We stayed for two nights in this charming B&B at the beginning and end of our NS trip. Very close to Mount St Vincent University along the Bedford highway the B&B is not hard to find but the street it is on is very short and steep road and located just off the highway. It is also very close to... More

Although other reviewers had problems with cancellations online, I found that Katherine and Danny were especially understanding about our "last minute" rescheduling due to significant flight delays. I called several times to inform and update them on the situation, and they allowed us to shift our reservation to different days. It was a much needed gift in the midst of... More

We had a change of plans shortly before traveling to NS. I booked this B&B on Booking.com around 330pm EST and then changed my mind w/in 15m at around 345pm EST. There was no mention of their cancellation policy on the Booking.com website, although it did say that the policy is different with each room. We ended up staying at... More

The owners are very knowledgeable about the city and the historic events that went on through out the years, very friendly and courteous. They also provide great gluten free breakfasts, ask for the pancakes;)

We stayed for one night in this B&B and had a great time. We had the Royal room and it was clean, comfortable and has a good bed. Katherine was really friendly and told us a lot about the history of Halifax and the "must-see" places. After visiting Canada for almost three weeks, and had a lot of bacon and... More

On September 12th, we stayed at this B&B. It was horrible from the start. Katherine came running out the house with no shoes and when I made a comment about driveway. Big mistake! She went off on me. She stated we should be glad to stay in such a historical place. Then she proceeded to have her 10 year old... More

I must admit that when we first arrived at the Ascendence I was not amused to find out it was located off a steep laneway with very tight parking at the end of it. However once we got situated in the too small parking area we were relieved once Danny answered the door and greeted us with a cheerful smile.... More

Don't believe anything in the name. This is no mansion and "harborside" means there is an apartment building, a highway and a multi track railway switching yard between the house and the harbor. Description of what we booked was "the suite known as The Auditor General. The private bathroom includes a bathtub and hydromassage shower." It turns out that the... More

Our family spent our first night in Halifax with Katherine and Danny. Katherine was incredibly friendly and helpful about navigating our way around the city. The bedroom was spacious and the house is full of character. Breakfast was a delicious french toast and there was lots of lively conversation to go along with it.

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;...
