A Hidden gem in the North

A travel blog entry by rossport


G,day All,

Well here we are in Nova Scotia the area that the Canadians forgot to tell us about, except if you are a cruiser on a ship and believe me there is far more to see than a 4hour tour down to Peggy's Cove and back to the cruise ship. The town was one of the original points of entry into Canada thousands and thousands of people past …

Hello city!

hello city, yeah! a great summer in hali or so it seems. arrived early in the night and started by grabbing a burger and pint at a pub with live music. pretty sure it was carlo zota (from 24 and little mosque on the prairie) at the table next to me.

next day slept in (as best i could) and went outside for brunch on the patio of the five …

Halifax Citadel

A travel blog entry by larry_shirley


... anti aircraft command center, and a parting symbol for thousands of troops who took ships overseas for the battlefields of Europe.

Several years ago, Canadian troops who occupied the fort provided narrated tours for visitors to the Citadel. Some years ago, they contracted out this function with period correct docents.

We were able to watch the changing of the guard that occurs every hour. Also, while we were there, we made sure that we watched ...

... the portion sizes will be like but I will let you know!

We are not sure of
the internet access over the next little while. We might have some in some
places but definitely not when we are sleeping in a tent! Our plan is to slowly
make our way to the most northerly point of Newfoundland where we are looking
forward to celebrating the iceberg festival.

See you then.


Off We Go!

... that I have ever been through. Once we found immigration, we still could not figure out where the heck to go for connecting flights. The rude man at the Currency Exchange would not take my coin so I came up with Plan B. After we finally found someone to ask where the heck we should go for our flight, we had to hurry up and wait some more because our flight had not been assigned a gate yet. So I I'd currency exchange with the kids who needed ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Delta Barrington Halifax

    Surprisingly good service


    Having experienced a generous range of accomodation from dingy interstate motels to world-class boutique properties, I thought I knew what to expect from the Delta Barringron - a typical "midsized, midrange" hotel with clean, comfortable rooms a cut above your Days Inn or Howard Johnson, with serviceable hospitality.

    Great stay


    The rooms were a little small, but very clean, with good facilities. The staff were very friendly and approachable. Would stay there again.

    Great place


    We stayed at the Barrington for 10 days, great hotel and location.

    Central to the waterfront, enjoyed the Tall ships,Natal day, Buskers and Frank the Bell hop went out of his way for us.

    grat hotel, give it a try you wont be disappointed.

    Excellent stay


    Stayed 2 nights in July 2004. The staff was so friendly that we truly felt welcome here. The bellmen/valet's were very courteous and helpful. Location was superb. The room was above average. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Felt special


    Excellent experience. I got a great deal ($149 cdn) with my Entertainment card for a Signature Club room with excellent bedding and bath with robes, free pre-dinner hors d'oevres and breakfast (yum!) in the Signature Club Lounge. Connected to the Casino Nova Scotia by a pedway. Excellent value I thought. Would return. It's about a $40 taxi ride from the airport (as is most everything).

    Don't judge a book by it's cover!


    My husband and I just returned from one of the worst hotel experiences we've ever had. We stayed at the Delta Barrington Hotel in Halifax, and this was the first and last time we will be guests at that hotel. First of all, this hotel is way over-priced, in my opinion. The rooms were not sound-proof at all. Rooms which run for $300 and up should be completely sound-proof, and you should not be able to hear your neighbors at all hours during the night. The first night we were there, we were awoken 4 times by the noises coming from the room next to ours. We contacted the front desk, who offered another room to us. After moving all of our items to the new room, we were awoken yet again by the noise coming from the room next door. We realized that we had been given an adjoining room, and we could even hear the conversation coming from behind the adjoining door. If that wasn't bad enough, room service forgot to tend to our room the second day we were there, and we returned later that night to find nothing had been done. Upon check-out, we discovered that all the "extras" that were initially listed, were actually things that we had to pay for. We were not advised of this when we checked in, but were informed of that in tiny fine print on the release form we had to sign upon check out. I asked the staff about this before I paid, and they said that I would have had to inform them I didn't want these "extras" before we checked in, and now it was too late. Well, we were not informed of any such charges upon check-in, nor was it written anywhere that there would be an extra charge. For example, the morning paper was not free. It was automatically placed outside our door (we did not ask for it), and we assumed it was free. Oh, and by the way, the view from the rooms was absolutely horrible. The windows were the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel. You would think that for the price this hotel charges, the windows would be bigger, and the view nicer. The windows were so small you could hardly see anything outside.Anyway, I could go on and on but bottom line is this hotel is not worth the money it costs to stay there. Maybe you are paying for all the brass in the elevators ... who knows? I'd rather save my money and stay at Howard Johnson's next year.

    Delta Barrington is a Great Place


    The Delta Barrington was an excellant place to stay. We were in Harfax 9/16 to 9/25/03. The employees could not have been nicer--from the bell boy who brought in our luggage to the girls behind the desk and the employees on the floors, were friendly, treated us very well and took care of our every need. The only problem we saw was the room was a little small for 4 people, but that worked out ok too. We had a great view of the waterfront, the ships & boats. We were in walking distance to that as well as many other places we visited during the international meeting we were attending. Food was great. All in all we were very pleased with the Barrington for these days we were there. I doubt if we will ever be in that area again, however if we were I would stay at the Barrington.

    Delta Barrington is exceptional!


    Whenever we stay in Halifax we always stay at the Delta Barrington because of it's excellant location, quality amenities, and the most exceptional staff we have ever met in all our travels. They are so warm and friendly, and they always go above and beyond to make you feel that you are their top priority. This hotel is simply the best in the Maritimes!

    Great Location


    We recently made a trip to Nova Scotia and chose the Delta Barrington because of its location. We are glad we made the choice. Just about everything is within walking distance which enabled us to walk to the Metro Complex for the Military Tattoo and the waterfront, historic properties, etc. We took a taxi between the airport and hotel and then returned to the airport to pick up a rental car. This eliminated any need to drive or park within the city. The Delta Barrington is comfortable and clean, the room service was very good, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be exceptional. They are certainly doing many right things!

    Decent location


    Good waterfront location but too expensive. The bar is cozy in the winter, but yeah...just too expensive for Halifax.
