The Bad
While several guests noted this hotel's natural setting as a positive, a few guests felt that the hotel was isolated, particularly for those who were travelling back and forth to Charlottetown (a 35-minute drive away). A couple of guests felt that the hotel was difficult to locate. Some guests could not track the hotel in their GPS.

A handful of guests felt that the room rates were overly expensive. 

A few guests travelling with young children felt that the hotel was not family friendly, and suggested that it was more appropriate for golfers, adults or families with older children.
