Loved the historic honey feel. No coffee in room but it was right down the hall 24/7

A let down....

Posted Aug 28, 2014
We stayed for 4 nights during a university tour of Nova Scotia and were extremely disappointed with the Inn. We would have relocated but there was little else available during the busy summer season. The rooms are crowded with bulky antiques and not terribly comfortable and not terribly clean - there were a lot of cob webs hanging from the ceiling of our second room. Breakfast was very mundane. The staff seemed to be totally indifferent. For example, there was no offer to help with our bags up 3 flights of stairs. There was no effort to enhance the comfort of guests. For example, there was a bar sized frig in the room but nothing in it. At $200 per night I would have expected at least a few bottles of water. The best that can be said about the Inn is that the location is wonderful, very close to tourist attractions.

Beautiful historic inn

Posted Aug 10, 2014
We loved our stay .. beautiful rooms, walking distance to pier 21 and the harbour walk plus close to shopping and restaurants. For those that have trouble with stairs ask for a main floor room.

A Welcome Trip into the Past

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: If you like relaxing this is your place.
Cons: When I mentioned a squeaky bedspring, the desk clerk was quick to make a note about it.
Location: Located in a quiet neighborhood, the inn has a good Italian restaurant across the street and a cosy pub a stone's throw away.
The Waverley Inn is ideally suited to elderly people who are nostalgic. Moderately priced, very comfortable and relaxing, it has a lovely parlour where one can converse with other travelers who have a little free time. Their spacious breakfast room is a great way to start each day. The inn's staff are very attentive and will do anything to please. All of which means that the Waverley is better called an inn rather than a hotel. Moreover it is well situated on a main street not far from the railway station. People who love train travel will love this place, too.

easy walking distance in downtown Halifax

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: convenience to downtown and the funky decor
we have always loved staying at this hotel because we can park (free parking!) and walk every where, which is a real plus... stroll the boardwalk or up Spring Garden Road to the Public Gardens... this last trip however the full hot breakfast was not quite as sumptuous as in previous times, and I especially missed that bowl of cut fruit
