Location is great, walking distance to the wharf, shopping and restaurants. The room was a good size. The bathroom was extremely small and only a shower. But it is a Heritage property so understandable not a lot of space. Lots of stairs to get to your room. Staff were wonderful. The breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Expresso... More

We stayed here for two nights during our visit to PEI. The place is manned by University students, so there is assistance for carrying those suitcases up to the second or third floor. There is always someone on duty to help with any questions. The breakfast had good selections. Fresh Coffee is available 24/7 from the large Keurig machine in... More

I love heritage properties so was really excited about staying at this property but it was sadly disappointing. The room itself didn't feel very clean and the standard of the rennovation was very cheap. The advertised airconditioning was a small noisy freestanding airconditioning unit with the vent piped out the window of the room. The toilet was running constantly when... More

Very spacious and comfortable room. The bathroom was a bit small, but this is an old house so what can you expect? The staff at Hillhurst is what made the visit memorable, especially Annick and Quentin. They were most accommodating in recommending restaurants, making reservations for us and generally making sure that we were comfortable. The breakfasts were great with... More

Wow, what can I say. No complaints what so ever. The rooms have been have been brought back to life with great taste and comfort. The staff goes well above on any request we had. Excellent breakfast choice from salmon&bagels to eggs/omelets. Located a few blocks from everything downtown and the harbor. The only issue might be the tight parking... More

We'd definitely stay here again. Within walking distance of restaurants, shops and the harbor. They offer a hot breakfast, made to order. Rooms are spacious. Bed is comfortable. Staff helpful and accessible. My only real criticism was the lack of air conditioning. They have individual plug in units that are extremely noisy and prevent deep REM sleep. Please invest in...

At a walking distance from harbour and restaurants, this inn offers fully remodeled rooms in a historic building (We stayed in the Sydney room) . Staff is very friendly and helpful; This inn is so popular that breakfast room is very crowded in the morning, causing slow service. The single coffee machine generates pretty long line

When I can't find a single thing to complain about you've got pretty much perfection. And this is it. We spent some time with the owner and he's committed to excellence. He succeeds.
