"Not worth the money"
Ugh. The hotel is across the street from a hospital. Not the park. You have to be buzzed in ( recommends the neighborhood doesn't it?). We waited for several minutes for the staff to let us in. We dealt with three different staff - one mediocre, one downright rude and one quite pleasant. Room was extremely small. Our tv didn't work. Quiet, though. Breakfast […] was typical. It absolutely is not worth what we paid. But Halifax is surprisingly expensive for a small city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly, comfortable, clean"
Away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown core so no party folks to contend with, this lovely B & B is a short walk to Spring Garden Road. With a light self-serve breakfast in the morning and tea in the late afternoon, this is a great maritime experience. I will stay here the next time I'm back in town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful spot in Halifax"
The service, room, and location were all outstanding. The staff were all very friendly and the room was very cozy with a good television and spacious bathroom. The only minor quibble is a lack of free parking on weekdays but if you are resourceful enough you can find nearby streets that you can park on overnight during the week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Garden South Park Inn Thank you for your kind words and great rating. Likewise we cannot say enough about our wonderful guest.
"Pleasant hotel, but away from waterfront"
A pleasant place to stay, but further away from the waterfront than I expected. Halifax is hilly and walking from lower areas such as the bus/train station is mostly upwards. A taxi is recommended. Reception closes at around 10pm so make arrangements if arriving late. Within two or three blocks there are quite a few restaurants and coffee shops, plus […] the city gardens and the citadel. For the waterfront area, be prepared to walk a much greater distance. Breakfast has plenty to offer and is served in an airy front room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Satisfactory. The continental breakfast was only adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Place to Stay"
The hotel is homey and cozy. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The location is exceptional, the waterfront is no more than a 10 minute walk as is the Citadel and the Public Gardens. So much to do an see in such a small area. The Continental Breakfast was an added plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Everything is bad in here"
They still own me 24$!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Garden South Park Inn Hello I am sorry to hear that your stay at our Inn was not ideal. I admit that I am surprised to see you were overcharged as this is not our policy here. I will definitely follow up to see if any person was incorrectly charged. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
I stayed here before and it was okay but this time my experience was terrible. The room was fine but the mattress was old and tired. The sheets wouldn't even fit properly on it. With two people, there was a sag in the middle and we both got up in the morning after a terrible time trying to sleep. We had a three night booking but we booked at another […] hotel and moved out after one night. Never again. The owners should be ashamed of themselves. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Petite chambre avec chaises et matelas inconfortables. Le matelas devrait être changé.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Je recommanderai le Garden south park inn à mes amis et famille. Rapport qualité/prix très correct pour être à 5 minutes à pied du centre ville et de tous les restaurants et pubs. Tres propre, calme. Chambre un peu petite, mais pas tres grave quand on est là pour dormir!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Leuk en klein hotel kort bij centrum"
Hotel ligt aan een doorgaande weg met veel parkeer gelegenheid. Hotel is knus en je kan gratis thee of koffie pakkenGenuine Expedia guest review

