We have been going back to the Old Rectory year after year & we always have a wonderful experience. Kim & Kevin are very gracious hosts. The hot breakfasts and accompaniments are delicious. Our room was lovely and had a separate door to the balcony overlooking the garden. Kevin & Kim are also very active in the Stratford community &...

Every September we have a family vacation. Six people descend on Stratford for a weekend of eating drinking and getting a Stratford fix. Part of the tradition is staying at the Old Rectory and seeing Kevin and Kim and the ever growing Conner. Excellent service is an understatement. Food that is always unique and delicious. Rooms and beds that are...

The Old Rectory is a stellar, exemplary bed and breakfast. We will definitely return on our next trip to Stratford. Kim and Kevin are welcoming, charming hosts who saw to our every need, and the rectory and grounds are beautiful and inviting. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the common areas are uniquely decorated and equally comfortable. The homemade,...

We always love to return to Stratford to see Kevin, Kim and Conor. It is like a homecoming, returning to familiar friends and a most friendly, cozy environment. We have been returning to the same home for more than 10 years. That should express how special the Old Rectory is.

Last year we reviewed very positively this great B&B and our recent visit made a similar impression on us. However this time we did something different. Kevin, our host, is also a first rate chef and offers his guests the opportunity to have dinner in-house on several nights a week - a 3 course meal for $50 a person -...

This B&B certainly has to be the most professionally family run accommodation of its type that I've ever had the pleasure to stay in. With the husband and wife team being chefs, the food is second to none. The breakfast is so fresh even the breads and jams are made on site. If you get a chance, book the evening...
