Nice big rooms and a breakfast included. 20 min's outside Halifax and close to a big box mall with all the restaurants. Recommended for people on a budget to Halifax area. This was the only hotel with rooms on our visit.

Slept very well here as the beds are super comfortable. Excellent staff and very clean rooms! Hot buffet breakfast starts at 6:30 with lots of choices. Easy driving access off 102 and a good central point when touring the area!

Everything was perfect, except for the fact that our room was facing a road at the back of the hotel. We expected it to be a quiet street but in fact it was very busy the whole night. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly. We had a fridge to put our water in and couldn't ask... More

A fresh design awaits you at this location. Inspired by the hues of "blue", the new look creates a beautiful and sincere look and feel. Experience space and openness as soon as one walks into the foyer. Even the front desk has been designed as "pods" to contribute to professional yet comfortable customer service and dialogue. The same care and... More

Five-day stay on business; June 2016. First of all, the beds were very comfortable, the shower pressure was great. Little things inside the room like usb ports, microwave, fridge and in-room safe were added bonuses. Liked the extra space on the bathroom counter for all my toiletries. Hair dryer was decent size, not one of those tiny ones. Had a... More

Thank you very much Tammy M for your feedback. I am very sorry to hear that our breakfast bar was shut down earlier than its scheduled time. It should most certainly be stocked until closing time; 9:30am Monday-Friday and 10am Saturday & Sundays. I was aware that was an issue with the pool temperature for a few days; that has... More

This is a newly renovated hotel. The place is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The staff and service are OUTSTANDING!! I highly recommend staying here. You can't go wrong!

Overall our 3 night stay was ok. My biggest complaint is their website states there is a heated pool, however it is ice cold, too cold for my toddler to go in. Also, with their new renovations they removed the tubs, only stand up showers so no baths for the kids. Rooms were average, a bit on the small side... More
