We stayed here for a wedding & guests had pretty much a whole floor. The rooms were large clean & quiet. The meal at the wedding was excellent, turkey with all the trimmings, plus dessert that was to die for. The waiters at the meal were fine, but front desk ladies were the crankiest we've seen in a while. People... More

We had a great time at chocolate hotel for my birthday and our anniversary. The King room in the tower facing the lake was excellent. Thank you to Michelle W for the great weekend and special touches!! I would definitely recommend this hotel for their tower rooms facing the lake. As for the other rooms, you should read the reviews... More

This hotel is the only one in Halifax that allows large dogs. Although it is a bit of a challenge to find, the hotel is very comfortable and offers free breakfast. If one is not used to the Armdale Rotary, it can be a challenge to find this hotel. Once navigated, the hotel is easy to find and convenient for... More

We recently stayed at the Best Western Chocolate late as a last minute shopping trip. The location is ideal, minutes away from the Halifax Shopping Center and Bayers Lake. Our room included breakfast which was excellent. Even though it was a continental breakfast, the chef was very accommodating to my husbands milk allergy and made him his own scrambled eggs.... More

stayed here for four days in November. Check-in was fine but after that my stay was really sub-standard. The suite was old and musty and I tripped over the lumpy carpeting more than once. The hotel has very thin walls and was very very noisy. I could not order breakfast even though the buffet food was gone. I could not... More

Nothing bad to say about this hotel. Close to downtown Halifax. There is a Needs store right next door, which came in very handy a couple of times. We were in the city for medical appointments and the hotel provided us with a special rate for that reason. Would recommend to anyone.

Staff very helpful and courteous. Restaurant is very good and staff very helpful. Not recognized as diamond members. Our suite is spacious and nice. Out of town a bit so have to drive to see sights and shop. Older hotel but clean and refreshed. I would stay again.

Stayed there for two nights and requested a certain area of the hotel, our request was met with no problems . We checked in early with no problems as we were going to be busy for the day and didnt want to wait till evening to check in. Accommodations were great.
