Family stay
Rooms where clean, nice and comfortable yet the bathroom was a bit outdated. As for the Service we didn’t use any so I may not be able to judge here. Receptionist I think her name was Liz was super nice and friendly. Lovely and easy check in/out experience. Location was very good as well, unless u need to go out of Halifax u will not need a car if u r staying at this location.
