Very relaxing and enjoyable stay on the third floor with beautiful views of the bay. Great breakfast =) Close to Barneys (best pub in PE). Overall quality place - I like it. Cheaper options available as neighbours but I would stay here again.

Overall very impressed with the service level of staff, and the hotel. Breakfast was 100% perfect except on first day where I was told there was no smoked salmon. The view is excellent and happy hour with Jack Daniels cant be better! Thanks for the great 10 day stay Courtyard PE.

I spent some weeks in the courtyard, and had a very good experience. The rooms are very confortable, but what sticks in my memory are the fabulous breakfasts freshly cooked taken at the terrace facing the beach.
