Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2014

The wyvern is immaculate, clean and sophisticated. You feel comfortable there. A water view is key and keeps you away from the city noise. The staff is helpful and considerate.
Have stayed a few times at the wyvern, and each time has been great.

Room Tip: Have to have harbor view

Spent a couple of days here with friends during the Jazz Festival. Very nice hotel. Clean, modern, and a roof-top pool and bar with live music. You can walk to many restaurants, the park and marina. The restaurant next door can have some loud music at times, but it was not a problem. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely stay here again.

My mom and I arrived very late at night to this Hotel and were made to feel very welcome by the front desk personnel. The rooms are beautiful and quite large, the bathroom, WOW!
Our room faced the harbour which was nice and was great to wake up to. We had breakfast in the dining room and although a bit pricey, it was very good.
The rooftop bar and pool were closed when we arrived but we ventured up to see it in the AM and can imagine this is quite the happening place in the evenings :)
Will definitely stay at this hotel if in the area in the future :)

Room Tip: Ask for room facing the marina, it's quite beautiful to see in the morning when you open up thos...

Thanks martymonty for staying with us, I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed all that our luxury boutique hotel has to offer! I do have to agree with you as well that view of the marina from the rooms and Rooftop are rather exceptional, Next time you come to Punta Gorda, give us a call, it would be our utmost pleasure to have you stay with us again; maybe next time you'll arrive a little earlier to take in all of the splendors of the area and the nightlife on the Rooftop.

All the best,

I am sorry to say that I would not recommend this hotel based on the very loud music going on in the neighborhood. I talked to the front desk and other guests and I don't think staying on the front side of the hotel vs. the backside makes a difference. The hotel has a lot going for it, roof-top bar and pool, beautiful rooms and linens, a luxurious bathroom, work out area, etc., etc., HOWEVER, if you want to get a good night's sleep, bring your ear plugs. They will tell you the music is SUPPOSED to stop at midnight but that's not the case. It goes on for way too long and when you are laying in bed all you hear is the loud music. Sorry, Wyvern Hotel, but I would never stay here again or recommend your hotel. I talked to the front desk and they stared at me like I had two heads. They did credit me $25 but I would never stay there again. I left the hotel feeling tired and worn out from lack of sleep and a headache from the music.

Had a reunion in Punta Gorda Fl. and Wyvern was one of several hotels listed to stay in. Best choice. Friends who opted for other hotels were not happy with their accommodations. This is an independently owned hotel and they bend over backwards to please. Room was spacious and very clean and modern. Our room had a harbor view which they gave us because it was open. They have a rooftop bar and pool, great view and best place for sunsets. Walking distance to a number of great restaurants. Free coffee in the morning plus a breakfast area with a nice menu.
Restaurant is expanding to dinner within the next month. Safe off street parking. Great value

Room Tip: ask to reserve bicycles which they have for free. nice way to tour harbor area

The Wyvern is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are clean, modern, and very well appointed. But, there is a problem that they don't seem to have any control over... and that's the bar adjacent to their parking lot. We stayed in a room on the back side of the hotel, overlooking the parking lot - big mistake!! We had been driving all day, gone out for dinner, and returned to our room about 9:00 pm. The rock music was roaring at that little corner bar so much so that we thought it was right there in our room. We watched some TV (turned loud so that we could hear it!) until 11:00. I called the front desk at 11:15 to see what time the music would stop and was told that they had to stop at midnight. We weren't particularly happy about that, but figured we could wait. At 12:15, when the music got even louder, I called downstairs again. The clerk said that he would call the police and report it. He said that happens all the time and the police will go speak to them. By 12:35 a.m. it was quiet and we were able to get some sleep.

You would think that the hotel would try to do something about the situation. They have definitely lost one customer!!

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here, ask for a room facing the front of the hotel (it might be quieter!)

Well, customer service desk is a little understaffed and we were given keys to someone else's room. It's a nice room we had but keep in mind that very next door there is a bar/restaurant that plays live band music into the early morning hours. It didn't disturb my sleep but it may for others. There are many other hotels in the area so I might try a different one if I find myself in this part of Florida again which incidentally is wonderful and beautiful along the water.
