The Waverley Inn was awesome, the staff couldn't have been better. The area has a lot to see and do, and great places to eat and drink. If you are looking for a hotel that isn't one of the cookie cutter chains, then look no further.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent 2 nights - room and bath quite tiny, but ambiance and location are terrific, and full breakfast is a real plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable rooms"
Very pleasant stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent in every way. Staff is very helpful and friendly! Our favoutire place to stay in Halifax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly, helpful staff. Perfect location. Very good breakfast buffet. Looking forward to staying there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We only stayed one night, but found the room to be very small ( no room to put our luggage) As well it was very warm and the window air conditioner was too loud to have it on all night - did not sleep well at all. Breakfast was not great - very little selection and not tasty or well presented! On a positive note the staff were very good and the history […] of the building is very unique and interesting.

We loved our stay at the Waverly. The Inn was absolutely beautiful and the history of the Inn added to our enjoyment. The breakfast had everything one could wish for and was included in the rate. The free parking was another excellent bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"There's a Small Hotel"
A very good quality small hotel in Halifax. We've stayed at bigger places, but they're never quite the same, so we keep going back to the Waverley. Its Victorian charm is its biggest asset, and it has a great location downtown. You can walk to the water, the farmer's market, Spring Garden and a few good restaurants. It's also the only downtown hotel […] I can think of that doesn't charge for parking and includes breakfast. A great value. A few criticisms: the doors to the rooms are hollow, which keeps out none of the noise from the hallway. Our ground floor room was also closer to where employees smoke outside, and the smell somehow managed to waft in. Otherwise, highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best pillows we've had"
08/16/14 djne11026 Gateshead
We stayed two nights at the Waverley and whilst it is odd there is lots to like. The pillows, quilt and bed were VERY comfortable The service was good. The decor was fun The location is very central and convenient The breakfast was OK There was easy parking Free access to two PCs with printers Free tea/coffee snack in the afternoon However Our room had very little natural light and very noisy AirCon We would return but ask for a different room.
"Excellent location, helpful staff"

Everything you want to do in Halifax is a short walk from the Waverley Inn, and they have parking (a premium in the heart of Halifax). It has the feeling of the late 19th or early 20th century, the "boom town" days of Halifax. Nice breakfast spread. However, this is not the place if you want to avoid stairs.
"Beautiful historic stay"
08/10/14 tanya j
This is not a modern inn .. step back in time with this beautiful building .. beautiful rooms. If you have trouble with stairs stay on the main floor. Great location only a few minutes walk to pier 21 and the harbor walk. My one recommendation to the hotel would be for the big price we pay to have muffins or something out for those of us that leave early. We were told at 630am there was nothing left yet I saw some employer walking with plates of them for -later-. I'm sure someone could have gone into the breakfast room for us (opening later that morning) to grab a scone or something .. took you from a 5 to a 4
"Lovely but odd"
08/09/14 Catrinkah Guelph, Canada
The hotel is an interesting historical building. The choice of décor is odd -- there are all sorts of antiques which are not really functional or decorative -- they're just antiques. for example, there were antiques in our room that would not have been used in bedrooms. It was difficult to find a power outlet that was not in use that was functional (for charging cell phones, etc.) The day staff was helpful, but the night staff seemed a little offhand. It was quite a climb to our room. Parking was handy, and the hotel is close to much of what you'd want to do in Halifax. I notice people mentioning the snacks at night -- the snacks had usually run out by the time we got to them, and we weren't out that late, and I am suspicious that the decaf tea was really caffeinated, given the disturbed sleep I had one night. Breakfast was dismal.
"Another wonderful stay at the awesome Waverley Inn"
The best value for your money in Halifax!!! Beautiful hotel, perfectly located within walking distance of harbour and citadel and many great restaurants. The inn is decorated with gorgeous antiques and rooms are great!!! Awesome hot breakfast included with your room. You can't go wrong with this location - have stayed here twice, (five years apart), and it is always great!!
"Would like to Return to the Waverley Inn"
08/07/14 BETHANY D POMFRET CENTER
The Waverley is a beautiful old inn, well taken care of and clean. Easy walking distance to the harbor and off the street parking, a great place to take in Halifax on foot. My husband and I had a beautiful queen room on the first floor and our friends had an equally nice king room also on the first floor. Breakfast was not the best but it worked for us. We had no real negatives to our visit and the staff was great!
"Not Perfect, but..."
07/23/14 Corrina A Saint Thomas, Canada
Our room was at the very top of the hotel, and it was a long climb as there are no elevators there. Enjoyed the eclectic furnishings and portraits and the friendly staff. The tea and "sweets" available near reception were a nice touch. The room was a little "tight," but very clean and tidy. Housekeeping did a really great job throughout our three-day stay. The bed could have been more comfortable. Not enough space for two, and I kept slipping down towards the side. Breakfast wasn't amazing, but certainly adequate. Wi-Fi cut out a few times...Really great location, just a few blocks down to the boardwalk and many good restaurants nearby.
"Not So Charming"
07/20/14 mcbr Dallas, Texas
I am sorry to report negatively about this hotel, as I love old restored inns rather than brand new generic hotels. Yet I was most disappointed when we checked in here. They do have free parking and a free breakfast, but that didn't make up for the rest. Our room had one of the loud floor unit A/C machines (which did help drown out some of the street noise) and was overcrowded with huge walnut beds and a dresser, wardrobe, vanity and two uncomfortable upholstered chairs. There was really no room for us! And though I am not surprised at small bathrooms in old hotels, this was very small with no counter space. The decor was overpowering rather than charming or elegant. Sadly it's a"no" for me on this inn.
"Lots of Benefits, a few drawbacks"
07/09/14 T D Vancouver, Canada
First the positives: friendly staff, historic charm, great free parking, central location, and breakfast included. All of this for what is typical charge for a brand hotel in Halifax (without parking, which is more $, and no breakfast of any kind). Negatives: Major negative as others have noted is street noise from the bar across the street. If you are a light sleeper, it can make for a rough night. If you're a solid sleeper, it's probably not an issue. Breakfast is 'ok'. Was not expecting much based on others' reviews, and so it was fine.Gave us a start on the day. Seemed to be constantly running out of things though and couldnt keep up with the demand for food items. Probably the hotel should pay a bit more attention to the breakfast portion of the stay.
"A bit hit and miss"
07/08/14 Dave H Salisbury, United Kingdom
We were drawn here by good reviews, but found the reality a disappointment. On the good side, there is a large free car park and Christina in reception and the chamber maid were extremely helpful and efficient. The room, however, was tight on space (too much Victoriana!),lacking a proper wardrobe or somewhere to open a couple of suitcases. Being on the ground floor there was some noise both from outside the building and from the corridor inside. The worst feature of the hotel, however, was the breakfast. This was the poorest breakfast I have had in years. There was virtually no hot choice, just some sad looking beans, scrambled eggs that needed carving, ham, pancakes and hash browns. On our second day there was no scrambled eggs or bacon. When we asked the cook/waiter why not he said that when he was on duty he didn't produce these as 'lots of people are allergic to them'! Why this person is employed in the hospitality industry defeats me. The rest of the buffet was poor, they ran out of orange juice, and the range on offer was very limited. There were no healthy options apart from whole apples or oranges. The 'china' was mainly melamine - all in all it was a bit like camping...... For the price charged for the room of over 200 dollars a night with taxes it was very poor value. Sorry guys, but you need to see what more switched on hotels are offering these days, as your service is outdated.
