I recently started the the Carlyle Inn and Bistro for a few days and found the host, Dave, and the location of the Inn ideal. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable and the easy parking was a bonus especially with the changeable January weather. Unfortunately this time I did get to eat lunch or dinner in the Bistro...

A group of 4 of us shared the double queen room. Very nice accommodation, and very clean. We enjoyed the included breakfast and the location. It's a nice short walk to look around downtown. Port hope has a lot of interesting shops to snoop around in and it was really neat to see the salmon running up the river.

We usually stay in Cobourg during the Vintage Film Festival but this year we tried The Carlyle. The 7 of us had Rooms 2, 4, 5 and 6 (the best!). Staff were friendly, funny, carried our luggage upstairs and paid special attention to birthday dinner arrangements in the Tangir Room. It's a good price and a 3 minute walk to...

My wife and I stayed in Room #1 at the Carlyle, and couldn't have had a better stay that weekend. Staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. The hotel is well-situated in Port Hope and is beautifully decorated and clean. We WILL be back next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Due to our late arrival, we had requested a snack be sent to our room. It was even better than what we hoped for, perfect for weary travelers. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Bath area was clean and had all the amenities. Breakfast was delicious. Dave and his staff are friendly and professional.

We checked in for a getaway weekend recently, with plans to explore the surrounding area and use the Carlyle as our base. The room was comfortable and average but our stay was heavily influenced by the Hotel's service levels at check-out time. We were still in our room, packing up at 11:00 a.m. Yes, this is the posted check-out time....

The first call was at 11:15 and the next call was at 11:30. If the customer had informed us ahead of time that they wanted a little more time there would not have been a problem. Thanks Dave

We stayed over at the Carlisle Inn after enjoying the matinee at the Capitol Theatre's fabulous presentation of Mama Mia. the show is excellent, a "must see". The Carlisle Inn was perfect.
