We have been to this lovely, quaint resort several times for their famous Dalvay Pudding dessert and love it. On our last trip, we had time to stay for lunch and it was well worth it. The lodge is an elegant, restored Queen Anne Revival home and a National Historic site in Canada. Dining seating is in a large room,... More

After accidentally learning the Stanhope where we had reservations on the north shore of PEI had burnt to the ground, we were able to arrange accommodations at the Dalvay. Absolutely a perfect stay for that first week of August 2013. Talk about luck. The lodging and the food was outstanding as was the staff. The restaurant manager even provided the... More

This was a very special place to stay in a wonderful location. The accommodation is marvelous with lovely log fires. The ambience of the building is fantastic provided by the lovely warm wood used in the construction. The food and wine were excellent and we were looked after like royalty. A special thank you to Jenna Shinn who really made... More

Unfortunately, we did not stay here, but it was one of our favorite places on Prince Edward Island. We stopped for lunch on our way to Cavendish; we had the steamed mussels. The hotel is near the beach, and the grounds are spacious and lush. The interior of the hotel is well appointed; I had my picture taken with Prince... More

We stayed two nights at Dalvay in a king room overlooking the lake and ocean. Our welcome on a cold and rainy day was warm and professional from Mitchell the front desk manager. The fireplaces were cozy and added to the ambience. Ian our sommelier made our wine choice easy. Dinner was pleasant. Both nights I had the lobster salad.... More

Dalavay-by-the-sea is the perfect place to disconnect from the hectic world. Everything is in grand style. The rooms are beautiful and all the common areas as well.. Although the rooms do not have TV, telephone or clock it is perfect to relax. The food is excellent. Some waiters/waitgresses should have some more training.

We stayed here for two nights having driven by last year and decided we would love to come back because of the location. The setting is indeed stunning and this majestic property, with an interesting history, sits amidst well tended grounds by Dalvay Lake. We received a friendly welcome and were impressed with the comfortable reception areas downstairs. Our room... More

Welcoming ambiance and pleasant staff. Great location for beaches- a simple walk down the lane and our room overlooked the lake. Fires roaring in all the fireplaces kept the cooler evenings at bay. Dinner was good but the staff lacked experience and training for the reputation and expense of the meal. Lobster omelette for breakfast was worth the splurge. Would... More

My husband and I had an amazing evening at Dalvay by the Sea. We arrived late to the resort after a picturesque 70 minute ferry ride from Pictou , NS to PEI. On arrival, we were welcomed by the front desk and shown to our lovely room on the second floor. As we walked past the large wood burning fireplace... More
