Halifax, Canada
Reviewed 1 December 2015

We absolutely love this hotel. Very helpful staff, comfortable, well-kept rooms, great location, and without all the cut-and-paste blah of those big chains. The one thing they are messing-up is the breakfast. Lord N, please end the murder-of-eggs that occurs at the omelette station. Guests, in the absence of any other decent breakfast options in the death-row march to the...

Wow BlueBoatll, what a review, perhaps you should be an author solely based on your description of your omelette! We appreciate all of your positive feedback, and we apologize that our omelette was the one thing holding us back from making your stay perfect! We hope to see you again.

I chose a "petite" room. It was totally adequate for one person. The room amenities are great - including a charging dock for devices and a very comfortable bed. Shower worked well, good coffee provided and a fridge, TV, desk and chair - everything I needed even tho' it was "petite". The room environment control (A/C or heat) was totally...

The staff here are very helpful, front desk staff went to the trouble of finding a conference room away from other guests so I could play my saxophone and the concierge found helped me work out where to by some Christmas presents avoiding all the myriad of road works going on in Halifax. The food is good and reasonably priced.

From the doorman "Moose" who took care of our dinner reservations, to the front desk, to the cleanliness and decor of our room we experienced exceptional quality service. The hotel is directly across from a beautiful park. There are restaurants within walking distance. The hotel also offers a buffet breakfast. Bravo!

We booked a stay with the Lord Nelson hotel in a package trip through Canada. Arriving at the Lord Nelson hotel we were amazed by its sheer beauty. Rooms are beautifully maintained and you feel as if you're in a five star resort everytime you walk through its main hall. Breakfast is just amazing, offering a plethora of food from...

I have stayed here several times prior to relocating to Halifax and every time I enjoy the experience. Quick, polite and helpful staff and a large amount of the rooms have been refurbished and renovated. We had a corner room during our last stay and were very pleased by both the decor, layout, beds and spaciousness. There really isn't anything...

Go Retro! The mesmerizing lobby of the Lord Nelson Hotel begs its guest to wonder "when was it built"? With carved in-laid wooden ceiling tiles and brass handrails, the 87 year old Lord Nelson hotel, seems to have faithfully retrained its original charm and elegance thanks to staff like Ken who methodically polishes the brass decor - including the postbox...

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip and was pleased with my stay. It is in a good location with lots of restaurants nearby, and a short walk to downtown.
