staying at this B&B was one of the worst experiences I've had while traveling.First of all if you need anything or have a question you have to phone some who relays the message to a property manager. The bed was very comfortable. When I phoned for a remote that would work with the tiny T.V. in the room I was... More

Have to say this was a wonderful experience . We have seldom experienced anyone going so out of there way to make things perfect for us. We arrived very late and still were treated with extreme curtsey and respect. The room was like home , the bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and our hostess Samantha totally friendly, helpful... More

I think the best part of our stay was Katherine the owner who was very outgoing and enthusiastic. I happened to leave a pair of favorite sandals at the B&B and did not realize that I had lost them until I had returned home to Texas. I was thrilled when the sandals were eventually mailed back to me. I had... More

The B&B was a nice location for our stay in Halifax. You need a car to get downtown late at night if that's where you want to go. The price was a bit high but it included free Wifi and breakfast. The owner was very nice and generous and prepared a lunch package since we had to leave early in... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Ascendence Harbourside Mansion. It is an old house, a little tired, but much loved. The owners are young, enthusiastic, and fall all over themselves to make your stay enjoyable. Our room was small but clean and adequate. The beds were good and our breakfast was prepared with care. The bi-modal reviews are hard to... More

We took a chance on this B&B even though others had panned it. Our first mistake. It is 10 minutes from Halifax, but there is NO view of the water. The musty smell in our bathroom was just the beginning. We could hear the owners children running upstairs until 10:00PM, and then the morning clatter of breakfast prep at 7:15... More

If we would go back we wold certainly book there again. We got excellent tips for our stay in Halifax and took the bus going downtown. The rooms and... More

We stayed at the Ascendence the first and last night of our round trip. We were going to book it over booking.com but then decided to contact them directly. We got a very good offer from Katherine and Dan and booked our stay directly with them. They also organize a shuttle to and from the airport if required. The Ascendence... More

The room was comfortable and clean. We were upgraded by booking directly with the hosts. The crepes for breakfast were delicious. The hosts provided good information on places to see for our short time in the city.
