This inn is beautiful and very central. The room we stayed in was huge and the beds and furniture were lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The complimentary tea/coffee downstairs and the lovely sitting area with computers was a very nice touch. We will definitely stay here again if we ever return...

The inn is very nicely decorated with a lovely area downstairs for sitting relaxing or using the computers. Free wifi. Room we stayed in was quite small but served the purpose of our one night stay. Window A/C. Complimentary tea/coffee downstairs in the hallway which I would prefer to have a small kettle in the room for tea. I find...

Very convenient to downtown Halifax. We used our car only for the drive to the Citadel.Rum quite clean and quiet with beautiful attention to detail...wallpaper, bedspread, etc.Would definitely stay here again. Henry's for casual dining, and Stories for gourmet dining are quite near.

We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon. We booked the Oriental room which was the most interesting room I'd ever stayed in. It was beautifully decorated and the Chinese wedding bed was a beautiful feature. The bathroom is very large and has a vanity, a window seat and jacuzzi tub. The staff were very friendly. The only...

We stayed for 2 nights in a Queen room at $175/night not including taxes. I think if you stay here, you're going for the experience of the old-world rooms etc. and not the modern conveniences of most hotels. Good Points: - Right in town, so it's walking distance to everything - FREE Parking (try find another downtown hotel with free...

My husband and I spent two nights here at the end of our PEI cycling trip. We feel that we would have been better off staying somewhere else. The staff did not go out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was quite small, and the air-conditioning unit was loud. Breakfast was average. The breakfast room is...

Had room on top floor facing the street, it was a bit noisy due to the club across the street (especially on Wednesday Karaoke night). No elevator, so lots of stairs, which was not unexpected from these old houses, but was not nice to bring luggage to and from room. Our room came with breakfast, which was mediocre at best,...

The Waverley Inn is in the perfect location to explore Halifax and also has a free carpark. Reception staff were very friendly and the tea, coffee and cake in the lobby was a lovely extra. The standard rooms are quite small which they do not appear to be on their website and the breakfast in the morning is very basic....

Beautiful inn - bed and breakfast actually. Front desk attendant was very helpful and informative. Fresh coffee and tea all day in the lobby, pus muffins in the morning and cookies in the afternoon/evening. Rooms well decorated, and bathrooms updated - which is rather rare in these historic inns. Great location - walking distance to Halifax water front, restaurant and...

We started our holiday in Canada here and were very pleased we chose this inn. We spent 3 nights here and were made to feel very welcome by the staff. They told us about places to eat, listen to music and gave us directions to attractions. Although the room we were in was quite small it suited us as we...
