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. Breakfast was excellent wit some variety from day to day and the hosts very friendly. The Fairholm is very well located and we could walk to... More

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. The food was fresh and delicous, with healthy options.The staff was very friendly and welcoming. And the Inn is near the downtown and the... More

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...

This is by far one of the best B&B in which I have stayed. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The accommodations give a flavor and history of Charlottetown. The location grants walking access to all of the downtown sites and restaurants. Don't pass it by...you will be missing something special

Stayed for two nights, my wife and I - her sister and husband who are from Vancouver. all of us approx 60. He wanted an authentic historical setting, plus king bed, etc. We have done a lot of B & B's in Maine over the years so less of an issue for us. I called about a month ahead and... More

Jeff, Thank you for taking the time to write such a full review of the inn. It's great that your group got to experience both our new Clark House suites as well as our historic inn. The restoration book is a guest favourite as everyone finds the changes that were made to be very interesting. If you're ever in the... More
