The Woodlawn is a great historic Inn nestled in the quiet town of Cobourg. My wife and I enjoyed our two day get-away. The rooms were tastefully decorated reflecting the time the Inn was built. We had dinner at the Inn and really enjoyed the service, menu and extensive wine list. Would definitely stay at the Woodlawn again.

Service was very good. Enjoyed the food. Good value. Nice place. Close to mid town for shopping or walking Will return. Cobourg is a very nice town. Suggest you visit the harbour and beach area. Very friendly staff.

I needed to book this last minute a few days prior because of a family emergency and picked up a great deal on a competitor's site. I also benefited from the excellent exchange rate from USD to CAD -- otherwise, I'm not sure this would have been quite as worth the money. (aside: this is one of the fanciest B&Bs... More

Cobourg offers very few hotel and restaurant options but the Woodlawn Inn is a real gem. The building was built in the 19th century and renovated into a hotel in the 1980's. On the trendy scale, it's at opposite ends of the "W" hotels, and that's just fine. Cracking hard wood floors, comfortable rooms with a gas fireplace, etc. And... More

Although we live nearby, we decided to go to the Woodlawn as a mini-escape over Valentine's Day. We stayed in the Presidential Suite, and the rooms were gorgeous.
