    Great

    Commons Inn is very convenient for exploring Halifax, a lovely city with a great deal to offer. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Rate was very reasonable.

    Rooms were a bit cramped and cleaning was sometimes unsatisfactory.

    Nice

    Clean room, quiet, good location for walking to the dock area.

    Consider a elevator, narrow stairs, hard to carry luggage in to the upper floor rooms, small rooms, comfortable, suitable for couples.

    Perfect

    It was quiet and professionally run. I had a follow up query as I had paid by credit card then used cash and so had to contact the Hotel afterwards for a release fax to be sent to the credit card company to enable the credit to come through and this was attended to very promptly by Jeffrey.

    The only thing was having an early flight and was told the night before I could grab a muffin the next morning to eat on the way, but the next morning, I was told this was not possible as the kitchen was not open yet thus I missed breakfast

    I found it was not quiet. You could hear the people in the room above walking on the floor and the sound from down the hallway carried into the room even with a closed door.

    Perfect

    Our room was comfortable and clean, the staff were helpful, and the continental breakfast was great!

    Very good

    Very helpful reception staff. Convenient location for visiting waterfront and centre of old Halifax. Hotel in historic building. Free car parking. Was given free upgrade as renovation work taking place on standard room.

    No lounge. Interior decor rather weary. Hotel not in smart area (but room price reflects this).
