Service, location, and ambience all ideal for a visit to historic Charlottetown. Walking distance to harbour area, restaurants, historic sites. Handy to get out of downtown area via Water Street to roundabout at bridge, although driving in or out from other parts of the city can be slow. We had no problem parking at the hotel, we didn't need to use the car at all for the two days we were there in any case as it is a walking city.
The hotel was busy when we were there and is somewhat a victim of its own charm and comfort at breakfast time since guests tend to linger in the lobby where breakfast is served and it can be hard to get a place to sit if you eat toward the end of the serving period. But that only illustrates a good breakfast and pleasant surroundings. Just get down a little early!
The staff could not do too much for us, and did it all in a friendly and unforced manner.
We recommended the hotel to a couple we met later in the trip, hope they had a chance to visit.
