During the last two nights of a two week Canadian Maritime B&B extravaganza, two couples chose The Garden South Park Inn for our stay in Halifax. After the first twelve nights in eleven different B&Bs, we were looking forward to staying the last two in one location. Of course, we had a large basis of comparison during the trip and... More

Inn has limited paid parking. Rooms are on the second and third floor with no elevator. Inn is located across from the hospital, but it is quiet, especially with one neighbor being a cemetery. The rooms and bathroom are small, but adequate. Breakfast is minimal with limited seating.

This is a small hotel, not one of the big chain's. The parking is limited, and pricy but that is the same everywhere in Halifax. The good news is that its a short walk to everything...around the corner from the restaurants and shops of Spring Garden Road, and about 15 minutes to the Historic Properties. Good value for the location.

We needed a quick place to stay, and the price was right. When we arrived they wanted to charge us for rear overnight parking even though the meters on the street were free. The blankets were itchy and you could hear everyone in the hallway. It was fine for the price but probably wouldnt stay again unless we had no... More

We stayed two nights in September. We were able to check in an hour early which was good and the staff were friendly. It is fairly conveniently located to walk around town. I found it to be mostly quiet and got good night's sleep. The accommodations are adequate, but that's about as far as I'd go. The bed was comfortable... More

We like to stay downtown but with our "fixed income" budgets, we avoid chains and tend to look for B&Bs. This fit our bill nicely. The service was excellent, the rooms were newer and clean, not overly large but not cramped either. The shower (two heads) was great! The location was perfect for walkers, we were able to park our...

We struggled to find a hotel that wasn't booked in downtown Halifax. Then I discovered an ad in the tour book for this B&B. It was a great find. A beautiful restored victorian home with a modern feel. Reasonable priced for Halifax. Parking was extra. Good location, 15 minute walk to Harbour and 5 minute walk to the Public Gardens.... More

Located in a residential area of Halifax near St Mary's University (15 minute walk) and a nice public garden ( 5 minute walk), this bed-and-breakfast is a large Victorian house with contemporary amenities including an elevator and a small parking lot in the rear and a good hot shower. Breakfast in the light and airy parlor is continental, serve-yourself, and... More

Well maintained Victorian property only five minutes from everything Hallifax has to offer. Near by street has the best bars and food outlets, great shopping. Rooms very modern facilities, well appointed and very clean. Breakfast sufficient. Staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed twice as we travelled around Nova Scotia.

Just the experience of staying in a historic building was interesting enough. The rooms are very updated though, the beds were comfortable, the amenities were more than adequate and fairly surprising giving the age of the building. Only warning would be if you have luggage you will have to drag it up the stairs yourself. There are a good amount... More
