    This Best Western has a pleasant restaurant which conveniently opens at 6:30 am,. . The rooms are good. It's nice to be able to take the dog with us sometimes. We are happy to stay here the next trips we will be taking to Halifax.

    Very family friendly, many people and pets enjoyed the grounds and even swam in the lake, very clean, good service and housekeeping. Good Breakfast spread, and choice of indoor seating or on the deck overlooking the lake, will stay here again.
