Great location and service . We had some misunderstanding during the check in process ,not a real big deal. The staff promptly fixed the issue and accommodate us in a bigger and more comfortable room.

I brought my father for lunch at Idlewylde after more than a year of Covid restrictions. We were so excited since the patio at Idlewylde is one of our family’s favourite places. There was a fixed menu which was fine, however, for the price the quality of food was very disappointing and not the standard we were used to. Cheap sides, steak was grocery store quality and dessert was obviously from the freezer and on par with a Costco product. Definitely not made in house Strawberries were awful, hard and with no flavour. I am hoping this is not going to be the “new” standard with new ownership and Covid challenges. The last time I went was summer of 2019 and the food was exquisite. Not even close this time

This hotel was selected out of several options to celebrate another E and E mini getaway. It is part of the chain of Ontario's Finest Hotels and after staying at the amazing Sterling Inn and Spa in Niagara Falls (another Ontario's Finest Hotel), it was an easy decision to try this hotel. Our initial reservation consisted of the Queen Bed Courtyard Suite. But upon arriving and viewing the rom we decided to change to a King size suite. The receptionist was very accommodating and showed us 3 different rooms. We settled on the top floor King and Front Balcony suite. We were not disappointed and loved the comfortable bed, great pillows and room set up. The shower was very nice with great heat and water pressure. Our only regret was not being able to spend time on the balcony overlooking their beautiful front entrance area. The room comes with a complimentary breakfast in the morning and you can have room service (for a surcharge) or dine in the main level. We dine in the main level and enjoyed a wonderful full breakfast with coffee / tea, choice of juice, eggs done anyway you prefer, choice of meats, hash browns and toast. The receptionists were all fantastic, friendly and helpful. They helped us with recommendations for shopping, restaurants and anything we needed for the room. They went above and beyond and made our stay fantastic. This is not your basic cookie cutter hotel. The Idlewyld Inn and Spa boasts both class, charm and comfort.
