Recent guest reviews

Love this Inn! We’ve stayed 3 times. All the rooms are unique but they’re clean, comfortable and inviting. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was tasty, especially the light and flakey chocolate croissants.

Simply a superb meal in every respect. Ed and his team provided outstanding service Would recommend the beef tenderloin every time. The Inn is one of the best in all of SW Ontario. Always one my favorite restuarants at this time of year.

My daughters booked a Pajama Party for my 60th birthday and included my sister, all being a surprise to me and it was awesome. The weather outside was awful, cold and rainy, but once inside the inn, everything was amazing. The room was wonderful, the in-room snacks, including a bottle of wine, and pedicures all around - fantastic. And then the buffet breakfast - scrumptious. The staff were amazing and treated us well. I felt very blessed.

Five of us had a very enjoyable lunch yesterday,,,.it looked as if all the tables were full.. The service was amazing and the food hot and delicious. I’m anxious to return. I saw a delicious and beautiful plate of fish and chips. And another of a hamburger and yummy looking salad... I hope to try both of those soon..a friend had the liver and said it was pretty spectacular ,,, two of us had the French Onion soup and found it lacking... we both would have preferred the traditional way of serving it..lnstead it was a very hard chunk of bread dipped in cheese and baked really hard. The idea was the chunk would melt but ours didn’t do could hardly cut through it and by the time you finished the soup had spilled..I couldn’t get the rate boxes to work. The service was excellent.. the value is good about average . The location is central... all in all, a lovely place to lunch!

We totally enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Idlewyld Inn. The dinner on Saturday evening was lovely and breakfast in the morning was the perfect way to send us on our way. The service was excellent and the special little touch of a note and a small box of chocolates was the icing on the cake. We have book our room for next year and we are already looking forward to another wonderful celebration!

a charming old mansion,with a long and colourful history. It is set on grand Avenue in suburban London,Ontario,in a quiet location. Staff are very welcoming indeed,friendly and attentive. Rooms ( check out 101) are spacious and attractively designed in an traditional way. The restaurant is elegantly appointed with a classy feel. Good for lunch or dinner.

I bought a bliss package for two nights to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our room was nice but need some touch ups done specially in the bathroom. Dinner was good our waiter was extremely nice. Breakfast was not so great. I expected more as I love breakfasts this one did not satisfy me at all. Spa was great, clean and services we got were amazing. Some front desk personnel were rude and not pleasant. Also last and the most upsetting that we were promised high speed internet and it was not delivered to us. We called few times and complained specially on Monday when my husband needed to work and it took 30 min to send an email?? At least don’t advertise that you have high speed internet or maybe say that third floor doesn’t have high speed . Nothing was done regarding this issue. Overall experience was ok. I give this place average.

The hotel is a nicely restored manor house. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. It provided a pleasant change from generic, institutional hotels. Reception staff was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed an excellent late night dinner in the dining room: the food and the service were great! Our room was very quiet- notwithstanding its location over the front door and overlooking the parking lot. The included buffet breakfast was somewhat disappointing: poor service and a lackluster selection. Overall- it was still an exceptional stay and I would rebook at this hotel again.

My wife and I had a very small (30 people), but very beautiful wedding at Bellamere in London ontario. We then came to Idlewyld Inn for the night. Our waitress there was the most friendly and caring person either of us have dealt with. I would recommend this place to anyone just based on her interaction alone. Not to mention how beautiful the room was. We even had an interaction with the owner. He was super friendly and had a really cute puppy with him, that we got to visit with for a little. So maybe the puppy makes me biased while I right this. All joking aside I would give Idlewyld 10 stars if I could. I highly recommend staying here. Even if only for a night. Thank you again to the Staff, and Owner.

The staff asked if our visit was for a special occasion and it was for our 51st anniversary. They had chocolates and an anniversary card in the room. The room had the only porch facing the front of the building. Cozy and it overlooked the beautiful gardens below. The staff were extra friendly so that this first visit felt like we had known them all our lives.
