Um .. extremely disappointed. We thought the lady owner was very sweet. Our room was the double bed on the main floor. The bed was horrific. It squeaked like crazy! If you moved a finger it squeaked. The last told us we were getting a discounted price because of the season. She took $15 off the price when we spoke... More

It would be a great stay if you do not think the following are issues: 1. The titled issue is the most critical, especially if the guest is time-pressed. It will only get worse in snowy/icy condition, and or the vehicle is larger than a compact sized one. 2. The host will tidy PART of the room even with the... More

Nothing was too much trouble. Katherine & Danny are a delightful couple and very well informed about the delights of Halifax. Our room was quite comfortable. The breakfasts were very different every day, and quite delicious ( Thanks Justin!).

She was also a wealth of information about things to do, tonot bother doing and ways of getting around Halifax. Breakfast was specialized for my dietary needs, was in a lovely dining room,... More

I tried to come up with one negative comment just for balance--but I failed. My room was great--clean and comfortable. The hosts, Danny and Katherine, are very outgoing, friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and its history. And then there's the breakfasts--tasty and plenty says it all. I was in the area cycling for two days and one... More

The hosts of this BnB are wonderful people. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The mansion is old and full of character and close to Halifax's sites. Every morning started off with a delicious breakfast presented in the dining room where we spent time chatting with other guests.
