Very pleasant stay during Junior Hockey Tournament and My Mom's 100 birthday celebration at the Lakeside Bar and Grill. Absolutely no regrets, service was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. During our stay the Gym was always clean and available when needed. Hotel atmosphere was always upbeat and accommodating.

Hotel's Favourite
Nice Location, Close to downtown, very helpful staff. Limited breakfast selection due to Covid. You could go swimming in the lake right behind the hotel. If you like water, there is a small area behind the hotel that you could launch a small sail boat or paddle board also.

We stayed here for a night with our two small kids while work was being done on our house. Malika at front desk was THE BEST! She accomadated our special requests and was so welcoming and friendly. We would stay here again just based on how great she was.

We had a small suite and it was great. Beds were comfortable. The breakfast had lots of options, the room was clean and the arcade and pool was fun. The only thing I'd note is that the pool tiles are extra slippery (so be careful and keep a close eye on children running) and the pool is a bit cool. Great value and close to Halifax.

Dear 'K8ieT" We greatly appreciate you taking the time to share such positive feedback from your recent stay with us. We are very proud of our amenities and special offerings and we are so pleased that you enjoyed our complimentary breakfast buffet and the arcade! Our housekeeping team does reserve two daily times ( 11am-1130am and 400pm-430pm) to do a full clean of the pool and pool areas. I have shared your feedback with them so that we can ensure the pool tiles are dried at each cleaning time. We hope to welcome you and your family back again soon.

Overall a good experience, great customer service, however fireplace bulb was burnt out and not working. Soaker tub was described to have jets, which it did not and less than half a roll of toilet paper left in the washroom. All things that can be easily rectified. As said before they had great customer service.

Staff very welcoming when we arrived and lobby very well kept. The positives...great location if shopping, beds were comfortable, breakfast had lots of options, kids loved the retro arcade. The cons...room (we had a suite) was dated - doors didn't close properly, no extra bedding, tv didn't work. The pool is also dated but kids enjoyed it, Front desk staff were friendly and helpful but follow through from other staff was lacking...we needed extra bedding and towels and had to call 3-4 times before they were delivered.

Dear "jeffrY3406BU" Thank you for taking the time to leave us a very detailed review, one full of great compliments and feedback so that we may continue to improve to offer our guests the best possible experience. We are always happy to offer extra bedding upon request, though we certainly strive to have it delivered in a timely manner. I have shared your comments regarding the delay with my housekeeping manager and we are investigating to ensure that this is an isolated incident. I sincerely hope that we will be able to host you and your family for another visit in the near future.

We checked in at 3pm and we're offered a complimentary upgrade to double queen room with lake view. Checking was fast and efficient. Upon entry to the room it was noted that one of the bathroom bulbs was burnt out. Front desk had it replaced within a few minutes.

This property is our hotel of choice in Halifax and we stay there several times a year. While conveniently located to downtown, its location on Chocolate Lake with picnic tables and an outdoor patio for dining gives it a resort feeling. Staff have always been exceptionally helpful, including two weeks ago when my wife was convalescing from surgery and they were only too eager to provide additional items for our suite.

First outstanding feature is the sole rooftop covered handicap parking space at the entrance to the hotel. I am 10 weeks post op from total hip replacement surgery and the short distance from our car to hotel entrance, and the safe walking surface was critical during an evening downpour. The self serve coffee station has a number of choices for the discriminating coffee addict. The rooms are clean and well laid out. The complimentary breakfast choices extend beyond the average hotel fare.

A few issues made our trip a little inconvenient. We haven’t stayed here in for the pandemic so there are a few changes in the quality that we were expecting. The Wi-Fi was slow, our fridge was broke, our security lock on our door he’s not work, even so I was at a meeting at the hotel for two days I was unable to get late check out. Also there was no room service from the restaurant. Each one individually wasn’t a big deal, but everything added up it just made this day a little disappointing. I will probably give it one more try to see if this was a one time thing. I did get two free toothbrushes at the front desk when I asked.

Dear Kellie Happy New Year! Your business is very important to us and we value your feedback. By telling us what you liked about your stay and how we can improve, you are helping us deliver a superior experience for you and other guests in the future. I understand your disappointment on not having a late checkout but our standard check out time is 11:00 am , but we do inform guest incase they have to attend a meeting they could checkout and leave their luggage at the front desk .It was totally unexpected having your room lock not working , WIFI being slow and fridge being broken down .I understand this experience would have been awfully disappointing , we have made a note of it and have also informed the respective teams about this event and we hope this does not hamper your experience and you give us a chance to serve you again soon.
