Established in 2009, our business began with the opening of the award winning Amity Court Motel here in Stratford. Owners David and Susan Kowalewski ventured into hospitality after a long an successful career in the dairy industry. Not long after opening their youngest son Jason and wife Kate took over the management of the commerical side of the business. Since opening we now operate 60% of the motel rooms in the Stratford district and have a number of exciting developments in the pipeline.
