My experience interacting with this B&B is limited to the reservation/cancellation phase. After making a phone reservation in March 2015, in early July I had to cancel my Sept 2015 reservation due to a health crisis. This represented more than the required 48 hrs cancellation notice. Multiple refund requests were made by email and phone (when she rudely hung up... More

All I can do is make a list .... 1. We were made to walk to a bank in order to pay cash up front to the owner. She couldn't even wait until we came back from dinner because she was broke. 2. She leaves the front door open until very late which did not make me feel safe. 3.... More

We needed to stay a night in halifax and booked this B&B in the last minute. It offers a great price for staying in downtown halifax. The room is OK but the private bathroom are outside of the room. The breakfast was also good. If you need a place to stay for a night its an option. The host loves... More

My husband and I have visited many B&Bs all over the world. I can honestly say we have never encountered a more rude proprietor. The sign in the room says that breakfast is served "8: 30 ish". We showed up at 8:25 and she complained that we were early. When a fellow guest asked if we could have toast with... More

We cannot speak to the quality of the B&B because unfortunately, for health reasons, we could not travel. However, beware of placing a deposit with this establishment. Despite their promise to reimburse before a specified deadline, they do not do so.

We could not find many B&Bs close to downtown Halifax so this one is great because it is within walking distance of all the attractions. We stayed in the loft room for two days which was a good space, everything worked and it was convenient for us. The owner is a character and her conversation may not be to everyone's... More

We stayed in the loft, myself, husband and our two year old. It was perfect. Bed was comfortable, the room was clean and tidy. The location is awesome, only 1.5km walk to harbour! Joan was a perfect host and makes excellent crepes! She has a soon the be famous son...ask her about him!

Our reservation had been made a month in advance and when we got there the owner Joan said that she had bad news. 1) she had overbooked so we did not get the room we booked (Blue room), 2) and that for our second night she would send us to another B&B. My booking was for a large room, which... More

1. Our reservation - 3 months before our stay - was senseless. The first night (start of our trip) we got another room than approved, the second night (end of our trip, 3 weeks later) Joan, the owner, sent us to another B&B. The Verandah was overbooked - her promise after the first night, that we will get the reserved... More

The owner of this B & B seems to be too worn out to provide proper care of her guests. We were given a room other than the one reserved and when I finally got to speak to the owner, her answer was that we should be glad that we had a room! Service was next to none, room was... More
