“Couldn't have made this stay any better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

The Shipwright Inn was amazing. My husband and I stayed for our 10 year anniversary and got the romance package. Our room was very romantic and we definitely felt spoiled. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. This bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations. We knew it would be good, but not as great as it was. We were sad to leave.

The inn was within a very easy walking distance of the downtown and harbor attractions in Charlottetown, Banking, gas, pharmacy, all essential needs were close by. I didn't need to rent a car until later in the week when I went on the coastal drives. Judy and Trevor take exceptional care of their guests. The breakfasts are awesome, a lovely jumpstart for the tourist's busy day. Internet, fax and copy services are available. Judy and Trevor are knowledgeable about the area and will make recommendations to supplement the most well planned of itineraries. They are so personable, and make their home feel like your own!

Room Tip: The Chart Room had a fireplace.

Everything about this Inn is great- location, hospitality, room amenities and food. Really appreciated the 'always' available tea/coffee and snacks' and the delightful and delicious full 4 course breakfast!! Everything in the Inn is true to the time period represented - such attention to detail is amazing. Very comfortable room with all amenities. Parking on site was much appreciated. Location is in the midst of downtown Charlottetown and close to walking on the historical waterfront!! Wonderfully friendly host and hostess!! Trying to think of a reason to return!!!

I am a frequent traveller, both for work and pleasure and The Shipwright Inn has become my home away from home. The Inn Keepers are always accommodating given my schedule, warm and welcoming and always ready with suggestions when I need them. The rooms are spacious, delightfully appointed with all the warmth and coziness one could ask for. Most amenities are in your room or if not just outside your door. And if that's not enough, the breakfast leaves nothing to want for and is always varied and delicious, YUM

Room Tip: All of them, each with own character

The Tiller Flat was very comfortable and great for self cooking and having friends and family come visit. Breakfasts were thoroughly enjoyable and Trevor and Judy were very helpful with advice as to sights and points of interest and directions.

We cannot possibly say enough good things about this lovely Inn. Our room - "The Quarterdeck" - was large, airy, spotless and beautifully furnished, with all mod cons, a private entrance and featured a large air-jet soaker tub in addition to a full en-suite bathroom. The owners, Trevor and Judy, were charming hosts, making us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The location is great - just a few steps from the centre of town and only a five or ten minutes from the waterfront. The breakfast was excellent, and complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and treats were always on hand - much appreciated after a bracing hike along the beaches on the North shore. Our only regret was that our stay here wasn't long enough!
