Always enjoying staying at the Lord Nelson. It been many years since I had the chance, and I was delighted with how the charm and service has stayed the same on my recent 2 night stay. My room was extra clean, quiet and house-keeping was top notch. Every single employee is delightful to deal with, from your arrival to departure.... More

Historic hotel, nothing shabby about it. Marble and polished brass. Very clean, Higher end toiletries, friendly, genuine and helpful staff. Good restaurant on site and it is in the middle of Halifax so within walking distance to great pubs and shopping. Close to the hospital if you have to stay for a family illness and good rates for that.

Recent renovations to restaurant destroyed ambiance and uniqueness of this place. Inexpensive furnishings open concept, but biggest disappointment is music. If you like a Bob Dillon harmonica tune with a high pitched continuous tone blasting in your ears while you chat..... This will be your spot. It's like sitting next to a train crossing. They need SAT radio. Food is... More

My wife; mother-in-law, and I stayed there this past summer and were VERY impressed with the service; the food; the location, and the decor. It's a perfect location for out-of-town guests because it's so central to all the great things Halifax has to offer: theatre, movies, restaurants, green space, and shopping.

Everything about this place turned out to be better than expected. The park across from the hotel was the biggest secret in Nova Scotia. The rooms were larger than expected. The staff was delightful to deal with and regularly went beyond their duty to help. The location near excellent restaurants and shops was perfect. Anyone going to Halifax should plan... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Lord Nelson Hotel. It is an older hotel that has maintained its classic charm with modern updates. Our room was nicely appointed and the hotel is in a wonderful central location. Many fantastic cafés and restaurants are located in walking distance. The hotel is attached to a mall that has a movie theatre, so... More

The Lord Nelson has surpassed our expectations in every way. The staff are efficient and very pleasant. The consideration given to people who are in Halifax for health reasons is second to none. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are spotless and well equipped with quality products. When the hotel was remodelled the best ol the old was saved which... More

I stayed in this hotel twice, the last time being in 2013. It has an old classy feel to it. So, expect the rooms and decor to be old fashioned but quaint. I found it over priced compared to what it had to offer. It is conveniently located in downtown Halifax.

We stayed at the Lord Nelson after finding a very good rate on Trip Advisor/Travelocity and good reviews. I had not stayed here in probably over 30 years. It was excellent! The hotel has been modernized without losing it's old world charm. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and everything throughout the hotel was spotless. The location couldn't... More
