Colonial Charm Inn

Reviewed 24 July 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in the Loft. It was perfect. The suite is a good size with a king size bed, small couch, a desk for working, fridge, microwave and a sink. There is a little balcony to sit out on and enjoy the sun. You may also smoke out there too. The free Wi-Fi works reasonably well. Everything is newly renovated and very clean.

I honestly can't think of anything really negative to review so I'll be a little nit picky. 1) the TV reception and selection is poor. Saw the same at another hotel on the island too so I presume TV service in PEI is awful. Fortunately we didn't watch a lot of TV. 2) I would have liked to have the choice of eggs at breakfast but that's likely my fault for not asking, as the hosts are very accommodating. 3) I hit my head a few times (being a loft) and the end of the bed is a killer when you bang into it. I have the bruises to prove it.

The rating on TripAdvisor is high and deservingly so. The hotel is within easy walking distance of downtown. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood. The street is busy during the day. At night it is very quiet and it appears safe to walk around town at any time, despite several homeless people that camp out at corners begging for food and money. There is ample parking at the hotel out front and back. The building is nearly a 100 yrs old but well maintained. Fitting to its name the rooms are charming, and look like you are stepping back in time to the 1930s. The loft where we were is more modern.

This was the first B&B we have stayed at and it was the perfect introduction for this kind of accommodation. Thank you so much Shelly and Reggie for a wonderful stay and making us feel at home.

Room Tip: The loft is more modern and large for an extended stay. The front rooms with the large balconies ar...

A Bed and Breakfast type inn with Excellent Host, Super fantastic Breakfasts, Comfortable, clean rooms. Reasonable rates.

Had a great stay here and we were treated like family.

Reggie (aka Richard ;) is an awesome cook! Make sure you ask him to bake you his cinnamon cake, as well as his frittata, and candied bacon! ...hmmm or one of his strawberry, watermelon, and yogurt smoothies!

Host were also able to recommend some great things to see and do while on the island.

Very highly recommended!

The Colonial Charm is one of those rare places where one wishes a rating higher than Excellent (5) could be given. We LOVED it and were sorry to leave. The B. & B. is well positioned with easy parking and a comfortable stroll to the city centre. The rooms that we saw each had their own charm (we were in the Hannah Faith room - gorgeous), are tastefully decorated and beautifully maintained. Other highlights included Reg's baking (we so looked forward to our breakfasts), the guest library (including works by the young and talented Hannah Faith), the comfortable sitting areas, the speedy laundry service, the availability of chilled water, the superbly comfortable bed . . . . . . Most of all, we loved the warmth and care that Reg and Shelley show their guests. Thank you SO much.

Colonial Charm Inn was a most delightful place to stay! Extremely comfortable, delicious breakfasts, and tasty snacks available every evening with hot tea! Perfect location in which to explore every corner of PEI. Shelly and Reg delivered great advice on places to go, resturants to visit, and roads to follow. Our luggage was lost for a couple of days and they could not have been more helpful in making sure we had what we needed until it arrive. Shelly even laundered some items for us. I feel like we left good friends behind on PEI!

This was definitely one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in! Both Shelly, Reg, and the other staff were always very thoughtful and friendly. We got excellent recommendations of where to eat and places to go.

Every evening there was delicious homemade dessert, and the breakfast was incredible!

If you are looking for a place to explore downtown and historic Charlottetown, then this is a perfect place for you since it is within easy walking distance of most places.

We stayed for two nights in June. The room was comfortable and quiet, and the inn was in a great location - we didn't rent a car during our trip, and we were able to walk everywhere easily. The breakfasts were also very tasty. Shelley was super helpful. We showed up with no real plans for what to see and her recommendations for where to go and also for restaurants were spot on.
