We stayed on the 3rd floor of this well kept old hotel. The hotel was actually pictured in one of the Anne of Green Gables series. It is very lovely, but the room that we had facing the ocean had major shower pressure issues. Scalding hot to ice cold with no adjustment to handles and no warning! That was disappointing,... More

If you enjoy history and especially enjoy the feeling of being transported back in time then Dalvay By the Sea is a must-stay. It is a gorgeous hotel that rewards the curious with so many interesting details hidden everywhere. My wife loved the claw-foot bathtub. We both loved the proximity to the beach (right across the street). Its unique location... More

From the moment we saw the gorgeous property from the road to the moment we enjoyed our last dinner in the restaurant this evening, it has been amazing and so perfect! The staff has welcomed us as if we came to their home. The service was excellent in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and the food was outstanding! Our... More

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Dalvay, a mini weekend getaway I booked late in August. We couldn't have been luckier with weather, sunny with temperatures in the 30C range - spectacular weather for mid-September on PEI. This lent itself wonderfully to iced tea on the veranda in the afternoon, just taking in the view. There are... More

I recently attended a wedding that was hosted at this particular hotel, the staff and the food was delicious. Appetizers and champagne were served on the gorgeous veranda and the meal they catered was top notch! Joe and his staff did everything they could to make this unforgettable experience as special as the couple who got married that day!!

We stayed in one of the 3 Bedroom 2 bathroom cottages that front onto Lake Dalvay. Obviously these do not have have the charm of the 100 plus year old Inn but you get full use of the property and Inn if you stay in one of the cottages. Cottages are simple but very comfortable. There are 2 bedrooms on... More

We arrived on a rainy, windy day on our pedal bikes after a long, long ride! The moment we walked into the beautiful foyer with its large, wood fireplace we knew we had to stay! No disappointment here. A feeling of warmth, safety and beautiful decor which gave us the feeling of stepping back in time. Although there is electricity,... More

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful this property is! This is our fourth time visiting Dalvay By The Sea and it never disappoints! Last year and this....it just gets better and better. First let me tell you it was wonderful to see some of the staff returning this year, in particular Mr. MacLean, the General Manager. Unfortunately there... More

Has all the charm that a plus 100 year old place would have - rooms are small, but very manageable. Food in their restaurant was exceptional, especially the blueberry waffles with ice cream for breakfast.

My husband and I just returned from a vacation to Prince Edward Island, and staying at Dalvay By The Sea was the highlight of the trip. We had a beautiful room with a view of the Gulf.
