This was our third stay in this beautiful home and we were again greeted with open arms. Service is way above and beyond, from restaurant recommendations to help with getting theatre tickets. Breakfast is amazing and delicious, made all the more appealing by sharing with other guests, inevitably interesting people. Will always plan to stay here.

There is no other business that offers close relationships with your guests or customers. Over the years we have made many close friends almost like extended family.

Dianne and Kent were most friendly and courteous hosts, and their guest house is well-kept and very attractive. Our room had everything we could possibly need; and the breakfasts were generous, delicious, and beautifully presented. We had a thoroughly enjoyable four-night stay.

Thank you for your review, a 4 night stay is a bonus and we know that Stratford offers so much, not only the theatre but the restaurants and shopping.

We've been visiting the Chisholms for over ten years--my husband and me for several years and now my daughter and me. Kent and Dianne always have some new little comfort for their guests and their rooms are perfection--refrigerators stocked with water, real milk and cream for coffee (not powdered) and, of course, lovely chocolates. The rooms are so well equipped...

The Chisholms sets the standard by which I measure all other B&B. The location is as close to perfect as you can get - walking distance to all of the theatres. The hosts are most charming and wonderfully interesting. We were so busy we didn't spend much time in our room but it is comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated in...

This was our first stay at the Chisholms but it won't be our last. The facility has a wonderful location and the quality, service, cleanliness and rooms were a wonderful treat for a great weekend in Stratford. Kent and Dianne made us feel welcomed and part of the inner Stratford community. Kent's knowledge of the plays and actors was phenomenal....

We've been staying with the Chisolm Bed and Breakfast for several years and just returned from another great weekend. The room was well appointed as always with a small fridge containing sodas, a coffee maker and your own television. The breakfast is really first class with 2 courses including a poached pear fruit serving and an amazing egg quiche. Breads...

This was my first time staying at the Chisolms and my first time staying at a B&B. Since I can't compare it to other B&B's I will compare it to 4 star Ontario Inns that I have stayed at in the past.

I just returned from 3-weeks at this incredible B&B and I truly hated leaving. This is the 13th or 14th year I've stayed with Kent and Dianne and they have spoiled me for any other B&B.
