Suite B Like your great aunts apartment,, nicely furnished, eclectic decor. Not about the pamper, but definitely comfortable. Walk or drive to sister b and b, stone maiden for a great breakfast. Of the two b and b's owned by the same couple, I prefer the less pretentious Dufton

Dufton House is lovely and very comfortable place. Our suite (Suite A) was tastefully furnished with an excellent bed, armchairs, well-equipped kitchenette, bath well stocked with toiletries, plenty of hot water, even a jacuzzi tub. It is easy walking distance from the festival and Stratford's numerous great restaurants. The hosts are gracious and accommodating, and provide a superb breakfast at... More

The Dufton was a lovely find for us, tucked on a quiet, tree-lined side-street just a few minutes from downtown, it was private, quiet and spacious. We stayed in the Carriage House, which had its own private entrance and kitchenette, and the beautiful high ceilings and open wooden beams were a pleasure to come back to, while the short walk...

No breakfast is offered at this facility. The price is simply for accommodations, Although it advertises as one, it is not! We were expecting more, and were extremely disappointed. It is actually like a motel/hotel with less amenities. It is also not suitable for people with mobility issues.

We've stayed in B suite before, but this time stayed in the renovated A suite and it was wonderful--comfortable bed & all we needed for breakfast in kitchen (coffee, tea, cream, milk, juice) and pastries delivered to the door each morning.

Thanks to Tim and Johanne for a great B and B stay in Stratford. For our father/daughter annual trip we enjoyed the town of Stratford, the theatre (including the behind the scenes tour) and our time at Dufton house. The 2 bedroom suite suited us very well and very comfortable. Very close to down town to walk to restaurants and... More
