Located in the nicest part of the city within an easy walk of the harbour, Victoria Park and the Lieutenant Governor's residence. Not far from entertainment and shopping. Very friendly staff and the most amazing breakfast buffet with lots of home-baked goodies, including gluten free items. From now on this will be my first choice of a place to stay...

I stayed here with my wife and in-laws. It was a great spot. It was a touch cold when we went so we pretty much had to drive around but everything was close by. It made our stay in Charlottetown worth it. Thanks!

A beautiful old inn near the Charlottetown waterfront. Room was nicely decorated, warm and clean. We were offered meringues and cookies on arrival and served a wonderful breakfast - Continental and cooked (breakfast casserole/no base quiche) very tasty.

I was a winter tenant for 5 months at The Sonata Inn. The staff are warm and generous and the house is a historical beauty. I felt very comfortable there. The rooms are large and I had quite enough space. The Hotel has an hundred year old piano to play, and a beautiful parlour where you can visit with friends....

We stayed in room 10 at the front of the Inn, which had a great view and very comfortable bed. The bath/shower had excellent water pressure. The living area was...

Like many tourists, my husband David and I came to PEI to find the 'Green Gables' house where Anne grew up. Cavendish was pretty much closed, so we stayed in Charlottown- which turned out to be a great decision. Sonata Inn is one amongst the many grand old houses, now transformed into a B&B. We loved everything about the place!...

Almost everything was excellent: space, confortability, cleanness, attention, distance from airport, etc. The only thing I would like to be improved is the level of noise that you can hear inside the room at night.

My husband and I stayed in The Sonata Inn over the winter months for 6 months. We are so glad we choose this boutique hotel. Our first impression of a very friendly manager became true of all the staff and it wasn't long before it became home. The rooms are spacious and clean. We were so happy with everything to...

And the whole island is awesome :) Prince Edward Island (PEI or P.E.I.; French: Île-du-Prince-Édouard) is a province of Canada consisting of the island of the same name, as well as several much smaller islands.
