There is something very wrong with customer service at this hotel. We wanted to stay here, but now--NOPE. I emailed this hotel saying that we wanted to visit in September, and asking which of their king rooms were the most private/quiet. I got a response from Jayden asking me to specify what dates in August (huh??) we were planning to come, and telling me to check the property map to see which rooms were connected/close together. This seemed very odd since it was the opposite of what I had asked. I sent an email clarifying (again) what we were looking for. This time I got no response at all. They turned me from a potential customer into a "no way" visitor. I don't know what's wrong with this place, but something certainly is.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to our TripAdvisor profile. We are very sorry that you ended up never staying at our great property. The Great George Hotel takes our guests' requests very seriously. We always reply in a timely manner and keep a record of our conversations so that they can be reviewed by our management team. Your profile does not show a name, but our IT department could not verify any records of the hotel having such an interaction with any potential guest. Your comments are very concerning to us considering the great reviews and customer service that we are so proud to provide. The matter has been raised with our General Manager and we would kindly ask you to send him an email with evidence of your conversation so that further action can be considered. Thank you.

We typically stay in chain hotels in order to collect points but were happy we picked this boutique option in downtown Charlottetown! Unique stay in a fully-renovated heritage building, clean room, quality Aveda shower amenities, friendly staff and a delicious, filling breakfast to fuel up for exploring the island I would definitely stay here again! Just beware if you have any mobility issues to contact the hotel in advance to arrange the accommodation since for our room we had to walk our luggage up a couple flights of stairs with no elevator.

Outstanding service! Great breakfast (overnight oats a huge hit). The Perkins House is a 2 story suite that was more than enough room. Immaculate inside with soft bath towels, very comfortable bedding and pillows...2 baths, modern kitchen, laundry and a deck!! Directly across the street from St Dunstan's Basilica and walking distance to Victoria Row, Grafton Street and the waterfront. Make this your #1 choice!

What a fantastic place! Not only is the house where the Confederation was created, but it is a series of houses next to each other. Each is different and lovely apartments have everything we needed. Rabab went out of her way at checkin, and the two breakfasts we had were very delicious. Centrally located,we walked to the Gahan and the Irish Pub, as well as the church across the street.

This hotel is a real gem ! The hotel is a based on many buildings that have all been renovated, maintaining the original charm, situated around a courtyard/car park and small garden. The staff are incredibly helpful and polite. On week days beer from the owner’s brewery is available at 5pm, the first one being complimentary, in addition at 3pm fresh baked cookies are available. The breakfast is served in a communal seating area, we found the breakfast to be ample and of good quality produce. The rooms are very comfortable, that said and our only negative comment would be that our first room had a very noisy air conditioning unit, the staff offered a different room immediately. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place to stay. We’ve stayed many times and never disappointed. Each time we stay we try to stay in a different area. Each stay is as good or better than the last! Clean, everyone is friendly and each spot so amazing! Breakfast is wonderful. Way to go!!

Great location for exploring Charlottetown. Classic old school well run hotel. All the bells and whistles of a first class property with much attention to detail. Staff are amazing - helpful, polite and well trained. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with all the necessary items you’d expect for this first class property. Highly recommend for your Charlottetown accommodations. Parking is tricky, it plentiful, just ask the front desk staff. Rooms in the main building facing the church can be a bit more noisy.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the Great George in Charlottetown, PEI, and our stay was, honestly, just fine. I was expecting a bit more luxury/amenities as they bill themselves as a luxury, boutique hotel, but it didn't quite get there for me. But, it was not without pros! PROS: The staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Whenever we did have issues, the front desk staff/management was quick to offer assistance. The bed in our room was VERY soft, and we requested a move to another room. The manager Ricardo showed us a different room, but we ultimately stayed where we were -- but he was very concerned with our comfort. The overnight oats with blueberries and blueberry syrup was a home run -- best part of the breakfast, hands down! The hotel is incredibly close to the harbor and Victoria Row/Queen Street bars and restaurants, which is a huge plus for us. The town itself is very walkable and the hotel is perfectly situated for this. CONS: Our room. I'd booked our stay back in the winter (a classic queen) and was hoping for something a bit better. We were in a ground floor corner room in the Wellington Building -- I didn't realize how spread out the rooms were amongst the historical buildings of the property, so would have requested something on a higher floor. There were no shades that we could close that would allow some sunlight to enter the room -- all that was there were blackout shades, and they had to be totally shut if we wanted any privacy. As a result, we had to keep the room dark the entire time we were in there. Tip to the hotel -- get some shades that allow some sunlight to come through and still provide privacy!! The A/C/dehumidifier in the room was also massive and took up precious floor space. It was also monstrously loud, and if we wanted any fresh air we had to have it on as we couldn't really open our windows (no screens). One morning, we did blow a fuse in our room (an old building but likely my fault; plugged the hair dryer into the outlet in the main room while the A/C was on) and when I called the front desk to report this, I was told that she'd text the maintenance team. Honestly, this did not inspire confidence that the issue would be fixed quickly -- simply tell me "we'll take care of it immediately". And, it did end up being almost 2 hours before power was restored to our room -- not a huge problem for us, but might be a bigger problem for others. A pain mostly, but the response from staff did not make me think it would be resolved quickly. It was VERY concerning that we returned to the room one afternoon and found that our room door had been left ajar by housekeeping. While we did appreciate the fresh towels that had been dropped off (especially having opted out of full-service housekeeping), it was alarming that housekeeping had not shut our room door upon finishing. I let the front desk know, so hopefully it doesn't happen to future guests. Overall, we probably would find other accommodations on future trips to Charlottetown, or be more specific in our lodging requests if staying here.

We visit Charlottetown every summer with our daughters and have always stayed at one of the hotels. This year my husband and I stayed at the Great George. The only available room was a king deluxe and it was plenty big! Nice seating area and modern bathroom. Fridge and Keurig coffee maker were nice. Aveda toiletries. Enjoyed the breakfast and the evening happy hour in the lobby. Nice to mingle with other guests. Everything in the Inn was spotless and well done. The clientele is older and while there were some children, I’d personally recommend it as a couples hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking is plentiful but it fills up and you may have to drive around. I enjoyed the laundry machines which were in a building next door. Would highly Recommend and we will stay again!
