We enjoyed staying here for the first 2 nights of our trip to Canada- it was adequate. Great lobby and friendly staff- were our first impressions. Secure parking included in hotel rate- great- as was free wifi- fantastic! Our room was comfortable and with great views on the 9th floor. Breakfast was disappointing- we were given breakfast vouchers (a bit... More

The hotel, staff and location were excellent. We parked our car and could walk to everything. Which was very convenient. Would not have changed anything and would definitely recommend it, We would come back to Lord Nelson again.

The Lord Nelson is the perfect place to stay in Halifax. It is right across the street from the Public Gardens which are beautiful. The Hotel is old fashioned but the rooms have been modernized and are very comfortable. A wonderful hot buffet breakfast comes with your room and omelets and eggs are made to order. I love all the...

As soon as we walked in we knew we were going to enjoy this hotel, quality from top to bottom, the reception staff were excellent and all very helpful.

We stayed here for our first night in Nova Scotia and it was a great choice. The hotel is located just across the street from the public gardens, which are beautiful. It is around the corner from the center of town, which has shopping and restaurants, and just about four or five blocks from the wharf. The lobby is classically... More
