Step into a Victorian Inn at the turn of the 19"th century. Dalvay by the Sea is a charming hotel with beautiful grounds with authentic character. The restaurant is superb. Boat and bike rentals are available. The sand duned beach is right across the road. Don't forget to gaze at the stars in the evening unobstructed by any light pollution.

200-year-old hotel, specializing in interior is very delicate. I live just a room facing the sea, coupled with high-end furniture design house, a touch of luxury to me. The hotel restaurant's food and service are great.

We like to go to Dalvay every august for our wedding anniversary. We have accumulated many good memories here. Directly across the road from brackly beach, it is a wonderful experience. Enjoy the fireplace and the afternoon 2pm tea!

Staying at Dalvay by the Sea was an incredible experience. We spent 3 nights there in August and enjoyed every minute of it. There are a lot of different views and experiences to take in in and around Dalvay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed. Ours looked out towards the sea. I don't believe... More

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
