our extended family needed to come to the Island on short notice this past weekend. Serendipitously, none of the larger downtown hotels could accommodate us, but it turned out that the Fairholm had availability and we were able to "charter" the entire inn. The experience was wonderful - obviously it's a beautiful, historic inn in an ideal downtown setting, and... More

Our deepest thanks to Brooke and Gina for enabling our celebration of Mum's life to be more special than we could have ever asked or hoped. Being able to gather at Fairholm was a perfect gift. Thank you also to Bill for cooking an incredible meal that took us all back to Mum's wonderful Sunday dinners in our youth. We... More

Our stay at Fairholm was actually a while back, but I came across the Fairholm here on Tripadvisor and thought I would just voice how amazing our stay was! We drove from St. John`s NL to PEI on a road trip and the Fairholm was by far the best place we stayed. Our rooms were beautiful, and the service was... More

We had a fabulous time at the Fairholm Inn in Charlottetown. We stayed there 3 nights before starting a bicycling trip around PEI and then ended there for an additional night after finishing our bicycling. Rebecca and her staff, Nancy and Judi, were friendly, welcoming, helpful and nice. The Inn felt like our home. The rooms were spacious (ours had... More

We stayed in the Babe Rogers suite at the Fairholm Inn. The room was huge and very nicely furnished. You know when you visit those historic homes and they have the rooms roped off. Well, this was like stepping over the rope and spending the night in one of those rooms. The location couldn't have been better. Easy walking distance... More

We stayed at the inn in the Haviland Suite for 5 nights. The rooms here are typical of the era -- dark, large, plenty of storage for clothes, and in our suite, a very comfortable bed and an elegant bathroom with excellent shower and wonderful tub-Jacuzzi. The breakfasts were just wonderful, with a different selection each day, and our hosts... More

My husband and I stayed at the Fairholm Aug 29 - Sep 1, 2013. We loved the Inn - a beautifully restored Victorian Home. The decor is gorgeous, the antiques are exquisite, and all of the rooms I saw were well-appointed and cozy. Every morning there were blueberry muffins and cheese/bacon biscuits waiting with coffee and juice. We were always... More

The house is stunning, good location. Close to d Historic downtown. It is located across the road from salvation army and there are questinable people hanging around at all hours. I honestly felt a little uneasy walking there at night despite the reassurances that charlottetown is a safe place. We also had hard time locating the manager even though we... More

Our 5 night stay at the Fairholm was most comfortable. The staff was gracious and accomodating and the Inn is lovely. Free on-site parking, well situated in the historic part of the city so that you can walk everywhere, great individually prepared breakfasts, it doesn't get much better than this. They are building an outdoor pergola with a firepit so... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at The Fairholm at $259 per night. The location was very good and the old home attractive. The inn keeper was very nice and helpful although she wears too many hats. She was the cook, the server, the bed maker, the fixer of anything broken. Not a single phone in the house worked.... More
