convenient hub for sight-seeing

Pros: Excellent location, very convenient to attractions of downtown Halifax. Staff was most courteous / helpful. Atmosphere was quiet, conducive to rest
Cons: beds were unusually firm; required time to become accustomed.
Location: Harbor tours; shops & variety of delicious restaurants. Museum of Maritime History. Easy day trip to Peggy's Cove & other spots of shoreline beauty.
Being from Michigan, this was our first visit to Nova Scotia and we were interested in enjoying the natural beauty as well as learning something of the history and culture. The accommodations at St. Mary's provided us a convenient hub for planning out each day's excursions, and allowed for a mid-afternoon rest on most days before stepping out into evening activities as well. Having no-one whom we knew to guide us, we needed to rely on the kindness of strangers. We found that the St. Mary's staff, as well as the general folk of Halifax, received us well and stepped up to help us when we were in need (such as understanding the use of credit-parking machines). We left the area being very pleased with our trip, and knowing far more about Halifax specifically and Nova Scotia in general than we had previously known. From Halifax we travelled west to Digby, to experience the Bay of Fundy and to take the ferry across to St. John and back across New Brunswick into Maine. If we are able, we hope to make another trip to the area, specifically to travel north to Cape Bretton National Park and to be able to hike portions of the Cabot Trail. Thank you.
