The address is the name of the B&B so this one is very easy to find. Not that anything is difficult to find in Stratford, Ontario. It is a small town of about 35,000 and most of the B&Bs are within walking distance of the downtown core. One Sixteen Mornington is no exception. A two-minute walk down Mornington to Waterloo Street and across the bridge and you are at the Avon River and on the edge of downtown. I spent three nights at this B&B and had a lovely stay. The red brick house is full of antiques and retains the character of a century old home. The front porch has white wicker furniture and is a lovely spot to watch passersby while enjoying the cool shade. Guests have full use of the living/dining room on the ground floor including a computer where you can check the daily weather report and your e-mail. Ron and Koleen are very welcoming hosts and provide a wonderful cooked breakfast every morning. Many of the paintings on the walls were painted by Koleen or her mother.

I stayed in the Queen’s room, the front bedroom which overlooks Mornington Street. Both rooms are en-suite and very comfortable. I was visiting my sister and her husband who had recently moved to Stratford and my sister was very welcome to visit with me at the B&B rather than us being out all the time. In addition to the tea and coffee making facilities in my room, I had access to bottled water in a fridge on the landing. This was a welcome addition given the warm weather and served as a good place to store handmade chocolates I had bought downtown.

Breakfast is served between 8:30 and 10:00. The first morning it consisted of juice, fruit (pineapple, banana, blueberries, strawberries) and yogurt, fresh scones, sausages, asparagus and French toast with coffee or tea. Unlike some French toasts, Ron’s was not too sweet, it was just right. The next morning breakfast was fruit and yogurt, mini muffins, green beans, bacon and raspberry pancakes. The third morning I had to leave by 8:00 to catch a train so I had some fruit and yogurt and mini muffins and ate what I could of the cheese and ham omelet, pea meal bacon and hash browns which Koleen then packaged up for me to take with me. The breakfasts definitely set me up for a day of sightseeing and I did not need anything substantial to eat until evening. Koleen usually sat with us at the end of our meal to chat about the plays on offer at the four theatres in town and to get to know all her guests.

I paid $110.00 per night because I was there in June. From July-September the prices go up to $140.00 per night. I will definitely stay here again on future visits to Stratford.
