Great location! Fabulous owners! We had to cancel due to illness, but they were so kind to let us stay another night. Very useful local knowledge re restaurants etc. Breakfast was real and so tasty, all home made (no cereal boxes in sight!) Sunny sitting room with the New Yorker to read and tasty biscotti!

My girl friend and I stayed at The Old Rectory in November, 2016. Our room was perfect - very well appointed and decorated, with 2 beds which was perfect for us. We were greeted by our host Kevin at the arrival time we had chosen. We had a quick tour of the place and it is beautiful. We took advantage...

Warm really is the best word to describe our stay, at the end of the theatre season, at The Old Rectory. The welcome we received from Kevin and Kim was warm and gracious. The decor, a delightfully nostalgic mix of wood and earth tones, was warm. And, on the first really cold night of the Fall, we were relieved to...

Beautiful BnB with a "home away from home" ambiance. While the physical surroundings are a feast for the eyes, the breakfast is "melt-in-your-mouth" feast for the palate. Kevin & Kim welcome you at the door, give you the "grand tour" and serve coffee and sweets in the parlor. Our only regret about staying at the Old Rectory is that we...

My husband and I booked the Old Rectory B&B in Stratford, ON. for our wedding rehearsal space and accommodations both before and after our wedding ceremony this October 2016, from friends who highly recommended the B&B. Upon stepping foot on the property, I can see why our friends and other travelers recommend the Old Rectory B&B. The property was breath-taking,...

This was a lovely B & B to stay at! Outstanding breakfast with the most amazing homemade croissants I've had, delicious hot meal and incredible hospitality. The room was warm and inviting with a lovely bear claw tub in the room. We loved that the location was in walking distance to downtown Stratford. We would come again!

Kevin & Kim, both trained chefs, and with 20 year's experience in their stately B & B, produce memorable breakfasts; on our last morning the main course was an asparagus crepe. And the accompanying offerings of blended jams - such as an Irish whiskey-tinged marmalade which melded intoxicatingly with a stout-enhanced version of one of Kevin's many breads - were...

Kim and Kevin are wonderful hosts -- welcoming, frendly -- and their home is beautiful -- historic, quaint, comfortable; as well, you will not find a better breakfast, so look no further and just stay at The Old Rectory.

On the main street, but quiet. Close to all the action, but a lovely quiet back yard. Service and food (breakfast) incomparable. Charming, comfortable, welcoming. We are not usually the B&B types, but we love coming back here every year.

We've made a trip to Stratford an annual event for more than 20 years. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Kim and Kevin run their B&B by making you feel like you're visiting dear friends. An exceptional property with wonderful food and hospitality.
