Historic hotel in the heart of Halifax

4 out of 5

The hotel is excellently located, being in the heart of historic Halifax on one of the main streets. It also unusually has a car park which was useful for us as we had a hire car. The interior is beautiful, with antique furniture, paintings, chandeliers and stained glass; our room had a four poster bed which was very comfortable. Breakfast was served downstairs, but when we went (admittedly at half past nine) some food items were limited. The staff we encountered were all friendly and helpful, overall making this a very pleasant stay. Definitely recommended.

Cons: The breakfast - we were expecting more fruit and gluten free/dairy free options.
Helpful staff, quiet, calm ambience and within walking distance to the harbour and the town centre.

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

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.

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

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.

Beautiful Historic Hotel

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.
