Stayed at Pridwin for 4 nights. Restaurant was very good with a spectacular view. Rooms are very small and ok if you are a minimalist. No elevators and narrow stairs. The place needs a refresh to command the asking price.

We were attending a wedding and this was the hotel where most of the guests were staying. The Pridwin opened in 1927 and it shows. It is a beautiful location with incredible views of the water. The establishment, however, is showing its age. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are even smaller. Our shower head came apart the first... More

We stayed here during off season (end of September) with a Living Social deal. We booked 2 nights and we were not disappointed with the hotel at all. The hotel is very nice; clean, nice comfy bed, beautiful grounds and the staff is polite and very helpful. The Living Social deal came with an hour rental of bikes or kayak.... More

The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. The views are stunning. The rooms at Pridwin are showing their age. And they are very small. Bathroom was updated but again very small. Really no place in room to sit and enjoy the view. I haven't seen a TV that small or old in years. The noise from the bathroom plumbing... More

PridwinOffice, Manager at The Pridwin Hotel, responded to this review

We very much appreciate you taking your time to review the Pridwin Hotel. Indeed, many of our rooms are small. When the hotel was built in the 1920s, it was designed for shared baths and rooms that were still considered small by today's standards. When we renovated for private baths, some of that space was lost as well, but we... More

This is a quaint old hotel with spectacular views of the bay! The rooms were small but clean with a very comfortable bed and bedding. Such a treat to lie in bed gazing out on the water! Towels were small and thin but the bathroom was otherwise well stocked with amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was... More

First of all, we went after Labor Day. No food served except for a horrible breakfast buffet consisting of defrosted plain bagels and English muffins, some cut up fresh fruit, yogurt and cold cereal......of course there was fresh oj and tea/coffee..........The place has been in business since 1928 and there were plenty of items that were still being used from...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Pridwin Hotel, although we are sorry that your stay was unsatisfying. The post-Labor Day shift is fairly dramatic as Shelter Island goes quickly into the off-season. The Pridwin too goes quickly into off-season, our full buffet breakfast transitions to a continental breakfast after Labor Day, though we typically still include our... More

Here on September 9, 2014. Here on the upper deck watching the sun go down. Could not find a better spot to watch the sun go down except maybe for Aruba. Very quiet here. I may be the only guest here this time of year. The hotel itself is very nice. It must be crazy here during the summer. The... More

Nice hotel, great location. Staff is very nice and helpful - most of them from the UK in the country for the summer season. A family property, you would feel like your are living in the 50s. Rooms are small but clean. Great view from the restaurant and front lawn.

This is a quietly elegant hotel, retrofitted from times when people were smaller. The bathrooms are minuscule (but nicely done).The guest rooms are attractive, but they should certainly have two night tables! The Pridwin has a lovely private beach and a marvelous restaurant--you'll love both, if you can find the hotel. You see, there are two Shore Roads on Shelter... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. We have taken your comments on board and appreciate your honesty! We are aware with the problems with GPS on the island, unfortunately we have two Shore Roads on the Island, and some GPS companies send our guests to the wrong one. We apologize that you were not informed of the lack... More

There's a message on the notice board at the Pridwin that reads "It's nice to be important but more important to be nice" if this chimes a note with you then you will hopefully love it here. If not then you should stay at Sunset beach down the road, that's packed to the rafters with the important. The Pridwin on... More
