We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The room was nice, the view was great, bed was comfortable. It was in a good location as well. The jacuzzi was not working, and we missed seeing the chocolate lab, that stays there!! Other than that, it was great!!

Stayed in Halifax for three nights. The room was beautiful and quite large. Very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. This hotel has a wonderful staff and the free breakfast was very nice. I highly recommend this hotel.

Large hotel with free parking and good access to downtown Halifax. Clean room and comfortable bed. Good electric outlets and lighting in room and solid wifi.

We stayed there twice in 3 days. On our first visit we had a King room on the 9th Floor which was fantastic. On our second visit we had a Queen room on lower level two, the room was just ok. Other than the Hotel Restaurant there is only a Subway and a Convenience Store next door otherwise you either... More

Not many places (like none) to eat nearby, so be prepared to drive for dinner, but otherwise good location (easy access in and out), clean, comfortable and quiet rooms, & the kids enjoyed a jump in the lake. Parking can be a hassle on weekends as the lot fills with party goers to the banquet rooms, twice had to wait... More

Clean,all staff friendly,helpful. Good location. Short distance to malls,Halifax and Chebucto. Short distance by Taxi from hotel to my eye doctor's office. Quiet and peaceful. Nice to have a restaurant in the hotel. Pet friendly as they have a chocolate lab named Cocco, regular and returned quests always look for her.

This is an excellent hotel to stay in especially when you have the time to relax and appreciate the surroundings. The staff treat you like family. The hotel grounds are beautifully kept and welcoming. The dining room has a wonderful view. The dining room exterior deck is nice. It does need a sloped entrance to the deck as opposed to... More

From reception to check out everything very smooth. Rooms and view are exceptional and very nicely appointed and most importantly, clean. You are a short distance from the city center. The hotel has a very nice restaurant with a deck with a view of the lake. We have stayed here before and will do so again when in Halifax

Ideally located near shopping and easy / quick access to downtown business locations by car or transit. Room rate was excellent and included hot continental buffet breakfast . Facilities were great and the Chocolate Lake setting is an outstanding picturesque oasis within the city. Very peaceful and inviting.

Nice to be able to look out the window and see people swimming in Chocolate Lake. We caught a bus to the downtown right in front of the hotel. Great way to see the sites in Halifax. Unfortunately the hot tub was out of order and it was one of the reasons we stayed at this hotel. Otherwise, we would... More

Thank you NanaFaw for choosing Chocolate Lake. Sorry about the hot tub, it's fixed now! Glad you took advantage of the great convenience of public transit right outside our door, it makes getting to the waterfront a breeze. More
