My boyfriend and I stayed here at the end of July and it was a fantastic experience! There was a mix up with our reservation (not the hotel's fault, the fault of the third party booking site we used). The hotel was extremely accommodating and gave us their first available room. Staff was friendly, hotel was adorable and everything in...

My daughter and I met today for a birthday lunch. We wanted to sit outside and decided on Fosters. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, she made excellent suggestions. We found the food to be very tasty and the menu quite extensive. The food came hot and nicely plated. We would definitely go back.

We have stayed at this lovely little hotel at least for times and it's nicer every time. Just two doors from the Avon theater and a nice walk from the Tom Patterson and the Festival Theater, it's the perfect place to stay when attending the Stratford Festival. Stratford offers 24 hour free parking about two blocks from this hotel. The...

A lovely place with a relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are amazing, unique in their old-world charm. If you like something other than the cookie cutter hotel this is the place. Restaurant was wonderful, food fresh and cooked perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the patio. Staff, like best friends. I would certainly go back and definitely recommend!

Went to Fosters tonight for dinner and was disappointed Waiter seemed disinterested, I ordered the steak and it wasn't cooked near what I asked for, few vegetables thrown on the plate. My wife ordered the special which she enjoyed. Not sure I will be back anytime soon

comfortable and clean rooms - air conditioning was a bit noisy when it kicked in. Was not able to have dinner as restaurant was full. Would have been good to know that reservations for dinner should be made when booking room. However, we enjoyed an excellent breakfast! Staff very friendly and helpful. Good value overall.

Craig Foster and his staff got a huge standing ovation from us. We had tickets for a 2 pm matinee and were stuck on Route 7 and arrived with 45 minutes to spare. We were able to check in and get a quick bite, and luckily the Avon Theater was across the street. We had an excellent dinner and breakfast....

After making a reservation at another nearby hotel-- which was so gross I couldn't bear to stay more than the first night-- we happened upon Foster's Inn and they not only had a room, but it was a delight. Appealing, unique decor, large and comfortable bath, clean and quiet. You enter via the hostess stand at the entry-level restaurant-- which...
