Dufton House is a charming older building a few blocks north of the river and downtown. Our suite, which included bedroom, bathroom, and small kitchenette, was elegantly appointed and well maintained. It was a charming place to stay for a long weekend, and Johanne and Tim were gracious hosts. The daily gourmet breakfast was served at a separate, equally delightful property about a ten-minute walk away. My only suggestion would be that coffee (in addition to tea bags) be provided for the Keurig coffee maker in the kitchenette.

Fantastic Place to Stay!
This was a fantastic place to stay. It was close to town, and quiet and comfortable. We had a king bed in one room and a queen in the other and a sunroom with a garden was wonderful. Oh, and the BEST shower ever! Nice full stream of water in what looked like a fairly newly rennovated glassed in shower.....fantastic....loved it......I would definitely stay there again!

Poor 2.0
not so good
i had stayed at the sister property (Stone Maiden Inn) and enjoyed it, but was disappointed this time. Although they promise breakfast, it is not on the premises. Walk 900 metres (11 minutes) to get there. As i was with a friend who couldn't walk, they brought it to us: cold, unappetizing, no choices. Public rooms at the other property are fine; at this one there is a cramped porch with stained carpet and tiny frig. Public areas are outside, and so not good at night or in rainy/cold weather. Moreover, they promise daily housekeeping and my bed was not made the second day. Old towels left in the bathroom. The sliding door came off the bathroom the first time i used it (and stayed off for the day). The wifi was not reliable. When I provided feedback, they were angry, not helpful. It's expensive for what it is (no elevator, walk up steep stairs and around two corners, parking on the street, a bedspread not a duvet). I'll look for somewhere better next time.

Charming Bed and breakfast near Stratford theatres
A beautiful historic brick house surrounded by gardens in a residential neighbourhood within easy walking distance of the Stratford theatres and restaurants. The room was, clean clean, private and quiet. Free street parking. Free Wifi. Care was taken to appoint the room with interesting personal artifacts and art work. There is a mature garden, slightly over run, appointed with chairs and tables. Note there are stairs. I would definitely go there again.
