I stay at the Carlyle whenever I am in Port Hope for business and have slept in most of the rooms. Each is unique and tastefully furnished. The beds are very comfortable. The bistro offers excellent food and has a lovely outside patio for the summer months.

We are so pleased we found this quaint gem in Port Hope. It is just a quick walk to the main street where there are some lovely shops. We booked the "couples retreat" package which included a 4 course dinner and breakfast. The restaurant offers wonderful food and a quiet dinning area.There is also a patio which looks great as...

We were a group of 9 with five rooms. We ate, slept and dined the entire weekend at the Inn and felt like we were staying with family. Highly recommend this spot for groups of friends or couples on a getaway weekend.

I discovered the Carlyle Hotel on a girls' shopping excursion, when we asked a shopkeeper for a lunch place recommendation. She recommended the fries at the Carlyle! And they were good! Since then we (husband/family) have eaten a few times at the Carlyle Bistro, and like it so much that we are considering staying over some weekend in the hotel,... More

Went to the Carlyle for Dinner with a group of 7. Was my first time going even though I live in town. Service was GREAT, not many choices on the menu but food was good. I did find it pricy for my budget but was not surprise by that, no different than the Keg. Will return for a special occasion,... More

Having enjoyed a recent lunch in the Inn's Dining Room, we decided to return for our special Valentine's Day dinner and again enjoy the Dining Room's ambiance. What we were NOT told when calling to reserve was that we would be seated in the Bar NOT the Dining Room . It was a total disappointment on what was to have... More

My daughter and I spontaneously decided to get away from Toronto for an over-night in Port Hope. Dave, the owner, was very hospitable and our room was comfortable and inviting and extremely quiet. We had dinner in the Bistro and the boeuf bourguignon and chicken Kiev were excellent. This was a lovely little excursion for mom and daughter to celebrate... More

Had lunch in the Dining Room on Monday Dec. 1st 2014. I am a Realtor who was taking a client out for lunch and unfortunately we were asked over and over if we were ready to order yet. Felt like we were being rushed although the Room was maybe a 1/4 full at best. Food maybe a 6 out of... More

We annually do a girls get away at the Carlyle and it is just fantastic. Huge rooms, lovely linen and beds, great decor of local shows and fun nostalgia. All rooms have their own bathrooms and washrooms. So quiet to sleep and so fun to drink wine pre and post shopping and pre and post dinner. It is just perfect... More

We have stayed at the Carlyle three times over the past couple years just as a getaway and have always really enjoyed it. The town has some nice shops and a good pub and the inn has a really nice dinner service in the casa blanca themed dining room. We love the charm and the staff are great.
