Loved that they had kept all the original woodwork, didn't like that the rooms had bulky air conditioner and heater.

Lovely large mansion renovated to roughly 20-room hotel and spa, with restaurant. Wonderful front and back terraces with rain/sun cover. Walking distance (10 min) to Wortley village's concentration of restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops, and only about 15-20 minutes to downtown. Quiet location. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and the staff throughout was professional and courteous.

I cannot say enough about this Inn! It was everything I was looking for in a solo getaway! The grounds and building are immaculately maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I love how the décor in the main common areas of the property are authentic to the period when it was built. Stately and luxurious! My room was tasteful, comfortable and very clean. I especially enjoyed the delicious and plentiful breakfast provided in the morning. I was able to leisurely eat and relax on the front veranda while taking in the beautiful garden and water fountain. It was excellent value for the experience! Highly recommend the Idlewyld and look forward to returning one day!

The property is beautiful and so are the common areas. I found our room didn’t match the overall aesthetic but it was very clean and had nice amenities and products. The rooms are very quiet with excellent bedding for a good night sleep. Try to get a room with a view of the grounds and with a balcony for a better experience.
