Positive Reviews

Friendly professional staff

From your speedy check-in to your speedy check-out, the staff will see to your every need. With a multilingual front desk, porter and valet services, and daily housekeeping, you'll find the staff helpful, kind, and knowledgeable about the area.

In the center of town

Not only is the hotel close to popular landmarks like the Halifax Public Gardens and Citadel Hill, but it's also near the harbor and numerous shopping, dining, nightlife, and fun family activities. And many of these sights are a short walk or drive from the Lord Nelson Hotel.

Delicious hot breakfast

Each morning, for a very reasonable price, the hotel serves up a tasty spread of hot waffles, scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and juices. It's a great way to jumpstart your journey through Halifax.

Negative Reviews

Walls are a little thin

A number of guests reported that the hotel's walls don't adequately block the noise of other guests, hotel staff, and external activities. While this isn't surprising with a nearly 100-year-old hotel, sensitive sleepers may wish to bring headphones.

Poor wireless connection

Although the hotel does provide free Wi-Fi in all areas, previous visitors have mentioned that the signal strength can be unreliable, and maintaining a connection can be frustrating. For a stronger signal, you can request a room closer to the hub or bring a hot spot.

A few issues with the room

Prior visitors have noted a few problems with the hotel. Between small rooms for the price, outmoded décor and furnishings which could use an update, and noisy air conditioners, they feel aspects of the hotel could use a little work.
