Avonview Manor is lovely older house in a quiet neighbourhood, but within a 15 minute walk from the the main part of Stratford - mostly along the scenic Avon River. We were there during a warm spell and particularly enjoyed the sun porch attached to our second floor room. Rhonda and Tony were gracious hosts, providing us with a helpful list of the variety of restaurants in the city and giving us good advice on the walking trails in close proximity to the Manor. We were treated each morning to tasty and innovative breakfasts lovingly prepared and served by Rhonda. Having a lovely house to return to each evening helped make our time in Stratford very enjoyable.

Our trip to Stratford was to see Richard III, in the new beautiful Tom Patterson Theater and Hamlet, Chicago and The Miser in the Festival Theater. The return to Stratford was enhanced by our stay at Avonview Manor - gracious hosts, spacious rooms, lots of history, superb breakfasts and quiet neighborhood! We look forward to a return visit to Avonview

This trip to Stratford was to celebrate our anniversary and we were lucky to find Avonview Manor…a place that offered first-rate comfort and friendliness for our overnight stay. The hosts Rhonda and Tony were very welcoming and helpful right from the start. They provided a home away from home with a beautiful décor that varied from room to room. Our room, decorated in a nautical theme, had everything we needed and then some! Breakfast was delicious and Rhonda entertained us with anecdotes from her personal experiences and made us feel very special by adding delightful touches to our meal. The Manor was within easy and picturesque walking distance of downtown Stratford and the various theatres. We have booked our next year’s anniversary visit for two nights...it was that special. Thank you Rhonda and Tony. Chris and Brenda. Aug 19, 2022

This was our first stay at a B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was interesting to hear and see some of the treasures from their travels during the home tour. The heritage home is both beautiful and comfortable. The surprise for both my husband and I were the restaurant quality breakfasts... very creative, well presented, and delicious! We were celebrating a birthday and a recent anniversary and the little ‘extras’ were very much appreciated... not to mention Ronda Lee’s beautiful voice!😊 Thank you again for everything. Joe and Lana

Dear Joe and Lana; Thanks so very much for your wonderful words about our home and service - including the vocal demonstration. "Someone" by Major Hoople's Boarding House - if you look them up; you'll hear our neighbour playing keys. We look forward to hosting you again sometime in future - only for a longer period of time.

Wow! That is all I can say! My dad and I went to Stratford to see one of his favourite plays at Stratford, Richard the III. The moment you walked into the door you knew you were in a special place, beautiful wood floors and warm ambience. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating! Comfy beds and wonderful decor. Rhonda is a wonderful cook who definitely knows how to make a delicious breakfast with a lot of thought and creativity! This was probably one of my best experiences at a bed and breakfast in Stratford!

The Avonview Manor is a wonderful place to stay with an interesting 100 year old history and good access to downtown Stratford and the venues of the Stratford Festival. Our hosts were very welcoming, sociable and attentive to our needs. All aspects of the house were charming. And finally, our breakfasts were yummy and gave us an excellent start to our days. I highly recommend the Avonview Manor!
