Wonderful place to stay if you are exploring Charlottetown, it is in a quite tree lined road but only 5 minutes from the bustling waterfront, very comfortable rooms with a super breakfast, Trevor and Judy lovely hosts.

Trevor and Judy were a wonder--they guided us to the best hidden gem of a seafood place, told us where to find the best local beer, and were absolutely perfect hosts. I would not hesitate a second to recommend them to anyone I know going to PEI.

We were welcomed right away by one of the owners, Trevor. He explained everything to us about the Inn, restaurants in the area. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Attention to detail was great. we enjoyed a cup of tea, and lemonade as we arrived with a sweet treat, hit the spot. Would return for sure.

The Shipwright Inn turned out to be a highlight of our honeymoon. The owners Trevor and Judy Pye accommodated our very late arrival with an alternate way to register and everything after that was designed for comfort and convenience. The interior was impeccable with classic nautical decor; breakfast was delicious and the bed was comfortable! We have only accolades for...

Wow best describes this B & B located near Charlottetown. Incredible room and staff. Large spotlessly clean room done up to perfection from the past. Charming, quiet with a great location to local shopping, pubs and restaurants. I think this was my favorite place of all time to stay in.

The stay at the Shipwright was excellent, as soon as we booked it we had multiple emails along the way with confirmation straight from the owners, along with confirming when we were coming, just like visiting family. When we got there we were given a tour and told about local restaurants where we could eat that night. The room was...

Three days on the island and the Shipwright Inn was the perfect place to stay. Trevor and Judy obviously take great pride in the way they run the Inn, perfection in the details. Close to downtown,but on a quite street. Breakfast was different and unique each day. I would recommend it to anyone and if I return to PEI I...

My wife and I just spent 3 wonderful days on PEI. The Shipwright Inn is an excellent home base from which to experience the island. It is located on a quiet street near the center of Charlottetown within easy walking distance of shopping, numerous eateries, historic sites, the waterfront and the theater. It is a very well managed and comfortable...

We loved the Shipwright Inn. Trevor and Judy are terrific at making sure every little detail is attended to and guests are made to feel welcome. An easy walk about town, the location is perfect on a secluded residential street. But it's just 3 blocks from Victoria Street and wonderful restaurants as well as an easy stroll about the wharf...
