We stayed 3 days here. The hotel looks brand new, apparently it was a Comfort Inn before but it has been newly renovated and it shows. Our room was spotless clean and roomy enough for our family of 4. Breakfast food is good and varied, they have a pancake machine that was a favorite with our children. You have to...

We arrived late at night to most of the city being without power due to lightening. The man at the front desk got us our room keys and checked us in very efficiently without power. We had no idea what our room would look like as we had not stayed at this particular hotel before. The power came back on...

We booked this hotel last minute on our way from PEI to Halifax and we did so as my husband had stayed here a couple of years ago and thought it was a great place for the location and money. What he didn't realise was that this hotel has been completely renovated and it was even better than we expected....

This Hotel is unique and in a great location.. Far away enough not to get into traffic yet close enough to get into Halifax or Dartmouth. Highway is close enough for a Peggy's Cove jaunt. ( I recommend highly) We stayed in a second floor suit next to the stairs (don't do it) guest used this door non stop to...

Very clean and comfortable at this hotel. The place looks brand new inside and out, newer styling in the lobby and the rooms were fresh and up to date. Had a really good sleep on the beds, I've always liked the IHG properties with their designated (and labeled!) firm and soft pillows. Really the best part was the black out...

Nice big rooms and a breakfast included. 20 min's outside Halifax and close to a big box mall with all the restaurants. Recommended for people on a budget to Halifax area. This was the only hotel with rooms on our visit.

Slept very well here as the beds are super comfortable. Excellent staff and very clean rooms! Hot buffet breakfast starts at 6:30 with lots of choices. Easy driving access off 102 and a good central point when touring the area!

A fresh design awaits you at this location. Inspired by the hues of "blue", the new look creates a beautiful and sincere look and feel. Experience space and openness as soon as one walks into the foyer. Even the front desk has been designed as "pods" to contribute to professional yet comfortable customer service and dialogue.
