A warm welcome!       A great night's sleep!      A scrumptious silver service breakfast!   

The Mornington Rose is an elegant, beautifully restored Victorian home built in 1905. Classic taste and inviting furnishings blend with a, bright, airy, atmosphere to create a fresh, but still traditional look.  Partner this with a great sleep, an amazing breakfast, and lots of Murray's famous chocolate chip cookies, and you're sure to enjoy your stay!!!                            

Centrally located, the Mornington Rose only a short walk away from all attractions: 7 minutes to the Patterson Theatre, 10 minutes to Stratford's downtown shopping area, 14 minutes to the Avon and Studio Theatres, and 20-25 minutes to the Festival Theatre, (depending on how long you spend feeding the swans ; )  




Rooms & Amenities

The Mornington Rose features four well-appointed bedrooms: 3 with queen beds and 1 with extra-long twin beds (2), each with its own private ensuite bathroom. The Ebony Room is a self-catering unit, and the room rate reflects this.  

Original artworks adorn the walls throughout the house and many are available for purchase.  Although our cats, Spike, Calli, Shadow and Gus live in a separate part of the  house from guest areas, they do not allow other pets. The Mornington Rose welcomes guests 18 years of age and over.   


For your comfort, all bedrooms feature fine imported bedding, hypo-allergenic pillows (extra pillows too) and crisp Egyptian cotton linen,  a bar fridge, a clock-radio, ice bucket, water and wine glasses and a corkscrew, Werthers candies and Swiss chocolates. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and a sitting area with comfortable chairs for relaxing, reading or sharing a glass of wine. All rooms have a television except the Ivory Rose Room.

A scrumptious gourmet silver service breakfast is served in the dining room at 9am.   Be prepared to stay awhile to give you time to enjoy all three courses!  Begin with fresh coffee, juice, and home-made baking and preserves.
