We ended up booking the Inn solid for our wedding, we and our guests were very impressed by the quality of the rooms and the service we received. It was very elegantly decorated, and well kept. We would definitely recommend it!

We had a unplanned overnight trip to Charlottetown, after looking up a few places we ended up at the Fairholm. What a great find! The location is perfect, for a nice evening stroll downtown and back to the inn in no time. We love historical places, This place is done to perfection! All very tastefully decorated with authentic antiques. Everything... More

We stayed in November, we had a top floor experience! An attic with a ton of room, 2 tvs a super comfy bed, and a bathroom with a solo shower and a jacuzzi tub. Lots of towels, and daily tidying. The best was our breakfasts, 3-4 daily choices, fresh baking and fruit with granola daily. Great coffee and tea choices... More

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights. I can't say enough good things. It's a beautiful historic home and the rooms are so nice. The breakfast was delicious, you had a few choices such as omelettes or eggs, bacon hot coffee, muffins, bagels!

I spent 11 terrific days at the Fairholm Inn, arriving just as Gina and Brooke were decorating for Christmas. The tree was glorious in purple, green and gold and garlands draped the stairwell banister. The air smelt of cinnamon and clove and everything was spotless and serene.

me and my husband stayed here for 2 nights. We rented the Brecken suite, a whole floor to ourselves! It has a king size bed and a jacuzzi tub big enough for 2.

I've stayed here many times, my place to stay in Charlottetown, and I've enjoyed my time here like an upscale home, at the heart of it all in this cultural down home city. From Doris, the Innkeeper to Brooke the owner, the time in the Inn is professional, but fun, comfortable, upscale, but relaxed. Just enjoyable!
