5 stars is little. Beautiful buildings, rooms with a lot of space and location it’s amazing. Breakfast was a must. Family owned. Friendly and price was better than other similar places. I stayed with my two kids and we are going to be back.

Ourselves and 2 other couples travelled 40 minutes for an overnight perfect getaway at the Fairholm Inn. It is part of a larger property with beautiful grounds, fire pits and walkways. Our meals were provided at Hillhurst Inn, just a few steps away on the same property. Our accommodations were beautiful, meals amazing. The MacMillans are a hard working family and their attention to detail/service exceptional. Thank you and thanks also to Eugene and Mitch.

Ben and the team at Fairholm Inn provided us excellent customer service when we were planning our stay in January for the month of April and May. Ben took the time to find the most suitable arrangements within their property that matched our needs and price points. He was quick, thorough and professional with his communication. We were really looking forward to our stay. Unfortunately with COVID we had to cancel. The Inn was gracious to support us to cancel the booking. Once things clear and we are able to make it to Charlottetown we’d be very happy to re-book with them. Their professionalism and attention to their customers needs is apparent; I’d definitely recommend them to friends and family.

We stayed in the Fairholm building on for two nights during a very cold week in February 2020. We were looking for a cozy place as a base for our first trip to PEI and Fairholm was perfect. Even in winter with the regular off season tweaks being made to improve the inn, the staff was friendly and as attentive as we could wish. Our room had a gas fireplace and soaking tub, both of which were appreciated after days spent driving around and exploring the island. The location is right on the edge of the historic core of Charlottetown so everything from the museums to the waterfront is a short walk (including the Old Triangle where there are open traditional music sessions--very important for this duo). The included breakfasts were also fantastic, with a number of options to choose from. We were looking for a relaxing few days away from our hectic lives and Fairholm hit the spot. While the building we were in is historic, with beautiful antiques and period details, it is not overly fussy and is very comfortable. We appreciated that they found the sweet spot between comfortable and impressively persevered. If you want a place where you can enjoy historic details without being made to feel that you might break something this is the spot for you.

The property is stunning. The hotel is about four buildings: a guest house two mansions and another large house. The level of service is next to none I’ve experienced at a hotel before. Very personal friendly and welcoming. Rooms were very clean and pretty. We met the owner who actually cooked us our breakfast which is included. I had eggs benny, it was beautiful. Real back bacon and homemade hollandaise. This will be my first choice when staying in PEI
