This home is handy to many attractions. The problem is that it is very unkept and cluttered. The steps to the bedrooms are very steep. The bathroom is very small and it is difficult to share such limited space. The breakfasts were adequate and basic. Parking is not always available. I will choose somewhere else on my next visit to...

Regular guests who know Heart's Content were amazed by this posting as the comments are so negative. This guest's review does not mention that I did not charge her for one of the three nights she stayed.There were extenuating circumstances surrounding this her arrival as my first one of the season. My opening dates are traditionally mid to late May...

Perfect for our purposes. We needed overnight accommodation in Charlottetown, close to the historict district. This was a bargain, and Joan is a dear lady!

My host greeted me upon arrival and showed me around the home. The home is pleasing from the outside. It is across from a park. 3 or 4 blocks (5-8min) from the waterfront and all the action. The location was perfect. My room was mid-sized with a daybed. The bed was a full or queen and very comfortable. Breakfast which...

In prime downtown locations like mine, the price of a room with private bath starts at $100 a night and goes up. The cost for this guest in a room with a queen size bed and bathroom shared with one couple across the hall (who had their own vanity in the room) was $50 (CAN) per night, breakfast included. I...

Heart's Content is truely a part of Charlottetown's history. At 149 years old it still has all the comforts of home. With mostly period furnishing you feel you may have stepped back in time. Heart's Content is comfy and has a great location. We did find the bathroom a bit tight. My husband is 6'4" and found it awkward, but...

What to say about Hearts Content? Firstly, Joan is the sweetest most wonderfully kindhearted person ever! My boyfriend and I stayed at this B&B mostly because it was close to many activities and because you couldn't get a better price then the one she offered. Joan and I bonded almost instantly over numerous emails before we even checked in. She...

A friend and I stayed at Joan's B&B on Aug. 17th & 18th of this year and loved every minute of our stay there. The rooms were Victorian in style, clean, large and comfortable. Joan was more than accommodating and very helpful. She's worked hard to make it nice and given that it's so affordable, we would go back in...

At Heart's Content, guests are encouraged to bring fruit, yogurt or any other of their favourite breakfast items to the table to enjoy along with the muffins, scones, cereals that are included in the cost per night (under $55 US). By supplying a hearty but basic breakfast I am able to keep my rates very reasonable. I have considered offering...
