    Proximity to attractions. Easy walking distance. Staff helpful with directions.

    Noise from door slamming was a problem. Also had problems with ice machine. Noisy guests from bridal party kept us awake one night.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    View

    The wi-fi in the room didn't work. I complained to the front desk about it 3 times and got a promise that it would be looked into. It wasn't fixed.

  • Couple
    8.4

    Aveda products, & super comfortable (if small) bed. Great view of the Public Gardens across the street.

    The 'Classic Queen Guest Room' that I booked actually contained one double bed. However we found it cozy and so did not complain or comment to staff. The room was otherwise excellent.

  • Single
    10.0

    Very courteous, attentive and enjoyable

    The coffee in the room very poor

  • Single
    6.6

    I like the ambience of the lobby, entrance and dining room/bar.

    The room is very small for such a stately hotel. The tv reception was poor,especially in the bar - after all this was Stanley cup season.

  • Single
    6.4

    the sttaf very kind .

    all the room no somking !! I should go outsaid the hotel to somke !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We stayed there because it was the only hotel with any rooms left for new years eve in the south end of Hfx.

    The room was a dissappointment for $189, but the bed mattress was top notch.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The king size bed was very comfotable, the room was a good size and we enjoyed the separate kitchenette stocked with "real dishes and wine glasses"

    checkout was very busy and the lobby was crowded.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    This hotel is very convenient for seeing Halifax on foot. It was lovely.

    The bed was a double size--extremely small for two people!

  • Couple
    8.2

    Very class, clean and close to all major Halifax sites and facilities.

    My room was nex to the elevator, too much nose in hall way.

  • Single
    9.2

    Very tolerant of the crowd. Polite and helpful staff. A charming hotel and well restored yet had modern convienience.

    Not a complaint, but suggestion. The hospitality suite could have been all located on one floor and only guest attending the event should be located in areas of hospitality suits. Perhaps when booking , one should indicate if they are with a conference group/event.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    It is nice and comfortable and good location

  • Single
    8.2

    Liked the old manor style but found my room way too small.Also no view at all from where I stayed, it was noisy on the street during the night. I like the overall atmosphere and decor. It's a beautiful place but standard rooms are deceiving.

    My room.

  • Single
    7.8

    The room was small but very nice. The view of the Public Gardens was amazing. The staff are friendly and efficient.

    The only thing I did not like was my breakfast as it was a little under cooked. But there are plenty of other places to dine.

  • Single
    7.4

    Close to where I wanted to be in the city.

    Lot's of noisy guests woke me up at night but I guess they were just drunk or something after a white trash wedding of some sort. Not much you can do I guess, except warn guests when you sell a block of rooms around then to a white trash wedding party.
