The accommodations were excellent, but Doris makes the stay! We were warmly greeted and informed of the local highlights. After a fabulous breakfast (I'm a sucker for freshly baked blueberry muffins) we shared our plans with Doris and she mentioned a charity concert (Peter Chaisson tribute held at Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival site) we might check out. Well as luck... More

Me and my fiancee stayed in the Brecken Suite while we toured around PEI for a few days. The suite had a king bed, a 2-person jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, and a great view! Who could ask for more? It was super cozy, and always a treat to come back to and relax after a day of exploring. Ben and... More

We enjoyed a one night stay in the Clark House, and wished we could stay longer. We were in the Bernard Suite, very spacious with a huge king bed, and a Murphy bed in the living area. The kitchen was great, modern with all the necessary appliances, the decor is really modern, it is a great apartment. There is a... More

The staff was very accommodating upon our early arrival. The location in the city is great for walking to experience the city. The main house where we stayed was a grand old lady. The furnishings and décor are true to the age of the house. Lovely. the staff were friendly and fun. They were very helpful in giving tips on... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this hotel during our recent visit to PEI. We had one of the suites in the carriage house at the rear of the property. The suite was large and handsomely appointed and appeared to have been very recently renovated/decorated. It was a very comfortable place for us to stay. The property consists... More

Our Carriage House was just completed last June so you are correct about the new renovations.

Besides being a beautiful, fully restored historic inn, the people at the Fairholm were helpful in every way. We felt right at home even though we arrived very late in the evening. We planned on one night and winded up staying 3 nights because we didn't want to leave. The location is perfect for getting around the island and for... More

We were very pleasantly surprised as to how nice this hotel was. The rooms were modern, clean, spacious. The bathroom shower is worth mentioning, was refreshing. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. We walked over to downtown and had a nice dinner and a musical (Anne and Gilbert). We were pleasantly surprised to find a pizza place using fresh... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us! Anne and Gilbert is an amazing show so it is great to hear that you were able to fit that in to your stay on the island. There are a number of outstanding little pizza joints around the corner and it sounds like you found one of them! Ben... More

From the moment we walked into the Fairholm, we felt instantly at home. Our room in the main house was huge, elegant and comfortable; our friends who stayed in the newer accommodations out back also loved their sleeker, more modern quarters. We relaxed with books in the upstairs sitting room and played Scrabble on the board provided. And we couldn't... More

Susan, Thanks for writing a review on your stay, we love getting feedback from our guests. Our rooms in Fairholm and the Carriage House are two very different styles so it is nice that you had the opportunity to experience both! Breakfast has been a real hit since we decided to include additional choices. I will be sure to pass... More

A magnificent Inn. Well maintained, amazing staff and owner. If you want to feel at home in Charlottetown, PEI this is the place for you. a short walk to downtown and the waterfront.
