quiet and convenient location

Posted 30-Sep-2014 on Hotels
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Tks for the very good ocean view room, which was one of our favorite room during the trip. It is an excellent hotel with a very good price and at a very convenient location... only few minutes drive to Halifax. The staffs are very helpful and nice. The only complaint for us was the parking lots (both floors)... very small parking spaces even for a compact 4-doors car. Regarding the breakfast, we'd not expect too much for a 3-star hotel... however, the staffs should keep an eye on those empty bread/cake/fruits baskets... 3/5 mornings of our stays were almost empty (only one or two refills but with very less quantity, the time was about 9am, many guests were just started their breakfasts). I saw some of the guests had no choices and seek their breakfast out of the hotel. Other than that, we were very happy about staying at the hotel and we will definitely to consider stay there again in the future.

Convenient to Halifax by bridge or transit

Posted 29-Sep-2014
Pros: Comfortable bed, quiet.
Cons: Do something with the second floor public area. It is very shabby.
Location: All of Halifax is nearby, and can be accessed by public transportation.
Our experience was fine, for a one night stopover, but I wouldn't find it so for a vacation experience. We had no oceanview, just a view of a driveway and house next door. We arrived late and didn't go for dinner as there are no restaurants nearby. Hotel's continental breakfast was fine but I note that they are ending this feature soon, and I would expect a cheaper room rate once breakfast is eliminated. Second floor has an odd sitting room next to what I think used to be a large hot tub, now covered with wood. Seems to be a popular hotel for visiting youth teams, but they were well behaved and quiet when we were there.

Was not informed ahead that continental breakfast discontinued as of 9/15/14 ( the morning of our stay _ "downer" ). Other than the breakfast, the stay was pleasant enough. Convenient to the "Celtic Corner" Irish Pub (enjoyed that). Convenient for crossing over to Halifax.

Close to Dartmouth/Halifax Ferry & Legion

Hotel is good value at sale prices. It is starting to show its age with scratched paint on door trims. Only South facing rooms, available at a premium, have a view of the harbour.

Great view of Halifax Harbour, Reasonable price

Posted 20-Sep-2014
Pros: View, comfortable beds. Location
Cons: Needs refurbishing - décor is tired
Location: Enjoy a ferry ride to the Halifax waterfront. Easy to reach downtown Halifax
Average Hotel with an excellent view close to the Dartmouth-Halifax ferry. Comfortable beds. The rooms could do with refurbishing. Enjoyed the continental breakfast. I would go back

Blow this up

Posted 16-Sep-2014
First room was still dirty from last visitors. Staff was nice enough but handcuffed by the dive they work in. Old unlicensed vehicles in out door parking look. Never again
