We stayed for five nights at this gorgeous old mansion and loved everything about it. Our room was huge and full of treasures, the whole house was actually. The breakfasts were so good - lots of fresh fruit, several choices each day, home-baked goodies that changed daily. Doris was a wonder, somehow managing to do everything for everyone and still...

Interesting contradiction between the old brick mansion and the new condo modern style suites on the same property. Clean but a little cluttered in the halls and stairwells. Great location just far enough off the busy street to be quiet. Neat little garden with a sitting area around a fireplace heater. Breakfast served in the historic house was well done... More

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
