We have been to this restaurant a few times as it is a favourite of my parents. It is traditional, with white linen table cloths in a fairly formal atmosphere of an old Victorian mansion. The gardens are pretty and the house impressive. The staff are longstanding and professional. I think it is an excellent restaurant in its category of... More

The Woodlawn is a great historic Inn nestled in the quiet town of Cobourg. My wife and I enjoyed our two day get-away. The rooms were tastefully decorated reflecting the time the Inn was built. We had dinner at the Inn and really enjoyed the service, menu and extensive wine list. Would definitely stay at the Woodlawn again.

Service was very good. Enjoyed the food. Good value. Nice place. Close to mid town for shopping or walking Will return. Cobourg is a very nice town. Suggest you visit the harbour and beach area. Very friendly staff.

I needed to book this last minute a few days prior because of a family emergency and picked up a great deal on a competitor's site. I also benefited from the excellent exchange rate from USD to CAD -- otherwise, I'm not sure this would have been quite as worth the money. (aside: this is one of the fanciest B&Bs... More

Cobourg offers very few hotel and restaurant options but the Woodlawn Inn is a real gem. The building was built in the 19th century and renovated into a hotel in the 1980's. On the trendy scale, it's at opposite ends of the "W" hotels, and that's just fine. Cracking hard wood floors, comfortable rooms with a gas fireplace, etc. And... More

Although we live nearby, we decided to go to the Woodlawn as a mini-escape over Valentine's Day. We stayed in the Presidential Suite, and the rooms were gorgeous. The living area had a fireplace working double-time to keep the room warm in -40 degree weather, with comfortable seating and thoughtful amenities. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room very... More

We just got home from the Woodlawn Inn and have eaten at this fine eating establishment before. The staff are really polite and no one can complain about the food or service. Both get top notch rating from my wife and I and the decor is great there with the wood burning fireplace close by. You never felt your in... More

Staff are very nice. The room is comfortable and spacious! The price is competitive with chain hotels and a much nicer stay. I am yet to eat at the restaurant but plan on doing so! Excited to stay here for a week!

We booked Woodlawn Inn at Coburg for our New Years eve. Woodlawn looks like a beautifully renovated 1800's estate. It is truly beautiful and in the heart of Coburg. You can walk to the lake! We stayed in a "cottage' on the premises, had all amenities plus a great fireplace. It is a bed & breakfast and has a "white... More

We hosted our parents 50th Anniversary party at the Woodlawn. We occupied 17 of the 20 rooms. It was the perfect place to get friends and family together for an evening - a delicious dinner, cocktails, and lots of laughs. Marisa was very helpful and accomodating with the organization of this party. The Inn is lovely, and very comfortable -... More
