The dining room is lovingly restored and the breakfast offered a variety of home made options that were excellent and well thought out. The service was delightful. We stayed in one of the coach houses which has a comfy skylighted loft seating area. Location is...

Very convenient to anything and everything you want to do while in Stratford. We would stay here again - as many of the guests that were there when we were, were return visitors,...

The Old Rectory was the perfect home base for our Stratford adventures--delicious breakfasts to get us started each day, walking distance from the two major theatres, close to shops and restaurants. Special thanks go to Kim and Kevin for warmly welcoming and accommodating my teenage daughter on what could have been a very stuffy, grown-up trip. We hope to make...

This is the second year that we have stayed at the Old Rectory. Kim and Kevin do everything possible to make your stay a pleasant experience. We had tea in the sun room when we arrived and they called round to find us a dinner reservation. The room as before was spotless and quiet. It was a short walk to...

We only stayed in The Old Rectory for one night. We were passing through on our way to a meeting in Goderich coming from the East Coast. The Inn is a beautiful older house located in the heart of Stratford. The hosts were warm and welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding! I am sure that...

We stayed at the Old Rectory for 3 nights May 14 - 17, 2015 and loved every minute of it! The B&B is lovely, in a very convenient location that is midway between the theatres we visited, and walking distance to all the great shops & restaurants in downtown Stratford. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and well decorated. We...

We recently had the privilege of spending a night at The Old Rectory. It was a heart warming and welcoming experience from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The Conor's even sent us an email before our arrival letting us know about the events scheduled in town that would be occurring the day we arrived. These folks...
