“Cute and friendly!”
Reviewed 19 November 2008

We stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The owner was very friendly and as a bonus, spoke Spanish. We were only able to stay in the bedroom with Twin beds as everything else was already full. However, the room was very comfortable, full of amenities and the in suite bathroom, although small,it was perfectly cute. Tastefully decorated, well located, great breakfast, with available parking; we would definitely return.

Thank you very much for your positive review, and thank you for sharing pictures of our popular "Compact Room, 2 twin bed," room...which we call "The Yellow room." Thank you for your comments pertaining to breakfast, and parking!

I'm happy to hear that you may be returning and we anxiously await that day!

Cheers

Late August 2008:

We found the Inn to be exactly as described on their web-page, very friendly owners and staff! The Inn is also in a very convenient location for walking to all places downtown.
Off-street parking - enough spaces - was also appreciated and so was the fact that the place was very quiet at night. While right downtown, it's a little off the main thoroughfare, in a nice and quiet residential area.
The room we had was very nice, absolutely spotless, had good ventilation - windows you can actually open and the beds were extremely comfortable. A little bar-fridge rounded out our needs for some drinks and late night snacks.
Breakfast was ample and included daily a different warm serving plus fruit, all served by a friendly and helpful staff. But it had “Continental” leanings, with the ubitquous Danishes, Scones and cup-cakes. Those travelers which are used to European breakfast spreads however would be disappointed: no cheese board or cold cuts.
Some rooms have a balcony or veranda, and there are in addition many shared outdoor locations with tables and chairs for late night glasses of wine and conversation. There’s also a nice sun-room, a small kitchen for guest use and a computer with internet connection and printer.

  • Liked — We liked the "whole package", starting with location and ending with helpful owners and staff.
  • Disliked — there really was nothing we found not to like.

This is a comfortable B&B located walking distance from all the sights in downtown Charlottetown. We stayed with our kids and they had a good selection of DVDs as well as up to date electronics in the room. The offstreet parking lot around back made it easy to park and forget about the car while in Charlottetown. The breakfast was good and the staff were all pleasant.

Heritage House was a wonderful surprise. (There were 6 of us) Right in the heart of Charlottetown. Close to a lot of attractions. (Well within walking distance) We found the accommodations to be superb, and the staff was above and beyond normal "hotel" staff. They were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had to leave early on our last day to catch the ferry, and to our surprise there was a breakfast to go for all of us. Nice touch. We would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone who is making the trip to PEI.

We stayed here for 2 nights during a trip in PEI. The room was pretty average....the decor didn't match very well, but the bed was very comfortable with nice bedding. The bathroom was immaculate. Breakfast staff was nice but not overly so. We drove a few hours after breakfast for sightseeing. I became very very sick to my stomach. We turned around and drove back to the bed and breakfast. My husband let the owner know I was feeling sick to my stomach and that the only thing it could have been was the breakfast. They offered no assistance. We had to go out in an unknown city to try and track down a 24 hour pharmacy. Even if it wasn't their breakfast that got me sick, I would have expected a little more TLC for someone that became ill while staying in their house.
However, the next day, we had to leave early and they were very accomodating and made us a breakfast packed to go by 7am.

  • Liked — breakfast packed to go and selection of dvd's
  • Disliked — no help offered when i was ill

Thank you for your review.

However, I am disappointed to hear that your husband did not relay to you the plethora of information we gave him concerning your illness...including:
Giving him directions to the nearest drug store.

Revealing the ingredients of our breakfast dish to see if you were potentially allergic to something.

Showing him where the nearest Walk-in Clinic was located.

We took your sickness very seriously, however, as Innkeepers, and not qualified medics, we can only do so much.

We loved staying here. It's in a great location. You can walk to almost anywhere in downtown Charlottetown. The rooms were great. We had 2 rooms on the 3rd floor with a full kitchen between them. The breakfast was very good and the staff very helpful.
