The Woodlawn Inn

 

We stayed one night at the Woodlawn Inn and were impressed by the Inn. It is full of character, warm and inviting. The room was very clean and comfortable with all of the things we might need during our stay. I would definitely recommend making The Woodlawn Inn their choice of hotels while staying in Coburg.

A lovely little find in Coburg

On the last leg of our trip we booked at the Woodlawn Inn. We were pleasantly surprised how lovely and "old school" everything was. The staff were outstanding from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. Requests for a certain room were accommodated and the dinner was delicious. Attention to detail with our meals was apparent, as was our breakfast the next morning

Stay here!

Best place to stay in Cobourg...and we've tried almost every hotel/motel available!
The staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean!!
We will only stay at the Woodlawn Inn from now on.

Always a wonderful stay!

We have been coming to the Woodlawn Inn now for 2 years. We love Cobourg and it's always out favourite place to stay when we are in town from Toronto. The Hospitality is top notch, staff is friendly and helpful, willing to help with any request. The rooms are spacious and clean, more of a traditional look which fits the style of the inn. The rooms we have stayed in always have an amazing tub and super comfortable bed. Little touches like books in the room or cozy fireplaces make it a great spot to stay in and watch a movie on a cold winter night.

I would highly recommend the Woodlawn if you're in town.

Wonderful in every way

We only had the pleasure of staying one night at the Woodlawn Inn, however, it is definitely on our list to return! We have traveled to many of Ontario's small Inn's over the years and this one has become one of our favorites visited. The historic character has been well maintained and the rooms are spacious, sparkling clean and perfectly appointed for a romantic getaway. Both dinner and breakfast we're served in the cozy, quaint dining rooms and the food was delicious! The staff at every turn were very hospitable and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

Lovely Inn in Cobourg

I and my wife spent 3 nights at the Woodlawn Inn, on our trip from Kingston to Toronto, visiting Cobourg area, The Inn is very small and pretty. The room was large, but the bathroom was somehow strange-they have differnt rooms on ground floor with different bath rooms. There is no elevator/lift so if you have laguages you must assure that you get the ground floor. The breakfast was very delicious and they have free parking. The price in my opinion is quite expensive for a town such as cobourg.

Very Exceptional

 

Tucked away on a major road is this inn that will take you back in time. Words like elegant, comfortable, and relaxing come to mind. Our room was very spacious, bright and clean. The only issue I have, is the lack of a stand/table to hold our bagS. The breakfasts that are included are delicious...the sausage was incredible. Dinner was very good. Since it was raining, we weren't able to sit outdoors, but it looked like a lovely space to enjoy the outdoors. A very pleasant surprise from a busy road.

A Little Slice of Heaven

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Woodlawn Inn for a friends road trip. Our trip was planned very last minute and the Inn that I normally stay at was booked and so, I was left looking for another place to stay - yes, I am a creature of habit and when I find a place I love, I tend to only return to that one place. Well, it looks like I've found another slice of heaven in Cobourg. Upon arriving at the Woodlawn Inn, we were met with the feeling of being encapsulated within the romantic feelings of an old English novel. It was charming and beautifully manicured. As we entered the Inn, the atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming, clean and classical. We were met by very friendly staff who were so helpful. Our room was whimsical and charismatic. Each room has its own unique design, both capturing some old traditional and modern style designs. Another wonderful feature is that this Inn is located in the heritage part of the district and it is a hop skip and a jump from downtown which is amazing as we walked to dinner. Our breakfasts were included within our stay prices and it was absolutely delicious. The Woodlawn Inn has now become my go-to place to stay when I visit Cobourg and I cannot express enough how beautiful our stay was...this Inn allowed us to feel like we had actually left the country, even though it was only for the weekend. We will definitely be coming back!

A HIDDEN GEM IN COBOURG, ONTARIO!

