The staff were incredibly friendly and nice. They bake things for breakfast there, causing the house to smell like cinnamon buns (or the baking of the day). One of the first questions the lady asked was if we had any food allergies so they could accommodate for breakfast. Being dairy free that meant a lot and it was so nice... More

My wife and I stayed 8 nights here in late July. Their continental breakfast is baked in the kitchen every morning. We loved the pastries and quiches. It was nice to come in after a long day exploring the island to find a dish of pastries in the lobby to satisfy the sweet tooth. They are located within easy walking... More

Spent two nights here and did not need to drive to visit the sights of Charlottetown-it is all within walking distance. The house and indeed the neighbourhood are all very nice mostly restored heritage homes. Service was great and the saff very friendly. Wewould stay here again. Continental style breakfast.

Enjoyed our stay - good accommodations and convenient location for easy walking to shops and restaurants. Simple Continental breakfast offered. Surprised that we had to especially request DeCaf Coffee , given how many drink only decaf now.

Thank you for choosing us for your stay on the island! Our continental breakfast is indeed a simple one, though we do aim to provide home made pastries and quiche. We have made a change for the upcoming season so that decaf coffee will be made as readily available as the caffeinated version, and we apologize for any inconvenience we... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in late September. The inn is centrally located--just a few blocks from the center of downtown in one direction and Victoria Park in the other--but also in a quiet residential area.
