We spent two nights at the Waverley. What a wonderful start to our Canadian trip. We were enchanted when we saw our beautiful room. Victorian but with central heating & modern bathroom. We had a great welcome on arrival & all the staff were pleasant & helpful. There is a complimentary breakfast provided. Free parking is a bonus but we... More

Our short stay at the beautifully appointed Waverley Inn was spoiled by a frequent but inconsistent rhythmic drip of rainwater onto the aircon box outside our window, which kept us awake all night. The tinny sound of water on metal was clearly heard (despite closing window) all night. When we were asked at checkout time if our stay was ok,... More

For a last minute reservation, Waverley Inn was a great find. Its location makes it easy access to down-town everything. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Walking up three flights was a bit unpleasant but the trick is to carry as little luggage as possible - just the absolutely necessary. I'll know next time ! Free parking was a... More

To say the Waverley Inn is beautiful would be an understatement. There is nothing I would change about this place. A great location right downtown, clean, friendly service, gorgeous stately rooms. Our room was large and spacious, free wifi, and all the amenities you could ask for. I would highly recommend it for anyone coming to halifax!

The fluffy beds with their gigantic pillows and duvets are worth the cost alone. But when you add this in to the price, the beautifully maintained building and the friendly service this is a steal compared to local hotels. Comes with antique four poster beds, good sized rooms, a nice array of amenities in your room, Wifi, afternoon biscuits and... More

We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon. We booked the Oriental room which was the most interesting room I'd ever stayed in.

We stayed for 2 nights in a Queen room at $175/night not including taxes. I think if you stay here, you're going for the experience of the old-world rooms etc. and not the modern conveniences of most hotels.
