We stayed down there in Aug for a week and we could not believe how much the staff care about us. Ever morning there was always a great smile and hello. Breakfast was great, always hot. The waffles were my favorite. Kimberley the Manager went out of her way one day for me in true down east fashion.So thanks again... More

Just because the name changed doesn't mean anything changed. Tara & staff are still the friendly, accommodating and polite people they always have been for years here. New owners should be happy with the gems they inherited with buying this place. Can't wait to visit Halifax and stay there again! Thx for a great stay!!!

Loved the hotel. One of the Top stays on our east coast trip. It was clean, modern, and spacious. If ever back again will automatically choose this hotel again. We would have stayed in one of their other locations but discovered them too late in our trip.
