We went with our 2-young children and elderly parents and stayed two of the resorts one and two bedroom cottages.
The two bedroom was very spacious yet quaint, and cottage like. The staff were very inclined to please and cleaning staff friendly. The beach was a bit of a surprise as it was rather underdeveloped. Its raw beauty was exceptional, but not designed for handicapped people like my father needing some kind of ramp to access the beach. There were also tonnes of jellyfish so our children could not swim.
We were in all, very pleased with our stay. The golf course is very challenging, please ask for a yardage book as it will help you and save you balls and get a helpful view of the difficult layout. The spa was wonderful, the estheticians exceptionally nice.

We stayed here because it allowed pets. The room was pleasant--it opened onto a nice big patch of grass beside the golf course--but there weren't any of the things that make a hotel room special--a duvet, extra pillows, special toiletry products, thoughtful design. Just a flowery bed spread, one pillow each, a painting, a tv, and bathroom with an ordinary shower. The hotel room could have been any hotel anywhere. The food tried hard to be worth the price they were charging, but didn't quite succeed. We had a skewer of scallops presented to us dangling from a tall metal apparatus, like they has just been punished and hanged. Although we were in the middle of a fantastic food-growing region at the height of summer, there wasn't much effort to create a menu that reflected the season. The beach, however, was absolutely lovely. I suppose if one liked golf, the hotel would seem more worth the price.

This place is a bit creepy. We stayed here for 2 nights in late August. Shortly after we checked in, my husband said, "This place is like Duloc," a reference to the Shrek film. Shrek arrives in Duloc and it's very well-kept, but there's no one around. He's welcomed by an automated puppet show, which proclaims "Duloc is a perfect place." Shrek finally finds everyone in the arena - the equivalent of the Crowbush golf course.

There was absolutely no one in the hotel except for a few uninterested staff members. One of the staff told us that the resort is dependent on conventions and we came between groups. Whatever it was, I'm amazed they can keep this place going.

It makes a lovely impression from the parking lot (which was almost completely empty). The grounds were perfectly manicured, everything was very clean, room was sterile but spacious, decent bed, lovely view of the golf course. We stayed in a Deluxe Standard View Room.

This place is truly in the middle of nowhere. We stayed here for 2 nights. I liked the idea of a remote location when I booked it, but the location is confining, and there's not much at this resort. It was chilly so unfortunately, we never made it out to the beach, which is about a 15-minute or so walk from the hotel (past the golf course).

We ate in the clubhouse our first night - nice experience, good food. We did room service the second night, expensive but pretty good. The dining room I wouldn't recommend, at least for breakfast. It was dead, but we couldn't find a waitress throughout the meal, from ordering to getting the check.

When we checked out, there were issues with our bill, because I noticed that our breakfast wasn't on it although we charged it to the room. Not surprisingly, the staff also had difficulty finding the waitress, who had the bill. It took about 10 minutes to sort it out.

The golf course has nice views and is challenging, but the starter was unreasonable. She insisted that we couldn't golf as a twosome, although she admitted that no one was teeing off for 30 minutes in front of or behind us. (It was a cold, windy day.) But when we booked our tee time, the clubhouse had told us that we could play alone if the course wasn't crowded. The starter insisted that we play with a single. Then he called and cancelled. Then, she made us play with a staff member. He was very nice and entertaining, but why couldn't he tee off before us? She said they had a policy that singles aren't allowed to play alone. We pushed her politely, but she insisted that we had to play with him. We would have spent our last day on PEI differently if we had been told upfront about this "policy."

If you do decide to stay here, contact Rodd's 800-number to get a cheaper rate for your room and golf by booking a package. I contacted Crowbush directly and the clubhouse directly, but a staff member told me that it would have been cheaper through the toll-free number. With our rates, it wasn't a good value.

I'll be returning to P.E.I. next summer, but probably won't return to Crowbush, even for the golf.

We stayed for two nights in August in a King room.

The room was awesome! My partner and I slept on the sofa bed and found it incredibly comfortable. Our good friend found the semi-separte bedroom luxurious, and the bathroom was huge, with a jetted tub. The service was exceptional - no waiting for anything. In fact, when I asked the gift shop if they had anything i could seal our half-full bottle of wine with on the day we left, the lovely lady there suggested I speak with the bar. The bartender gave me this great little plastic cork thing that worked perfectly - at no charge.

The grounds are gorgeous. Unfortunatly it was raining all weekend and we got no golf in, and were only able to do one walk on the beach - but it was enough to let the beauty of the grounds infect us, and help us to relax. On our walk, we discovered a raspberry bush and ate a few wild raspberries.

I spent a lot of time in the outdoor hot tub - so relaxing to sit in the jetted water and look out over the golf course.

We ate at both Davids and at the clubhouse. Davids had amazing food, well worth every penny (especially the duck spring rolls). The clubhouse food was fine.

We went there to relax and despite the rain, we were able to. We'll be back to the Rodd Crowbush, perhaps to one of the cute little townhouses we saw.

This was the second Robb property we stayed at on this trip, and this was by far more worthy of Rodd’s “Signature Resort” status, whatever that is. This resort is very well maintained, with lovely grounds (including the golf course) and convenient access to a long, walkable, and deserted beach. Our room was a huge suite, with a balcony overlooking the golf course and clubhouse. The weather was still warm, so we thoroughly enjoyed the balcony and the views including some beautiful sunsets.

We stayed toward the end of the season about two weeks before the resort closed for the winter. Due to its remote location, the hotel’s restaurant was the most logical place for dinner. However, since the hotel and its restaurants were fairly empty we did not bring high expectations for the variety and quality of the cuisine. Well, we were pleasantly surprised! The kitchen turned out consistently excellent meals. The seafood was fresh and imaginative. The service was attentive and professional.

We drove around much of PEI during our visit here, and ended up being very pleased with our selection of this hotel for our stay. Alternatives considered in Charlottetown and Summerside would have disappointing due to the commotion exiting in those towns. One of PEI’s apparent draws is the laid-back lifestyle, which would have been hard to experience in the big towns. The Crowbush, however, can provide all of the relaxation you could ask for, as long as you don’t get too serious about your golf game. Under the right circumstances this place is a winner!
