Free parking, easy to find, central location within walking distance of most major attractions, bars and restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff. A quick efficient check in. Small but spotless room with everything we needed. The bed, a double room, was...

Stayed here a couple of times now. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the room rate is very competitive. If you are looking for a change from a soulless chain hotel room this is it. Will take you back to a time when quality mattered, but still provide all the modern requirements. Ideal location and a lovely place...

What an amazing beautiful gem this place is. My 2 girlfriends and I just stayed here the past weekend for 2 nights with multiple discussions on how we would ever be able to stay in a regular hotel after experiencing the Waverley Inn downtown Halifax. Upon arrival we were greeted by amazing staff to receive our parking passes (as there...

A wonderful hotel from the past. The room was small but charming. Clean bathroom. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Morning breakfast was delicious. The hotel itself is right from the turn of the century and is like a walk back in time. Outstanding. Note there is no elevator to the upper floors.

We had one of the smaller rooms, but still quite nice. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The room was charming. The halls and grand parlor were beautifully decorated for Christmas. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The Waverely Inn is much more charming than any chain hotel.

Firstly it is in a perfect location downtown Halifax, it is five minutes from the harbour, three minutes from four good restaurants. It isn't expensive, the staff are kind and...
