My friend and I had a double room which was beautifully appointed with a fireplace, wide screen TV and 10 foot ceilings! Tastefully decorated with antiques, (new) appropriate artwork and even well-worn runner carpets on the wooden stairs. The Relax package was a very good deal: we made great use of the $100 dinner credit - our 3-course meal was... More

After reading the positive reviews about the Woodlawn Inn I was really looking forward to a romantic get-a-way with my husband for 2 nights. The first thing that put me off was having to drag our luggage up to the 2nd floor because there wasn't a bell hop or elevator. The carpet on the stairs was completely worn out, I... More

We stayed at the Woodlawn Inn based on a recommendation from a colleague who lives in the area. The Inn is very deceiving from the outside, as it is quite spacious. Our room was large, clean, and had a small Juliet style balcony. Although our assigned room noted twin beds, the room had two (2) double beds, which was very... More

This is a perfect stop after getting through Toronto area traffic. A beautiful B&B in a nice beach town. Elegant large rooms with a cozy bar. The restaurant is outstanding, well-priced, and the owners are lovely.

This is a wonderfully historic beautiful gem of a country inn in Cobourg, Ontario. Our first time staying here, was absolutely magnificent. The building originally built in 1835 is very special in decor and architecture. We had a perfect room for our one night stay.

I took a photography workshop in Cobourg, Ontario in early June and stayed at the Woodlawn Inn. My first delightful stay in this well maintained hotel two years ago was unforgettable, and this was a repeat experience. Both times I was taken back in memory to the English atmosphere of the ‘60s and‘70s in all its charm and quaintness. I... More
