“World Class Accomodations and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We stayed there for 5 nights ending May 8, 2014, the rooms and staff are first class. Thank you to the staff that went out of your way to make us feel at home! The extra effort to get us a last minute car rental was very much appreciated!
Thanks from Winnipeg

I've stayed in a few places in Charlottetown. This is the best among those and likely the best in the city. It's a little pricey for what you get I think but Charlottetown accommodations (PEI accommodations actually) aren't that cheap, especially as the tourist season approaches.
It's a heritage property that's been redone. Service was very good. Continental breakfast was fine (nothing special, not bad). The location is lovely - short walk from the all the sights but on a quiet street. Good Wifi, decent TV, comfortable bed, modern (in an older style) bathroom, and lots of neat heritage photos throughout the property.
I would hesitate a little based on value, but other than that I'd return without hesitation.

This place is a gem. The hotel itself has loads of charm. The rooms are totally charming and the service is incredible! The staff are friendly and very eager to make your stay as wonderful as possible. And the amenities - wonderful chocolate chip cookies, a gorgeous and warm lobby. I highly recommend this charming and wonderful hotel.

My friends and I stayed in Room 401 during the weekend of ECMA's in April (at the end of the hall, very roomy and so quiet and the beds were amazingly comfy! From the moment we stepped into the hotel until the time we left, we received 5 star treatment. From the warm delicious chocolate chip cookies set out every afternoon to the awesome breakfast every morning, this hotel is one of the nicest I've stayed at in a very long time and central to everything! I know where I'll be staying next time I visit Charlottetown. Thanks, Great George, for making my time in Charlottetown a truly great experience.

Traveling for business- I was IMPRESSED. Large room, nicely furnished- everything worked, super clean, nice turn down service.

WINS= manager reception very tasty, friendly, didn't feel cheap. Breakfast- hot, tasty, much better than I expected. Staff- helpful, friendly, quick to help. Green program- skip housekeeping for the day and get a credit at local restaurants [AWESOME]
Losses= NONE

Looking forward to going back!

What a perfect place to welcome in Charlottetown's New Year sesquicentennial celebrations. All the action (fireworks, ice sculptures, fire pits, live music, good restaurants and bars, PEOPLE, COLD) happening right outside our door. (Important: if you book at the Great George, ask to stay in the main house, otherwise you will have to walk next door for the complementary breakfast.) We booked at the last minute and only got a room because there had been a cancellation. Our room was on the top floor (there is an elevator), well appointed with traditional furnishings, spacious, reasonably recently updated bathroom, cozy and comfortable. The staff was very welcoming, accommodating, friendly. We had come early because we knew it would be a busy day, and wanted a good parking option near the hotel. No problem, we were given parking behind the hotel and checked into our room several hours before official check-in time. Lots to do around the hotel, as it near the harbour, historic sites, downtown bars, restaurants. Lovely area for walking and sightseeing. After a great evening of wining and dining and taking in the special New Year events on George St., we were offered a beautiful complementary buffet-style champagne breakfast in the morning (this is not normal fare!) in the lovely sitting rooms, warmly appointed with old leather furniture, fireplaces, traditional decor. We sipped coffee for two hours in front of the large fireplace, talking with other guests, savoring the atmosphere. A perfect end to a perfect beginning of 2014. For those who like a traditional inn atmosphere and warm reception and service, the Great George is highly recommended.

Our first stay in PEI and this was a great spot. Close to the harbour and local restaurants, the Inn was perfect for us. They also had a complimentary breakfast as well. Would recommend to others for their stay.
