When we walked into the Arbour Garden Bed & Breakfast, there was no one in the lobby and no sign on how to get anyone’s attention. But there was the wonderful aroma of a coffee cake cooling in the kitchen. Following its smell, we found out hostess, Joan.

We soon learned that Joan was a lot like that coffee cake, warm and wonderful.

While the bedroom was small, it was decorated nicely and you felt welcomed. The bathroom was surprisingly big when compared to the bedroom. It was clean and nicely appointed.

The Arbour Garden is a small bed & breakfast, the common areas are lacking, which is not a problem if you plan to spend your time exploring Stratford and attending plays. It is conveniently located near the Avon River and is an easy walk to the Tom Patterson Theater and downtown.

Breakfast is served at a common dining room table, which we enjoyed. It was fun talking to our fellow guests and listening to their adventures.

While we are willing to recommend this B&B, we do have one caution. It is up for sale and Joan is the person who makes this B&B such a nice place to stay.

It was our first time in Stratford and Joan have helped more than we asked for. It was a really last minute booking. We bought the tickets for the show and had nowhere to stay and didn't want to settle for Kitchener. I emailed Joan and she responded right away.
The room was cozy and the breakfast was delicious. Even though it was only 1 night but we had a great time. Would recommend this gem to anyone.

Just left this amazing B&B. Cannot wait to return. Stayed in the top level, Gallery. Loved, loved, loved it! We utilized the beautiful private balcony porch for morning coffee and evening drinks. Joan and her husband were the best! Great breakfast! They went out of their way to accommodate us, above and beyond. Perfect location.

Room tip: Loved the Gallery Suite

I stayed at Arbour Garden Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights at the end of August. I picked this place based on the reviews on trip advisor. I was so glad that I decided to stay here. Joan was a very lovely hostess. She is very friendly and knows a lot about Stratford. It was like staying with friends. Joan recommended a play for me to go and see and I really enjoyed it. She also knows a lot about the plays in Stratford and good places to go and have dinner. There are 4 rooms. I stayed in The morning glory room which is the smallest room. It was very clean and had a private bathroom across the hall. There are robes provided for the trip across the hall to the bathroom. There is also free Wifi which worked great. The breakfasts were huge and were delicious and I didn't need to eat lunch. Joan picked me up at the bus stop and dropped me off which I really appreciated. I highly recommend this place. It is one of the top bed and breakfasts in Stratford. I would stay here again. Thank-you so much Joan for an enjoyable stay.

Room tip: All rooms require stairs to get to. They are all great.
