We were shocked 1 week before our trip to Halifax to find out that thr Haliburton had actually overbooked the hotel and we could not be accomodated. The owner Rob Pretty reserved a room for us in another very good hotel which probably cost him a fortune. As an apology he offered us a dinner for 2 at Stories. We accepted since he was truly sorry for the mix up. Well low and behold they were finally able to accomodate us after all and when we arrived to check in, offered us the dinner for 2 anyway.
The hotel is very well run and very quaint. Our 20th anniversary was lovely. We tried to go to Stories a second night but they were completly full. It is a spectacular restaurant and equal to any 5 star meal we have ever had.
If I had one complaint about the Haliburton it would be it's location. It is a good 15 to 20 min walk to all the restaurants and good shops. It is in what I would call a transitional area mostly populated with students from the university. I was hoping it would be a little closer to everything. We did allot of walking as parking in Halifax is not the best. Ienjoyed it but would not recommend it to any seniors or those who are not too mobile.
