Location was important for me and I love the elegance of the hotel
We checked into the Lord Nelson for a special event; “La Vie En Rose Valentine's dance.” It was the second year, that Nova Scotia's band Swingology, hosted this great event. It started with a swing dance class offered by a couple of instructors from the University Swing Dance Club, which warmed up the crowd and got some “rusty” attendees, like us, a bit more confident. The dance was terrific. The music is perfect, perfect for the theme, perfect for selection of music, perfect for dancing. Not only you can hear yourself think but you can carry conversation while dancing or sitting and still enjoy the music. What made it even better was an addition of guest performer, Steve Normandin, from Montreal, romantic singer and masterful accordion player. The meal at the Arms Restaurant was great despite the Valentines Day rush
Reservation was made through booking.com, so called Genius discount, deluxe room with queen size bed. Several things that almost spoiled the weekend. As we arrived our room turned out to be two double beds. When enquiring at the desk, we were informed that with booking.com there is frequent misunderstanding and that what is deluxe for booking.com is not what the hotel calls deluxe, and, that there was no mention of queen size bed on hotel's system. We were however given another room with queen size bed. This room however was very small. No problem we thought, and perhaps it was not but the bathroom was so tight that it was, at least for me, impossible to close the door or get into bathtub. On entering the hotel from the parkade, we discovered that the railings are freshly painted. The warning sign was face down on the ground, but we saw it too late and my wife’s coat was ruined. We have not received much sympathy from the front desk, only some explanation about draft and signs “don't want to stay up”. To summarize three attendants took our name and promised that manager will get back to us. It has been now more than two weeks – no response! There were some other small points which made us less than happy with the accommodation like two of three night lamps in our room did not work (one did not have a bulb) or windows in a hallway, on at least three floors) were propped open in such way that they could not be closed despite of horrific rain and storm and water pooling on a sill and floor.
room was ok and foyer was really nice.
Exterior facade boxy and dull.
parking not included in rate
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.
