I booked through booking.com, and booked this place specifically because it advertised airport pickup. I paid $50 - and they thought it was a 'good deal' for me. Hmm... The room was OK but decorated oddly for Maritime Canada - with pics of NYC skyline. And my 'handicapped' accessible room had a bed about 3 feet tall - I had...

We enjoyed our stay at Ascendence - our room was lovely, incorporating old and new decor. The bathroom was well appointed with a jacuzzi tub and everything was very clean! We had some lovely extra touches like water on a silver tray and Netflix on our TV to name a couple. The breakfasts were delicious and when I told them...

We always like to make people feel at home and give them knowledge of our city unless we can read our guests that sometimes don't want any information. Thanks for staying with us.

We booked to stay 3 nights. We had to cancel our trip due to a death in the family. We made numerous attempts, well before our booked dates, to reach the hotel. No one ever answered the phone and no one returned our messages. And, no one responded to our later emails. Almost the full price of our booking was...

We called you back after the 3 days an the rooms did not end up getting rented we even put a discount on them. Just in the summer Halifax gets full so people...

We first stayed at Ascendence Harbourview Mansion for the weekend of our 40th wedding anniversary. Dan and Katherine were such warm and friendly hosts who went above and beyond to make our weekend special, so we were delighted to return for our final night in Nova Scotia. We stayed in the beautiful Auditor's Suite. Breakfast were delicious, attractively served and...

We had a wonderful stay at the Ascendence B&B in Halifax. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, going out of there way to find a spot for us on a sold out weekend in Halifax. Very much appreciated Cathryn and Dan. Our breakfast of fresh fruit with yogurt and homemade crepes was delicious!! Our room was lovely, with periodic...

I stayed here for 3 nights. I was welcomed by Daniel when I checked in and greeted by Katherine next morning. The breakfast was awesome all three morning and Katherine told about surroundings and recommended places to go. It's about 10 minutes driving distance from harbour front so location is also good. I read review about parking. Yes, parking is...

Good breakfast, great internet, fairly clean room but a little on the noisy side. The Artist Room is located near/next to the owners quarters and could here conversations, cleaning of dishes and music but all was quiet by 9pm. Glasses would have been nice to have in the room. Good price but is outside of the city. Traffic was awful...

There is only traffic from 730am until 9:00 AM and 430-530PM. We stopped putting glasses in the rooms because people are not using them enough so we put them in the china cabinet downstairs. But we have since put them back in the rooms thanks for the update
