This hotel is awesome. It's this big old Victorian mansion that has tons of nooks and crannies, spooky corners and old portraits of children that probably come alive at night and wander the halls. My husband said it looks like somewhere you could have a real live Clue game. There are a ton of stained glass windows and chandeliers and... More

The Waverley was our last stop on our two week tour of Nova Scotia and PEI. The inn is very lovely full of lovely period furniture and gracious rooms. We walked everywhere as the inn is centrally located in the Dalhousie university area three blocks up from pier 21. It is a walk up and has three floors but that... More

Beautiful room, free parking and a wonderful breakfast, what more could you ask for. How about a terrific location!! At the top of our must-see list was The National Immigration Museum at Pier 21 as well as the Blue Nose II. Within 15 minute walk of the Inn we were at the harbour. Excellent place to stay.......although we did hear... More

We stayed one night at the beginning of our trip and two nights near the end. It's a well-maintained historic property in an excellent location. The continental breakfast included ham, hard-boiled eggs, potatoes, and pancakes as well as cereals, yogurt, breads and pastries. (You would be hard-pressed to start the day hungry, although the coffee can be a bit rough.)... More

We spent our one night in Halifax at the Waverley House. It is a lovely old building, Our room was plenty spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Very comfortable and clean room. Friendly and efficient staff. More than adequate Continental breakfast downstairs. Everything except shopping malls within walking distance, and restaurants by the dozens! Close to the Railway Station, where there is a Thrift Rental Car. The only thing missing to make this perfect was equipment to boil water and make tea or instant coffee. A minor... More

This old hotel has been tastefully remodeled to its original style. The rooms are varied but furnished very comfortably. The room comes with a buffet breakfast. Although the front room we stayed in was beautiful, it suffered a bit from noise bleed from the bar across the street. Recommend a room to wards the back. Plenty of parking include in... More
