When I checked out of a nearby (disgusting) hotel, I was blessed to find availability at the Woodlawn Inn. It was beautiful!! I was so grateful to find it. The room was just lovely. Bathroom and amenities were luxurious, including the heat lamp. Having the fabulous restaurant on site was great for a single woman on business.

I loved everything about The Woodlawn Inn from my spacious room with a small balcony to the consistently delicious food. The Inn is close to the VIA station, making for an easy trip from Toronto, yet I never heard the train from the Inn. All of the staff are helpful and personable.

I only had one night in the Cobourg area, beautiful rooms, wonderful, classy dinner service, breakfast included. Small staff, but my index is that everyone there is on a mission to make sure you have a great stay, which they did. Personally, I loved it that the door are still operated by a real key! Please don't change that. 4... More

This hotel is locally known for its gourmet kitchen but that's something from the past. It's glory days are over and although the rooms are large and the bed and bathroom excellent, the whole atmosphere feels like something from the past.
