8.2.Very Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Great location. 15 minutes to Downtown Halifax. 1 Exit away from Starbucks and other fast food restaurants, McDonalds/Tim-Hortons.Close to many gas locations. However, very disappointed in the fact that they are not cleaning the rooms because of ''Covid Restrictions'' set up by the provincial government of "Nova Scotia". They average 40 cases a day in October of 2021 in a population that holds over 500,000 habitants. Makes no sense to me because the hotel does ask for vacation proof(double dose) to all there guess. So, why not clean the rooms if the guess have their 2 doses ? Pool and Spa were closed for repairs but it was not mentioned when I booked. Also, the guess would put there garbage in front of there respective doors to be picked up by the hotel staff. When I returned at night, the same bags left in the morning where still there ! The breakfast choices where very limited to just 3 items for hot food and 3 for cold foods. Also, breakfast time was only from 7Am to 9Am ? Like, I had to leave before 7 almost every weekly morning so I was not able to get breakfast on most day of my stay. What upset me the most is the fact that the hotel clerk did not even ask me, ''How was your stay '' ? That is unacceptable for someone who logged 4 nights in this hotel. I have no issue that the rules for Covid. However, the fact that they accept to keep garbage lying around in the hotel corridors and no rooms being cleaned is by far the worst way to protect guess from other virus.
