We visited London for a one-night getaway. What a great little spot to be nestled in! We found the Idlewyld Inn to be clean, comfortable, well positioned to downtown London's many shops & restaurants, with service that is top notch! The rooms were clean & well equipped. The breakfast also a hit for us before starting our trek home. We will return!

We were warmly greeted by the most professional and personable man named John. He was there working the night shift every night during our 3 night stay. Not only did he provide us with great conversation, but even had prepared us 2 breakfast boxes to take with us for our early departure (5am) on the morning of our flight back home. We especially enjoyed a personal tour of the main floor the evening we arrived late from our flight into London. Cara was another front desk hostess who truly wen... Read more

The Idlewyld Inn and Spa is located in an updated structure dating back over 100 years. It has been modernized but still retains its rustic and colorful charm. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom was very modern. We did not use the Spa or pool but other people apparently come for just those features. Although old, it does have an elevator and that helped my wife who has some walking difficulties. There is a restaurant on site which was absolutely fascinating. They also provide a compl...

Brought my fiancee home to meet the family and chose the Idlewyld because I grew up next door and the hotel is perfectly situated in my old neighbourhood. I've done a lot of travelling and stayed in a lot of accommodations and the Idlewyld is by far my all-time favourite. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the service - the staff make you feel at home. The building is of course an attraction on its own, but combined with the great care they take in making guests feel welcomed, this hotel ... Read more

Recently stayed for one night on a week night. Wasn't very busy there--so was lovely and quiet. Room was clean and comfortable, but a little "old" smelling (maybe not seeing enough airing out). Very nicely decorated. We didn't get to see much of the common areas as we came and went fairly quickly in the evening and there was some kind of interview being recorded in the morning in one of those rooms, but the garden out front was a pretty place to take some photographs of our kids.

My daughter was graduating from Western on a Monday and we were looking for something a little different from the usual Wellington strip hotels. The Idlewyld was exactly what I had hoped for...they have an amazing patio for dinner and drinks, amazingly friendly staff, very clean rooms, great showers, charming decor, close to but not too close to Wellington to make easy to get around...can't say enough good things about the Inn and their staff!

This is the place to stay when coming to Canada. It's located in a neighborhood that has nice houses with such character. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The building is wonderfully restored with attention to detail. The receptionist, Cara, was just wonderful and made us feel at home. The entire staff was gracious and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here!

We stayed for 2 nights (May 31 & June 01) and were totally enchanted by our accommodations. The room was spacious, comfortable, well appointed, quiet and lovely. The included breakfast was quite nice, staff were so helpful & the evening BBQ on the patio was delicious. The grounds were lovely. We would highly recommend the Idlewyld as THE place to stay while in London. It was charming. Thank you!

This is a really nice, quaint, B&B-like hotel in London, Ontario. Its decor is classic and classically Canadian. The service was friendly and helpful. I also ate at the restaurant with a group, and it was a fantastic meal. I suppose the only downside is the lack of a fitness centre, however it was nicer to run outside (which wouldn't be possible in the winter). However, if you're looking for a nice spa and hotel for a weekend getaway, this is a great little spot!

We were a group of 50 and had a beautiful family style dinner in the garden courtyard, a perfect setting. The Beef Tenderloin with roasted veg was delicious. My wife and I stayed over night after the reception. Room was very clean and well appointed. This was our 5th time here and we make sure to always get a different room since each is unique and an experience unto themselves. Breakfast the next morning finished a wonderful stay.

I booked this Inn for a one night reunion for five former university women friends. I admit I booked it because it's sister Inn, The Elmhurst Inn (Ingersoll, ON) was full. I had never been to Idlewyld but had driven by it over the years and always admired the Victorian beauty of this old mansion. We booked two rooms: a regular room on the second floor with two queen beds and a suite referred to as The Library on the main floor. We used the suite for three of our party and the regular room for... Read more

Although my husband and I are residents of London, Ontario , our first experience dining in the restaurant at the Inn was just over two years ago with relatives to celebrate a birthday.

Chose the Idlewyld Inn, because my son and daughter-n-law had reception there. Excellent decision! Like stepping back in time to an eloquent era. The staff was more than friendly and helpful. Compliments to the chefs. And a special shout out to their amazing gardener Fernando, he made my wife's stay extra special (great ambassador for th Inn). Would definitely return!

We stayed for one evening on our way to Toronto and found this hotel very lovely. The staff was very accommodating and allowed us to eat at the restaurant even though it was getting late. They did not have a children's menu for our 11 year old but were more than happy to make him pasta with cheese. My meal, chicken in a chickpea crust was excellent. Our room with 2 double beds was very large and comfortable. I am so happy we found Idlewyld and will definitely return!

