“A surprisingly fantastic view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

I knew this hotel was named after Chocolate Lake but I underestimated just how close it was.. literally right on the lake - so beautiful!!
Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and excellent food in the restaurant.
If you're looking for a quiet place not too far from downtown, I highly recommend.

We were here for our 45 wedding anniversary trip. We took a VIA Rail trip from Vancouver BC to Halifax. We were welcomed with open arms and all that we asked for was arranged. They had a chocolate Labrador retriever that lives at the front desk and is available for guest to take for walks. We were only there for four days but this hotel became a home away from home.

We are planning an extended trip to Halifax and will use this Best Western as our base. Rooms were clean, food was standard restaurant fare but well served and priced. We entertained family for a desert evening and were well pleased. They arranged cars, airport information, site seeing locations and in general were extremely helpful.

Our second hotel on our trip, they were fantastic in getting us a room last minute. Staff was great and friendly and the rooms were clean, with all the main necessities. However, I previously called beforehand to see if they had laundry services and they said yes. When I got there they said they had been out of laundry soap for a day, and they didn't bother telling me that on the phone. Everything else was good though

We got in late and it was drizzling and foggy, but we didn't have any problems finding the hotel. The parking lot is a little tight up top, but there is a large parking area down and to the right of the entrance that is not so tight (also there's a good view of the lake). The suite was very nice, as was the breakfast the next morning. The resident pet is a nice touch....

hotel is very decent, clean, nicely decorated, stayed here 4 times, some minor glitches, pool walls could use a cleaning, had to call front desk for towels every time you use the pool. we stayed in suite, great room, couch is brutal to sit on, but layout is decent, beds are comfortable. staff are very friendly, my kids love the dog that lives in hotel, very friendly dog. the worst thing about this hotel is breakfast buffet, it's a disaster, with both food and staff quantity.

Hi,

I stayed at the Best Western on Chocoloate Lake for a week back in August 2012 while on business. This hotel was great. The service and location were amazing. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from downtown Halifax and 40 minutes from Peggy's Cove. The Hotel is also located on a beautiful lake if you're into scenery. There is also a mall and restaurant plaza located about 5 minutes away where you can go for dinner or to shop (Walmart, Montanas, Jack Asters etc.). All in all if I am ever back in Halifax I'll definitely be staying at the Best Western Chocolate Lake.

Stayed here for one night in July 2013. The hotel seems like it's older, but our room was in good repair. The breakfast was fine for an included breakfast. Standard eggs, ham, waffles, but the tea biscuits were REALLY good.

No complaints.
