    Great Location and Fabulous View

    Very nice hotel with a great view and fantastic staff! Lost a point only because housekeeping forgot something every day. Not a huge deal but the consistency of forgetfulness was apparent. One day they forgot to refill body wash. Another day they forgot face cloths. Another day they never replenished the coffee cups and a separate day they forgot to refill coffee. Another day they forgot to replace the robe. I always tip housekeeping every day and still did even with the forgotten items. I know these people are super busy and have much on their plates, as well as being likely understaffed, Maybe someone will see this and create a checklist for them. Stayed 8 nights as a VIA Rail employee.

    Definitely recommend

    The hotel was so nice. Modern and clean. The reception had iced flavored water and apples. We felt welcome. The sea view on the 10th floor we got was awesome (thanks Liz). The location was perfect with an Atlantic Real Canadian Store 2 minutes walk away for convenience shopping. The pool did not have that chemical chlorine smell. Definitely recommend.

    Stay at The Nova Scotian

    Rooms were impeccably clean, staff were helpful, courteous, and professional. The weather wasn't the greatest, but the hotel was so nice and clean and oh so fancy, so it made up for it. I'll be staying again, for sure.
