    What a serene lovely place to stay! My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and just loved it there! Across the street from. The ocean, a view on the lake property were breathtaking! Great place to walk or just relax on the chairs outside with our glass of wine! Staff couldn’t have been more welcoming or friendly! Thanks so much for a lovely time there! JMMW

  • 2,0.Poor

    Property looked nice from a distance. Cost $32 to enter the area. Room on 3rd floor no elevator. Room had no Tv, no Coffee maker, no telephone, no radio, just 2 chairs, one bed one dresser one small window. Bathroom very small with no shelves, no hooks for clothing to hang. Next day no bed made, no new towels, no room service at all. View from window in room 19 showed exterior damage on next door dormer, missing shingles. Staff friendly, Food very over-priced. $26 for one porkchop with one scoop of potato and one beet cut into 4. Advertised price $214 was charged $219 / night. This place badly needs new management.

    Dalvay by the Sea Hotel is an absolutely beautiful place to stay! My lifelong friend and I always take a couple of days to get together every summer.Since we needed to stay on PEI because of Covid, we decided to try Dalvay by the Sea Hotel! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our time there very very much! I is a grand place to stay! Most times it would be fully booked for the whole summer with tourists from away, but not this summer, again because of COVID , PE Islands jump at the chance to stay at this beautiful old landmark, you will not regret it!

    If you enjoy 19th century luxury living (which we do - of course that means no TV or radio, but they do have free wifi), amazing place with beautiful varnished wood fittings and frames everywhere, impeccable service, massive stoked fireplaces - which were necessary because we stayed there at the very end of their season (27 October) and the rooms were distinctly cool. Lovely grounds with Dalvay Lake and the sea beaches of PEI National park 10 minutes' walk away.

    We loved everything about the Dalvay! The staff were exceptional, going above and beyond in every way. They were all incredibly kind and helpful. The hotel itself is stunning with plenty of space to relax, sit by the fire, grab a drink, read a book, enjoy a good meal... we almost never left! And the location is perfect. Only 25 minutes from the airport, it's quiet and secluded but also close enough to downtown when you wanted to get out for a bit. And the walk to the beach was lovely. We adored everything about our stay and we will certainly be back!

    The building was magnificent. The staff was more than helpful. I would like to have seen each of the rooms in period decor, not just mine. It was not swimming weather but the beaches were very accessible and the facilities better than most.
