        Close to city - could walk everywhere. Desk staff were very helpful. Had fridge/microwave in room.

        Only that there was no lift to takeup luggage.

      • Older travelers

        Free parking on site. Free Internet. Free Continental Breakfast. Interesting old building. Comfortable room-fridge, microwave, TV, but no desk. Commons room was pleasant and bright.

        Bathroom floor tiles were loose. Not allowed to take coffee from the breakfast room back to my room for my wife.

        Very friendly and helpfull personnel. Cosy rooms and great breakfast to kickstart the day!

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Staff was excellent. Hotel was older, but with great character. Modernized breakfast room was cheery and bright and the breakfast choices were more than adequate.

        No in-room coffee. The lounge area adjacent to the breakfast room was very nice but apparently was locked except during breakfast hours. Would have enjoyed relaxing in that beautiful room had it been open as our room was very small.

        the reception staff were super friendly and helpful. The beds were really comfy'.It was a very good cold breakfast.

        the steps( the hotel was not disabled friendly )it was not easily accessible for a person with walking problems. would have liked tea and coffee making facilities in the room. would have preferred a hot option for breakfast(but now I am being nit picky)

        Ou get what you pay for. Very modest accomodations, yet comfortable and clean. Not expensive. Walking distance to most areas of Halifax. Friendly staff.

        Staff.

        I did not like the inn

        I would not stay nor recommend this Inn to anyone .It was smelly and the rooms are small the tv did not work and the breakfast was bad

        It was cheaper than any of hotels at Halifax. Breakfast was very decent and enouth to start your day. Staff is very helpful.

        I was told by staff that water in room was not drinkable. I had to go buy bottled water at supermarket by walking 15 minutes from Inn. Yes, Inn sells a bottle of water but it is not enough if you need a lot.There was no elevator so that I had tough time to carry my lagage into the building which has stairs everywhere. According to website, Inn was located in downtown. I would say it was little off the downtown. You would be able to have good legs to walk to downtown. It took 10 munites to the nearest place, Halifax Citadel although Citadel is located high up hill.

        beautiful old building, with possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in a hotel! beautiful area to walk around... I thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

      • Family with children

        The price was excellent and hotel staff was very helpful. The hotel is not far from most major attractions in the city.

        Can't say I'm a fan of the Continental Breakfast or the trek to get to the Breakfast room in the basement. Also a mention of the stairs to get into the Inn in the descriptions would be helpful for those of us with mobility issues. In this case the first set of guest rooms are 1 floor above street level with stairs as the only access in.

        The building the room and that I could use my Ipad in the room

        There was no hair dryer and the shower did not work well

        - price - breakfast facilities - flat screen TV - deep tub - historical sense

        - general sense of uncleanliness - slow service (took 20 minutes to sign in) - cold rooms - upkeep of bathroom - old cocking. - bathtub dirty - sink faucet in disrepair. - place felt tired - need a high quality make-over - pictures on web were deceiving. Not the quality I expected - I would recommend this place once you bring up the quality - I like historical - but I want 21st century quality of facility, cleanliness and class

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a good breakfast. It was quiet and the rooms very comfortable and clean. Handy to the city and great to be not right in the city. Nice to get a feel for the local life in the city.

        The window in our room did not lock.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        it was a 15 minute walk to downtown Halifax. Breakfast was a very good selection. Room was clean and fresh looking.

        was not as close to downtown as what we would have liked
