The Waverley Inn in downtown Halifax is a charming, historic B&B style hotel, much to be preferred to the typical large chain hotels for the visiting tourist. The 1866 Victorian mansion has been a hotel since 1876, and has been renovated and modernized, although with no elevator there are a lot of stairs to negotiate. The breakfast room in the basement is particularly inconvenient. The lobby and halls are full of beautiful antiques, as are the rooms. The only serious drawback for us was the diminutive room, and especially the bathroom, which was so small you could hardly turn around. Like most historic renovations, there was no counter space in the bathroom, with the pedestal sink. The furniture of our “traditional” room was nice, with excellent bedding, but there was only one chair and the windows were small. I guess you have to work with the building you have, but it would probably be worth the extra cost to book one of the larger rooms. The location is perfect, and it is an easy walk to the Citadel and the harbour waterfront. There is free parking and Internet, with two computers in the lobby. We lucked out in getting tickets (half price, even!) to the world-famous Halifax International Tattoo, which was phenomenal, even better, in my opinion, than the Tattoo in Edinburgh, Scotland.
