3/5 Okay

The property has old world charm and most of the staff, particularly diningroom staff, was friendly and accommodating. There was no sound suppression between rooms. Our room needed some attention by the maintenance and cleaning staff such as dust and debris behind the furniture and the drapes couldn't be closed properly. When checking out, we were not asked how our stay was. We saw two members of upper manager without masks in the lobby and library breakfast area while the guests and staff were required to be masked. We do want to emphasize that the diningroom staff was friendly and accommodating.

Nice place and the personnel were simply just perfect. However, we were very disapointed that the owners and personnel were not wearing masks at all in this period of COVID. This is a shame.

This beautiful 1895 Inn is a beautiful walk in history. The staff are amazing. Food was fantastic. The provincial beach is the best on the island.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We stayed for two nights, and our first evening dinner was fantastic! Both the food and service was incredible. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The service at breakfast the next morning was terrible. It was so bad that the table behind us left after waiting 40 minutes for their food, which only showed after they left. Later that day, we ordered a charcuterie board, and it came without any crackers or napkins. Don't bother getting a room with a 'view'. Our view was only accessible via a tiny window, which had a noisy portable AC unit attached. The front lawn is covered in goose feces, so you cannot sit and enjoy the view there either. Overall, a very disappointing experience. We will not be back.
