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. Our ground floor room, #10, was huge, spotless and very comfortable with a very convenient door exiting to the parking lot. Great if you have a problem with...

Dined here with husband and friend and we all had the special the beef tenderloin. The presentation was beautiful and the food was excellent...... however our server was Christine and she is definitely not of the caliber of fine dining. I handed her a knife that had food on it and she kept inspecting it and then reluctantly brought me...

I had a business dinner here on their patio area and it was wonderful. The service was attentive, but extremely relaxed. The food was excellent. A great value and meal - the bar inside also looked extremely fun. I would definitely come here again.

Stumbled onto the Carlyle Inn while visiting friends in Port Hope and stayed four nights. What a great find! The Inn has 10 unique rooms, a restaurant and a bar/pub all build into a former bank building. We had room #7 on the south side of the second floor. Spacious room, nicely decorated, comfortable, well maintained and spotless. The cleaning...

I grabbed a quick bite to eat for lunch at the Carlyle. The food was typical bar type grub but was served in good time and was hot as well. If I were to return I would probably try the dining room instead of the bar, in hopes the food from the menu varied from that of the bar. The...

We went to Carlisles for lunch. Server was okay. She gave us our menus. Returned a few minutes later to take our order even before asking us if we would like a drink. My husband had blue cheese burger. He enjoyed it but thought somewhat strong due to the blue cheese. I had seafood crepes. They weren't very hot, temperature...
