“Good find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

At first it looked like a motel-like establishment - not an Inn. Well it's not an inn but not a motel either. The room was large, with two double beds and space to circulate. Great shower - very clean restored bathroom. Breakfasts were included and served in a pleasant cafeteria-style room. Management also lends you a pass to enter the National Park for free - big saving if you go to the beach or wander in the wonderful National Parks of PEI.

My biggest dislike was the bed linen - cheap and ill-fitting. That was very annoying because you couldn't even sit on the side of the bed without the whole thing getting undone. You can imaging what it was like in the morning....

Our family enjoyed our recent 3 night stay at this charming property. It has a country feel with many amenities more typical of larger hotels. The property is well cared for and our room was spacious and clean. It was evident that the owners and staff take pride in their business. The location is great as well. We would certainly stay here again.

As we were part of a tour group, we did not expect too much being so far from Charlottetown. We were encouraged to find the room and bathroom was large with a pleasant view, 2 queen size comfortable beds and as we were next door to the reception office, lots of ice for our evening drink. Breakfast was a little chaotic as the group was over large so staggering our meal was the better option. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as close as possible to the central area (reception). It helps if it is raining.

Stayed here on Caravan Tour - rooms are large and updated. The included breakfast was better than expected - LOTS of freshly baked pastries and biscuits each morning, along with cereals, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, bread, bagels, etc. The freshly baked biscuits and blueberry muffins went fast!!

We stayed here two nights with our Caravan tour and found the folks most pleasant. Yes, it's out in the country, but it's reasonable to assume that visitors will have a car to drive into town if they want. But this is the place for relaxing in the country, with bike rentals, gym equipment in a workout room, and a walking path that features fitness equipment at intervals! I can't imagine what time the kitchen ladies start work for the breakfast, but there is a wide selection of items such as hard boiled eggs, cheese, breads and bagels, pastries, fruit, and cereals. There is even a patio if you want your morning coffee outside. The office people were hepful in getting us on the Internet to check out e-mail. There is no lunch or dinner service, but there is a family type restaurant adjacent to the property.

Room Tip: We were in the unit that connected with the office...and the breakfast room. Very handy in the AM w...

We recently stayed at North Winds for a couple of days and I was impressed with the cleanliness and layout of the rooms, especially with the digital tv and the air conditioning. The rooms were very reasonably priced and everything was so well kept. The rooms were so clean - something very important to me and I am hard to please on that score! We would definitely stay there again.

My only complaints are extremely minor ones: the breakfast, while very good, was a bit chaotic and I think the room could use a layout makeover so that people aren't getting in each other's way so much while they are trying to go to the different stations and around the tables. It might be worthwhile to extend the hours as well, so that everyone isn't trying to go at the same time. The other thing was the pool - we tried to go swimming but the water was freezing! My son didn't want to swim in it, and for him to refuse a pool it has to be pretty cold. :)

However, neither of these things would prevent me from enthusiastically recommending the Brackley Beach North Winds to anyone going to PEI. Friendly service, clean rooms, and great value.

Glad to hear you were happy with your stay, and will consider coming to stay with us again. We have several guests who return to stay with us. We look forward to these guests, as it is like having friends stop by for a visit.

We are in the process of changing the dining room, which we realize we have outgrown. We currently have a local woodworker building us new tables, which will take up less floor space, and hopefully make traffic flow much better.

Our pool, we keep between 82 to 84 degrees, and for the health of the pool, this is as high as we can keep the temperature. Because the air temperature in the room is quite high, it does make the pool seem cooler than it is.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate the input.
