we made this reservation on trip advisor before we left. what a nice find. it's location was just perfect, you could walk to most anywhere in the area and just leave your car. the breakfast was a continental type and it was good. we liked it so much we booked another night 10 days later before leaving halifax and nova scotia.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the first floor, since there are no elevators you would have to carry your lugg...

When we first arrived at the Waverly we were ecstatic over the location, value and appearance of the place. The location is great. Access to the boardwalk, Dalhousie area, the Public Gardens and all the touristy stuff was a quick walk...within minutes of getting in the room we confirmed a second night's stay. It really had the unique qualities of a B&B, and the food was great. If you like non-chain inns, and don't need a GIANT room this is the place. I have no complaints...except that we didn't have time to stay longer.

Room Tip: We had just a queen/whirlpool on the second floor. There was no elevator, but we had no trouble.

Stayed here one night in early October and even though I had the room right beside the front desk, this is a wonderful inn and I will certainly stay here again. It's a great location, on the south side of downtown, and therefore easy to walk to almost anywhere. Staff were most welcoming and provided any information I needed. The room was very comfortable with nice antiques and modern touches where needed. Complimentary breakfast in the morning was better than some restaurants charge for. This In stands out from among all hotels by giving you a chance to get away from the "chain" feeling of standard hotels. If you get the chance, you'll even your stay here.

This Inn has a great location: walking distance to the town center and the waterfront board walk. Easy parking provided, very clean, comfortable beds, good service, the breakfast was a bit underwhelming. But the place oozes charm and history: Oscar Wilde slept in this Inn many year ago and you still feel like you might run into him in the salons or hallway!

We arrived in Halifax on a rainy Saturday afternoon and were delighted to find our sanctuary at the Waverley Inn. The four poster bed was grand and incredibly comfortable. The room furniture was sturdy and very well designed. We stayed on the first floor and didn't have any problems with the noise. Downtown Halifax is not a large area - we were able to walk everywhere right from the hotel. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Can't ask for more. Friendly staff, terrific location, comfortable room, and pleasant parlor for sitting around. Good breakfast to start you off on walking to the piers, restaurants, shops and pubs.

Checking in to the Waverley Inn we were greeted by the friendliest desk clerk we have ever met. We felt like we had arrived home after a long journey. The antique furnishings in our room were elegant and comfortable and the location of this lovely hotel could not be more convenient. We parked the car in the hotel lot and enjoyed walking everywhere, including our clerk's recommendation that we take in the farmer's market, (the hotel even supplied a cloth bag for this purpose - brilliant marketing!). Breakfast was a pleasant surprise, a very homey-feeling buffet, simply presented and delicious. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Waverley for making our stay in Halifax a delightful ending for our Maritime road trip.

Room Tip: We peeked in several of the rooms and they all looked wonderful, with beautiful furniture. Our room...
