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.
