Very clean space. Friendly hosts who are very knowledgeable about the theatre and shows in Stratford. Breakfast delicious and the homegrown raspberries in the mixed fresh fruit and the homemade granola a real delight. An unexpected bonus is the beautiful garden with its fountain system, This is the perfect location for a morning/evening meditation. One of us is an early riser, and she finds this a gem!

I had a lovely stay at A Garden Stroll. I got lots of exercise. It is a 20min walk from The Festival theater an 30 min from downtown. I had a lovely room with my own bathroom. The room was the perfect size for me. There garden was lovely with lots of places to sit. Breakfast was delicious. It started out with fresh fruit followed by an omlette and bacon. The outside steps are steep but there is a railing to hold onto. I did not need lunch. I would happily stay here again.

We are so happy that your Stratford adventure was a wonderful experience this year. We are so glad that people are taking advantage of the Stratford Direct bus, and getting to see live theatre once again. Breakfast conversation was certainly lively, and we appreciate the compliments of both breakfast and our wonderful spaces. We look forward to your return visit.

Wonderful hosts - Hal and Barb...both warm and welcoming and they try to make your stay as perfect as possible with lots of special extras. Breakfast was delicious - abundant food with home made specials and laid out beautifully. It was a yummy meal with great company of other guests. Hosts chatted with us too making you feel at home and part of their family. Lovely gardens and quiet relaxing setting.

We enjoyed the waffles with maple syrup, home made blueberry and raspberry syrups. I don’t usually eat quiche, but the mini quiche were very good. The room was spacious, comfortable and included a mini fridge.

We stayed here on the first night of a tour of Canada & USA. It was the perfect start. Our room was spacious, with two double beds, a lovely ensuite, fridge stocked with water and lots of literature about the area. There were several garden areas to enjoy and a hot tub. The breakfast the next morning was superb, largely home made and served at a very leisurely, relaxed pace. We were lucky enough to enjoy the company of 3 other guests and we ate and chatted with them, and Barbara & Corrine our hosts, for nearly 2 hours. Stratford is a beautiful place and if we return we'd love to stay at Garden Stroll again.

Hello Joan, It is exciting for us to have visitors from so far away. We can't always promise to have published authors as breakfast guests but we always enjoy his visits. I feel so lucky to live in a city with such good water, so I always have fresh tap water in your fridge as well as the bottled water. Barbara

We stayed at Hal and Barb's Festival Guest House and really enjoyed our stay. The room was quite large, with an ensuite bathroom (shower) and two twin beds. Very quiet. We were heavily booked with two plays and three tours, so did not spend too much time at the B&B. The breakfast was very good and filling. Nice to chat with the owners and other guests. We would definitely stay again if we were planning an overnight stay in Stratford. Good location to all the theatres too.

Sorry you did not have more time at breakfast as that is one of the perks of staying at a B and B. Your organizing skills would be useful as a tour director as you filled all the time open to you.

The B&B is very nice. It is very clean and provides very nice touches with respect to the room amenities. The hosts are pleasant people. Although we were there too early in the season, the backyard looks like it would be beautiful and relaxing when in full bloom. There are a few seating areas outside and at least one lovely water feature.

For me, the letdown was the breakfasts. There was ample food but there was no WOW factor to them. On both mornings my food was cold. We had French toast one day and omelettes the second day...both were cold. The second day we were also given toast with our omelette and not realizing the toast wasn’t buttered, the butter had no chance of melting into the toast when I did butter it. One of the days there was a bottle of mango juice on the table and it was the bottle as it would have come out of the cooler at the grocery store. There was jam on the table but there were little plastic spoons to serve it with. Having stayed at many B&B s over the years, the breakfast is what I look forward too and I was disappointed here both in the food and the presentation.

We are certainly glad that you enjoyed our rooms and main outdoor spaces. Almost everything in the rooms have come from suggestions from guests. This is how we improve, and we thank you for your feed back. I'd like to respond to your negative criticism, if i may. Yes our timing was a little off, we where waiting for the bacon to finish, and should have brought the main course to the table without it. Mentioning something at the time would have helped, and we would have redone your meals, had we known. We have also found that many of our heath conscious guests appreciate knowing the ingredients of the smoothies. You did not mention that breakfast was served on an elegant china setting, in fact it is our wedding china. We had fresh local maple syrup, homemade blueberry and raspberry sauces, locally produced jams. The plastic spoons are in place so we are not heartbroken when they go missing as we were when our heritage spoons disappeared. We are at the start of our season and will certainly be more hyper aware of our breakfast pacing and presentation. You were discounted the stay of your third person on the second night, and we are glad we could accommodate your last minute spiting of the bill.

Stayed at this B+B in June while attending the Stratford Festival.
Enjoyed the beautiful gardens , found them relaxing and calming with many water features There were many places to sit and just listen to the birds and the water falls.
Breakfast was delicious and the owners were friendly and very welcoming. They made some good suggestions for places to eat and were very informative about what was happening in the area while we were staying there.
Will definitely stay here again!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Garden Stroll B & B. We had a spacious and clean room with a bathroom inside of the room with a shower and a bunch of different sizes of towels. The garden was absolutely charming, the breakfast was tasty and conversations at the table kept everything in a good StratFest tradition.
We admired the hardworking team Hal & Barb who cleaned, cooked and took such a good care of their guests. We want to say thank you for your hospitality!

A beautiful setting. The outdoor gardens and the indoor design. The bedroom was so welcoming and comfortable. And the hosts served a very fine breakfast - and were always friendly and helpful. No one will be disappointed.
