We stayed in this Bed and Breakfast last year and really liked it. We returned to Madisonville this year for a function and decided to stay at the Woodbine again. Everyone is so pleasant and the atmosphere makes you feel like you are at home. The food is FABULOUS!!! We recommend the Woodbine to anyone wanting a unique Bed and Breakfast. A great experience!!!

Upon arrival,we were greeted by the owner,planting flowers in front of the hotel.After we checked in,she pointed out the dining room where we had reservations for dinner.Our room was clean and everthing was in order.Our group socialized on the porch for awhile until dinner.Food was excellent and service was great.Our night was quiet and comfortable.I woke up at my usual time of 5:30 am and went to get coffee with a friend.We drank our coffee in my truck behind the kitchen area.We were surprised by the owner and a fresh pot of coffee in which she brought out to us for a refill.Breakfast was included with the room.It was fresh and delicious.Our stay was great along with the décor.I will recommend it and will stay there again if the opportunity arises.Ronald Zwernemann

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable beds. Very hospitable staff who bend over backwards to accommodate you and treat you the way people were treated when the hotel was built. The quality of the food would rival or surpass that of any four star restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

We booked a room in Woodbine Hotel & Restaurant for a special weekend. The town does not offer much, only an old cafe we couldn't check out because it was closed. The place was above mu expectations, nice room, a lot of old decorative things that give the hotel a good atmosphere. Dinner was abundant and tasty. The dessert was the best part! I would definetly recommend this place if you want a relaxed weekend retreat.

The Woodbine Hotel and Restaurant was by far one of the most romantic and well preserved bed and Breakfast that my husband and I have had the pleasure of staying in. We visited for an early Valentines get away and had a great time. Everything was very clean and the service was extremely friendly. I am sure we will be back in the future.

My brothers and I came to visit my sister who lives in Madisonville. All three rooms were comfortable and very pleasant. Fantastic omelets, by the way.

Could not get the above ratings to work for outstanding. It was not clear how the fan & light worked in the main room a lot of time was used to find out. We could not get the whirlpool jets to work, it look easy but did not work. The dining was outstanding.
