My husband and I just came back from an improtu mini vacation at the Pridwin Hotel and we had a really nice time. The hotel is super charming and cute and the staff was very friendly. We stayed in the main building, but the cottages looked adorable, kind of felt like being in Dirty Dancing. The location is just perfection... More

Stayed here mid-Jun. The hotel has a great view of the water. It is old, warm, and inviting. Not luxurious. Shelter Island is a secluded oasis near the Hamptons, and the Pridwin is probably the best hotel on the island. The continental breakfast is really a full American breakfast buffet.

If you're planning a wedding or large event you couldn't ask for better, we found the Pridwin to be very organized and easy to deal with. You'll love the leisurely bike rides around the island, the elegance of the beautiful old hotel and its huge porch overlooking the sound. The hotel has great food and a friendly staff plus there...

The Pridwin is not the most modern hotel on the island and the rooms are certainly cozy, but you can't beat it for the full Shelter Island experience. It has the longest history on the Island, it's family run with all the benefits of those who truly know the island, what to do, where to eat and where to go.... More

Stayed at Pridwin mid-June for an event and as always we had a great time with a great staff. The owners are lovely people, and kudos to them for keeping Pridwin going generation after generation. Lovely location on waterfront with adjacent beach.

We visited the Pridwin in late May, admittedly before the season starts on Long Island and despite the steep room charge, felt as though we should apologize for being there. The staff (with the exception of one person, a bellman) seemed more interested in getting ready for their next event than in our comfort or enjoyment. In addition, the website... More

Thank you for taking the time to give feedback on our hotel. Firstly I would like to apologize that you did not enjoy your stay at The Pridwin Hotel. During our pre-season we do have a lot of events, but our pool is open, unfortunately our restaurant does not open until the end of June. Our office staff are trained... More

We stayed here last summer for a few days while exploring the east end. The staff were lovely, the setting is unbeatable and it has an old fashioned charm that many other hotels in the area lack. If you are looking for a cute place for a summer get away this is the spot

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
