    The location was great; just a few minutes´walk to both downtown and Victoria Park. The room was very clean, and the beds were fantastic. The breakfast was good. There weren´t coffee makers in the room but I enjoyed using the coffee machine in the breakfast area as it did very good coffee. I also found it great that there was an internet kiosk (free of charge). The staff was very friendly and courteous. I would recommend this hotel to my friends!

    The rooms were a bit small.

    The staff recommendation for nearby things do, the second night room and stay. The room was far more comfortable than the original.

    I felt the breakfast food quality was subpar. A bit more warm food or pastry selection would have been a nice addition.

    The layout of the hotel made our stay easy and accessible for our timetable.

    Not very friendly or welcoming staff upon check in or check out. Almost rude overnight male staffer; didn't even acknowledge us at morning breakfast and we were the only ones in the lobby area; acted as if we were imposing on his time.

    The location is very good. An easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and the waterfront. The beds were very comfortable. The lobby area is urban looking and has free coffee. The rooms have been recently redecorated, although I was disappointed that they did not continue with the urban theme in the rooms. We had a very early flight out, so they offered to prepare a breakfast to go for us which I thought was above and beyond what other hotels do.

    We didn't get our wakeup call, although we had set other alarms so it didn't matter. I was also disappointed that in a place like Prince Edward Island, the bath products were made in China. It seems like an excellent place to buy local.

    This is a lovely hotel within walking distance of everything in Charlottetown. The breakfast was extensive and the room was very comfortable. The staff was most helpful.

    The breakfast was good for the value.

    Our room opened directly to the outside instead of to a hallway.

    We loved the location as it enabled us to walk everywhere in historic Charlottetown. Although it is right in the heart of the city, it is located on a quiet street. The staff were friendly and helpful particularly the manager who is very hands on and accomodating. The service was excellent and it is a very well run hotel. We highly recommend this hotel to others and we will certainly be back.

    If we are to make an observation, some of the rooms are quite small while others are quite large and have balconies.

    At check-in we were made to feel really welcome. The provision of coffee and cookies in the comfortably furnished lobby was a delightful touch. The room was spacious and well-appointed. Parking arrangements were ideal. Since the main purpose of our trip was to attend events of the annual Charlottetown Festival, the nearness of the hotel (four minutes walk) to theatres was important.

    No complaints - except that the ice dispenser was hard to find!

    Very good

    Very clean and the staff was exceptional. Continental breakfast was the usual but nice.

    Surprised at the size of the room. We booked a double (last rooms available) not knowing that the room is meant for one very small person (we are not large either). Seriously it was the size of a large broom closet. We have a small house and our bedroom is bigger then this was. To add insult to injury we paid $323. for two nights. I could not imagine what a Queen or King room would have been. Really hard to recommend this hotel to anyone. Sorry, but we will not be back.

    Exceptional

    Aside from the walking convenience to important elements of the city, we enjoyed the creative lay-out of the hotel, the informal areas inside and out, the breakfast location and quality, and all elements of the beautiful room. The lack of a pastoral window view was not important. The young ladies at the counter who served as our travel guides and culinary consultants were every bit as personable as instructive, and we could not have been treated more professionally or courteously. If ever back in Charlottetown, we would not consider staying anywhere else.
