The resort is in a good location and is great for kids. Our only issue was that it seemed to need more TLC. The beds were worn out and the mattresses needed to be flipped or replaced. Also, there was no electricity in the bathroom. The rooms, however, were clean.

Thank you for staying with us. All of our mattresses have been replaced within the past year with Simmons Beautyrest pillowtops, which are hotel industry standard. This fall we are undertaking numerous improvements to parts of the property. Thank you for your kind comments for our housekeeping staff!
Best regards,
Doris

This hotel has old time charm and character. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was a suite so we had a fair amount of space between the sitting room and the bedroom. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet. If you like old world charm, this is a pretty good place to stay.

This old Victorian hotel was filled with charm and antiques. The floors and walls were crooked, adding to it's character. It was quiet and clean. There was a pool although we didn't get a chance to use it. A breakfast buffet was included but it closed early, however the waitress did offer to get anything else although we declined.

The cabins, which are part of Ingleside Resort. Were within walking distance from Cavendish beach with a paved walking path across the road from the resort. So for that reason alone I give this hotel top marks. With the closeness to Cavendish beach, it is also close to the other attractions including walking distance from the Dirt Shirt store.

The cabin/room is just the right size for a family of four. A bit cramped for a family larger than that. The pool was 10 feet deep! Which was great fun for my two boys who are strong swimmers.

The Wifi is the reason the resort was not able to secure an 'excellent' rating. It was passable during the day and unusable in the evening.

Thank you for staying with us. Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your vacation in Cavendish.

We have a variety of cottages to suit different needs, such as bachelor style for two persons, two bedrooms for a family of four and larger three bedrooms that can sleep up to six!

We understand the issue with the wifi. Although available in rural PEI, it is not very strong nor reliable. Our provincial government promises to increase the service to rural areas of PEI. In the meantime, we have hired a Bell engineer and hopefully we will have a solution soon.

I do hope we have the opportunity to host you and your family again.

Best regards,
Doris

We booked a stay after looking at pictures on line. The website advertised spacious rooms and a queen or two beds. The inn didn’t look like this. The rooms were super small. In ours especially, we had to open the door step in, close the door just to get around the bed. The bed was a double not a queen which I booked. The floor was tilted and I felt it wasn’t safe. The bathroom had no place for your toiletries. The room wasn’t the cleanest. I would not ever stay here again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our location. We have a variety of rooms, small ones with twins, a double or queen, plus we have three suites and three luxury gatehouse suites. The house is a 200 year old heritage home and as such, does tend to be a little crooked. With that being said, she has been standing for over 200 years and I can assure you, is quite safe. Our cleaning staff take great pride and care in the job they do. If there was an issue, we would have been pleased to correct it, had we been notified. Unfortunately the Inn is not a modern facility, but we love her the way she is.

Best regards,
Doris
