10 to 15 minutes walk to down town as well the same to get to the board walk. Very much enjoyed the two rooms we stayed in. The breakfast was an experience in it's self. ie pancakes with candy glazed bacon smothered with blueberries was a first for my wife and me at a BnB. After meeting Shelly and her wonderfull staff we felt as if we had known them for years. regards Glenn

Planned to stay only 3 days but stayed another extra day. Hostess Shelley MacDougall and staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable, Amenities in B&B were excellent, beds were comfortable, breakfasts were great and very creative, Shelley pointed us in the direction of all the highlights of PEI and gave great tips on where to dine. She made reservations for us for dining, theatres, et al. She should be PEI's Minister of tourism. All said, the Colonoal Charm is our choice for another visit which we hope will be in the not too distant future.

We love staying at the Colonial Charm. Gary and Shelley go the extra mile to make sure that their guests know what is going on in PEI , and help them match up events to their guests' interests and time on PEI. The breakfasts are delicious and always become a wonderful social event with the friendly guests and staff. The Colonial Charm Inn is well within walking distance to the theater and restaurants in Charlottetown. They also welcome children. The rooms are very comfortable with private baths and include ac.
We would highly recommend the Colonial Charm Inn.

My wife and i live in Hawaii and have stayed at many B&Bs. I believe that the reviewer of the "Faded Charm" review is being unfair to the lovely people who run this place. Most B&Bs don't have huge, spacious rooms. If you want that, you can go to a large, sterile, impersonal chain hotel. Shelley, Reggie, Akiko, and Melanie made our stay in July 2011 a memorable one. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The preponderance of superlative reviews support what I am saying. Please don't be swayed by one negative review by someone who seems to expect a B&B to be perfect in every imaginable way. Please remember that B&Bs were originally homes and were not built to be lodgings. If you go to Colonial Charm, you will enjoy the warm atmosphere and fantastic people. Aloha from Kaaawa, Hawaii.

We stayed at the 'Colonial Charm B&B' after reading the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Despite a convenient location to downtown Charlottetown, and a healthy breakfast, we were generally disappointed with the place. All of the's in Charlottetown. rooms were 'stuffy' and over-filled with knick-knacks. I am sure that some some guests, this may be considered as cute and/or charming, but for us, it was unnecessary and somewhat claustrophobic.
There are better B&B

We were very disappointed to read the unflattering review as we have worked so very hard for over 15 years to make sure that everyone has a wonderful time with us and on PEI. We strive for excellence in every way beginning with your first call or e-mail to us to pick the best room suited to your needs. Our house and all of our rooms are personally decorated as that is one of the main things that makes each and every bed and breakfast unique. Our house as seen from the many accurate pictures on our website is decorated in a period fashion and potential guests can see from the website and reviews that the smaller items in our bed and breakfast are made up of antique cup and saucers, period hats and jewelery which most of our guests welcome as a look at the past. It is upsetting that my own personal taste in decorating has caused you to post a negative review of our business when we do believe that we offer a wide range of beautiful clean rooms with a fantastic breakfast, all the modern amenities in a downtown location all in an authentic heritage setting with genuine caring people that make it their goal to make your stay enjoyable.
