“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Our family including our 4 year old daughter stayed over the weekend. The hotel although not exactly on the harbor is still excellent. Roof top bar, pool and beautiful, peaceful view of the harbor from their makes up for it. The harbor facing room we stayed in was excellent. It was extremely clean and the bed was awesome. Apple ipod docking station in the room is a nice touch especially when ur 4 year old loves dancing. The bathroom was a total surprise, it was huge, tastefully decorated and extremely clean with best toileteries . The soaking bath tub was a bliss. Hotel lobbies are carpeted but it was extremely clean and lobbies always smelled nice unlike some other hotels where carpets are old and stinking.

The service at the bar, restratunt and at reception was excellent. Although the breakfast buffet menu or the dinner menu was not extraordinary, it was sufficient. Buffalo wings were not that great..tasted a bit old but margharita pizza was very good. But when you are at the roof top while sun is setting or at night looking at the harbor enjoying your drink, the lack of menu items doesn't bother.

Hotel is close to fisherman's village (around 1.5 mils) and the pirate festival experience was unique. Strongly recommend taking eary morning walk around the harbor from the hotel to fisherman's village .. it is a serene experience.

We liked the hotel so much that we extended by 1 more night.

Plan to come back during winter when weather is nicer

Room Tip: Corner harbor facing rooms in 3rd floor are good. We never faced any noise issues with DJ playing on...

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend. We found this hotel on line by accident ( I should do this more often) we were so surprised at how beautiful this was. The Florida resident rate was more that fair making them a very good deal.
Happy hour prices from 5-7 was also very appreciated.
Punta Gorda has change so much over the last few years, this area especially.

We found that the location was in walking distance to restaurants, parks and a beautiful board walk surrounding the pier.
An adorable town and hotel.

I am an amateur photographer who has been dying to catch some sunset scenes out on the west coast, specifically Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key, and Venice Beach. After doing some research on lodging that was close to my points of interest, I stumbled upon a deal for this hotel on www.booking.com. Of course, I checked out its Trip Advisor ratings and later discovered that they were all on-point.

The Wyvern Hotel is conveniently situated on the water in the historic district of Punta Gorda, with easy access to both US-41 and I-75. Parking is free and ample (two lots).

Upon check-in, the desk clerk was extremely pleasant and efficient. I was pleased to discover that the check-out time was 12:00pm; this bit of extra time later enabled me to sleep-in beneath the cool, cushy duvet and mountain of alternative down-filled pillows.

Maneuvering the hotel, so as to get to my fifth floor room, was quite easy. Given that it is a boutique ambiance, it is a rather simple layout: the lobby, restaurant, fitness center (quite small, but well-equipped for basic physical fitness needs), and business center (again, small, but providing basic communication necessities) were on the bottom floor. Another rooftop restaurant and bar offered a spectacular bird's eye view of the city and the setting sun. Although an obviously older edifice, the common areas of The Wyvern were spotless and well-maintained.

My king suite was no exception to the impeccable upkeep. The room was very spacious (complete with a sitting and a work/desk area) and well worth the mere $111 that I paid, after taxes. In addition to the luxurious bed, I was especially impressed with the generously large bathroom (complete with a lengthy vanity area and stand-up shower). The inclusion of a separate, ergonomically-shaped tub made my two-day escape from reality even more delightful. The hot water was plentiful and never ran out as I drew my bath. There was ample ledge space around the tub to place candles and iPhone speakers. The comfortable cotton-polyester blend spa robe was a comfortable finishing touch.

I can honestly say that I had one of the best nights of sleep in my entire life that day. I must admit, however, that I am a night owl and do not retire earlier than 1 a.m. or so. With that being said, be aware that there are bands that play locally until around approximately 11 p.m. The hotel mindfully places complimentary ear plugs on your nightstand, so as to aid in having a more peaceful slumber.

Overall, my stay at The Wyvern exceeded my initial expectations. I certainly will seek out lodging accommodations at this hotel when I return to the west coast. :-D

A last minute change in business plans brought me to the Wyvern and I was pleasantly pleased. My trip was extended by a few days and Maryanne was very helpful in assisting me. She also was very accommodating sending out the multiple faxes I needed to get done in a certain timeframe. Fred in the sports bar had a wonderful personality and excellent service; always on top of everything. The rooftop bar, although I only visited shortly had an amazing view with a fun band playing. The room was clean, comfortable and well supplied. I enjoyed the fact that it's advertised as a non smoking hotel & actually was. When I travel back to Punta Gorda this is a must stay hotel for me.

Pulled in on the boat to the public Marina and walked across the street to the Hotel. Great service and fantastic facility. Nice pool on the roof. Really a bargain for the price. Sports bar off lobby has fantastic food and a great price. Staff was very friendly. Highly recommend.

Was back at the Wyvern once again, and the rooftop was fantastic, especially our bartender Linda. She is so professional and efficient. Don't ever let her leave......... And of course the best views in the area, hands down!

My 17 yr old son got stranded at the local airport because of a canceled flight. Jen , the restaurant manager picked him up from the airport and brought him back to the hotel. Maryann, the front desk manager went above and beyond catering to my son's needs. They both helped me so much and I am so thankful for everything they did. My son said the hotel was awesome looking too. I was in panic mode when his flight was canceled and I was already in NY. They made both myself and my son feel at ease on this stressful day. So grateful to them both!!
