We enjoyed our stay and especially enjoyed seeing Cocoa and her picture with Santa. Also chuckled with staff about her not liking Santa but really took to the Grinch. The staff at Chocolate Lake are always so friendly and helpful. We enjoy seeing them on our stays.

Beds could be better and towels provided in the pool area would make this an excellent choice! Loved that they have a dog in the lobby and the friendlyness of their staff. Very impressively clean hotel!

Beautiful location and setting. Newer hotel & amenities. Great staff. Make sure you stop and visit with Cocoa the Hotel Ambasador Chocolate Lab. So much to see and do in Halifax and the hotel seamed to be in the middle of it all. We will definately be back to visit this place again!

Good hotel, close to downtown and shopping. Good ammenities(pool, hot tuband gym if you so desire), beds a bit too firm for me., small bathroom but very clean. Breakfast included and free wi-fi, can't go wrong with that. Staff are always freindly and of course Coco is always a pleasure to see.

We stayed here two nights. The hotel was very well decorated. The staff was very helpful. The room was well appointed,clean bathroom,comfortable bed and we had a great view of the lake. The only complaint was the parking, there was not much up front but additional around lower rear area. The included breakfast was slightly better than most.

As always a very enjoyable stay. The pool and hot tub area were very nice, a great spot to relax. Wish we had more time to take it all in, the fitness room looked great. Would definitely return again. The free night promotion has made it an even better value.

We recently had a family get-away to Halifax. We booked this hotel through Priceline so we didn't know what we were getting until we booked it. Well we were pleasantly surprised! The staff was excellent! The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. We stayed on the 8th floor...814....great view of the lake! The hotel is located very close... More
