I actually stayed at this Inn twice during August. The first time I was on my own waiting for 2 friends to arrive from other parts of Ontario. The second time was after my friends showed up. My first night was great - the room...More

"The Pen" was a terrific experience, good value for money and so much fun for the children. They were especially pleased because they both got an upper bunk! The beach was just minutes away and even though we arrived before our room was ready, the...More

Only spent one night in Cobourg and we booked the King George Inn, partially because of the quirky factor ie it being an ex jail. We had two rooms, one in the main building which seemed to be a bit less unusual, but a little...More

The only saving grace of this hotel was that it was unique. We were passing through town on a road trip and thought it would be a fun place to stay. 3 adults booked into the room and nobody cared to tell us that although...More

About
Description
This is a beautiful 1906 Georgian manor that has big bright rooms as well as the jail themed rooms for that authentic jail feel . Lots to do in Cobourg . Places to eat and entertainment abound , especially in the More summer . We are steps from the 5th nicest beach in Canada. We are in the downtown on the harbour and steps away from Victoria Hall and the Heritage downtown. Our own Pub/Restaurant is 75 yards away at 38 Covert St which is an easy walk. Shopping and restaurants for many tastes and what ever tickles your fancy or your palates. We of course have all the usual fast food restaurants a short drive or bus ride or Cab Fare away. We are 60 Mile east of Toronto about a mile south of Highway 401 which runs east to Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal or all of Quebec. West, we have Highways 401, 407, 404, 400, 403 and the Queen Elizabeth Way connecting the GTA and all of Ontario right down to Niagara Falls. The GTA (Toronto) is currently the fastest growing city in N. America with its Airport. Less
