We now go to the Old Rectory to stay at a great B&B and then manage to go to a few shows while we're there. It's that good. Kim and Kevin are delightful hosts and will do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. The food is A++++ and the rooms are nice. We look forward to next year.

Warm welcome, hosts knowledgeable about the best of everything in Stratford, wonderful breakfasts, spotless and comfortable rooms and public spaces, close to downtown shops, theater and restaurants. Better than home!

A stay at the Old Rectory is perfect! Comfortable, private en suite rooms, a lovely room for socializing, a terrific location for theater and shopping, spectacular breakfasts, and the most gracious and kind hosts you’ll ever meet. We’d never stay anywhere else in Stratford but the Old Rectory.

I don't know why I have never stayed here before. Easy to find, right beside the old Baptist church on Ontario St. just east of Waterloo St. near the heart of the city. You, if a mind to, can walk to all theatres and many of the great restaurants. Parking is one spot for each room.

Kevin & Kim are marvellously welcoming and I developed an instant rapport with them.

This Arts & Crafts home is full of nifty architectural items. A stately house indeed with a huge dining room furnished with individual tables, one for each of the rooms.
The lovely large sunroom is wonderful for reading the provided national newspapers while enjoying your pre breakfast beverage.

I stayed in room #4 at the back of the house that has a fabulous porch in the ancient Maple tree overlooking the Zen like garden. Take the time to walk around the backyard. A lovely coy pond is the focal point and there are several seating areas and a fire pit.

Your room is made up for the day whilst one is at breakfast (more on that later) and there is also a nightly bed turn down. The ample bathroom is clean with plenty of fresh towels and a soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser in the shower. Lots of hangers in the armoire along with an extra blanket.

Now, for those breakfasts. In a word; wow !
Kevin takes a lot of care planning his menus based on available local, fresh ingredients. Multi courses start with fresh fruit and his home made yogurt is creamy smooth and has a zing. Also on offer is a basket of croissants, bagels and any type of bread, from a nut to a rye. His Welsh cakes are superb and try a bit of his marmalade made with a dram of Bushmill's Whiskey, you can't taste the whiskey per se but it adds a dimension to the jam. Other home made jams & jellies are served as well as butter and a bowl of cream cheese.
Entrees can range one day from a perfectly poached egg on top of shoe string potatoes with a grilled tomato & pesto, smothered in home made hollandaise or perhaps a light & dainty brie soufflé or on another day an omelette with gruyere cheese and just right, blanched asparagus. His ginger & marsala cake is so moist and flavourful, you will be tempted to stow some for later.

I truly look forward to my next visit.
