Stayed four nights here and was very pleased with room, service, and staff. We had asked for first floor and did get a room that had two entrances. This was very convenient as the back door had a little sitting area. This also helped for convenience of getting our baggage in and out of Hotel. Breakfast was ideal, and the... More

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...

His calm demeanour and ability to sleuth things out allow him to be successful in solving things just like this. James is certainly an asset to the Hotel and we are lucky to have him on... More

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...
