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

My partner and I recently (June 2015) stayed at the Ascendence Harbourside Mansion B & B in Halifax. We had booked the "Royal Suite" as a splurge, hoping for a relaxing, romantic two day stay. Unfortunately, as soon as we arrived, we quickly discovered this would not be the case. The house is neither harbourside (it is a street back... 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

My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at this B&B. We really enjoyed our time here and would stay again. We were upgraded to the Royal Suite which was absolutely gorgeous!!! Looks like a room out of a magazine! We also really liked the big soaker tub and was really romantic. The breakfasts were home cooked, fresh and different... More

Our 5 night stay at Ascendence was absolutely fabulous!! The owners Katherine and Daniel were amazing. They are so inviting and accommodating. We stayed in the Royal Suite and it was great! We enjoyed the delicious breakfast prepared for us and great chats around the breakfast table from guest near and far. Will definitely stay again!!!

We were very pleased with our room, The Auditor's Suite, and surprised at how cozy and soundly we slept, as it is close to the harbor. The owners are very helpful and willing to accommodate any requests. Breakfast was beautifully presented and exactly on time & coffee, tea & water were readily available at any time. We enjoyed visiting with... More
