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

Splendid location and comfortable room! We enjoyed our three night stay and nice breakfasts very much. Our room was in third floor and it was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our walks to the waterfront (Pier 21!) and to the Point Pleasant Park, as well to the Public Gardens.

We picked this Inn from the many reviewed on TA for our first three nights in Halifax. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast nothing to write home about but the staff were very friendly and it was within walking distance of all points of interest in the City. Bus stop across road takes you to Fairview Lawn Cemetery -... More

We stayed two nights and wish we could have stayed more. Lovely B&B, great staff, a little slow on our second morning breakfast, but worth it. Our room was very comfortable and clean. No need to drive anywhere until time to leave, close to everything. Would go back in a flash!

We stayed here three nights for our first ever visit to Halifax as a couple. The things that are really nice about this hotel: the rooms are cozy and nicely appointed. If you want to splurge, book the front room on the second floor (number 310). It has a whirlpool bath and the room itself is a good size. The... More

What a great spot. Unique Victorian feel to the entire hotel, yet it was all modernized and very tastefully decorated. Clean. We walked to the Rebecca Cohen Theater within 10 minutes. Only downfall is that parking is an issue. They have a limited amount of spaces available. Breakfast was basic (cereal, toast, fruit) but had variety.

Staff was friendly, location was superb for walking, but man is that ground floor noisy! Between hearing doors opening and shutting until 1am, and hearing the neighbors in the driveway moving cars around till that time, it was just too loud for sleep. Also, I was under the impression its a non smoking inn, but I did smell cigarette smoke... More

Good location in the heart of Halifax. Close to tourist attractions, shopping and the waterfront. Continental breakfast was fine. Parking on site but unfortunately costs extra. Nice large bathroom and decent bed.

This is a nice old house which has been well converted . Our bedroom was a good size with a nice bathroom. The bed was a bit small and not very comfortable and was not properly remade on our second day. Other than that we found it a very nice place to stay. The staff were pleasant and helpful and...

Comfortable room and bed. Bath shower. Ideal situation for walking to downtown (15mins). Access to computer and free WiFi. Self service breakfast in dining room with plenty of options. Staff very helpful about places of interest etc, and plenty of literature available such as street maps. Parking charges are made but reasonable and off road. Disappointed that no tea/coffee available... More
