Being a history buff, the Dalvay is a dream spot to stay at. The history of the establishment, the beautiful setting, and the food made for one of the loveliest visits. The absence of a TV and phone in the room was refreshing. The warm fireplace and quiet spots to sit and read made for a great few days of... More

Tired of rushing! Tired of technology...phones and tvs. Want to relax. This is the place. Dalvay by the Sea is a part of PEI's National Parks. In fact, it reminded me of the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, a place that we spent our honeymoon. Fall pumpkins greeted us at the door. Inside was dark wood, fire roaring, leading... More

We recently stayed at Dalvay by the Sea and had a lovely visit. The food was outstanding (and we are foodies)! The room and the view were stunning. And customer service was very warm and welcoming! We would definitely stay there again if traveling to PEI.

Dalvay visually is stunning. The beautiful beach area that runs for miles and miles along a stretch of Parks Canada road that winds its way along the dunes and salt water marshes. Suddenly appears, Dalvay in all its splendid past, looming up beside a lake with a large expanse of lawn. Stepping inside the grand old building is like walking... More

....but the hotel is mediocre at best. Dalvay does have its charms.... nice grounds, wood burning fireplace in the main lobby, lots of history, killer cookies at the front desk. But it is slightly tired. Historic shouldn't be a reason for lacking in amenities. Our bathroom was small enough you almost needed to back into it, the fixtures would be... More

We stayed at Dalvay for 3 nights in mid-September. It was memorable. The inn is historic and elegant. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. There was always a fire burning in the 3 massive fireplaces in the various lounges. The site is so beautiful it is tempting to just sit by the window and... More

Dalvay is a great escape from the technology filled world we live in. The beautiful setting includes many activities and easy access to the beach. Other reviews have discounted the lack of phones and TVs in the room, which I see as a plus. The building is protected historically! There are few places that exist where this is the case... More

Step back in time!! My partner and I stayed at Dalvay By The Sea in August and have not been able to get it out of my mind since! I normally don't write reviews, however when I read some of the other experiences there I decided to share mine. I really don't understand the past experiences which were post because... More

We are travelling with the doodle so we needed a place that accepted pets. Dogs are permitted in the Dalvay cottages. The cottage was lovely. Spacious and clean but we reserved a two bath cottage and they put us in a one bath cottage. No explanation at all for why the reservation wasn't honoured but we were not too impressed.... More
