      Historical Traveler Reviews Waverley Inn Halifax

      Fabulous

      from

      I am a global traveller and I spent five nights at the Waverly Inn in January 2005 and I loved it. Very charming. It is effectively a country house hotel in downtown Halfax. It is an old Victorian townhouse stuffed with antiques and so much more tasteful than your run of the mill hotel and the rates are competitive as well. It is owner-operated. There is no restaurant but they run a very informal breakfast room offering a wide selection of food and drinks. Tea and homemade cakes are also available in the late afternoon. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed and very quiet, although in high season there might be more noise. Ask for a room at the back if you don't want to be facing the main street. The hotel is three stories but there is no elevator. The hotel is central to almost everything in Halifax- only 5-7 minutes walk maximum to most of the tourist sites. Highly recommmended.

      Very nice

      from

      My boyfriend and I spent a night at the Waverley in as a holiday stress reliever in the midst of lots of running around and visiting with relatives last year.

      The room was small, but beautifully furnished and the bed was fabulous. So comfortable! I wanted to take it home with me. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. I'm in my early twenties and was wandering around the hotel late at night in dirty jeans and sock feet late at night, and didn't feel a trace of snobbery directed at me. My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey, but I suppose that's to be expected when you take what seems like a luxury country B&B and put it in the middle of downtown. For the amount of time we got to spend there (about 12 hours) it probably wasn't worth the price. I'd highly recommend it for longer stays though, where the little touches like the evening tea and the great hospitality will really make a difference.

      Great stay

      from

      Sept 3/04. just checked out after 2 excellent nites here. Very well maintained and up to date, historic inn, a change from the anonymous chains one can stay in. Great beds and facilities. Excellent breakfast included. Parking. Eat at OPA Greek Taverna 1575 Argyle but book first!

      Great location

      from

      Great location for walking to the downtown area. Our room had the Oriental Wedding bed and although the room was very clean and we had a two person jacuzzi, the room seemed a bit dated.

      We would stay here again because of the location and price, but would try another room.

      It wasn't a bad place, just a little rundown, but nothing terrible. The locks on the doors didn't seem very secure.

      I've seen better

      from

      The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was perfect. Close to everything downtown which is a huge plus. We also stayed in the Vanderbilt room. The things that turned us off were, the attention to detail in the rooms. I do some carpentry work and notice where corners are cut to finish a job. Also when turning on the jacuzzi we were greated with some sort of algea from the jet nozzles. Looked like it hadn't been used for a while. I've stayed in many Inns, and B&B's, some cheap some expensive, and for the price you pay / night at the Waverley I expected more. Feb 2004

      A Superb Weekend

      from

      My wife and I just returned from a wonderful three-day stay in Halifax.

      The high point of our visit was the two nights that we spent at the Waverly Inn. The friendliness of the staff and the warrmth of the beautiful inn made us feel that we were guests in a private Victorian mansion. While we had the opportunity to stay in the Vanderbilt room, we were also able to see some of the other rooms. Each one was nicer that the last. The latest addition, a down-stairs friendship (breakfast) room, is a most pleasant place to begin the day. Thanks to Mr. Leventhal and his great staff.

      A nice relaxing stay!

      Excellent stay at Waverley Inn

      from

      A cozy hotel near the harbor and the city center with excellent rooms and free parking. It also offers free snacks during all day.

      A Definite Must Stay

      from

      My husband and I were there a few years ago and if we ever get back to Halifax it will be where we will stay. Even though it did not have the amenities of a larger hotel, the attention we received and the pleasantness of the staff more than made up for it. The location is perfect and the "continental breakfast" (they offer more than you think) is also perfect. The staff was wonderful and it was the first place that I had ever stayed that sent me a "thank you" note upon my return home. I just can't say enough about the Waverly.

      Great experience at Waverley Inn

      from

      Your search for a hotel in Halifax is over - stay at the Waverley Inn. My husband and I stayed there for several nights in the summer of 2001. We had an excellent stay. The location is great - a very short walk from downtown. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is full of beautiful furniture, even inside the rooms. The ever-open snack bar was very much appreciated. The included breakfast offerings were better than most, and it was great to be able to grab a free pastry or piece of fruit on the run any time of the day. The staff were courteous and very helpful. We will definitely stay there again if we go back to Halifax.

      Not too much happened - we made it from our hotel to the airport. The new Queen's Terminal at Heathrow - Term 2 - which Air Canada flies out of now - is quite nice. We were able to check in and get bag tags for the checked bags from a computer in the terminal, but had to wait in line to dump the bags. Chatted with a lovely couple from Scotland, I ...

      ... the emptiness without a care
      of helping free us. After a grueling hour of winch work and bumping the boat
      forward and back we gratefully free ourselves giving everyone a huge sigh of relief
      at not having to draw straws to jump into the freezing Atlantic to free us from
      below. With deep breaths and hot beverages we press on into the void.

      1600 nautical miles later, as the sun sets below the clouds
      in a purple and pink haze that glimmers on ...

      ... I had caught zilch. But then again I had not by a long chalk got out the rod at every possible fishing spot we had encountered. This was either because I had no licence for that area or because I was very much aware that for Diana it would have been supremely boring for her to hang around whilst I spent an hour or two pursuing any unsuspecting trout.

      We sadly parted company with Diana and Stephen along with Wendy and Jerry at Bob’s Lake ...

      ... a Visitor's Information Centre. We wanted to know the best place to park (on the cheap, preferably), and where some of the main attractions were. We had decided that we would do a bit of a walk around the city in the morning, snap some photographs, then head to the Alexander Keith's Brewery to enjoy some samples and some air conditioning.

      The first stop on our self-guided walking tour was a Starbucks. We could make up some story about how we wanted to check out ...
