Ok hotel for the price

Posted Aug 26, 2016
Pros: Pros: - Hot breakfast included - Cost effective rates - Close to a grocery store - Clean - Staff were friendly - Close to airport.
Cons: Cons: - Finish work in the room could use a bit of improvement. - Internet connection very slow (likely people on Netflix).
Location: Across the street from a Superstore, 20 minutes from the airport, and 7-8 minutes from the Mic Mac Mall.
The hotel seems to be renovating to improve the property, which is nice, but some of the little details need some work. Like the mollies that were still visible in the wall above my bead. Nothing terrible, just picky little things. The walls were either a bit thin, or the couple in the room adjacent to us were overly enthusiastic. The breakfast that was included wasn't spectacular but sufficient, particularly when you consider the price. Location is just across the street from a Superstore in case you want to pick up any supplies, and room has a mini fridge. Also very close (20 min drive) from the Halifax airport.

Hotel was very nice, and we were pleasantly surprised by the breakfast in the morning. There was a great variety of hot and cold items, eggs, sausage or bacon, toast, beans, potatoes, waffles, fruit etc. The hotel was clean, not a great view from the room, but we were there to explore the city, not stay in our room.

Work in progress

Posted Aug 1, 2016
Pros: Breakfast was very good!! An variety of breads, cereals, jams. Nice start to the day! Eggs with either bacon, sausage, or ham (1 each day)
Cons: Ran out of eggs.....everyday! Always had to wait for more to be brought out. Simple cleaning, dusting, floors..etc. Keep working on the renovations.
Location: Close to shopping and major highways for travelling
Hotel was in close proximity to where I wanted to be in Dartmouth. I could tell that they were working to renovate the hotel, but there are a few little things that can be done in the meantime. Desk lamp worked intermittently. When turning on the lamp beside the bed, there was a dust web....you could tell it hadn't been dusted lately. Desk chair did not fit under the desk and was extremely uncomfortable. When we returned to our room after a day outing, we could tell that the floor had not been swept.

Dear Debbie, Thank you, for taking the time to complete our online survey. Breakfast has to be constantly replenished and sometime it does go re-stock. I want to apologize for you having to wait for your eggs. I also want you to know that will address the housekeeping issues. Thank you, for your business and we hope to see you again, soon. Sincerely, Patricia

Pros: Away from the busy Halifax Harbour area. Great breakfast.
Location: Location worked for us
We had problems with our toilet - staff came and fixed, but it continued to have problems. Parking was a nuisance. Otherwise all was good.

Very Nice

Posted Jul 24, 2016
The decor is Victorian - instead of spending money to try and make the building into something it's not they have embraced it as a theme. Comfortable room Excellent breakfast Excellent staff Nice pub Parking spaces limited A nice place to stay!

Good hotel, nothing fancy.

Posted Jul 23, 2016
Pros: Laminate flooring in room made it feel homey compared to usual carpet in mid-price range hotels.
Cons: Rest of hotel was decent if a little dated but facilities were clean and in working order.
Location: Superstore and food nearby, really don't know much else as it was a one night stay in between destinations.
Room was surprisingly pleasant - had laminate flooring instead of usual standard carpeting. Decent location for price but if you are looking to be in the midst of action this is not the hotel for you.
