Shaw's Hotel and Cottages
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Brackley Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Shaw's , Stayed in cottage 22 and were actually surprised at how nice the cottage was when we arrived, The pictures on their web site do not do it justice ..It was spacious, clean and well maintained , tastefully decorated ..Big deck with bbq, patio table and chairs and lounger ..Best cottage we have ever stayed in. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to have some privacy and peace and quiet .. It was just perfect .. Cant think of a single complaint. The main hotel is stunning, the grounds are beautiful..The staff is helpful and friendly ..Amazing value too ! Oh , And watch for bunnies ! :))
Perfect !

Shaw's cottages are extremely comfortable. We have said there many times over the years and also get one of the cottages that have an amazing fireplace. We can walk Brackley Beach and watch the most amazing sunsets. What does make this place so special are the owners and the quality of the employees they hire. You are treated with respect and made part of the family.
The food is fresh, homemade and has great flavour. They also have another building you can rent for large family gatherings with on site catering.
Come to Shaw's where you can have a true family vacation with out all the distractions.

Room Tip: Cottages at the end of the road have woodstoves and are very quiet. However I love a full fireplace...

A friend and I spent a week in a cottage at Shaw's in May. The cottage was well-equiped and very comfortable. The place was very quiet since the tourist season had not begun yet. The price was very reasonable. What really makes this place special is that it is located next to a national park. We took many walks through the forest and on the beach. The location is great for seeing the island. The owners were very nice and accomodating.

Room Tip: We have cottage 25, which was large and far from the main building. It was nice to be in the trees.

We stopped in at Shaw's for dinner during the last week in August. They were preparing for a large party at 7pm so we arrived at 6pm. To start with we had the scallops which were to die for and the wonderful squid ink lobster stuffed ravioli was perfect. The service was good, the main, fresh halibut was lovely and the dessert, blueberry cobbler with home made ice cream was the best we'd ever had!-Thanks for an amazing meal, we'll be back!

We just had another great holiday at Shaw's, a family run treasure of a place in Prince Edward Island. One cannot imagine a better place to holiday in the summer - especially if you have children. This has been our 7th fantastic summer holiday here in a row, and we have booked for next year again. Shaw's is always a sight for sore eyes. We love the views onto the shimmering bay; the fields with hay bails, the manicured grounds. Brackley beach is a 5 minute walk down a red dirt road. It is ideal for early morning and sunset strolls - and of course swimming and sandcastle extravaganzas with the children. The food is great and there are always other children to get to know and play with. It is a unique place in that children and adults are both happy. Adults can relax with a drink on the gorgeous verandah - children are happy playing at the playground - that is just at the right distance... We have not found that anywhere else............ Priceless............

We went there outside season and we were maze by the quality and the servi we received there. It is the typical place where you can go just your family or with several families and meet at the beach or at the playground woth kids. From the BBQ to the Hot tube, the TV and the fire place, our cottage was just what we needed during our trip. DOn't hesitate, just go for it !

Four of us ate dinner at Shaw's Restaurant earlier this month after not having eaten there since last year. Since the hotel/cottages cater mainly to families, dinners tend to be informal with lots of children around. So, we reserved at 7:30 - assuming that most families with young children would've dined earlier in the evening. Perfect - we were 4 of about a dozen total adults there. We tucked into generous cocktails, delicious appetizers (salads, chowders, soups), and well prepared and presented main dishes (char, halibut, and oxtail). When I noticed that my char was a bit undercooked, it was immediately removed - and reappeared within a few minutes! Desserts were substantial (cobblers, ice creams, mousse) and yummy. The sous-chef, Matt Chandler (formerly at Lot 30) came to visit at our table for a couple minutes at the end of the meal - and we told him how delighted we were with the dining experience. Our efficient, fun, and patient server - Luke - remembered us from last year's visit (for good reasons, fortunately!) and took care of our dining needs. A comfortable, warm ambience w/ very good food and staff. We'll be back!
