Colonial Charm Inn
Ranked #2 of 43 Charlottetown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We stayed 3 nights in this fabulous B&B in Charlottetown. It is only a short walk from the downtown, has very comfortable accommodations, excellent full breakfast and wonderful hosts. Shelly and Reg are the best. They are gracious host and have excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to see. This was the best stay of our two weeks in Canada. If back in PEI will definitely stay here again.

We loved our 5-night stay at the Colonial Inn B&B! We both agree that we would definitely stay again. The B&B was a short walk to all downtown attractions, and took us only 15 minutes to walk right to the water. Perfect!! Shelly and Reg were very gracious hosts. They were amazing at recommending places to see and visit. Reg made excellent restaurant recommendations (Buono Mangia = to die for!), and Shelly gave us some great tips on where to visit (e.g. we visited North Rustico beach at Shelley's recommendation, and LOVED it!).

We stayed in The Brighton Room (it used to be a suite, but after construction of the new Loft upstairs, it's now a room). The room was a bit smaller than we had expected (the closet was super tiny, too!) but we probably felt that way because we had 5 days' worth of stuff to unpack/store in the room. We simply put our big suitcases in the car and there was more than enough room. The other slight downside is that the wireless internet only works in the bathroom. Understandable in a large, older home with thick walls! It really wasn't a problem for us. The balcony was so wonderful to have. We spent time out there every evening. The room has direct access to the balcony, which is shared with the rest of the house (though the Brighton room has a portion of the balcony sectioned off). There is no mini-fridge in the room, but there is one in the sitting room upstairs (we bought lots of cheese at COWS and needed a place to store it!). There was always plenty of room to keep all of our stuff. Also, Reg was super sweet and made ice for us every single day, so when we went off on a day trip with a small cooler, we always had ice. That was so nice of him; we really appreciated it!

Overall, we would highly recommend the Colonial Charm B&B and would not hesitate for a minute to stay here again. It is so charming and Shelley and Reg are so friendly. We also benefited from a Stay & Save Special which gave us our 4th night half off (plus a really great coupon book which saved us over $60.00 over the course of our trip!)

Thanks for a great experience for our first time in Charlottetown! We will definitely be back!!

We stayed only one night and on short notice, but highly recommend this B&B. The location is great - close to the heart of Charlottown! It's clean and very well run by Cheryl who's got literally everything under control and still has time and energy to plan every guest's day!! We totally enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return!

The Colonial Charm Inn was like a holiday from the holiday! Shelly welcomes with open arms to a house every bit as charming as the name suggests, complete with armours and antique hats. Rooms are clean and neat, breakfast varied and of gourmet quality, there are homebaked treats available through the day in the lounge, and Shelly is a fountain of useful information of what to do in and out of town. Warm thanks to Shelly and the team for a most enjoyable stay.

We stay at B&B's often when traveling and I picked this one based on TripAdvisor reviews. I'm so glad I chose it!!! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Reg who showed us around the house and made us feel right at home. He also has the best recommendations for places to eat in Charlottetown (and will make you a reservation). TIP: When Reg tells you to eat at Buona Mangia, listen to him, it's amazing.

We were in the Cozy Queen room...perfect for our 2 night stay. Breakfast was very good and we enjoyed chatting with Reg and Shelley while we ate. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch and upstairs porch with a good book and a glass of wine. There is a small refrigerator in the guest lounge on the 2nd floor so you can bring drinks, leftovers, etc.

Reg and Shelley are an absolute perfect fit for a B&B. We were blown away by their hospitality and friendliness. They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and feel "at home." We will definitely be back!

Thanks Reg and Shelly for a great stay!!

This was the first stop on our 10 day tour across PEI and Nova Scotia, and we were really happy we stayed here. We arrived late thanks to underestimating driving distance and forgetting that PEI was an hour ahead of Maine, but they were very accommodating for our late arrival. Breakfast was good, but not memorable. The hospitality was kind and helpful. Our room was a little bit cramped, and had a nice balcony that I had hoped to use, but in the end, we didn't have much time to enjoy it. The location was great - a nice easy walk to the center of town, but still removed enough so it was a little quiet (and you can park your car easily).

We love Shelly! And Reg too, but we were about to leave our son with Shelly because he loved seeing her in the morning so much. We stayed in the new loft space which had plenty of room for our son to crawl around in with a small kitchen space to make snacks. The house is nearby downtown Charlottetown which made walking to restaurants at night very easy. Breakfast was delicious. Everybody was incredibly helpful with navigating places to go around the island. A great stay all around in a beautiful old house.

Room Tip: The new apartment loft room is spacious and very comfortable
