We popped in for lunch ' and sat looking out over towards North Fork. Lovely position on a large terrace.the level of service was very amateur with vacation students wandering around fairly clueless. But not to worry we had a very good prawn Caesar salad with lovely plump prawns and a well prepared salad. Weird stewed coffee ( sent back... More

Front desk most helpful as upon arrival we realized I could not manage 2 flights of stairs w/broken foot. Fast thinking gal did some fancy footwork of her own and arranged a first floor room. It was a relaxed party atmosphere from the get-go! Breakfast provided was a marvelous brunch including "crepes", on the large front porch overlooking the beach... More

Shelter Island offers beautiful scenery in a more laid back setting which is what prompted us to go with the Pridwin. Being temporarily disabled and after months of being couped up I wanted a getaway that was beautiful and handicap accessible. We were able to park on level spot right behind hotel (Handicapped spot) so there was no stress getting... More

The hotel is very old and very noisy. Heard people walking & talking in the room above us, when people walked past our room, it rattled. The bed was uncomfortable, we both woke up with stiff backs. Our room was at the back of the hotel so we heard them bringing out the garbage & recycling bins. The pool was... More

We stay here every summer because there is so much to do. There is a boat dock, if you come by water, water sports available to rent, gorgeous pool, friendly staff, and fabulous, free breakfast. We were lucky enough to stay during a weekend when the Pridwin was hosting a BBQ...it was so delicious and again, the setting could not... More

We stayed at the Pridwin for our anniversary in June. Tom greeted us and knew all about the island and the hotel. James and Edith at the front desk were so helpful! The views from the restaurant and the pool were gorgeous, We enjoyed excellent selections of local wines as well as delicious sangria from the bar and mouth watering... More

The location of this hotel couldn't be better. Beautiful views no matter where you are. The rooms however are very small and could use some modern amenities. Stayed in the corner room and it was extremely small. Although the bathroom looked recently updated and had a fabulous shower. Pool area is nice with lunch side service although definitely not luxurious.... More

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.
