“Great service, clean, comfortable bed and delicious breakfast”
Reviewed 28 June 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Charlottetown at the Sonata Inn. It is brand new. The bed and bedding was so comfortable we did not want to get up in the morning. It is walking distance to restaurants and Charlottetown attractions, and really close to Victoria Park. We had a spotless, quiet, good size room, with a DVD player (a selection of DVD's as well), and a fridge. We were able to get a wireless connection in our room which we used every day on our laptop to research restaurants, sites, etc. The staff was friendly. It included a delicious hot breakfast every day. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit at breakfast. There was also your choice of toast, bagels, muffins, juices, cereals, yogurt, etc. There is a coffee room for refreshments at any time during the day. We will definitely stay there again on a return trip to PEI.

I stayed here for a few nights with my husband during the ACCC conference in Charlottetown. I was excited to hear that this was a brand new inn and that we were going to be among the first to stay in it.

As soon as we entered the door, we were greeted by two delightful staff members. They were so keen on making our stay as comfortable as possible.

Our room was GORGEOUS. Everything was brand new (well, the Inn is brand new isn't it?) The furniture matched perfectly...and the beds were incredibly comfortable.

The breakfast was simply devine. Every day was a different hot dish. We stayed for quite a long time, and we never got the same thing twice! Such variety!

The location was amazing. Our meetings for the conference were only minutes of a walk away. Yet the Inn is in a very quiet section of town...I was very impressed.

One thing I might say against the place. The decor is a little sparse. The family room is very inviting, and they have a beautiful looking piano (I didn't play it though!) However, the hallways are a little bare. Not too many pictures or decorations, which is too bad, because there was plenty of room for it. However, this is a new place, and I'm sure the owners are thinking of something. The decor in the room is also a tad sparse...but it fits the style of the room.

The ROOMS!!! They were so large and inviting. We had a room with a Queen bed. It was very comfortable. It was a treat to have free wireless internet too...even though they also had a guest computer for everyone to use.

After Charlottetown, we left to go to Summerside! If I ever return to Charlottetown, I will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for the great review! It was a pleasure to have you with us! Thank you for mentioning the decor....this is something we are definitely working on. We are still looking for appropriate pieces of decoration that fit the overall style of the Inn...We just haven't found something that suits the place, and we don't like to place things "willy-nilly." I am sure we will find more decor pieces in the next couple of weeks.

We want to thank you for our stay.
Congratulations on the opening of your Inn. We feel lucky to be one of your first guests.

Your Inn is perfect for anyone looking to relax and feel "at home". We felt welcome at any time of the day - even late when poor Mike was solving our technology issues. We go looking for this type of retreat several times a year - we are so glad we found you.

We were so impressed with the quality and decor of the room (very soothing), the linens were luxurious (I would LOVE to know where you bought those sheet sets - we slept like royaly!) and the open kitchen - with cookies.....yummy! The wireless internet and Business centrewere other important features as we are both business people. The homemade breads and fresh fruit with breakfast in the morning are fabulous!

The Inn is in the downtown area so we were able to leave the car and walk safely around the charming community and business sections to restaurants, galleries and shopping. The staff are happy to help with recommendations.
