This was my second stay with Geoff and Gay. They are lovely people. They are very friendly and tell interesting stories. They can tell you all you need to know about Stratford. They see all the plays so I could discuss all the plays with them. You must be able to climb stairs to stay here. All 4 bedrooms are on the second floor. There are 2 shared baths . I didn’t have to wait long. The room I had was very comfortable. It had a double bed, very spacious and bright. The only problem I had was that the wifi didn’t work great. Breakfast was delicious and was home made scrambled eggs on toast. There was also ham fruit and vegetables. You can also have as much juice and coffee and tea as you want. It is in a great location 5-10 minute walk to the Avon and Studio theatres. Approximately 15-20 minutes walk to the Festival Theatre. This B & B is also very handy for the Stratford Festival bus which drops off at the Avon Theatre. I would stay here again.…
Very convenient to the theatres and dining places. The owners are very knowledgeable about the literary world. Lots of books and artefacts to browse in the house as well. We had a spacious family room in the front of the house, quiet and peaceful surroundings. Delicious french toast and lots of fruit.
Staying at Brunswick House was an adventure in itself. Run by Gay (a poet) and Geoff (a writer), it was welcoming, comfortable, and entertaining. The beds were very comfortable and there were two shared baths on the floor so you rarely had to wait. The rooms are air-conditioned and beautifully decorated. Gay served a gorgeous fresh fruit and french toast breakfast with plenty of coffee and hot tea. The B&B is close to the Avon and Studio Theatres as well as the farmer's market and shopping. Our hostesses are well-versed in Canadian literature and theatre and are fascinating to talk with. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Stratford.
If you're looking for value and authenticity, this is the place. Geoff and Gay have been running their B&B in Stratford forever. As writers and poets they not only know most of the Canlit world, but know every nook and cranny vis a vis the festival. Every director, actor, all the insider info and not just the here and now but will regale you with stories about 'when Maggie Smith played Virginia (Wolfe that is) in 1973, that was fabulous!' And some such tales. The breakfast is scrumptious and the books abound for more feasting. Truly delightful.
I've been staying at Brunswick House since the late '80s. It's an integral part of my annual pilgrimage to Stratford. Excellent breakfasts (bonus: always fascinating folks to talk to), very comfortable rooms, with air conditioning. The bathrooms are shared, but I've rarely had to wait. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I think of it as the "G&G" because Geoff and Gay have become friends.
