Stayed at this lovely inn last fall (September 2019). Had a nice time — staff friendly, breakfast food good, rooms nice and clean. Stayed in a room with two beds on/near the top floor. No elevator, an easy workout. An easy walk to the wharf area.

I visited actually about 5 years ago. If you want to visit the past and what it was like to be noble and gentile, this is a great place to stay. Don’t expect it to be a modern, cookie cutter hotel. The furniture is victorian, high tea snacks in the afternoon, a sweet continental breakfast in the morning. My daughter and I stayed together in a room downstairs and it was all in walking distance of so much of Halifax. And yes, it is haunted. Someone rattled our closet door knob in the night and woke us both. In the morning, we realized there wasn’t even a door on the little closet!

This charming inn is perfectly situated between the train station and downtown. Restaurants, museums and other activities are within convenient walking distance. Several city bus routes have nearby bus-stops. The staff is friendly and helpful. Complementary coffee and tea is available 24/7. I enjoyed my stay and plan to return.

I've been staying at the Waverley Inn since either 1999 or 2000 - so for nearly twenty years. I can't say enough good about the elegance and the staff at this inn. It is THE place to stay if you've got a meeting in Halifax, or if you're wanting to see the sights for a few days in the city. It's within walking distance of the VIA Rail and bus stations, the waterfront, and lots of shopping and restaurants.

Staff were all friendly and seemed to enjoy working at this charming inn, which in turn made us feel genuinely welcome. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip in two different rooms, each of which were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was fine with quite a bit of choice. Check-out time at noon is very generous. Would definitely stay here again.
