This is a wonderful place to stay in the lovely town of Charlottetown. The property is within a long walk of town, but we found it easier to drive in closer. Our hosts were a delightful couple that provided a superb breakfast. Our room met our needs beautifully in this fully restored property. So what could be improved? Unlike the... More

Thank you for your comments. Most were very helpful and appreciated but I have to say I was surprised to read your comment to "needs attention to minor detail". We take great pride in the minor details and it shows through our return guests and our many wonderful reviews. I would like to address some of your concerns: * "long... More

Can only confirm what other reviewers have said. Randy and Stacey the owners go out of their way to make you welcome, the room is spotlessly clean and the breakfast brilliant - freshly made omlettes the morning we stopped. It's a 2 minute drive into the centre of town, or probably 15 minute plus walk. We drive as unfortunately raining... More

Wonderful stay at the Dawson House. Big smiles from Randy greeted us upon arrival. Roomy, clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. Breakfast was excellent. It felt like we were having breakfast with our family. Randy and Stacey gave great directions on what to see and do, where to go for dinner. Could not have been better.

Our time at Dawson House with Randy and Stacey had so many highlights. Their great orientation to the town, tips on where to go for xyz, the location so close to lovely Victoria Park, and great breakfast table conversations were all great bonuses over and above the clean and comfortable accommodation. We had so many delightful experiences in Charlottetown and... More

We came for a three day day conference and were made so comfortable that we stayed a week. The house is the historical home of two of PEI's premiers and is kept meticulously well by our hosts. Breakfast time provided a new treat on each day of the week. Our hosts were welcoming and made conversation interesting around the breakfast... More

We had a wonderful three nights at the Dawson House. Randy and Stacey are warm and friendly hosts and made sure we were comfortable and well cared-for. Our room was great and, from what we could see, on par with the others - well-appointed, impeccably clean and bright, just what one wants to see in a B & B. Nice... More

Great stay, great hosts, felt like a home away from home. I guess the only minor points were the lack of easy access to tea and coffee facilities in the rooms and no obvious iron. Truly minor and very easy to rectify. Had a very easy stay at this B&B, Stacey and Randy were great from start to finish and... More
