This little inn seemed just perfect for us. The decor just seemed right for our taste, staff were so friendly, room clean and fresh and we could just step out our door to sit and have a glass of wine before dinner. We booked the package, had an excellent dinner in the diningroom ... the best steak I've had for... More

We stayed here for a couple of days to attend a wedding. It's cute enough at first glance but then you notice the need for extreme maintenance. Our room had a white powder substance that appeared to be coming from the air conditioner and our bathroom was full of some kind of fruit flies. When we told housekeeping about it... More

Dear JSLExplores, Thanks for your review. All of our staff go over and above to give our guests superior service and thanks for pointing out that the bathroom window did not close all the way and let in the flies that you mentioned. We do our best to keep our 1835 inn in top shape and we will fix that... More

A rainy, fall nighttime drive up the 401 to this gem nestled in the lovely town of Coburg Ontario. We booked a cottage escape for one night and were thoroughly impressed. After a quick check in, we ran through the down pour to our superior cottage a few steps from the main inn. We opened the door to relaxation personified.... More

My wife and I had booked a single overnight stay at the Woodlawn. This had been our second time staying there. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to have had our room upgraded to a Superior room. Enormous is an understatement.. the room was huge, well appointed, very comfortable and had terrific character. The only downside to the stay... More

THIS HOTEL is classy with modern amenities, including free WIFI. The rooms are pretty & comfortable, with high quality linen & good desks & beds. The lamps are well placed to give guests enough light, without being too bright. We liked the paintings and decor. In the Presidential suite, the jacuzzi was superb. Excellent breakfast is included and you can... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Woodlawn Inn this past weekend for a short getaway from Toronto life. Cobourg was much smaller than I had anticipated, but I digress... The Inn was very quaint and we were promptly greeted by the owner and checked in at lightning speed. The Inn is very rustic, but I love the sense of... More

We visited the town of Cobourg and the Woodlawn Inn during the past week for our August get-away. We booked ourselves in at the Woodlawn Inn for our get-away and we were looking forward to a few days of being pampered. It was our first time at the Woodlawn Inn and we were not disappointed. We have visited many inns... More

Crispy chicken stuffed with chorizo, mashed potatoes, crisp yummy veggies. Started with the beet salad, a work of art. Pricey but worth it. Vegetarian choice available. Service was good. Good music might help the ambiance. Need to funk it up a bit.

What a lunch box let down. No way this is more then a 3 star facility at it's best! Sure not worth the price, it is priced like it thinks it is located in a bigger town then Cobourg. The Inn is and very dated and twee. They couldn't even put a soap dish in the bathroom and the toilet... More
