Breakfast, lunch, munchies after work or dinner - whatever the occasion, Inn on the Lake is the best kept secret in Halifax. The food is fabulous; service is great and the location is beautiful. Close to the airport; known better by travelers; loved by those of us who live near by.

Stayed here for work after a late flight into Halifax but probably should have just stayed at an airport hotel. There was no room service option and no elevator up to my room. Nice balconies but lots of highway noise. There is a lake and that's pretty but also there's a lot of traffic. Stayed for breakfast and it was... More

We stayed here for the first time while on business and we were so impressed! Rooms were extremely comfortable and location is minutes from the airport and right on the lake. Beautiful in the Fall with all of the Colors. A restaurant and pub are located right in the hotel and both offer wonderful menus. Each meal we had was... More

This Inn is spectacular! We had such a wonderful stay. Not only was the room clean and comfortable, the restaurant was 5 star! The best part, however, was the restaurant staff. Tammy who greeted us every morning with a smile and a great sense of humor and Jackie who is the BEST at recommending the perfect places to visit. Without... More

The inn on the lake has the most amazing staff,the grounds are impressive and immaculate. The inn itself is beautifully renovated. Our dining experience was beyond compare.We especially enjoyed our waiter Jamie.The food was great, the atmosphere and the service was 5 star. May I suggest the seafood fettuccine and seafood chowder? Amazing.Thank you I will recommend to anyone.

We stayed here while moving and found both the hotel and the staff exceeded out expectations. The staff were always very friendly, and making sure that if we needed anything that we were taken care of.

This is the first time we have stayed here since it became a Choice branded hotel; happily it is still a wonderful vintage hotel with great amenities and a superb restaurant. This was a romantic overnight to celebrate a special birthday; when we arrived at the room there was a split of Henkel and some chocolates; the spa room was... More

Shuttled from the airport directly to the Inn (fantastic). Very warm & welcoming staff. Room had a nice view of the lake with a walk out patio.

I met friends for a late lunch at the Inn, where they were booked for overnight. The Inn has an old world charm and very good food and service. The Seafood Casserole was beautifully presented, full of delicious seafood in a tasty lobster sauce, and topped with a fish shaped puff pastry! 5/5 to the chef. I started with a... More
