A wonderfully welcoming hotel, where the staff can't do enough to be helpful. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean room, and excellent location. Were it not for the breakfast, which we found restricted in choice, we'd have given it five stars.

The Great George is the best hotel experience we have ever had, and we have had many hotel experiences throughout our world travels. This is our second time here, and as before, the friendly and efficient service couldn’t have been better. It is the personal touch, very clean well decorated facilities, wonderful breakfast, and delicious chocolate chip cookies are the...

When I entered the room, there was music playing which was a nice touch. You get one chance to make a first impression, and the Great George nailed it. Great location, price was comparable, room was comfortable and elegant. I look forward to staying there again.

Spent two nights at The Great George during a road trip with my daughters. This was our first visit to Charlottetown. The hotel is absolutely exquisite and perfectly comfortable. The character of what I assume was once a grand private home has been carefully preserved. The common area draws you in, and we enjoyed relaxing there after our afternoon excursions...

Thank you for your kind review. The main building of The Great George Hotel was originally a shop which carried everything from rope to parasols. It was later converted in to a hotel and has remained one for 140 years. But the feeling of a home is what we aspire to in many ways. We hope to see you and...

I really enjoyed my stay here, although I did have to go to another hotel for a few days as they were sold out but went back. I was in Charlottetown for business for a total of 11 days. Beds are very comfortable and staff were lovely. Going back for another week in April and again in May. Can't wait...

This is a wonderfully appointed, wonderfully located, wonderfully staffed gem. It's within easy walking distance of all the Charlottetown sites and an easy drive to anywhere else on the Island. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The attention to detail is exceptional. Sadly, I had to cut my stay short due to the weather (was driving back to Boston...

The hotel is very quaint. Beautiful foyer, lovely historic feeling rooms with the comfiest bedding. The breakfast staff went beyond and above the call of duty with my dietary restrictions. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the island. A true treasure.

I come to PEI for business on a regular base and I've stayed several times at the Great George. The rooms and especially the beds are very comfortable. The service is great and I love the afternoon cookies offered. The only drawback is the variety offered for breakfast. Basically it's some bread, muffins, some fruit and coffee. In my opinion...

Great hotel, had a free upgrade to a suite room. Excellent parking, good buffet breakfast and available tea/coffee all day. Excellent location, would definitely stay here again. Great character, although you could tell it was very old!

We stayed here New Years Eve as we were flying out early the next morning. The staff were phenomenal, the Inn is historic yet we kept. From the freshly baked cookies to the reception with the terrific young lady playing guitar and singing, it exceeded expectations. Because we were leaving before breakfast the following morning, they had a bagged breakfast...
