    Historical Traveler Reviews The Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites Halifax

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful find!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Good Choice

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    Wonderful hotel in Halifax - right across the street from the beautiful public gardens. Service was excellent and would go back tomorrow!

    Fantastic!

    from

    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! ;)

    As part of the price we even received a continental breakfast which we feasted on every a.m. in the hotel pub. Very yummy and comfortable. Never once did we feel out of place. I would stay here again. But I think next time I may stay at his sister hotel the Prince George (closer to the downtown). Have fun!

    Excellent!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... our own accommodation which apparently held significance in Saint John's history. The Chipman Hill Suites at 71 Sydney St was also known as the White House as it was owned by Lt. Colonel Dr. White from the time of its construction in 1891 until his death at 89 in 1952. Perhaps another reason for its reference as the White house was due to the fact that Lt Colonel Dr White had been mayor of Saint John from 1902 to 1906, and again from 1930 to 1935. From our accommodation we proceded ...

    Having been up since around 0430 we were a little tired although full of adrenaline at this point for the excitement of seeing a new city and country! Sleep eventually caught up with us and we had a long sleep.

    The following day we spent relaxing, planning and booking things for the next few weeks of our trip. We went for a brief walk and took some photos, which you will see here. We did not explore fully as we are planning ...

    The original schedule was to arrive in Halifax, NS around 7:00 AM for dock departures to various excursions beginning at 8:15 AM. However, something seemed wrong when at 8 we were still in the Halifax Bay. The captain made the announcement the local Halifax boat pilots required to maneuver the boat in the local bay were all unavailable due to heavy ship traffic. Expected dock time was going to be 9:00 ...