My husband and I were looking for a peaceful and charming inn to stay for the night. This was one of our most memorable stays we have ever had. The room had tremendous character, one that you would expect from a Victorian mansion, but at the same time it was fresh, clean and bright. The food was incredible. I highly recommend the restaurant. Very classy and the server was top notch. Everyone is friendly and the gardens pretty.

My husband and I really liked this charming bed and breakfast. Our room come with a wonderful breakfast that included smoked salmon and real eggs. The bathroom was very updated, bed was comfortable and would definitely stay there again. I loved that I could do my morning walk around the neighborhood. The only thing I could suggest would be to update the elevator, it had a funny smell. The staff was also great. I will be back.

Beautiful historical inn. Rooms comfortable and very clean with great showers....I say showers because we stayed there two days and it was very hot during our stay. Receptionist was very kind and moved us to a cooler room on the same floor without us asking. Very appreciated. Food was amazing and the service was good but the maitre 'd was a little grumpy. Outside patio very nice. Would go back.

Motoring around the UK and Europe you'll often find small family-run Inns that are "full service". The Idlewyld is very reminiscent of this experience, offering, charming rooms that combine modern hotel facilities with olde-world charm and comfort in a beautifully restored 1800s mansion house. If that isn't enough, the kitchen is MIchelin star worthy in both service and cuisine. Even breakfast on the patio, surrounded by a classical garden, or a drink in the shady rear patio by the Buddhis... Read more

We had our wedding at the Idlewyld Inn in July 2016 and it would be difficult to say anything went wrong. The consults with Effie, the General Manager, were easy and informative. She made everything so easy. The service on the wedding day was perfect.

A most pleasant 1 night stay. Excellent reception greeting and only too happy to impart knowledge of London area for us out of towners. Great options re dining, inside (2 patios) or outside. Food was super at both breakfast and dinner and waitstaff more than helpful and efficient. The attention to details is not overlooked. Will definitely stay again.

We chose to come here as a romantic getaway and birthday celebration. The inn is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The staff is so very helpful and accommodating. And the food was the best we've possibly have ever had! We stayed in room 102 and it was a gorgeous room with large jacuzzi tub (which we were able to enjoy with some champagne). We had lunch and dinner at the restaurant as well as breakfast the next morning. The food was absolutely amazing, cannot say enough. Delicious dishes... Read more

A truly beautiful place with amazingly good food! Spa experience was wonderful. I was emailed a coupon for 25% off food and spa, forgot to use it at checkout, notified Anka almost 2 weeks later and she immediately credited my charge card. Also, my granddaughter lost one of her starter diamond earrings in the room. Housekeeping found it and it is on its way to us. Remarkable service all the way around.

We were in the area for a wedding. We could not book at the location of the wedding, and we saw this site on Trip Advisor. We researched the Idlewyld Inn and it looked like a great place to stay.

First thing you will make note of the property is very stately. Very nicely kept. Very warm welcome awaits in the lobby with a piano setting i... Read more

This beautiful Victorian architecture inn (renovated to the finest detail) was just perfect for our 3 day visit to London, Ontario. We truly appreciated the attention of super friendly staff, enjoyed variety of well presented cuisine and were thankful for clean and comfortable room. The massage, performed by a professional RMT was superb as well.

Spacy rooms in Victorian style. Very charming and original building. Unfortunately in our room we had to stand in the bathtub to take a shower. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Although we arrived at 3pm we could still have lunch despite a wedding going on at the same time. The Reuben sandwich was one of the best I ever had. Breakfast was also very good. If we ever return to London ON we will certainly stay here again!

This was a surprise visit after not being able to find a room in Port Stanley. We could not have been more pleased with everything about the Inn, and now consider it a blessing that we couldn't get a room at some tacky beach hotel. The room was sweet and adorable, with a modern bathroom. Dinner on the veranda was truly spectacular, we took more pictures of the food then of each other, even though I thought I looked darn good that night.

My business coach loves loves this place for our retreats and workshops. I can see why and too have fallen in love with the place, its staff and the top notch service that they provide.

I stayed here last year, and it's one of those places that I would absolutely visit again and recommend to others! As you're driving down the road, you don't expect to end up at such a nice place. As you enter in, you realize how beautiful the inn is. The room I stayed in was comfortable, though I don't remember if there was air conditioning. The room was also clean, and surprisingly large. If you get a chance to visit and stay here, do so.

There is not one thing I could think of that could have made our two day stay better. Everything about Idlewyld is first class. I think the continental breakfast was excellent as was lunch and dinner. Now the staff,our entire stay I did not see one staff member that was not smiling and greeting us with a heart felt hello. The staff like what they do and it shows. My hat off to everyone at hotel for making our 39th anniversary a memorable one. Thank you hope to see everyone again.
