The room was very clean, décor ok, bed comfortable. The restaurant was newly redone and there was strong fumes from the stained tables and a very poor layout of the breakfast amenities, very tight quarters.

Check in staff very helpful room assignment, directs etc. however hotel restaurant was under renovation. Not sure I would have booked if I knew in advance. Only one restaurant so breakfast was set up in lobby with no one there to assist or replace food items. Reno work so loud you could not speak without screaming.

A one bedroom lake-view suite with a fireplace for $116 seemed too good to be true...and it was. I don't generally like leaving bad reviews, but there are so many good reviews for this hotel that I feel it is misleading not to share my experience. We originally booked 2 nights but were so disappointed that we cancelled the second... More

Another perfect stay ! And I always look forward to seeing Cocoa - the Chocolate lab. The restaurant was undergoing a major renovation, however the breakfast was moved to the lobby. Staff are very friendly and helpful

The staff at this hotel couldn't have treated us any better! The hotel is in a beautiful location with a lovely view of the lake and a very pretty sunrise. It is very nicely located as well...not far from all of the things in Halifax we wanted to do. But the highlight for us was the way the staff, in... More

Upon arrival we had a friendly greeting and everything was as we had booked. We had a very comfortable quiet room and pleasant stay. Have stayed here 4 other times in the past year and have always been very pleased and impressed with the staff working here. Always very kind and helpful.

Clean comfortable rooms with friendly staff. Cocoa the ambassador is a sweetheart, family friendly including your pet. I only wanted to include a short review but this keeps telling me that I need a minimum of 200 characters.

Booked in for three nights with sports team. Front desk staff great. In house restaurant good, wait staff very pleasant. Very accomodating for travelers with pets, have separate wing. Pool/games area very nice. This is our first night but already very pleased. Can't wait to check out hot breakfast buffet.