We discovered this gracious and stately historic inn thanks to friends who had recently visited for a family dinner. The restaurant is open to the public - but we decided to book accommodation along with dinner and breakfast - for a nice get away! There are lots of options to choose from on their web site. We were delighted with all aspects of our visit. We knew driving in to this stately well preserved building that it was going to be a lovely experience. Sometimes you just know!! It is charming and elegant - in every way - from the beautiful antiques and heritage furnishings in all the rooms....to the colourful gardens surrounding the Inn...to the high end dining room (see separate review for the restaurant - which is truly wonderful) where we enjoyed a fabulous dinner with fine china sparkling glassware and cutlery and starched white linens....(a multi course breakfast was included). The rooms are large and very well appointed with many amenities including luxurious high end linens. It is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion (they even have a Presidential Suite). It was like going back in time in many ways - when we lived in a gentler world. If you are in this area....treat yourself - we highly recommend a night or two at The Woodlawn Inn - the town of Cobourg is so pretty and has much to offer if you are a tourist. We know we will happily be returning the next time we need a little get away with some old world decadence and superb ambiance!

Probably the best restaurant in the Cobourg area

Our go to, especially for celebrations. A family member came to visit and stayed in the inn. He was very impressed with the service and quality of the room. We have never had a bad experience. Good food, very nice surroundings, great service. And very nice landscaping.

Christmas Eve Tradition

Always An Elegant Evening

Every year our photography club has its Christmas dinner at the Woodlawn Inn, and we are never disappointed. The food is always so delicious and the service excellent. This year the two waitresses assigned to our group really added to the evening; they were not only efficient but also made the evening fun for all of us. Simply put, the Woodlawn Inn is the best restaurant in Cobourg as well as its most elegant inn.

We came back

 

My g/f and I go here for holiday celebrations. We came back for the Thanksgiving Special.
We were well taken care of by our favorite server Michelle. The turkey and vegetable and potatoes were delicious. We were so full we had to take our savory desserts home!
Till next time.

A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening!

Enjoyed an overnight at the beautiful Woodlawn Inn in Cobourg, Ontario (see separate review) and had dinner in their restaurant on a Sunday evening. At 7PM the place was filled with people enjoying superbly prepared food by attentive and efficient servers. This is not a place for children - but more for a romantic evening, a special occasion or just friends getting together for a delicious dinner. They feature a Chefs Table and a Prix Fixe four course menu as well as a regular menu with enough options to please any palate. The wine list is extensive and when ordering a bottle of wine - it is graciously decanted at your table. Food presentation was to a high standard and we enjoyed every morsel. We will definitely go back for dinner again in the near future. This Inn seems to be a hidden gem in Cobourg, Ontario - who knew? Lovely, lovely spot.

September 2019

Never Disappointed!

The food and the service at the Woodlawn is always consistently good. We particularly enjoy the Chef's Table - a surprise 5-course meal with wines pairings. We have never been disappointed.

My fiancée and I spent a night in the Cottage Superior Room and our entire experience was outstanding. The Inn itself is beautiful and our room was the perfect combination of cozy and quaint, while having everything we needed. We had both dinner and breakfast at the Inn during our stay, both of which were delicious meals. The staff were excellent in every regard. We would highly recommend and will certainly be coming back in the future.

If you are looking for fantastic food and a beautiful setting, then the Woodlawn is the place to go.

What a classy place! Love the cozy bar area. We were here for a gin tasting, which was held in the lovely private dining room. What a terrific event! Well done, Stephen! While we didn't eat here, we will be back, since upon reviewing it, the menu carries a lot of interesting dishes.

August 2019

Managed to get in there for lunch today. I had the house made pasta which was amazing! Also had the maple creme brulee which was just plain delicious. The price is on the high end but very well worth it as most of the food is made in house and you cannot beat the freshness. Will be back soon for sure.

Extremely convenient to the Highland games We we’re attending.

This was a much-needed get away from our ongoing home renovations and this property exceeded all our wishes with excellent accommodations with a salute to older regal times. The dining room experience exceeded the 5-star rating I gave my wife from a previous business stay and the lounge was a quiet oasis and the tables in the yard were wonderful on the beautiful summer day we had. An all-round suburb experience set in a beautiful small town.

“I booked the King Superior room for my wedding day, as a spot for my maid of honour, flower girl, mother and myself to get ready before the ceremony. I asked via email if early check-in was possible and Stephen quickly responded to tell me it was fine and to congratulate me. This was fantastic news; I had asked the same thing of the local Best Western and been told No rather rudely. I really appreciated Stephen's consideration. The room was gorgeous and spacious, and the service was friendly. After the wedding, my new husband and I spent our wedding night there and he was also enamored with the place. (And he is VERY picky when it comes to accommodations.) The hot tub was amazing and breakfast the next morning was divine. We are already planning on coming back for our first anniversary.”
