weeks in advance. My husband and I were able to see both plays we wanted. We have one more year we can take advantage of this and we plan to!

We loved Stratford, we felt so rejuvenated when we left. We loved this inn and it's location. We would definitely want to stay here if we returned.

We won't stay anywhere else in Stratford! The beds are the most comfortable in town, the rooms are beautifully designed with great amenities. The Tango Coffee Bistro downstairs has the BEST croissants and other pastries that you can pick from for your included breakfast. Can't beat the location either, right in the heart of town.

We have been a few times to the Mercer Hall. Awesome touches like local artist works, a Canadian library and CD library, unique modern boutique rooms that make you feel at home.
