We were staying in the hotel during a volleyball tournament for our daughter. The rooms are well appointed and the view of the Lake is beautiful. This property is very well maintained for the age of the premises and we were pleasantly surprised. Overall we were very comfortable.

What a beautiful location this is. Right on the water, a pet-friendly hotel. The staff were most welcoming, restaurants were superior, very clean and only suggestion would be to update the decor - particularly in the bedrooms.

The hotel is relatively close to the center of town of Halifax. There is limited parking in front of the hotel, but on the left and right in the back are more spaces. The two back lots can be reached by separate back doors. That might be a bit confusing. The lobby area is fine. The breakfast room is decorated...

This is a lovely property. There is a huge comfy sitting area when you walk in. The staff were very helpful on all matters. Our room as very clean and comfortable. We stayed 2 nights and totally enjoyed ourselves. This is just a short cab ride from down which makes it very conveint as well.

My daughter and I recently stayed here for a little getaway. The hotel has a welcoming atmosphere and we found the room to be quite clean. My daughter was anxious to use the pool so it was one of our first stops after checking in. The lock on the main pool door does not work. Someone had to get out...

Great place to stay near the Halifax Shopping Centre and Historic Properties (if you have a car). Try and get a room with a view of the lake. They have a very quiet lovely pup behind the check-in counter.

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel in the past 2 years and were very happy both times. The rooms are very nice and clean and the view of the lake makes breakfast a great experience. Will definitely visit again.

The resident ambassador is a chocolate lab named Aero. Was a very special treat upon checking in! The hotel is situated on a beautiful lake with breathtaking views! A fair distance from the harbour, but a very easy drive going back and forth!
