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

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
