The Waverley Inn is a little slice of history nestled in busy downtown Halifax. If you are looking for lacquered surfaces and sleek modern lines, the Waverley Inn is not for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for sumptuously appointed, historically-accurate suites and an inn that looks like you are still nestled in the early 1900s, then... More

This is a genuine inn takes you back in time...what a hotel would have looked like at the turn of the 19th century! Lots of antique furnishings, but contemporary facilities. Each room has its own character, is cosy, an extremely clean. The hotel is conveniently located so that dining, shopping and entertainment facilities are all within easy walking distance. Parking...

We stayed here twice, once on our way across Canada and another on our way back home. Both time we loved it. We had two different rooms. The first being on the second floor and the second on the main floor. They were both very clean and comfy and quiet. We really liked the one on the main floor, we... More

I loved the Waverly Inn. An old house transformed in a charming hotel. Antique furniture in the room. I felt like I was in a little bed & breakfast in England. Great and friendly service. They offered tea at the lobby at all times. Great location. Had to take stairs to the room. Not accessible. Recommended for couples or girls... More

We happened upon the Waverley Inn after dark in an unfamiliar city. The front desk concierge was so friendly and helpful. I could tell it was going to be a pleasant experience.The hotel is beautifully furnished as well as our king room. A wonderful complimentary breakfast awaited us. Although our stay was brief, it was memorable.

Really enjoyed the ambiance of this B&B. The room was big enough and really cozy. The inn is very central and well located , at 3 min to the train station. The only small objection is the 150$ they preauthorize your visa before you step in, in addition to your nights there... Still great place to be in Halifax!

A beautiful old mansion. No lift but Chris on reception took our cases up to our room for us. Our room had a very comfortable bed and a good en-suite. When we arrived the weather was very humid so we were glad of the air conditioning unit but had to turn it off at night as it was very noisy.... More
