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

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.

close to beach, shopping

Posted Jul 21, 2016
Pros: closeness to shopping and restaurants
Cons: carpet in room needs to be cleaned,,,spilt some water on floor and when drying it up with white towel it became light brown...
Location: lots to do nearby,,,beach and walking trail across the street,,,shopping and restaurants all close by
overall a great experience , closeness to malls, restaurants, waliking trails, along with comfy bed and a great morning breakfast, which was free , all made for a good choice

Yours to discover

Posted Jul 16, 2016
Where do i start? We arrived close to midnight. People at front desk were smiling. A warm welcome Room is big enough. we got a nice warm breakfast every morning. We had to wait a few times for refresh if coffee and eggs. May be a little more fruit would do great Water at front desk is a nice perk. Specially with those slices of orange Not a lot of parking but location is okay. Comfy beds. Great staff. Would i come back again? Definitly!

Excellent hotel.

Posted Jul 15, 2016
Pros: It's a slightly older hotel but definitely well taken care of, with many homey touches. We have no complaints.
Location: Easy to get to Halifax (approx.15 min)
Very nice, comfortable, quiet hotel. The staff is all very friendly & helpful. Large room, comfy beds.I don't have GPS, so I had a little trouble finding it the 1st time, but after that the staff cheerfully helped us get around.

Nice entrance need at least two chairs in room

Posted Jul 11, 2016
Pros: Entrance only
Cons: Breakfast
Two chairs in room as people do not like to sit on bed. Breakfast was very poor. Safe food handling was not used And no one was available to keep an idea on supply needs. We did not have our second breakfast there

Nice room, real comfy beds, plenty of towels, nice courteous staff, breakfast was better than just continental. Was supposed to be hot but mostly cold when we got to it. The only elevator was not working for 2 days which made it hard for seniors with heart condition to go up and down 3 flights. However staff helped with luggage and were very apologetic. All in all was a pleasant stay with only the elevator being an issue.
