Greeted by Rod, friendly, shown to a nice room. Decent size for 2, queen bed, small bathroom with shower over tub, WiFi, TV (did not turn tv on at all) rooms worked well for us.

Hillhurst is a wonderful place to stay. It used to be an old house which still retains its character and charm. Jocelyn, the resident innkeeper, made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good and attention was paid to every detail. It is very... More

We stayed at Hillhurst for 4 nights while in Charlottetown and we're delighted with the accommodations and breakfast. The Inn is located a couple of blocks from the historical town center and an easy reach to the waterfront. The rooms are quite comfortable and nicely appointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They had good recommendations for restaurants and... More

The staff at Hillhurst could not be nicer! They are very friendly and pay attention to details. The breakfasts were great and the room was wonderful. It was the perfect base from which to explore the entire island. It's in a quiet, residential part of town but in walking distance to everything. I definitely will stay here again when traveling...

This is a very special Inn. It was purchased by the new owners just last year and they are continually making improvements to meet the needs of their guests. No two rooms in this former mansion are alike and they are all beautifully furnished. Jocelyn the Innkeeper is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, from making...

This B&B was highly recommended by friends who stayed here last year. Since then it has been sold and the new owners are in the process of renovating. Rooms are still lovely. Would wait a few months while things settle down. Jocelyn the Innkeeper is most accommodating

We so enjoyed our stay at the Hillhurst Inn. Beautiful old Inn, quiet and quaint, with big comfy bed and upgrades like a large jacuzzi tub in the room. It is filled with beautiful art and antiques. We had a delicious healthy breakfast; fresh fruit parfait, homemade quiche and lots of good coffee. It was hard to leave. Highly recommend.
