“Average B&B”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

We stayed in the Ascendence Harbourside Mansion Bed & Breakfast for two nights. The B&B showed some wear on the steps and in the common areas. The innkeepers willingly provided good information on attractions in the Halifax area. But, at times, the innkeepers dominated the conversation in areas that did not interest us. The rooms were nice, clean, but as I said before, showed some wear. The breakfasts were well prepared and good.

We only stayed one night. The bed and breakfast is a pleasant old house. Nice breakfast. Friendly owners. Not too far from Halifax down town. If you want lots of good of advice on where to go and what to see around Halifax this is the place to stay.

Reviewed 4 October 2012

We stayed 3 nights while travelling with another couple. The rooms were excellent and bed quality great. Quit at night but there is significant road noise from Bedford highway in the morning. We rented the jacuzzi room which my wife really enjoyed. Breakfasts were not available until 8:30 am. This is late for travellers; but the Owner did serve us at 8 AM before we left for the airport. Very challenging entrance driveway and parking lot. Stair access is required to 3 of 4 rooms.

Reviewed 28 September 2012

We were looking for a comfortable place to stay for two days of sightseeing. The location is a short drive from the Harbour area but was easy to get to and the host gave us a tip for free parking. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. Our hosts were very accomodating and welcoming. They arranged for us to get into our rooms early and for an early morning breakfast on our day of departure. They provided us with lots of helpful information to guide our sightseeing. The house is on the historic register and has the character of the era. The furnishings and decor are eclectic ... very much a reflection of the owners' personalities. This young couple is interesting, very friendly and interested in giving guests a great experience. We had a really great stay.

6 for awesome!
Our room was big, clean and modern. Perfect Breakfast: Fresh Fruits, super service, nice conversation with the host about the history of the house. The hosts actually are young, friendly and obliging!
They gave us excellent tips for sightseeing, food, bars and shopping too.

Reviewed 6 August 2012 via mobile

We stayed two nights while traveling with another couple. Our room was comfortable and I slept well. The furnishings were antique. I thought it was odd that their dining room table did not accommodate eight people. There are only four rooms and when everyone arrived for breakfast one couple had to wait. There was a tall table to stand at that was set for two people, but the couple decided to wait so they could sit down. The breakfast food was good. The driveway and parking were extremely tight. There's no view of the water because a large condo blocks their view. The hosts are pleasant and energetic. The rooms were not made up during the day and that is unusual at least from the experiences I've had staying at B&B's. The inn is on the outskirts of town in an industrial area, but it was a shortdriveto downtown Halifax.
