Arrived late afternoon for a much anticipated stay at this establishment, booked directly with them over 2 months previously. They had all our details, and we had a reservation confirmation number, but NO ROOM at the INN. Their response to rectifying the situation was unsatisfactory and unprofessional. The manager did not introduce himself, was insincere in his apology and little... More

We had a great time at this hotel! What impressed me the most about this Inn was the Inn Keeper.... she is a machine. From dusk to dawn she was always around doing something. She literally lives in the building and devotes her days to the Inn. Now that's an employee any employee would want to have, she deserves a... More

we are booking our PEI trip last minute and I was making calls late this evening for a date 3 weeks from now; the gentleman I spoke to on the phone tried to accommodate us, but it didn't work out. However, he then took the time to think about where else we might stay, made some recommendations for places that... More

This is a beautiful old house that has been turned into a bed & breakfast, they treat u like royalty. They have done an awesome job keeping the house looking regal as it was in its heyday. We were there for only 4 days but it was like we had the place to ourselves, we never heard the downtown traffic... More

For those who like historic homes, you will LOVE this B&B in a beautiful,190 year old historic home. Located only 5 minutes walk from the heart of Charlottetown, this hotel is situated in a beautiful garden with mature trees, flowers and a lovely patio area. We had the King Suite with Jacuzzi tub and it was well worth the price,... More

Carolyn, Thanks for taking the time to write us such a glowing review! The Brecken might be my favourite room inside Fairholm, I take every opportunity I get to spend the night up there. Hopefully you will come back to check out a different room next time you are in the area! Thanks again. Ben MacMillan General Manager More

We rented one of the apartment spaces for a few nights near the end of our week vacation, and it was magical. (A little expensive, but still magical!) The price isn't unwarranted in the slightest. The furniture is very modern and design-y. (We have a lot of the same pieces at our place!) Two TVs with cable. A great faux... More

Great inn with friendly staff, delicious breakfast, and beautiful rooms. A short walk from some of the attractions in downtown Charlottetown, this is a must stay for travellers wanting a rustic feel to their holiday. Great for a romantic couples getaway

We spent a week at the Fairholm Inn. Our room was spacious, comfortably furnished, and very quiet. The inn building is historic with much attractive decor. Breakfast was great and is served in a lovely dining room. The location is ideal, easy walking distance to all the sites in Charolottetown. The staff is wonderful; like other reviewers, we would particularly... More
