We were booked for a room with "private" bath but it was not ensuite. We didn't know that until we arrived. We are senior citizens and not up to getting dressed to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, or leaving private effects in an unlocked hall bath. No one was there when we came to check in;...

Our room was in a moderate state of disrepair (peeling wallpaper, leaning floors), but it was comfortable although my wife was pretty creeped out by the spiders in the corners of the ceiling. Ascendence was a little difficult for us to find; note that it's tucked away off the road -- keep a sharp lookout for the sign on the... More

Love this place. I recommend the Royal Room which has an en suite with jacuzzi tub. Perfect for two....or three! The only thing that would make this place better tonight would be a big party that we could crash

We booked on Expedia to be told on arrival that the B&B had cancelled their contract with Expedia as they were advertising it at the wrong rate and that our stay woule be based on room only. If we required breakfast then we would have to pay $10! We were only supposed to be there for two nights but had... More

I communicated w/Danny & Katherine in advance & booked w/them personally but my husband had emergency surgery & we had to cancel our dream vacation 10 days prior. They were great to work with, did not charge a fee. Nice folks

My husband and I have stayed at Harbourside twice now and Danny and Katherine have been nothing but accommodating. A fantastic breakfast and great conversations. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Katherine is very knowledgeable on the local history and is happy to give directions or suggestions on places to visit. It will be our regular accommodation every time we... More

We had booked 2 nights at this B&B. Because our camper was arriving 2 days late in Halifax we reluctantly had to extend our stay to 4 nights. The desaster started with our arrival. Kathrin, the owner, overwhelmed us with her incessant talk, trying to give us information but not giving us a chance to ask questions. If you are... More

To start, Catherine and her partner gave amazing service. They made sure we had everything, tended to special services that we required, and it was a very quiet and private place! Parking is a little tight, but other than that, I had a wonderful stay! Anytime I visit Halifax, the Ascendence B&B is where I'll be staying.

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
