Score from 242 reviews Very good
room was ok and foyer was really nice.
Exterior facade boxy and dull.
The breakfast buffet was wonderful. The location of your hotel was great for our appointments at the neighboring hospital.
The price of the hotel was a bit high and I was extremely surprised to not have parking included with our stay.
Room is very spacious and comfortable, and staffs are friendly and well trained. Location of the hotel is also nice: although it takes 20-30 min to sea front area by walk, neighboring Spring Garden Rd. has a lot of good shops and restaurants.
Breakfast buffet was rather poor, except omelet which was made in front of us. Kinds of foods were small and there was no green salad.
Location, Staff were excellent, Room was roomy and had everything one needs, great beds and the ambiance of the Lord Nelson never gets tiring. A beautiful Hotel indeed!
Nothing to mention.
The room and location
Thin walls I mean you can hear everything. Also the suprise overnight parking charge which I wasn't aware of until I got my bill. $27 really?
Excellent location. Very old historic Halifax hotel.
Asked for a wake-up call - it never came. Lucky I woke up! Checking out was not asked how I enjoyed my stay - mentioned the lack of the wake up call and the answer was "sorry". Not acceptable for a business traveller.
Always good for location - that and the staff keeps me coming back
I've stayed at the Nelson 6 times in the last 6 months, and my rooms seems to be getting smaller with each visit. I can only hope that next time I stay (due to be in town for March) I am afforded more spacious quarters.
Everything about the room (including the booking of the room) and the front desk staff was absolutely perfect.
Problems with WiFi. Dining experience (evening meal) was so-so at best.
The location is excellent close to shopping, cinemas and the theatre. There are many restaurants, coffee shops within a short walk.
For convenience the parking is excellent but it is a bi pricey.
I love the class of the hotal, that is not around much anymore and the history of it all . I really enjoyed my stay and will be comiing again 5 stars
Front desk agents
The aircondation and the heater work together! what the !I was freezing. The arm restaurant has the worst food I ever had. wifi and the parking is not free. And speaking of which its a solving puzzle when u want to get the hotel from the parking lot.
Cost of parking
I like the breakfast, not included with the price of the room, location is good, and clean.
The room is boring, too small, no seats, no sofa, no view and when I asked for a view they said I have to change the room type and pay way more. When I first arrived the garbage can was not empty, no soap in the bathroom. The coffee in the room is ridiculous I couldn't have a sip, no exercise facility, no quite place to sit and have coffee except for the restaurant. In general room, restaurant and the whole hotel is too dark and too English. The staff in the restaurant are fine but seemed depressed, and not very welcoming!! I had dinner once, no bread no butter served, while it was pricy. The parking was 8 or 12 dollars per day last year and this year jumped to 24 dollars!! I stayed in Homewood the last time I visited and it was brighter and have more facilities with just a few dollars more. I don't recommend this hotel to any one, because of the other new hotels and with the bus you can reach any place with no need to be in the downtown, the city is small and reachable by any kind of transportation.
It was comfortable and all. Great location
Wifi was horrible
Staff were friendly and helpful Close to everything
Superb accommodations and comfort in the heart of beautiful Halifax!
I didn't know how to connect to the Wifi, but maybe it was my ignorance!
Friendly staff and a beautiful building
Breakfast buffet was sub standard and the bathrooms where tiny
Liked the comfort of the bed in the room. Desk staff was excellent.
Room extremely small. Bathroom very small
We found the front desk staff to be very helpful and friendly . Our room was comfortable and quiet, the bathroom very well appointed. Highly recommended..
The hotel itself is very comfortable and the staff overall were very good. Just one front desk person seemed ditzy and unsuited to the job.The location works very well.
It felt like a money grab to be asked to pay for better wifi service. I feel that a good wifi service should be available inclusive of the room fee. Our toilet did not flush on arrival. I asked for it to be looked at which it was in a timely manner after we had left the room. However, the note said they fixed the bath. So the toilet continued to be erratic. When I told front desk there was no apology, no compensation, nothing really. The same girl also appeared to forget that we had asked for a porter to help with our baggage too on the morning we had to leave and I found it necessary to track him down. She also gave us completely wrong directions on how to exit the city - so wrong we could hardly believe it! By this point we'd given up on this front desk girl. We hope to return to the Lord Nelson because we like the location but we did feel we didn't quite get the full service one would expect given the cost and I would probably check out some other locations for the next business trip - although would not be adverse to staying again and give it another chance. I have attended several seminars, events and visited with other people staying there and have had some positive experience - but not bowled over I'm afraid. More staff on hand and an overhaul on refreshed training might be a good investment for the hotel.
Location is great; walking distance to city centre. Parking is convenient.
Cumbersome check out process (took 15 minutes); under-staffed front desk; tv and remote didn't work.
Very central location, great for walking in any direction. Point Pleasant Park very close, also Dalhousie U., NSCAD, new Central Library, VIA station and Pete's (!). Very good shopping and restaurants nearby. Friendly helpful staff, good meals at "The Arms." Self service laundry facility (24h). "Petite" room, with fridge was perfect.
Directions (signage) for walking through from the shopping centre/parking garage could be better.
Proximity to down town and school Great breakfast
Not much bad to say. Front desk agent was a bit prickly.
It felt very peaceful .
