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

"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.
"Noisy room ruined stay."
This charming looking city inn is well located just a few blocks from the Halifax waterfront and steps from bars and restaurants. Unfortunately the loud live music from the bar across the street made sleeping impossible. The polite staff agreed to ending our stay early with no cancellation penalty. No elevator and creaky uneven stairs but still retains its 19th century charm.

Just got back from 2 weeks in the Canadian Maritimes. This Inn is located near the wharf, and Pier 21 attractions. We were able to leave our car in the free parking lot and walk to sites. Nice breakfast buffet, comfortable room, and free Internet service. We had a room on the first floor, away from the street, and it was very quiet. Lovely sitting area.
"Outstanding Bed & Breakfast Type Hotel in a Superb Location"
06/10/14 William L Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
This is a great place to stay, plenty to see and do in walking distance. Right downtown. The decor is charming. The service outstanding. The breakfast was not especially great, but that is about all I could complain about. And I'm stretching to find something that was not perfect.
05/29/14 Jerry and Carol... F Shelburne, Canada
Stay here regularly whenever we need to go to Halifax. The decor is charming, the rooms are comfortable and the staff very gracious and attentive. Super location with several nice restaurants nearby. If you are looking for old charm this is the place.

Vanja and I enjoyed both stays at The Waverley Inn. We spent two nights there at the beginning of May, at the onset of a three week tour of the Atlantic Provinces, and two nights at the end of the three weeks. Both rooms were on the main floor. The first room was a little nicer , particularly the bathroom - the one right beside the check in desk, but both were lovely, spotless, with very comfortable beds. The old world charm of the building is very special, the desk staff are welcoming, warm, helpful and thoughtful. The breakfast provided offered a nice hot variety every day, with an ample cold selection, juices and hot beverages. Parking is free and on site. Wifi was speedy and worked well. The location is right downtown on Barrington - very central and within walking distance of the harbour and a half a block from The Henry House for a delicious bowl of "English Onion Soup" or a great before dinner drink.
"old creepy furniture and ugly wall paper"
05/12/14 minusbasin Amherst, Canada
the good - close to downtown includes parking and continental breakfast the bad - the decor is old ugly antiques and ugly wallpaper the staff talks about the guests within earshot of other guests and they are not friendly the building is rumored to be haunted, and someone tried to get in my room one night at 4 am. I phoned the desk, they said they would be up to look around, they didn't come up. it's across the street from a very noisy jazz bar and a hostel don't stay in one of the rooms off the lobby, too noisy, especially the one beside the coffee/snak table there is no elevator, so long way up if you have mobility issues it's an old old building, so i found it quite cold in my room, took forever to get it to warm up with those old radiators
