“Home on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

A perfect stay at the colonial Charm Inn , This year we decide to stay 4 nights , because 3 night was just not enough , we always have a good time at this B & B . We meet and make new friends every time we go there. We arrived at 17;00 and Reg was there waiting for us. We had reserved the beautiful Herbert William Loft , it was as perfect as the last time , with the balcony that overlook Euston street with the beautiful view . Next morning Shelley was there to greet us for a delicious breakfast . Shelley and her team , Reg , Kico are like family for us and they treat everybody like this . This is the place to stay in Charlottetown , close to town and restaurant .

Thanks to all for a great stay .

We had an amazing time at this very special place in Charlottetown. We were treated like family and when 3 of the 4 of us caught a flu, we really were treated like family - with Reg tending to our needs of tea and toast and even providing us with an extra night's accommodation cause we were still unable to travel. Thought they would show us the door when we caught the bug, but they went above and beyond to make us a comfortable as possible until we felt better. Shelley and Reg are as warm and wonderful as their B and B. Can't say enough good things about our stay there. Thanks and I hope to see you again one day.

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!

Isabelle and Wes

Room Tip: . They have a room with a private balcony!

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!
