The landscaping is very pretty, the deck where your dinner and breakfast be served has amazing views. Quite relaxing. The rooms are old, dated, pretty ugly to be honest. You are not getting worth for your money for these rooms. Cleaning is minimal, the rooms smells. The public areas, lobby, bar, are in much better shape. Be prepared to wait... More

Perfectly positioned overlooking Shelter Island's gentle bay, the Pridwin Hotel offers the real thing- small, but comfortable rooms with beautiful views, friendly, relaxed service, affordable pricing, absolutely delicious complimentary buffet breakfast, and pretty grounds which include a large swimming pool. If you are expecting Four Seasons luxury or Sunset Beach chic style and scene- you will be disappointed. If you... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pridwin Hotel from 6/25-6/26/14. We purchased a great mid-week special from Living Social. The hotel was warm and inviting with a great staff and beautiful views of the beach. The room was small and dated but was very comfortable and had a lovely view of the water. Our lunch and dinner at the... More

My wife and I wished to get away for a couple of days. We purchased a Living Social voucher for the Pridwin on Shelter Island. We knew we were getting the great ambiance of Shelter Island, but I was unsure of the quality of our accomodations, especially when we had a discounted room reservation. We were qutie surprised when we... More

The Pridwin caught our eye because of a quite good Living social deal. Although I'd stayed at many places in both the North and South Forks, I'd never been to Shelter Island. The island is really very nice and low key - probably due to the fact that you have to take a ferry to get there. I think this... More

We stayed in a water view room, the staff was friendly, the view was beautiful as well as the Island itself, however the hotel clearly required upgrading. The room itself was very small, the curtains and chair had visible brown stains. The room really requires new paint and the hallways smelt like mold. The air conditioning was running but the... More

We want to thank you for staying with us and very much appreciate the feedback, though we are sad to read of your disappointment. When the Pridwin was built in the 1920s it originally had shared baths. To convent to private baths, some room size was lost. The rooms were never spacious by today's standards, and so this meant even... More

This is a lovely, family run resort, with lots of traditional charm, stunning views, beautiful surroundings and fabulous food. With that said, there are a few areas that with a little improvement, could make this an outstanding family resort, most notably, the service. We stayed for one night in room for four during a family reunion. The room was acceptable... More

The crew that runs this place were so accommodating. I was there for a wedding and they let us have our run of the place. Yes the rooms could use a bit of updating but that is part of the charm of this space.

.... at the Pridwin. We just spent two nights there over Columbus Day weekend and will definitely return again. Our room on the third floor was comfortable, clean, calm, and had a great view directly out to the water. Not fancy or luxurious, but certainly just fine.

Stayed there for a weekend wedding. The location is terrific, service and hospitality outstanding. The food was excellent, including the wedding reception. Quarters are cozy and personable. But the most outstanding characteristic is the helpful and friendly staff.
