The Station Inn
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Cochrane
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I stayed here with a friend for one night when we travelled to Cochrane on The Northlander train. The location is ideal as it is right in the train station. The lobby is very sparse and functional as it is the waiting room of the station for Ontario Northland buses and trains. The room was basic but comfortable and seemed very clean. The restaurant attached to the inn/station was good with hearty breakfasts available. If I were to visit Cochrane again, I would certainly consider staying here.

Room Tip: South side faces rail yard; north side faces street.

Good location, friendly polite staff and provides good value, functional, clean and comfortable rooms. Very comfortable beds and station restaurant provides great breakfasts.

Great place to stay before taking polar bear express further north to Moosenee, plenty of long term car parking.

Located right in the old train station this is the true railway experience.
The rooms are reasonably priced and the staff was friendly and helpful.
Our room was clean, a fair size and had a flat screen TV.
It get's a bit busy when the "Polar Bear Express" to Moosonee is coming or going but we didn't have any problems with noise.
There is a restaurant in the station where we had a decent simple breakfast (not included) before heading out on the train.

The train station is the hotel - perfect. When you arrive in the evning with the Northlander - you don't have to search for your hotel - you stay already in the lobby.
Only one thing is not that perfect - every dinner closes in June at 8:30 pm - so when the Northlander is late - you don't get anything to eat.
Rooms are small but clean. Staff is friendly. Station Inn Restaurant for breakfast is ok.

Located right inside the Cochrane train station this hotel is very convenient for rail travellers, especially people coming or going on the Polar Bear Express. A few rooms are quite small, a result of fitting the hotel into an historic train station. Half of the rooms have trackside views, a bonus for railfans. There is a restaurant with decent food on the premises. Rooms are clean. Soap/shampoo dispensed in liquid form from hard to squeeze devices so you may want to bring your own. Recent updates include flat screen TVs.

Room Tip: If you are a railfan ask for a trackside room. If you don't like listening to trains get a room...

We stayed here with my family on our way up to Moosonee. We had an amazing stay and really enjoyed ourselves. When we got there we were greeted by the nicest people and they helped and explained themselves thoroughly. The check is was very quick and efficient. It was priced very reasonably. We then headed up to our rooms, which proved to be the perfect size for the 3 of us and very clean. The room was a little cold when we got in but a small adjustment on the air conditioner fixed the problem quickly. We were on track side but had no problems with noise. We got our wake-up call on time, and went downstairs where our receipt was ready and waiting. We enjoyed our breakfast at the Station Inn Restaurant which is located in the same building. It was affordable and very good. We then got to sit in the lobby of the building to wait for the train. It was overall a great trip.

My boyfriend and I stated here on our way to Moosonee, ON. We loved that our room, the restaurant, and the train station were all in the same building. It's very convenient in the morning!

Staff was friendly and helpful, and service was prompt and efficient. The rates are very reasonable and the rooms are clean and pleasant.

This is a very well-run hotel. If I'm ever in Cochrane again I will definitely be back.
