Our family stayed at the Clarion Collection Cavendish Gateway resort as we were enticed by the rate for their "Family Fun" package. The pricing in retrospect was a good value as we enjoyed "free" admission (included with hotel rate) to the main Cavendish attractions: Green Gables, Avonlea, Sandspit amusement park and Cavendish Beach.
However, the southern wing of the hotel smelled musty, particularly in the hallway, and our room smelled strongly of mold and mildew. Getting to the complimentary breakfast room involved a rather lengthy trek through the property's northern wing, which, oddly, smelled fresher. We were approached by staff for a voucher for our complimentary continental breakfast, however, we were never given vouchers upon checking in. The pool was in a semi-finished looking area of the property. Didn't feel safe.

Passes to the attractions were also handled awkwardly at the front desk. We had hoped to "do" all the Anne of Green Gables activities on our first day: Avonlea and Green Gables House, and all the outdoor things: Park and Sandspit on the second day. We were dissuaded from obtaining all passes necessary to suit our planned itinerary and instead had to return to the hotel AFTER checking out after our second night to return the passes for Green Gables House and Cavendish Beach. Not very efficient nor professional.

Overall, we were disappointed with this property and will not stay there again when we return to PEI.

Everything was perfect with our family package. After reviewing many other potential packages we chose Cavendish Gateway Resort and we were totally pleased. Excellent breakfast, service, clean and spacious rooms and a lot of variety offered in the package. Horse and wagon rides on the property, campfire, tennis court, etc. Everyone should come over and experience the great family package deal offered by this hotel.

The Cavendish Gateway Resort did not impress us. After visiting many hotels throughout the Maritimes, it was not the greatest. But, the family package (in value season) gave us a rate that was cheap for Cavendish. We also got free breakfast, a picnic lunch (good for the beach), ice cream, and our choice of two attractions. We picked Avonlea and Rainbow Valley, and had a relatively good time.

The hotel is really more of a motel, all on one story except for the pool/dining area, where some rooms are on floors.

If you have ever been to a Comfort Inn/Quality Inn/Clarion property etc. you pretty much have an idea of this hotel. It's alright, but nothing special.

The Quality Inn in Mayfield was a great base from which to explore the Island. We went in the last week of June for their Family Fun package and felt the value was excellent. It included admission to your choice of two of the many area attractions , hotel room, breakfasts , ice cream cones and a wonderful picnic lunch packed in a cooler for a family of four. ( see link for all info http://www.-------------------------------------) The rooms are very clean and the grounds were well looked after with tennis court , horse shoe pits and small playground with large play field and horse cart rides. The indoor pool was great and had a nice sunny outdoor patio. We were less than 10 minute drive to the Beach and attractions in Cavendish. I would definitely recommend this hotel. They have cottages available for rent on the property as well but we did not have a opportunity to see inside them. I would also recommend taking the time to visit the Brackley Beach DriveIn theatre- it was about a 20 minute drive from the hotel but it was great, We were able to treat our kids to their first old fashion drive experience, which is getting very rare. The prices were reasonable even at the food bar and it was very family-oriented. Avonlea Village and Rainbow Valley were the 2 atttractions we visited on the package and our kids (4& 6 years) loved them both. PEI is a wonderful destination and we will be returning!!!
