We stayed here with our 3 kids for 2 nights and were so impressed with the Fairholm. The suite in the new section was so large and well appointed. The quality of the accommodations were well above what we had expected. The attentive service and travel advice that we received was first rate and so valuable. We were able to... More

We stayed for five nights for our honeymoon. Overall we were very happy with Fairholm!! Our room (Emslie) was fantastic. Clean, big, romantic, and unique. I just re-read all the reviews on here... And i am a little confused over all the comments on how "dark" this Inn is.... It is supposed to be dark. It is very true to... More

My mother and I stayed at Fairholm for a week during our visit to PEI. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The staff was friendly and accommodating, making sure we were comfortable and offering recommendations of local places to visit. The rooms were gorgeous! We woke up every morning to a home cooked, fresh breakfast. The... More

Hi, I recently stayed at the Clark House for five weeks while working at my organization's Charlottetown office. Clark House is a set of apartment-style accommodations, recently built behind the Fairholm Inn. Wow, wow, wow is all I have to say! Clark House is new, clean and contemporary, fully equipped for stays that are a big longer than your usual... More

The accommodations where suggested by the PEI tourist board after we crossed the bridge from New Brunswick. We arrived late and did not know what was waiting for us after a long drive (we are from Ontario). The accommodations where incredible, very clean, beautiful, spacious, and the keeper of the Inn made us feel right at home. I could actually... More

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our new Clark House expansion. We figured that having a washer/dryer in 2 of the units would be a convenient addition for guests who had some last minute laundry. Hopefully you will have an opportunity to stay with us for an extended stay in the future! Thank you... More

Doris is a superb Inn Keeper and sets a standard that has been unparalleled in our b&b experiences! Professional, exquisite decor and character set this Inn apart. It is in close proximity to the historic part of Charlottetown and it is pretty darn cool to tell your friends you stayed at a National Historic Site of Canada! Thank you Doris... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us. The cookies and fresh treats never seem to stop coming with Doris! Hopefully the two of you were able to take in some of the non-stop events going on in downtown Charlottetown this summer. We would love to have you back to stay with us if you come back to the island!... More

Arrived late evening after a day of driving around Nova Scotia. Pleasantly surprised by the Inn keeper, for whom a 9.30 pm arrival was no problem, and who happily helped make a dinner reservation. Very well kept with charming artifacts. The breakfast was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. It was a nice touch that staff (seemed to be)... More

Thanks for the review. It's great that you had the opportunity to roam around Charlottetown as 2014 is an especially big year here on the island! We find it very important to be as accommodating to our guests as possible, no matter the check in time. Hopefully you will return to PEI in the future and stay with us again!... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at this wonderful inn. We stayed in the loft which was not only charming but spacious and full of small thoughtful touches. The antique furniture and gracious rooms are a delight throughout but the warmth and helpfulness of all the staff made it really special.

The Fairholm Inn is a very special place! Amazing history and architecture, very accommodating, and super dog friendly. We brought our Poodle x and he had full run of the house and yard. Everyone was so inviting and we had a wonderful stay. Great food and location! Highly recommended... you will love your stay here! Also... there's a ghost!
