The bed and breakfast is very accommodating and has everything you need. Great breakfast which is included and the location is great. Walking distance to...

My husband and I spent two nights at the beginning of October in this lovely old home. The staff are helpful and friendly offering ideas of what to see and where to eat while in Charlottetown. We booked in one night but the comfort of the room and closeness to the city centre made it too good to leave so...

Enjoyed our stay - good accommodations and convenient location for easy walking to shops and restaurants. Simple Continental breakfast offered. Surprised that we had to especially request DeCaf Coffee , given how many drink only decaf now.

Thank you for choosing us for your stay on the island! Our continental breakfast is indeed a simple one, though we do aim to provide home made pastries and quiche. We have made a change for the upcoming season so that decaf coffee will be made as readily available as the caffeinated version, and we apologize for any inconvenience we...

I stayed here for 3 nights in late September. The inn is centrally located--just a few blocks from the center of downtown in one direction and Victoria Park in the other--but also in a quiet residential area. It strikes the perfect balance between being easily accessible and in the center of things without being TOO in the center of things....

We are so glad we were able to provide you with a safe and pleasant stay!

We visited for two days at the end of Sept. This inn, located in the heart of the city, was a great value given the expense of staying in Charlottetown . Located among many beautiful heritage homes, this home is close to Victoria park and the water. It is a five minute walk to the heart of down town. The...
