The Woodlawn Inn
Ranked #1 of 7 Cobourg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 December 2015

I stayed just one night at the Woodlawn Inn in Cobourg back in November as I was in the area for work. I can happily say I have now found my spot to stay for future trips to the area!

The only staff member I encountered was the lovely woman at reception whose name I have completely forgotten over the past month. She had a very unique European name and she was fantastic! I even saw her the next morning working in the kitchen helping with breakfast. A wonderful woman!

Nice rooms, although the one I had was somewhat tired with a bit of a creaky bed. I'm sure if I had asked, I would have been given another room, but all was fine for one night. Very good location. As others have said, you can park your car here and walk downtown, etc.

A hot breakfast was included in the rate. It was really good and it was made from scratch, not some assembly line buffet!

If you're in need of a wonderful place to stay in the Cobourg / Port Hope area, look no further.

Highly recommended!

We planned to stop in Cobourg on the way to a more distant destination. We found the Woodlawn Inn a worthwhile destination in itself. The comfort of the room and the excellence of the cuisine (dinner and breakfast) and the superior quality of the staff all made for a terrific visit.

I always stay here when in Cobourg! Nice rooms,great staff,good breakfast. The location is great as it is walking distance from the lake, the main street with lots of shops and restaurants and even the train station (The train from Montreal stops here so it can make a great getaway without needing a car)

We are very fortunate to be in the Town of Cobourg and our historic district location means that we are an easy walk to the waterfront, downtown amenities and even the newly renovated VIA rail station.

We stayed at this Inn on a mid-week special. The room we had was lovely but due to TV remote control issues we were upgraded to a suite - now that was fabulous! Dinner was excellent and the breakfast very good as well. Will definitely come back.

We were at the Inn for dinner and ran into the Manager in the lobby. He was very gratious and made sure our meal and service were all good. How often do you receive such personal attention from the Manager of any restaurant? He gave me the impression that if there was anything I wasn't happy with that he would make it right.
