Booked a one night stay for September 14th on August 10th through the inn’s web site and received my confirmation. Arrived at the inn at 3:50pm to check in and found no one there and one car parked in the back corner of the lot. The grounds were overgrown and unkept and all exterior doors to the building were locked. Two doors identified with a sign as 1 @ 2 both had the same sign which provided instructions for new arrivals. Instructions directed you to press the call button on the call box and or use the phone hanging on the wall and press “0” for assistance. Both these were fine several times over several minutes with no response. Also listed was a local phone number to call in case of an emergency. That number was out if service. I call the local number listed on the inn’s web site and received a voice mail message in a females voice. It wasn’t possible to leave a message as the mail box would not accept messages. I then called the toll free number listed on the Inn’s web site. The call wouldn’t go through and all I could hear was static. I knocked on all the doors several times with receiving no answer. I then emailed the inn explaining that I was there to check in and asked for someone to respond ASAP to provide assistance. 16 hours later, I have yet to receive a reply. I was fortunate to find other accommodations for the night. Be very cautious about booking online and expecting to stay here even though you have received confirmation. If it was possible, I would have rated it as a “0”. I would never recommend the Shipwright to anyone.

A wonderful stay. Far exceeded our expectations. From the friendliness to the cleanliness. Wonderful staff. We stayed in the Officers Wardroom and loved it. Close to harbour. Perfect for walking to any number of restaurants and shops. Jason even packed us a breakfast to go because we had to leave early on our last day!

We stay in a lot of B&Bs and small inns. This one had some of the largest rooms we have experienced with large baths also. The location is very convenient also. The only negative would be the breakfasts which were quirky to say the least. One morning it was called a breakfast bowl.. Lots of fruit and a poached egg served over quinoa. we like quinoa in soups etc but this was a little weird.

We stayed at the Shipwright Inn for the first half of our PEI trip, and it was such a good choice. Our room was clean and comfortable. We loved having a fridge and coffeemaker in the room. The food, service, and our entire experience were wonderful. Jason and his staff have created a restful, beautiful place from which to enjoy Charlottetown and the surrounding area.

We stayed for two nights last week in the Quarterdeck Room on the main floor. The room was very comfortable and spacious and well equipped with coffee maker, small fridge and two comfortable wing chairs for reading (something that many B and B's neglect offering). The Inn has recently changed hands and we found the new owner to be charming and very helpful. Breakfast was not to our taste. The cook was experimenting, we think, with Chinese type breakfast offerings and we were not warned or we would have had the fruit and ceral offered in the common room. The first offering was a type of steak wrap on a naan bread plus a small bowl of wonton soup. The soup was great but the naan was tough and inedible and the filling just okay. The second day we had a rice bowl with pork (Congee I believe) which was not something we were prepared for at breakfast. I thought it was okay but not to my husband's taste. Served with a very tasty roll. Think the breakfast offerings will be adapted to North American taste and this will help maintain the 5 star rating. Breakfasts are often the highlight of small inns and b and b's. Jason wants to please so am sure this will be done!
