“Simply incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

The ambiance of The Great George was remarkable. Then, we encountered the terrific staff, led by Rachel. The phrase, "Your wish is our command" came to mind several times.
Our large group held a business reception at the Wellington Boardroom. It dawned on me a day later that we were walking on historic and hallowed ground. I want to say thank you to Vanessa for her cheerful assistance with the beverages. It was amazing to see the hotel staff working to make our event just that......an event. Excellent work you guys!! Thanks for the drawn butter too.

We did have the pleasure to meet the owner, Kevin Murphy at the hotel, ate several meals at his associated restaurants and just had a fabulous time. On leaving, he and family were at the Charlotte town airport too. I haven't given recommendations before but am happy to give this one. The Great George, Gahans, Sims, Charlottetown & PEI, we shall return!!

Room Tip: Great cookies and all smiles.

Rooms are large, up-to-date and fully equipped (love the antiques, including the top-notch mattresses on four poster beds). Service was accommodating, timely, positive, friendly and thorough. Great for business trips or romantic getaways.

Room Tip: Not a bad room out of seven in our group.

I have traveled the world and NO WHERE have I experienced the type of service we encountered at The Great George. Our company booked 8 rooms for a trade show and everyone was blown away with the across the board level of service from top to bottom. All the rooms were different and the beds were amazing. Quaint, quiet location near everything and the historical background was simply amazing. We had our hospitality night where the founding founders of Canada used to come drink. Walked around with a smile on my face the entire week we were there. The GM, Rachel, was basically at our beckon call and helped us with every aspect of our visit, from helping the hospitality night go off flawlessly to helping with shipping many boxes home.
Our last day there we had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Kevin Murphy who also owns 8 or so restaurants nearby. We ate at one of his restaurants 3 times in 2 days! Our last night we ate at Simms, (which he owns too) and it may have been the best steak ever!
I cannot recommend this hotel enough. They were so accommodating I still can't believe it and promise you won't be disappointed.

I am just wrapping up a week at the Great George and cannot emphasize enough what a positive experience this has been. Rachel Vidito, the General Manager and her amazing staff set a world class standard for customer service, combined with accomodations and a setting that supposed 5 star hotels could learn something from.
I had the privilege of meeting the owner, Kevin Murphy whose vision to create this unique property and set a new benchmark for the lost art of true customer service must be applauded.
Do not hesitate to experience staying here; I guarantee you will be as impressed as I have been. I have never written a review on any hotel in my life; but felt compelled to "spread the word" on this piece of paradise....and I will be back!

Room Tip: Unique rooms and accomodations with a wide variety of options. Some of the "rooms" are act...

We stayed in the Witter-Coombs 3 bedroom suite last night. WOW---an excellent accommodation!! Tons of bedroom space, great common area, cute kitchenette and a spacious full bath on the main level and 2 person shower on the top floor. Great place to stay with a few other couples or as a family needing its space from each other!! The staff were friendly and called the suite about 10 mins after we arrived to ensure everything was satisfactory!! How's that for service? That's never happened to me during a "hotel chain" stay! Morning breakfast was delicious! The mini quiches were my favorite!! Give the GG a try for Charlottetown! You won't be disappointed!

I recently had an extended stay at the Great George on business and in the last 3 years it was simply the best accommodations and experience I have ever enjoyed. I can say that I actually came home relaxed from a two week business trip. The staff at the Great George went out of their way to make each and every guest feel welcome to a home away from home. From the comfortable great room lobby area to the quality rooms, the staff and ownership of the Great George have really mastered the formula of hospitality. It came right down to all the staff, from the front desk to the grounds crew - how many hotels will take the time to scrape off your vehicles windshield after a night of frost. If you are looking for comfort, friendly and professional staff at a reasonable cost then look no farther than Charlottetown's jewel, the Great George.

Room Tip: Room 165 (just completed Spring of 2011)was ideal for an extended stay -with a full kitchen, extra l...
