My husband and I spent 4 nights at this beautiful Victorian B and B,in the Library Room.It is furnished with gorgeous antigues,and is spotless..Viola and family were so attentive.We felt very safe ,as all Covid protocols were followed .The breakfasts were delicious,beautifully presented and served daily by Rafel-a wonderful young man who we enjoyed chatting with each morning.Rafel,your parents must be so very proud of you,as you are a true asset to the family business.Viola went out of her way to make sure she was there to greet us on our late checkin on day one,and also arranged for early breakfast for us on checkout day.And when we had a bit of a glitch for charging our EV,once again Viola helped us out.This was by far far one of our favorite B and Bs and we would highly recommend it.

My sister and I spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed the Victorian charm of this grand old house situated on a very quiet drive. It is a reasonable walking distance to downtown and all the attractions and is situated in a lovely neighborhood of private homes. Viola and her family were VERY attentive and extremely helpful. This was my first experience with a B&B and although some might be newer or more updated, I appreciated the charm of this establishment. Breakfast was wholesome and well made and served on lovely dishes. You are surrounded by antiques.

Overpriced property. Rooms smelled musty, moldy and were dusty. A/C didn't work properly, A/c only small window unit. Supposed to have continental breakfast but nobody showed up to prepare breakfast. Other guests were similarly upset at property. No fridge in rooms. Complimentary drinks were locked in kitchen, but no access to them. We cancelled 2nd night as did another guest. Even tried to call management but no answer.

first of all the day when you checked in which is really hot on the island, we even offer you to upgrade to a suite under the same rate you booked, we explained as the room only have window air condition so it may not make room cool enough especially under such high temperature, also due to the room is on the top of the building, it will make you feel hot in the night, but your party reviewed the room we offered then still decide to go to your original choice. we reminder you it may felt hot at the night due to the previous reasons but you mentioned you are not worried about hot. our property was inspected by government before we opened, if room is bad or mood or dusty as you said we were not allowed to open. also when you entering the room for check in, you never mentioned the room has strange smell, if so why you will stay there for one night. we had guests stayed in that room just one day before you checked in, they loved the room so it may not your style room. there is a fridge in the room you stayed, and you even take the tray we put on top of it in the room, i don't know why you will say there is no fridge, all the facilities we stated on website is kept same. Second you booked through Expedia and choose the "exclude Breakfast" rate, there is no continental breakfast in our property, all the guest choose the breakfast included rate will have fully serviced hot breakfast in our dining room. please make sure you read it clearly for the rate description before you make the reservation to the other property in the future.

This is a lovely old home that's been nicely updated with new bathrooms, usb connections in the bedrooms, etc. Breakfast is good and the house has an old world charm to it. The house is set back from the road on a shared driveway, so a little confusing to find at first. The property has nice trees and there's a place to sit outside. Our room also had a little sitting area, which was great for reading or watching tv (thought we were out exploring and didn't use it for that.) Charlottetown is lovely - small, but nice little shops and beautiful old homes to walk around and look at, etc. Overall, we loved this B&B and Charlottetown.

The reviews are consistently, amazing but that was not our experience. There was one or two other reviews that mirror our experience. The people are very friendly and go out of their way to accommodate you, but I felt that the owner/manager was not as reasonable. The location, grounds, and the room were very disappointing. As you make your way to the Inn, you drive along a road that reminds you of Middle America, crowded with standard commerical businesses. This made our first of PEI very discouraging. We asked ourselves why we had driven this far to end up in our own backyard. You turn into the driveway which is adequate for parking but poorly lite. The property is one of three-four other homes (which were modern) and crowded into this small "cul-de-sac". The Inn does not look to be well kept on the outside and the grounds/gardens around it were unkept and not very inviting. When you enter, you feel a bit claustrophobic, because the rooms are dark, small and cluttered. That was the same feeling I got when entering the room. I did not feel it was clean and definitely did not feel comfortable in the bed. The sheets felt thin and worn out. There was an AC, but only one small window and some necessities. The breakfast was Ok. We found these accommodations to be so disappointing that we forfeited two days and found a better place. We would not return and not recommend this place.

This lady booked our Nurse's room for 4 nights, they left on the second day for the " side trip" they called for 2 days and come back for the last night staying. When she just arrived in our place she told our staff PEI is suburb, even downtown Charlottetown is like a poor, undeveloped place. based on that we think you choose the wrong destination, you are more suitable for modern city, not PEI is beautiful charming places with lot of nature places to see. We are heritage place built in 1865, no client complain about the bed especially for Nurse's room as we just changed our mattress last year, different people has different feel about the bed, that is your personal feeling. Our housekeeping staff is very good at cleaning, our house style maybe old, but it is definitely clean. from your comments you may more suitable for staying at your home instead travelling outside. According to the breakfast, you email us for your special food requirement, we prepare it for you in advance and satisfy your all requirement, only one thing is we can not find the same brand of milk you mentioned as Canada didn't carry it. Maybe this didn't make you happy. we are proud of our breakfast as 99% of the guest are really enjoy the breakfast here, even some guest have special request like gluten free, diary free, we all made the different food for them. PEI has lot of tourism came every year and enjoy the beach, food here. you are the fewer person we met don't like this beautiful island.
