We stay here every year for New Year's Eve and we were not disappointed this year, though Cocoa the dog was not around, which was a bit of a disappointment, but we got over it. We booked 3 rooms - a King, a Queen, and 2 Queens. The 2 Queen room was the one with a lake view, but it...

Happy New Year and thank you for your comments. Sorry you missed Cocoa, she was ringing in the New Year with her furry friends. It's the little things that make all the difference, and your feedback will help us tweak things for the better. Have a great 2016!

We have used this hotel repeatedly for many years since its renovation. Every visit has been pleasant and comfortable at a reasonable cost. An excellent dining room also distinguishes this hotel from any others as well as the amenities and locatipn of the hotel. We often recommend it to friends and colleagues without hesitation.

Quiet, nice view from the room of the lake. There was a dog that lived at the front desk that was exciting for my step-daughter. Good breakfast buffet! Only negatives were that parking was difficult, and that the pool was very cold.

The hotel is close to several things such as the Halifax Shopping Centre, the Armdale Rotary which leads to Quinpool Road area, St. Margaret's Bay, Purcell Cove area, etc. The receptionists are friendly and efficient. Our room was easily accessed from the elevator in the lobby and on our floor. Being on the ninth floor was great especially since there...

Thank you for your great review. We are indeed very central to a lot of great shopping areas, and an easy commute to wherever you may need to go in Halifax. The free parking, free breakfast, and free Wi-Fi makes us an obvious choice, in my humble opinion!

Highly recommend this clean, family friendly hotel. Just had an exceptional 4 night stay. Our room had a wonderful view of the lake. Peaceful and close to everywhere we needed to go. Staff were amazing and loved the resident Chocolate Labrador retriever Cocoa. Would return.

Central hotel at a great price. This hotel offers a very good free hot buffet breakfast with lots of choices. Parking is also included which is rare in this area. Very friendly staff and clean, comfortable rooms. Requested a couple things brought to our room and they were delivered right away. Would definitely return.

Excellent meal last night at the Lakeside Grill ! Great place to go with a group. Very tasty appetizers, and I had the Grilled Haddock. Have been living here for 30 years and have had haddock many, many places. The Lakeside's presentation made my jaw drop, and it was delicious. A pet peeve of mine is bar/restaurant wine prices.

My husband and I recently stayed 3 nights at this hotel. It was our first time staying here and we both loved it! Rooms were very clean and cozy, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The continental breakfast downstairs was delicious, just what we needed before a long day of shopping. We ate lunch one day at the Lakeside Grill...

This hotel is nice and the service is great but the beds are not comfortable and the parking is not the greatest. After traveling all day to get here and then there was no parking because they are hosting a Christmas party, I was very disappointed. The paid guest should get parking over the teenagers who came to the party...
