“A hotel reflective of Halifax's culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I felt like I was staying in an Art Museum. The place was stunning. Everything decor wise was Vintage. We stayed in the Standard room which was a double bed, so it was a little tiny; but other than that the room was great. I loved the fact that the vanity was outside of the bathroom making the sink and mirror accesible at all times. It was very romantic. The front desk staff were very helpful, and knowledgeable about the inn. Great location to downtown everything was a stones throw. BONUS: FREE PARKING DOWNTOWN & FREE BREAKFAST!

Room Tip: Book on Hotels.com great prices!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Waverley. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast in the morning was very good with lots of options hot and cold. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. We were on the ground level and had to deal with some street noise...

We left another B&B that was not as close as we were told to downtown for the Waverly...wish we would have just started off here! Excellent location to everything downtown, within walking distance (no more long bus rides!) staff was SUPER FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL! Great experience overall!

We travel to Halifax on a monthly basis. We have stayed in all the major hotels, We stay here now almost exclusively. There is no better value in downtown Halifax. Parking, wireless and breakfast is included. The property is clean, the staff helpful and personable. The location is excellent for those who wish to walk the city. It is close to some lovely restaurants.

We made this reservation online based on trip advisor and google maps! We were thoroughly pleased with our decision. Our room was nicely decorated with period pieces, and spotlessly clean. We appreciated being able to control the room temperature ourselves. The bathroom was clean and well appointed.
The breakfasts were great! Lots of variety - one would have no excuse for going away hungry! They offered everything from dry cereal with fresh fruit and yoghurt to french toast, hashbrowns, even brown beans!
Staff were helpful and extremely friendly. The location was perfect - lots of restaurants nearby and walking distance to just about everything downtown.
Would definitely recommend this place!

Room Tip: Street noise from blues bar across the street. Okay if you like the blues. If not, I would choose a...