We are also proud to say we are a small and comfortable Inn with a great location. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Hope to have you visit us again in the future.
"Très accueillant, très bon service, bien placé"
Notre séjour fut très agréable, nous recommandons cet hôtel. L'accueil, l'amabilité du personnel, le petit déjeuner très correcte et sa salle ouverte toute la journée avec café à disposition sont autant d'attentions qui ont rendu le séjour très agréable. L'hôtel est idéalement situé, tout juste au nord du centre-ville, près du jardin public. Un seul […] bémol : une chambre située trop près de l'accueil et donc exposée aux bruits. La prochaine fois, nous choisirons une des chambres de l'étage, bien qu'un peu plus chère. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Our room was quiet and reasonably well appointed. The main draw for this establishment is the excellent location. Easy walking distance to the harbor, many good restaurants and drinking establishments as well as the Victorian Garden and the Citadel. Breakfasts are nothing memorable, however. With the exception of the TV comment, Landrys05's review is essentially the same as mine. If my wife and I are ever fortunate enough to return to Halifax, we will stay at the Garden South Park Inn.
"Could have been better"
08/07/14 moodemoiselle Montreal, Canada
When you first walk in the hotel is very cute, it has a nice antique look, but my excitement quickly faded once we got to the reception. The women at the desk was not welcoming at all, in fact she made us feel like we were bothering her. The was adequate but nothing extraordinary, it definitely did not have that cozy little charm you felt when you walked in or that one generally associate with a bed and breakfast. The room was a mish mesh of random furniture, the bed was hard and one of the closet doors did not open. One of the most attractive features about the hotel is the location. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to the docks and there are so many wonderful restaurants and pubs minutes away. The breakfast left some thing to be desired, if you were lucky there was coffee ready and a couple of fruit. I am sad to say that on my next trip to Halifax I will be staying somewhere else.
"Weekend Getaway to Halifax"
08/06/14 Landrys05 Halifax, Canada
We stayed here for an anniversary a few years ago,so definetely noticed the more modern renovations they have done(although the old school charm from before was nice,as well) We were in a Queen room on the 3rd floor. View not the best(overlooking a cemetary) but oh well... The room was lovely and modern. Bed very comfy,air conditioning worked well,2 shower heads(1 a rainfall)...very nice. The room was quiet-heard nothing overnight. Staff were friendly. My only reason for not giving it an excellent rating was the poor TV reception in the room and the dried out muffins at the continental breakfast.The rest of the bkft. was fine. We would definetely come back and we would recommend this Inn!
"A Very Nice Stay"
07/14/14 Azevedo_Chris Vancouver, Canada
Our 2-week trip through the Maritimes began with 3 nights at the Garden South Park Inn - my wife, our 19-month old daughter and myself. We also stayed here for our final night of the 2-weeks which became 2 nights courtesy of hurricane Arthur delaying our flight by a day. We were fortunate to be able to stay put in our same room for the additional night. Nicely situated, it met all our expectations without issue - we had a very nice stay. I only give it a Very Good because I save the Excellent status for those experiences that go above and beyond my expectations.
"Shocked then Surprised"
07/11/14 Tony F Abu Dhabi
I must admit having arrived from Toronto in the late afternoon and a miserable day, low cloud and rain i was ready to check in for some comfort. The taxi driver had verbal diareah but knew where he was going, just. My shock that evening was to find myself standing in front of a property that looked a cross between the Adams Family residence and a crack house! HOWEVER, in the morning having checked in and gathered my senses, was different. The property is in a specific old design, which had been rubbed down for redecoration. Painters and decorators clambered over the building the following few days. Inside it was cosy, the decor being a 1960's English B&B. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast setting perhaps a little bit old fashioned these days, but fitted the style of the property. Location very good, opposite the university and only a short walk up to the shops.

A pleasant stay for one night, we were on the 3rd floor overlooking a ancient graveyard. The room was clean, large enough for 2 twin beds. The decorations on the wall didn't really match anything, but the all in all it was a nice spot. Breakfast was a self serve with bread, bagels, home made muffins and sweet breads, yogurt, cereals, juice, coffee and tea. Overall a lovely dining room with white china on the walls which gave it a more intimate home feel. We didn't use it, but there was also a computer room on our floor.

one night in this place . My wife said from the outside where did you find this place. But once inside it was a different story. ultra modern, the room was fantastic, the innkeeper was great the breakfast provided was out of this world. would recommend this place in minute. great location, it looked like all the rooms were booked by the amount of people having breakfast in the morning, everyone loved the place. do yourself a favour its great
"Excellent value in Halifax."
06/09/14 Jon F Tauranga, New Zealand
We are a mature couple and have been travelling for 13 months. We initially booked this hotel for 7 nights but extended it by 3 nights. We return to Halifax in mid July and have booked another two nights then. That really says it all! This is a lovingly maintained character building close to the hospital and university. It is 2 blocks from the main shopping street and about a 10 minute walk to the waterfront and the Citadel. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars within an easy stroll. The girls at reception (Marie and Tisha) are so warm and friendly and helpful, they are real gems. There is a nice breakfast area and lounge areas. There is strong WiFi throughout the entire building. The bedrooms are large, warm and sunny with an AirCon and loads of space. The bathroom is adequate with tons of hot water at a good pressure. We appreciated the availability of a laundry on site. The included continental breakfast was just fine. The free hot drinks and supper in the evenings were also a nice bonus. I could not imagine anything better; this place has real soul.
"I love CLEAN...."
05/22/14 Elizabeth N Greenfield, NS
Cleanliness is top priority for me when I stay in a hotel room and this B&B fit the bill perfectly! Courteous staff a priority...again, a big check mark. I have stayed here in the past and will most definitely stay here again. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, will located place to stay in downtown Halifax, this is your home away from home.
"Your second home"
05/20/14 Sofia P Sydney, Canada
I stayed there once for four days. Since that visit I never change my choice when I go to Halifax. This hotel is situated in the heart of downtown. It is very close to everything in this city. The atmosphere of the hotel is great. Staff - very friendly and helpful to tourists. Rooms and the whole building was very clean. I cannot wait to go there again. I'm coming! :))
