This is a lovely old home that's been nicely updated with new bathrooms, usb connections in the bedrooms, etc. Breakfast is good and the house has an old world charm to it. The house is set back from the road on a shared driveway, so a little confusing to find at first. The property has nice trees and there's a place to sit outside. Our room also had a little sitting area, which was great for reading or watching tv (thought we were out exploring and didn't use it for that.) Charlottetown is lovely - small, but nice little shops and beautiful old homes to walk around and look at, etc. Overall, we loved this B&B and Charlottetown.

The reviews are consistently, amazing but that was not our experience. There was one or two other reviews that mirror our experience. The people are very friendly and go out of their way to accommodate you, but I felt that the owner/manager was not as reasonable. The location, grounds, and the room were very disappointing. As you make your way to the Inn, you drive along a road that reminds you of Middle America, crowded with standard commerical businesses. This made our first of PEI very discouraging. We asked ourselves why we had driven this far to end up in our own backyard. You turn into the driveway which is adequate for parking but poorly lite. The property is one of three-four other homes (which were modern) and crowded into this small "cul-de-sac". The Inn does not look to be well kept on the outside and the grounds/gardens around it were unkept and not very inviting. When you enter, you feel a bit claustrophobic, because the rooms are dark, small and cluttered. That was the same feeling I got when entering the room. I did not feel it was clean and definitely did not feel comfortable in the bed. The sheets felt thin and worn out. There was an AC, but only one small window and some necessities. The breakfast was Ok. We found these accommodations to be so disappointing that we forfeited two days and found a better place. We would not return and not recommend this place.

Response from peiinnkeepers, Manager at Elmwood Heritage Inn
Responded Aug 31, 2019
This lady booked our Nurse's room for 4 nights, they left on the second day for the " side trip" they called for 2 days and come back for the last night staying. When she just arrived in our place she told our staff PEI is suburb, even downtown Charlottetown is like a poor, undeveloped place. based on that we think you choose the wrong destination, you are more suitable for modern city, not PEI is beautiful charming places with lot of nature places to see. We are heritage place built in 1865, no client complain about the bed especially for Nurse's room as we just changed our mattress last year, different people has different feel about the bed, that is your personal feeling. Our housekeeping staff is very good at cleaning, our house style maybe old, but it is definitely clean. from your comments you may more suitable for staying at your home instead travelling outside. According to the breakfast, you email us for your special food requirement, we prepare it for you in advance and satisfy your all requirement, only one thing is we can not find the same brand of milk you mentioned as Canada didn't carry it. Maybe this didn't make you happy. we are proud of our breakfast as 99% of the guest are really enjoy the breakfast here, even some guest have special request like gluten free, diary free, we all made the different food for them. PEI has lot of tourism came every year and enjoy the beach, food here. you are the fewer person we met don't like this beautiful island.

I always perform due diligence when planning accommodations, and knowing nothing about Prince Edward Island, I was extremely thorough in my search. In this case, it really paid off. We stayed in the Cook's Room at the Elmwood Heritage Inn, among the nicest B&B experiences my wife and I have had. Even though there were several other guests, we hardly ever saw them, and we were there four nights. It could not have been quieter, and the A/C was entirely reliable. If I could have removed the Cook's Room and taken it back with me to California, I would have done so. The shower was a tremendous treat, and the bed was large and firm. If you are going to PEI, you will want to stay in Charlottetown. It is a great base for day trips, and the community itself is highly interesting with great restaurants. Be sure to take in all of the historical buildings.

Very nice, beautiful, clean accommodation. Room are a bit over packed with furniture but everything is very clean. Large bathroom and tub. Really nice and friendly service with lots of information about where to eat and where to go. I would not count on the breakfast :-) very simple and not exciting at all but the service is so nice that you will have a good time at the table anyway

I have not tried any other B&B on PEI, but my wife and I agree, we want to stay here again! Getting to the inn in the dark is a bit tricky. As you pull into the gate off River Road, bear right past several modern houses until you come to the towering, three story Victorian house so far back in the lot that Waze takes you to the street behind! This keeps the place very quiet. Rooms require carrying luggage up two or three flights of stairs, but the hosts provide detailed instructions and a pathway of signs to follow for late arrivals. The room we had was comfortable and charming. A window air conditioner provided a pleasant temperature to sleep. Breakfasts were spectacular. We asked for vegetarian food and it was done perfectly. I suspect they do an equally great job for other dietary requests. I needed to do some laundry and the hosts took care of it for me at no extra charge. How nice was that! You should stay here!
