“Loved it”


'Great view on top of hill. Superior double room was like it was new it was so clean. Food great we had evening meals as well as breakfast. Only dust we could find was on top of large shower head because we were doing a " 4 in the bed style" look over. Everything as spot on and we stay away every weekend in different hotels.'


We are the perfect pick of hotels in Halifax for location and quality. Our standard double rooms have been designed with your comfort in mind. All our double rooms continue the country theme of our ‘log wall’, each having a console table masterfully cut from the trunk of a tree.
