I loved the Sonata Inn which had the perfect atmospheric cross between a B&B and a hotel. Our room was a great size, with two double beds, a sofa, good size built in wardrobe/storage and a clean but homely bathroom (my friend immediately ran the bath!). It was really cheap to do laundry there (I regretted spending a small fortune... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my few days at the Sonata Inn. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The whole place felt warm and inviting, with lots of books and DVDs for the guests to borrow. Delicious breakfast every day, with live guitar playing in the background. Easy walking distance to Downtown Charlottetown and the waterfront. The staff were very friendly, and... More

The Sonata is a great place to stay. It is one of the best B & B's we have ever stayed in. Our room was spacious and clean. It was also very quiet. The location is perfect for doing things in Charlottetown. One feature we appreciated was the free calls to phone numbers in USA. It allowed us to get... More

Thank you so much for your review! A little known "extra" is indeed the free long-distance calling available from each room, and we're so glad you were able to take advantage of that! Our location offers peace and quiet but minutes away is the heart of downtown. We look forward to your return! More

We stayed at the Sonata Inn for 4 nights, September 13-17, 2015. The staff were welcoming, creating homey atmosphere. The Inn is located within walking distance to downtown Charlottetown, a charming city of culture, arts, history, unique restaurants & shops. Rooms were spacious & clean, kitchen stocked with refreshments & baking treats by the front desk. The breakfast included cereal,... More

We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights and were very appreciative of the friendly helpful staff, comfortable atmosphere and wonderful location. Easy walks to downtown and around the harbour. It was an excellent "base camp" during our travels around PEI and will return in the future.

We loved this inn where we stayed for two nights with our 21 month old. Room was huge, bathroom spotless and kitchen for general use was great. We had a couple of bad nights whilst there with our baby and were embarrassed to have kept people awake. Staff and fellow guests were so kind and understanding. Would thoroughly recommend!

We stayed here for 3 nights and will definitely stay here again. It isn't quite a B&B in that it isn't someone's home with rooms to let. It is more private than that yet still maintains an intimate feeling. We seldom bumped into anyone other than at breakfast. It is a delightful little inn, with extremely friendly and helpful staff,... More
