We were staying with extended family all of whom were flying in to Halifax. The Chocolate Lake Best Western is easily accessible by car via Hwy 102 from the airport without going through the city. That was the first advantage. There were others as well. It is well located for a quick drive down town as well. The price was... More

Although the room was good, my expectations plummeted as I found out that what I had reserved was not the room I had looked on screen images via the Best Western site. If I would have known that the room didn't have the things I saw in the pictures, I would have taken a regular suite.

Hi Brandon W and I am sorry for your disappointment. I would love it if you contacted me directly so that I could determine where the miscommunication came from. We try to ensure each picture is labelled with the corresponding room type-but if we missed one, or if one is misleading we will have it fixed right away! ps@chocolatelakehotel.com More

Thank you Jolene C for choosing Chocolate Lake. Glad to hear you enjoyed our restaurant that overlooks the lake. It is well known for serving up some amazing dishes. I personally recommend the Lakeside Burger on your next visit, as it is simply delicious! More

This hotel is close to downtown (if you have transportation), but not as expensive as the hotels in the centre of town. It is a scenic site in a mostly residential area on the edge of a small lake. Both the reservations and the desk staff were very helpful in advising us on the most suitable reservations for both us... More

Stayed two nights. Staff very friendly. Views were great. Need to ask for lake view though. Rooms standard, beds comfy. Wonderful breakfast in the morning that is included. All you need to keep you going for the day.. Less than a 10 min drive to the Halifax wharf. Come back to happy hour specials, drinks and appetizers. Finish the night... More

A good location, large king sized bed, executive desk and very good furniture. The full breakfast came with the room and was of good quality. The front desk has an outstanding hospitality worker and spends time to make sure all your needs are met: Kory Harper. We arrived in Halifax late at night, rented a car and the car's GPS... More

This is a very nice facility. Our room was nicely appointed, with a large arm chair and ottoman, an upholstered bench at the foot of the bed, and a desk with a desk chair. The furniture appeared relatively new. The only limitations were a somewhat small counter in bathroom, and the carpet in our room (607) apparently hadn’t been properly... More

Best Western Chocolate Lake provided us with a great location, not too far from downtown and shopping centres. The view from the lake side guest rooms is fantastic. The staff were courteous and helpful, as well as knowledgeable of Halifax and area. Room was clean and well presented. My daughter enjoyed the pool. Ample parking was available.

Beautifully located on chocolate lake. It was nice getting up early with the paper and a coffee sitting beside the lake Clean and comforable rooms. Beds were very nice. Simple free breakfast but good. I would definitely recommend it. :)

Thank you ChristinaB42 for sharing your experience with everyone. My favorite thing about coming to work in the morning is watching guests, like yourselves, sitting by the lake, reading the paper and enjoying your Seattle's Best Coffee. (I must admit that I get a little jealous.) Come back soon! More
