“sorry garden park inn but I didn't like you at all.....”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I really didn't like this place... let me count the ways...
While the outside looks charming enough, the inside, at least the rooms are bland and completely lacking in charm. The floors are covered in a bland carpet; 2 "meeting room" chairs took up a lot of space and were useless; there is no desk (but 10 drawers); the bathroom floor is made of heavy plastic; the shampoo is No Name, made in China; the staff were uninformed and not very friendly; on day 4, housekeeping didn't bother making my bed and by the end of my 5 day stay, I had stacked up 3 dirty coffee cups and 2 dirty water glasses (never cleaned or replaced)' the wireless quit working for 36 hours (and no one knew or cared); no full length mirror; the breakfast room doesn't open until 7:30 and when I dared go in 20 mins. early looking for a cup of coffee, the staff person was not very happy even though I could see that the coffee was ready. Breakfast is a few boxes of cereal, cheap store bought bread, cheap pastries and muffins, cheap juice. On the good side, the window opened, the location is good and it is quiet and there is a good size TV. I do not recommend this place at all.

I used to stay here a few years ago before the renovations and it was good, but not amazing. But NOW, rainshower heads in the shower? It takes bed and breakfasts to a new level. The place is clean and comfortable as usual, and now its beautiful and so cozy. All the rooms and the hallways and even their dining room has been redone and it looks incredible. My particular favourite are the rooms on the 3rd floor. You couldn't ask for any more location-wise as its right in the heart of halifax and a walking distance to all the coffee shops, gardens, restaurants and shopping areas you desire. We had an incredible time and cannot wait to come back!! Thanks Marie for all your help!!!

I am on a return visit to the city and as always I decided to stay at the Garden South Park Inn what a plesant surprise I had, This is newly renovated with many extra amenities. The 32 inch flat screen wall mounted TV was an added bonus as well as the rain shower now installed as well as a regular bathtub and shower. I cannot forget the nicely planned computer lab with two touch screen computers without the big towers as well as a printer for guest use. The free internet is free weather you use wireless or connection (they now have both) to enjoy and its FREE. Parking is still the same; however I neve did find it a big issue as there is lots of curbside parking as well the inn is located alongside a very large pay parking lot. The staff seemed very happy to see me and couldn't wait to give a tour of all the new renovaions and color schemes. I will be back

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice. I stayed on the third floor, but would stay on either floor and be very co...

I recently stayed at the Garden South Park Street and was very pleased. They have undergone extreme renovations and the result is amazing. The place is so clean and comfortable! I will definetly return. Marie, the Innkeeper was very sweet and recommended places or us to see while we were in town and ensured that our breakfast was to our liking.

Overall I give it a 10 out of 10

Room Tip: I am sure all of the rooms are wonderful so if you want a city view choose the front.

Stayed there two weeks ago upon the re-opening of the Inn. Very delightful place to stay with friendly courteous staff. The rain shower was a plus added to the Inn. It is conveniently located and close to all the attractions and amenties of the downtown area. The Pier for the Titatinic was within walking distance. Beds and rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this Inn. Many thanks to Marie and her staff they are all so knowledgable and courteous.
Will be back in the summer, to try the new air conditioner.

Room Tip: All rooms were beautiful. Noise level was low. I would use any room on any floor

Have been coming here for the past 10 year and is truly surprised by some negative responses. The staff re all friendly and knowledgable. The Inn is located in the downtown area within walking distance to all amenities and hospitals. Public Gardens just 2 blocks away and they are amazing. Rooms are very clean and beds are comfortable. Free continentail breakfast and wireless intrernet a plus. A computer room with access to printer for guest to use is a plus as well. The evening tea, coffee and sweets is a welcome treat after returning home from a long day sight seeing. Charming Inn. Can't wait to return for our trip #12

Room Tip: First Floor (basement) more quiet and cooler

This inn was lovely. Quiet, clean, wonderful breakfasts and tea and snacks available at night. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. I was on the ground floor on the street and it was quiet, I didn't hear street sounds or guests coming and going. I was here for a 6 night stay for a conference at the Cunard Center, an easy 15 minute walk. Less than 5 minutes to get to the airport shuttle stop back to the airport. Perfect in every way.
