The staff and their attention to your needs can only be described as touching. The front desk staff, the kitchen girls and the maintenance guys were quick to say good morning, how is everything, is there anything I can get for, do you need any help. It was just awesome. Somebody is doing a great job of training and it is very clear that the staff enjoy thier jobs which is a rare thing today. I would recommend this location to anybody, business, family, medical, etc.
Spotless clean inside and out and big smiles all around for a price that is more than reasonable. Keep it up. I'll be back again and so will my frieds.

We appreciated the large breakfast selection and clean tables. The staff and service were very good. My children enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed the hot tub. The hotel played music out the front hotel speakers all night and woke my husband up several times as he was sleeping closest to the window, the hotel might consider turning this off after 10pm. The mini-fridge, microwave, and in room coffee maker was appreciated.

We had a very comfortable stay here with our family of 4. We have 2 young kids and found that the "KidSuites" were a perfect fit for us. My 3 year old loved sleeping in the bunk beds and we really liked how it was separate enough that we all had privacy (and he had enough darkness to sleep while we were still up) but still part of the room where we could keep an eye on him. The walls must be really thick, too, because we didn't hear anything (and hopefully our neighbours didn't hear our baby crying...). The breakfasts were always well-stocked and had a large variety to choose from. The location is very convenient to go downtown (10-15 min drive) as well as local area restaurants and grocery stores. We loved having the Tim Horton's next door, too! The mini-fridge and microwave in the room were also a great plus. Finally, all the staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again whenever we return to Halifax!!

Friendly staff and location near the ferry. Rooms are clean and modern. We attended for a wedding and its an overall positive experience. It is supposed to be one of the better locales for special events or get togethers in dartmouth and is located a short hop from downtown halifax. Also there are neighbouring convenience foods etc... close by.

We did have one difficulty with security but in response the hotel offered to switch our rooms, provided free breakfast and gave a hand written letter and phone call to apologize. This more than made up for it.

The restaurant has good service and food quality but food selection is very limited. They are willing to modify for speacil diets.

Well maintained and heated outdoor pool of moderate size, but the restaurant windows can see you!

Fitness room is clean but somewhat small and good use a bit of maintenance or updating. They do provide towels and water services which is a plus.

Overall, this is recommended place and we'd be willing to stay here again.
