Spent several nights at the Fresh Start B&B in Halifax this August (2008).
Overall, not bad. The room was cute and cozy, with a view of the bridge, and everything was spotlessly clean. Shared bathroom had no shortage of towels, and a huge old-fashioned tub. The proprietor was friendly enough, but did not go out of her way to make our stay memorable.
Breakfast was fine. True, no hot breakfast here, but there was plenty of food available (muffins, bagels, cheese, jams, yogurt, fresh fruit, tea/coffee/juice, etc).
Parking available in the back. Downtown Halifax and the waterfront are a brisk 25min walk away. After dark I would recommend not walking up Gottingen, but to take Agricola (a tip given to us by a tour guide that dropped us off one night).
One thing to note - the quoted price on the phone did not match what I was charged at the end of the stay, so it may be prudent to confirm upon check-in what you're expected to pay.
