Stayed here for two nights. Rooms were comfortable. There is no restaurant for dinner however a complimentary breakfast is served in the small dining room. We were offered complimentary coffee and cookies/cake in the afternoon and wine/beer is served early evening. The hotel is convenient for shops and other restaurants and only short walk to the waterfront. Great little hotel... More

The hotel could not have been more perfectly located near shopping, restaurants and bars, not to mention a short walk from the waterfront. The hotel was clearly renovated recently and looks great.

I recently stayed for a night at the Hotel on Pownal and was very pleased with the room and amenities. It is in the heart of the Downtown but in a very quiet location. Service was wonderful. Definitely recommend for a weekend that you want to get out and enjoy Charlottetown.
