3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed two nights over a weekend here in September. The staff were very helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable. However, our room was quite small (No 135) with a single double bed and the view from the window was very poor. We looked out onto a semi derelict rear garden of properties approx. 30 feet away. In fact... More

The hotel is on a quiet street in a safe neighborhood, yet only a few blocks from restaurants, nightlife, theaters and the historic district. (We had rooms on the second floor for extra quiet.) The hotel is atractive and well maintained. Our room was comfortable and had plenty of space. During our two night stay, a variety of desk staff... More

We stayed at Hotel on Pownal to be close to the Charlottetown waterfront. We were surprised at it's understated elegance . All the amenities including Avida bath products . Just a 10 minute walk to the action on the boardwalk. Continental breakfast was easily the best I've had in such a small establishment. It's billed a a "boutique" hotel and... More

We picked this property based on online reviews and were not disappointed! Like other reviewers, the only criticism we had was that the air conditioner was so loud at night. We were able to reset it to make it less noisy, but it was never quiet. Our room was trim and tidy and very very comfortable, especially as we were... More

A perfect visit until checkout time ... it then turned bad through my own fault; My preferred place to stay in Charlottetown was reinforced once again by the exceptional service I received during my recent stay; after mistakenly locking my car key in the trunk as I was checking out, and attempts at getting assistance from CAA I was rescued...

We thought our eldest son would be going with us so we booked the family room which is basically two joined rooms (but only one bathroom) with a queen-sized bed in one room and two full-sized beds in the other (though, to us, there didn't seem much difference in size between all the beds and a king could easily have...

Can't speak highly of the service received by all staff. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Breakfast was amazing and fantastic choices, the attended to everyone's needs. The beds looked and were super comfy. Would totally recommend to stay there.

Hotel on Pownal is affiliated with the Great George and shares similar amenities plus the same excellent service attitude. We stayed there for the second two days of our Charlottetown visit after spending the first two at the Great George. The H.o.P. is more of a motor hotel property, the room was clean and comfortable, but I am sure room... More

Thank you for leaving feedback in regards to your recent stay with us on this site. Though the Hotel on Pownal follows the identical service and amenity offerings as our sister property, the Great George, our bricks and mortar are slightly different. I am happy to learn that you enjoyed your stay with both our wonderful properties. Thanks again and... More
