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

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

The outside and grounds are very nice. Beautiful communal rooms inside the hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. However, location seems to be the key point for this hotel. We stayed in the Cozy Queen which was $199/night plus tax. The room was very cramped with a recycling bin and a full standing fan. The bathroom shower/tub was some sort... More

staying with a friend in her cottage near charlottetown, we didn't stay at the dalvay, but absolutely had to go see it. the dalvay is out on the beach, a nice long drive out of town. it feels like another time and a place far removed. if it weren't for the photo album of the royals' visit, i would have...

Customer service typically helps create an impression of a place. When we drove up the Dalvay by the Sea, we were impressed by the dramatic setting and the architecture of the building. When we finally lugged our bags into the lobby and checked it, no one offered to help us with our four bags to our room on the second... More

We’ve been to the Dalvay for the 20th year now. As one can imagine, we have seen ups and downs. There was a change in management in 2011/2012. Finally, everything has changed to near perfect. Was it the best stay in 20 years? Possibly. The hotel is managed in a very professional way, without losing the personal touch we all... More

My husband and I recently spent a week on PEI. We opted to spread our accommodations out over three properties so as to get a real feel for this beautiful island. We arrived at Dalvay on day #3. Mind you I had worked out our accommodations just the week before by phone only to arrive and find what I had... More

I cannot begin to explain how disappointing this place was. It was supposed to be the crown jewel of our trip to PEI but it was awful. We drove in from Charlottetown and had booked a King Suite (their most expensive option besides a cottage) about 3-4 months ago. I was traveling with my partner and since we had a... More

Recently stayed at Dalvay for one night. It was super expensive, but sounded like a really cool historic hotel, so I thought I'd splurge a little. Ultimately, based on the price, I had pictured accommodations that were a little more upscale than they actually were. I think the reviewer who described it as "more quaint than high end" got it...
