Beautiful older property in good shape, lovely yard with mature trees, very clean, good water pressure in shower, comfortable bed and linens, air conditioning and cable tv in rooms. Inn is beautifully decorated with antiques, many nautical. Lots of information about Charlottetown and PEI available. For us insomniacs, there is a guest den in the reception area and a guest parlor, as well as books, movies, and a large selection of magazines available. Also, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cold drinks and baked goods are available at all hours. Dining room features one long table and several small, a nice feature, as not everyone is comfortable eating with strangers at a communal table. Breakfast was scrambled eggs and sausage, along with muffins, fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast and granola ... nothing fancy, but good and plentiful, a nice change from many inns which serve gourmet breakfasts that leave one still hungry.
Finally, innkeepers Judy and Trevor were very friendly. We spent one night in the least expensive room, and Judy made us feel as welcome as if we were spending two weeks in the biggest suite.
I've stayed at over a dozen inns and b&bs over the past few years, and I can say that the Shipwright is one of the best, with its attention to detail. Judy and Trevor obviously love their inn and innkeeping.
