      Historical Traveler Reviews The Halliburton Halifax

      Helpful service

      from

      Less luxurious and smaller than expected (think London hotel), our room was comfortable enough. The continental breakfast, served in the restaurant, ranks among the better we have enjoyed. What most impressed us was the helpfulness of the staff. Our airline "misplaced" our bags, and several of the front desk staff went out of their way to help us track them down. While certainly no bargain, the Halliburton House was a reasonably pleasant place to stay in Halifax.

      Did Not Meet Expectations

      from

      August 2004

      After reading recommendations for this hotel in several leading travel magazines and this website, my stay at the inn simply did not meet my expectations. While the location was fine and the front desk service commendable, the property was in need of some long overdue attention. I noticed many of the walls enroute to our room were badly marked. Our room's door frame had peeling paint and discovering a dirty towel on the hook on the bathroom door was unacceptable. The size of the air conditioning "window" unit made it somewhat difficult to walk around the living room. While the unit adequately cooled the living room, it took much longer for any cooling effect to be felt in the bedroom. The inclusive breakfast was adequate, but nothing to write home about. I was not impressed.

      The nicest place we stayed in the Maritimes!

      from

      We had the pleasure of staying at the Halliburton House Inn July 19 and 20th, 2004. The rooms are beautiful and very nicely decorated. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The location was nice and close to the harbourfront. The courtyard outside was a great place to sit and have a glass of wine in the afternoon or a cup of coffee in the morning. There are nice little patio tables and umbrellas set up there alongside a lovely garden and the most adorable frog fountain. We dined in the inn's restaurant "Stories" our first evening. My 13 yr. old son had his first truly gourmet meal - choice cuts of caribou,venison,quail and game sausage. He was in heaven! My husband had an amazing Asian scallop appetizer . The menu is wonderful.There is a continental breakfast set up in the diningroom each morning that was lovely, great fruit, breads and cold cuts. The sitting room in the main inn was a nice place for an after dinner drink and I really enjoyed reading bits from the "Stories" book - visitors are encouraged to write words of wisdom or their own story on what brought them to the Maritimes, in a lovely bound book.The roads were under construction while we were there so getting to the inn was a little tricky but we would definitely go back.

      Great spot, in downtown Halifax, Food A+

      from

      What a great spot. We stayed for three nights, enjoyed the "Courtyard" every morning for coffee. "Stories" Fine Dining was just super, the menu, the ambiance, the staff, all great. Easy to get to, no need to drive when going downtown, 10-15 minute walk takes you most places. A+ for our

      rating..... many great restaurants within 10 minutes...check out the Five Fisherman another gem.....

      My Favorite Inn...Anywhere

      from

      What a gem! A 4-Star Historic Inn in the heart of downtown Halifax. It sounds too good to be true, but Halliburton House Inn is located only one block from the true centre of the city, and 2 blocks from the waterfront. While most know the Inn as THE place to eat in Halifax, it's also a great place to stay. Constant and conscientious tweaking of the inn's accommodations, appearance, and menu complement the consistent quality of service. The service is friendly yet professional, and the inn is small enough to remain unhurried in every way. It is the only 4-star inn in the city and the only one I've found that is worth staying in. I recommend this gem to one and all!

      Halifax's Great Inn

      from

      I have had the pleasure of staying at the Halliburton House at least twice a year for the past 8 years. Over that time the hotel has become my favourate place to stay. The new restaurant has provided me with excellent meals and the real fireplaces in the rooms are a great touch for the home away from home feel. Downtown is just a block away as well as the waterfront for a walk.

      I always recomend the Haliburton House and look forward to my next stay!!

      Okay But Not Great

      from

      We stayed here for two nights in August 2003. Some facts: 1) Pub is next door making it somewhat loud; 2) Pub parking part of B&B parking... if you come in late you park farther away; 3) Accomodations vary tremendously...Some antiques but not cozy and beds not very comfortable; Room first night very tacky but larger (not worth the $175 we had to pay); Room second night cute but WAY too small (also not worth the $100); 4) B&B is BLOCKS away from "activities" (at least a 15-20 minute walk); 5) Breakfast standard with cereal, muffins, bagels, fruit... coffee was terrible and 6) Evening menu looked good but we didn't eat here. Would we stay again: No. Clean but over-priced and too far away from downtown.

      Haliburton Inn - too noisy

      from

      I stayed at the Haliburton House in July of 2003. I was booked at this "quiet" hotel for 4 nights but moved hotels after 2. The first night I discovered that my room backed onto Bearsley's pub which played loud live music until 2 a.m. with its back doors open. The night morning the staff setting up for breakfast woke me at 5 a.m. I asked to be moved but the only available rooms were more than double what I was paying (with no guarantee of being a lot quieter). I was alone and did not need a suite. I do believe that it is unreasonable to rent a room that you know is too noisy to sleep in. I found a room around the corner at the Waverly Inn for the same rate and moved the next day. The staff at the Waverly told me that the noise from Bearsley's is common knowledge around Halifax - and surely not a surprise to the Haliburton House Inn. I think the Haliburton House should have warned me about the noise or upgraded me without charge or helped me find a place to move it. Do most people stay up until 2 a.m.????

      My recommendation for Halifax

      from

      I go to Halifax several times a year and ALWAYS stay at the Halliburton. It is an historical site, located conveniently to the wharf and other attractions as well as downtown. They have a well-trained staff, comfortable rooms and a great chef who just keeps getting better! Plus, the Halliburton has free parking.

      Anniversary

      from

      We live in Halifax, NS so decided to spend our anniversary at the inn. We had a lovely 1 bedroom suite with working fireplace and enjoyed a delicious 3 course dinner in their dining room. We would definately go back. Lots of charm and ambience.

      Sunday morning we met a few of Sarah and Bens friends for brunch at an amazing place called The Stubborn Goat.

      Woke up to cooler weather in the low 40's light rain. Spent part of the morning checking out the quaint town of Baddeck, NS. Then drove over 200 miles to Halifax, NS. Temps stayed in the 40's all day & frost is predicted tomorrow morning. Here's a few things we noticed that are different from the US: Gas is sold in Liters vs Gallons Cape Brenton Highland National Park - Full ...

      Fish, Fish, and more Fish!

      As most of you know, my husband is a lover of the fish variety. That's eating fish, fishing itself, and possibly even cooking fish (which I don't allow all that much because of the rank odour that lingers.) So today we took a break away from the eating of the fish and found ourselves a fishing tour.  We embarked at a solid 10am from the harbour right beside our hotel - pretty darn convenient if I do say so myself! We were surprised that our boat was so ...
