    5/5 Excellent

    This is a perfect place to stay when visiting the Stratford area. It's just 10 minutes from the Stratford Festival Theater and even closer to downtown. We also enjoyed walking the trails on the motel grounds. Had it been a tiny bit warmer we would have tried the canoes!

    A good place for a Stratford stay

    Lovely place! Even better for several days while enjoying the area!

    Loved the cozy clean room, the grounds with lots to do outside and enjoy the great weather. The chairs on the front porch outside our room were a nice place to sit. Great continental breakfast.

    4/5 Good

    Beautiful property, like a resort. Bed was shaky and squeaky, seemed smaller than a queen size
