Very clean, room with its own bathroom, the breakfast was good and the hosts willing to please. You might expect husband and wife to cater to your needs, but in this B&B there was an added delight - the sweetest little girl only a few months old. We look forward to staying at Ascendence Harbourside again

Katherine and Daniel will go out of their way to make your stay as positive as possible. They are a very outgoing, friendly and helpful couple who will immediately make you feel like family. The location was perfect for us as we were going back and forth to Dartmouth and the McDonald Bridge was experiencing nightly closures due to ongoing...

This was the perfect place to stay in Halifax. The room was more than we could have asked for -- it even had a jacuzzi! While it isn't located in the center of the city, it's only a 5 minute drive from all the attractions. The hosts were very friendly and were so helpful, providing information on interesting places to...

A really wonderful stay all around!! The hosts were such sweethearts, nothing was too hard or too annoying. They went above and beyond for every little thing, and I am a pucky customer! They also make a mean breakfast. They will take the time to introduce Halifax to you, and all the surrounding attractions. Rooms are quiet and clean. Location...

It was the first time my husband and I went to Nova Scotia, and Ascendence Harbourside treat us as good as we can image. Everything is great except parking, it was a little bit difficult to park in front of hotel.

Katherine and Danny were such friendly, gracious and fun hosts. Breakfast was delightfully delicious and it was a pleasure to learn about special attractions and historic sites. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and very quiet. Staying in this historic home was a special treat. Can recommend Ascendence very highly.

Beautiful Heritage Mansion full of character, and plenty of privacy with a lot surrounded by woodland. Easy access to downtown attractions and restaurants, and an easy, relaxed atmosphere to come "home" to. The B&B owners truly go out of their way to make sure that your visit is one that you will definitely come back for. Artist's suite window faces...
