“I loved the pod in the turret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2006

I stayed at the Duchess of Kent Inn in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in July, 2005. It was after much research and consideration that I booked this accommodation and it was a great choice. My friend and I had difficulty finding an appealing room with two beds for a good price. At the Duchess of Kent, we booked the entire 3rd floor of the Inn, which had a sitting room, 2 bedrooms and a lovely bathroom for $125. One of the bedrooms had the cutest turret with seating area off it! Perfect for late evening picnics or some wine and chat. There are two extremely steep staircases to get to the 3rd floor. They are entirely safe but may challenge bad knees or vertigo!

Breakfast is available for a paltry $3.50, but the strict timing of the availability and the need to commit the night before (earlier than we returned from our evening of dinner and strolling) made it an offer that we were unable to accept. The house is set up in such a way that the guests have 24-hour access to a fully stocked kitchen and full sized fridge so we were entirely free to keep our bread, cheese, fruit and wine within easy reach.

The location of the inn within the city of Charlottetown is good. It is in the outer periphery of the downtown area so open eateries after 10 p.m. are scarce, but for walking around the downtown core by day it is a safe and appealing residential area within easy access of Government House, Confederation Centre, St. George St., the marina and waterfront.

I recommend lunch at the Olde Dublin Inn, arriving at or after 2 p.m. when you can get an amazing lobster feast, with free appetizer of mussels or chowder, for $20. Across the street is the Gahan which makes its own beer in an impressive variety of brews (one with a chocolate finish!) and has as its trademark a great fish and chips option, served in a paper bag.

Our hostess was a hospitable den mother, worried with our late arrival and full of exuberance and helpful tour information. Parking is available if Ms. Dalrymple is advised, be it in their driveway or on the street where she will feed the meter for you!

I recommend this inn without any reservation (but make a reservation, since it is sure to be at full occupancy!). Pictures viewable at http://community.webshots.com/user/kaki333
