Joan is a great host.. Lots of helpful information for us as first time visitors.. Her home is comfortable and breakfasts were great. We had a great time getting to know Joan and would recommend this place to friends

If you are looking for a low price, conveniently located B&B near Kings and Dal then this is a great choice. If you do not want to share a bathroom, have to speak to people at breakfast or can't live without a TV then stay somewhere else
Our room with a double bed was small but had a lovely deck attached. Breakfast was yummy and super filling
Joan is a wonderful host. We enjoyed our stay here

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms available - a small room with double bed and deck or a larger room with 2 twin beds

Dear gentle reader: if you are seeking a warm, inviting and caring place to stay while in Halifax, look no further than Joan's place (Marigold Bed and Breakfast) on Norwood street. Her place is located near Quinpool and Oxford, an easy 15 minute walk to downtown Halifax. Quinpool has pretty much everything you need and the neighbourhood is very quiet, well treed and beautifully landscaped.

Joan is very kind and helpful to your needs and wishes and will do her very best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms (two of them) are basic but clean and attractively decorated. The shared bathroom off the hall has everything you need. My favourite room is #2 because of the wonderful balcony off the side of the room. Perfect for sitting outside in privacy during the warmer season.

Joan's breakfasts are memorable and are freshly prepared every day. My last night's stay was a short one due to an early flight leaving Halifax. Joan very kindly packed me a generous lunch to take on the flight home in lieu of a breakfast. You'll find her a personable and kind-hearted soul with amazing talent for creating beautiful paintings. I have one back home here in Vancouver to remind me of her talent and her warmth and kindness.

Room Tip: Room #2 has a lovely balcony, but is west facing and can be a tad warm.

I can think of few B&Bs where I have received such great value as Marigold. Its location was great with close proximity to downtown, but within a couple of blocks of a great dining area -- Quinpool Street. While the rooms lacked air conditioning and a private bathroom, the price more than made up for that. There are only two rooms, so the shared bathroom was not a big deal. The only thing I thought was missing was a common room for relaxing like I have seen in so many other B&Bs. There is a common room for breakfast, but that didn't have the same appeal as something like a reading room.

Breakfasts were good and hardy with little need for anything other than snacking until dinner.

Joan is a fabulous host and she really seems to enjoy people and her business.

The Marigold B&B is in a great location and Joan was a great introduction to our Canadian adventure. She welcomed us warmly & let us watch the wimbledon tennis final with Andy Murray narrowly losing to Federer. That aside our stay was a lovely 4 nights. The local area is quaint and Quinpool road nearby provides lots of places for meals.
Breakfasts were brilliant. We needed this relaxing start and Joan really helped as well as being a good source of local info- buses , places to go .
Oh and try & get to the local cinema with its art Deco style - its great

Room Tip: Shared bathroom may be a disincentive but no problem for us. Ours had its own balcony
