    Perfect

    I booked the BW Chocolate Lake Hotel because it was listed as pet friendly - and I was not disappointed. First, Cocoa, the resident chocolate lab, greeted us at the door. What a lovely dog. Second, upon approaching the registration desk, every employee was smiling and friendly - especially when they were babysitting an infant dog on the pillow behind them. Thirdly, I realize there is a charge for dog-sitting, but on 3 different occasions during my two-day stay, staff were walking pets in a very congenial manner.

    Great

    I have stayed at this hotel many times but this was the first time in the motel section. Very nice! The staff at the desk and the restaurant are excellent. We will always stay if we can.

    Nothing except the price but then it was excellent value for the money.

    Location. Free parking.

    The noisy room (it was near the elevator). The poor layout of the bathroom. On Saturday night, they had a wedding and there was no parking spaces anywhere on the property. Earlier, when I asked the clerk, they said that was never a problem, but we found out different. The musty smell in the room.

    Wonderful hotel located close to downtown yet it has a relaxing feeling. Everything from the rooms to the breakfast plus the greeter dog made it feel like a home away from home.

    This was out very first hotel stay with our 4 year old son. The staff was great and we enjoyed every bit of our stay. My son just loved coco the dog and we will most defiantly be back. The hot buffet breakfast that was included was a great plus. We were more then stuffed by the time we got out of the dinning room. Beautiful view of the lake as well!

    Staff very friendly After a 30 hour train ride from Toronto the upgrade was very much appreciated. It made my day. I relaxed in the tub and my friend turned on the baseball game.

    I got the directions wrong getting to the room, never mind, we got there with some help.

    We loved the fact that we were only 5 min. From Halifax, but on a beautiful lake. We had a good-sized room with a lovely lake view. The hotel restaurant (with terrace overlooking the lake) served very good food at a reasonable price, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The hot breakfast was very good. We would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it.

    There were no chairs to sit at the lakeside to enjoy the beauty of the location. Some lawn chairs would have been very welcome.

    The location. Close to shopping. No heavy traffic noise.The view from our 8th floor room overlooking the lake was fabulous.

    Limited menu and the very specific times for meals.
