“A Gem!”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

Those looking for a relaxing and enjoyable B&B in Stratford need look no further than Acrylic Dreams. Jack & Karen are welcoming and gracious hosts, who do their best to make your visit a memorable one. Both very knowledgeable of Stratford and all things theatrical, they are tremendously helpful. The rooms were tidy and nicely appointed, and the B&B in general felt cozy and much "like home." It is also within convenient walking distance of the theatres, Stratford's main shopping areas, the Avon River, etc. - our car stayed parked for the duration of our visit. We're looking forward to our visit next season!

Tranquil garden, cozy room, massage and reflexology, vegetarian breakfast, walk to town and theatres...we were in heaven. And we'll be back!

We are vegetarians and very happy to find a B&B that caters to us!

W found our room cozy and peaceful, on the first floor, easy come and go. Of the four ensuites it was the smallest, but we'd stay there again.

We enjoyed relaxing and reading in the lovely garden. And then walking the short distance into town for lunch, and later the theatre.

A special treat was enjoying a session of chair massage and foot reflexology with our hostess Karen. Very refreshing!

We also enjoyed viewing our host Jack's mystical acrylic painting displayed throughout.

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Stratford at the Acrylic Dreams B+B. Jack and Karen were wonderful hosts - very knowledgeable, caring and welcoming. We had a wonderful, yummy! breakfast and our room was so pretty and romantic. The chocolate hearts on the pillow were a nice touch too. The house has a cozy feel that reminded us of a country cottage. So cute! I would highly recommend this B+B... we will definitely be booking with them next season!

We have stayed here many times and find the hosts most welcoming and generous. It feels like "home" and their breakfasts are delicious. Reserve a room well in advance of your potential stay because they are in demand.

We had a wonderful stay over the weekend - our hosts Jack and Karen could not have been more hospitable, warm and just genuinely friendly. Our room was very nice, very clean and comfortable, and the accomodations were, overall, great. Breakfast both days was very good - yogurt, fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs - lots of very good coffee! We will definitely stay again at "A B&B on Bay - Acrylic Dreams" - everything was great!

We were first attracted to this B&B because of the advertised gourmet healthy breakfasts. We were not disappointed. Then we discovered our hosts were interested in all the festival activities, so we found them very congenial. The rooms are attractive and comfortable and the general atmosphere of the place is very pleasant.
With our priorities, Acrylic Dreams is the perfect B.& B. so it is our first choice whenever we come to Stratford for the festival.

Last week we had an opportunity to head to Stratford and once again chose to stay in Acrylic Dreams, our favourite return haunt. Run by Jack and Karen (reflexologiy on site), this charming B and B never fails to delight. A warm welcome, artfistic decor and gourmet breakfasts have us returning year after year. Our hosts are well informed about the many local restaurants and other attractions with lots of available reference material for browsing. Close to downtown Stratford, it's possible to walk, particularly to the Avon and Studio Theatres.
