I just called to make reservations and found out that due to health problem "A Fools Paradise" is closed! I am sorry to hear this. We stayed here all but our first time going to Stratford plays. We will miss staying with you and always remember your great hospitality. John and Barb

When we first started planning our weekend in Stratford, it became clear that bed and breakfast's were the way to go. We reviewed the Trip Advisor members comments who had been there in the past and it seemed like a good place with a good location. We booked the Festival room which is the one room of three that has...

There are three priorities for us when we are looking for a place to stay: location, cost and cleanliness. This rates high stars for all. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. Breakfast was excellent, high praises for Charles in the kitchen. Enjoyed the conversations and the suggestions by the hosts. We walked to town and the...

I have been coming to A Fool's Paradise for years. Here are my reasons: Clean, comfortable beds in well-cared-for rooms. Nice clean bathrooms with plenty of hot water, fluffy towels, and comfortable robes. Sumptuous breakfasts of great variety of meats, eggs, pastries, homemade jams, juices, teas, coffees. A lovely little breakfast room with different table settings every morning. A well-worn...

We loved the location - an easy walk to the Avon theater. The "Festival Room" had a ensuite bathroom and we had the beds made up as two twins. Charles and Patricia were great hosts, and Zena (the cute puppy) was a doll.

This was my first B & B experience and I was not sure what to expect. I stayed in the Festival room with an ensuite bathroom. It was quite clean and lovely. The bed was comfortable (not great). A negative was that I am light sleeper and whenever someone walked on the hard wood floor I woke up. Do not...

This was a comfortable place to stay and fit within our tight budget. The best thing was, for an extra $25 fee, we were allowed to bring our small dog to stay with us. The owner's fed and walked him while we were out, and they also had a small dog to keep him company. This saved us a lot...

The owners were very friendly, the house is very clean and authentic, and they sure make the guest very comfortable in their home. The place is well located, but not in the very center of the town, but you can walk to the main places and attractions. The breakfast is outstanding, lots of food - more than you probably could...

Since this was my second stay at A Fool's Paradise, I had NO problem deciding where to lodge. A wonderful couple, intelligent, easy to chat with, loving pup named Zena...who kept me from missing my own dog, Mojo. When I said I enjoyed Mexican food, Charles made a GREAT Mexican breakfast on our last day. Allergies no problem as this...

This was our first experience staying at a B&B. We found the facility to be less than we had expected. The parking was barely adequate. The landscaping was pretty basic and the garden poorly kept. The front entrance was cluttered with recycling bins etc and was the smoking lounge for the owners. Inside, the residence was in need of better...
