Another great visit to this hotel and the Halifax area!

Front staff was very welcoming. Loved seeing Cocoa again (hotel's chocolate lab).

I was pleased to see this hotel now included breakfast in their nightly rate. Breakfast was served buffet style in the on-site Lakeside Grill restaurant and consisted of ham, sausages, eggs, french toast, hash browns, toast etc. hot and cold cereal, juice, coffee, tea, pasties, muffins and fruit.

Room was great. Bathroom a little on the small side. Beds/pillows were comfortable. Great view of Chocolate Lake. Big TV.

I submitted pictures with a previous review:

We LOVED this place. The lake was gorgeous and swimming was amazing. The onsite chocolate lab and many dogs were also a great feature of this hotel. We had a suite which was great when travelling with teens. Two TVs also VERY important. Food, staff, location and ambience were all fantastic.

Room Tip: Try for a lakeview room. The suites are not lakeview but a great option when travelling with kids.

Greeted promptly. Clean, quaint room but with a too small bathroom and uncomfortable bed. The parking wasn't sufficient for the number of rooms, not was its ability to navigate. Our complimentary breakfast was very disappointing.

While in Halifax for business, stayed at the Best Western Chocolate Lake Hotel. Beautiful location, great breakfast & great facilities (restaurant with patio view of the lake and pool/sauna were both great) along with good access to downtown Halifax and beautiful venue alongside Chocolate Lake; I'm only sorry my family was not along to enjoy this place with me. If I brought a pet along, I would definitely bring them here too, as it is very pet friendly. Enjoyed meeting hotel "ambassador" Coco the Dog, who was very friendly and was a hit with all the children I saw during my stay..

I've stayed here before and will stay again. Always meets my expectations. Staff are very courteous & friendly. Our room overlooked the lake...not noisy, very clean, very comfortable beds . Breakfast was delicious and plenty of it. We like staying here rather than downtown Halifax as the parking & breakfast is included.

I normally stay in the downtown Halifax area when I travel to the city. I booked online in the name your price section of the website and it sent me to this hotel.

At first I was disappointed that the hotel was a little ways away from the downtown area, but my concerns were unneeded.

This Hotel was amazing. I don't think that I have ever been so impressed by a hotel in my life. The rooms were brand new and the beds were the best sleep I've had in years. New Flatscreen tvs. Convenient parking outside your room. Overlooking the lake.

The hotel was awesome and what it lacked in distance from the Halifax downtown area, it made up for in everything else.

I highly recommend this hotel!
