Have been here several times while visiting family on the island. Have always had great meals and service. Love the clam chowder. The ambiance is warm, cozy and classic. Look forward to returning in the near future.
The Dundee Arms Inn is a delightful boutique hotel in old Charlottetown. They also have an excellent restaurant where you are pampered and the atmosphere is relaxing. The food very good, today I had Eggs Benedict with Lobster! Wow! what a great treat it was. Everything comes well presented, tables have white table cloth, plates are hot when put in front of you. Attention to details and excellent quality for value. Highly recommend this civilized hotel.
My SO and I spent two lovely nights in one of the suites here at the inn. We both live somewhat close by, but wanted to have a mini-vacation while in the throes of school. This place was recommended to me by my parents, who come here when they need a break from work and care taking. The first thing I noticed was that the room was immaculately clean. I've worked as a housekeeper before, and I was astounded, I couldn't find any dust, a single smear on a window. The bed was soft and very easy to sleep in; from the bed, we had a view of the church from across the street. We had some issues with the television, but the staff tended to the problem immediately, and it was fixed quickly. We had a suite, so the room also had a fireplace and a double Jacuzzi (also amazingly clean, and they are difficult to get 100% spotless). The Jacuzzi was immensely relaxing- definitely the highlight of the room, in my opinion. Water pressure from the sinks were a little low, but not enough to be too disruptive. We had taken one of the packages, so we got a 50$ gift certificate to their dining room per night. We were staying during Islander Day, and the dining room wasn't set to be open that day (we weren't notified in advance, only when checking in), so we decided to splurge for food. I enjoyed some delicious salmon and gnocchi, while my SO got the steak- the best steak he's had in years. All the vegetables were perfect, and the beet puree on the plate was one of my favourite parts of the meal. The dessert was fiercely tempting and we caved, and each got a dessert, both of which were immensely delicious. The waiter (and food) was prompt, and the waiter was always smiling. The breakfast was a bit of a letdown, but that was mostly in our own heads. The package on the website said a deluxe continental, but my parents (who had this exact package a few weeks ago) had said their breakfast was full-service, and my SO was looking forward to eggs benedict. Again, the website did say it was a continental breakfast, so overall I'm not upset- it's an internal upset, not the fault of the Dundee Arms. Their continental breakfast consisted of a fruit salad (which was very fresh and delicious), some baked goods, toast, cold cereals, yogurt, and eggs that could be soft or hard boiled. It may have been nice for there to be some breakfast meats available. All my complaints are very small and did not whatsoever tarnish my experience, which was wondrously relaxing, just what I was looking for.…
The best thing about Dundee Arms is the location; quiet, near the lovely beach walk, yet convenient to all the downtown attractions, restaurants, etc. Parking is provided, a plus. The room was small,. with very little closet/bureau space. The restaurant had a limited menu, and the food was quite oprdinary. I had a mess of hair in my eggs one morning and kinda got the "really?" look when I pointed it out. To top it off, the rates (September) were very high, even with a 75 cent Canadian dollar. I expected much better.
Charming Inn close to center of Charlottetown. Easy walking distance to restaurants and other attractions. The on-site restaurant is pretty good and offers both indoor and outdoor seating. Our room was pretty, clean, and nicely appointed.
