Judy and Trevor are superb hosts, very knowledgable about the town, the sights and the local area. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Shipwright Inn to anyone looking to stay in Charlottetown. Carole and Neil from Victoria... More

Our experience at the Shipwright Inn B&B was excellent! We stayed there on our first night of arrival and on our last night before leaving. We were cycling PEI for two weeks, and they let us store our bike boxes in their shed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the breakfasts were delicious! They personally served each table, which gave... More

Spent two nights on our first visit to PEI and very glad we decided to stay at the Shipwright Inn. It is truly a five star inn with beautiful rooms, gorgeous property, and a great breakfast. Judy & Trevor were very helpful and full of information. We would definitely recommend the Shipwright Inn as the place to stay.

This was our second trip to Charlottetown and absolutely the only place we would stay in town. beautiful old inn that has been incredibly well restored with a nautical theme. Very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The hosts are friendly and informative and overall this place is a great value for money and I would highly recommend it

Very professionally run B&B. Trevor was terrific to deal with from start to finish. There is a lot of extras available that are a great bonus. Very clean and comfortable room. Great location in the city. We will definitely be back.

The Shipwright was the perfect place to stay during our first visit to PEI. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed it for so many reasons. The home itself is a gorgeous piece of Victorian-era Charlottetown. The Inn and rooms are full of antiques from the period, many of them nautical, as the original owner of the home was... More

Even though we arrived late, we were greeted with a friendly note of welcome and a detailed explanation of all the important information. It even included a snack and recommendations for dinner for that evening which were exactly what we needed after a busy day of traveling. Our accommodations were more than expected because it included not only a bedroom... More

We had a good stay here last week. The location is great for this B&B. It's a couple minute drive from the downtown area, and there is plenty of parking for the guests in behind the house. The room was very clean with a private bath, and we couldn't hear any if the other guests at all during our stay.... More

My husband and I stayed at The Shipwright Inn for 9 days this month, for our first visit to Prince Edward Island. We loved staying here for numerous reasons. On the one hand, staying here is like staying in a museum of Victoriana. There are so many fascinating objects, perfectly preserved from the Victorian period, most of them labeled. Just... More
