Very nice hotel. Clean modern rooms. Comfy beds. Breakfast area has large windows or you can sit outside on patio which overlooks Chocolate Lake(weather providing). Breakfast was better than most and well set up.

The setting of this hotel is beautiful. It is right on the lake with stunning views from the lake facing upper floors. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful; cleaning personnel right up to management. Poor old Cocoa, the hotel dog looks decrepit and overweight, high on sedation drugs. The kids only saw him once for about 2 minutes.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and it was a pleasure. Free parking and breakfast sealed the deal. What we liked most about it is the quiet rooms, the lake view and very comfortable beds. The location was great, close to shopping and has a convenience store and pizza shop nearby. Halifax Shopping Centre was very close by car.... More

I never expected just now nice this hotel would be, I stayed here during my appointment at the QEII. The view out the window was just amazing, the lake has great color in comparison with the trees (see photo). Besides the view, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. As soon as you walk in, the lobby is very... More

Visited Halifax to see the graves of the Titanic victims. The hotel was very good, clean, the staff very attentive and the food good. Would certainly visit again. Watch out for the dogs in reception, they are very soft and could probably lick you to death. The only complaint was that the lake is not actually chocolate.

Wonderful place to stay. Upscale, clean, friendly, home like exp. Beautiful views of Chocolate Lake. Close to City. Close to shopping, handy to highway to Peggy's Cove, bridges to Dartmouth, Mt Pleasant Park. A Continental breakfast. Very comfy bed. I was traveling on my own and felt very safe and secure in within the hotel and my own suite. Thank... More

We enjoyed the BW in Halifax. Great staff, both courteous and helpful. Clean common areas and rooms. We did not have a chance to enjoy breakfast, as time would not allow due to previous commitment. But did grab a coffee to go, and the breakfast selection looked great. Next time, we will make time to sit and enjoy breakfast.

OK hotel, but others probably better if I had looked more broadly. Parking lots are disjoint and not well place for rain conditions. Rooms and hotel average quality. Dining room very good and dinner there was excellent. Pet-friendly hotel, which I did not realize when I booked it and I would have preferred not to have dogs in lobby.

This hotel is conveniently located 10 minutes from downtown Halifax on beautiful Chocolate Lake. It is very well maintained and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The hot breakfast is more than adequate to get you going in the morning. Great coffee!
