The property described as an “inn” is really a collection of houses along one block near the edge of the region that is called the “Old Town.” The original house is the building in the photos, but only has a few rooms. The other corner of the block is the Hillhurst, another old house and that is the one in which we stayed. In between the two are several houses that are also available but we did not see what the facilities in those were. The prices are high, as you might expect in an old historic building serving as a B and B. However, the rooms are charming and well appointed. The bathrooms are quite small, but with tubs and all necessaries. There were no elevators, and we were in the center room on the third floor (probably a good thing, what with all the food we had been eating). Breakfast was included in our reservation and all breakfasts are served in our building, the Hillhurst. They are full-menu breakfasts prepared to order and served in the dining room or the side porch (weather permitting, of course). The food was excellent! The properties are apparently family owned and at least one son, Jake, works at the desk and around the property. Jake was a delight - charming, anxious to help (he carried our three bags up to the third floor faster than we could climb the stairs). We would certainly stay there again. It is close to the theater which presents “Anne of Green Gables - the Musical” (absolutely not to be missed - and you must get tickets in advance) and only a ten-minute walk to the waterfront. Parking is a nightmare in Charlottetown, but on-site parking is included at the Fairholm so this is a real plus - you don’t have to drive to do the Charlottetown things and can walk to do everything.

The staff at Fairholme were very friendly and it is a very nice place good location. Our only complaint was breakfast times, when the staff appeared disorganised. On our last day we sat down to a partly cleared table, after 30 minutes we still hadn't been offered any water or tea and hadn't any cutlery, so I had to ask one of the staff if we could order and have a drink. It wasn't until 50 minutes after we had first sat down that we were served any food. The day before wasn't much better. The Canadians next to us also didn't seem very happy but not sure if they said anything. I would have expected better from a Inn that rates itself 5 star. Staff need extra training in the mornings.

We stayed at the Hillburst Inn on a recent vacation. The Inn was convenient to downtown Charlottetown. The breakfast was very good. The room was very nice with a balcony. The one negative that one might find is that getting into the shower could be problematic if you had mobility issues. You had to reach around the shower door to get to the controls and then climb into the tub shower. It wasn’t a problem for me but I did think it may cause a problem for others. I am not sure if the other rooms. were like that. We were in the Emerald Room.

The building and the rooms in this hotel are very nice. But, The hotel information is a 24-hour service, but this is not the case. I left alone at 5 am. Because, staff said to me “front desk is from 7am. And, They are not call taxi for me. Because, front desk is from 7am. I made a reservation from Expedia. It becomes "24 hours front desk" in hotel information of Expedia

10 stars-5 for the lovely appointed rooms in a historic home. 5 for the great staff and service. A highlight of our Atlantic Provinces trip. The Inn is situated within walking distance of great restaurants, ocean strolls and easy access as you come into the city.
