From the warm welcome to the delicious breakfast to the location, everything about the Old Rectory is perfect! Kim and Keven were so hospitable, giving us suggestions for dining (excellent), things to do (apart from the theatre) and providing a place to leave our car while we saw a matinee at the theatre even though we had checked out!

The b&b is one the best we have every stayed. It was a short walk to downtown as well as all the theaters. It is lovely and warm and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding the next morning.

My stay at The Rectory is always a highlight of the year.They are wonderful hosts as well as their beautiful town.I hate to say too many good things because it's a hidden jewel and I'm selfish to want to keep it that way.

Thank you for the kind words. As we approach our 20th year, we can't agree with you more-we like flying under the radar a little as it's keeps life quite intimate and less frenetic.

Kim and Kevin could not be better hosts. They care about their guests comfort and do everything to make their guests feel comfortable and at home. After more than 15 years of staying at the Old Rectory, we have no desire to stay any other place. It is a perfect setting.

This was a wonderful one stay for a special occasion. I am not a big fan of a true bed and breakfast; I am more inclined to stay at a hotel to have my private separate space, including my private bathroom. Although this is a bed and breakfast, it gave me all the amenities I wanted including a private bath...

We have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts in Stratford, but none better than the Old Rectory. We stayed in the garden apartments and loved the space and arrangement, warm and inviting. The breakfasts were unsurpassed. Each day was different and excellent. We booked for next year before we left for home.

The Rectory is absolutely gorgeous! I stayed over the past weekend with my mother. We were there with my theatre group and we were planning to see three shows and take some workshops around the Stratford area, as well as shop around.
