Another positive experience at the Chocolate Lake Hotel. Our room was very nice, well maintained and clean. (Liked the sanitized TV remote!) Being in the tower, a view of the lake is included. Considering how busy they were over the weekend, we could not be happier. Noise was kept to a minimum, and though the hotel was full, breakfast was... More

I usually stay in downtown Halifax but when I try to stay close to work, I book around Chocolate Lake. Last week, I flew in during a snow storm. I knew it was going to be bad and did not want to attempt driving along the narrow and steep downtown roads. Staying close to work was a good idea and... More

The staff were very friendly and made it very enjoyable upon checking in which set the tone for our stay. Rooms were very clean and very spacious and beds I would have loved to take home. Also very quiet. You would never even know there was someone staying in the room beside you if we had not seen them. Beautiful... More

An excellent alternative to the more expensive downtown hotels. Rooms are large, well equipped, and clean. Not close to downtown, so be aware when booking. Didn't use the restaurant, so I can't comment there. Recommended.

I have yet to be disappointed with a Best Western hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, extremely clean rooms, comfortable beds and nice pool. What more can you ask for? A nice restaurant with great food....they have that too!

We stayed at the Best Western Chocolate Lake in Halifax for five days in order to visit family in the Halifax area. Our daughter had stayed there last year and highly recommended it. We were traveling from Los Angeles, California and did not know the area or the hotel. The hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed... More

This is a great hotel in a good location. Easy to get around. Food is good, even the coffee!. Fitness room is well equipped, Games room for the tween group who can be hard to entertain. Excellent pool with Adult only time - yes! Nice whirlpool. Rooms could use a refresh and with the hide-a-bed pulled out it was tricky... More
