My colleague and I stayed here for business. Doris was so great, so welcoming, friendly, and such a great sense of humor. It really made our trip. Just when we thought we were saying goodbye, our flight was cancelled and we were back for another great night at the Fairholm Inn. Had another restful sleep, excellent breakfast and great chat...

I stayed there for two days.(19 Jan-20 Jan) It was cozy and beautiful. Especially, My family has enjoyed delicious breakfast because the owner prepared various & warm dishes for us. Her cookies was good. She is good at cooking and super mom. I appreciate her kindness.

My husband and I went on a romantic night out (doesn't happen often!) and been to this hotel a couple years ago and had a lovely stay. I reserved the same room hoping for the same cozy, romantic atmosphere. We got there that evening to find a note on the desk directing us to a room that was NOT the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in late July. We stayed in the de Havilland room in main inn. One of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. The whole house was quite amazing.

David, thank you for taking time to review us, we appreciate all of your kind comments. The Haviland certainly is a great room, it was actually named after Thomas Heath Haviland, one of the Fathers of Confederation who used to live in the building.

I was in the Clark House behind the Inn. The room was a very nice, spacious, suite style room, very clean and comfortable. There was free WiFi. I also enjoyed the breakfast they served each morning.

I stayed for 5 days in Oct/14 in the Fairholm Historic Inn and loved it. The inn is nearly 200 years old and quite amazing. Rooms were extremely large and comfortable, breakfast options were very hard to choose from and the staff was very helpful. I was attending a conference and the Inn was a 5 minute walk (at most)...

The Fairholm is an intimate historic inn with lovely rooms. But out back is a new building, the Clark House fitted up with what they call, with all the guileless charm that is the hallmark of this beautiful province, suites. Folks, we from Ontario refer to this sort of accommodation as a condo, and in Toronto we would pay about... More

We had booked accommodations in Charlottetown, which fell through due to difficulties at the facility. So here we were suddenly with no place to stay late afternoon. Checking online, we saw the listing for the Fairholm. It was our lucky day. What a lovely property and welcoming staff. We stayed in the Clark House in a two room suite. We... More

We stayed in one of the new Clark House apartments. Very nice, brand new, exceeded our expectations. Two huge modern bathrooms, the murphy bed in the living room was very comfortable for our daughter. The staff was great too. Recommended if you want to stay right in Charlottetown.

Everything about this Inn is top notch with one exception. The breakfast is wonderful (experienced the first morning of our stay) but we were not told that it ends SHARPLY at 10AM (we actually arrived in the breakfast room at 9:55am the next day)-This was unexpected on a Sunday morning and a less than positive ending to an otherwise great...
