“Clean, comfortable, and helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Recently stayed there for several days. This hotel has a shuttle to the airport every half hour. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Decor is bright, new and vibrant. Breakfast buffet was a great value added feature. They should probably better stock their "convenience store" nook, as this place had very few items. They may also wish to consider installing some form of on-demand movie/tv feature. Also, they should probably extend the breakfast buffet hours a little later - to 11AM or even right up to 12. The area it's served in isn't really a full-time restaurant and it's the least they can do. Still, overall, a comfortable place to stay if you're held-over. Right in front of the Hotel to the left, there's a bus stop for the 320 Express Metro bus. For $3.25, it will take you to Dartmouth and to a stop in Downtown Halifax. This is very useful, as taxi rides that distance will cost $60+ and even the Airport Shuttle will run $22 one way or $40 return.

Wow! Thank you Buchans79 for your kind 5 star review. Our convenience store is stocked weekly and sometimes we do fall behind with the increased demand from our guests. We will be installing a new movie system early in 2014.
I hope to welcome you back soon
Cheers for now

AS a travel agent this is my choice. It's so service catered to travelers and they have a great free morning buffet. With free transport to the airport and free parking for two weeks its almost free to many compared to parking.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the night of December 9th. We arrived in a snow storm and the hotel shuttle was still running on schedule, I was impressed! The hotel staff were friendly and accommodated our luggage after we arrived and had to leave right away to return our car rental. Our room was nice, the beds and pillows were comfortable. I only wish we had more time but we arrived late and checked-out very early for our flight the next morning. Even with snow still on the ground, the hotel shuttle was still on schedule to the minute. Because we left so early in the morning, we didn't take the time to enjoy the breakfast but we could smell the bacon as we wandered out of the lobby. The hotel is an excellent choice for proximity to the airport and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location to every traveler that I know :)

This hotel was fairly new and very clean and comfortable! The hotel staff helped us with a lot of questions about the area including our need for directions and maps. Breakfast was wonderful and fresh each day. Appreciated having such a great place to come back to after sightseeing for a couple of days. We opted for an upgrade to a larger room/suite and thought it was well worth it for the extra space.

Room Tip: Opted for a suite which was very nice and we appreciated the extra space!

Used this hotel for one night After landing at Halifax Airport. Free shuttle bus service running every 30 minutes was a great help. Typical North American hotel in terms of high quality, clean room with huge comfy bed. Restaurant with straightforward menu, but the food was well cooked and very tasty. Good value for money.

Thank you Turbinetraveller for your kind review. I am happy to hear that you had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Our returning guests do find that it is good value to stay overnight and park when they are travelling since the airport is only minutes away and we have a free shuttle service.

I hope to welcome you back again soon.

As I always do with my visits to Nova Scotia, I stayed here for my last night of my trip. The hotel is situated near the airport so it makes for a quick drive in the morning. The rooms are very comfortable and modern. If you are on the front side of the hotel you may notice the airplanes taking off sometimes. It was not that loud in the evenings for me. The service was very nice as well.

One of my favourite features I always enjoy is the little market where you buy a drink or snack. There are no stores nearby so it's nice to not have to go very far after I've settled into my room. I didn't try the breakfast the last time I stayed but previous times I've grabbed a couple of items before heading to the airport.

I rented a car this time and I noticed the parking lot can get busy so I found a nice spot around the back. sS if you can't find anything good out front there's plenty of room behind the hotel and it's less busy.

All in all it's a very nice and consistently good stay.
