Environment and friendliness of staff!
I did not have more time to stay!!!!
Because we were not expecting stairs they upgraded our rooms to a cottage.It was absolutely
Great location, right inside the park, minutes to the beach and trail. Breakfast was great & the room is very clean.
slow and unstable Wi-Fi. A/C in the room was very loud.
Need to change rugs, dirty.
Coffee maker in room.
We appreciated the quiet surroundings, and access to the beach.
Our reception: It was less than pleasant with a significant discrepancy between our booking price and property price. Apparently they were unaware that we had a child with us (the reason we booked a room with a double bed and a single bed), and charged her as an adult. I could understand if we need an extra bed/cot, but we didn't. I was made to feel that I was lying when I said that we had indicated on our booking that we had a 3rd person, a child, aged 15. The other significant price discrepancy took me a few minutes to figure out . . . it turns out that the property had included the breakfast option automatically, not giving us a choice! This didn't sit well with me. In the end with much discussion, the staff gave us the booking price. The accommodations: It certainly has charm and character, however it felt like we were in someone's private home as it had no sound barriers between rooms. We felt like we had to be super quiet so as not to bother other guests. The fridge provided in the room did not cool enough to be able to use, even on the coolest setting, and the freezer section would not freeze our ice packs. There were no "Do not Disturb" signs, so we were woken each of our 2 days with a knock on the door by housekeeping staff. Check-out: We have stayed at various hotels and other accommodations around the world and never have we come across a property that right out expected a tip from its guests for all of its staff. They actually wrote it out in the info. book in the room. This too, did not sit well with me. So when I paid the bill, there was no apparent way to get around the Tip option on the payment machine. It was awkward asking how to get around it. "Press 4". THEN the mood changed. I thanked the 2 ladies, and not one word did I receive back. No "Thank you for staying with us!", no "Have a nice day!". Nada. I even paused for a moment. Nothing.
This charming hotel is situated in Charlottetown. With a total of 14 accommodation units, this is a nice place to stay. This hotel does not accept pets.
