Not what we expected for the way it was described in the info. However, it was clean and comfortable and our hosts were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. A little difficult to find as street looks like a laneway between two parking areas.

I booked fast because i needed a place to stay but am i happy i did. Owners were friendly and very connaisseur of the surrounding in Halifax. Suggested good stuff to do. Others guess arrived and we had pleasant talk with everyone with Kathryn having great stories. Fantastic breakfast. A+

Home away from homePosted May 6, 2015 on Hotels
I had a couple of days over the weekend to explore the area and didn't feel like staying in a hotel. Saw this B&B and thought I'd give it a try. Dan and Catherine were very welcoming and we chatted about places to go and things we liked to do. It is like staying with friends - very welcoming with lovely interesting people to chat to. There was a little fridge and a kettle/coffee maker available any time. Also a little sitting room downstairs with a small library and games. Had a fabulous stay and was sorry to leave. The breakfasts were delicious too - set me up for the day. Much nicer than the free breakfasts you get in the chain hotels.

Excellent Hosts!Posted Apr 27, 2015
Pros: The Owners and historical design.
Ascendence Habourside Mansion B&B is a historical house that offers a taste of home design dating back in the 1800's. The owners are welcoming and very hospitable. The breakfast is excellent served warm and prepared with flair presented on real china. My only complaint would be that although we had non smoking room, we could still smell the cigarette smoke from another room. Overall though, I enjoyed my stay there!

Dear Doreen, Thank You for your review We're glad you enjoyed our historical house and the breakfast. Please note that our property is absolutely NON-SMOKING however sometimes guests smoke on the front porch instead of the smoking area away from the house and the smoke does come in thru the windows

Relaxing and restful inexpensive stayPosted Mar 6, 2015 on Hotels
Offered a very tranquil rest and sleep; I look forward to seeing it again in the daylight and when there is not so much snow around. Hosts are extremely friendly and ready to do whatever they can to ensure guest comfort.

Nice old mansionPosted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: Nicely redone old-fashioned mansion.
Cons: Hard to reach the couple who owned it, for example when we were trying to check out there was no answer on the three phone numbers we had for them.
Location: Easy to get to downtown Halifax via bus.
Beautiful room and furniture, somewhat chilly probably because it was so old. Somewhat noisy, the first night we were there we could hear people still talking at 3:30 am, the second night the doorbell rang multiple times around midnight. Good food, friendly couple who owned it.
