Fresh Start Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #13 of 22 Halifax B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Our party of three adults stayed two nights at the Fresh Start in the "room at the top". The room was spacious, clean, and furnished with lovely antiques. There was a walkout veranda with a stunning view of the MacDonald bridge. The house itself is elegantly Victorian, with gorgeous original features.

Our hostess Sheila was considerate and accommodating and provided us each morning with an extensive, delicious breakfast full of different hot and cold options; you certainly won't leave hungry. In addition to Sheila, there was a friendly and talkative cat, Tigger, who is just as charming as the home itself! He was yet another delightful element to this wonderful bed and breakfast

There is off street parking in the back of the B&B, and it is only about a 5-minute drive to the centre of downtown Halifax. The location, warmth, and elegance of this bed and breakfast make it a perfect option for travellers to Halifax; it is absolutely worth your visit!

Room Tip: If you are an elderly traveller, or have very heavy bags, perhaps a room on the ground or first floo...

A charming and interesting Victorian house, full of character. The two lady owners are friendly and helpful. This lovely B&B is about as far away from a boring chain hotel as you can get! It has off road parking and it is close enough to walk into town.

Great stay at a nice B&B. Clean spacious rooms, great service and a wonderful breakfast. I can recommend this place. It is walking distance from the city centre, as well as being conveniently located in the city. Cheap and feeling of home.

Stayed here a couple of times while in Halifax. The ladies who own and care for the place and guests are awesome. Rooms are great and good value as well. The house is huge and has great character. The resident cat is always a charmer

I stayed for 2 nights when travelling in Halifax. I was able to get the room at half price due to a Deal Find coupon. I wouldn't pay full price to stay there-the place overall needs general upkeep and a good cleaning. The breakfast was not the usual nice items you would find in a bed and breafast, such as fresh homemade items, but there was lots of options (dry cereals, yoguart, fruit, muffins, etc.). The owner was friendly and the resident cat was great company.
