4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It's was girl's weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room was clean, and accommodating. View wasn't so great (air conditioning units) and rooms were out dated but all in all it was close to where we were going and we had a great time!

Immediately greeted by Matt upon arrival into an opulent lobby. It was midnight and pouring rain when we arrived so we were wet, tired and just wanted to rest. Check in was uneventful but s.l.o.w. Our room was luxurious but small and the beds were doubles not queens. The bathroom was clean but very tiny (had to shuffle around the... More

nice location in Halifax, across from the Public Gardens and 10 min walk to the wharf. Staff was helpful, rooms comfortable with Aveda products. (towels are small and not that soft). In-room coffee maker and fridge with complimentary water.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the start of our hols, and as we'd stayed previously we knew we were in for a treat. Once again we found this hotel friendly, comfortable and its location means it's close to the harbour and the Citadel. The staff were lovely, especially Jasper when our cases were mislaid - it's...

We stayed at the Lord Nelson for two nights. The doormen were so welcoming and knew every question we asked about the city, points of interests. They inquired about what we liked to do and accommodated their choices based on our answers. The front desk service was 'fun and light'. The rooms were perfect. It was a great experience and...

We were very pleased with our room at the Lord Nelson. The staff is friendly and the hotel is spotless. The public areas are beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay and being so close to the citadel and to the public gardens is a definite plus.

I had an average experience there. Nothing special. Parking was over priced and our room was facing a wall. I have had better experiences for same price. But it is ok!! Staff was really kind. The bell man, Mathiew (?) and the reception lady looked after us very well. We arrived early and the lady allowed us to check in... More

Within an easy walk of the old town area this lovely hotel embraces charm and excellent service. Over the road is a beautiful park, around the some good eating options. A short walk will take you to the sea front and boardwalk. Rooms and food of a very high standard.

Everything was great except parking was very expensive. Breakfast not included in standard suite. 2 tier Internet. Free tier was reasonably fast. Good walking distance to harbour. Across from beautiful garden. Right by citadel. Clean.
