Got up and went to the front desk to get a coffee. Sat outside overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Got ready to go for a run in the Irving Nature park. Ran on the beach and walked on a trail. Walked on a boardwalk out into the marsh. Back to the hotel and get ready to leave. Showered in the pink tub. Drove to the reversing waterfall. Tide was not right …
This morning we awoke to clouds laden with rain. It had rained already overnight as the bikes were wet, but it wasn't raining as we loaded them up and started on our way, however 10 minutes into our ride it began and didn't let up until we got into Halifax. The ride itself was fairly uneventful. We took Hwy 4 to the causeway and made good time, …
Day 1 (April 14th): The day started very early for me, can you say working all night before heading out on the trip. Katie's mom was kind enough to pick us up and take us to the airport. It was nice leaving the busy Toronto morning behind. Once dropped off we whisked through check in and security. After a trip to Tim Hortons we were on our way. …
... which had an interesting concept, whereby, you could look into the kitchen back and below the eating area. Shirley ordered an appetizer that was more of a meal of two fish cakes with sun dried tomato chutney served on maple baked beans. I had a broiled salmon served on a very tasty sauce with citrus couscous, grilled asparagus, and baby carrots. We also had a basket of various fresh baked breads right out of the ...
... and I did see first hand why he calls himself 'Mr Inflexible'. At our first port - Bar Harbor, Maine - we had intended to do a hike in the Acadia Mountains, but we were too late booking and the tour was booked out; this was a bit disappointing but left us with some free time to explore Bar Harbor by ourselves (and take advantage of the town's free wifi). Bar Harbor isn't actually a very big harbour, so we had to catch a tender into the town - a chilly, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites Halifax
We checked into this hotel on the July 6th. The location was great. We were treated very graciously and the room we had was very spacious and beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. A gentleman named Russell went above and beyond the call of duty when he assisted in finding us an emergency dentist at 9pm in the evening when my husband had a dental emergency! He was kind and attentive and we appreciated all he did for us. As a travel agent, I would not hesitate to recommend it to my clients or stay there myself in the future. The restaurant/pub had a wonderful fish chowder, also highly recommended!
Nice but a bit worn
They have the attitude of a fancy hotel but the place is a bit worn but clean. It is several blocks away from all of the tourist activities, but too close to drive anywhere. The walk includes very large hills and is creepy in the evening. Most of the staff seemed pre-occupied.
We visited Halifax in early May of 2005 and had a wonderful stay at The Lord Nelson Hotel. It's located around the corner from the famous Citadel, and directly across the street from the beautiful Victorian public gardens. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. We also had breakfast in the old Victory Arms pub onsite and were pleasantly surprised to find a pub/bar that didn't smell like cigarettes! Our comfortable and nicely-furnished suite overlooked the public gardens and made us feel like we were at home rather than in a hotel room. I highly suggest trying The Lord Nelson. You won't be disappointed!
It Has Come A Long Way
My stay at the Lord Neslon was a real priveldge. It was my "home" away from home. You are not just staff providing excellent service, you are like family. Thanks again
Stayed about five nights here in June a couple of years ago. While the room was somewhat small, it was clean and comfortable and worth the price paid, compared to other similar properties. Was pleased to note that the renovation maintained the original style of the entrance and reception area while restoring them to their past beauty and charm. It has a fine location and I would recommend it.
Loved the Lord Nelson hotel
stayed one night in June 2004, loved the hotel and staff were excellent. One night only as we were on a tour, and I can honestly say it was by far the best accommodation we had all the trip. Hope to return again some day.
Regal Lord Nelson
Wonderful hotel in Halifax - right across the street from the beautiful public gardens. Service was excellent and would go back tomorrow!
Fanastic hotel! No problems. Hotel room was clean if not a bit dark (furniture). It was facing a construction site but that was fine by my sis and I as we were out sight seeing most of the day. Plus we had the air con on all day so we never heard a peep even when the workers were at work. Bathroom was newly fitted and clean. The Neutrogena products were a nice accent after a long day running around down town Halifax. Got the room at a steal of a rate $129 CAD through www.novascotia.com. Check it out! The Lord Nelson is right on Spring Garden and close to everyhting. Nice restaurants and shopping. When you come up the walk of the hotel it looks like your staying at a palatial estate. True in a sense. Hotel lobby and lounge were well kept. Even when my sis and I were waiting in the lobby to catch the bus to the airport one of the guest services guys came by and asked us if we wanted a paper to read - nice. For a split second I thought he was gonna boot us out of the lobby! ;)
I stayed one night at the hotel and everything was excellent. Found the staff very friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere was nice and the rooms clean and had everything I needed. Will definitely stay there again when I come to Halifax.
Lord Nelson: Hit or Miss
The hotel looks very elegant and is in a great location. The service is also great, provided you are paying for it. Rooms range from luxry to much less than. In staying there on a business trip, I was treated like royalty. However, in staying there while on a tour, I was roomed in the old wing of the hotel. The furnishings are not at all up-to-date or in the best of repair. These rooms are not very appealing visually. They are tattered and don't look the cleanest. Also after being out for the day, we returned to a smoke filled room (in a non-smoking area). It would seem that someone from the staff or maid service had had a cigarette or two while tidying up.
