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.

First of all I want to thank Katherine, Danny and Austin for allowing eight crazy people into their home. The Hali meets Cali friends reunion occupied the entire mansion for two nights in July. The kindness and hospitality provided by this young couple was outstanding - and I have stayed in many B&B's. From the moment we arrived with a... More

The proprietor was very helpful in directing me to the address even after getting lost in which was not far from the location. Very warm reception at arrival! Nice breakfast arrangements as well! Great location close to all amenities!

Had booked a week here. Each breakfast was unique, excellent presentation with a starter and the main course. On the last day, we choose what we wished to eat. Both Katherine and Danny went out of their way to make certain our stay was enjoyable. Katherine introduced each new arrival at breakfast and made everyone comfortable. Katherine was a wealth...

I hate to steal someone else's headline but it just fit. We called ahead to secure a play pen for our 18-month old son. We were told by the male owner (I am horrible with names) that he would have it set up in our room. We arrive at 7:30pm(ish) to find out that the female owner (K?) didn't know... More

My Wife and I spent a full week at the Acendence Harbourside Mansion B&B in Halifax. Katherine and Danny made sure we had everything we needed before asking for it. We had a different delicious breakfast morning with a starter and a main coarse. On the last day we could request anything we wanted which was very nice epically since... More

Scene setting: I arrived at the normal check-in time, around 5:30 pm. (Read description of driveway from other reviews--all true. Danny will sometimes, but not always, offer to help you park or move your car). Parked where I could. The front door was wide open, but not a soul was in sight. I wandered for a while: Hello? Hello? Creepy.... More

Perfectly situated, just outside Halifax. One bus ride to downtown, so no need to worry about parking (although it was never an issue). Katherine and Danny are great people, and breakfasts were huge and delicious. Katherine is a wealth of information regarding the history of Halifax, and what to do and see. Room was great, comfortable, and we would definitely... More

The stay was human as much as there was a commercial side to it, which we did not find in any hotel before. Warm and friendly people are managing. The surroundings and driving access do demand some skill but this is part of the original land planning which is quite old. Finally, I will remember this place as very pleasing... More

This B and B is in an old hillside house which may once have had a good view of the harbour, but does not now as the view is obstructed by a more recent building having been built in front of it. Parking is limited and the driveway very steep and angled as you approach the parking area. The hosts... More
