We stayed here on a family vacation to Halifax in the summer. I had booked rooms over a month in advance and asked for 2 rooms on the same level (and then called to verify before arrival), only to have rooms on different levels, which was annoying. We have children, and one adult had to stay down when the kids... More

Clean and average for 3-stars. A/C blows right over the bed, clearly designed by someone who didn't have to sleep here. Close (by car) to central downtown area. Staff are friendly and responsive. Free WiFi and parking. Good place while passing through. Not a place to linger.

We chose this hotel after reading other reviews, and boy where they right! What a gem of a hotel. Located in a residential area just off the Armdale Roundabout, and a convenient, easy 15 minute drive (even in rush hour!) to the Halifax waterfront and downtown. The hotel sits on the bank of beautiful Chocolate Lake, and the views are... More

This place shows much nicer when you enter the lobby than when you go to your room. Maybe the 200 wing which we were in was not as nice as the rest of the hotel. The corridor along the room entrances almost seems like a motel since cars are parked just on the other side of it. The carpet in... More

This fine hotel is situated about a 10 minute drive from downtown Halifax. My room overlooked the picturesque Chocolate Lake (a water filled quarry). The breakfast area is wonderful including outdoor seating. Drawbacks include limited parking and small bathroom.

I chose this hotel as it offered free parking and wifi. When we arrived at the hotel, the reservation agent noticed we were staying for four nights so she put us into a room on the 9th floor with a perfect view of the lake. The hotel is unusual as it is not right downtown but in a residential area... More

Stayed here 2 nights. Hotel was easy to find and had great services including buffet breakfast and bar with option to eat outside on the deck. Front desk staff were very knowledgeable providing attraction suggestions for the Halifax area. Our 7th floor room was clean and spacious. On the downside, the bathroom fan didn't work (a common problem) and on... More

This hotel was great! The bed were comfortable and the staff were warm and friendly. The continental breakfast was delicious, and hot and refilled quickly. Great views. We had fun in the pool and in the games room!

Great hotel with wonderful amenities. Gluten free options for breakfast and at restaurant. Lovely views of lake. Location just outside downtown Halifax is a great place to stay to visit the downtown and to travel to other areas in the Region to enjoy beautiful Nova Scotia. Experience was excellent. Just a small problem with unclean grout in walls of shower... More

Wonderful rooms, great staff, sweet chocolate lab, fabulous food - order the linguini - and spectacular views! Ask for a lake side room and swim in the lake - seriously! There is plenty of free parking and in a nice neighborhood. I would recommend and definitely will return if ever back again.
