Qualified recommendation

Posted Jul 24, 2015
We only stayed at the Waverley for one night but were in most ways very happy with our choice. The hotel had an old-fashioned elegance that we really enjoyed and we liked the neighborhood. The only downside was that the breakfast, a very mediocre continental spread, was served in what looked more like a church basement than a room in a hotel. It was not up to par with the rest of the hotel.

Close to everything

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: Location. Character.
Cons: An extra floor fan in some of the rooms that get a bit hot.
Location: Downtown on Barrington. Close to the Citadel, cathedrals, the waterfront, Alexander Keith's brewery, restaurants... everything, really.
Great little inn with lots of history and character. Close to the Citadel, the waterfront and many excellent restaurants. We were on the top floor and found the room quite hot even with the fan on and it wasn't terribly hot out. Perhaps a room on a lower floor or with bigger windows would have been a bit more comforable. The included breakfast hit the spot, with quite a lot of choice for a breakfast room. Very friendly staff throughout the inn, from front desk to housekeeping to the breakfast room.

Great decor and location

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: The furnishings, the breakfast, free tea and coffee and friendly staff.
Cons: Nil
Location: Walk to town and VIA railway station. The Public Gardens, the Harbour area, the Citadel were outstanding.
The hotel is within walking distance of the VIA railway station and the harbour area. The furnishings at the hotel are amazing. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Free tea and coffee available was a bonus. Loved the four poster beds.

Great hotel, centrally located

Posted May 27, 2015
Pros: Staff very friendly, Rooms very clean. Hotel had a quaint historic feel to it. Felt like stepping back to the late 19th century!
Cons: Perhaps breakfast could be earlier. Say 6:30 or 7 instead of 7:30.
Location: Location was perfect as it was less than 5 mins to my conference at St. Mary's University.
Despite a short stay the experience at the Waverley in was very pleasant and more than met my expectations.

Loads of character in a convenient location

I loved this hotel. We had originally booked for one night but ended up staying 4 nights. It's a character hotel with a nice breakfast included aND free parking. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Beautiful Historic Hotel

Posted May 21, 2015
Great staff, gorgeously appointed rooms, and close to everything! Only minor consideration is if your room faces the street, music from the bar across the street could make it a little tricky to sleep for sensitive people.

A Great Place To Stay!

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: The history of the Inn greets you at every turn and keeps it relaxed. It's directly across from Bearly's , a top notch blues bar with plenty of talent
Cons: It's a historic Inn that's been around for a very long time, but is in very great shape. If any thing could be improved, I would say a longer stay.
Location: Located in the South end, walking distance to the train station and pier 21, farmers market, and waterfront. The hospitals are a five minute drive
This Inn is not for everybody, but if you like history, storied buildings, and comfortable beds, as well as a filling breakfast, this could be the place for you.

Location: Great bars and eateries nearby. I would especially recommend the Henry House (just a few metres away) for food and drink.
Great stay, as always. I was actually hoping that I was snowed in just so I could stay longer.

Au cœur d'Halifax

Accueil souriant, personnel attentionné. Idéalement placé pour découvrir Halifax et Dartmouth à pied ou en Bus.
