Ascendence Harbourside Mansion B&B - Halifax

3 star B&B Halifax

24 Northumberland Lane - Halifax

Price starting from CAD 75 .00
This charming Victorian-era 4 star bed & breakfast was built in 1891 and sits nestled amidst a peaceful patch of trees in Halifax, Canada. The Ascendence Harbourside Mansion B&B is family-friendly, creating a home-away-from-home environment for the entire family.

When you arrive, guests will enjoy the calm feeling of the hotel's lush green yard. Later, check your email in the privacy of your recently renovated guestroom (as of May 2012) on a laptop offered by the hotel or on a computer provided in the guest media room. When 5 o'clock rolls around, be sure to wander over to the Grand Reception Room for tea and dessert while the kids stay entertained with a complimentary children's club.

The sites of Halifax lie just 4.5 km away, so you can simply walk or take a short drive; spa services, including massage, are available right next door. The attentive staff will be happy to answer any questions and help with sightseeing arrangements; the B&B rents bicycles.
