My daughter and I just got back from a three night trip to Halifax. Lord Nelson hotel was beautiful, the lobby is lovely and the room was comfortable, lots of space and clean. It's a 10-15 minute walk to Dalhousie campus and centrally located. The staff was friendly and very helpful,we asked for restaurant recommendations which were fabulous. We highly... More

Great hotel. The reception staff is very friendly as are the wait staff in the restaurant. Seconds away from Halifax's public gardens, the hotel is showing its age and is in dire need of renovations. I recommend it for the charm, but do caution about cost as downtown Halifax has may other hotels - much newer - with better value.... More

We stayed in a very small, stuffy smelling room on the fourth floor over looking the entrance to the hotel. Unfortunately the room's climate control only lets you run the fan when its heating or cooling the room. Otherwise we could have probably blocked the noise and cleared out the smell just by running the fan. The fourth floor is... More

One could easily mistake the Lord Nelson for an upscale hotel . It isn't. Top hotels distinguish themselves by their exemplary customer service. This is where the Lord Nelson is unmasked as a budget hotel with delusions of grandeur. Problems in upscale hotels are resolved without hesitation. Here, it seemed a bother. Front desk staff seemed untrained and defensive; management... More

Stayed last year in a 3 bedroom suite (adjoining set of rooms) for a group of 8 women for a getaway night. We rebooked this suite of rooms for this year for November 15, 2014. We called to confirm our reservation on Wednesday November 12th. On Friday November 14th, the day before we were to arrive, hotel reservation staff cancelled... More

I loved everything about this hotel. The location was great, the staff were great, the room was clean and the gym was great. I found the noise in the hallway early in the morning a little annoying. However, this happens often in many hotels. I really wish these big hotels would invest in soundproof rooms....so we could have a nice... More
