Just got back from 2 weeks in the Canadian Maritimes. This Inn is located near the wharf, and Pier 21 attractions. We were able to leave our car in the free parking lot and walk to sites. Nice breakfast buffet, comfortable room, and free Internet service. We had a room on the first floor, away from the street, and it was very quiet. Lovely sitting area.

This is a great place to stay, plenty to see and do in walking distance. Right downtown. The decor is charming. The service outstanding. The breakfast was not especially great, but that is about all I could complain about. And I'm stretching to find something that was not perfect.

Room Tip: I actually liked staying on the ground floor. It created very easy access to the rooms from our vehi...

Stay here regularly whenever we need to go to Halifax. The decor is charming, the rooms are comfortable and the staff very gracious and attentive. Super location with several nice restaurants nearby. If you are looking for old charm this is the place.

Vanja and I enjoyed both stays at The Waverley Inn. We spent two nights there at the beginning of May, at the onset of a three week tour of the Atlantic Provinces, and two nights at the end of the three weeks. Both rooms were on the main floor. The first room was a little nicer , particularly the bathroom - the one right beside the check in desk, but both were lovely, spotless, with very comfortable beds. The old world charm of the building is very special, the desk staff are welcoming, warm, helpful and thoughtful. The breakfast provided offered a nice hot variety every day, with an ample cold selection, juices and hot beverages. Parking is free and on site. Wifi was speedy and worked well. The location is right downtown on Barrington - very central and within walking distance of the harbour and a half a block from The Henry House for a delicious bowl of "English Onion Soup" or a great before dinner drink.

Room Tip: The room right beside the office is the only sound proof room in the building. The other one we stay...

the good - close to downtown
includes parking and continental breakfast
the bad - the decor is old ugly antiques and ugly wallpaper
the staff talks about the guests within earshot of other guests and they are not friendly
the building is rumored to be haunted, and someone tried to get in my room one night at 4 am. I phoned the desk, they said they would be up to look around, they didn't come up.
it's across the street from a very noisy jazz bar and a hostel
don't stay in one of the rooms off the lobby, too noisy, especially the one beside the coffee/snak table
there is no elevator, so long way up if you have mobility issues
it's an old old building, so i found it quite cold in my room, took forever to get it to warm up with those old radiators

Room Tip: do not get a room near the lobby, there are 3 rooms off the lobby, it is way too noisy. Do not get...

Fantastic place, such decor and history! We stayed as a family of three in a two double bed room. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and the decor was gorgeous! The breakfast included was also quite good, the location is excellent, not far from Alexander Keiths, Spring Garden Road, or the waterfront. I would return for sure.

What a great place to stay. Beautiful rooms and a great price for Halifax. So many historic figures stayed here. I was in a room Oscar Wilder stayed in. Clean and great staff. You are away from the core but a very short walk to it. Some good restaurants around it also.
