Wonderful hotel in Stratford. Pleasantly surprised by this older style 3 story hotel. Rooms are beautifully decorated with a luxury touch in everything including a fresh rose on each bed! Beautiful spacious bathroom with granite and jetted tub. So pleased with this pick....highly recommend!

I was invited to Stratford to see several plays and my friends had been raving about their hotel. When we arrived I was impressed with how lovely it was. The hospitality from the front desk, to the maid service, to the pub & waitstaff was incredible. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We grabbed a bite in the...

When I view hotels on Trip Advisor the highest rating is 5 stars well I'm giving this place 6 stars. This was our first visit to Stratford. The hotel has been welcoming guests for over 140 years. It is top notch. Rooms are small but so unique in style. We booked the 2 room King Suite with fireplace. They offered...

The Parlour Inn is a nice boutique hotel in downtown Stratford. We decided to stay as part of Travelzoo promotion and because we were in town to watch a play at the festival. Staff at the hotel were very helpful and the room was quite nice. We also had a very nice dinner at the restaurant. We would recommend both...

We stayed for our anniversary weekend and we were very pleased with our experience. The room was quaint and tidy. All the amenities we needed were available. We had dinner at the restaurant and the food was excellent, plentiful, and pretty. Our waitress was very pleasant and even delivered our dessert and leftovers up to our room later. The location...

We had the most wonderful stay at this charming inn. The staff were most welcoming and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we were very comfortable and called after we'd been in our room awhile to make sure we had everything we needed. Our room was beautifully appointed, spacious,luxurious and cozy. There were extra touches like...

The service continues to be sublime for such a good value hotel. From chocolate and personalized letters for returning guests, to an easy shuttle to the shows in town, to EV charging for your car, to a very helpful front desk. But the real deal is the quality of the rooms, large, well appointed and with a good amount of...

Our room was cozy and luxurious. Amazing bed, pillows and bedding. Perfect two night springtime getaway. Amenities were top quality and the only thing that could have made morning coffee a little better would be china mugs. We enjoyed breakfast and one dinner in the beautiful dining room. Terrific food and friendly servers. Would recommend this to our friends and...

We travelled to Stratford on Saturday April 15th for a one night stay at the Parlour Inn as part of a deal that we purchased on TravelZoo. Parking is adjacent to the hotel, lots of spaces, and no charge (which is an anomaly in today's society). Check in was very quick and efficient. Front desk attendant was helpful with suggestions...
