Was in Charlottetown on business and stayed for the first time at this hotel. Lovely modern decor in the rooms which were clean and well laid out, with a couple of eye-catching green and white artificial lily arrangements. Comfortable bed and comfy linens. Nice quality amenities for guests in the washroom. Hotel placed a delicious green apple at each place... More

The hotel was based on the motel conception but was very modern in decor. This was a very comfortable hotel which included breakfast which was wholesome. We did have complimentary wine one evening as it was Canada day. Just 5 minutes walk from all the good restaurants and pubs. A very nice little town in a beautiful province.

We had a room at the rear, with not he best view and the room could have been bigger. However, the overall atmosphere was terrific, the staff were so obliging and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they were all real assets to the business. The breakfast and the evening welcome with a glass of wine,beer etc was much... More

I just loved this hotel. It is small and while I would not call it boutique-y, it has a really homey vibe. My room was clean and tastefully furnished and the bed comfortable.I liked the 'green' incentive as well. The staff were friendly and attentive and responded to any requests promptly. The gem was the wonderful breakfast buffet, with something... More
